At 12:50 a.m. Thursday, March 14, our beloved son, brother, father and grandson Wayne Andrew "Drew" Jaramillo took one last motorcycle ride as he cruised into the loving arms of his savior Jesus. Drew is survived by his daughter Nicolette; mother Nancy and father Stephen; two brothers, his oldest brother Daniel, and his younger brother Brendon; and his fiance Danielle Jimenez. Drew is also survived by his paternal grandparents Lee and Juanita Jaramillo of Las Cruces, NM, and maternal grandparents Wayne and Loretta Jane Kirkpatrick of Tucson, Ariz., as well as many uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. In addition to the fact that Drew was a professional motorcycle stunt rider, he was also a RC aircraft pilot, rally car driver, artist, inventor, unicycle rider, saxophone, accordion, and bagpipe player, skateboarder, BMX rider, hobby brewer and gardener. He was also a successful business owner of AAA Best Carpet Cleaning. Drew was revered by all who rode alongside him in the local and national community. He also took pride in mentoring and sharing the knowledge of his passions. With the excitement and energy Drew lived by, he will be remembered as a loving son, brother and father. He enjoyed sharing his kind spirit, giving heart and willingness to do anything for anyone. In addition, regardless of what was done or said, Drew never held a grudge and was always forgiving. Through Drew's many trials in life, he was always grateful to his mom, dad and family who always believed in him and shared his dreams. Many condolences have been shared by hundreds of friends locally with one common sentiment, "R.I.P.-Ride in Paradise." As Drew would say, "Everybody dies, but not everybody lives." Visitation will be held on Thursday March 21,2013 from 5-7 p.m. with a rosary to follow at 7 p.m. Funeral mass will be held on Friday March 22, 2013 at 10 a.m. with cremation to follow. The services will be held at Holy Cross Catholic Church, 1327 N. Miranda, Las Cruces, NM. Arrangements are with La Paz-Grahams Funeral Home. To send condolences, go to http://www.lapaz-grahams.com/.

When I was 8 years old, my mom rented a building from Drew’s dad... and Drew used to visit the shop because he had a crush on my mom at the time, and would ride his bike in the dirt across the street. Every time I drive his memorial on Solano I think about it and I cry. I didn’t get to know him for very long. And I’m 17 now, and I miss him a lot. I hope, for once, that heaven might actually be real so I can say he looks down on me.

The Crossing
We cross through when we enter this life, and we cross through when we exit this life. But, it's the time in between that matters. For that is the place where we create our dreams. Your life's dreams will be remembered by all who crossed paths with you. In the never ending life that we are part of Yassassin.

Andrew knows that his dreams will never end. He's just going to have to create them in a different place, in a different time. For our dreams never end. They will go on forever and ever. Andrew told me he saw the afterlife. I hope and pray that it was true. May your journey be onward, upward, and Godward.

One of God's greatest gifts to us is the Memory Bank and the ability to visit it when ever we want and you my dear have filled many of those Memory Banks so you will live on here thru every ones who's path you crossed. Lord, wrap your arms around his family especially his Father, Mother, Daughter and hold them tight while they go thru the toughest time of their lives.. You are probably burning up the streets of gold in Heaven with a set of wheels like non other.. God be with all and bring them healing ..

Fallen Riders Prayer
Precious Heavenly Father, as I leave this earth today; I thank you for the freedom of riding everyday.  I thank you for the wonderful times I experienced on the road.Caught in the rain, enjoying the wind, my life could not be sold. Lord help my friends and family know I did as destined to. Riding, clowning, having fun are the things that carried me thru...I lived the life of a rider, until the day I died a child of God, a friend of all and a man that loved to ride!
R.I.P.........Gone But Never Forgotten

My condolences to the Jaramaillo family. My children were a big part of Drew's life. The night he passed, he left a big void in their lives and in their hearts. Especially in that of my son Michael. I pray your family will find comfort in the Lord and in all your memories of Drew. May he Rest in Peace! God Bless!
