Abraham Santiago was born on March 25, 1945 in Utuado, Puerto Rico.
After moving to Newark at age 19 he worked as a talented hair stylist
and eventually opened his own barber shop in Irvington, NJ for many years.
He was a great person, caring, generous and a hard worker.
He took a chance on people and loved helping those in need.
He loved a nice game of pool and really enjoyed good music, great company, classic cars,
nice tailored pants and perfectly pressed shirts.
Abraham was the beloved husband to Minerva Santiago for 64 years,
the loving father to Diana, Abraham Jr., and Erik Santiago.
Caring grandfather, great grandfather and a trusted and devoted friend to many.
We will forever miss you, until we meet again.
Rest in paradise.
