Valentino Tzigiwhaeno Rivera Obituary
Rivera, Valentino Tzigiwhaeno



Valentino Tzigiwhaeno Rivera, 8, took his place with God early morning on May 14, 2016 surrounded by loved ones in the comfort of his own home.

Valentino sustained critical injuries from a car accident and courageously fought for his life for a little over a year. He will always be remembered for his lively spirit and the way he captured other's hearts through his love for life and people. Valentino gave us eight beautiful years filled with the love, nerf guns, classic rock, and dance.

He is survived by his father and mother, George Rivera and Felicia Rosacker Rivera; brother PaaWee, sisters PoQueen and Paloma; grandparents Charles "Buddy" and Rita Rosacker, Dora Martinez; many uncles, aunts and cousins.

A viewing is planned for 3 p.m., Monday, May 16 at the Rivera residence at Pojoaque Pueblo, followed by an evening wake. The funeral mass will be 10 a.m., Tuesday, May 17 at the St. Francis Cathedral Basilica in Santa Fe, followed by a burial at the Pojoaque Pueblo cemetery.

The family requests that instead of flowers, donations be made to the Ambercare Foundation, P.O. Box 1610, Belen, N.M. 87002, or at ambercare.com, where a fund in memory of Valentino has been set up to help pediatric patients and their families.
