Passing of Melvin Moreno I, of Moreno Ranches, Inc.

Melvin Moreno I , 1929-2014

With great sadness we inform that Melvin Moreno passed peacefully, surrounded by his family on December 20, 2014, at the age of 85. He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Herminia Izada de Moreno, who passed in 2011. He is survived by his sons, Melvin (Teresa) andMilton (Ircia), both of Miami, Florida; his grandchildren: YanietMoreno Santos, Dayana Moreno, Kelvin Moreno, Milton Moreno II, andMichael Moreno; and his great-grandchildren: Nicholas Santos Morenoand Evion Moreno.Melvin was born in Nuevitas, Camagüey, Cuba, where he grew up on the family agricultural enterprises, Casillas-Moreno and Ranchos Moreno. 

After marrying Herminia, he devoted his efforts to operating and growing a wide range of agricultural businesses. Forced by the political conflict in Cuba, Melvin and Herminia set their ambitions on a greater future for their family in the United States, where they moved to in 1996. He will always be remembered as a savvy businessman and family man, whose greatest passion was his love for
the cattle industry. He leaves us rich in memories and in love.
