Jose Antonio Vasquez, age 52 of Bridgeport, returned to the Loving Arms of the Lord on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at Yale New Haven Hospital, Bridgeport. He was born in Manhattan; son of Iraida Rivera. Jose was a hard and responsible worker who had a true passion for music. He was charismatic; his happiness and goodness seeping into every aspect of his work - it was impossible not to love him! He was wildly protective over his family and was truly his brothers' keeper. Along with his mother, Jose is survived by his siblings: Felix Rivera, Robert DeJesus, Georgina DeJesus, Miguel DeJesus, Marisol Vasquez, Maria Rivera, Diana Hereida and Daniel Cruz. Family and friends are invited to attend Calling Hours on Friday, August 6, 2021 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Funeraria Luz de Paz, 426 E. Washington Ave. Bridgeport, CT 06608.
