Marilyn Esperante Figueredo, RIP

It is with great sadness that I announce that Marilyn Esperante Figueredo, one of the founders and owners of Cigar City Magazine, passed away yesterday in Atlanta while visiting family.

Marilyn was so full of life, and helped so much with Cigar City Chronicles from the very beginning. She will be missed by so many in this community. She was a true activist and leader in keeping the legacy of Ybor City and the Cigar industry alive.

Tonight’s performance of Cigar City Chronicles will be dedicated in her honor!! Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers.

- Rick C.
