Poncho was an employee at Advanced Disposal Services for over 20 years. When he wasn’t working, Poncho loved spending time in the great outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He finally got his trophy buck three years ago. He loved tending to his garden and enjoyed sharing his produce with friends and family. Another of Poncho’s favorite pastimes was cooking for family and friends, as well. Many will remember the pleasure he took in preparing his meals, stating it was better than any restaurant.
