Cons, a naturalized American citizen, was born in Cananea, Mexico on December 31, 1919, and passed away peacefully at his home on March 19, 2011.  Loreto served with the United States Army Company C 327th Medical Battalion during WWII and assisted his comrades throughout France and Germany.  While in the service his wife Socorro worked for Goodyear Tire and Rubber with a group of women known as “Rosie the Riveter”. 

 In 1955 he established Cons Barber Shop in Avondale, Arizona and was a barber for 25 years.  He later joined his wife owning and operating Cons Cafe in Avondale until their retirement in 1990.  To this day people still request their great Mexican cuisine.
