Rafael Toledo passed away peacefully on Monday November 23rd in his home in Tampa, FL. He is survived by his wife of 60 years Natividad and his sons Rafael and Robert. Rafael was born in Puerto Rico on October 29th 1940. As a child, he loved to swim and play baseball with his friends. He had three siblings named Loly, Vincente, and Carmen. He was the third child of Ricardo and Justina Toledo. He moved to New York City when he was 17 years old and started working in a Baby Clothes manufacturing company. He worked there for over 40 years and was loved by all the people he worked with. He was an awesome provider and hard worker whom didn’t complain much. A truly peaceful soul. As an adult, he loved to play softball, dominos, and spend time with his family. After enduring the last three years with End Stage Renal Disease, he was found to have a cancerous tumor which proved to be too much to bear. He went to be with his Lord and Savior and is now at peace. The Lord blessed him to see his children’s, children’s, children. We are thankful to God for giving us a loving father and faithful husband. He was always there for us and was a peaceful soul that was loved by SO many. We will miss his presence but know he is now in a much better place. In that we take comfort. We love you Pops!!!
