AJ Vincent

May 23, 1988 — May 17, 2024

Alfonso Garza Vincent III, affectionately known as AJ Vincent, passed away on May 17, 2024, at the age of 35, after a courageous battle with cancer. AJ was surrounded by his loving family and friends, leaving behind a legacy of bravery and kindness that has touched many lives.

AJ was born on May 23, 1988, in Abilene, Texas, to Alfonso Vincent Jr. and Delia Vincent. As the cherished only son among three sisters, AJ was the heart of his family. He graduated from Cooper High School, where he began forming the friendships and community connections that would last his lifetime.

For 17 years, AJ dedicated himself to his work at Unifirst, starting his career at the age of 18. His commitment and excellence were recognized through numerous awards, reflecting his hard work and integrity. AJ's passion for his job was matched by his love for sports; he played softball and was a devoted fan of the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers.

AJ's true joy in life came from spending time with his family and friends, especially his beloved nieces and nephews. Known for his warm personality and a heart of gold, AJ never met a stranger and made friends wherever he went. His ability to connect with others and his genuine kindness made him a hero to his family and a cherished friend to many.

He is preceded in death by his grandfather, Armando Garza Sr.; his grandmother, Gudalupe Garza; and his grandfather, Alfonso Vincent Sr.

AJ Vincent's memory will forever be a beacon of strength, love, and friendship. He leaves behind his parents, Alfonso Vincent Jr. and Delia Vincent; his three sisters, Jessica Yeatts and husband Rob, Crystal Vincent, and Trini Vincent; his nieces and nephews, Javen, Kyleigh, Arianna, and Jett; and several other family and friends who will miss him dearly.
