Rigoberto was a wonderful son and caring brother, uncle and friend. He found great joy in the simplest things but his greatest joy was his family. Rigoberto was a special young man with a gift of helping others. He had a heart of gold and always put others before himself. Rigoberto enjoyed helping people. He was a God-given blessing during and after the flood that this area experienced afew years ago. Not only did he work hard to help others during the flood, but his work continued on until his terrible accident on Sunday. Rigoberto loved people and was loved in return. He acquired numerous friends and extended families in Wallace, Teachey, Rose Hill and others parts of North Carolina. He was never self centered; everything was always about 'what he could do for others'. Rigoberto will surely missed but his love will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. Those who knew Rigoberto knew they were truly blessed.
