With great sadness, we lost a family member on Saturday, March 28, 2020. Nathan Jesus Ruiz passed away at home surrounded by close family in Flagstaff, Arizona. He was 13 years old. He was born April 1, 2006 to Erica Lopez-Ruiz.
His infectious smile, laugh and sweet innocence will be missed greatly. He touched many lives with his special gifts. Nathan enjoyed riding the yellow school bus, watching sports, eating pizza and spending time with all of his family.
We know our grandparents Alfonso and Jessie Lopez await their great-grandson with open arms in Heaven. Nathan is also preceded in his passing by Carmen Corona and Juan Ruiz. He is survived by his mother Erica Lopez-Ruiz and Adrian Ortega, sister Nevaeh Ortega, grandparents (Papa) Alfredo and (Nana) Cathy Ruiz; godparents Cynthia Lopez Ruiz, Richard Duran, Ty and Jessica Martinez and Matthew and Alicia Ruiz; also his cousins Nora, Lily, Carson and Emmett and many more cousins, uncles, aunts, and great uncles/aunts. Nathan really loved his family.
