I am so saddened to hear the news of this great man.
I attended that 1st show of Le Grand David in February 1977 with my friend Anthony Rais.
Since then I have been so lucky to have seen the show over a hundred times.
My fond memories of Cesareo dates back before that 1st show.
My Dad owned The Little Jack Horner Joke And Magic Shop and The Magic Parlour on Tremont Street in Boston, stores that supplied pocket tricks and stage illusions to professional and amateur magicians.
Cesareo was one of our best customers who would come to our store almost every week.
He was a soft spoken gentleman who always wore a giant smile on his face.
I could hear him now yelling "Bew Tee Foul" (beautiful) with such appreciation as how I would demonstrate a magic trick for him.
The magic world has lost one of our true greats.
There will never be another like him.
Rest in peace my friend
