Nestor Maisonet A quiet hero passed away on January 18, the day after his 46th birthday. Nestor Maisonet leaves behind his beloved and devoted wife Carrie Maisonet (nee Paponetti) and his most loving and devoted daughter Alyssa. He is a brother to Nancy, Fernando, and Anita Bandy (Sam). His parents, Ana Serrano and Fernando preceded him in death. Nestor is a cherished uncle to a host of nephews and nieces, he is a son-in-law, brother-in-law, nephew, cousin, to family and friend to many that will deeply miss his wit and sense of humor. A soft spoken man, Nestor proved his patriotism by joining the Ohio Army National Guard in 1995 where he became a military police officer. After his honorable discharge in July of 2001, he joined the Ohio Air National Guard in October 2001 in response to the attacks on 9/11. He served our Country with distinction in Operation Enduring Freedom. He left the Air Guard to help take care of his ailing mother. Continuing his life of commitment to public service, Nestor became a Regional Transit Authority police officer and served on the FBI Drug Task Force. Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin said “Heroes represent the best of ourselves, respecting that we are human beings. A hero can be anyone from Gandhi to your classroom teacher, anyone who can show courage when faced with a problem. A hero is someone who is willing to help others in his or her best capacity.” This was Nestor Maisonet.

Although I’ve only met Nester a few times because I live out of state I know he made my niece very very happy. The few times that I did at family gatherings he was a very soft-spoken man.

I feel blessed to have known Nestor. He was a friend who became as close as family. He was kind, funny, and loyal. He would do anything for those he loved. What stands out most to me about him was how he adored Carrie and Alyssa and how much they loved him back. He was a wonderful person who will be dearly missed by our family.

I am so sad to hear of Mr. Maisonet’s passing. Even through all he had to endure he always had a kind smile and a gracious way about him every time I interacted with him at Taussig. My deepest condolences to his friends and wonderful family. The world has lost a great man. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to know him.

Dear Carrie and Alyssa, please accept our deepest condolences on your loss. We met when our family blended with yours a few years ago ...all of you were so welcoming to my sister as well as to us. I had the privilege of helping take care of Nestor several weeks ago and I just want to tell you what a wonderful and caring man Nestor was. He was a gentle and kind man who obviously loved his family very much. May he Rest In Peace.

I met Nestor in 4th grade he was my 1st friend when we arrived in Cleveland. I could call him my brother and everyone who knew us thought we were. We had no secrets from each other. Later life took us in separate directions but I always talked about him and considered him a brother. My kids called him uncle Nestor. Brother you have been and will be missed. May you rest in heaven. You where the best friend and a great man. It is an honor to call you friend brother. NIM WE LOVE YOU.
