<div itemprop="description">**ENGLISH TO FOLLOW <br> <br>El lunes 10 de Febrero de 2020, Raul Puente, nuestro padre y amado esposo, descanso en paz a la edad de 73 años. <br> <br>Nació el 24 de enero de 1947 en Cali, Colombia, hijo de Raúl Puente y Ángela Puente. El 7 de marzo de 1971, se casó con Yolanda Hernández. Criaron a dos hijos, Diego Raúl y Steve, y a una hija, María Isabel. Aunque trabajó en muchos oficios, pasó la mayor parte de su carrera como soldador industrial con gran orgullo. <br> <br>En su juventud, disfrutaba pasar tiempo con sus primos y estar a menudo al aire libre compartiendo siempre con nosotros esos preciosos recuerdos. Se unió al ejército a los 16 años y poco después conoció a quién sería su esposa durante casi 50 años. Le apasionaba la pintura, el ciclismo, la música y la comida. Sus obras de arte era simple, hermosa y genuina. Sus inspiraciones sin duda fueron influenciadas por los paisajes que encontró durante los muchos viajes que realizo a través de Colombia y más tarde, a través de Canadá. La música y la comida eran parte del tejido de su vida que compartía con entusiasmo, además de su sonrisa y sentido del humor característicos que nos trajeron tanta risa y alegría. <br> <br>Lo extrañarán y lo recordarán con amor su esposa Yolanda, sus tres hijos, María Isabel, Diego Raúl y Steve, su hermano Jairo, sus hermanas Francia y Yaneth, y varios primos, sobrinas, sobrinos, asi como sus siete hermosos nietos, Zoe, Yanik, Cali, Gabriel, Gael, Xavier y Clara. El se ha unido a sus queridos padres y a su querida hermana Gladis. <br> <br>El próximo sábado se celebrará una misa especial en la parroquia de San Lucas, 106A avenue Anselme Lavigne, Dollard des Ormeaux, H9A 1N8, a las 11 a.m. <br>Una pequeña recepción con café y postre se llevará a cabo en la iglesia después de la ceremonia. <br> <br> <br> <br>On Monday February 10, 2020, Raul Puente, our father and loving husband, passed in peace at the age of 73. <br> <br>He was born on January 24th 1947 in Cali, Colombia to Raul Puente and Angela Puente. On March 7th, 1971, he married Yolanda Hernandez. They raised two sons, Diego Raul and Steve, and one daughter, Maria Isabel. Though he worked many jobs, he spent most of his career as a proud industrial welder. <br> <br>Growing up he enjoyed spending time with his cousins and being outdoors often sharing with us these fond memories. He joined the military at 16 and shortly thereafter met who was to be his wife for almost 50 years. He had a passion for painting, cycling, music and food, among other things. His artwork was simple, beautiful and genuine. His inspirations no doubt were influenced by the landscapes he encountered during the many road trips across Colombia and later on, across Canada. Music and food were part of the fabric of his life which he eagerly shared in addition to his signature smile and sense of humor which brought us so much laughter and joy. <br> <br>He will be missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Yolanda, his three children, Maria Isabel, Diego Raul and Steve, his brother Jairo, his sisters Francia and Yaneth, and several cousins, nieces, nephews, and seven beautiful grand children, Zoe, Yanik, Cali, Gabriel, Gael, Xavier and Clara. He is joined by his cherished parents and loving late-older sister Gladis. <br> <br>A special mass will be held this coming Saturday at Saint Luke’s Parish, 106A avenue Anselme Lavigne, Dollard des Ormeaux, H9A 1N8, at 11am. A small reception with coffee and desert will be held at the church after the ceremony. <br> <br></div>
