Secundino Viana-Aponte, 70, of Lebanon, passed away on Monday, March 9, 2020 at Wellspan Good Samaritan Hospital. He was the husband of Maria T. Saez. Born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico on June 17, 1949, he was the son of the late Secundino Viana and Consuelo Aponte.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by four children – Alexis Viana-Saez and his wife Maria L. Viana, Geannette Viana-Saez and her husband Juan C. Cotto, Wilmer Viana-Saez, and Alexis Daniel Viana-Gonzalez; two great grandchildren – Ethan D. Viana and Josuel A. Skinner; and several nieces and nephews.
