Joseph Robert Marquez blessed this earth for 71 years. He was born on December 26, 1951, in Casa Colorada, New Mexico to Juan Jose and Maria Anunsa Marquez. Now taken by God on May 8, 2023, at his home in Casper, Wyoming.
Robert is survived by his wife, Mary Marquez, and his son, Juan Jose Marquez II. Also, by his many grandchildren and his great grandson, Zayden Marquez.
Robert was a devoted husband and a man of many accomplishments. He was most proud of serving the United States Marine Corps. He loved to hunt and go fishing and was extremely talented at shooting darts. Robert was also a loyal Gold Legacy member of the VFW Post 9439.
Robert and Mary experienced life as one and had opportunities to see and live in many cities and states of this great country, memories he was able to take with him.
Robert was diagnosed with neuropathy and diabetes in 2014, then kidney disease a year and a half ago. Knowing eventually this would be what would take him, he lived everyday to the fullest, no regrets.
Roberts final days were spent with his loving wife Mary by his side and his son Juan. He is at peace now and has gifted us a full heart to share.
There will be a time of visitation on Monday, May 22, 2023 from 12 pm to 1 pm at Bustard and Jacoby Funeral Home, followed by a Memorial Service at 1 pm. Military Honors will be held at Oregon Trail Veterans Cemetery immediately following the service.
