Chico was very charismatic and friendly, he loved to be surrounded by people and approached life with a childlike attitude. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed playing jokes on people. He wanted to instill courage in his children so he would allow them to watch scary movies at night and then challenge each to go alone to a different room to test they’ve bravery, his kids did not disappoint him no matter how scared they were.
