Vincent Jose Marquez, 19, was born November 9, 2001 in Farmington, New Mexico to Matthew and Aaryn Marquez. He departed his temporary home to live in his eternal home on Saturday, July 3rd 2021, where he rests peacefully in the arms of the LORD.
Vince is survived by his "bef fen" brothers: Cody Montano (Christine) of Casa Grande, Arizona, Von, Joel, and Gabriel Marquez of Bloomfield, New Mexico.

Vince was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Pete (Jose) Marquez; his aunt Louise Marquez and his uncle Robert (Bobby) Marquez.
He was loved and admired by those who knew him for many things: his winning smile, his athletic ability, his fiery spirit, and his words of encouragement. But most of all he was loved for his tender and generous heart.
Vince graduated from Bloomfield High School in 2020 where he excelled in sports. He was an outstanding football player and received a scholarship from Arizona Christian University.
