Richard was a loving Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, and Friend. Most would refer to him as Bino. He was very protective of his loved ones and would never end a phone call without saying I love you. Bino loved to joke around and had a smile that would light up the room. He enjoyed his oldies and funk music. Bino's favorite old school song was Jam On It. He loved to dance. He would spend hours ironing his clothes and always wore knee high white socks. Bino always held a sprite in his hand and loved to eat tacos made of carne molida and papas. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy will live on.
He is survived by children; Monique Alva, Vicky Allen, Benny Amado, Richard Amado, Richard Amado, Elias Amado, Pauline Salmon and Daisy Amado. Grandchildren; Sonora Amado, Anthony Alva, Cecilio Alva, and Isabel Alva.
