Justino Roldan

April 2, 1936 — July 4, 2015

Justino Roldan, 79, originally from San Lorenzo PR, but at the time living in Bristol CT,  passed away peacefully  on Saturday July 4th, 2015, at Amberwoods Nursing Home, surrounded by the love of  his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Justino was born on April 2nd,  1936 to parents Juan Roldan and Angelina Medina. He spent his childhood and early adulthood in San Lorenzo Puerto Rico. In his twenties he migrated to New York City where he met and married Rosa Burgos, the mother of 5 of 7 children. In New York City and later in Chicago, IL, he worked as a taxi driver, getting to own his own medallion, becoming a master of the traffic routes of both cities. He also lived briefly in Memphis Tennessee, the home of Elvis Presley.
He enjoyed fishing, playing dominoes and poker, and silly jokes and pranks. He was a master at amateur carpentry. He liked the traditional music of the Puerto Rican Trovadores (musica jibara) and until the day he died he was a jibaro at heart, the same little boy from San Lorenzo that played in the river with his brothers and sisters.
He is the father to Justino Roldan Jr. (Bebo), Wilfredo Roldan (Freddy), Roberto Roldan, Yvette Roldan (Yvie), Angelina Roldan (Angie), Leonardo Roldan (Lenny) and Juan J. Roldan. He is grandfather to Yesenia Muriel, Yajaira Martinez, Yairmari Roldan, Stephanie Muriel, David Casanova, Natasha Muriel, Saily M. Roldan, Melanie A. Roldan, Leonardo A. Roldan and Rosaleaniz Roldan. His five great grandchildren are:  Nicanor Saul, Nicole Lynn, Giovanni (Geo), Naveya and Khalon. They will all carry him in their hearts.
According to his last wishes, Justino will be cremated and his ashes scattered in a special place his children have chosen according to his instructions. Even though there won’t be any wake or burial, friends can leave their message or condolences on this site. Justino’s children will check periodically. Photos will also be shared here.
