Three years after his birth, Aurel and his family immigrated to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he worked as a mechanic for refrigerated trucks to provide for his family. Several years later, his son married and all four eventually came to live in Brooklyn, New York. In 1974, after deciding to get away from the hustle and bustle of New York, the four packed their things into the Chevy Impala, and drove to South Florida where they would settle into their permanent home. Soon after, he was blessed with two loving grandchildren, Jason and Melissa. He continued to work hard at an automotive body shop to save up and later buy rental properties to provide for his ever growing family. For years he and his family enjoyed the simple things, but always enjoyed them together as a family. And recently, got to meet the newest member of the family, his great grandson Reece. Aurel passed away on his 83rd birthday, with his son at his side. He will be missed terribly by all, but the memories we have with him will last forever. Rest in eternal peace Tata.
