Israel Roque

January 27, 1991 — December 22, 2023

Waco, Texas

Israel Roque, 32, passed to be with the Lord in December 2023, near his wife Heidi and loving family surrounding him. Born on January 27, 1991, to Ruben and Norma Roque. He grew up in Waco, Texas and graduated from Midway High school, class of 2010. He then attended McLennan College for his business degree.

Israel started helping his dad in the family business at age 15 and later became a partner for Israel Auto Sales. He was dedicated and played an integral role to build the family business with integrity and quality of his work. He worked closely with his parents for 17 years and made great memories alongside them.

Israel had a unique personality and genuine character, his heart was huge. Israel lived a good life full of adventure and he was driven with curiosity. He enjoyed traveling, working on his projects, getting the next car of his dreams, being outdoors, going to church and spending time with his family, making memories was always his goal. He attended Antioch as well as his wife’s home church at Amistad. Israel gave his life to Jesus Christ and got baptized at Antioch Church on April 23, 2023, his faith was stronger than ever.

He met his beloved wife, Heidi, through his sister Thalia, during many years of friendship. During those years of friendship, when the time was right he built up the courage to finally approach. He stated “she was one of the sweetest girls he had ever met.” They dated for about 3 years and finally got happily married on May 4. They loved spending time together as quality time was his love language. The friendship and love they shared was a true statement of the unity they had with one another.

Israel, will be dearly missed by his loving wife, his family, friends, and all people he met throughout his journey.  His life came to an end too soon not being able to complete the many dreams he still wanted to accomplish. He will forever be in our hearts and the amazing memories we all created with him will forever keep him alive. Holding on to God’s promises, Israel is now rejoicing in heaven. We love you Israel Roque, may you ask God to give us the strength to fight on and follow your footsteps until we meet again.
