Francisco Vasquez Obituary

On Thursday, January 25, 2024, I parted ways with my beloved husband Francisco Eugeñio Vasquez. Frank and I were high-school sweethearts, we married in 2001 and shared 25 years of marriage. Frank and I built a beautiful home and raised 5 children who we loved as our own. Frank and I had a true love story, we stuck by each other in strength, love and unity. Our hands will no longer touch, our arms will no longer hug our bodies, and the image of his face will only live in the darkness of my eyes. His departure leaves me with much sorrow in my heart.

Francisco is survived by his wife Elma Vasquez, his son Jose Ricardo “Ricky” Torres, his father Ruben Abner Vazquez, his two older brothers Ruben Vazquez Jr., Adan Vazquez and baby sister Nora Perez. 

Frank shared love for his stepmother Alma Vazquez; half siblings, Martha Vazquez, Alma Vazquez, Luis Vazquez and Brenda Vazquez. 

Frank had the blessing of being an uncle. A title he was proud to have to as he truly cherished his nephews and nieces. 

Frank built many friendships throughout his life but some friendships grew into brotherhoods. Frank holds a special bond with his long-time friend and brother from another mother “Andres “Andy” Villa, Tom “Brother” Tarvin.

His wife’s, Mimi’s, family became Frank's family whom they considered a son and a brother, mother-in-law Elma, sisters Rosaura “Rosie”, Claudia “Candy” and Cynthia "Cindy" Villarreal were all part of his extended family. 

With Frank losing his mom at a young age, his aunts filled a big void with much love and care, Tia Pita and Tia Martha.    

Francisco is preceded in death by his beloved mother Sanjuanita Nora Rodriguez, adoring maternal grandparents Francisco and Maria Rodriguez, paternal grandparents Eugenio and Martha Vazquez, close cousin Jorge Armando De Los Santos.

Francisco was born in Laredo, Texas and graduated from J.W. Nixon high school with the class of 1999. Francisco worked many jobs until he attended ITT TECH where he received his knowledge and passion for electronic technology. He graduated from ITT Tech in 2011.  

Frank loved sports! He was a big Houston Texans fan and a UT Longhorns enthusiasts. He served his community by coaching little league baseball and football with the North Austin Optimist. 

Frank enjoyed making “carne asada” for his family and friends. He truly embraced the company of his friends. Frank created many BBQ memories out on the lake and outside his house while also enjoying a game of pool in his garage "his man cave". He absolutely loved being around family and enjoyed each day in the best way he knew how “with a cold can of beer.”

Francisco will be forever remembered by all his family and friends. His memories will carry on in our minds and he will live within each of our hearts until we meet again.  

Rest in peace, Francisco Eugeñio Vasquez.
