Rigoberto "Rigo" Contreras, 78, passed away on Sunday, October 6, 2013, at Florida Keys Memorial Hospital. He was born in Tampa, Fla., on January 4, 1935. He lived most of his life in Key West, Fla.

Rigo loved playing the guitar, never meet a stranger he didn't like and lived his life the best way he knew how.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Juan and Isabel Contreras. He is survived by his siblings Juanito and Violita of Santa Clara (Las Villas), Cuba; his children Rigoberto "Rigo," Isabel, Eduardo "Eddie," Davina, Maria, Magdalena, and Elizabeth; 13 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at a later date in Couderay, Wisconsin, where he will be laid to rest.
