Our hearts are heavy as we report that Cisco San Miguel entered into rest at the age of 20, just shy of his 21st birthday. We were honored to have met Cisco and his parents Oscar and Sandra along with his sister Alanis in 2011 when we celebrated Cisco at the George Paul Bull Riding in Del Rio. Here is an excerpt from his obituary that speaks to his perseverance and quiet strength.
“His demeanor was quiet, but his silence had a huge impact on our community. Cisco was a true soldier showing us what it is to fight and live by example, never complaining and always smiling with his much-loved dog, Macy. Cisco taught us that we should focus on people’s abilities and not their disabilities. Although confined to his wheelchair, he was able to cover many miles surrounded by his family ad his beloved “Cisco’s Soldier’s family. Cisco brought awareness to the Muscular Dystrophy disease and as a true soldier, fighting until the end. He will be dearly missed, but his smile and kind heart will forever live in us all.”
