Raul Avila Cisneros, Sr., 89, August 10, 2020 longtime resident of the
South Side of Chicago, Brighton Park neighborhood, after moving to Chicago
in his mid 20's from Mexico; beloved husband of Genoveva Cisneros; adored
father of Raul (Belinda) Cisneros, Maria Xochitl (Lang) Peterson, Raymundo
(Martha) Cisneros and Genoveva (Gilberto) Ruiz; proud grandfather of Frank,

grandfather of Ruth Cisneros; dearly loved by his mother, the late Maria
Cisneros; devoted brother of Manuel Razo and Graciela Razo; as well as a
devoted uncle and friend to many.

Raul was a CTA Bus Driver for 27 years. He was a huge Chicago sports fan,
especially of the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bears. Raul loved to cook
for his family, especially pizza from scratch and his famous tacos and
tortas. He loved music, especially Elvis Presly and County Songs. He
enjoyed watching each and every James Bond Movie. He had the reputation of
being hard to buy presents for, as he was a beloved father figure, who had
everything, as long as his family was close. Raul was known for and loved,
taking his tequila shot before every meal. His tradition!
