In loving memory of George Roque Tapia Jr. went home to be with his

Roque was fun loving, outgoing, strong as a bull, give you the shirt
off his back, contagious laugh, contagious smile, dart player,
hardworking, funny, soft hearted, a fighter, a father, a brother, a
son, an uncle, a grandpa, a great cook, a friend, loved by many and
a child of God. He could walk into a room and bring it to life with
his outgoing personality and his crazy loud laugh. He knew and
talked to everyone. He was loved by many and was generous to all. He
seemed like a macho guy but really was a soft-hearted man. His
mother was his main cheerleader and adored him greatly. He loved her
with all his heart and I am glad they are reunited.

There will be a small service at the cemetery in the columbarium
area on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at 11 a.m.
