Fernando Caballero was born in Havana, Cuba, and moved with his family to Miami, Florida, when he was three years old. He attended St. Brendan, Belen Jesuit and was graduated from Coral Park High School in 1976. He attended the Miami Dade College School of Funeral Services and earned his funeral service degree in 1981. He began working with his father, Federico “Monin” Caballero, at Caballero Funeral Home at an early age and went to work for him full time after being licensed as a Funeral Director in 1982. Fernando’s desire was to continue his father’s legacy, so he purchased the original building to reestablish the Caballero family tradition, and opened Ferdinand Funeral Homes & Crematory in 2002.
Fernando is a member of the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA), National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Florida Funeral Directors Association (FFDA) and Cremation Association of North America (CANA). He is also a member of the Key Biscayne Yacht Club (KBYC) and the Kiwanis Club, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
