Diego was a most loving young man and a very kind person…full of life and joy and great plans for the future. He was madly in love with his two children, Addison, age 5, and Hayden, 8 months. His kind heart will forever be his legacy, both figuratively and literally. Diego always felt a strong desire to help those in need. He was a Navy Veteran who loved his country and fellow man.
