It is with a broken heart that the family of Alvin (Albert) Vasquez announce that the Lord has called for his son on April 15, 2020, at the age 74, in Universal City, Texas. Alvin was born on September 2, 1945 to Brijida and Bernardino Vasquez in Manhattan, New York. On June 18, 1966 he and his wife Maria were married at St. Cecilia Catholic Church. Alvin enjoyed family time during the holidays and special events the most. He was a businessman and experienced HVAC tradesman Alvin is survived by his loving and devoted wife Maria; daughters, Audrey and Jennifer; son, Alvin Vasquez II; grandchildren, Justin, Stephanie, Melissa, Jonathan and Melanie; brothers, Louie, Joe, Willie and Ray; sisters, Delia and Almida, many relatives, friends and his canine buddy, Madison. My dad was the greatest on this earth. He was a man of little words, but his actions always spoke louder. There is no question that I am just like he was. Like my dad, I don’t say much, but I will do anything for those I love. My dad was very compassionate and no matter who you are, he never said no to anyone in need and always had an answer. He was a devoted husband and father, but cherished all of his five grandchildren. What a great Papa he was. After he retired, he was extremely dedicated to his granddaughter’s as he would pick them up from school, attended all their school and sporting events. My dad was so attentive and catered to my mom with anything she wanted because as the love of his life, he would move mountains for her. He was the best dad, Papa, uncle, brother in-law and without question, the best husband anyone was lucky enough to ask for. It was so touching to us to talk with people who called to issue their condolences, listen to their memories of him and hear them say, “he was the best”. My dad made me laugh and he’s made me cry, but what I am most grateful for is that he made me who I am. I thank God that I was here for him and will always keep the loving memories forever in my heart. I pray that he is now at peace in heaven and is with my grandmother’s and with those we have lost. He was very loving and caring with every conversation always ending with me with “I Love You” and made sure to give a kiss and a hug which I will forever miss. I was fortunate to have him for 50 years and if I could, wish for more. To the greatest dad any daughter could wish for, know that one day we will see each other again to hug and once again say, “I Love You”, and although you have physically departed, I want you to know that I love you to the moon and back. Butterfly Kisses Dad! Until we meet again!

  3. Tio, Thank you for always being a great role model to me of what man should be. I have always admired the way you put GOD first and instilled in everyone you met the importance of family. You will be greatly missed until we meet again. Love you always.

  4. Hello everyone to the family and friends of “Big Al” our Dad. Dad was a character always looking for the good in everything and everyone. Never complained just did what he had to do for his family. Unfortunately for the past few years Alvin and I did not get to spend a lot of time with him. As we are on the east coast and he was in Texas but we were ok with that as he loved Texas. We kepted in touch with pictures and phone calls. In September he was able to see His oldest grandchildren Justin and Stephanie in person and his son Alvin via Google hangout. Unfortunately he did not see His replica my youngest son Jonathan. I know he will live on in Jonathan as they are exactly alike. Jonathan did not get to spend time with Papa but inherited his traits. This I will treasure. Dad was a stubborn guy but with a good heart. We know he is in a better place he was welcomed into heaven by many who love him. Dad look forward to having that beer with you again. Cheers!!! Love you with all my heart 😘 Audrey Lee

  5. Alvin you were always so welcoming! From the first day I met you I was treated like one of the family. You would tell everyone at a family gathering “oh Vic, you haven’t met her, she’s part of the furniture around here” He was always proud of whatever I was getting into. He was a hard worker and always on the move, working on a project, trying to make something better. Providing for his family. He took Gustavo in also just like that. He is so missed and so loved. I will keep all these memories close to my heart. I love you! Love always Vicki, Gustavo, Tomas and Triston Sanchez.

  8. Uncle Albert, It is hard to pinpoint just one memory of you because you have been part of my entire life. I have been so lucky to have you both as an Uncle and as a Godfather. You have shown me the true meaning of family through your actions and have taught me that being a Godparent is much more than just a title. Your unconditional love and support has guided me into the person I am today. I always knew that you were only a phone call away. The dedication and love of your family, the love of all people, and your desire to help and guide, has been an inspiration and an example. You have influenced and impacted not only myself, but so many others. Your hardworking spirit, generous heart, and kind soul, matched with your beautiful smile and love of life will be so greatly missed. I believe that you were here as an angel from God. Now you will watch over us and continue to guide and protect. Hopefully while smiling, laughing, and listening to your music. You will be greatly missed but never forgotten and always loved. Your Goddaughter Kristin

  9. Big Al,”Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as god calls us one by one the chain will link again”. Rest In Peace My Brother, You will forever be in my heart.

  10. I remember a memory with tio and Titi that she asked him to untie her sneakers we were having such a great time laughing that we didn’t notice that tio was burning her shoelaces under the table all we saw was the smoke rising from him burning them. We all laughed so hard that was a great time. Tio I will always remember how funny and loving you were. We haven’t seen or spoke in many years but I loved you all the same as when I was a child. You will never be forgotten and always in our hearts. ❤️🙏🏼

  11. Uncle Albert, you will be missed. You touched all of our hearts. We will always remember the love, laughter and happiness you brought to everyone. You showed by example the true definition of family, we miss you and will never forget you. Love , The Colón Family

  12. Uncle Albert, you loved and protected your nieces and nephews like your own and I am so glad that I was one of them. Although my heart runs heavy, I will never forget when you told me as a young man about to venture into the world; “Kevin, don’t be afraid of what life throws at you, you’re always going to have bills, responsibilities, but most of all..you have your life and all of us to lean on when things get rough, and one day, you will have a beautiful family to go home to”. I just want you to know that your guidance continues to remain steadfast and continues to echo throughout my family. We love you, and I look forward to feeling your warm hugs and everlasting smile when you welcome us home. Rest Uncle, rest.
