Alfredo, as known as “Bizo", was a graduate of Westside High School class of 1976 and was hired by Inland Steel (Arcelor Mittal) after graduation. He was a member of USW Local #1010. He was a very kind and caring person, who loved joking with people. He also loved spending time with his family and grandchildren. He was an avid Cubs fan and loved wearing hats, so he never left home without one. Cheers to his life with a big cup of ice.
