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.

The memory of his zest for life and his intense love for family and friends will be that which we’ll hold most dear.
