Eustacio was a lifelong member of the Roman Catholic Church and was active in the church
choir until he was no longer physically able to participate. He worked as a logger in his early
years and then worked as a school bus contractor for 30 years. Tacho’s passion was ranching.
He was happiest on horseback or riding around in his truck checking on his cows, but his true
treasure was his family.
