Jorge,
You will always be remembered as a wonderful son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and of course friend. When we first met 45 yrs ago, you immediately made sure I had a friend. You taught me the rules of football while watching your beloved Steelers games. Some of my fondest memories in high school was going and watching your football games with Mima. I was a Rancho Ram Football fan although I went to a different High School. You were a Star then and through your entire life. We had this little joke whenever we had accomplished something we would said to each other “hey not bad for a little Cuban refugee”. You will be missed but not forgotten my friend. Rest In Peace until we meet again.

My deepest condolences to Debbie, the girls and Julian.

Coach Fernandez,

Words can’t explain how grateful and blessed I am that you where apart of my life. From a 12 year old boy to a 42 year old man we have had so many memories from youth football to pro football to our annual Raven/Steeler game. Starting out as my coach to my mentor to the Dad I dreamed of to my best friend. There has not been an important moment in my life that you have not shared with me or helped me walk through. We laughed together and we cried together, but without a shadow of a doubt it was never a question if the other would be there at any given moment at any given time. I will truly miss you. I promise to always keep our traditions alive and continue to strive to make you proud. I am so glad I was able to talk to you the day before and see you 4 days before. Give you hugs, kiss your check and tell you from man to man, Father to Son, that I love u. Thank you for helping me to become the man I am today. U will always and forever live in my memories and my heart.

Until I see you again
Your Son
Ed (Eddie) Hartwell

It was always a fun pleasure when ever Jorge stopped by the branch. He had such a fun and kind spirit. I feel so fortunate I was able to visit with him again before he died.

He was a good man and will be missed....

Goodbye my friend
