Juan F. "Juanito" Prado was born August 23, 1929 in Cuba, and married Caridad Luis in 1953 while living in Artemisa. Together they had four children Frank, Juan Carlos, Damarik, and Maite. Juanito lived a life centered around family, being the example when he moved his family from Cuba to the United States after having studied in Tampa, FL as a child. When a dark shadow began to set over Cuba, it became an easy choice that Tampa would become home for everyone. Juanito knew he would need to take a chance and sacrifice for his family to establish deep roots. They moved to begin a new life to provide hope and opportunity for a better future for his ever-growing family. His determination, drive, and consistent expectation to keep raising the bar allowed the Prado family to be who we are today. Juanito, along with Caridad, raised four amazing, successful children who have ever exceeded Juanito's dreams. Juanito is survived by: (Brother) Aurelio Prado and his wife Maria, (Son) Juan F. Prado Jr (Frank) - wife Terry, children Matthew, Evan - wife Mounica; (Son) Juan Carlos Prado (JC) - wife Jenifer, children Rachel Millan - husband Pete and great granddaughters Giada and Ava, JC Prado Jr - wife Stephanie; (Daughter) Damarik Herrera - husband Frankie Herrera Jr., children Frankie Herrera III - wife Vanessa and great granddaughter Isabella, Christopher Herrera - wife Kate and great granddaughter Karina; (Daughter) Maite del Cueto - husband Juan del Cueto, children Amanda del Cueto - Fiance Derek, Alex del Cueto - wife Mary.

My condolences to the Prado family. I have many fond memories of spending time with your lovely family. Juanito always made me feel loved, and at home when sharing your home with me. He was a joyous and encouraging man. Juanito and your entire family are in my prayers. I was blessed to have spent part of my teenage years with such a good, hardworking, and loving family. Thank you so much for that privilege.
With my sincere love,
Machy Lazo
