Jaime Vázquez-Rivera, an icon in San Antonio's Puerto Rican community, made his family and friends promise they would celebrate his life and not mourn his death. Mr. Vázquez, 67, left to be with the Lord on November 19th, 2008. He is survived by his wife, Mary Theresa Vázquez; his daughter and two sons, Gladys Wolf and Joe and Jim Vázquez, as well as 8 grandchildren. He retired after proudly serving his country for 22 years in the United States Army, including a tour in Vietnam as a combat medic. He later taught High School at Incarnate Word and John Jay High Schools. Mr. Vázquez mentored hundreds of service members and their families in San Antonio's Puerto Rican community, often entertaining children's birthday parties as "Nomo the Clown." He was a 4th degree member of the Knights of Columbus. Rosary: Monday, Nov. 24, at 6 PM; Sunset Chapel, 1701 Austin Hwy. Mass: Tuesday, Nov. 25, at 9:45 AM; St. Thomas More, 4427 Moana. Burial: Ft.
