On Wednesday, August 5, 2020, Francisco Corona, loving husband, father and grandfather, died at the age of 87 at his home in Hialeah, Florida.

Paco, as he was called by family and friends, was born on January 3, 1933 in Guayos, Cuba to Francisco Corona and Maria Diaz. On February 18, 1959 he married Juana Neisy Garcia. Together they raised a daughter, Neisy, and a son, Frank, in Sleepy Hollow, where he lived for most of his life.

Paco was a creative individual with many talents. He had a passion for Cuban music and history. Over the years he formed several bands that entertained his fellow Cubans with music from their homeland. He was also an avid collector of antiques, especially Cuban and American memorabilia. In addition, Paco was a talented cook who enjoyed cooking for family and friends. He owned a successful restaurant, Corona's Lunch, and later owned Viera's Stationery, in Sleepy Hollow. Paco is known for his great sense of humor and his outgoing and friendly personality, but his greatest gift was his ability to make others happy.

He is survived by his wife, Juana Neisy, his daughter, Neisy and her husband, Anthony Russo, his son, Frank and his wife, Jo-Ann, and his beloved grandchildren, Gregory and Elisa Russo, and Nicole Cipolla (Corona), Frank, and Raymond Corona. He is also survived by two brothers, Fernando of Las Vegas and Felix of Sleepy Hollow.
