Angel Luis Santiago came from humble beginnings and believed that with hard work and effort, one could be a success in life and family. He loved his family, his country, and he especially loved Texas.
Angel served this country as a member of the U.S. Air Force in the Vietnam conflict and carried with him what he learned in the military throughout his lifetime. He always considered himself a kid from Northeast El Paso and spoke fondly of all the years spent here, stories of his escapades and the good times he had amongst all of his family and friends throughout the years.
Among those left behind to celebrate his life are his wife, Dorothy; son, Johnny Angel (Desiree); son, Carlos (Joanna); daughter, Helena; his mother, Carmen, whom he lovingly referred to as “Rosita”; sister, Iris; brothers, Edwin (Sheila), Mariano (Kati), and Raymond (Christine); Grandchildren, Milo Angel; Sebastian, Evan, Arianna, Liam; Elijah, Joaquin, and Santino; and numerous nieces and nephews. He leaves behind many friendships, some he carried since childhood, with Richard I., Kenny S., Gary M., Keith M., Stan (Spanky) R., Rick L., Nanne D.; his friendship with Lou and Dolores as well as the entire membership (past and present) of the El Paso Corvette Club. There are so many more that may have been missed here, but Angel loved them all.
