ABOUT ME:

I am so very sorry to say that the Light carried Jessica Therese Marquez to her Heavenly home on May 19, 2022.   Born in Ft. Riley, Kansas, to Myriam Therese Marquez and Frank E. Davis on September 10, 1967. Jessica grew up in Aberdeen, Maryland, eventually residing and spending most of her adult years near Salt Lake City, Utah.   She is survived by her two children, Providencia Angelica Moreno and Victor Anthony Marquez, whom she loved so very dearly and meant the world to her.   Jessica was a beautiful woman who gained attention everywhere she went. She was short in height, and quite the firecracker, life of the party. She was able to balance her graceful femininity and her adventurous “tomboy” side so well.    She could be found hollering and cheering while watching NASCAR or attending the demolition derby. Jessica loved hiking and the outdoors in her early days, favorites being anywhere near the Chesapeake Bay or Southern Utah.    She was a romantic at heart, with the daintiest handwriting you’ve ever seen. Her closet always full of long floral and lace dresses, paired with pearls around her neck and her favorite perfume, Paloma Picasso.    Jessica faced many hurdles at a young age and fought a big fight, yet she always chased love and light. Surrounding herself with spiritual anchors, a lover of astrology, angels, crystals, and Jesus Christ.   She battled with addiction most of her life, eventually passing from an accidental overdose.   Jessica always had so much positivity and hope for the future, and was so fun to be around, whether you were dancing or crying together. She would do anything for her friends or to protect her children. She loved and felt deeply.    She is also survived by her two grandchildren, Forest and Autumn Moreno. Her mother Myriam Marquez, two sisters Gina Beaudette and Melanie Langley. Her previous long-time partners, Paul Robinson, Robert Ortega, and Justin Barney.   Our guardian angel in Heaven is now watching over her family, accompanied by her beloved grandmother, Providencia Zeigler, and her sister, Amy Caudill, along with her other ancestors. She is loved dearly.     Published by SereniCare Funeral Services – South Salt Lake on Nov. 9, 2022.

Sadly, just days before his 28 birthday, Daniel passed away from an accidental drug overdose in October 2022.Daniel graduated in 2013 from James H. Groves High School and attended Delaware Technical and Community College. He most recently worked at McGlynn’s Pub.Daniel was blessed with good health and a natural athleticism which he inherited from his dad. He enjoyed and excelled in many different sports such as soccer, baseball and ice hockey. Daniel was always fearless and it showed in his style of play and in his life. He was a terrific goalie in hockey, playing with the Snipers and as guest goalie for the Delaware Junior Blue Hens he was named MVP when they won the tournament. Daniel always made the All-Star team during his many years playing baseball with Canal Little League. After baseball, Daniel played lacrosse for a couple of seasons. His passion, however, was skateboarding. Early on, Daniel won a street competition in Wilmington and went on to earn the nickname “Shredder”. He was always up for a game of “S.K.A.T.E.” and he and his dad (mostly his dad!) put together a makeshift skate area with a quarter pipe ramp, box and rails and would often have fun competing with each other. Daniel also enjoyed going to the beach, where he would go surfing and boogie boarding with his dad and sister, Katie. Oftentimes, they would make a quick trip to the C & D Canal to get some fishing in and his Grandpop, George, would join them. Daniel, Katie and his Grandpop would often go to Lums Pond State Park for outdoor adventures. Daniel was a smart, funny and kind individual who had a heart for those less fortunate; whether it be people or animals. He had the ability to make friends easily and would often meet and make a new friend during family vacations. He was also a Philadelphia Flyers and Phillies fan and enjoyed going to the games. Daniel will be missed by his family and many friends.

Lost The Battle: October 14, 2022

ABOUT ME:

Kelli Jo Carpenter, age 45, passed away on Friday, October 14, 2022 in Summerfield Florida. She is survived by her children Katelyn Carpenter, Allison Carpenter, Jayden (Yeilina) Carpenter, grandchildren Amelia, Barrett, Oakley, Yasiah, mother Sylvia Trenum, brother John (Donna)South, sister Kristina (David) Adams and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Kelli Jo was beautiful, feisty, and outspoken; her personality lit up any room. She had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. Even while struggling, she always had the sweetest disposition. Kelli loved her family deeply, wanted to adopt every animal she saw, and play with every child she came across. She loved cleaning, gardening, cooking, and making others feel special. Kelli believed strongly in second chances maybe, because she always craved another chance for herself. After a long battle with drug addiction, her earthy life was ended by Heroin Overdose. No matter how troubled her life, she was not defined by her addiction and mistakes. We all know she was so much more than that. Kelli Jo had dreams for her future and fought all the way until the end. Unfortunately, she couldn’t break the chains of this disease. Addiction hides in the face of people all around us-it doesn’t discriminate. Addiction will take hold and destroy anyone in its path including the families and people who love them. Kelli Jo wasn’t just another statistic; she had a big heart and a gift that the world can never replace. Her family loved her very much and tried to help her win her battle. In this situation, there is a very fine line between helping and enabling. Her family finds comfort in knowing that she has been relieved of her pain by the Lord Jesus Christ. He knew she was ready. With his divine love, grace, and mercy we know we will see her again when he calls us home. Kelli’s family appreciates all the love and support extended by family and friends. Kelli’s private service will be held in Wildwood Florida, by invitation only. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you share Kelli’s story and the information below so that those who may be struggling with addiction can seek help. This battle does not have to be fought alone. Lovingly submitted by her sister, Kristina Adams.

Age: 32
Lost The Battle: September 30, 2022

ABOUT ME:

Danial Luke Armstrong (June 28, 1990- September 30, 2022)It is with overwhelming sadness that we announce the sudden death of Luke Armstrong from an accidental drug overdose. Luke was a creative, bright, and charming young man who made an impression on everyone he met. He loved to snowboard, unicycle, juggle, and bike. He was a daredevil and a risk taker and lived life on the edge. He was determined to control his own destiny and live his life on his own terms. In spite of debilitating mental illness, Luke faced challenges with remarkable creativity and optimism. Luke was unique! A common expression about Luke was, “He is the first person to ever…” This applied to filling a car full of water when he was young, smoking marijuana in the seclusion room of the psych ward, riding the Greyhound bus without a ticket by charming the bus driver, finding the phone number for the air ambulance and arranging for it to come and get him as he was tired of waiting in the hospital, and having a judge allow him to speak without standing or putting his hand up. (He was requesting that the next time he was in court that he could go first because it was hard for him to wait all day.) Luke was forward-looking and always had some scheme on the go. We miss him so much! He was predeceased by his father, Danial Reid Armstrong, his aunt Diane, and his two grandfathers. He is deeply loved by his surviving relatives, who include his mother, Elda, stepfather Pat, brother Ben, his two grandmothers, and numerous other relatives. We would like to thank the many, many friends and professionals who supported Luke and his family to deal with his illness over the years. A very special thanks to Tim Peters. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Salvation Army or St. Vincent de Paul’s. A memorial service is planned for a later date.

Name: Patrick Robert Anderson
Age: 34
Location: Bedford, New Hampshire
Lost The Battle: November 3rd, 2022

ABOUT ME:

Patrick Robert Anderson Bedford, NH – After a courageous struggle with the saddest epidemic facing us today, Patrick Robert Anderson passed away on Thursday, November 3rd, 2022, as a result of an apparent fentanyl-laced cocaine overdose. He celebrated his 34th birthday October 20th.Patrick was a vibrant, kindhearted, polite, intelligent, caring person who loved his family and friends. He easily laughed and enjoyed the moments he lived. He knew he was loved. While these remain his celebrated traits, they were greatly diminished by depression, OCD and the horrible disease of dependence. The last years of his life marked a painstaking, heartbreaking and harrowing journey through countless treatment systems, sober homes, and rehab facilities. Patrick just wanted to be “normal.” He died despite his efforts and the enormous resources provided by those he loved and who loved him. The countless hours, days, months and years he, his family, and friends dedicated, in hopes of recovery, couldn’t save him. This is the disease. This was his reality. In Patrick’s life, while he held a series of jobs in the financial, software, and service industries, his dependence prevented him from developing the real vocation and career path he so desperately searched for. Though he loved and connected with children easily, wanted to be a father from an early age and was adored by his niece and nephews, he never married nor had children of his own. He never had the chance to develop his many God-given talents and interests.  Instead of experiencing these joyful milestones into adulthood, Patrick faced unimaginable challenges and trials each day in search of recovery. He had nothing but potential and talent, but now he is gone. Patrick was very proud of his Irish heritage and was the beloved son of Patricia (Flaherty) Anderson and Thomas R. Anderson of Bedford, NH. He is survived by his sister Tara (Anderson) Hansen, her husband Thomas B. Hansen, his brother Thomas P. Anderson, his wife Meghan (Lyons) Anderson; as well as his niece Brigit Hansen, nephews Charles Anderson, Robert Anderson, Thomas R. Hansen, and Thomas P. Anderson, Jr. He also leaves several aunts, uncles, and cousins that through the years offered hope, inspiration, and support to help Patrick through good times and bad. Patrick was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Nancy Anderson and Dr. Robert Anderson and by his maternal grandparents, Joan Flaherty and Robert Flaherty. He had immense support from a great team and he loved them all for it. We are devastated by his loss. Patrick was so much more than his struggle with disease.  Even as a toddler he could operate the VHS tape player to the television and spent most times running around wearing a cape pretending to be superman which would explain his future fascination with DC and Marvel comics. He had an affinity for games and magic, declaring himself as an “inside kid.” He was an accomplished piano player and enjoyed various genres of music. Patrick also loved sports. He was a three-sport varsity athlete at West High School, but his passion was clearly football. Patrick co-captained the West High Football team during the 2006-2007 season. At an early age, Patrick developed a high football IQ and was able to manage his teams on both sides of the ball. This impressed several college recruits and as a result, Patrick received several scholarships to join football programs in New England. Patrick graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA, class of 2011. Possessing extraordinary drive and determination, he successfully earned a position on the Division One Holy Cross Football team as a walk-on. Despite not being recruited there, Patrick earned the respect and appreciation from coaches and teammates as an outstanding young man and athlete. Through it all, Patrick maintained his sense of kindness and deep religious faith. He fought but never gave up. We never gave up on him. He didn’t want to be dependent on anything, but he couldn’t escape how his brain was wired at birth. We are consoled by the countless happy memories spent with a beautiful human being and are fortunate to have had the privilege to be part of his short life. Rest in peace Patrick, we will see you again. We love you. Calling hours at Lambert Funeral Home & Crematory, 1799 Elm St, corner of North St, Manchester, will be Friday, November 11th from 3 to 7 pm. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Saturday, November 12th at noon in St. Elizabeth Seton Church, Meetinghouse Road, Bedford. Burial will be private at a later time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to Catholic Charities USA.

Lost The Battle: October 10, 2022

ABOUT ME:

Olivia was the baby of the family. Don’t let that fool you though. She was the most feisty of us all. She would be the first to tell you how she felt no questions asked. She was also one of the most loyal people that you would ever meet. She was not always a slave to the drug. Before the drug took over her life she was an amazing sister, aunt, friend and most importantly mother. She had 2 beautiful children who she loved more than anything. Once this stuff took over her life that all changed very quickly. All she worried about was where she was getting money for her next fix. In the beginning it started off slow and not many knew that this devil has sold of her life. Now my baby sister leaves behind her 2 beautiful children who will never remember their mother before drugs ruled her life because they were so young when it started and still very young when she passed. She never wanted to admit that she had a problem until the very end. Just 2 days before she passed she finally admitted that she was an addict and needed away from the life she had been living. After spending 7 months in jail just one more time turned into the last. But her life wasn’t lost in vain. She donated organs and was able to save the lives of 2 people who needed it. So now my baby sister lives on in people who we will never know. I hope they realize how special she was. Because to us she meant more than she ever knew. After the death of her mother depression took over life and lead to very bad choices. I hope that her story can help save more than just 2 lives. If you are reading this please get help. Your family loves you and they are waiting for the call that you are finally ready to change.

ABOUT ME:

JJ was the most loving person. He loved to Fish, bake cakes with his Grandma, skateboard and every other sport. He was always making people laugh and joking around.
I miss him today and hurt today as much as I did when he died. I miss sitting on the couch and watching the NBA games, especially all star weekend or watching the scariest movie he could find. When he was little (maybe 4)he would go into the playground go up to a group of kids and say I’m JJ can I play. The thing I miss most is hearing I love you Mom and the hugs and kisses.
