He married in the first nuptials with Lyriam Succar, with whom he had 4 children, and in the second nuptials with Rosario Serpa Masías with whom he had a daughter.

After the death of his brother, he assumed the management of his assets until in 1973 his family's lands were exported by the agrarian reform.
