Victor Quiroga Obituary
VICTOR WALTER QUIROGA Nov. 11, 1963 ~ April 5, 2010 Passed away early in the morning on the 5th of April, 2010 from complications after a long battle with brain cancer. He leaves behind his wife, Karla; sons, Joshua Anthony, Seth Justis and Jared Tyler; his parents, Victor and Maria Quiroga; his sisters, Mirta Silvia Braniff, Lillian Nancy Reed, and Stella Maris Matallana; six brothers-in-law, three sisters-in-law, twenty nieces and nephews and a myriad of "adopted" children who love him deeply. Victor was born in Oklahoma on November 22, 1963, the 5th child and only boy. The family moved back to their Native Argentina, when Victor was 2 years old, for about 5 years before moving back to Oklahoma. At the age of 12, Victor became a member of the Civil Air Patrol which started his love of the military. After graduating from high school, Victor married Karla and joined the Navy. He intended to become an aviation mechanic but soon found his true calling in the military police. He served as a military working dog handle, Master at Arms aboard the USS Cayuga, and Chief of Police at the Navy\'s San Clemente Island. He spent 14 years on active duty while raising his three sons and traveling around the world then transferred to the Reserves so that he could pursue another dream. He achieved the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer and retired after 24 years of service. In 1997, Victor was accepted into the academy for the California Highway Patrol. He became a traffic officer in both East Los Angeles and San Bernardino where he remained until his death. Victor loved his families, his relatives, his Navy and his CHP brothers and sisters. He also loved "his" Oakland Raiders and his Oklahoma Sooners. He touched so many lives because of his ability to be sincere but firm, and yet kind and gentle.
