Obituary of Hector Portillo

Hector Rolando Portillo, age 65, of Bridgeport, peacefully passed away into the glorious presence of the Lord on January 19, 2018 in his home. He was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, but relocated to the United States many years ago. Hector was well known by many as a barber, no doubt, talented in his trade, which he practiced since the early age of 18. He worked at various locations throughout Bridgeport, which allowed him to become popular in the community and quickly became known as one of the most detailed barbers around. Hector loved Salsa music and dancing, perhaps more than your regular love for something. Hector would travel to New York to take various classes and would stop at nothing to expand his dancing abilities and enjoyed nothing better than to hear a Salsa band playing live. 
            Hector is the son of the late, Hector Portillo and the late, Blanca Lopez. He is survived by his sons Allan Rolando Portillo and Jose Luis Portillo (Shreena); his daughters Jessica Alvarado (Fernando), Yvonne Colon, Yvette Castillo (Ricardo) and Velia Portillo.
