Farewell to Alberto “Pancho” Motta
It is with profound sadness and immense shock that we confirm the news that Alberto “Pancho” Motta, Jr., Director of Motta Internacional, passed away this morning at his home in Panama.
Many of us in the industry spent the last week with Pancho in Orlando at the Duty Free Show of the Americas. Pancho, who has been president of show organizer the International Association of Airport Duty Free stores for more than a decade, looked well and seemed to be in high spirits.
The funeral will be held in Panama City, Panama tomorrow, Tuesday April 12, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Cathedral at 11am.
TMI and the Pasternak family add our deepest condolences to those in the industry, to his wife Loraine and her children and grandchildren, and to all who knew and loved Pancho. May he Rest in Peace.
