Javier was a true inspiration to others. He loved to tell stories and make people laugh. His smile was contagious and his animated personality and expressions could light up any room. He loved music and had a voice that could touch your soul. He was a hard worker and a good provider. He was a proud Puerto Rican man with a heart of gold, who loved all of his children and family dearly. He was one-of-a-kind and he will be forever remembered and sadly missed.
