Nicole Wattley offered the following statement:
I first want to thank everyone for their prayers and positive thoughts through this difficult time. The kids and I appreciate all of them. Q will be missed by many. Q was a great father to his four young children, Sara, Devin, Daniel and Raina and grown son Timothy. Q was also a great partner in life to me for the short time we were able to spend together. Even though his time was cut short, his memories will live on.
Q did not just love his family at home but he also loved his UCCS family. He loved his job and the people he worked with.
I would like everyone to know that Q always told me that he would want to be remembered as being the best person he could be for his family and friends and also being the best employee he could be for UCCS.
