Nicolas Rosa Gabino passed away on the morning of June 27, 2014 at Loma Linda University Medical Center in Loma Linda CA, Surrounded by family.
He was born in June 1933 in Vieques, PR son to Nicolas Rosa Felix and Damacina Gabino Gonzales. Very early on he set goals to travel and began working in the United States by the age of 19. He spent several years traveling from Puerto Rico, Chicago, New York, Massachusetts, Florida and finally settled down in California. He was an inspirational role model to all whose lives he touched. He was an incredibly hard worker, loving father and husband who devoted his life to his family. He was always quick to laugh and joke around and loved to make his family and friends laugh with him. He had a zest for life and a marvelous sense of humor. His humble, warm, caring spirit, outlook on life, and a constant smile on his face are why we loved him so dearly, and will miss him greatly. He is survived by his wife of 40 years, 9 children, 19 grandchildren, and 14 great grandchildren.
