Cesar Gracia, 79, died January 3, 2021, at Lakeshore Hospital in Shelby, Michigan.
Mr. Gracia was born July 2, 1941, to Moises and Petra Gracia. At a very early age, he picked up a hammer and joined his father in construction, a career that spanned nearly fifty years and eventually led him to settle in Michigan with his wife, Adelina (Nina).
An avid hunter and fisherman, Cesar spent countless hours in the outdoors, but there was nothing he enjoyed more than gathering with his family. He loved sitting around the table, talking and laughing with his children and grandchildren, a sound his daughters remember as exuberant and infectious. To his children, he was a faithful provider, teacher, hero, and the best grandfather anyone could have asked for.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Adelina, of Shelby, Michigan; his daughters and their spouses, Anne and Paul Byl, Elizabeth and Lee Ludwig, Maggie and Scott Granlee, Lori and Tom Schummer, Cindy and Phil Delgado; 15 grandchildren; 8 great grandchildren; three sisters and their spouses, as well as several nieces, cousins, and extended family members.
A public memorial service will be held Saturday, May 22nd, 2 pm at First Baptist Church in Hart. Condolences may be sent to 9941 W. Buchanan Rd, Shelby, Michigan 49455.
