Hector J. Bezares, 89, of Cape Coral, passed away Tuesday, July 3, 2018. He was born December 6, 1928 in Manhattan, NY to Juan and Consuelo Bezares.

Hector worked in television for over 20 years in NYC. He was one of the most sought-after Videotape Engineers in the business. In 1974 he was nominated for an Emmy Award and even though he didn’t win, he won the respect of his peers and his crew was always asked for first on different television shows. He was promoted in 1976 to supervisory Engineer and it was at that time that he found Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior; he went on to retire early from his job and moved to Florida. He worked in a gas station while pursuing his spiritual life and then moved on to Christian television with The Gospel Crusade and helped them get on the air; He traveled to Honduras televising the crusades. He also worked in Public television for a time before retiring for the fourth time. During his last year on earth, he touched many lives with encouraging words, funding ministries, or just simply helping people when the need arose. He loved going to church, praising the Lord and just enjoying the presence of God. He will be missed by many as he switches his earthly address for a heavenly one.

He is survived by daughter, Mary Fink; son, John H. Bezares; son, Raymond Bezares; and daughter,Jo-ann Dellibovi.

He was the last of a large family, and is preceded to Heaven by Viola Bezares, Rose Bezares, and Diane Rice.

    Mitzie and Ray, I was so blessed to have had the short time with Heckie. He shared stories about the family that I did not know, especially about my father. I will miss our conversations, and his wisdom. God took another good man, to stand with his angels. He will be missed. Gloria, Missy and Tonya

    What do I say here, about a man that deserves so MANY words? I first met Hector "Pop" a year ago (or so). It was in church. (That speaks VOLUMES about a man right there!)
    He was the father of a friend of mine in the same church. And you could tell..THOSE TWO GUYS WERE "Father/Son"! But, the similarities went further than looks. I knew of Ray's goodness,and where it came from (God). But, as I got to spend more time with Hector. I could tell he had that same love, joy, and compassion that (Godly traits) that his son had. He took a real "liking" to me. He liked to hear me sing. And there was ONE SPECIAL song that he liked to hear me sing. I was SO BLESSED to be able to sing it to him the night (I think it was) before he passed from this Earthly life.
    He always had that smile on his face when I would step up to say hello to him. And even SOMETIMES a word would not even have to be spoken between us before that "Love of God Smile" would be on his face. Yes...I loved my brother, Hector, "Pop". And I will miss him. But, as a fellow member of "The Family of God". I know that I'll see my friend again. And I'm sure...I'll see that same sweet, familiar smile that I saw here on this Earth. And THAT'S the story that Hector's life spoke of. The Love of God.
    See you again, "Pop"!

    My father was a proud man, proud to carry his father's name, proud to be an American and proud of his family. His list of accolades was a mile long, a credit to his character. He was smart, honest, charitable, fair, kind and loving. He was an excellent provider, excellent family man, loyal friend and teacher. He called me his baby, his peanut and I will forever hold that dear. His strength, his faith and his love carried me as a child and carried me through his passing. I was always proud of my Dad but never as proud as I was of him in the end. I was honored to receive Communion from him, Praise the Lord and will keep my vow to do all I can in my life so I will be with him, my beautiful Mother and my family in heaven. I Love You Daddy

    Although I was too young to have memories of Hector Bezares, I was able to hear stories of his life from my granny. From these stories, I was able to grasp the type of person he was: compassionate, motivated, and someone who doesn't fret what shouldn't be feared. From the stories alone, I grew a large respect for my great-grandfather, and I wish I had more of an opportunity to have gotten to know him personally. He was an inspiration to many, I'm sure, and I'm proud to follow in his career and personality footsteps. Farewell.

    I have so many great memories as a child growing up close to Grampa. Although we grew apart into my adulthood, I always knew he was there for me. I will miss him, but the thought of him reuniting with my Gammy gives me comfort and brings a smile to my face. God’s speed Gramps.

    Gramps ~ I could talk about all the grand things you did (like taking us to Disney World) or all the incredible places you've been, famous people you've met... but my favorite memory is far more simple. Every time I enjoy a windmill cookie, I will think of you and the joy we always shared while eating them together. I love and miss you. Julie

    I am fortunate to have had a very special relationship with my Father. He was a good man with a loving heart. He never judged me, always supported me. His last words to me were "we don't have to say anything, we know each others heart". I am very proud to be his daughter.I miss him, but I know he left this world with dignity, on his own terms, ready for whatever comes next.

    He was my Godfather and my last surviving uncle. A beautiful man who I love and will truly miss.
    So glad we got to see him last year and that we spoke just a few days ago.
    Farewell Uncle Eckie.
