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"!!!!!!

Oh, and guess what, GREAT NEWS...we're gonna be great-grandparents!!! It's a boy...and you'd be proud of me, I bought him his first Bronco jersey even prior to knowing his gender...discernment!!...LOL!! We're all pretty happy it's a boy...especially Daddy and Mommy. And of course, Grandma, Tami, can't contain this new JOY, JOY, JOY!! Surely we are blessed with such a lovely, lovely family. You're still my "Man of Valor" my love...wished we could share this blessing together.

WOW, another year in glory!! Unbelievable, mi amor. I often think of you and can only wonder what you're doin' today...celebrating your coming home to Jesus...perhaps!! I can only imagine! Still missin' you, baby...always will...at least while I'm down here...but the way things are lookin' down here, don't think it'll be long before we all come home and celebrate together...Jesus is coming soon...can't wait. I love you, baby.

"Pops" What a year it has been, shaping up to be the best year of my life. I am closing today on the purchase of a $150 million dollar company and becoming it's CEO. What's more important then that has been this 9 year journey to recovery from loss of everything. I couldn't have done it without God as the leader of it all. I think the best gift I can give you today is the one promise I will never break and that is to be Godly man who will see you again in heaven one day, I know your looking down and smiling. I Love you old man!! Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday DAD! The last 4 seven years have flown by, but our love and thoughts of you will forever be a part our lives. The song "I can only Imagine" came on the radio this morning while Nicole and I were driving to work and I couldn't help but think it was your way of saying hi to us on your birthday and letting us know that God has allowed you to watch over us! It was an emotional moment for both of us as we talked about all the memories of you and our thoughts for a moment were not about us, but about how you impacted our lives. We will forever miss you and never forget you DAD! Love always.

Good morning mi Amor...feliz cumpleanos, old man! Can't hardly wait to join you...and Jesus. We go to Mesquite next week...something you and I had hoped to do together...oh well, our Lord had other plans for you...we'll wait till I arrive up there...we'll play a round or two...I'll be strong enough then to play 18 holes again...what fun...can't wait. Still missin' you, baby...these days I miss you more...I've come to the conclusion, I'll never stop missin' you. Happy birthday!

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.

Pops, 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!

John, Mike and I extend our sincere condolences to you and your family. 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. Although your hearts are broken, we wish you moments of peace through your love for him and his for you. The bond of love can never be broken. We wish you love and light always.

Rest in Peace! I worked with John's sister Gerri Garcia 30 plus years and she always talked about what hard working and caring person you were. Wonderful family....Prayers for all the family! Norma Maes
