It is with extremely heavy heart we share the news that John Andrew Vasquez passed last week, as a result of his Parkinson’s disease complications.

Our family asks two things.  First, please pray in earnest for our family that we continue to receive the grace of understanding and strength to overcome our loss.  As all our loved ones are precious to each of us, no matter when or how they are taken, it is difficult to say goodbye.  Secondly, we ask that you not send flowers but consider a small donation of whatever you are capable of offering without sacrifice to your family to the National Parkinson’s Foundation (www.Parkinson.org) “Donate tab” in honor of our Father John Andrew Vasquez.  Our “Pops” donated his body to the furthering for a cure and so we honor his generosity to the end! 

We love you "Honey", "Pops", "Old Man", "Brother", "Grandpa John", "Uncle","cuñado"!!!!!!

"Well, another year has come and gone, My Love, and yet the "new normal" is still difficult without you...don't know if I'll ever have a day that I do not miss you...quite frankly, thought it would be much easier than this...I now realize I was only fooling myself by allowing the latter days of our lives together dictate to me who you (we) were.  I've had much time to reflect on "us" and I sure do miss "us" and know in my heart I always will."

"WOW my Man of Valor...70...you have just joined the ranks de los viejitos!!!  Today marks a special day that reminds us of how much we all miss you everyday.  This world continues to be empty without you and the excitement of walking beside you once again only makes me antsy for that day...I get goosebumps just thinking about that day.  Feliz cumpleanos Mi Amor.  I love you."

We remember you on this day, your Birthday!  Your time away feels like its been so long and we miss you everyday that you have been away.  With the only the thought of seeing you in Haven when we arrive and sit together again.  Te amo mucho!"

The love you share and will continue to share is evident in your words, the pictures of your family, and of a father well loved.
