He was a beloved and devoted husband and dad and sacrificed so much to bring his family to the United States. He did what was needed to be financially stable and to bring his wife and kids to the United States. It was truly an act of God that made that possible. He was bold and confident in what he had to do to give his family a better life. He came to the States only knowing Spanish and strived and succeeded to learn the English language.

Cesar always had a great sense of humor and an incredibly positive attitude about life. He would always encourage us to look at the bright side. He never forgot his roots and would always emphasize the family roots to us all. He loved New York City and would always find a way to visit.

He loved to be well dressed and was known to shop at high end stores. Being an avid walker, he loved taking his kids on long walks. He loved music and would buy records regularly.
