Rogelio Jr. is preceded in death by his Grandfather Saturnino Rios Cantu Jr., his uncle Saturnino Cantu III, and his niece Nylah Jade Ortiz.
RJ was loving, compassionate and had a heart of gold. He often thought of others before himself. As a child, he was exuberant, and a risk taker and he never complained or asked for much growing up. He was kind, considerate and would be the one you could depend on. RJ was one who had big dreams and a mind full of determination.
Most would say he was shy, a gentle giant. His mom and dad would simply know him as their “son”. Someone who made a mark in this world and left it too soon.
A viewing will be available to the public at East Haven Funeral Home from December 26 through 27 through the hours of 11am to 8pm. Cremation will take place after.
“But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.”
