Known as Shorty to many, Mr. Flores was a loyal fan of the Uvalde Coyotes, both baseball and football. He loved to dance and listen to music. He was happiest when his children were around him and his wife; especially at cook-outs. Often times you would see him driving his green journey or his little red ford pickup taking a cruise in town with his wife. Never the shy man, he had many friends everywhere he went.
