Obituary for Juan Miguel Acosta

Juan Miguel Acosta, 89, of New Castle, went to be with the lord on February 18th, 2019. He was born on October 20, 1929 in Matanzas, Cuba. He, his wife, and his daughter came to the US on April 13, 1971. Juan saw a lot during his life. He was a small business owner in Havana before communism began in ‘59
and spent 3 years in a Cuban work camp to earn his family’s chance to emigrate. An exceptionally hard worker, he was a retiree of both the New Castle Chrysler plant and the State Highway sign crew. He was an avid gardener, farmer, guitar player, and do-it-yourself-er. But most of all, he was a strong Christian and the beloved patriarch of his family. Juan was preceded in death by his parents, several siblings, and many more relatives left behind in Cuba. Left to cherish his loving memory, his wife of nearly 64 years whom he married May 22, 1955, Georgina; daughter Barbara Sorrell; grandchildren Daniela Smith (Jacob), Ephraim Sorrell, and Gabi Sorrell;  and great-granddaughters Emmanuelle and Adeline Smith. He will be terribly missed on this Earth, and the family anticipates a wonderful reunion in Heaven. Visitation will be held on Saturday, February 23 in New Castle at 2701 N Memorial Dr (Memorial Wesleyan Church) from 1 to 3 p.m., with service immediately after the visitation. Burial will follow at Green Hills Memory Gardens in New Castle. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to Feed the Children or  Samaritan’s Purse. Arrangements are being handled by the funeral directors at Macer-Hall Funeral Home.
