Domingo Guardiola, Jr.
Domingo Guardiola, Jr., passed away peacefully, at the age of 71, on Sunday, April 9, 2023, at Rush Copley Hospital in Aurora, IL. Domingo was born in Staples, TX, on November 29, 1951, the son of the late Domingo and Maria (nee Garza) Guardiola. He was a graduate of Joliet Township High School, where he played football and was a wrestler. Domingo knew what a hard day’s work was, having spent his hardworking life as a farmer. He was a big Chicago Bears fan, as well as a Dallas Cowboys fan. When he wasn’t entertaining the younger generations by telling ghost stories, he enjoyed reading a good book. His most precious time spent, was that with his family.
