Raúl Colin Arcos was born on September 4, 1933, in El Estillero, Michoacán. He was one of eight children born to Hilario Colin and Marcelina Arcos.
He was a Shepard his whole life. Always caring for his farm and animals.
He was humble, educated, hardworking, generous, and a strong man. Always thinking about everyone else’s needs before his. He was always kind and happy. The perfect father and grandfather. Selfless and caring. The greatest example we could ever have. He put God first every day and never worried about what that day would bring.
He was a loving and charismatic father, brother, grandfather, and great-grandfather. With the greatest heart anyone could ever have.
All he left us with are good memories. He loved children and was always happy in their company. He leaves behind a family who loves him dearly.

Raul Perez Colin
Raul Perez Colin alias “El Bule” was born in the state of Querétaro on November 24, 1986.
At the young age of 12, he emigrated to the United States to study, and then work for a better life; not only for himself but for his family as well.
He excelled in sports; football, soccer, track, and lately he really enjoyed playing golf with his uncles and son.
All of us who had the privilege of knowing him knew that he was a very happy, optimistic, kind, noble, and humble person with a huge heart.
Characterized by his authenticity, he was always able to face the adversities of life with a smile on his face. Spending time with him allowed us to enjoy living in the moment. He was always able to spread his joy. Raul had such a unique laugh, that it was impossible not to laugh with him. Each occurrence or mischief was always with the intent of making you laugh. Many will agree that he was the soul of the party; always living in the present, without worrying about tomorrow. He was very loving towards everyone, especially his family. Raul’s adoration were his grandparents; with whom he is now rejoicing in heaven, alongside his aunt, cousin, and all his family that went ahead of him.
You will forever live in our hearts.
