Mingo is survived by his companion Sue Harris; Sons; Domingo (Yvonne) and Rick (Lucy); proud grandfather to Justin, Keyanna, Alyssa, Lauren, and Domingo; brother to Catalina, Frances, and Margaret; further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

**Grandpa Mingo will forever be remembered as a quiet, kind, strong, hard-working, proud Marine, who always asked what’s going on with our lives, taught us to shoot, the discipline of caring for animals, especially his love of horses. He was always willing to lend a hand to anyone, often putting others before himself.
