Memorial Fund for Geraldo Villanueva

Geraldo Benjamin Villanueva, a strong resilient man who fought and overcame many battles throughout his life, is getting ready to fight his final one. Geraldo, “Baby” as we called him, and "Jerry" as he liked to be called, at age 31, is being taken away from us too soon. We are all truly heartbroken for this loss, as we all imagined he would have lived a longer life. No matter what life threw at him he always came out okay – he had will power. There are too many good words to describe our Baby, but what we remember most is his optimism, his intelligence, his generosity, and his huge heart.

He is survived by his beautiful daughter, Arianna Arlene Villanueva, who was the light of his life. In his own words, which he repeated wholeheartedly, she was the reason he was alive. He prided himself most on his daughter and the strong individual she is becoming.

All donations – big and small – are welcomed. Please help my family give our angel the burial he would have wanted and deserves. Anything you can contribute to help us would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and God bless!
