We’re all heartbroken by the loss of our EPISD family members over the weekend.
Both of these individuals were dedicated to their son and grandson’s teams. Neither one ever missed a game.
The Canos participated in all Bowie football activities with Mrs. Cano becoming a grandmother figure for the team. Last week, she even made menudo for all the players and coaches. The Bowie Bear’s football team was definitely in her heart. She proudly watched from the stands her grandson Danny Cano, last week’s El Paso Times player of the week, and son Ruben Cano, a volunteer coach for the team, on the field.
The same could be said about Perales’ dedication to the Chapin team and his sons Elijah and Noah. Mr. Perales was an educator, motivator and loved the Chapin football team and his students at Pasodale Elementary. Many of the Chapin football players looked up to Mr. Perales as a father figure, who was always in the stands cheering them on.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to both families. We are here to support the families and school communities during this difficult time.
