My condolences to his family, wife and three precious children. My husband and I saw Hector for who he was, a sweet heart! Even if we didn't see each for a while, when we did, it was like we saw each other everyday! I know you are up in heaven smiling down on us while we remember you! RIP bro

I met Hector in passing a few times...he always seemed so happy : ) He had a friendly smile that made me feel welcomed even with just our short conversational exchanges. His lovely wife spoke highly of him and I am sure he is dear to her heart even now...may you rest in peace Hector. My condolences to his wife, children, parents, siblings and all other family and friends...

Hector and I worked at Heat U.S.A. for some time, and he left an impression on everyone who met him. Back then, he was known as the kid with the big heart, and a great sense of humor. I would like to share my condolences to his family and friends. He will truly be missed. May he rest in peace..

Hector, I loved you so very much. In the last 13 years you were a close good buddy that made me laugh everytime. I often quote to others how you called me a New Yorker's New Yorker when I moved here to Vegas so yes you are often on my mind. Even though you are 2 years younger than my sons you were a true, real close friend that I shared everything with, we could talk for hours, I held you dearly in my heart and now I promise to hold Nef and the kids as close as I did you and to be there, if not right next door in NYC right next door with my ear, heart and love. I am heartbroken you are gone, I still don't believe it's true. I am missing you now and will for a long time. Love you so much, my little buddy. May the Lord bless and keep you and your family. I look forward to seeing you again in glory.

I've been hesitating to write in this obituary thinking that with time I would be feeling a little bit better but that's never going to happen. The way we lost you was very unexpected and not being able to hear your voice for a last time, has left us in such pain that we'll never get over. Your kids had the best father they could ever have, mommy and daddy couldn't ask for a more devoted son then you, a uncle that would always put a smile on his niece and nephew face as soon as you would walk into the room. The best part I can say is that you were the most understanding and caring brother in any situation we would find ourselves in, you were always there trying to fight our battles and there to protects us. Life will be extremely hard without you here but I know that you're watching us from up above and will be the guardian angel to all those who loved you very much. I love you so much Hector, you'll never be replaceable in our family.

I couldn't have asked for a better husband and a better friend. I will cherish what we have had together and most of all our wonderful children that we have made out of love together. I never imagined life without you. Our children Jalynn, Autumn, and Corbin will never forget you and the amazing family we built together. We had some amazing times that we will always remember. You were my dearest friend and my most cherished companion. I love you still and wait for the day that we can see eachother again. Your memory will live through our children and we will all make you proud. Love never dies.
