MY YOUNG, DAPPER DAD

This is my father, Jose F. Rexach-Cátala

He was born in the small town of Juncos, on the East coast of Puerto Rico in 1911.

He was the oldest of 11 siblings.

His origins were humble yet he made it and became a productive member of his family of origin and community.

As you can see, he was a dapper, dashing Puerto Rican fellow.

In the early 1930’s, he moved to New York City, like many others like him, in search of a better world and the so famous “American dream”.

He worked at anything that came his way and send funds to his family back home.

His younger brothers became engineers and created The Rexach Construction Company that was well known during the early years of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

Most importantly, he married my Mother and started a family of his own.
