Hector Lavoe
Original name: Hector Perez Martinez
Birth: Sep. 30, 1946
New York
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA
Death: Jun. 29, 1993

Salsa Singer. Legendary figure who became one of the biggest stars in that musical genre during the 1960s and 1970s. He played with the likes of Ruben Blades, Tito Puente, and other major Salsa singers of the past and present. His tombstone only lists his son's name, due to the family's request in order not to attract legions of fans to his graves by listing his name on the stone.
