Michael Jacob Urioste III
July 23, 1998 - February 11, 2023
Michael was a son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, boyfriend, and amazing friend. Michael was a talented athlete who excelled in Motocross, Martial Arts, and loved playing basketball. Michael was an avid sports fanatic. He loved watching the Las Vegas Raiders football team, the Boston Celtics basketball team and the New York Yankees baseball team. You could always know on any given night or weekend that he would be at home cheering on his favorite teams screaming at the television on each and every play as if he had a front row seat at the stadium. A true fan of the games! His hobbies include weightlifting, gaming, riding his Harley and being a comedian amongst his family and friends. A quote that was instilled in Michael and he fiercely lived by was "Never Back Down", especially when it came to his family and friends. A perfect example of this was his last act which was to sacrifice his own life to protect another.
Michael is survived by his mother, Evette De Soto (Leroy Armijo); father, Michael Urioste, Jr, (Mystique Vigil); step-mother, Michelle Dennison; sisters, Lina and Miah Urioste; step-siblings, Brittany Armijo, Kassandra Armijo, and Anthony Armijo; grandparents, Eloy De Soto, Gina De Soto, Michael Urioste Sr., and Linda Urioste; aunts, Monique De Soto and Linda De Soto; uncles, Mark Urioste (Anna), and Matthew Urioste; cousins, Ariel Urioste, Aiden De Sot, Adriana Elyicio, and Cheyenne Cordova.
