We are all here to honor the life of our beloved Chechito. He was born Sergio Perez, May 15, 2002. We nicknamed him Chechito and later shortened it to just “Chito.” He gave us two options “Call me “Chito” or “Papi.” Chito was born at Banner Desert Hospital at 9:39 PM. Our Chito passed away too soon at the age of 19, on November 5, 2021. Those are two dates that will never be forgotten. Two different dates that have changed our lives forever.
Our Papi was fresh out of Highschool. He had just graduated on May 20, 2021 and was working towards continuing his Education in Automotives. His dream was to work on sports cars and to have one of his own. He knew his cars like no other and would always say his dream car was a Skyline GTR. Our Chito loved cars but he also had a passion for the outdoors. He would spend his days outside hiking, biking, swimming and exploring the outdoors. He would volunteer with his Aunt picking up trash outside while hiking trails or visiting parks because that’s how much he loved nature. He also loved Animals. His very first pet was a Kitten at just a few months old!
Our Chito had a passion for cooking, especially baking pastries. Following his dad Sergio’s footsteps, he began to have a passion for Culinary Arts. He attended the East Valley Institute of Technology, where he studied Culinary Arts. Chito had a sweet tooth and enjoyed baking cakes, cake pops and cookies. We would all joke around and call him “Cookie Monster” because he would eat so many!
He also really loved music and would listen to it really loud. He loved music so much, he remixed and made a few songs himself. He had so many hobbies and interest that it’s hard to say it all on paper. He wasn’t afraid to try new things and that is something we all admired about him. He loved traveling and exploring new places. He wanted to experience his life to the fullest. Our Chito was the oldest of four children. He had three sisters, Emily, Alyssa and Zoey. Being a big brother came with a lot of responsibilities but nothing Chito couldn’t handle. He always made time for everyone in his life and never excluded anyone. He made sure to always make everyone in his life feel so loved. So, let us take this time to honor this amazing young man.
Our Chito will live on through our hearts, our stories and our memories. You are all welcomed to come join us Celebrate the life of our Papi. We will hold a Memorial Service for Chito on November 13, 2021 at Mountain View Funeral Home & Cemetery. 7900 East Main Street. Mesa, Arizona. Let us honor his legacy together. Rest in Peace Papi. Your family and friends love you now and always.
