Sergio Quiano's journey

Opinion: Letters To The Editor

The recent news of the murder of Sergio Quiano reminded me of an earlier time when I knew him. He worked as a waiter at the old Baker's Square on Harlem. He was energetic, always smiling, humorous, and the best at what he did. After the demise of Baker's Square, I lost track of him. Some years later, I would see him walking in Oak Park. It seemed time had taken a toll on his health — his gait was unsteady and he seemed to have lost his warm smile. I was happy to run into him at Panera a few months ago and we chatted about Baker's Square days. For someone who must have spent his entire adult life in Oak Park, there must be more information about how he lived and those of us who would wish to know and share his journey.

Thank you for creating this thread Bill in memory of Sergio. I got to know Sergio in 2013 when I was 22 years old. I had just moved to Oak Park and didn't really know anyone. Despite our large age difference we became instant friends. Sergio became a mentor for me and showed me how to be a better person. He was a man who always stood for what was right. Every time we would speak on the phone he'd pray for me and tell me not to forget to pray... He was a very trusting and gentle soul. I pray that he found peace as he left this life.
