Rosamar, I am saddened to hear of Hector's passing. He was a great friend and fellow worker at DuPont. While at work, we found out that daughter Marissa and my son John attended grade school together. I would tell Hector to tell Marissa to stop kicking John in P.E., and he would get a good laugh out of that. He will be missed. RIP Hector.
