Alfredo Cruz Sr., 83 of Cincinnati, Ohio passed away peacefully on July 11, 2017 with his family by his side. He was born to Jesus and Aurora Madrid on December 27, 1933, Mexico City, Mexico. He later married Nicolasa Garcia and she preceded him in death on April, 28, 2017.
Alfredo was a calm gentleman who carried a deep love for his family, friends, and most importantly the Lord. One of his signature phrases was that “Punctuality is a sign of royalty”, this is a virtue he prided himself the most on. His kind face and warm smile will be greatly missed, but never forgotten as he will live forever in our hearts.
Alfredo is survived by his loving children: Martha (Manuel) Herrera, Javier (Angelica) Cruz, Alfredo (Phy) Cruz Jr., Esther (Jaime) Merlo, Laura Leal, and Luz (Anselmo G) Rodriguez; grandchildren: Anna Lilia, Roxana, Miguel Angel, Oscar, Marco, Gustavo, Hy Anh, Jaime, Michelle, Francisco, Jazmin, Efrain, Leonela, Daniel, Sandra, and Alex; and great grand children: Manny, Victoria, Martha Elena, Rafael, Nadia, Jason, Evelyn, Adelynn, Caleb, Connor, Elleanor, Natalie, Devin, Andres, Isabella and Lucas.
