He was a strong supporter of high school sports, and liked attending sporting events.  He played intermural sports at ENMU.  He was an avid Steeler's fan, and could tell you all the statistics and details of all the players and teams in football, and especially the basketball teams.

He is survived by his son, Christian Aguilar of CA; his mother, Lydia Aguilar of Portales and his brother, Bill Augilar of San Jose, CA.  He was preceded in death by his father and a baby sister, Carmela Aguilar.
