Sorrow reached its deepest on July 13, 2020 when Davan's loss came so suddenly. Our little Davanisky entered this earthly world to Alonso Mendoza and Linda Perales on March 24th, 1999 in Hobbs, NM. During his childhood he found contentment in earth's little creatures, greeting new people with a hand shake, and spending time with his brothers and cousins. Through his adolescence he found contentment in "Hike it and Spike It" and Gus Macker tournaments, swimming with his friends, protecting kids who were bullied in school, wrestling with his sister, enjoying his gramma Tomasa's fideo and Abuela Bertha's chorizo and egg burritos. He will be remembered for his sensitivity and compassion when it came to matters of the heart. He could be counted on to stand by your side when others would not. He also gave generously and had an upbeat and vibrant personality and charisma. . "He spoke truth!" Our beloved "Dabz" "Davanator" "Fideo" "davansky" and "Bobo" will be missed by numerous family and friends. He was loved by many!
