Manuel Segovia was the nephew to my dad Dionicio Segovia Lopez . My dad still alive and two sisters ( deceased now) was from McAllen Texas. Even though my dad has dementia he remembers his nephew. My dad told me Manuel was dedicated to his job and wanted to remain working out in the field rather than moving to a desk job. I'm proud of my cousin Manuel.
