Michael Anthony Mendoza December 13, 1988 - April 16, 2023
From the day he was born till the day he joined God in Heaven, Michael Anthony Mendoza was the brightest guiding light for all to follow. He loved his family, friends, and his cats Norm Fatman and Mystery fiercely and wholeheartedly. An expert video gamer, his favorites were Borderlands, Gears of War, and Destiny as a hunter class guardian. He was a man of many passions that included being a food connoisseur, a fan of soccer, supporting team USA, music, especially the original hip-hop scene like Eric B and Rakim and watching movies. Some of his favorites included Leon the Professional, Star Wars, Judge Dredd, and Reservoir Dogs. There was never one like him before, and will never be another like him again.
He is survived by Mom, Selena Nunez, Father, Gary Mendoza, Brothers, Gary Mendoza (Katie) and Carlos Boneta, Grandparents, Arcelia Ward, Jennie Mendoza and John and Sylvia Nunez. Michael was preceded in death by Paul Mendoza (Tata), Tweety Mendoza (Aunt), Great Grandparents Celia and Herman Lucero, Sal Quesada and Luisa Nunez, Connie Consuelo Juarez and Uncles Junior, Martin and Greg Lucero and Baby Frankie.
He will be missed by his many family members and friends. May he walk side by side with God and soar with the angels in Heaven.
