Jose "Roy" Valencia, 57, resident of Las Vegas, N.M. was called home on Nov. 3, 2018, at home surrounded by his family. Roy was born on Feb. 27, 1961, to the late Rogelio and Eulalia Valencia.
Roy graduated from Robertson High School in 1977 and continued on to get his certificate in mechanics, which was always more of a passion than a profession. He had a love for classic vehicles.
Roy was a free spirit with a heart of gold. He enjoyed the simple things in life such as camping, taking walks with his grandkids, cooking for family and friends and entertaining our family pets. He is forever loved and will be greatly missed.
Roy is survived by his three children: Valerie Valencia (Angelica), Lynnsey Vigil (Alyassea) and Jacob Valencia; mother of his children/special friend Anna Jean Garcia; grandchildren Deanna Hern (Jeff), Jordan Archuleta, Camron Lopez, Collin Lopez and Jovan Lujan; sister Frances Fresquez (Alan); nieces: Sharen Maldonado (Angelo), Darlene Encinias (Margarito) and Janet Madrid; special friends Antonio Larranga, Carl Larranga and Rita Gentry and numerous great nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and extended family.
A rosary will be recited Friday, Nov. 9, 2018 at 9 a.m. at Immaculate Conception Church in Las Vegas. A funeral Service will follow the rosary, with Father George V. Salazar as celebrant. Interment will follow in San Isidro, N.M.
