Many people knew my father, Sergio Gavaldon, as a successful businessman from Tijuana. Many say Tijuana would have not been the same without him because he had an amazing, giving spirit. I don’t have enough room to write how much he gave to the community as well as to every person that came in contact with him. At the same time, his humbleness was one of his great qualities and never let anyone know about his generosity. He gave in silence. He felt that no one needed to know the many things he did. One of those was him helping install tennis courts at Unidad Deportiva in Tijuana so that every person who did not have the means to play, could have an opportunity to learn about the game.
