Manuel was a devoted husband and truly the greatest father and grandfather anyone could ever ask for. An easy-going man with high morals and a big heart. He got along with everyone and was a dear friend to many. He never spoke a foul word about anyone and was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand.

Mr. Raygoza was an extremely hard-working man; always keeping himself busy. His love for agriculture and the great outdoors gave him pride in keeping his yard looking beautiful. He also loved to cook and tend to his garden; taking special care and growing only the best tomatoes and vegetables for his cooking.

Manuel will be dearly missed by all his family and friends. He was preceded in death by his brother, Antonio Raygoza and Albino Raygoza.
