Amado “Rojo” enjoyed spending time with the grandkids, fishing, walks, camping and ice dates. Amado and his wife enjoyed going to watch their children play softball, showing them how to take care of their vehicles because he would tell them “I’m not always going to be here.” There was nothing more than him loving to help anyone he came across that needed it. He loved giving grief to those Chiefs fans.
