Obituary For Nikha Marcella De Guzman
Nikha De Guzman, an ambitious young woman and resident of Union City, passed away unexpectedly and tragically Thursday, January 29, 2022 at 10:44am at Regional Medical Center in San Jose, California.
Nikha was born October 10th, 2001 in Washington Hospital of Fremont, California to
Leilani De Guzman and Warren Velasquez. As a child, she was actively involved in soccer and
cheerleading in her academic years. Her dedication to these sports helped her to accomplish various awards in her participation. She graduated from James Logan High School in Union City, California in 2019. She subsequently attended Chabot College in Hayward, California until the spring of 2020.
Nikha worked as a service representative for Apple, Tesla and at Round Table Pizza.
She was a devoted worker, and often took the responsibility of working late nights. She always
was self-sufficient and an independent young lady.
Nikha was a talented and creative artist. In her spare time, she covered songs, and wrote poetry, literature, as well as her own music. She also was an avid player of the ukulele. One of her dreams was becoming a professional musician or lyric writer. She would often write
in her journal, her outlet.
She was also talented at makeup, nails, and different hair styles. She would always make it a priority to express herself with her unique style. We would encourage her to go to Beauty School - so she could open up her own salon or be a professional make-up artist for celebrities in Hollywood.
She was always fond of animals, especially dogs, but also chickens and kittens. She
was the only one in the family who was kind to Chloe, her Auntie Jocelyn’s Maltipoo, allowing
her to sleep with her every night surrounding her with love. As a child, she loved the barn
animals, that resided in her grandparent’s residence in their home country, Cavite, Philippines. Most notably, she formerly owned a dog which traveled with her on vacations.
Nikha is preceded by her father, Warren Velasquez of Hayward, California and her
father’s side grandfather, of Roseville, California.
Her mother, Leilani De Guzman, of Union City, survives the home.
Other intimate survivors who she grew up with during her first 11 years are her grandparents, Corazon and Melanio De Guzman; her uncle/God Father, Jonathan De Guzman,
of Union City; her cousin, but more of a brother, Drew Enriquez De Guzman, now of Kansas City, Missouri. Other intimate survivors are her grandmother Arlene Velasquez, half brother,
Andrew Velasquez, and Aunt April Velasquez and Aunt Abigail Hernandez of Roseville. Further survivors close to Nikha include her aunt, Jocelyn De Guzman of Oakland; as well as numerous cousins, of Roseville.
Nikha, who was always a nurturer and a compassionate soul, left the world as a heroine - donating her organs and saving 6 lives through the Donor Network transplant organization.
Nikha, you are forever living in all our hearts and until our time has come, we hope to hold you in our arms again.
