Antonio Cazañas Sr., age 84 of Santo Domingo, Las Villas, Cuba. Beloved husband of 58 years of Neri (Besu) Cazañas. Devoted father of Antonio Cazañas Jr. (Michelle) of Miami, FL, Carlos A. Cazañas (Helen) of Bethlehem, PA, and Elizabeth Lotter (Timothy) of Sharpsburg, GA; loving Abuelito of Victoria Maria, Victoria Michelle, Sophia, Gabriella, Elissa, and Christian. Son of the late Eugenio Cazañas and Maria (Fernández) Cazañas, Brother of Isabel (Cazañas) Rumbaud, and the late Olga (Fernández) Bermúdez. Retired as an oil refinery chemist in the U.S. and was a lab technician at a tuberculosis hospital in Cuba. Antonio had a passion for learning, enjoyed the arts and humanities, math, science, and had a zeal for classical music. His biggest devotion, however, was for his family. Antonio and his wife Neri left Cuba in 1970 in pursuit of a better life for their children. He was an active member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Peachtree City, GA. He will be dearly missed, and will be forever in our hearts.

Dear Lotters and Cazañas: From the moment we met you, each of you welcomed us as if we had always fit right into your family and, in fact, that is they way I feel. Memories with you all are filled with incredible laughter and the joy and love that you shared as a family. Abuelito Cazañas was always such a big part of the conversation around the Lotter table, ready with a story or a poem or even a song - What a gentle and loving spirit! I can imagine him now checking facts and reciting verses with old friends. We will always remember him this way and will always love our beautiful Lotter and Cazañas families. Norma, Shawn, Noah, Elijah and Dahlia

Over several years of sharing occasions with my Lotter family and encountering beloved abuelo, I struggled with my limited memory of high school Española, trying to commumicate with him. Nonetheless, he was often the life of the gatherings.

God blesssed you and welcome you into Heaven. Memories of you live on in our heart.

Antonio aka Abuelito was the kindest and funniest person I have ever known. A loving father who left everything behind in Cuba to give his family a better life. He welcomed me into the family as their son-in-law without hesitation. He and his wife, Neri aka Abuelita gave our children a priceless life experience growing up. I will always cherish the Sunday night dinners, the trivia, the laughs. He really was a walking encyclopedia! Such great stories he always had (along with his Cuban cigars)
His love for classical music was definitely unique. I will forever cherish these fond memories.
RIP “wieto.”

I remember when Mrs. Lotter brought her dad to my Spanish class one day so he could talk to the students in Español. He was so so funny and such a nice guy to all the students. He will be greatly missed
