Lazaro Naranjo, 69, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past twelve years, formerly of North Bergen, NJ, passed away Friday, November 19, 2021 in Cape Coral. He was born May 14, 1952 in Cuba to Evidio and Marina Naranjo, now deceased.
Larry was a man who exercised perfection in everything he did. If you ever had the privilege of watching him do any type of manual work, you can see the precision with every movement of his hands. Everything was always in order; a place for everything and everything in its place. He was someone you wanted to know, because no matter what you asked him, he knew a little about everything… especially the weather! Larry was funny even though he didn’t know it. Asking him to explain something left you even more confused. What his daughters like to often describe as “Clear as mud.”
He was not one to show care or love with words, but he showed it in his actions. Whenever anyone needed anything, without hesitation, he came to your aid. He always picked up the phone when you called. If you needed help on a house project, he never asked for anything in return. If you had an emergency late at night, it was never an inconvenience to him. It is no wonder why he was so loved by so many. He was the center of our family and his departure has left a great void in our hearts. May we all remember how he lived, how he laughed and how he showed his love.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 33 years, Nellie Naranjo of Cape Coral; two loving children, Beatriz Valle (Juan) of Miramar, FL, and Pilar Naranjo of Hialeah, FL; sisters, Migdalia Naranjo of Miramar, and Susie Naranjo of Hollywood, FL; as well as four grandchildren, Emily Naranjo, Briella Valle, DJ Valle, and Jordan Valle.
The family will receive friends for a time of visitation from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM Sunday, November 21, 2021 at Mullins Memorial, 3654 Palm Beach Blvd., Fort Myers, FL 33916.
