He was born March 1, 1927, in Cuba. The Communist government deported him to the United States in 1980 because he was a Jehovah's Witness. President Carter granted him political asylum, and he and his wife became American citizens.
He retired from Solo Cup in Champaign. He spent a lot of time preaching in Danville. He loved to talk about the Bible with people. He had a strong faith in the resurrection.
His memory will be shared by all those whose lives were touched by him.
