Pilar, also known as Jr Pilo or (June-bug) was the life of the party. He always made sure he had a good time, making people laugh by telling jokes.  Jr was happiest when he was surrounded by family and friends.  He enjoyed getting lost in music and watching his favorite team the Dallas Cowboys win. Jr Pilo loved watching his boys play sports, cheering them on, letting them know to be good. He would talk about them all the time; they were definitely his pride and joy. Jr was kind and had a huge heart and big smile. He was loyal to those he loved and respected, always ready to help anyone however he could. No one was a stranger to Jr, he would make friends and start up a conversation with anyone! Jr Pilo will be dearly missed by those who knew him and love him.
