Armando Perez, 68, was born on Friday October 9th of 1953, in Mission, Texas. He started his life in Texas where he went on to Illinois and then in 1995, he planted his feet in Indiana. He was a proud Dad of 8 children which they then blessed him with 30 grandchildren. And his grandchildren blessed him with 10 great grandchildren. He was an awesome Dad and Papa. His nieces and nephews are a whole other story and he will tell you in a heartbeat he loved them all. If there was anything they needed all they had to do was ask "Uncle Mondo" and he would do whatever he could for them.
He had two sisters and four brothers. When they all got together the stories and laughter never ended. To him that was his best time being with his siblings. He would talk about them working on the fields together or standing at the bus stops, and about their wrestling days.
He would say back in the wrestling days, or in his Kingsmen days he was known as "Superman". But the coach would call him "Horse" because during practice he was always working hard. Many may not know but he invented a wrestling move called the "2 on 1" that is still taught to this very day. He even made Athlete of the week, more than once.
He bore many names in his life like Big Mundo, Uncle Mondo, Papa, Pops, Brother, Cuz, Son, or Dad. But the name he wore with a smile is Husband. When he decided to marry his Mary, it was like he was a youngster all over again. They would just take off and go on a road trip to wherever the wind took them, meaning they would get lost along the way too. He was always down for whatever as long as he had Mary by his side. And a blessing she was because she did just that. She was there right by his side through everything. He would always tell the story about when they were getting married and his sister Virginia was doing their vows and she said "okay Mary now is your time to run or forever hold your peace" and she said "No, I'm staying". Thank goodness she did, she stood by him loving him and taking care of him.
But now he can rest easy and be in peace and watch over all his loved ones. Thank you for being in our lives.
