Ventura Vasquez Jr. was born on December 11, 1952 in Lubbock to Ventura Sr. and Olivia Vasquez. He was lovingly raised by Patsy Brito. Ventura proudly served his country in the United State Marine Corp. and married Rose Mary Urenda on November 5, 1974 in Canyon. He worked as a fisherman on the shrimp boats, but he was really a "jack of all trades". He loved to travel the world and especially loved the beaches of Galveston and Long Beach, CA. He was a larger than life man who loved to tell stories and there was never a dull moment when you were around him. He was a huge Dallas Cowboy fan but his real love was for his girls and his family and spending time with them.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his wife, Rose Mary; two daughters, Jessica Ann Losure and husband Kenneth Ray and Dominique Joy Vasquez; a brother, Robert Leroy Crabb; five sisters, Leticia Vasquez Martinez, Norma Jean Chadis, Debbie Lee Crabb, Priscilla Flores and Abby Lee Crabb; four grandchildren, Austyn Morales,
Tenorio, Paloma Soliz and Gloria Bliss"Wolfy" Lovato and a special cousin, Sylvia Castillo.
