So sad, I really had many a good time with Chico and friends. Monte sends his sympathies as well, spent many hours at the Holiday Hotel Bar with him when Chico was their bartender. He was a very good dancer, love that rock n roll. Certainly will miss him but will always remember his smile.

We'll all miss Chico!
We always had great chats at Holiday Hotel!!!!! He was too funny and made GREAT ceviche......He will be missed!!! Lots of good memories!!!
He was the last person to serve me a drink as a single man. Was heading to the church one boiling hot June day with my brother and best man (same person), stopped at the Holiday Hotel for a little liquid courage, in a suit, and he told me I needed a brain!! Turned out to be shooter to go with my beer. Then went and got married. Memories, he will be missed......
Many, many yrs. ago, he delivered the Miami Herald (puzzle done) via a red scooter to my husband at the orginal La Perla Escondida now where the Bananas Hotel is. RIP
My buddy Chico...a great man has left us...RIP buddy.
