Guadalupe Rios Sr. was born June 3, 1957 in Scott Bluff, Nebraska to Jose Rios and Carmen Ramos. He was a devoted husband and father who loved to be surrounded by his family. He had a big heart and was always ready to help anyone in need. Those who knew him knew he lived a care free life that of a hippie you could say, day by day. He gave his all in the many roles he played in everyone’s lives, “ your going to do it right the first time or not do it at all” was his attitude. He accepted everyone for who they were as he himself was from perfect, but to us he was perfect. In his younger days he enjoyed a good game of pool and join several pool leagues. These days you could find him on a golf course ready for a round of golf, he was competitive in whatever he did. He enjoyed playing board games which no one could beat him at especially Risk or Monopoly, which few enjoyed playing with him as there was no end until he won. He was a big kid at heart always laughing, joking, he was life of the party. He had a presence about him. His greatest love was for his wife, he had to have her by his side everywhere he went. He never stopped opening the door for her. He bought the just because gifts many people seen the love he had for her and admired him for it. It was as if they were just dating, he never stopped with the little things.
