I am so sorry to hear of Tino’s passing. Working for him for the 4 short years when he was Bellaire Mayor was such a pleasure. He was very good to me and my family. I will remember him always as the kind, gentle man with a big heart.

Grew up with Tino, It was the Belmont-Union street gang. Tino was a friend of mine.
Had to help him with Keno at the Blue Angel these past years.
