A Vintage Picture of a Man I Wish I Had Known Better, my Grandfather
This is my grandad, Abraham Quioto Lopez, in 1947 with his sax. He was a true “jack of many trades and master of none, ” as he’d call it.
He came to the states from Honduras in the early 1940s in search of a better life.
He also played the guitar, was an avid photographer and sketch artist.
He must have passed his passion for art to me; artistic genes made their way down the bloodline.
Later in his life, he became a deacon. He was a talented man.
He passed away on May 28, 2014, the same day I completed Marine Corp boot camp.
The only regret I have is not seeing him more or talking to him more. ~shared by @foto_quioto
