Hector Rivera, of Las Vegas, Nevada passed away on December 21, 2022, at the age of 72. Hector was born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico to Carmelo and Carmen Rivera.

Hector graduated from Leilehua High School, Wahiawa, Hawaii in 1968. He was a devoted Honolulu Police Officer for 18 years. He relocated to Las Vegas and worked as an Auto Claims Adjuster for several insurance companies.

Hector's love of cars became evident during his teen years with his unique paint themes, modifying, repairing, restoring and customizing vehicles. He had an in-depth knowledge of automobiles.

His dedication to his employment never deterred him from lending a hand to his friends needs. Hector was indeed a friend on call.
