Growing up, Usvaldo learned to be a hard worker, always helping out his grandfather and uncles. This paired with his kind heart, made him always be there for others, helping in any way he could. He was known for his gentle spirit, big welcoming smile, protective nature, being a jokester, and liking to wake up early. Some of his hobbies were going fishing, hunting, camping, hanging out by the river, football, and figuring what was around to snack on. Usvaldo was a loving father, son, brother, and nephew, and he will be dearly missed and never forgotten.

Usvaldo was preceded in death by his grandparents: Usvaldo and Sally Montoya, Sr.; grandmother, Rosa Lerma; and great-grandmother, Felipa Lerma.
