1919-2014

Vicente Trevino Ximenes, and in family circles known as “Chente,” passed away on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014. He was born Dec. 5, 1919.

Vicente would say in moments of reflection, how his path through life was started in a small town in Floresville, Texas, serving his country on the world stage, being a voice for justice and equality for all people, returning to serve his state of New Mexico, his city of Albuquerque, his neighborhood, and finally his beloved community at La Vida Llena. Woven throughout his service and accomplishments was his steadfast support and love of his “familia.” Our father’s beautiful life story includes many special friends, so please consider this a personal note of thanks and gratitude for being a part of his life and sharing his adventure. As a family, we thank Mando and Jackie Lopez for the circle of love that you wrapped around our family. To our cousin Linda Ximenes, Chente loved your visits. To everyone who shared Vicente’s journey, like the Mexican corridas, that told the history of a country and the lives of its people, you are a part of his song and forever in our canciones de nuestro padre (songs of our father), said the family.

Vicente was preceded in death by his lifelong love, Maria Ximenes; son Estevan; sister Hercilia Toscano; and brothers Ben, Edward, and Waldo Ximenes.

He is survived by his son, Ricardo Ximenes and wife Patricia; daughters Olivia Harrington and husband Patrick and Ana Maria Baroch and husband Steve; daughter-in-law Patty Snipes; granddaughter Theresa Ximenes; great-granddaughters Chloe and Madison Ximenes-Merrill; brother Joe Ximenes; sister Magdalena Valdez; sister-in-law Mary-Lou Ximenes; and all of his familia in San Antonio and Floresville, which is lovingly and happily large.

A rosary will be held on Thursday, March 6, at 6 p.m. in the FRENCH Funerals and Cremations -- Lomas in Albuquerque, NM.

A graveside service will be held on Friday at 2:30 p.m. in the Mount Calvary Cemetery in Albuquerque. Memorial donations may be made to the Vicente Ximenes Scholarship Fund in care of Michelle Hall Kells, University of New Mexico, Department of English, MSC 032107, Albuquerque, N.M. 87131.
