Noah Mark Santos, a beacon of boundless love and spirited adventure, left this world too soon on January 12, 2024, following a tragic car accident in Trabuco Canyon, California. Born on November 5, 2001, in Riverside, California, Noah's journey was one marked by enthusiasm, passion, and a deep-seated concern for the wellbeing of others.
Growing up in Irvine, California, Noah's early life was characterized by a warm and nurturing environment provided by his loving parents, Mark and Reno Santos. He was a cherished brother to Ashley and Presley and a doting uncle to his niece Grace, with whom he shared a special bond, their birthdays being just a day apart. His family was the cornerstone of his existence, and the love they shared was the fuel for his adventurous spirit.
Noah's academic path saw him through the halls of Creekside High School, where he graduated with a zest for life that was as infectious as it was inspiring. He carried this zeal into his working life, working at the Hampton Inn and Suites in the dining room. There, he wasn't just an employee; he was a friend, a confidant, and a source of joy to all who worked with him. His friendship with his colleagues was a testament to his innate ability to connect with people from all walks of life.
An enthusiast of the tangible thrills life has to offer, Noah's passions were as varied as they were intense. He found solace in the roar of an engine and the blur of the passing landscape as he indulged his love for driving and the open road. Cars and speed were not just hobbies for Noah; they were a reflection of his adventurous soul. His commitment to fitness was evident to anyone who saw him at the gym, where he was a regular, channeling his energy into becoming the best version of himself.
Disneyland wasn't just a place for Noah; it was a haven of happiness where he created lasting memories with his family. His expertise and love for tequila were not just about enjoyment but a pursuit of knowledge, as he delved into the intricacies of its various types. Noah's spirit of adventure also translated into his skill as an avid skateboarder, carving through life's challenges with grace and determination.
His inquisitive mind led him down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories, where he found camaraderie among those who shared his thirst for what lies beyond the obvious. Noah was not just skilled with a joystick in his hand; he was a virtuoso of the virtual world, especially in the realm of Black Ops, where he was nothing short of amazing.
More than anything, Noah was known for his enormous heart. He was the sanctuary for friends and strangers alike, offering a home to anyone in need. His love extended to all creatures great and small, sharing his life not only with his family but also with his beloved pets.
Noah's legacy is one of love, laughter, and the relentless pursuit of passion. As a motivational speaker might say, his life was a testament to the power of living each moment with intention, embracing the journey with all its twists and turns. Noah taught us that to be loving is to be alive, to be spirited is to be free, and to be adventurous is to never have regrets.
He leaves behind a world that is infinitely better for his presence. Survived by his parents, Mark and Reno Santos, his sisters Ashley and Presley, and his treasured niece Grace, Noah's memory will be a guiding star for all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Let us carry forward the essence of Noah's spirit, embracing life with the same fervor and love that he did, each and every day. Noah Mark Santos, gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
