Joseph Vincent Herrera Obituary
Herrera, Joseph Vincent

Joseph Vincent Herrera, 68, a life-long south valley resident of Albuquerque, NM, passed away Monday, April 11, 2016. AKA "Flash" he was a professional truck driver for his entire career. Upon retirement he assisted in various positions with the Herrera Bus Company.

Vincent was a proud owner of various classic vehicles including a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner, 1955 Buick Special and a 1958 Chevy pick-up truck. Just like his nick name "Flash" he had a quick wit and could debate on any subject with anyone. He was a compassionate soul that would literally give the shirt off his back. Channel 4's news reporter Caleb James experienced that part of Vincent as a complete stranger; Vincent offered to share his lunch with him. Vincent was a kid at heart. He loved animals and enjoyed many of the older Looney Tune cartoons.

Above all, Vincent received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He will be missed by everyone he touched.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Joseph Anthony Herrera. Vincent is survived by his parents, Joe and Dulcelina Herrera; his son, Delbert Herrera and his wife Laura; his daughter, Yvette Padilla and her husband Michael; his brothers, Phillip, Ernest and his wife Judy, and Danny Herrera; his sisters, Phyllis Herrera, Karen Martinez and husband Raul. He is also survived by numerous grandchildren, nephews, nieces, as well as other family members and friends who loved and will miss him.

A Memorial Service will be held at Calvary Chapel Southwest, 1720 Bridge Blvd. S.W, Albuquerque, NM 87105 on Thursday, April 14, 2016 beginning at 10:00 a.m., with Brother Ted Trujillo officiating.
