James Quintero, 42, passed peacefully on January 25, 2022, following a long and valiantly fought battle with cancer.  A beloved husband, son, brother, uncle, nephew, and grandson, James was a kind and fiercely positive presence in the world. He was a proud alumnus of Arizona State University, where he met and married the love of his life. He was a talented classically-trained clarinetist, and a skilled amateur photographer. James enjoyed hiking and camping, watching college football, riding his motorcycle, target shooting, and traveling with his wife, spending long drives in his truck listening to good music, and delighting in the simple moments that gave him the most joy. He also was an animal lover and was devoted to his many pets through the years.

James is survived by his wife, Linda; parents Rebecca and Ricardo; siblings Pascal and Rebecca; grandmother Josephine; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, and a nephew. He will be missed immensely by those who knew and loved him and will continue to be an inspiration for the strength, dignity, and grace with which he fought his cancer. James never missed an opportunity to express his appreciation to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Mayo Clinic of Arizona; his family extends their gratitude to those who provided him with compassionate care, as well.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
