Manuel Texido "Papi" Gutierrez
Birth: Oct. 12, 1915
Santiago de Cuba
Santiago de Cuba, Cuba
Death: Apr. 12, 1992
Miami-Dade County
Florida, USA

Papi had a very wise saying. "Andando se quita el frio". It means keep moving, you'll stay warm. I believe that a lot of the most important messages my father taught me I learned the best, after he passed. As I revisited his wise thoughts in my adult life, I realized my dad was too special of a man to not share him with all of you in this online memorial.

He was a very special man.

Manuel Gutierrez was born in Cuba and emigrated to the US with his wife Herminia and his daughters with Herminia: Amy and Lillian. He had one daughter from a previous marriage, Sonia, whom he loved, very, very much.

His daughter Jackie was born after they arrived in the USA. His son Manuel Gutierrez Jr was born in 1968 and passed away the same day. His memorial is on findagrave. He was laid to rest in the "Wren" section of Vista Gardens. Thank you to Amorifera for taking a picture of dad's grave marker, (wall crypt) and the picture of the front of Vista Memorial Gardens, were papi is interred.

My dad was a teacher. He taught ESL math at Hollenbeck Jr. High in East Los Angeles. He and mom moved to Miami in 1983.

He passed away from kidney failure and not a day goes by that we don't miss him. rest in blissful peace, Papi.

Dad's favorite saying was "Andando se quita el frio". It translates to "Keep moving, you will dispel the cold (stay warm". He had to keep moving and teaches me the wisdom of living this life by his example.

Hi Papi, I inherited your jawline. I remember your apnea and I got it too. I want you to know the doctors moved my jaw forward in a long operation. I look different now, but you are still my dad and I miss being able to see you. Save a game of dominoes f...(Read more)
