Jorge Hernandez 'George' Aguel was born in or near Havana, Cuba to Jorge Juan Aguel Chaar (1912 Los Arabos, Matanzas, Cuba - 1971 ___, Boyeros, Cuba) and unknown mother. His mother's name may have been Estella or Estelle.

His sister was Fara Estela Aguel (1938 Cuba - 2009 Las Vegas, NV). In Cuba she married Alfonso Cristobal. She died retaining her maiden name Aguel.

When George was very young he came to the United States looking for his mother. A record of his 1956 social security application proves he was in the United States when he was 16, maybe younger.

On December 27, 1958, in Los Angeles, California, he married Irma Leticia Escatell, b. ~1942. They had four daughters: Irma 'Isa', Martha, Fara and Laura. Following their divorce, his union with Yamileth produced a son George Edward Aguel.

George became a U.S. citizen on April 22, 1969 in Los Angeles.

As a successful entrepreneur, he owned a chain of La Adelita restaurant-bakeries and developed land he owned in southern California into horse ranches.

He died from complications of diabetes. He was survived by his sister Fara E., his four daughters, his sons Vicente Aguel and George E. Aguel, and no less than a dozen grandchildren.

from Brenda Aguel - After his divorce from Irma, he legally married Alba M. Castillo (born 1947) from Managua, Nicaragua. They met and were married in Los Angeles, California. Their union lasted about 35 years until his death in 2006. Together they raised a son, Vicente Aguel (born 1979 in Los Angeles, Cal.). During their years together Jorge and Alba worked hard to establish stability and security for their family. They owned a company that bought and sold heavy equipment internationally. They where very hands on. They personally delivered the equipment to different countries. The delivery would usually consist of driving from the US all through Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador to Nicaragua. They would be on the road for weeks at a time. This lucrative venture went on for many years until the communists took over Nicaragua. With their profits, they decided to venture into a new business and opened various restaurants/bakeries named "La Adelita." La Adelita gained a strong following and became a landmark in LA. During their marriage they also had large holdings in commercial property and residential property. After his passing in 2006 Jorge and Alba's only son, Vicente Aguel, an award- winning equestrian, manages all of their holdings in commercial and residential properties. Vicente Aguel married Brenda L. Meza (Brenda L. Aguel born in Los Angeles, Ca), licensed clinical mental health therapist. They decided to continue growing the family business and now focus their time on their commercial property holdings. With Vicente's vast knowledge and business sense and Brenda's background helping underprivileged communities, together they have organized various events helping intercity youth. Together, their philanthropic work have helped children all over the US, Mexico and Nicaragua. Vicente's dedication to community was recognized by the Byzantine Latino Quarter Business Improvement District by naming him President. Vicente has a son, Vicente Scott Aguel. - Brenda L.
