Rafael was a born in Michoacán, Mexico but was a long-time resident of the region. He was a faithful member of Our Lady Guadalupe Church in East Chicago. He was retired from Sherwin Williams Paint Company as a filling operator. Rafael never stopped working, he could fix or build just about anything. In his free time, he loved to garden, work around the house and spend time at the ocean. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Rafael loved spending time with his family and especially his grandchildren who he adored tremendously. He loved being surrounded by close family any chance he had and loved playing his type of music.  In lieu of flowers memorials to the family would be appreciated.
