Hector Vanegas Memorial Fund

Hector Vanegas Memorial Fund

To honor the great memory of a true friend, colleague, husband, father and son. 

Hector was a true gentleman. He was smart and kind and delighted people with his warm personality and soft spoken voice. A man of confidence, he was incredibly talented in his job and earned the respect of people throughout the cigar industry. We are better for having had the experience of knowing him and we will always remember him fondly.

A man with a heart of gold.

Funds will be transferred to Xiomara Torrez, his daughter Mariel and his son Gabriel in Honduras.

Our thoughts are with his family,
