Guillermo Caballero

Guillermo “Chilly” Caballero Jr., 59, of Fayetteville NC, passed away Sunday, May 24th, 2020.

He was born on July 26th, 1960 in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, to the late Euricide Quiñones and Guillermo Caballero Sr, and later raised in New York City, NY, before finally settling down in Fayetteville, NC. His love for the latest tech gadgets/gizmos, comedy movies/tv shows, video games, and fashion, was second only to his unwavering love for family. His sense of humor, friendly demeanor, and non-judgmental nature made him someone you could confide in and trust. Most of all, as a person afflicted for years with chronic illnesses, Caballero was a fighter, and his example of staying strong and optimistic in the face of adversity is his greatest legacy.

He is survived by his wife Migdalia Caballero, son William David Caballero,  siblings Sammy Caballero, Luis Caballero, Evelyn Caballero, Evette Rodriguez, Ivan Rodriguez, Hermiño Rodriguez, Leticia Rodriguez, Ruthie Caballero, Mimi Caballero, mother-in-law Isolina Aponte, and step-mother Emerita Caballero. He was loved by many, including three sister-in-laws, three brother-in-laws, and countless loving nieces and nephews.

A family visitation is scheduled for Thursday May 28, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at McNeill Mackie Funeral Home of St. Pauls. A grave side funeral service will be held Friday May 29, 2020 at 12:00 noon at Oak Ridge Cemetery in St. Pauls. Arrangements by McNeill Mackie Funeral Home of St. Pauls.

I was lucky to meet Guillermo at his son Wills wedding in Puerto Rico. I remember after the wedding our entourage made its way to a salsa bar. I sat with Guillermo and we talked about all kinds of things including religion, music art and so much more. He was very kind to me and I had the feeling I was talking to an old friend. It was a truly beautiful night as our entourage made its way around the streets of Old San Juan. We were all very happy, some of us were struggling to smoke cigars and there were lots of jokes being cracked. Of course Guillermo was cracking us all up that night.

Death is apart of lifes passage and knowing that its hard to accept. I pray for the comfort of the love ones of Chilly. Chilly had the biggest heart. He always had a peaceful aura within him. May his spirit leave through everyone that loved him. Love you Unko Chilly

Uncle chilly, I know youre in less pain and not suffering anymore but youll still be missed.you fought as hard and as long as you could, trust me most people wouldnt have the fight in them that you had. You truly encompass what it means to be an uncle, a father and husband. Thank you for being my uncle love you dance and play your music for the angels and give God one of the cool ass bracalets you make along with a mixed cd!
