My father Felix Cardona Quiñones died on Thursday, June 21, 2018. He proudly received the gold medal the day of his 90th Birthday April 13, 2016. I am proud of his legacy of service and cordial attitude to his fellow citizens being very proud for being one of many puerto ricans who return to Puerto Rico and help improve our society by developing sports.
Editor's Note: Our deepest condolences to you and your family on your loss. We are always sad to hear about the passing of our beloved Borinqueneers.
My father, Hector L. Capella passed away on Valentines Day 02/14/18. He will be missed but know that he is at peace now. He risked his life for this country and was a proud Veteran and Borinqueneer. We made a tribute video of him and also of the Borinqueneers. It is good to know that this site will continue to honor the Borinqueneers and that my father's photo is here. Thank you.
Saludos, Mi tio Raúl Rivera Rodríguez original del Bo Colombia en Mayaguez, perteneció a los Borinqueneers. Fue declarado MIA en la Guerra de Corea. Los familiares que le sobrevivimos apenas le conocimos, tan solo tenemos la foto oficial enmarcada que otorgó el ejército a mis abuelos. Si alguien tiene memorias, fotos, historias, etc. agradeceríamos lo comparta con nosotros.
Agradecida! puede dirigirse a firstname.lastname@example.org Sol N. Vélez-Rivera

MAJ Ceferino Declet, Sr. was my grandfather. He passed away last week and will be laid to rest, this Friday. He was assigned to Echo Company and served in Korea in 1951; received Bronze Star with Valor. I couldn't imagine a better honor then if fellow BORINQUENEERS could attend his services.
