Vincent Romero, 55, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, October 25, 2020 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Vincent was born September 1965, in Las Vegas, New Mexico to Waldron and Adelina Romero. 

Vincent was the middle of three children. He went to Robertson High School, there he met his high school sweetheart, and the love of his life Annie. He and Annie celebrated 35 years of holy matrimony this year. Through this union, they have three children. He continued his education to be a diesel mechanic at the Universal Technical Institute in Arizona. He then went to TVI in Albuquerque, where he got his associates in electronics, robotics, HVAC, and refrigeration license. Vincent worked for almost 20 years at a pharmaceutical company as a metrologist.

Vincent was a very honest man and was an amazing husband and father who always put his family first. He was an active member in the catholic church. He loved to go camping every year with his entire family and taught the kids how to ride dirt bikes and quads. He also loved chocolate and liked our family dinners. He was a compassionate person who always cared about animals and his grand-dogs. When Vincent would laugh, he would light up the room and you always knew when he was happy because he would smile with his eyes.  

Vincent was a brilliant man who loved to fix, customize, and invent things. He always worked in the garage and had projects to keep him busy. He was extremely creative in everything he did. There was nothing Vincent could not fix and if he did not know how initially, he would learn and figure it out. He was a hard worker. No matter what the job was he always prided himself on doing his best and instilled that in all his children. 

He will be missed greatly but never forgotten.

He is survived by his wife Annie Romero; son Fabian; daughters: Natasha and spouse Raymond, Leanndria and spouse Robert; one grandson on the way; parents: Waldron and Adelina Romero, brothers: Tom Romero and wife Merlyn, Eugene Romero and wife Nina.
