The President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, and the Second Secretary of the Central Committee of the Party, José Ramón Machado Ventura attend the funeral of José Ramón Fernández.

Other members of the Political Bureau also pay tribute to the Hero of the Republic of Cuba, whose ashes are exposed in the Pantheon of the Veterans of the Necropolis of Columbus, where they will remain until they are transferred to the Mausoleum of the Second Eastern Front Frank País.

Fernandez from a very young age participated in the revolutionary struggle against Batista’s tyranny in conspiratorial movements with different military and political groups, which is why he kept prison in the Isle of Pines.

At the triumph of the Revolution he joined the Revolutionary Armed Forces, participated in the fight against bandits, and in the direction of the battles in Playa Girón.
