I remember when we were in art class and I had the yearbook camera to take pictures I’d come in and you would take it away and walk around class and take pictures of everyone and wouldn’t take no for an answer💕. But I know for sure that I’m gonna miss you more and more and I’m definitely gonna miss making your coffee when you came to my job so every mocha iced coffee I make I will always remember you. Fly high Octavio❤️ and paint a beautiful sky one day for me to take a picture of📸

This is so heartbreaking. I just don't know what to say. My son Kobe & Octavio were friends. I would see Octavio when he was with Kobe, and after school most days when i would pick up my younger sons. He and Kobe were always headed in the woods to hunt hogs or doing something outside, just being boys. Octavio always greeted me with a smile and he was always very respectful. My heart goes out to the family and all of his friends that will no longer enjoy time with him. May God bless you all, and know that you are all in my Prayers. RIP young man. Forever young. I know your fishing and hunting with the Big Man.

Octavio you will surely be missed! I was Octavio’s 6th grade Science Teacher. I remember him being a silly, funny and full of life pre-teen boy! He sometimes made me crazy in class as most 6th grade boys do but he was always fun loving, and well-mannered! He could always make me laugh and smile and in my book that is the best compliment a teacher can give a student. I also saw him in the hallway or cafeteria often as he went through middle school and into high school! He always had a big smile and “hello, how are you”. I will fondly remember him always! My prayers and thoughts go out to his family and all those he loved and loved him! RIP Octavio!

Every time I think about Octavio ,I can see him and Christian coming up and telling us about going fishing or how they were going to his house to hunt. I don’t think they did much hunting because they couldn’t be quiet long enough always joking and laughing. It breaks my heart over and over to think about such a young life lost. He will be missed dearly by many. I pray for peace and healing for his dearest family and friends. I haven’t been able to find the words to say just tears. Rest In Peace sweet child. You are loved and will be remembered always 💙

Octavio was like a son to me. Him along with all of my sons friends always called me mama. I will always remember all the times I had a house and yard full of kids on the weekends. Octavio was always so polite, respectful and caring. He will always carry a special place in my heart. He is truely missed and is loved by so many. His last words to me were, "I love you mama, see you later". Octavio, I love you too and you bet i will see you again. Rest is peace, I love you.

I am a cafeteria worker at Central Heights. Octavio was one of our favorite kiddos. He was a hard worker and had many dreams that he would share with us. We would encourage him to keep pushing towards those goals and dreams. We told him to not give up and get that GED... he said that he would. Octavio brought us donuts to the school the week we got out for spring break he said it was because he missed us and was thinking of us. Loved his smile and outgoing personality.. this hurts me so bad because whenever we would see each other we would hold a conversation and I saw him in Wal mart that Tuesday or Wednesday before he passed and did not say anything to him because he was in another conversation...smh if I could just turn back the hands of time. I would have made it my business to say hello... you will be forever in my heart young man!!! CONTINUED PRAYERS for all family and friends!!!!
