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
