Tony Vasquez Death, Obituary – Tony Vasquez has passed away untimely and unexpectedly leaving friends, loved ones, family, and the entire community heartbroken and in grievance, according to a social media sharing. The passing of our beloved friend Tony Vasquez has left us in a state of profound grief. He was an upstanding citizen. He never lost his attitude of readiness and willingness to serve. Even in his latter days, he sought out ways in which he might be of service to others. It was in the city of Fort Worth, Texas, that he was brought into the world by his parents, Antonio Huerta Vasquez and Concepción (Salinas) Vasquez.
The city of Fort Worth’s Trimble Tech High School is where Tony earned his diploma. He wed Maria Lydia De La Cruz, and the two of them were married for a total of 58 years. They had the joy of welcoming five children into the world: three males, and two daughters. After working for General Motors for 30 years, Tony decided to retire earlier than expected at the age of 52. He played golf whenever he could because it was his favorite sport, and he was always trying to get in more rounds. Following his retirement, he worked at the Iron Horse Golf Course as a golf marshal for a number of years.
Every May, he volunteered at the golf tournament held by the Colonial Country Club and recounted many fascinating stories about the various professional players he had the opportunity to meet. While he was sitting on the patio with his family on a pleasant summer evening, he liked to sing along with some of his favorite songs while listening to them. He enjoyed watching sports as well as classic westerns, with Gunsmoke being his absolute favorite. Tony had a passion for exploring new places and during his lifespan he went to a wide variety of unique locations. In addition to being a member of the Knights of Columbus, he was an involved parishioner at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in the area.
He was a man of his word and a man of impeccable moral character. His parents, Antonio Huerta Vasquez and Concepción Salinas Vasquez, passed away before he was born. Tony was named after his late father. He is survived by his wife, Lydia Vasquez; his children, Melissa Webb, Harold Anthony (Tony) Vasquez, Robert Vasquez, David Vasquez, and Patty Beasley and her husband, Bart; his grandchildren, Brittany Brown, Christina and Alyssa Vasquez, Dominick Webb, Brooke, Samuel, and Lilyana Beasley; his great-grandchildren, Mia Vasquez, Aaliyah Smith, and Emery Hartman;
