Ariel Fernando Arellano

July 28, 1996 — April 8, 2019

Nando was born in Kennewick, Washington on July 28, 1996, to Kristie Garcia and Trinidad Escobar Arellano. His family moved when he was young to Brigham City, Utah where he was raised. He grew up in a large family with four brothers and three sisters. He graduated from Dale Young Community High School in 2014.

His hobbies were collecting Pokémon cards, and playing video games with his brother. He also enjoyed walking, collecting rocks, reading and meditating. He truly loved spending time with his family and he was a special soul who wanted to help anyone in need. His goals were to travel the states and help as many as he could. Nando had a passion for life! As his family, we express our gratitude to the many friends in Idaho, Utah, Washington and Arizona.
