Javier S. Vasquez

Javier Soto Vasquez, of Portland, Texas, passed away on Friday, November 12, 2021. He went peacefully surrounded by family and love.

Javier was an avid fisherman. He most enjoyed spending time with his family and friends which were filled with laughter and good music, as he always wanted to be the DJ.
