  • K. T.

    Sometime around the third grade, you lived in Burlington for a little while, just a few blocks from my house. You, your brother, and I would sometimes hang out together. We weren’t best, best friends, but I remember those times fondly. Just today I was thinking back to it, and I thought to look you up, only to find that you passed. It looks like you’ve lived a rich life surrounded by people who love and adore you. We should all be so lucky to depart having such an abundance of love. Rest in peace, Chico.

  • Lisa

    I’ll always cherish your caring big heart with the tough exterior, you’ve touched all of our hearts with it. Your son is carrying on that part of you!
    May you be at peace
    Love always,
    Lisa Cress

  • Dick Saunders

    I was pleased to have lived next door to Chico in Mount Vernon when he was growing up with his
    brothers and family. The boy’s were so much fun to watch and visit with. You will be missed so
    much by all. Thanks for being a friend .

  • Kari Vance

    My dearest Chico, you forever left memories I’ll treasure my lifetime. You boys are loved as my own and I am proud to call you family. From the little boys who would hang out day and night or till forced home and show back up at O’ dark stupid to picking you and Matty up at Anacortes PD to me punishing you for tipping that porta potty because you were bored, coming over just to play with Alena and Meliah, protecting my kids and myself, all the way to the loving father you became. Through your troubles and smiles, laughter and loud mouth. I was so proud of you, I love you, I’ll miss you till we meet up again. R.I.P sweet Chico

    I’ll miss your visits to my house when you couldn’t wait to show me one of your wrestling moves. You always lit up the room with your huge smile.

    Chico, my brother, my heart hurts, but the memories you leave behind will remind me always of the greatest son, brother, father, friend and defender of all…..

  • Alisha LaBane

    As kids we were always together. Most of the time we (Chico, Skyler, Damon, Tristan and I) would spend our time wrestling and running around with the horses. As we became adults we still kept in touch but not as often but still were close family. I love you and will miss you so much. You will forever be in our hearts. Say hi to the rest of the family that we miss that you are now with once again.
    Love you Chico

  • Aryn LaBane

    Chico was an amazing cousin for me. I will greatly miss you. You will be in our hearts forever. You were taken so quickly from us and its hard to believe you gone. But i know you will be safe now. Until we meet again R.I.P Chico I love you.

  • Alisha LaBane

    I miss you so much, Ill always love you, forever and ever, rest in peace by beautiful friend, and so much more! ill never forget all the time spent with you!

  • angel hoey

    I know that we were not as close a family as we should have been. As we grow up we move away and start our own families and it sometimes is hard to get together often. I know that for children it can sometimes be difficult. Chico, you once called me out on that. You asked me “Where were you all those years. I didn’t have an answer for you at that time. When we did get together, we were family and that is all that mattered. I will always remember you and think fondly of those times we were together.
    Rest in peace my nephew, chico

  • Trina LaBane

    Our lives have all been better,

    in God’s all-loving care.

Our memories last in my heart. You have your loving dad with you now and I know you will be watching over us all. Until I see you again, I love you chico always and forever. Your laugh, our laughs, and smile stays with me. Miss you. Love always, Sophia, Maximus and Gary

  • Tanya Garvin

    As a friend of your moms for 25+ years, I was shocked to here that you are gone…I watched you grow into a wonderful man, not unlike your father had been. You loved to fish and was always the life of the party, just as your father before you…way to young to end this journey called life but that is the choice you made. Can’t be changed now…I didn’t know you as well as I know your parents, but I am sure you are in heaven with your father…watching over your son and your loved ones..still the life of the party. Rest in peace, with much love, Tanya

  • Sarah Rea

    Chico, I have always loved you. I’ve known you since you were a little boy and watched you and your brothers grow up. I am truly heart broken that you have left this earth. You may be physically gone but you are here in spirit with all your loved ones and everyone you have touched in this life. You may have not been my biological cousin, but you have always been family to me. I’ve always wished the best for you and will carry you in my heart. Gone to soon….may you now rest in peace. I will see you again someday on the other side. I cherish the time I’ve had with you and grateful you were a part of my life. You were a great man. With love….always in my heart

  • crystal yzaguirre

    I can’t say I knew you personally but I can say your uncle spoke of you very highly and loved you very much, I have been reading post’s on fb the last few days and you have so many people that loved you very much. From pictures that I have seen you were a very full spirited young man and as a teen very full of life there as well. I guess what I’m trying to say is your life was cut way to short and you have so many people you left behind that love and miss you dearly, but no mind you will always be loved and never be forgotten you have had a beautiful impact on so many lives while you were here on gods green earth, and know you are in heaven in the beautiful kindom surrounded by so many angels and the lord himself. May you rest in peace and watch over your family. Much love and Peace to a wonderful nephew I never got to meet. Love,
    Crystal Yzaguirre
