December 22, 1998 – April 28, 2022

Daniel Alonso Chavez, born December 22, 1998, unexpectedly passed away on April 28, 2022. Daniel was a long standing local of Summit County and a graduate of Snowy Peaks High School.

Whether you knew him his entire life, or even briefly, you were privileged to experience his unforgettable smile, vivacious personality, deep loyalty, and infectious, joy-filled laugh. He was a hard worker, enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and loved to help others. He is gone too soon, and his loss is deeply felt by his entire community.

Daniel was preceded in death by his mother, Martha Leyva De Chavez; and his grandparents, Fransisco Chavez Rico and Guadalupe Ochoa De Chavez.

He is survived by his father, Alonso Chavez; his brother, Ivan Chavez; his grandparents, Margarito Leyva Granado and Edwiges Villa De Leyva; along with numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins. And this is only the beginning of those who love and miss him.

Visitation will be held at Our Lady of Peace, on Sunday, May 8, 2022 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm.
