Celestino Deboe

March 13, 1984 — November 8, 2022

Celestino (Tino) James DeBoe, age 38, passed away November 8th, 2022 following a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

He leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his family and friends who were always entertained by his stories and sense of humor.

Born March 13, 1984 in Salt Lake City Utah he was the son of James Stanley DeBoe of Salt Lake City, Utah and Sally “Celeste” Ann Aragon of Grand Junction Colorado.

Tino attended Central High School in Grand Junction, Colorado where he began to express his love for music by being part of the marching band playing the saxophone.

Tino worked various jobs starting at the early age of 14 with a paper route and which also included owning his own business Streetz and Beatz where despite his disabilities he proudly sold  urban wear, jewelry and hats.

Tino attended Junction Community Church and was baptized on Easter Sunday in 2019 at Fellowship Christian Church.

Tino was married to April Hopkins September 21, 2019.  He was a proud, caring and devoted father to her sons Darrion and Demario.

During his short time with us he made a point to help those in need who crossed his path.  Even though he had little he was generous and consistently cared for others more than himself.  He was very social and loved spending time with friends and family.  He enjoyed bringing laughter into any conversation by telling jokes. He truly brought the life to the party.  He had a love for animals.  He also loved listening to music, rooting for the Denver Broncos and he was a foodie who always had a appetite for something spicy or good barbecue.

Tino is now at peace joining his sister Andrea, Grandmother’s  Mary Ann Cisneros and Urebia “Pam” Bridges and the Grandfather he was named after Celestino E. Aragon.

Tino is survived by his loving parents James DeBoe (Shauna) and Sally Aragon. Siblings Monique, Tiffany, Delores, Ariel, Langston (Chris), and James Jr “JoJo". Several nieces and nephews, and one great-niece, all of whom he adored.
