RIP Manuel "Lito" Mercado

Recommended Posts

It is with great sadness that I share that after decades flying kites (or "fishing for angels" like he would say) our dear friend Manuel "Lito" Mercado (known as "chiringaloco" on the forums), passed away on Saturday, January 20.

Lito was a competitive flyer in the 90's and was sponsored by kitemakers like Reed Richards, Guildworks, TC Ultra and others. He was a member of the original Kiteman Productions crew that flew at Epcot and Disney. He was one of the best kitefliers that I've ever known. He was based in Orlando, FL.

We will always remember his smile and the joy he brought to all around him. Lito is now flying with the angels.

Buen viento mi carido amigo!
