Simon Vasquez Jr.|
July 24, 1943- August 23, 2013
Resident of Riverbank
Simon Vasquez Jr, devoted father and grandfather, caring brother, avid golfer and a true gentleman, passed away after a short, but valiant battle against cancer.
Simon was born in El Paso, TX and grew up in Pittsburg, CA. After proudly serving his country, he received his Master's Degree and spent 30 years working for the CCC Probation Dept.
His two daughters and their husbands blessed him with three granddaughters and a grandson. On Thursdays, he and his buddies would tee it up at one of the many local golf courses. He was a 49er faithful and was elated to see his SF Giants win two World Series titles.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the
or to The First Tee.
Services are Monday, Sept. 16 at St. Ignatius of Antioch, with a Celebration of Life ceremony immediately after.
