Funeral Expense for Val Dino

Early this morning (November 14th, 2019), we received news of a tragic loss that our sweet Val Dino had passed away in a car accident early in the morning in San Marcos.  It is a true tragedy that someone as amazing as Val could be taken from this world so quickly.  Illusionist, magician, ridiculously talented balloon artist are just some of the hats you wore. You were also a dedicated son and wonderful brother. 

Val was an amazing person, kind and generous and full of life. Your generosity and love for your City and the children in  your community will forever sit with me. 

Val's family needs all of our support, love, positive energy and prayers. We are asking for donations to help cover funeral costs. Please keep the Valdez Family in your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time. 

From Ben Abbott  - Val and I always did the dumbest stuff just to put a smile on people faces. We didn't care how bad we embarrassed ourselves. My obsession for hot dogs was the best. We couldn't go anywhere without someone bringing it up and we loved it. You couldn't say the word "hot dog" around us without laughing. Val was more then a friend to me. He was family. We mixed our friendship with business and tried our best to help make the world a better place. We didn't care about the money. We cared about the smiles. Although he is gone there is no way anyone can forget him. I will also remember how our last conversation was in fact about hot dogs. RIP


My name is Soo Teal and Val has been my friend for over 8 years. I loved him dearly and his family is my family. I will be assisting Lisa (Val's sister) and his family during this difficult time. All funds will go directly to Val's family and any expenses they need help with.
