Paquito, we miss you.

Message by Francisco L Jimenez Velasco | Jun 11th 2009

Paquito, age 13, and Pepe, age 10, came to Miami on the Pedro Pan flights. Two days later, they were joined by Henry and Nena, ages 9 and 8. When the parents came from Cuba about six months later, they relocated to Chicago where everybody grew up and went to college. Paquito graduated from the University of Illinois as a chemical engineer, and, after working as such for a few years, he studied medicine in the Dominican Republic, where he graduated in 1983. Unfortunately, due to his health, he was not able to practice medicine. He had three children whom he loved very much and was very proud of. They are Frankie who lives in California, and Jonathan and Sarah who reside in Las Vegas. On July 16, 2007, Paquito died unexpectedly as a result of heart disease. His funeral mass in Coral Gables was attended by many friends and family members. He is missed by all.
