To all the friends and family of Francisco Steffano Sandoval, Jr, the Sandoval, Briseno, Hodges, Mueller, and Nelson families would like to let everybody know that their beloved Lil' Kiko, was found this morning sleeping peacefully in his bed. Anyone that knew him was to love him for his big heart, quirky sense of humor, intelligence, and even though he very rarely expressed it out loud, he truly believed in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is preceded by his father Francisco Sandoval, Sr. (Barbara Sandoval); his mother Tammy Briseno (Rudy Briseno); sister Faustina (Sandoval) Mueller (William Mueller); Fraternal Grandmother & Grandfather Sarah (Grammy) Sandoval; (Deceased) Grampy Patrick R. Sandoval, Sr.; Maternal Grandparents Ben & Bernice Hodges (Nana & Pampo); & Girlfriend of 7 years Megan Nelson, as well as his Uncle Patrick R. Sandoval, Jr., (Laurie Shanoski-Sandoval). Kiko also leaves behind many other siblings and family members who will dearly miss him everyday and every night. May God Bless us all that knew such a very wise, beautifully talented young man. It is far too soon, however, the reason may not be clear, but we as a family pray for his safe journey home. Updates for services will be posted as soon as arrangements have been made. In lieu of flowers or gifts, Lil' KIko would have appreciated everyone to love and support one another no matter the circumstance.
