Vicente Benito Menchaca, 88, was welcomed into the arms of God on Tuesday, August 23, 2022. Vicente was born on December 5, 1933, to Victoriano and Maria Menchaca in Junction, Texas. He was the youngest of 5 children. Vicente graduated from Junction High School in 1951. He went on to serve in the United States Army as a medic under Spec.4. His tenure included a tour in Germany before ending in Arkansas. Vicente was honorably discharged after 2 years of service. He went on to work as an Engineer Technician V for the Texas Department of Transportation. He retired in 1995 after 30 years of service.

Vicente married the love of his life, Enedina Boone, on January 31, 1960. They shared 62 beautiful years of marriage. They built a life together and were proud parents to their children, Vickie and Vicente Jr.

Vicente’s faith was a big part of who he was. He was a devout Catholic and proud member of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Junction. His unwavering love and faith in Christ helped mold the foundation of his children and grandchildren.

Vicente was preceded in death by his parents, Victoriano and Maria Menchaca; brothers, Andres, Jesus, and Apolonio Menchaca; and one sister, Estella Menchaca Hernandez.
