Wilfredo served his country proudly in the United States Navy. After completing his military service, he worked as a grocery manager for Balducci's Food Market located in New York City until his retirement in 2007.
Wilfredo appreciated life and lived it to the fullest. He was a spiritual man who loved the Lord and found peace and comfort in reading the Bible in his quiet time.

He was sociable and outgoing and was known for his friendly conversations with everyone he came in contact with.
Above all, Wilfredo took tremendous pride in his family and his love for them was unwavering. He felt especially enriched and filled with immeasurable joy when it came to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and treasured the quality time they spent together.

“To laugh often and love much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to give of one’s self;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.”
