Obituary of Julio Serrano-Correa
Julio Serrano-Correa, 88, of Lancaster, PA, experienced the embrace of the arms of Jesus on Sunday morning, November 8, 2020 at Bob Fryer and Family Inpatient Center of Hospice and Community Care in Mount Joy following a lengthy illness. Born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, he was the son of the late Dolores Serrano and Luisa Correa. He was the husband of Nereida Guzman Serrano for 18 years on July 20.
Julio emigrated to the United States as a young man and was employed by Avis car rental in New York City until he retired in 1996. He attended Open Door Mission where he was baptized into the Christian faith. In addition to walking for pleasure, his two greatest loves were for his family and restaurant dining, especially delighting in seafood.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by a daughter, Lourdes A., wife of Rev. Humphrey S. Afari, of Lititz; two stepdaughters; two grandchildren, Catherine Vega and Carlos Vega; three great grandchildren; and four siblings. He was also preceded in death by five siblings.
