Fausto Delgado

Obituary Condolences

Fausto Delgado Feb. 6, 1997-Nov. 12, 2013 Resident of Richmond, CA Fausto Delgado was born in Veracruz, Mexico. He came to the US with his family, as an early age. He is described by those who knew him well as "extraordinary, smart, an independent thinker, funny, talented," who had amazing dreams and plans. Fausto has left us, suddenly, inexplicably, heartbreakingly, at the age of sixteen. He leaves behind a loving family; Zenaida, Geroniomo, and his three brothers, Oswaldo, Geronimo and Adrian, and many relatives who cherished every picture and accomplishment of his, from afar. He was an enchantingly cute boy, with a great zeal for learning. Fausto was Deaf and learned American sign language at the age of seven. His ravenous hunger for learning; specifically, that of acquiring language, was intense and remarkable to be witess. One early teacher said of him, that it felt like such an honor and unique experience to teach him that she felt she should be paying for the privilege rather than being paid for it. Always interested in film, Fausto grew to be a young film-maker, an artist, a cynic, honor roll student and a loyal friend with a unique sense of humor. He repeatedly made his family proud of him. He was full of plans for making a variety of movies, according to his dear friend Ana, and had a new plan of starting a club to teach the hearing kids sign language at his school. Fausto will be leave an unfathomably deep hole in the hearts of his close friends, his school community, and the Deaf community; (both who did know him and the many who would have loved to know him,) and of course his large, dear family, both in the US and VeraCruz, Mexico. We will never forget Fausto and his rich contribution to all of our lives. We will never be the same, having known him. but we will always be better for it. Fausto Delgado; a beautiful boy who delighted all who met him, and then later; a complex, handsome teenager. An intelligent soul-searcher who sought peace outside of all we could and wanted to offer him. Fausto's life will be honored at St Mark's Catholic Church in Richmond. In lieu of flowers, the needs of the family could be considered. Contributions can be made to Services at St Mark's Catholic Church, 159 Harbour Way South, Richmond, CA 94804 Wednesday Nov. 20, 2013 Viewing 2:30 Rosary 3:30, Mass 4:00pm
