Leonel Lara, "Corneta"
Mayor Daniel Guerrero, the San Pedro Town Council, and Staff would like to express its sincere condolences to the Lara friends and family on the sad passing of Mr. Leonel Lara, affectionately known as "Corneta".
Mr. Leonel was an avid fisherman and a former employee at the San Pedro Town Council, but he was popularly known for selling hot Belizean fish empanadas, made by his wife, as he paraded throughout the town on his bicycle ringing his bell.
The town will surely miss his familiar face and delicious empanadas. We hope his family and friends find the strength in each other to overcome this great loss. May his soul rest in peace.
