Wyatt Cordova-Jaramillo, age 17, a resident of Jarales, passed away on Friday, Nov. 3, 2023, surrounded by family and friends.
Services will be held on Thursday, Nov. 16, at Calvary Chapel Rio Grande Valley in Belen, starting with a visitation from 9-11 a.m., and a celebration of life to be held at 11 a.m.
He lived life to the fullest from the moment he was born to his last breath. Wyatt made a big impact on everyone he met and he never met any stranger. He always stood for what’s right even when people didn’t want to hear it.
Wyatt loved playing sports and was a natural at it. You could often see him at the gym or with many of his friends. He would call fishing “casting” because he would never catch anything. Wyatt’s friends were never really friends to him, they where more his family. He always lit up the room when he entered it.
Wyatt loved to work with his hands either welding up something or farming. He loved hunting anything. Wyatt’s heart was that of gold. He was always willing to help others and protect them.
Wyatt is preceded in death by his grandpa, Michael Cordova.
He is survived by his parents, Gilbert and Jennifer Jaramillo; brothers, Santo, Jeriko and Kolten; and sister, Kaylee; grandparents, Mary Jaramillo, Gloria Cordova, Gilbert and Gloria Mendez; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Pallbearers will be Santo Cordova-Gallegos, Marcus Rimorin, Dylan Lucero, Elias Cordova, Norman Finely II and Ryder Oldfield. Honorary pallbearers will be Sayrie Guerrera and Olivia Hurbina.
