« on: April 03, 2021, 03:29:11 PM »
The family of George Santoyo Jr., 73, has invited the Patriot Guard to be present for his services and Military Honors. It will be our honor to do so.

George was born 16 Aug 1947 and passed away 2 Feb 2021.

George was a United States Marine serving our country from 1 Nov 1967 to 12 Jun 1969 as a 0311 Rifleman. He was awarded two Purple Hearts while serving in Vietnam. He was also awarded the National Defense, Vietnam Campaign and Vietnam Service Medals. George also received the Markmanship Badge.

After completing his tour of duty and receiving an Honorable Discharge, George drove trucks. He loved watching movies with family and friends and became a very devoted Christian. He also loved riding his Harley.

George is survived by his three brothers, Richard, Steve, and John. Two sisters, Terry and Vickie. He is also survived by three two sons, Joe and Louie, a daughter Anna, ten grandchildren and one great grandchild.

George was loved by many and will be missed by his immediate family and a large Christian family as well. We honor George for his service to our country and ask that you honor him by keeping his memory alive.
