In memory of
Rigoberto Bedoya
Rigoberto Bedoya EASTON Rigoberto Bedoya, a man who represents all that is kind, peacefully passed away surrounded by his family on June 29, 2020, after 82 years of living a life of example, patience, and generosity. Born in Ebejico, Colombia, and raised in Medellin along with his 10 brothers and sisters, Rigoberto met the love of his life Marina and after a whirlwind romance they purchased their first home in Bello where they would live, work and raise their first six children. In 1976, determined to give his family a better life, Rigoberto, a steadfast man who thrived in consistency and routine, took the greatest risk of his life. He immigrated from Bello, Antioquia to Easton, PA to take a job at McGinley Mills in Phillipsburg, NJ. He worked tirelessly and in 1978 he successfully brought his six children to Easton. In 1981, he and Marina were blessed with their 7th oops, Jessica. This small-town boy became a world traveler from Italy and Chile to China, he loved traveling with his family. But Rigoberto remained close to his small-town roots, and in his retirement years, he loved traveling to Colombia often to visit family and enjoy the eternal spring weather of Medellin. Rigoberto had a giving heart and he helped people out whenever possible. He enjoyed listening to musica vieja, doing the daily wonder-word search, and sitting on his back porch enjoying the warm sun. The essence of his love for life was his family, his wife Marina, his seven children: Rigo Jr., Dora P. (Echeverri), Wilson, Janet, Alba Nury (Carollo), Ivan, and Jessica (Yung). His heart abounded with love and he called David and Alfredito sons. His life was full with 17 grandchildren and great-granddaughters Gabi and Brianna. Rigoberto faithfully attended births, birthdays, graduations, sports and everyday events with his grandkids. Rigoberto cherished his friendships. His connections to people resulted in life long relationships that he nurtured over many years. With a zest for life that is incomparable, an inspirational love of family and friends, and a smile that could light up any room, Rigoberto leaves a legacy of charm, wit, graciousness, and optimism. And above all, love. A calling hour will be held on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Morello Funeral Home Inc., 3720 Nicholas Street, Easton, PA (Palmer Twp). A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, July 2, 2020, at 10 a.m. in Our Lady of Mercy Parish at 132 S. Fifth Street, Easton. Interment will be in Gethsemane Cemetery, Palmer Twp.
