He cherished his dog Cooper and adored his beloved grandchildren who called him “Papa”.

He is preceded in death by his parents Francisco and Guadalupe Cuellar and his brother Norberto, and is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Griselda “Chris” Cuellar; daughters Yvette & Lizette Cuellar, Julie Kielmeyer (Chad), and Jennifer Moser (Randy); grandchildren Amanda Mendez, Quentin Farhat and Claire & Hudson Kielmeyer; great granddaughter Amaya Mendez; sisters Oralia Sanchez, Maria Salazar (Gilberto), Guadalupe Lopez (Jesse) and Maria Fuentes (Manuel) as well as many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.
