Miguel Angel Prado

April 21, 2000 - August 18, 2023

Miguel Angel Prado, a beloved son, brother, and friend, passed away tragically on August 18, 2023, in Compton, California. He was born on April 21, 2000 in Lynwood, California. Miguel's life was cut short at the age of 23, but his impact on those around him will be cherished forever.

Known for his infectious smile and positive attitude, Miguel always had a way of brightening up any room he entered. Regardless of the challenges he faced, he carried himself with grace and resilience. His unwavering optimism was an inspiration to all who knew him.

One of Miguel's great passions in life was cars. He loved everything about them - from admiring their sleek designs to learning about their intricate mechanics. Miguel's enthusiasm for cars fueled his drive to excel in his career. He was ecstatic when he landed a job in the security field and was proud of himself for passing his security exam. Miguel embraced this new chapter of his life with enthusiasm and dedication.

Tragically, while returning home from work one fateful day, Miguel's life was violently taken away. It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of such a promising young soul. Miguel leaves behind a grieving family who will forever keep him alive in their hearts.

He is survived by his loving mother Maria Sanchez and devoted father Jose J. Prado. Miguel also leaves behind four siblings: Armando Molina, Javier Garcia, Jose L. Lara, and Karinna Prado. The bond between them was unbreakable, and their memories together will forever be cherished.

Miguel had always spoken fondly of his maternal grandmother Avelina Gomez De Sanchez and maternal grandfather Manuel Sanchez who both preceded him in death. Their presence in his life undoubtedly shaped the person he became, and their memory will forever be cherished.

In addition to his immediate family, Miguel leaves behind countless aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. His vibrant spirit brought joy to each family gathering, and his absence will be deeply felt by all those whose lives he touched.

A funeral service honoring Miguel's life will be held on September 20, 2023, at Forest Lawn - Long Beach in Long Beach, California. The service will commence at 2:00 PM and will serve as an opportunity for friends and family to come together to celebrate the remarkable person that Miguel was.

Miguel Angel Prado was a young man who embodied resilience, ambition, and kindness. His presence in our lives was a gift that will be profoundly missed. As we mourn his passing, let us also remember the joy he brought into our lives and keep his memory alive through the stories we share.

May Miguel's soul rest in eternal peace knowing he made a lasting impact on all those who were fortunate enough to cross paths with him.
