Luis Miguel Quintana

May 20, 1987 — June 20, 2023

Luis Miguel Quintana, 36, passed away Tuesday, June 20, 2023 in San Diego, California. He was born May 20, 1987 in Springerville, Arizona, the son of and Leticia Quintana and Miguel Hinojos.

Luis (Michael to his family) contributed his hard work, dedication and perseverance from watching his mother raise him. Her guidance and admirable examples of love, kindness and determination set the example that Luis lived by.

Luis graduated from Round Valley High School in 2005 and immediately enlisted in the United States Navy. Known as “Q” to everyone in the Navy, he served on active duty for 18 years, achieving the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer. He was a loud and proud Aviation Ordnanceman (IYAOYAS), who loved his job and all the amazing places and experiences it allowed him. He impacted many people’s lives during his decorated naval career but his proudest moment was marrying the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Pamela Phelps Quintana, having a beautiful daughter, Liliana and two amazing sons, Benjamin and Nicolas. He was a devoted father, husband, son and brother, whose family was always his number one priority; which he always said he learned from his mother. 

He dedicated his life to the United States Navy and took immense pride in his service to the United States of America. He was known as a hard worker and being a leader to his fellow shipmates. He is known for his wit and sarcasm and for always being there for anyone that needed someone to listen. He valued education and just recently received his Masters of Science in Management degree from Troy University. 

His death is a shock to everyone, but his legacy will continue through Liliana, Benjamin, Nicolas and all who loved him.

Luis is survived by his wife, Pamela Sue Phelps Quintana, sons, Benjamin Quintana (9 yrs.), Nicolas Quintana (7 yrs.), daughter, Liliana Quintana (12 yrs.), parents, Leticia Quintana and David Laborin, brothers, Victor Laborin, Alex Laborin, sister, Adriana Laborin, grandparents, Andrea and Hitolito Hingos and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
