Ottmar Ponce 6-20-1964-2/5/2021
Ottmar went to heaven to be with his parents, Angelita Crespo and Ottmar Ponce Sr. and his brothers, Freddy, Jose and William Morales.
He leaves behind his significant other, Sandra Gates of 22 years, his brothers, Louie Morales, David Morales, Michael Morales and Joe Morales.
He also leaves his children, Vanessa Ponce, Adam Ponce, Catherine Ponce and Sergio Ponce along with many nieces, nephews and cousins. Ottmar loved his family and friends dearly and never met a stranger. Cousin Angel Kuilan from New York, Photo Morales, Michael Morales, Jr., David Turner and Reza Ray, his loving friend and great positive story teller. Full of laughter and inspiration. For that we will never forget.
He was born in Jersey City, New Jersey and spent his early childhood in New York. Around ten years old, his family moved to Holyoke, MA.. In 2011 he moved to Daytona Beach, Florida with Sandy, his significant other.
He loved going for rides on the beach and around Florida. He loved watching animal farms and laughed like crazy when we got our first senior discount.
He battled cancer like a trooper for four years, and tried to listen to his brother Joe’s story, who use to box. Joe and Roseann would tell us when you’re in the ring the idea is not to get hit by the punches…..and that’s how he dealt with his cancer.
Finally, Ottmar called Captain Pipo on Playstation game. His friends for years were great strength for him. Bryan Foster, Clarence Taylor, rotten one. On socom. staying up all night and having a great time. Also Tara, a great friend in God…helping us to keep smiling.
He loved to be busy and had many jobs but loved masonry and construction the best.
I am the luckiest woman in the world to have been blessed by God for him to be my partner… protector…love of my life. Who he always said to me he loved me to the moon and back . I will forever miss him until it’s my turn to go to heaven and be with him.
He loved all sports but mainly the New York Yankees and Patriots. He told me he will miss calling his brother David…hooting and hollering about the game.
I will see you when the good Lord lets me see you again. Save a seat for me. I pray you are free of pain. Walking and talking and eating. Love you to the moon and back.
