Paul Ortega Jr. Obituary
PAUL ANTHONY ORTEGA, JR.
On October 15, 2017, Paul Anthony Ortega Jr. passed into the hands of the Lord surrounded by family while hundreds of his friends were gathered in prayer. Paul was born on March 1, 2003 in Phoenix, Arizona. He attended Juan Diego Catholic High School where he was known and loved by many. From the time he could walk and talk on his own, he was getting to know people. He had a way with people; everyone loved him as soon as they met him. He was always open, friendly and cheerful, bringing many people an abundance of joy. Most of his time was spent doing something, whether it was on the football field, making music on the guitar, piano or cajon, singing or acting on a stage, he made sure that he stayed involved in the world around him. He was an avid Boy Scout and outdoorsman.
Paul is survived by his mother, Virginia Ortega; father, Paul Ortega; sister, Rosalie; many aunts, uncles, and cousins; and his grandparents. He was loved very dearly by everyone he met, and will be missed.
