Aldo Josue Ruiz
December 25, 1992 – August 28, 2020
On Friday, August 28, 2020, Aldo Josue Ruiz, loving father of three children, passed away at the age of 27. Born on the 25th of December, 1992, he lived the majority of his life in Yakima WA, spending only a couple of years living in Huntington Beach CA, where he worked as the Quality Control Specialist for a manufacturing company that made body panels for airplanes, which we were all very proud of. Loved by many, he was known for being a very clever and witty person with a very powerful presence, friendly to all those he knew, and would break the ice with those he didn’t. He was very funny and charismatic, some of the few reasons people gravitated towards him. Aldo always had a drive to be the best at whatever it was that he was currently working in or pursuing. If he was stacking boxes in a warehouse, he wanted to be the best box stacker in the place, and that same drive extended into his personal life. He wanted to be the best parent to his kids that he could possibly be, and every decision he made was for the betterment of his family. It will forever be comforting knowing that a piece of him will live on in his children, who, happily enough, already display elements similar to those of some of his more unique characteristics. Aldo loved dressing up for any occasion. He had an abundant fondness for shoes and apparel. Anyone who knew him would attest to that. He liked collecting Jordans especially, and also liked collecting vintage sports jerseys, mainly but not limited to the Seahawks and other Seattle based sports teams. Being the charming person that he was, he would never fail to put a smile on your face even on your gloomiest day. He’d make you laugh with his quick witted remarks and affiliative sense of humor. He was there for you when you called on him, whether it was a personal favor or just simply an ear for you to vent to, he’d be there. In the end, anyone who ever experienced a moment with him, or shared a connection, will always be family to him. May he lay comfortably, may the pain of his absence subside, may his memory live on in the deep recesses of our hearts, and most of all, may he forever rest in peace.
