Florentino Sandoval, Jr. worked for his foster parents Robert (Bob) and Violet Mae Huerta at their family business, Taco Town from the age of 12 up to the year 2010. He also worked for a brief time at the Log Cabin Cafe in 2011, before he retired full time. He enjoyed fishing, riding his bike and taking a drive in his car. He was a very happy Go Get Em' type of guy. He always made the best of every situation. He was always smiling and laughing. Towards the end of his time he enjoyed his freedom to be who God made him to be and that was to be loved by the people who love him, his family.
