Joaquin Mendez Jr. of San Marcos passed away on May 16, 2017, at the age of 74.

He is preceded in death by his father Joaquin Mendez, Sr., of California, his paternal grandparents who raised him, Emelio and Benedicta Mendez of San Marcos.
He is survived by his mother, Carmen Eden Mendez of California; sisters, Terry Cuevas and husband John of California, Louise Pugh and Irene Marquez also of California; and numerous aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Joaquin always had a sweet smile on his face and never passed the opportunity to converse with anyone who engage with him. His favorite conversation was to tell a tale about politicians. Junior (as he was called by those who knew him) loved all his relatives and never forgot them nor everyone's birthdates. He will be remembered for his affectionate personality and we were blessed to have had him in our lives.
A graveside service will be held at 10 am on Friday May 26, 2017, at San Marcos City Cemetery where he will be laid to rest next to his grandparents. Fr. Brian Zarsky will officiate. Rest In Peace our sweet Joaquin. For more information, call Thomason Funeral Home at (512) 396-2300 or visit to sign the guest book.
