During these very trying times we at Donohue Cecere Funeral Home want to assure you that we have taken every precaution to provide a safe environment for you and your loved ones. Our location is cleaned and sanitized daily and we continue to follow best practices for social distancing and safety.
In accordance with Executive Order 202.17 (which requires any individual over age two, and able to medically tolerate a face-covering, be required to cover their nose and mouth with a mask or cloth face-covering when in a public place) we are required to follow this mandate or risk being shut down; therefore, all individuals entering our funeral home will be asked to wear a face mask or cloth face covering.
As of the latest update we are able to offer limited visitation periods in the funeral home for family and friends up to 25 people per session. Please be mindful when visiting during these sessions to limit the amount of time spent at the funeral home. This will give the opportunity for other family and friends to visit.
Raymond (Moncho) Calero was born on April 26, 1942 in New York City. Born to parents Monserrate and Oscar. Ray spent his early years living in NYC where he met and later married his high school sweetheart, Roselle Adames, on July 30, 1960. Over the next several years they became the beloved parents of
Irene, Joyce, Dennis and Jeffrey. They were married for 49 years but their loved lasted forever.
Ray worked as a Production Manager at Domino Sugar in Brooklyn, N. Y. for nearly 30 years and never took a single sick day off! In 2001, Ray retired and spent his days surrounded by family and friends. He enjoyed traveling, the Mets, casinos and most of all his love, Rosie, their children and grandchildren.
His family's accomplishments became his accomplishments. And he was a proud papa. He was always
involved in his grandchildren's lives and encouraged them to always work their hardest and do their
best. They made him proud and He made us all better people. He will be deeply missed.
