He always thought of others first and put himself at the last for everything. His family meant everything to him. All who knew him will remember him as a kind and loving soul who always made jokes to everyone to put a smile on their face. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren in the mountains far away from the city, relaxing and talking to everyone around him, waiting for the big fish or double fish to hit his line. Then he would holler at one of us to help him so he would not lose his catch. His eyes would light up when he saw the catch on his line. Then he would go home and brag about the fishing trip Love from his family. He is survived by his son, Vince E. Velasquez and step daughter, Jennie Montoya. Sisters, Carmen Corona, Martha, and Maria, several nieces and nephews; grandchildren, Chantel Trujillo, Jose Suarez, Matthew Montoya; and great grandchildren, Nevaeh Galvan, Xylus Montoya, and D’Angelo Trujillo Hernandez Gonzales.
