My Dad
My Father was born on July 9th of 1951 to Edgard and Lucia in San Lorenzo Puerto Rico.
He came to Chicago as a young man where he met his best friend, My Mom, and from High
School forward, they were inseparable.
Shortly after marrying, My dad began a long and proud career of police work starting with the
Illinois State department and then the Chicago Police department where he met and helped
countless people making friends everywhere he went.
He then had 2 children who adored him and later a Granddaughter who was the center of his
Universe.
After retiring, Dad achieved a life goal of purchasing and enjoying a home in Florida where he
would welcome family and friends and tended to his many flowers. It was a passion.
He was many things to many people but to us, he was just Dad. The consumate rock. The pillar
of Strength and the North Star of our family always pointing us in the right direction. And while
he no longer is physically present, we feel his presence and love forever more.
