He married Alicia Cortes Huerto on April 30, 1969 in Lima, Peru. He was a successful businessman and entrepreneur. His search for success took him to Venezuela where he and his family lived for fourteen years. In 1988, he sought better opportunities in the United States, and moved to California where he founded "Latino Service" and helped hundreds, if not thousands of immigrants like himself to achieve the American Dream. Fernando was a hardworking man. He worked since he was 16 years old and up until he was forced to retire due to his illness.
Fernando Luis Vigil had a positive view of life. He always focused on solutions and not on problems and always saw the good in everything and everyone . He loved dancing and Peruvian food. He made many friends and was loved by all. His dying wish was for his family to always be together and to remember that love is the most important part of life.
