I played with Quinny my freshman year two years
ago and i will always remember, you would never be at a game without hearing his
voice. He was always cheering everyone on even if he wasn't in the game and no
matter what the score was quinny was always the one to motivate the team and
pick his teammates up. He will be missed. ILMOJQ

North Catholic basketball games will never be the same without you Quinny. You are truly missed by many. R.I.P Kid
Quinny was a great teammate, friend, and person. I will miss seeing him around the neighborhood. He will be remembered as the smallest kid with the biggest heart. I just wanted to post this not just for him but for his family. He will be missed. RIP lil man.
As a freshman at North Catholic, you never sat with the
seniors during your lunch period. That was true, for
everyone besides Quinny. My lunch table senior year was
chock full of the senior baseball players, than there was
Quinny. He did an awesome job keeping us loose, always
cracking a joke, but the reason we really let him sit there,
is because he made us feel very good about ourselves. It was
clear he looked up to us as the varsity baseball team, his
goal was to be in our shoes one day. Attending baseball
games after I graduated, I can't tell you how many games
Iíve been to that they won or lost. I can't rattle off the
starting the line ups at those games. I can however vividly
remember Quinny, and hearing his words of encouragement for
his teammates. Quinny will be missed by the North Catholic
family, and everyone who has had the pleasure to be in his
