He immigrated from Cuba in 1962 and continued his work as an engineer in both New Jersey and Central Virginia before moving to Farmville where he was the Director of Audio Visual and Technical Support Services at Longwood College retiring after 25 years of service. He was a kind, loving and supporting husband, brother, father, grandfather and friend and a man of few words whose thoughts were respected by all. He was a true gentleman.
