He transferred to Clark High School and graduated with his High School Diploma, regardless of his share of challenges, from Clark High School at Northside Independent School District. He studied ROTC (Reserve Officer’s Training Camp) and Music but, mostly video games with raging guns. Adolfo “Michael” Cantu was water baptized and first attended Resurrected Life Church of McAllen, TX, where the word of God was hammered into his heart by Pastor Pedro Suarez. In Laredo Texas, he attended Christ Worship Center with Pastor Sam Lopez. In San Antonio, he faithfully attended Cornerstone Church with Pastor John Hagee. He attended church camp twice a year for at least 18 years. He also earned Frequent Flier points at Total Commitment in Ministries Church, Mission, TX with Uncle/Pastor Pedro Armando Gutierrez. “Michael” preferred worship music and was known for dancing “like David danced”. He learned all his first dance moves at his Pentecostal church. “Michael” was a very dedicated employee of Santikos Entertainment Palladium Theatre, for five years. He made long lasting friendships as and Entertainment Guest Specialist. He loved theatre and knew each movie entertainer and which movie they were cast in. “Michael” is known as a very honest, loving and good Christian person. His greatest desire was that his family would love one another regardless of any misunderstandings. He could never be convinced of trying “a little” or “just one” of anything worldly. If it did not bring edification, he would simply say “no thanks”. “Michael” was a fighter. During his stay at Christus Santa Rosa Westover Hills, he was very determined to fight the good fight. He was relentless, every step of the way. It was so hard, and he kept fighting. He would do anything for his mother. He did win the fight, because to live is Christ and to die is gain, Phil 1:21. He has earned his crown of righteousness! Devil, you can never steal our joy, devil, you can never penetrate the armor of God. “Michael” will forever be loved and forever be missed.— L.
