Obituary of Cecilio Munoz
Cecilio Munoz of Buena NJ passed away on Sunday at Atlantic Care in Pomona, NJ. Cecil / Chilo, as his friends and family called him, arrived in Newark, NJ with his parents and siblings in the early fifties. In 1964, he married the love of his life Lydia E. Rosa. When their two oldest children Arlene and Cee were very young, they moved to South Jersey so that they can provide a safer environment for their children. In 1982, their third child Charis was born. Cecil retired from Wheaton Plastic in Mays Landing. Cecil loved to work in the carpentry field and always maintained his home in perfect shape. Cecil's priority was his spouse, children and grandchildren.
Cecil was predeceased by his parents, Maria and Felix Munoz and sister, Gloria Munoz. He is mourned by his wife Lydia, his oldest daughter Arlene Munoz (of Vineland, NJ) her son Gerald IV and daughter Adrianna Velazquez and grandchild Tristan; his son Cee Munoz, his spouse Janet Porter Munoz, their daughters, Cee Anna and Katie Munoz of Tulsa, Oklahoma; his daughter Charis (of Buena, NJ), her husband Robert Cain IV and their children Robby, Gabriella and Makayla Cain. He leaves behind his brother Primitivo and spouse Carmen Munoz of Rincon, PR, Demas Munoz of Florida and his youngest sister Irene Lopez of Florida.
