Constante was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and a wonderful friend to many. He was a longtime member of the Asociacion Benefica Hijos de Borinquen and Saint Patrick Church. He celebrated life everyday by sharing his love for music with family and friends that brought so many of us together. If he was not playing music on the porch, he was working around the house, reading or playing scratch off bingo cards. Constante had an excitement for life and the most contagious smile that will be forever missed. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Constante's name may be made to St Patrick Church. His hard work, integrity and kindness live on in the memories of everyone who knew him.
