On October 22, 2021, at the age of 73, Miguel Angel Alicea, fell asleep in death peacefully in Ocala, Florida after a courageous and long battle with Parkinson’s disease. Miguel was a beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to many.

Miguel was born in Orocovis, Puerto Rico on January 5, 1948. He was the first-born son of Clotilde and Aurora Alicea. He grew up in a large family of eight brothers and four sisters. As the oldest son, to help his family, he started working at an early age. He embraced his role as big brother; he was always responsible and committed to doing his best.
His desire to take care of his family lead him to leave home at the age of eighteen, moving to Brooklyn, New York with his relatives. There he continued to cultivate the value of hard work, sacrifice, and the joys that came from the simple things in life. He loved baseball, a strong cup of coffee, and was unbeatable at a game of dominos but of most importance to him was family!

Miguel’s love for his family was always behind his drive and passion to succeed. He worked hard to learn to speak English while working odd jobs to help his family back at home. His passion and determination were evident to all his family and friends. He married and raised his family in Queens, New York. He created multiple businesses, owned a grocery corner store as well as acquired multiple real estate properties. Eventually moving to Orlando, Florida in 1988, then back to Puerto Rico in 1994. Instead of retiring, Miguel started an ice cream business in his small town in Puerto Rico with multiple trucks and created business opportunities for others by franchising customized ice cream trucks. He was an extremely intelligent, exceptionally humble man with many successes in life.

All who knew him would say “Miguel had beautiful green eyes” but behind those beautiful green eyes was a gentle, kind, meek man who always cried when he had to say goodbye to his children and grandchildren after one of their many visits back and forth from Florida to Puerto Rico. As a father he always showed great strengthen, responsibility, wisdom, and compassion; Never afraid to say “I Love You!” He was an amazing grandfather right from the start, never missing a major life event or accomplishment with his grandchildren. He loved spending time with his grandkids on beach vacations, teaching them how to cook his famous meatballs, playing a game of dominos, or just watching a movie with them. Always generous and loving to his children, grandchildren, and cherished family.
Miguel studied the bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses for many years and adhered to many bible truths he learned while studying. His belief was in Jehovah as his God and he drew great comfort in the hope of the resurrection found at Acts 24:15. He found peace and joy in God’s promise of a new earthly paradise and the assurance of being reunited with his loved ones found at Psalm 37:29.
Miquel Angel Alicea was preceded in death by his parents Clotilde and Aurora Alicea, his two brothers Herman Alicea and Marcelino Alicea.

He is survived by his brothers Pedro and wife Ginger Alicea, Dori Alicea, Daniel Alicea, Felix Alicea, Alberto Alicea, and Geraldo Alicea. His precious sisters Carmen and husband Jorge Aquino, Eddie Alvardo, Mary and husband Jerry Alvardo, Awielda and husband Juan Vargas.
He leaves behind three children; daughter Connie Alicea; daughter Melinda and husband Christopher Bradford and son Michael Angel Alicea.
Grandchildren; Alyssa and Alan Serrano, Christopher Bradford II, Brandon Michael and Amanda Roberts, Stefan Bradford, and Alisha Jaelyn Clark.
Along with a host of many nieces, nephews, and cherished extended family and dear friends.
With life always comes change but we start and end with Jehovah God and family! The family of Miguel Alicea would like to thank you all for the love and support that you have shown.

    Abuelo was the best, he made us feel so loved and cherished. He was there for all of our weddings and we loved when he would come to visit or when we would go visit him. When we were together we would practice our Spanish with him and we would always laugh together, he was so warm and loving. He would always cry when we had to say goodbye at the airport.

    Great man, Gentle soul. I remember lots of laughing growing up with him. He spent time with me Stevie and Nelson when we lived on Chaucey street. Mickey used to take us to the car wash on Bushwick then treat us all to burgers.

    An amazing man. I have wonderful memories, I will never forget the times we spent on Chauncey street along with Stevie and Nelson. Mikey used to hang with us, take to the car wash on Bushwick Ave by the cemetery then buy us burgers. A gentile soul and loving man.
