It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Oscar Aragon, 34, on Saturday, August 26, 2023.
Oscar Aragon was born on August 1, 1989, in Sinaloa, Mexico. Oscar was the first child born to Luz Alicia Aragon and Bonifacio Tenorio. From birth, he was a very social butterfly, well known for running up to any older gentlemen when out in public, calling them grandpa and holding their hand as they walked together. He spent his early childhood in Sinaloa, Mexico with his aunt Esmerelda and Grandma Elena. He moved with his family to Wendell, Idaho and grew up spending his childhood chasing frogs on his bike and buying candy from the local gas station. He spent most of his childhood with his three siblings, David and Richard Tenorio and Devika Aragon.
Oscar attended Wendell High School where he met many of his lifelong friends. After graduating from high school, he attended the College of Southern Idaho to pursue an associate in applied science as a Paramedic. During this time, he welcomed to the world his first child, Camile Tenorio, and had to change his priorities.
Oscar worked many jobs but ultimately found joy in roofing. This career also allowed him to meet many lifelong friends that shared many laughs and stories with him. Throughout his roofing career he welcomed into the world two more children, Lilliana and Marcus Tenorio. His biggest joy and pride in his life was his children. He would always brighten up when sharing stories of his children and never lost an opportunity to share them.
Oscar loved spending time with his friends goofing around. He always spread joy wherever he went. He was able to hold conversations with anyone and always found himself helping those in need whenever the opportunity arose. He enjoyed swimming in the summer and bonfire nights. He could be found on the weekends singing karaoke and playing pool. His favorite phrases always started with “see what happened was” as well as, “It’ll grow back”, and if ever assisting his sister in her constant battle of losing her personal items he would always say, “I know where it is, the last place you put it.”
Oscar is survived by his children, Camille, Lilliana, and Marcus Tenorio; his mother, Alicia Aragon and father, Bonifacio Tenorio; and his three siblings, David and Richard Tenorio and Devika Aragon.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Elena Aguiluz Ordonez, Sabas Aragon Lopez, Pedro Tenorio Vega, and Magdalena Rodriguez Avila.
A viewing will be held from 6 pm until 8pm, with a Rosary at 7 pm, Thursday, August 31, 2023 at Farnsworth Mortuary. Funeral Mass will be held at 2pm, Friday, September 1, 2023 at St. Jerome's Catholic Church, 216 2nd Ave E, Jerome. Graveside service will conclude at Jerome Cemetery.
