My Cousin Henry would energize a room of people just by walking in. With his booming voice and laughter, we knew HE had arrived!!
His intellect and memory amazed us all. He dedicated much of his later years to extensive genealogical research and investigative study of his family history. Thankfully, we shared much of the same lineage. He loved music, books, and classic movies. Most of all he was devoted to the Catholic Church and to Joyce, his lovely and loving wife. Family was important to him, whether it be past, present, or future. I thank God that I was one of the lucky ones who loved and WAS loved by Henry. My husband, Dwight, and I send our condolences to the extended Loza-Marquez family members. God Bless and keep you in the palm of His Hand. Allene Thompson
