In 2014, at age 41, Dr. Cesar left us and went to be with the Lord.  Dr. Cesar was a loving and devoted husband, father, son, friend, and physician to many.  Dr. Cesar was a childhood friend of Dr.  Serge Geffrard. The two of them attended Bethel Evangelical Baptist Church in Fort Lauderdale.  Dr. Geffrard served as mentor to Dr. Cesar during  medical school and residency.
