Diego was an artistic soul who loved to have fun and be active. He was a great artist with an incredible imagination. He made friends everywhere he went with his contagious laughter and sense of humor. He genuinely loved his family and friends and would always be happy to lend a helping hand. He was a wonderful son and the best older brother anyone could ask for. His laugh, happy soul, and embrace will be dearly missed.
