CRUZ, Sixto, age 73, of Ecorse, Passed away Tuesday February 20, 2024.   
Beloved husband of 54 yrs to Rosemary.   Loving father to Erma M. (Sergio) Garcia, Michelle (Edward) Angiano and the late Alfonso Cruz.  Dearest grandfather of Erica, Alexis, Jazzanaya, Alejandro, Ja’sion, Tayvia, Estevan and Amelia and Great-grandfather of Emmanuel, Elicio, Elizandro and Enzo.  Dear son of Efigenia Castro Cruz and the late Pedro Cruz-Diaz.  He is also survived by his sister Blanca “Iris” Cruz, Many nieces, nephews and cousins that he truly adored.  
He is preceded in death by his father, Pedro Cruz-Diaz, his son Alfonso Cruz and his siblings Carlos Cruz, Hector Cruz, Yolanda Cruz-Taylor and Pedro Cruz Jr.
Sixto was an energetic, kind and playful soul, who enjoyed the company of family and friends whenever possible.  He cherished his relationship with his parents.   He was Rosemary's right hand, a superhero to his children and grandchildren.  He honed in on the title of "Great"-grandfather.  He was always here help…whether we needed it or not.  He enjoyed working on cars, yard work, dominos and telling stories of life in Puerto Rico and childhood experiences.   Sixto "Lolo" is forever in our hearts.
