Roque was born on February 7, 1988, he is a Bay Area Native who grew up loving the sport of boxing like his father. Roque was the rock for his family and always wanted what was best for them, he was the glue that held them together, and was adamant about providing for them and everyone he cared for. Roque loved making people happy.
He was an amazing father who no matter what would do anything for his children, they were his life line. Miya and Ricardo were his most valuable assets and his baby girl Araceli will always know how much he loves her even without his presence.
His career goals were to one day own his own barber shop and was working as a barber apprentice.
He is and forever will be missed.
