Frederico “Lico” Lujan
On this day, February 7, 2014, Frederico Lujan has gone to be with our Lord Jesus Christ. We now can rest knowing that he suffers no more on this earth. The Lord has his name written in the book of life. Lico was a kind man with a heart full of love for his family and friends. He was always there to lend a hand. Tio Lico lived to help others. A son, a brother, a father, a grandfather, an uncle, a soldier, a builder, a counselor, and a friend to all he knew he left his smile. We will all miss you. Till we meet again, forever in our hearts. Love, Tere.
