Obituary for Donny Aguiar de Melo

Donny Aguiar de Melo
February 28, 1977-February 7, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Donny Aguiar de Melo announces he has passed away at the age of 46, after a long hard-fought battle from cancer.

Donny left this earth a day after his father, Don Slade, who passed away on February 6, 2024. Donny is also predeceased by his birth father, Silvestre de Melo, who had passed on October 20, 2003. May they rest in peace together and look over us all.

Donny is survived by his children Whitney, Preston, and Deon; his mother Gilda, and sisters Susana (Adolfo), Melissa (Mark), and Amanda (Daniel); his nieces Sydney (Dylan), Anika, Adessa, his nephew Nicolas, and great-nephew Deakin, along with countless other family members and friends who will miss him dearly.

Donny filled the room with his presence, laughter, magic tricks, jokes, and most of all his big heart. Despite his hardships and struggles, he had the kindest soul and loved deeply. He strived to put a smile on everyone's face and share a laugh. He would say his greatest achievement was being a father. Till the end, it was his children he cherished most. Let us take from him to love what we have before life teaches you to love what you lost. Let us all carry him in our hearts until we meet again.
