"Cano" as he was affectionately called was an Angel here on earth. In his early years he owned two Bodegas in the Inlet in AC. He was very well known for his generosity, his pure heart, and ravish good looks! Years later, he worked for Caesar's, Atlantic City in Environmental Services for 15 years. There he met even more people who grew to love him endlessly. Cano was blessed to live his years of life happy, joyful and always the man of the party. He was also blessed with extra family because he cared for everyone. Hundreds of friends that will never forget him. We will never forget the penny candies, th many parties he attended and the endless whispers he swore he did. R.I.P. to the greatest man that ever did it!!!
