Obituary of Quinten Lance Perez
Quinten Lance Perez, 23, of Land O’ Lakes passed away April 28, 2019. He was born in Tampa, Florida, and was a lifelong resident of the Land O’ Lakes and Wesley Chapel areas. He graduated from Land O’ Lakes High School in 2014 where he was also a member of the LOLHS baseball team. Quinten was an avid outdoorsman with a love for bass fishing and hunting. He not only loved being outdoors, but loved his family as well, especially his two little sisters, Zoe and Kylie. He could always be found listening to country music and wearing a hat, boots, and a big smile. He was a loyal and caring friend who could put a smile on anyone’s face. Wanting to be just like his Uncle Wade, Quinten began an apprenticeship to become a lineman with the Withlacoochee Power Electric Cooperative. Quinten will be remembered as a respectful, charismatic, young man who was selfless and full of life. He is preceded in death by his maternal great-grandmother, Betty Scurlock; parental grandparents, Arturo Perez, Sr., Maria Perez, and Jean Smith. He is survived by his mother, Jessica Matkin, and her husband, Chris; his father, Art Perez, and his wife, Dawn; sisters, Zoe and Kylie Matkin; maternal grandparents, Randy & Darlene Byrd; paternal grandparents Matt & Judy Matkin; great-grandmother, Margaret Byrd (Malmal); Uncle Wade & Aunt Beth Byrd; Uncle Eric & Aunt Stacy Byrd; Uncle Jay & Aunt Marcie Nash; Uncle Ryan & Aunt Gretchen Matkin; Uncle Kevin Stream; Uncle John Stream; cousins, Landon, Cambron, Ella, Kinsey, Zack, Caroline, Kyra, Jake, and Tanner. Quinten also leaves behind extended family and friends, in which he considered and treated like family.
