OBITUARY

Cecilio J. Menjivar

November 28, 1924April 18, 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of Cecilo Jose Menjivar announces his passing on April 18, 2021 at the age of 96. Cecilo is lovingly remembered by his four children, Ana Vilma, Delmy, Noe, and Nelson, four grandchildren Daniel, Moses, Alex, and Ally, and his great-grandson Samuel. He is greatly missed by his siblings Ophelia in Canada and Leonides in Costa Rica and their families.

Cecilo was born in El Salvador in 1924 and was the oldest of nine siblings. He met the love of his life at the age of 31 and began a family in the years that followed. They moved to Texas where he became the patriarch of his family, helping to raise his grandchildren. His favorite hobbies included fishing and daily walks or scooter rides around the neighborhood.

In 2006, Cecilo moved to Florida and enjoyed many warm days in the sun. He enjoyed the outdoors in his later years by sitting under his favorite avocado tree and being the garden supervisor. He was a tremendous fan of action, western, and comedy movies, always willing to rewatch any Rambo or Leslie Neilson film. Despite not being fluent in English, he was a charismatic speaker with grand gestures added for good measure. Cecilo was always well remembered and popular with staff at his doctors office and local pharmacy. He remained active until his health began to fail him in recent months and spent his last couple months at Solaris Senior Living bringing joy and smiles to the staff and other residents.

A viewing will be held on Saturday May 1, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. for family and friends followed by the funeral service at 2p.m. at Brevard Memorial Funeral Home 5475 N. US1 Cocoa FL. 32927.
