GOODBYE TO OSCAR: Back before Ybor City blossomed into whatever it is today, there was Oscar Aguayo. He was the director of the Ybor Chamber of Commerce when there was no commerce. Before that he was a reporter for the late Tampa Times. When he started with us in 1962, he was one of the few hispanic voices on the staff. He was a good guy. He cared about his community and people in general.
Over a cup of café solo, he would go on and on about the future of Ybor, back when not too many people believed Ybor had one.
When I asked several of his friends what they remembered about this son of Tampa cigarmakers, they would just say he was a good man who cared about people. You should also know that Oscar was a Navy veteran who saw action at Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Leyte and Manila and seldom talked about any of those days. Oscar Aguayo passed away last week.
2. He was a local journalist, and reported for The Tampa Times, an afternoon paper no longer in publication, for many years. He was subsequently employed by The Latin Quarter Chamber of Commerce in Ybor City, and was recognized in print in the late 1970's for his work with The Latin Quarter Art Gallery.
