Hector went to school at the Instituto de Nacional in Panama. After school, he opened a restaurant business, "Café Don Taxs", before emigrating to the United States to reunite with his future wife Elvira (Lesma). Hector and Lesma were married in 1962. They first settled in Brooklyn before moving to Queens Village, NY with their three children, Hector Jr., Louis and Bianca.

Hector went to work as a Master Electrician while completing classes at Brooklyn Technical School. He then worked for the MTA for many years as a Road Car Inspector. He loved his work and could be found using his free time to do electrical and construction work in various types of buildings. He also loved to beautify his home and the neighborhood with flowers and trees.

Everyone who knew Hector knew about his love of horses. From the age of 3 he was involved with the race track. He could not be a jockey, but he spent many hours around them and his beloved horses.

Hector was a family man who loved life. He had a glowing smile and an infectious laugh. He leaves behind his wife, children, grandchildren, godchildren and other family members. He will be sorely missed.
