Carmelo Mojica Nieves

July 14, 1929 — March 7, 2024


Carmelo Mojica Nieves, age 94, currently of Bridgeport, passed away peacefully in his home. Carmelo was born in Toa Alta, Puerto Rico, on July 14, 1929.  Most of his adult life he resided in Carolina, Puerto Rico but after hurricane Maria, he along with his beloved wife, relocated to be closer to the family in Bridgeport.   A Family man known for his calm demeanor, he brought warmth and happiness to those around him even beyond the delicacies created with his hands. You see, Carmelo worked as a Baker in Puerto Rico throughout his life.  He was committed and dedicated himself to his craft with skill and passion. His dedication to his work was evident to all who crossed paths with him. 

He is the beloved husband of Luz N. Villafañe whom he married over 60 years ago.  In addition to his wife, he is survived by his daughter Carmen L. Santos  and her husband Mike; his siblings, Aida Collazo, Jose Mojica &  Rosa M. Mojica; as well as his grandchildren Kimberly Santos, Joshua Santos, Eneida Mojica & Luis Mojica; and 10 great-grandchildren with a special mention of Gabriel who enjoyed his Great Grandpa pretty much daily since birth. He is preceded in death by his son Luis Mojica, his father Juan Mojica Gonzalez, and mother Dominga Nieves Pizarro.  

A Visitation service will be held on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, at Funeraria Luz De Paz in Bridgeport, CT. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM.

In this time of grief and loss, let us remember Carmelo for the love he shared and the memories he created. May he rest in peace knowing that he was cherished by so many. Until we meet again.
