Edmundo was born on November 20, 1929 in Aguascalientes, Mexico to Jose Romo and Guadalupe Saucedo Romo. He married Elena Rivera Romo on March 3, 1955 in Chihuahua, Mexico, and they migrated to America over 60 years ago. He loved Mexico and loved America, and he was so proud of Mexico and grateful for the American Dream. He was a newspaper reporter & actor. He was a double for major actors like Pedro Infante in Mexico. Once he moved to the United States, he was a news reporter in New Mexico. He loved being a rancher, loved his animals, and the majority of his life had a pet dog. He worked at the Sonny Tom Ranch, when he first arrived in Andrews. His last profession prior to retiring was back to ranching in South Dakota. In between being a rancher, he was a true hardworking entrepreneur. He was a hardworking man that did whatever it took to provide for his family; from being a business owner, construction, Mexican imports, and carpentry. He loved his family very much, and his children and grandchildren were his pride. He was a Catholic that rarely failed to pray his Rosary before bedtime. He loved the Lord and rededicated his life to Jesus later in life about 7 years ago.
