When you lose someone you truly love, you gain an Angel; they will always stay with us. Our loved ones who pass on into the Kingdom of our Lord Father will live eternal life and always echo within our thoughts, our words, and deeply within our hearts. Manuel M. Aparicio, 37, passed away unexpectedly in his home in Hayward, CA. Unfortunately, there are no answers as to why it was his time or why God called him home at such a young age. Although, he left us behind and we are heartbroken at the loss of his beautiful soul, contagious smile and hopeful spirit, Manuel was a child of God and he never feared death. He knew that the gates to Heaven would open and welcome him into God’s Glory. He was preceded in death by his father, Joseph Aparicio and his brother, Alonso Rincon. We know that he was embraced with love while meeting them in heaven.

Manuel is survived and lovingly remembered by his mother Carmen Aparicio; his two beautiful daughters, Anahlia and Avelina Aparicio. He will be forever remembered by his sisters, Adrienne Rincon and Alicia Espinoza; his brother-in-law, Bryan Espinoza; and his four nephews, Anthonio and Alexander Rincon, Bryan and Nicholas Espinoza. Manuel was born January 12, 1982, in Ventura, California, to Carmen and Joseph Aparicio. As a young child, Manuel was full of wonder and was so excited when he discovered something new. He would share his new discoveries with anyone who would listen. His childhood was full of happiness and smiles. During his teenage years and young adulthood, he learned to maneuver through life by pushing forward through all the trial and tribulations that were put in his way. If life knocked him down, he would get right back up, ready to fight another day. If you knew Manuel, you loved him. He would even come across people that that didn’t like him at first, but eventually learned to give in and loved him as well. Those who were once enemies eventually became lifelong friends. He was such a loyal friend as well, standing by his friends through the extreme circumstances. He would always be the first to accept the blame, even for situations that he had nothing to do with, he would put himself in the direct line of fire if it meant protecting his friends and family. That’s just who he was, the friend, father, son, and sibling. He was a protector to those he loved. Manuel was fearless, bold and brave. He had no fear for consequences in both a good and bad way; he would risk himself for others and that was the ultimate sacrifice for him during his young adulthood years. His love had no limits as he had the biggest heart. Through all of life’s tests and during his struggles, God never gave up on him; God had a plan for his life. Each obstacle Manuel overcame, gave him the strength to become the Man we knew and loved today. Manuel attended Santa Paula High School. He continued his education at Santa Barbara College while working as a Journeyman Plumber in pursuit of obtaining Master Plumber stature. Manuel was a handy man of all sorts. He was always the first person you’d call if you had a problem and if he didn’t know how to fix it he would research and figure out how and conquer each task. He always had that smile when he found the impossible ways to do almost anything. One of his greatest passions was Music. He loved music so much and he would always find a way to turn any song lyric into a life lesson and apply it to any situation. It seemed as if each song was written just for him in whatever situation he was dealing with, whether it be love, or heartbreak and everything life gives us in between. It was one of the many talents he had, that and always being able to make anyone smile or laugh even at their darkest times and moments in life. Manuel was charismatic, charming and had this energy that made others naturally be drawn to him, especially women :) He had a prophecy spoken upon him at a young age that he had a calling to save and change the lives of those who needed guidance into God’s Light, Love, and Grace. As a teenager he tried to run from his calling, but we all know you cannot hide from God. He had to go through the path that life had for him and carry so much on himself while growing up just to learn as an adult that he didn’t need to do everything on his own and that God was there by him the entire time throughout his tough times waiting for him to turn to and call upon him to ask for help and until he learned to surrender completely to God is when he found the incomparable love that God has waiting for all of us. Manuel’s life was a beautiful testimony and nothing he did would ever compare to the pride he had in becoming a father. Manuel used to say, “I always wanted a son, but God knew that what I really needed was my two daughters, because with them I found True Love”.

His two daughters, Ani & Lina, gave him so much happiness, love, and they were always his main reason to keep going. They were his two reasons to get up after being knocked down, his reasons to better himself and be better for them. They were his pride and joy, and he would always go the distance for them no matter the cost as long as they knew he loved them. Everyday, no matter the situation he always told them how much he loved them, there’s not a day that he talked to them that he wouldn’t express his pride and love for them. He will continue to love and protect them as their Guardian Angel; he will be a constant to them just as the Sun is to the day and the Stars are to the night sky because nothing on this earth or the heavens can keep him away from his girls. Manuel made an impact to so many lives, and we know he will continue to change lives through his death. He may not be with us physically, but he is now fighting the spiritual battles for us in the heavens always protecting us and always being Manuel.

Growing up as a kid I alway wanted an older brother. I would always tell my parents, why couldn't you have a son first. Then I met my best friend who had one. From the day I met Manuel he was exactly how I wished my older brother would have been if I had one. He was so welcoming, playful, protective and annoying at times lol just as siblings are in nature. Manuel let me experience what it's like to have a loving big brother. It really was a dream coming true.
Thank you so much for that Manuel. I wish I had let you know what that meant to me.

The things I remember most about Manuel was how he was always willing to help me out anytime I needed it, whether I would ask him to or not. He had such a big heart....His sense of humor, he always made me laugh and his smile would brighten up any room.
Even though I will miss him tremendously, I am thankful to know that he is home safe with our Father in Heaven.
RIP Mijo,
Love your Nina Jo C

I always remember when you were a little boy saying something so cute when you saw the cartoon with Snaggle puss on TV. You called to your mom saying: "mommy, mommy look it, Succotash" short for the cats expression of exasperation "suffering succotash!" I always thought it was so cute at such a young age! There were so many more things I remember but I thank you for all those precious times you shared with my sons when you all were growing up. We love you and will truly miss you 💘

As I look at all these pictures and beautiful memories I can not help but tears of love coming to my eyes....
I remember what a beauty baby back then and that baby turned out becoming a true man of God 💜
I remember how much love I had for this boy and somewhat protective of him, he was like my kid just like the many nieces and nephews I feel they are my children and what an abundance of kids being as I never had any of my own...
I believe God gave me that gift of love & to have a maternal extinct; able to have that unconditional love for them all 💕
My memory of Manuel is when he was like 1 year or older & I started calling him
“The planter peanut dude” when he started stretching out his legs were long and skinny and when we would call him that he would laugh contagiously
It was a beautiful thing to see him one last time and he had the same contagious smile like my heart will always remember him with love and laughter 💜🤣
My heart goes out to you all
His amazing mama Carmen ( love u so much sis )
💕💕
His two lovely sisters Adrienne & Alicia
( and all ur handsome boys)
I’m here for you always mija’s
💕💕
And his two beautiful daughters
Ani & Lina
Hope to see u more often girls
💕💕
May God bless you all and give you all the peace in your hearts that surpasses all knowledge
Love your tia Sandy
💜💜💜💜💜 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

Manuel you always had a way of making me laugh even when I was mad at you. I always think of your mayonnaise stories or all the mustard you consumed on your tostada. You we're always the adventurous one slip and sliding Into the pool telling us cousins" like it was." I will miss you calling me Cheeto toes and listening to me all the time, even when you didn't want to listen to me. You we're like a brother to me Manuel, your daughters we're like my daughter's. We grew up laughing and knowing each other and today I know you watch over us all. You are my constant reminder that God can work out any situation any tragedy and get the glory and honor. You we're more than my cousin.I am going to miss you but I am glad you are with our heavenly father. Love you
