Vivaldo Lasso, loving husband, and father, passed away at the age of eighty-two on August 5th, 2023. Born on April 20, 1941, and raised in Ecuador to Medardo and Zenhita Lasso, Vivaldo moved to New York where he worked as a computer programmer on early IBM machines and where he eventually met his wife of 45 years, Carmen Lasso.

Vivaldo was an award-worthy storyteller and found immense pleasure in taking a listener on a journey throughout one of his experiences. He was an individual who others would naturally gravitate to as he had a warm and welcoming presence to anyone from all walks of life. Not only did he light up the room with his presence, but he was always unapologetically himself and found incredible joy spending time with his family and loved ones, coaching, and playing soccer, listening to Christian sermons, and dancing to music. Vivaldo was also known to be a bountiful giver so that others could enjoy the things in life.

In addition to his wife, Vivaldo is survived by his two daughters, Zenhita Lasso Young (John) and Edna Ivette Gotay, brother Medardo Lasso, and three sisters Bolivia Torres, Maria Moscouris, and Neddy Lasso. Vivaldo was also a uncle to five: Patricia Torres, Arlene DePrizio, Lesly Morales, Francisco and Pablo Torres. Additionally, he has six grandchildren: Nicole Matos (Manuel), Johnathan Godwin, Alexander Lowe, Kaylee Zichy (Jonathan), Christian Young (Kaitlyn), Rachel Shepeluk (Cody) and great-grandchildren: Madison, Gabriella, and Isabella Matos.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
