Santiago Alvarado Memorial Fund

On January 4th, tragedy struck the Alvarado family when 35-year-old Santiago Alvarado passed away. He is leaving behind a loving and caring family having been a wonderful husband to Cheyenne and an amazing Father to Mia, Ryan, and Ivy.

Santiago was loving, a mentor and a very hard worker who touched the lives of those around him with his smile and eagerness to help. Growing up, he worked many jobs to support his mother and siblings. He worked 8-12 hours a day, often missing meals and hours of sleep. On June 20th, 2017 he was diagnosed with duodenal liver cancer. He fought for 7 months, going through many body transitions, until cancer won the battle. He taught his children to be hardworking and to strive for their dreams no matter what anyone says. Santiago always worked hard to help support his family and friends and would not hesitate to help them when in need. He will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him and especially missed by the loved ones he has left behind.

This memorial fund is going directly to Santiago's family to help pay for not only the unexpected final expenses and financial hardship the family is now facing during this tragic time but also to help support the growth of the living legacy Santiago has left behind.

Our family deeply thanks you for your generosity and support of his wife Cheyenne and thier Children!
