Forever loved and missed! Father, grandfather, uncle, brother and friend, Albert Richard De Aragon passed away on July 14, 2007, peacefully and far too unexpectedly of colon cancer at the age of 72.

Al was born Feb. 7, 1935, in Los Angeles to Albert Sr. and Lupe De Aragon. He was raised and graduated through his school years in San Francisco. He married and had three children. In 1969, he moved his family from the Bay Area to beautiful Lake Tahoe, in search of a more wholesome life. Al started De Aragon Maintenance of Lake Tahoe, participated in the Optimist Club and was very dedicated to his family, friends and clientele. Eight years ago Al relocated to Reno.

Al was known as a positive, friendly and respectful man. Family was most important to him; he loved cooking and was an avid reader on health. Al had a unique way about him that made people feel at ease with his sense of humor and easy spirit.

Al is survived by his brother, Leo De Aragon and his wife Norma; sister, Cecilia Belluomini and her husband Tom; sister, Laurie Cox; ex-wife and best friend Joan Wilson; son, Bruce De Aragon, wife Anita and grandchildren Cameron and Muriel; daughter, Robin Hunt, husband Curtis and grandchildren Emily and Spencer; son, Blaire De Aragon, wife Renee and grandchildren Jessica and Nicholas. There are many more loving nieces, nephews and extended family members who will miss his honoring presents.

A celebration of Al’s life will be held at Corpus Christi Church at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16, 2007,, at 905 West Lake Blvd., Tahoe City.

We love you, Granddaddy!
