Justo Alfonso Marroquin, 99, of Wood Dale, IL concluded a long, wonderful life when he passed away on September 11, 2020 at home surrounded by those that love him most, his adoring family. He was born on February 26, 1921 the son of Rueben and Pastora Marroquin in Ecuador. Justo lived the majority of his life in Ecuador and it was there he met the love of his life, Maria Romero. Before long, the two lovebirds were wed and began their life together in Ecuador where they started their family. 12 years ago Justo acheived citizenship in the United States and it is here that, along with his beautiful wife, he and most of his family are living their lives. Maria and Justo were ever so blessed to get 59 years of blissful union before Justo passed into his journey to eternity, where he will wait patiently for his beloved, Maria and ultimately the rest of his family to be reunited. He was the dedicated patriarch of four generations whose impact was felt by so many and who will be forever missed as well as never forgotten.
He is survived by his loving wife: Maria Romero; his 4 sweetheart daughters: Georgina Marroquin, Monica (William) Ordonez, Esthella Marroquin, and Julia Marroquin; his 5 devoted sons: Alfonso Marroquin, German (Claudia) Marroquin, Alfredo (Margot) Marroquin, Eduardo Marroquin and Dario Marroquin; 23 adoring grandchildren; 8 adorable great-grandchildren; his dear brother: Leonidas Marroquin; and his beloved sister: Rosa Marroquin as well as many other family and friends who will always love him.
He is preceded in death by his proud parents; his late brother, Alfredo Marroquin; and his cherished sister, Georgina Marroquin.
