Victoriano Roca Sánchez "El Gavilán Pollero” Obituary

Victoriano Roca Sánchez "El Gavilán Pollero” de Kearny, NJ regreso a la presencia de nuestro Padre Celestial el 21 de diciembre de 2023 a la edad de 78 años. Él vino de orígenes humildes de Tibillo, Ica, Perú. Es el hombre más trabajador y cariñoso que podamos conocer. Siempre trabajó duro para mantener a su esposa e hijos. Era increíblemente detallista cuando enviaba a su amada esposa flores con una tarjeta por cada cumpleaños y aniversario. Vivió una vida de servicio, en especial cuando daba hospedaje a familia que venía de Perú a Estados Unidos por primera vez.

Vivió el sueño americano y sin una educación universitaria formal fue capaz de crear un pequeño negocio exitoso - Kearny Liquor & Deli. La gente le conocía como Don Víctor "El Gavilán Pollero.” Servía deliciosa comida peruana. Cuando la gente entraba en su bodega, solían preguntar, "¡Hola, Don Victor! ¿Tiene comida?" El respondía, “¡Oh si! Claro, claro tenemos pollo a la brasa, chicharrón, jamón de país, y tamales de chancho y pollo." Trataba a sus clientes como familia.

Tenía un acento adorable cuando describía las cosas en inglés. Siempre decía: "You gotta worka like a horse". Pronunciaba el apellido de Arnold Schwarzenegger como "Chabernasi" y se frustraba con nosotros por no entenderle.

Lo que más alegría le daba en la vida era nosotros, su familia. También le encantaba la historia, la política peruana, viajar y todo lo que tuviera

que ver con México, especialmente el Tren Maya.

Le sobreviven su amada esposa Doris Roca, su hijo mayor Victor Roca con su esposa Grecia, su hijo Alexander Roca, y su hijo menor Gabriel Roca con su esposa Blanca Sofia y sus hija Sofia Alejandra Roca (su querida nieta). Dejó un legado de trabajo dedicado, servicio, caridad y amor. Todos le extrañaremos profundamente.

 

Victoriano Roca Sánchez "El Gavilán Pollero" of Kearny, NJ returned to the presence of our Heavenly Father on December 21, 2023 at the age of 78. He came from humble beginnings from Tibillo, Ica, Peru. He is the most hardworking and caring man we can ever know. He always worked hard to provide for his wife and children. He was incredibly detail-oriented when he sent his beloved wife flowers with a card for every birthday and anniversary. He lived a life of service, especially when he would provide a place to stay for family coming from Peru to the United States for the first time.

He lived the American dream and without a formal college education was able to create a successful small business - Kearny Liquor & Deli. People knew him as Don Victor "El

Gavilán Pollero." He served delicious Peruvian food. When people would walk into his corner deli, they would ask, "Hello, Don Victor! Do you have food?" He would reply, "Oh yes! Of course, of course. We have rotisserie chicken, pork sandwiches, and pork and chicken tamales." He treated his clients like family.

He had an adorable accent when he described things in English. He would always say, "You gotta worka like a horse." He pronounced Arnold Schwarzenegger's last name "Chabernasi" and would get frustrated with us for not understanding him.

What gave him the most joy in life was us - his family. He also loved history, Peruvian politics, traveling, and anything that had to do with Mexico, especially the “Tren Maya” (the Mayan train).

He is survived by his beloved wife Doris Roca, his eldest son Victor Roca with his wife Grecia, his son Alexander Roca, and his youngest son Gabriel Roca with his wife Blanca Sofia and their daughter Sofia Alejandra Roca (his beloved granddaughter). He left a legacy of dedicated work, service, charity, and love. He will be deeply missed.
