Mr. Quiñonez was a loving husband and father.

Mr. Quiñonez was a dedicated nurse who loved teaching and mentoring other nurses. He left a lasting impact on the people he cared for and interacted with and while he didn’t realize it at the time, he was an inspiration to many. He was very proud of the Daisy Award he received for excellent patient care.

Survivors include his wife, Maggie Quiñonez; daughter, Camila Quiñonez; mother, Maria (Engenio) Carreon; brother, Daniel (Hannah) Valencia; sisters, Angela and Alejandra Arteaga; several nieces and nephews; and many other family members.

He was preceded in death by his father, Mario Quiñonez.
