On April 3rd, 2016 we lost a truly special man. He was a big brother, a cousin to so many, a friend to all, and most importantly – a father.
“You’re not living if you’re not laughing”
Rafael John Diaz
October 18th, 1982 – April 3rd, 2016
Rafael Diaz (RJ, Raf, Bro) had his ups and downs like many of us but had continued to persevere until his tragic, untimely death. He had so much more to give in this life. He loved his friends and family, especially his daughter Alex, more than words can even express.
This untimely passing has left the Diaz family in a state of shock. Not only has his sisters, Erica and Summer, lost their bother but their mother is also terminally ill.
As a family – whether we’re bound by blood or friendship – let’s do everything we can to help support Erica, Summer, and Alex. One way we can do that is by helping them with the funeral expenses for cremation.
All donations will be sent directly to the family.
Rafael Diaz is survived by his loving mother, two compassionate sisters, and a beautiful daughter. Let’s help them with this one burden so they can grieve without this worry.
RJ was my cousin. A sweet young boy who I visited every summer with our Grandmother. I didn’t know him as well into his adulthood but I did know that underneath it all he was that loving, little boy. I also know that he loved his sisters and his daughter fiercely.
I hope we can raise these funds quickly for Erica and Summer as this is the last thing they need to worry about right now.
