Paying Tribute to Ismael Mazariegos Barreda

We announce with extreme sadness and heartbreak that the body of 32-year-old Ismael Mazariegos Barreda was found this Monday, July 20th in Lake Ballinger after he and his family were swimming on the lake on Sunday, July 19th and Ismael never returned to shore. Ismael touched many lives, he was an outstanding father to his 11-year-old son Arnol, a wonderful husband, brother, and a doting son.

Ismael and his family are from Siguatepeque Comayagua in Honduras and they would like to send his body back to his hometown where he may be buried with his family members. The family is shocked and saddened by his loss and is unfortunately not financially prepared for the costs as Ismael's death was unexpected. We are raising money in order to cover the cost of the funeral expenses and the body repatriation of Ismael to Honduras.

If you knew Ismael, you'd know how he touched the lives of those around him. It is our turn to give back and help the Mazariegos Barreda family. Thank you so much for your help!

Ismael tocó muchas vidas, fue un padre excepcional para su hijo Arnol de 11 años, un esposo maravilloso, un buen hermano y un hijo cariñoso.


Ismael y su familia son de Siguatepeque Comayagua en Honduras y les gustaría enviar su cuerpo de regreso a su ciudad natal donde pueda ser sepultado con los miembros de su familia. Su familia está conmocionada y entristecida por su pérdida, desafortunadamente no están preparados financieramente para los costos ya que la muerte de Ismael fue inesperada.
