Estanislado was a kind and loving person. He would always take the time to check in on others, and see if they needed any help. He was well known and loved, and always made others smile and laugh as he was the clown of the family. Estanislado was a hard worker.  He worked many years for Carlsbad Municipal Schools as a custodian.  Estanislado was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan, and he loved to dance and listen to the oldies. Estanislado was always a caring and loving father, grandfather, and husband. He married the love of his life, Ycela Rubio on August 19, 1969, and he greatly missed her this past year that they were not together. He has now gone to be reunited with loving wife, and his favorite dog Blanco.
