Oscar Rivera Jr. Funeral Expenses

It is with a heavy heart that the family of Oscar Gaitan Rivera, Jr. announce his sudden passing on Sunday, September 2nd at the age of 22.

Boy (Oscar) was born May 14, 1996 in Austin, TX to Oscar and Betty Rivera. He was their only son and the youngest of 5 children. He was very much the protector of his 4 older sister's and always found a way to make them smile. He was a strong, hard-working man who never hesitated to help others. He spent his childhood playing baseball from the age of 7 through high school. He had a love for fishing, which is where he could be found when he wasn't playing ball.

He will always be remembered as a loving and caring man by his grandparents Celestino B. Rivera, Sr., Gabriel and Victoria Mendez, his parents Oscar and Betty Rivera, his sister's Norma Mendez, Victoria Santiago (Dagoberto), Maria Rivera and Linda Rivera and extended family members and friends. He will forever be remembered as the greatest uncle by his nieces Annalicia, Layla, Savannah, Jessica, Sophia, Stella and his nephew's Fernando and David.

Oscar is preceded in death by his grandmother Maria Gaitan Rivera who passed on September 2, 2007. 

In keeping with Oscar's loving spirit and passion for helping others, he was able to give the gift of life through organ donation.

My family would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. The passing of my brother was very unexpected and his funeral costs were not something we were prepared for. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated and will go towards Boy's medical, funeral and final expenses.
