Vincent Estrada

November 3, 1957October 6, 2020

With deepest sorrow, we announce that Vincent Estrada (Viney), age 62 our most beloved son, brother, family member and friend passed on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 while in the hospital.

Vincent was born November 3, 1957 in Fort Worth, Texas. Those who knew Vincent, even if it were for a short time, lost a shining light in their lives. He never met a stranger, and would never hesitate to give a helping hand. He was bigger than life and enjoyed weekends simply hanging with family and friends.

Most of all, he loved and adored his mom, she was everything to him. After moving to California and building a career, Vincent finally found his way back to Texas. The last eleven years of his life were spent helping his mom after the passing of our dad, and building great new friendships.

Vincent will be missed everyday by his mom, Mary Estrada, sisters Rosa Ozuna, Alice Serrano, and husband Gilbert, Kenna Johnston, and husband Scott, Helen Estrada, Thersa Estrada, Anna Serrano, his brothers Michael Estrada and wife Grace, Sammy Estrada his loving Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins and many great friends.

We know Vincent will be met in heaven by his dad, grandparents and a few other family members and is loved here on earth as well as in heaven.

Vincent will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Funeral Services will be held at St. Vincent De Paul on Saturday, October 17, at 10:00 am.

Interment will not be immediately following. Please join us on Wednesday, October 21, at 3:00 PM as we lay Vincent to rest at DFW National Cemetery.

I first met Vinnie at St. Vincent's in S. Arlington about 10 years ago when he'd be with his Mom Mary at 9 am Mass.
They always sat 3 rows behind me every Sunday (as we're all creatures of habit).

We'd always chat before Mass about the past or upcoming week, sports, and life in general, or a Casino Run they'd just made!
I always looked forward to seeing him and having a few laughs.

I miss him and love him and know that Heaven just got a big Redskin and Dodger fan.

God Bless and Love to Mary and the entire family and his many friends.
A great man taken way too soon.
Cheers Vinnie!

I just want you to know,
You meant the world to me. Only a heart as dear as yours would give so unselfishly. The many things you did for me durning my battle with cancer. All the times that you were there, helps me know deep down how much you really cared. Even though I might not have said it enough. I really appreciate all you did. "Chente" I was richly blessed to have felt the love of a brother just like you.
Not a day will goes by that I don't think about you. Never a good-bye simply a
"10-4" till we talk again one day.
I love you and thank you for all you did for mom. "Dangerrr" your brother Michael.

I know your my angel watching over me.

As I'm writing this memory of my big brother who was taken too soon, the overwhelming emotions are at times too much to bear. Remembering the days when we were just kids and our journey to adulthood, this loving, caring and very funny guy with the biggest heart was a true godsend! So many wonderful memories of his life with family and friends! Tears stream down my face as I remember you, and your life here with us. An occasional smile comes acoss my facae as I can hear you say a few of your funny and quirky sayings; "10-4" oh, and "danger." Gosh... it's going to be tough without you here, but I thank God for giving me such a beautiful brother who leaves us with such wonderful memories.

Chente' I'm so sad and heartbroken that you're gone - I love you and will miss you dearly.

Vincent was a kind and generous man. We met at Champion in the early eighties, hit it off immediately and a new friendship emersed. Vincent introduced me to his family, then I became part of the family by marring his sister,Kenna.

To know Vincent was to love this man! During the time Vincent lived in California, we lived next door to his parents for 8 years, and during this time "I" proabley got to know about 3 people in the neighborhood. To give you an idea of how big of a personality Vincent had, when he moved back to Texas to take care of his mom, after his dad's passing, it wasn’t a month before everyone in the neighborhood knew "Vinnie!" He became good friends with Roger (next door bestie who purchased our home), and these two became inseperable. People from all over the neighborhood would stop by the garage to hang out and have a brewski, or two with Vincent and Roger, and eventually it became a weekend thing. Vincent’s smile was infectious and always welcoming. If a person was out on a nightly walk, Vincent would tell them “Hey slow down, you’re going to get a ticket” or of course, one of his favorite sayings “Danger!”

I will never forget you my friend. You will will be dearly missed by everyone who knew and loved you.

So many good memories with you from childhood to adulthood! You were the best brother I could ever ask for! I still have your last message that reads “the doctor said I’ll be home soon, keep it a secret” Ohh Chente you have no idea how much I wish that would’ve been true but God had bigger plans for you! I love you & miss you so much! (Dangerrr)
R.I.P. my brother🙏❤️


I was cute then, handsome in my days and now I'm an angel in heaven.
