Bienvenido was a steelworker at LTV Steel and retired after 35 years of service.  After his retirement he worked as a crossing-guard for 9 years with the School City of East Chicago at Harrison Elementary School.  Bienvenido loved and lived for his daughters, he always said “they were his treasure.”  He made friends everywhere and was loved by many, and his love was genuine.  He loved his animals and towards the end, Daisy became his companion.  Although his heart was weak, he made room for everybody; a strong love that was out of this world.  Throughout his life he helped many people; was a great mentor; and showed kindness of a father.  He enjoyed watching wrestling with his grandsons; one of many precious memories.  Some of his hobbies were watching TV; the Price is Right; The Wheel of Fortune; hanging outside feeding the stray cats and bird.  He would always sit by the front window, looking around and waiting for Evelyn to pick him up to take him to Walmart.  And let’s not forget – Go Cubs!!!  His daughters always had a special spot in his heart.  At the hospital he told us that his love for us is the same as when he first held us in his arms, and his love will live in our hearts and it will never die.  THE WORLD LOST AN AMAZING MAN!
