Obituary of Emilio Jimenez

Please share a memory of Emilio to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
JIMENEZ July 4, 2023 Today God called Emilio to heaven. He died from complications relating to his heart. After immigrating from Cuba in 1962, he started working for ILA, building a career that spanned over 50 years, rising from a humble longshoreman to union delegate. Despite all the obstacles in his life, he never gave up and kept fighting for a better life for himself and his family, proving the American Dream that so many come here for is achievable and, staying true to himself, went out with a bang on the independence day of the country he loved so much. A beloved family man, he is survived by his wife Dee, children Emilio and Hilda, grandson Matt, daughter-in-law Barbara, son-in-law Mike, grandnephew Marlón, and siblings. A larger-than-life individual, he will be sorely missed. He was 85 years old. Julio 4, 2023 Hoy Dios se llevó Emilio al cielo, que murió de complicaciones relativas a su corazón. Tras inmigrar de Cuba en 1962, empezó a trabajar por ILA, construyendo una carrera que duró más de 50 años, ascendiendo de un humilde estibador a delegado sindical. A pesar de todos los óbstaculos en su vida, nunca se rindió y siguió luchando por una vida mejor por sí mismo y su familia, conviertiéndose en una pruba viviente de que el Sueño Estadounidense se puede lograr y, como el patriota que era, salió de este mundo con estilo el día de independencia del país que tanto amaba. Un querido hombre de familia, deja atrás a su esposa Dee, hijos Emilio e Hilda, nieto Matt, nuera Bárbara, yerno Mike, sobrino-nieto Marlón y hermanos. Un individuo que dejará un hueco en esta vida infinitamente más grande que el espacio que ocupó. Tenía 85 años. In Repose Friday, July 7, 2023 from 3:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. with a Prayer Service at 6:00 P.M. Please keep the Jimenez family in your thoughts and prayers. The Joseph A.
