Jan. 1957 ~ Jul. 2013

Richard was born in Oakland, California to Juan and Ester Velasquez in 1957 and settled in Modesto over 30 years ago.  He enjoyed riding motorcycles, was an avid 49er fan and liked to play his bass guitar for his grandchildren.  Richard was fondly known as “MacGyver” by his family because of all the projects he took on around the home.  Most of all, Richard loved his grandchildren dearly and was an amazing Papa.

He is survived by his loving wife Gloria Velasquez; children Renee Velasquez, Richelle Velasquez, Amanda (Rudy) Salazar and Richie (Shelly) Velasquez; siblings Maria Medina, Melvin Velasquez, Carmen Martinez, Wilson Velasquez, Eduardo Velasquez, Danny Velasquez, Juan Velasquez, Jr. and Joann Velasquez; grandchildren Ale Velasquez, Xavier Salazar, Ava Velasquez and Penelope Velasquez.  Richard is preceded in death by his parents and sister Hilda Torres.
