Aaron Paul McDaniel, 29, of Socorro, NM passed away peacefully October 9, 2023, surrounded by the love of his family. Aaron was born in Socorro, NM on December 12, 1993, and was a lifelong resident.
His favorite hobbies included being bossed around by his "Baby" Avi, spending time with his mom, who was his world, cheering on his football team Eagles, playing baseball with his brothers, Eric and Dominic and trying to skool his cousin Duda in basketball every chance he got. Aaron's contagious smile combined with his humor and goofy personality would light up any room he occupied. He was always ready to help anyone in need and would offer the shirt off his back.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents Mary and Mike Martinez and Bertha Mae McDaniel.
Aaron is survived by his mom and dad, Susan and Billy Martinez Silva; his father, Quincy McDaniel, his beautiful daughter Aviana Bustamante McDaniel who he loved more than life itself and his siblings Steven and Stephanie Silva, Roxanne and Mayra Silva, Brittany and Des Bustamante-McDaniel, Eric Silva, Dominic Silva and Alexis Montoya and Trenton McDaniel. Aaron will also be greatly missed by his numerous nieces and nephews and other family members.
Aaron loved and appreciated many people in his life but he loved his Uncle Leo most for always standing by his side.
A holy rosary and funeral will take place October 20, 2023, at 9:30 am at San Miguel Catholic Church. Immediately following Aaron will be laid to rest at San Miguel Cemetery in Socorro.
Pallbearers will include Brittany McDaniel, Roxanne Silva, Steven Silva, Dominic Silva, Eric Silva, Travon Jackson and Trenton McDaniel. Aaron will be missed by all who knew and loved him, but we have faith that he is safe with our Lord and Savior and know we will see him again someday.
