In loving memory of

Cesar Confesor Bidó

“El Gran Bidó”

March 26, 1955 - September 07, 2023

Cesar Confesor Bidó was born on the 26th of March 1955 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

to parents Confesor Bidó and Dinorah Estecumber. As a young man he came to the United States

and was among some of the first Dominican families in the North Ward in the City of Newark. He

graduated from Barringer High School and entered the United States Army. He left the armed

forces and went on to become Union President of Faber Castell Factory in Newark, NJ. Cesar was a

master craftsman and an Industrial Mechanic for Bombardier. He was the definition of a “True

Mechanic” as in the dead of winter he would throw himself on the ground, scoot under the hood

and start breaking down an entire engine.

If you had the opportunity to be in his presence, you would walk away with some of the best

stories and wisdom you have ever heard in your life. He would give you advice that initially spoke

to compromise and ended with a look into your eyes and a finger saying, “Live in peace but always

be ready for war.” He was always ready for war if there was any intent to harm his family. As he

would make a seriousface and say,

“Yo soy un tiguere ácido!”

He showed us our cultural roots through Siboney and Santa Marta La Dominadora. He would tell

us to never forget our roots as this knowledge and tradition was passed down by his father Pason.

You could ask him about any culture, political movement, tradition and without looking it up you

were schooled on an array of topics. Cesar was a man that would say “if you see a need no one has

to ask you for help, fulfill the need”. He loved to smoke Newports and tap the pack down on the

palm of his hands. Anytime you called with a concern or a story he would say “Esperate dejame

prender”. He had no problem roasting you the second you were in his presence which would make

you laugh because you knew it was coming by the smirk on his face. By the time it was over you

had a new nickname. Known as

“El Gran Bidó”. Women around the world loved his smile and his charm. Many people

looked up to him as a father figure within the community and soon as they would see him on

Hawthorne Ave. they would yell “Ceeeeeeeeee’s” and run towards him. He loved the lake, the beach

(Daytona Beach especially), road trips, being with his family in the Cherry Blossom section of

Branch Brook Park and Liberty State Park watching the boats on the water. He loved wearing

baseball caps wherever he went and would make sure his collar was fixed at all times just in case

you were taking a picture. He loved Dominican cigars, drinking Mamajuana, Black Label, and

listening to hisfavorite songs.

As a friend you could count on him to be there for you. As a grandfather he was unmatched as he

would lift you up in the air like a bird flying in the sky. As a father there are no words to describe

the life changing impact he had on his children as he is the reason they are who they have become

He was asked… “What isthis world without “El Gran Bido”?

To this he replied…


’t worry I am here to stay, and I am not going nowhere. They are going to have to come down

and come get me because I’

m not leaving without a fight. In heaven they should really think

about who they are trying to take. Read my lips

“I am not going!” I will enter the body of a

newborn baby and here I will remain.”

Cesar Confesor Bidó… We love you and happily await your return.
