Soki Segura, was a family man. He loved attending all his grandkids' activities. He looked forward to family camping trips and hunting with his brothers and nephews.  He loved playing music and was always ready to strike up a jam session. He was a long time member of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and a member of the church choir.   His passion to always be a helpful hand was demonstrated best when he was suddenly called upon no matter what the job entailed.  There are many YouTuber’s who are thankful to Socorro because he could be found searching DIY videos covering a certain task when he didn’t know how to carry it out.  He loved a challenge and could never idly stand-by.  The Segura's regarded Soki as their hero because he always came to their rescue and it didn’t matter what time of day or how far he had to travel, he was always there.  Soki loved to stay active.  He could frequently be found walking around the neighborhood or at a local park, walking with his daughter and the family dog. His laughter was contagious, as was his smile.  His compassion to help someone in need was never withheld.  Beyond a doubt, there was nothing that couldn’t be fixed with Jose, his favorite drink.  Everyone will miss this jokester.  We will miss his corny jokes and the ability to make anyone laugh.  Whether you knew him by Soki or Socorro, there was one thing that was certain, his name was synonymous with love and laughter.
