Raul had a heart of gold; he would selflessly help anybody who needed it no matter the circumstances. Raul was very forgiving and made sure his children knew how important it was to forgive. Raul loved: The Kansas City Chiefs, Chivas fútbol team, watching TV game shows, Western movies, having a cold one with friends, and playing the lottery. Raul would always bet his money using his loved one’s birthdays; he always believed those numbers gave him superior luck. Raul was festive, especially during the Winter holidays.
