As a very cheerful and above all generous person. That is how Brenda Nicola, ex-wife of the Argentinean communicator Carlos Alberto Vicente, remembers him, who passed away on the afternoon of this Tuesday, July 2, at the age of 77, after battling the ravages of lung cancer. The remains of the renowned television host and presenter are being watched over since 1:30 p.m. today, Wednesday, July 3, at Jardines de Esperanza.

The funeral honors of the well-known talent of TC Television The funeral was scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m., as scheduled for the day of the cemetery. At that time, Vicente’s friends and family began to arrive punctually. Among the first to arrive were his son Gianfranco, 29 years old (who is his spitting image); the actor and presenter Francisco Pinoargotti and, of course, his wife of six years. During the day, the journalist and businesswoman Mariela Viteri also arrived.

“I never really let him go, we always had an excellent relationship,” Nicola recalled to this newspaper and said that Vicente had been suffering from the condition since he was very young, due to his affinity for cigarettes. “I do want to make this public, because it will be useful to someone: cigarettes kill people. He continued smoking, he never stopped smoking and he even said a very famous phrase: ‘I will die with a cigarette in my hand, like León died in February.’”

Brenda Nicola also took the opportunity to emphasize that she and her son are very grateful to enjoy their last years under the same roof, despite their divorce. “It was very nice to have him at home. We took care of him. He recovered from cancer, which he also had in 2018, and he underwent 12 chemotherapy sessions. We were with him. We always bathed him and took care of him, and he survived that cancer, but he continued smoking, so he got a really bad case of pneumonia and died from cardiac arrest.”

The nicest thing she remembers about her ex-husband, she adds, is that in the midst of these battles for his health, he never lost his sense of humor or his ability to be generous and humble. “He was filled with joy when he went out into the street and people continued to remember him, greeting him and hugging him. He helped many people who asked him for money out of necessity, when he went out into the street to have a coffee… It was very satisfying for us when one day a lady told him: ‘Carlitos, thanks to you giving me those dollars I opened a bakery.’ Today she is famous, he put his hand in his pocket, gave her what he had, we don’t know how much he gave her, but that’s how he was.”

Carlos Alberto Vicente’s final resting place will be after his remains are cremated. “His wish was to be cremated, because he suffered from claustrophobia. He never wanted to be locked up anywhere. He told us that half (of his ashes) should stay with us and the other half should be scattered on the beach, because he always loved the sea,” said the woman, recalling that among the presenter’s favorite beaches were Salinas and Esmeraldas.
