Rafael Lee Harold Reina, 25, of Palmdale, California, was granted his angel wings on February 7th 2017. Not only was he our baby brother, he was a son, an Uncle a grandson, a cousin and a friend to SO SO many.
Our brothers life would seem to short to many, but those who where touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. The pain of losing our brother is unbearable and we will miss him for eternity. That cute boyish smile and funny young man he was, will live on in our memories and continue to bring joy to or family.
Rafael enjoyed the outdoors and was definitely the most adventurous of his siblings. Nothing could stop Rafael, he loved to be around friends laughing and wearing a smile on his face. He was a loving and caring person, devoted son and friend, always thinking of others first. “To know him was to love him.”
Rafael brought so much joy to all of our lives. We fill forever miss your voice, smile, smell, hugs, jokes and how you made us all feel and most importantly your love. We feel incredibly blessed that the Heavenly Father gave you to us for 25 amazing years and we will never fully understand why he took you from us so soon. The hardest part isn’t losing you, its learning to live without you. We love you and miss you so much.
Rafael Lee Harold Reina is survived by his loving parents, Jose and Suzann Reina of Palmdale, California; sister Analisa Angelson, Merlisa Danihel and Michaela Bless ; brother Felipe Reina and Matthew Geddes; brother in laws Danny Angelson and Tim Danihel; grandparents Norma Oppenheim, David Keenan and Guillermina Sotelo.
