It is with great sadness that we are informing you of the passing of Fernando “Nando” Acosta Jr. on November 21, 2022. He is survived by his mother Celeste and 2 younger siblings, JC and JP. Those of us who knew Nando (and we were many) can attest that he was one of the kindest, most selfless & loyal men we have ever had the honor of knowing. An energetic & uplifting spirit, Nando brought joy, laughter, life, dancing, and singing to every space he filled. With great sorrow, we are humbly asking you to consider a donation to help Nando’s family with funeral expenses and any relevant residual expenses, in light of his sudden and unexpected passing. If you have any questions regarding the funeral arrangements, please feel free to contact me at We will continue to provide up-to-date information on this site according to his family’s wishes.
