Raul Negron was born on January 15th, 1949 on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, in the town of Caguas. He was the son of the late Jesus Negron and the late Eulalia Fontanez. He was also predeceased by 5 of his siblings. Even though his parents had passed away, he often spoke of them, especially his father who was a barber. He loved the fact that his daughter was now following in her grandfather’s footsteps.
Raul was someone who was so full of life, and had a great sense of humor with a joke always ready to tell. He was a kind man and gentle with kids, many would call him Papa and saw him as their grandpa too. At any given time, if he was needed, he would drop everything to help. No matter what, he did the best he could. Raul was a great listener, even when he did not understand what was being said or how to respond. He would often give the best advice and would offer his shoulder to cry on when it was needed.
Raul loved being a pizza driver at Giovanni’s, he said he was “his own boss” and met a lot of people because of it. His favorite football team was the Miami Dolphins and even though they were always losing, he would never stop cheering for his team. He also enjoyed watching boxing and his favorite baseball team was the Philadelphia Phillies.
Raul spoke with an accent, anything he would say it would come out was with a Puerto Rican flavor. He loved everyone around him and they loved him. He enjoyed watching cowboy movies and would stay up all night just to watch the same scene over, and over again. He would often fall asleep and had to rewind the movie to watch the scene again.
Raul was an amazing father, grandfather, and friend. He loved everyone and treated them as if they were family. He also had a distinctive stride, he was calm, cool, and collective. Many said he had a smooth pimp walk with style. He will be sadly missed but never forgotten and always in the hearts of his family and friends.
Raul leaves to celebrate his life and memory his wife, Rosdely Negron, his daughter Ayla Negron, daughter-in-law, Arianna Negron, siblings; Roberto and Ada Negron, 3 grandchildren; Ayla, Jadiel and Juliano Negron and a host of other relatives and friends.
