Edelmiro “Junior” Ferrer-Ortiz, Jr., 67

September 17, 2020

Edelmiro “Junior” Ferrer-Ortiz, Jr., 67, of Lancaster, passed away unexpectedly at his home on September 17, 2020. Born in Santa Isabel, Puerto Rico, he was the son of Carmen Esther Ortiz and the late Edelmiro Ferrer, Sr. He was also the loving husband of Libertad Ferrer for the past 47 years. He was also famously known as Panin.

Junior frequently found himself visiting flea markets and thrift shops. He was always on the hunt for the best deal. When he would buy something, more likely than not, it was for someone else. His greatest joy in life was bringing a smile and happiness to others. He considered himself an all year Santa Claus and the only reason he needed to give a gift was to brighten someone’s day.

He will be sorely missed by his wife Libertad, sons; Edward Ortiz, Edelmiro Ferrer III, and Carlos Ferrer, a daughters; Leslie Suarez and Madeline Ferrer, grandchildren; Jonathan, Mercedes, Brooke, Joshua, Ebashaneice, Abigail “Abby”, Jesayla, Josiah, Cassidy, Libertad, Deja, Calvin, Essence, Elliot, Heriberto, Eddiezayah and Eli, sisters; Eleanor and Doris Ferrer, and a brother, Orlando Ferrer, as well as numerous great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in passing by his father Edelmiro Sr., and a brother, Juan Bautista Ferrer.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, September 25, 2020 at 12PM at the Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, 414 E. King St. Lancaster, PA 17602. A viewing will be held from 11AM-12PM. Interment will take place at Mellinger Mennonite Cemetery.

Elle and family
My heart is sadden by the news of Junior’s transitioning. We met only once but He left a lasting memory. He however has gone before and will carve out out a place in Heaven so that one day he will blissfully meet up, with loved ones, again. For now, I know that the grief is heavy and hearts are broken but take solice in loving memories of him, that they may comfort and lift your spirits. You have my deepest condolences.
Lovingly
