Our former blogger Claudio Gallegos posted this on Facebook on Sunday:
Orange County lost a legend and heaven gained an angel last night. Amin David was a pioneer for Latino civil rights in Orange County. He will be missed and I will never forget his guidance and knowledge. Rest in peace amigo.
David’s family posted this on his Facebook page:
Our beloved Dad is now in heaven, resting in peace. After a couple hours of restlessness, he unexpectedly crossed over last night at about 10:45 pm. We were all together last night. No services are planned at this time. We are honoring Dad’s memory and chilling out together. Thank you for respecting our family time. We appreciate all the messages of love. Amen. Aum Shanti Shanti Shanti
The longtime Los Amigos leader lost his battle with cancer on Saturday and passed away at the age of 83.
