Samuel Marquez Jr., age 62, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 24, 2024. He was born on March 5, 1962 in Bakersfield, CA to Samuel and Frances Marquez.

He was a 1981 class of Porterville High School. He worked in plumbing for over 25 years as a former employee's slogan #1 in the #2 business that he was. Samuel truly lived life to the fullest...through simple pleasures chatting with family and good friends, enjoying a cold one, spending time with his kids and especially his grandkids. Sam always had a way of reaching people in a deep way. Sam lit up every room he entered. He was truly one of a kind.

Samuel is survived by his lifelong friend and Mother of his 3 children Carol Orduno. Son's Andrew { Ondria } and Vincent Marquez, his daughter Samantha Marquez and his five grandchildren, brothers and sisters. Along with the many family members whose lives Sam touched. He was preceded in death by his grandparents Adolofo & Carmen Marquez. His grandmother Virgina Tapia. As Sam would say my parent Johnny & Manuela Orduno. As Samuel's request there will be a private cremation service.

A celebration of life will be held on Friday May 17, 2024 at The Porterville Veterans Memorial Building at 12 pm. On behalf of The Marquez Family we would like to thank you for the Love and devotion you gave Sam during his 62 years of life and the heartfelt support for the family.
