MARQUEZ, Samuel Antunez
Born November 2, 1999
Mexico City, Mexico
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Sammy, beloved son of Serafin and Anita Antunez Marquez, on August 18, 2011 at Canuck Place, a children’s hospice in Vancouver. Sammy fought so hard and courageously against his cancer for more than one year.
Sammy is survived by his loving and devoted parents, Serafin and Anita, his younger sister Rebeca, paternal grandma, Feliciana Guillermo and maternal grandma, Concepcion Vega Perez and many other family members and friends in Mexico.
Sammy was a grade 6 student at Courtenay Elementary School. He was popular and much loved by all the staff and students. Sammy had a sweet, gentle demeanor and a kind soul. He was always positive during his illness and in spite of intensive ongoing medical treatment, Sammy’s courage was a great example to all of us. He will be dearly missed by everyone who had the privilege to know him and he will never be forgotten.
There will be a public viewing on Thursday, August 25 2011 starting at 6:30pm at the Comox Pentecostal Church, 1919 Guthrie Road in Comox.
Please join in the celebration of life for Sammy on Friday, August 26 2011 at the Comox Pentecostal church at 11:00 am.
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
