Alfredo J. Gavilondo, 86, of Cazenovia, formerly of Tamarac, Florida, passed away Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at Crouse Community Center in Morrisville. He was born December 29, 1933 to Alfredo and Margarita Gavilondo in Havana, Cuba. Alfredo graduated from Academia del Comercio in Havana and soon thereafter he began his career in the banking industry. He met his wife of 62 years, Rebeca Acosta Gavilondo, at the Casino Español in 1957, and they married in the summer of 1958. Alfredo and Rebeca emigrated to the United States in 1965 to find a better life for themselves and their two young sons. They settled in Ohio, where Alfredo took work at the Kidron Body truck assembly plant, but soon returned to a career in banking in Cleveland. Alfredo moved his family to South Florida in 1972, where he remained in banking until his retirement.
