Obituary of Donne M. Bagaloyos

Donne Bagaloyos, a deeply adored son, brother, and friend, died Monday, September 3, 2018 at the UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco from complications following a heart transplant surgery. He was 27. Despite the discovery of a heart condition in March of 2018, Donne never lost spirit or strength to live his life to its fullest potential. Instead, he was filled with hope and focus. Donne worked alongside his father in a warehouse at West Marine in Hollister.

Donne’s impact on those he loved will be the legacy he leaves behind. The lives of his family and friends were deeply touched and changed by his contagious faith in everyone, his unfathomable enthusiasm, his transcendent empathy and compassion, and his relentless love of others.

Survivors include: his parents, Danilo and Elena Bagaloyos; his sister, Grace Zavala; his brother, Denzel Bagaloyos; his brother in law, Antonio Zavala; his niece, Camryn Zavala; his nephews, Gabriel Zavala and Jordan Bagaloyos; along with the family and friends whose lives are forever changed by his unwavering kindness.

His memory is a blessing to us all.


The Broken Chain
 By Ron Tranmer

We knew little the day that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we’ll do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories.
Your love is still our guide
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.
