Q was born on January 9, 1952 in Sebastian, Texas.  Q later lived in California and relocated to Oregon in 1988.   Q was joined in marriage to Betty (Neske) Becker on June 4, 1999 at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Buffalo.  They enjoyed life together between their homes in Otis, Ore. and Princeton.
Q is survived by his loving wife Betty, siblings Jorge (Kim) Loredo, Isidoro (Shirley) Loredo, Juanita (Jose) Poblete, Maxina (Jeremy) Melton, and Dora Loredo all of California.  Daughters Gregoria (Steve) Fernandez and Demetria (Antonio) Borja also of California.  Also daughters ‘in heart’ Brenda (Lauren) Wolff of Annandale, and Stacy (Paul) Eull of St. Michael.  Grandchildren Cecilia Fernandez and Marco Borja of Calif., Dacoda, Brady and Hunter Wolff, and Elyssa and Cory Lynn Eull of Minn., and many other dear relatives and friends.  Q was preceded in death by his parents Pedro and Antonia (Lara) Loredo, stepmother Beatrice, brother Pedro “Pete” Loredo and sister Trinidad Loredo all of Calif.
Q had many talents and worked in the woodworking and welding inspection trades; he retired in 2009.   He was a friendly, caring man.  Q loved the simple pleasures of life; spending time with family and friends, nature, exploring, fishing, crabbing, photography, tinkering with motors, and tending his yard.  He was a lifelong learner, and enjoyed teaching and showing others, especially kids, something new.  Q was a faithful member in his church and various AA groups.  His welcoming and caring nature, warm smile, hugs, and sense of humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him. His favorite spots were the Salmon River and Pacific City in Oregon.
