In his youth he faced difficult times of the time but Minin, as we all always called him, wanted to improve himself in life and achieve his goals, which is why he joined the army of the United States of America. From there he was able to financially help his parents to raise their extended family. Personally, he was lively and outgoing, he enjoyed sports, board games, such as dominoes, and random games. He was the father of a single son Minnil Alvarado Guzman, who gave him three grandchildren who were the light of his eyes. Grandfather Minin was crazy with them and they with him. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
