Israel Marrero
May 20, 1956-Sep 17, 2019

Israel Marrero, 63, was granted his angel wings on September 17, 2019 in Orlando, Florida surrounded by his wife and children, as his precious soul was ushered through the portals of heaven to await the reunion of those left behind. Israel was born in the Bronx, NY to Antonio Marrero and Candida Rodriguez on May 20, 1956.  He married the love of his life Maria Teresa Marrero on May 13, 1988.

Israel attended school in the Bronx.  He moved his family to Orlando, Florida on July 6, 1996 and began a job at Clegg & Son Custom Sets and Props.  He loved building sets and worked on several construction sites as a manager.

Israel was spiritually grounded, loved his God and can be heard praying at any time during the day.  His favorite words were, “GIVE GOD A CHANCE…”. He loved to sing and had a beautiful voice.  Israel was all about family and was very involved with his children.  He loved the beach, enjoyed bowling, watching TV, and playing with his dog, Mission.  Israel was a beautiful man inside out with an infectious smile and his kind, compassionate spirit.  Israel understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives.  He was  preceded in death by his mother, Candida Rodriguez Torres; brother, Antonio Marrero;  sister, Gloria Marrero-Velilla; and his sister, Rose Marie Marrero.

He leaves to cherish his memories: his loving wife, Maria Teresa Marrero; his children, Diana,  Marc, Carina,  Desiree, Israel Elias, Talisa Ryela; Grandchildren,  Anthony Batista, Ariana Batista,  Aleixs, Leila, Desi; father, Antonio Marrero;  Siblings;  Mario Marrero (Ruth), Candida-Marrero Knorr (George), Angela Marrero, Luzdivina Marrero, Debbie, iris, William, Joseph, Lydia, Richard, Rosita and Elizabeth; sister-in law, Maria D. Cruz; brother in law, Pastor Higinio “Nino” Velilla, Sr; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.

I want to give a sincere thanks to those who participated in Israel’s Memorial on September 21st, 2019.  Thanks to everyone for the flowers and all the shared memories about Israel.  He was loved and will be missed by many.  Israel’s wishes was to be cremated.

His Loving Wife & Children

    Hi sweety
    I could not bring myself to do anything on Valentines Day. You are my angel up in heaven and I wanted you to know, that I would give anything if I can hold your hand, I would hold you so tightly and never let you go. My angel up in heaven for now we are apart, you’ll always live inside of me deep within my heart. I know you are watching over all of us pop. You would be so proud of Diana, Talisa, Desi, and Izzy. Until we meet again. I love you, your wife Maria

    Hi pop
    I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with you and then I realized...You spent the rest of your life with me. I smile because I know you loved me till the day you went away, and will keep loving me till the day we are together again.
    There are two moments that I will never forget, The moment we met and the moment of your last breath. Pop I still cry everyday, missing you. Love you. Your wife, Maria

    Hi Pop,
    My day seem so long, been having bad days, I have things to do but can't get around to doing them. When I am asked how I'm doing, I say "pretty good" or just "fine". But the truth is, healing from your death will take me a lifetime. The day I met you I found my missing piece. Love you forever. Your wife, Maria

    Hi Pop,
    Missing you so much. Some days and nights are so long. My job is going good, boss and co workers are very understanding. I started my grieving, counseling on Jan 13.
    Some days I wake up and don't know how to start the day, I walk around feeling that life has no meaning, I keep hearing "It will get better." I guess part of living is feeling the bad stuff. I feel like I will bleed to death from the pain, then my thoughts turn to "there is no one to open the jars for me now". I am glad you are not in pain anymore, love you forever, your wife, Maria

    You will always have a special spot in my heart and memories ❤ You were an great man and father and I feel so blessed to have known you.

    I was not able to meet you personally but I felt I knew you through the stories Desi would share with me. You loved your family deeply and unconditionally. You touched so many lives
    May your soul rest in peace. ❤

    Hi Pop,
    They say our heart is the control center of our lives,
    I know we are designed for impact to contribute or make a difference. I will make my heart a priority so I can grieve well and heal. I can't keep going like this. I have cried every day since you left, I know healing is a Journey not a destination. I just don't know where to start. You are everywhere in my life, l love you and miss you so much it hurts. Your wife, Maria

    Pop,
    Happy New Year in heaven. I know you are proud of our son, Izzy. He stayed with me for 3 months. He spent all the holidays with me, Desi spent Christmas and Izzy and Diana call me everyday. If I could have a new year's wish, one that would come true, I'd wish that I could somehow, spend it there with you. Love you, your wife Maria

    Hi Pop,
    First Christmas without you. The photographs around me help to keep you close to me, although you are far away. Christmas time came, the hardest time of all for us to be apart. The children and grandchildren came, They kept your memory alive. Memories will bring me strength and love will see me through. Loving and missing you always,
    Your wife, Maria

    Hi Pop,
    Today I had dinner at Red Lobster with the kids, Anthony and Arianna were there too, and said they miss you and, you were truly so missed. You were connected to everything in my existence. I understand grief has no timetable, I can't see the bend in the road, because my emotional debris is everywhere. I am trying to live life "one moment at a time" I love you always, your wife, Maria

    Hi Pop
    December 17 was not a good day for me. It's been 3 months since you got your angel wings . The pain is so hard for me. My balance of emotions does not exist, my immune system has been compromised losing you, I feel sick all the time. You were the atmosphere of our home and my life. I am working at the place you wanted me to work because it was close to home. I will forever live you, and miss you. Your wife, Maria

    Hey dad, Thanksgiving felt so terrible without you. Nothing feels the same anymore and I feel like my grief was consuming me. I know you are pain free but you are missed terribly. I hate that you were in so much pain to begin with. I'm so sorry for every horrible thing you went through and I wish I couldve taken all your pain away. I love and miss you dad. Nothing will be the same but you are forever in my heart and I will do my best to adjust..

    Hi Pop
    My first birthday and thanksgiving without you. Diana and Omar made it, Bibi was with us too. A very sad day for all of us, but we made it through, Izzy stepped up to the plate in your place. We missed you terribly. I still cry everyday. I feel so lost and speak to you hoping you hear me. Tomorrow I start my new job. When I am outside, or go out, I fake it. I smile, but the truth is my heart is crushed. My feelings were hijacked by grief. I am happy you are painfree. Loving you always. Your wife, Maria

    Hey Dad...I'm at work right now and just started crying.. I have your picture at my desk. It's nice to see your smile everyday. but sometimes my heart becomes overwhelmed. It still doesnt feel real. On Fridays I still have brunch at our place, Dans. We had really nice talks there. Fridays was our day. I still stop at your usual spots. I let some of your friends know that you went with God and they all break down in tears. And they all say you were such a sweetheart. They have nothing but nice things to say about you. I wish you knew how many lives you touched. I love you and miss you more and more every day..

    Hi Pop,
    Today the kids took me to my Red Lobster (birthday) you were so missed. At one point it hurt so bad you were not there, I felt my guts were going through a meat grinder and I was being chewed up from the inside out. I know you are at peace and pain free. I love you

    Hi Sweety
    It's been 2 months since GOD called you home. It feels like it happened yesterday. I miss you so, so much. I feel so lost and out of place. I have no purpose. The pain I feel is unbearable at times. I love you, the kids are fine, I live for them. Please give me a sign that you are okay.
    Your wife, Maria
