Tribute

Guillermo Vasquez, 81, of Lawrence, MA, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on December 24, 2021. Born on September 22, 1940, he was the son of the late Isaac Vasquez and Vincenta Vasquez.
 
Guillermo was a loving husband, father and grandfather. One of his proudest moments was when he served in the Peruvian Navy and upon his departure from the Navy he became a part of the Merchant Marines where he proudly served. 
 
He loved his family and enjoyed many summers around the pool serving BBQ to all of his family and friends. He greeted everyone with a cold beverage and a huge smile. In his spare time he enjoyed playing dominoes and watching all of his favorite New England sports teams. Most of all he was known for his presence at Market Basket, for thirty plus years, where he was friendly with so many of the customers, they all treated him like family. 
 
He is survived by his loving wife Yomara (Paredes) Vasquez, who shared 52 years of marriage with him; his sons William Vasquez and his wife Lora of Andover, MA, John Vasquez and his wife Julia of Haverhill, MA and his daughter Diana Rose of Candia, NH; his two grandsons Joshua and Noah, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. 
 
He was predeceased by his daughter, Rosemary Vasquez.
