    Hi. Mike Corralejo is my Dad. He left me with many stories of his childhood. Yes, I’m interested to speak with you. Thank you.

  2. Sandra Chavez says:

    Mike Corralejo is my fathers’ uncle. My father is Alberto Corralejo Tafoya. What a pleasure it is to read a little history I knew nothing about. Thank you so much.

    • Anthony Corralejo says:

      Mike Corralejo is my father. I worked for him for over 10 years. He was born in Pico Ca. (Now Pico Rivera), 1913. Baptized at La Placita Church, Olveria St. I remember all his stories of growing up in Moorepark and family travels to downtown Los Angeles. They would visit his half sister in Compton Ca. On the way home, in downtown L.A. grandpa would buy dry goods that the family needed back home. I was schooled at San Fernando Jr. High. I had a cousin my age named Albert Tafoya who was a classmate. He and his family move to Denver Co.(Cole and “Red” Tafoya) back in the late 60’s. Related?
