The night of his death his grandfather said Christian wanted nothing more than to be a PCSO Deputy and told his family his happiest times were spent with his fellow explorers and the deputies.
I had the pleasure of working with Explorer Pintor Thursday during our shift at Country Thunder and he told me he had never had so much fun in his life than when he competed with his team at the recent Scottsdale Competition (team placed 1st place overall team).
Christian was a fun-loving kid who wasn't afraid of anything. His parents said when he was little he wore an old cowboy hat and rode sheep and to his mother's horror tried to ride calves too.
Christian befriended everybody, no one was a stranger, even at a young age he was interested in people and would talk and make friends with everybody he met. He had so much energy, was always on the go, busy working or having fun.
Christian loved animals, he was always finding homeless animals and taking in strays, making sure they got to shelter or someone's home. He was a down to earth country boy who loved horses most of all. He trained horses, rode and roped and helped his grandparents with farm work.
Christian loved to sing and dance and he loved Country Music. His favorite artist was George Strait. He was a bit of a dreamer too, he loved watching clouds in the sky and spent a lot of time looking at sunsets, he was always touched by the beautiful Arizona sunsets.”
On April 9th, 2011 Sheriff Paul Babeu posthumously promoted Explorer Christian Pintor to honorary PCSO Deputy Christian Pintor to fulfill his dream of becoming a Deputy Sheriff.
Funeral Services for PCSO Explorer, Christian Pintor will be held Wednesday, April 13th, 2011 at 10 a.m.
