July 23, 1964 - February 3, 2013
Anthony Aragon was born on July 23, 1964, and passed away on February 3, 2013, of a Brain Hemorrhage/Stroke.
He was born to Anthony and Rose Marie Aragon in Pacoima, California. Rose re-married to Ronald James Hitchcock ll, who helped raise Anthony, as well as their two other children Connie Jo and Ronald James ll. Ronald and Rose moved the family to Frazier Park, California, where Anthony attended Maricopa High School where he played Varsity Football and Baseball. The family moved back to the San Fernando Valley shortly after father Ronald passed away in a car accident. Living in the city of San Fernando, Anthony continued High School at San Fernando High where he met his future wife, Rebecca Andrade.
Anthony was fascinated with cars, both fixing and restoring them. He continued on to work for all three of his Uncles in the automotive business, learning something from each one of them. With that knowledge, Anthony was able to then open his own business.
Anthony and Rebecca were married on November 24, 1984. They had four beautiful children; Kassandra, Rebecca N., Margaret, and Anthony E., and together built a beautiful life filled with wonderful memories.
Anthony was an amazing Husband, Father, Uncle, Cousin, Nephew, Brother, Son and Friend. He was very involved in all of his children's lives whether it was sports, school functions, church, or just having their friends over for a BBQ and swimming. Anthony had friends of all walks of life that love him. He loved to go camping, play golf, or just relax as he watched TV. Most of all he loved attending Lil Anthony's Baseball or Football games. He never missed one of them!
