Asuncion was of strong character but with a good sense of humor always having a smile on his face; a hardworking man and good provider to his family.
He was a family man and well respected in the community. He was a police officer back in 1970’s and later became a business owner. Most people knew him as “Pancho”; he was the kind of friend that gave his shirt off his back to anybody.

He enjoyed listening to old Spanish music, farming, watching antique car shows, sports and western movies. He shared precious moments playing dominoes and gardening with family and friends.
