Julio Cesar Beaton Sr.
March 29, 1934 - November 9, 2023

Dr. Julio Cesar Beaton, Sr., (89), of Pembroke Pines, FL, passed away peacefully on November 9, 2023, in Tampa, FL, surrounded by his loving family. Julio was born March 29, 1934, in Santiago, Cuba, the son of Dr. Julio Beaton and Dr. Mercedes Fonseca. After graduating from the University of Havana with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, he returned to Santiago, where he met his wife, Ada, whom he affectionally called “Adita”. He owned a thriving veterinary practice while also managing one of the family’s dairy farms. As communism took over Cuba, he made one of the most important decisions of his life. In 1967, he along with his family emigrated to the United States, eventually settling in Hattiesburg, MS. He was employed as a Veterinarian for the United States Department of Agriculture, retiring in 1995 at the age of 61. After retirement, he moved to South Florida so that they could be closer to family and friends. He and Ada traveled extensively and enjoyed spending time with their children and grandchildren. He had recently moved to Land O Lakes to be closer to his daughter Ada and her family. He lived a full life attending many reunions, vacationing with family, singing in his church choir, and dancing to his favorite Cuban music as a member of a Santiago de Cuba social club in Miami, FL. He was loved and admired by all who knew him, and his sense of humor will never be forgotten. Julio is survived by his sons, Julio C. Beaton, Jr., Jose (Michelle) Beaton, daughter Ada (Brad) Owens, seven grandchildren, and two great-granddaughters. He was preceded in death by Ada, his wife of 39 years. 

In lieu of funeral services, the family will host a Celebration of Life in his honor on March 10, 2024, in Tampa, Florida.
