Guillermo Valverde Jr. (Will), 55, was born on February 1, 1967 in El Paso, Texas and passed away in July 2022 in Phoenix, Arizona. He graduated from the University of Phoenix and for most of his adult life worked in the financial services industry where he formed long-lasting friendships. Will enjoyed several hobbies like playing the guitar and watching sporting events, but his number one passion was golf. He was a devout Catholic and lived his life by the church's teachings. He saw the good in everyone, the blessings in everything, and taught us all the value of gratitude. He reminded us daily how much his family meant to him, and how important it was to show love to one another.
Will's number one priority was caring for his two sons - Zach and Chase. He loved them unconditionally and always held them foremost in his heart. When his stepdaughter Kyla came into his life, he welcomed her as his own. He cared deeply for family - his parents, his sisters, his nephews, and others with whom he shared many wonderful moments.
Will is survived by his loving parents - Guillermo Sr. and Avelina Valverde, sons - William Zachary and Chase Jackson Valverde, stepdaughter Kyla Daniels, sisters Magdalena Blankenship and Yolanda Mimbela, nephews - John Jr. and Michael Mimbela, great nephews and nieces - Jonathan, Bella, Evelyn, Nathan, Victoria, Jay, and Mikey Mimbela, extended family and many friends. He will be missed by all but never forgotten.
