His father was Juan Manuel Noriega Reza and his mother Eloisa Medrano.

His story is next on this blog which pays homage to an almost unsung hero.

    This is awsome! From what I read, I am certain Luis Noriega Medrano must be my grandfather’s brother. My grandfather was Manuel Noriega Medrano, son of Manuel Noriega and Eloisa Medrano. Had no clue of my great grandfather’s complete name was Juan Manuel Noriega Reza, or that my great-great grandfather’s name was Anacleto Noriega Olaya.
