I'm sad to inform those of you that don't know that Santiago Holguin, Eddie Holguin's grandfather, has passed away.
Mr. Holguin was a very nice man and he voted regularly despite his age and health. The last time I saw him vote was at Pavo Real when his son Eddie Holguin Sr took him to vote.
He was an Army veteran and served in World War II. Mr. Holguin was born in Ysleta when it was still a separate town from El Paso.
Click here for details on his funeral arrangements that will include full military honors at Fort Bliss National Cemetery.
Mr. Holguin was always very nice to people and his passing is a loss for the community.
If you need an address to send flowers or a card or anything, contact me and I'll pass it on to you.
