Francisco Mesa Labrador, 75, passed away on Sunday, November 14, 2021 due to heart complications. Francisco was born on July 24, 1946 in Pinar del Río, Cuba to Julian and Maria de los Angeles Mesa. After immigrating to the United States in his early thirties, he lived in Puerto Rico for twelve years and later moved to Florida with his family. He is survived by his wife, Rosamaria, two daughters, Rosemary and Maryrose, and son-in-law, Jared. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world. Having owned and operated restaurants for most of his life, he loved all types of foods and was an amazing cook. He was known to many as ‘Pancho,’ and those that knew him will remember him for his contagious laughter. If he wasn’t telling jokes or playing pranks, he was recounting (for the hundredth time) a story or remembrance from his youth. A visitation for Francisco will be held Friday, November 19, 2021 from 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM at Forest Lawn Funeral Home, 5740 South Pine Ave, Ocala, FL 34480. The burial service will take place at Miami Memorial Park Cemetery in Miami, Florida. We invite friends and family in the area to attend. In lieu of any gifts or flowers, we simply ask that you keep our family in your thoughts and prayers.
