Juventino “Tino” Alfredo Portillo was born on Jan. 25, 1954, in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico, to Diego and Maria Benita (Saenz) Portillo. Tino had a great sense of humor and was a great father. Known as a great friend to all who knew him, Tino was always willing to lend a helping hand.
He loved his pet poodle, WaWa’s, dearly. Greatly changing his life and knowing Christ was one of Tino’s proudest accomplishments. Salmos 91 was Tino’s favorite Psalm. He became a mentor and brought many lives to Christ. Tino was a father figure to many and a proud professional musician.
He and his wife Silvia are founding members of Tabernaculo De Gracia Church along with the Rev. Gustavo Castillo.
Being reunited in heaven again with Tino are his parents Diego and Maria Portillo; and brothers, Jose Portillo and Ramon Portillo.
Those left to cherish Tino’s memory are his wife Silvia Portillo, of the family home; children, Anthony and his wife Kessia, Rebecca, Diego, Carlitos, Juventino Jr. and his companion Marbella, Jose, Ramon, Maria, Yvonne and her companion Ricardo, and Denise and her companion, Emmanuel; brother Jesus Portillo; sisters, Maria Portillo de Trevizo and Nicolasa Portillo de Dominguez; 17 grandchildren; a great-grandson; numerous nieces and nephews; and dear friend Fabian Romero; who was always more than a friend, always by his side.

Jesus Casas Jr., Angel Casas and Larry Mendoza will serve as honorary pallbearers.
The Portillo family would like to especially thank the Rev. Gustavo Castillo for going out of his way to be by our family’s side in this time of need without hesitation.
