May the peace and comfort of our Lord be with you all, as you go through this very difficult time of sorrow. Consoling hugs to all of his family and friends.

  • My family and I would like to give our deepest condolences to the Contreras, Martinez and Corona families. Tury and I were best friends in high school. We played football together from 7th grade on through Senior year. He and I competed daily in trying to achieve the best grades in school also. And as usual he would win most of the time. All of his friends and family know him to be so competitive both in sports and school. He would focus so hard on things I could be sitting right next to him and have to yell his name just to get him to awake from his concentration. I had not spoken to Tury in such a long time but hearing the news of his passing has brought back so many great memories. I know he will be missed by everyone that he touched. Our prayers are with his whole family and friends.

How spoil he was by us and especially my dad who would disappear with him for hours! He sure like to have him at his side! He lived with when he was born so to me he was like my brother, can’t believe he’s gone so soon , cause I think he was still young and had many more years, but God only knows when he want us to join him, but I’m sure he’s happy to see my sister Mary my mom , dad and all the family that are no longer here with us, I will surly miss him even though I hadn’t seen him since my sister pass away, and he stay at my house when my mom pass away, too!
