Hiram Maldonado

October 9, 1959 — September 12, 2020

Hiram Maldonado, age 60, beloved son of the Late Hiram Maldonado and the late Irene Tejada has passed away into the glorious rest of the Lord on September 12, 2020 in his home while surrounded by his loving family; Hiram was born in the Bronx, New York but just recently relocated to the Bridgeport area; Hiram was a good guy with a heart of gold, throughout his life, as he resided in New York he would lend a hand to anyone and everyone, if ever he saw a need, or an opportunity to help. At times, he could probably use some help himself, but he would set his own needs aside to help a fellow man; He enjoyed watching sports and looked forward to spending the best times of his life, which were the times he spent with his grandchildren. Those times were the best for him and nothing else gave him so much meaning in life. As simple and helpful his heart was in the right place, with the family he loved, the family that meant the world to him and nothing had more value; As Hiram departed this earth, no doubts in anyone's heart, God's love embraced him as he walked spiritually out of this world into the precious peaceful rest of the Lord. Hiram is dad to two children Hiram Maldonado, Jr. and Brenda Maldonado; He was also survived by his siblings, Marta Gonzalez, Shirley Gonzalez, Albert Gonzalez, Rene Maldonado and ANthony Maldonado; His grandchildren Alyssa Justiniano, Benjaymin Rodriguez and Emma Serrano; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends whom will sorely miss him; Friends are invited to attend calling hours on Sunday, September 20, 20202 beginning at 12:30 P.M. until 3:00 P.M. at the Funeraria Luz de Paz, (Peaceful Light Funeral Home), 426 E. Washington Avenue, Bridgeport, CT; Final disposition will be Privately held, but please share to enjoy your thoughts, memories, prayers, pictures and so much more EXCLUSIVELY at www.luzdepaz.com; PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION REGARDING RESTRICTIONS due to COVID 19 Regulations, restrictions and policy implemented at all times within our facility! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Covid-19 Virus, the rules, regulations, limitations, and everything that has been stated by the government health officials has been challenging for all and funeral homes are not exempt from such plentiful rules and regulations. We want everyone to keep in mind, thus regulations and rules are made for the GENERAL well being and health of the public. In Connecticut we have had the bountiful Blessing to see that our efforts of committing to the guidelines set forth to prevent the exposure to the virus has not gone unrewarded, BUT we know and can clearly see around the world that getting comfortable will only create the possibility to allow all of our efforts to become null and void and all the progress we have had, be destroyed. Our State once again moves on to open and return back to normal implementing each phase, the current guidelines have determined that during viewing and visitation, and Funeral Services and these guidelines are STRICTLY adhered to and all attendees are expected to adhere to such regulations during their visit or unfortunately will be required to request such person (s) to exit our facility for the safety of all. Under no circumstance can we permit our facility to become a place where others should feel nothing less than safe and welcomed. Therefore such are the things we request all visitors to follow: - 49 persons or less would be the amount of persons permitted inside the funeral home at one given time. -Anyone outside will be able to hear the service and all announcements made throughout the evening. -anyone Inside the facility and even those outside creating the line down the back ramp to await others to exit to be granted the opportunity to enter it is REQUESTED that a 6 ft social distancing requirements be followed -Back entrance of the funeral home will be the EXCLUSIVE ENTRANCE AND EXIT throughout the entire viewing time. -Masks are REQUIRED TO ENTER -Masks are REQUIRED DURING THE ENTIRE STAY -Masks MUST cover the face and mouth during the entire stay (No exceptions) (anyone not covering their mouth and nose during their stay will be asked to leave immediately. PLEASE EVERYONE THIS IS FOR EVERYONE. -ALL FRIENDS are requested by the family and funeral home to come in when guided by funeral home staff, pay your respects, greet the family if you wish, the exit to the parking lot allowing others that may be in line to come in and do the same, BUT absolutely ONLY Blood relatives instructed by the family will remain inside the facility. Everyone's cooperation is what makes this possible and allows us to make this happen regardless of the restrictions and allowing everyone who loved, cherished and appreciated their loved one to come, pay their respects and all share time as a family, comfortably without having to go outside over and over to allow others to come in. Yet with everyone's cooperation, they remain inside as the family and everyone that comes through inspires them as the love that their loved one shared with each and everyone is supporting their hearts and minds with their presence and shared memories! We understand the cumbersome and uncomfortable nature of the wearing of masks, BUT: Consider this : YOU may run into someone ASYMPTOMATIC (they don't know, and you don't know) and suddenly your exposed because inside the building you decided, I don't like the mask covering my nose. YOU return home and expose your entire family including parents and even causing the death of someone dear to you, like a grandparent or parent as we just experienced with a family served, simply because you didn't want to be uncomfortable for 10 minutes which should be the maximum amount of time any friends would remain in the funeral home. Is it worth it? We may be young, we may be strong, and we may be "healthy" but maybe just maybe someone you run into is not and YOU are the reason they are now possibly exposed. It's not worth it, let us all work together while we are out to protect each other, protect our families, protect our homes until this invisible threat which has been a nightmare for so many, becomes a memory most want to forget! Let us work to keep the levels where they are and even lower with our help and God's guidance and blessing above all!
