Vicente Valero III
He was a modern Renaissance man
He was a Texas boy. You could see it in his red starred-and-striped American Eagle shirt. You could see when he showed his hogs in stock shows.
His skills varied from taekwondo to agriculture, music and robotics — the makings of a modern Renaissance man. Supporting him was his big family, who had recently lost the family patriarch, the namesake of both him and his father. A name passed down with love.
On April 30, 2018, in Christine, Texas, Vincent Valero III, 17, was accidentally shot by his father who didn’t know the 45-caliber handgun was loaded as he worked on it at the kitchen table.
