Enrique was born in Rocksprings, TX. He married Felipa Sanchez in 1959. Together, they raised their 8 children and were a large, happy family. “Henry” as he was known to all, moved around the panhandle of Texas until he settled in Sunny Side, 20 miles South of Dimmitt, TX. He was a hard worker and his children were often by his side learning and helping around the farm. He believed in families staying close and knowing all family members so they often took trips to San Antonio, Uvalde and Rock Springs to visit them.
