Agapito will forever be loved and cherished by his family and loved ones. He met the love of his life Lillie in 1990 and they spent 30 wonderful years together. Agapito never met a stranger and was always willing to lend a helping hand and would make conversation with everyone. A few things that Agapito loved was fishing, hunting, watching all the cooking shows, and more the anything spending time with his grandchildren. If you didn't know where he was you knew he would be fishing with his grandchildren or hanging out with his best friend Pancho. Agapito watched all the cooking channels and even wrote down all the recipes but never did cook them, in fact Pancho would be the one who cooked for them, but that's what best friends are for. Agapito will be truly missed by all of his family and his memory will be cherished forever.
