Screen_Shot_2015-05-11_at_8.26.36_PMLast week Wednesday, Orange Walk Town lost a former soldier and Mayor with the passing of Ignacio Federico Vega. Don Nacho, as affectionately known by many, served as a soldier of Belize in 1942. Vega’s most significant contribution was when he served for three consecutive terms as Mayor of Orange Walk Town.

 

During his career, Vega was also awarded by the royal Queen for the most excellent honour of the British Empire in the form of a gold medal. Vega had been fighting illness for quite some time; he was 93 at the hour of his death. Vega’s farewell was held over the weekend and we wish to extend our sympathies to the Vega family, especially his wife Leonine Vega.
