He departed peacefully, surrounded by the love of his family, leaving behind a legacy that will endure through generations. Raul Santiago was born on March 3, 1968 in the Bronx, NY, son to his late parents, Gumersindo and Carmen Santiago.

As well as a large extended family, siblings and countless friends, all of whom will carry his memory forward with love.
