Angel was born in June 17, 1954 in Guatemala to Rafael Paniagua Betancourt and Angela de Paniagua Garcia. From Guatemala he moved to Los Angeles, but ultimately located in Ottawa, Ontario in 1987. Angel was a devoted father, grandfather and husband, dedicated to spending time with his family until he passed. Angel’s passion in life was spending time with his family, loved ones and friends. When he was younger, he enjoyed the outdoors, always taking his friends and family camping or taking his family on road trips all across Canada. He enjoyed his trips to Algonquin Park and the Rideau River, where he spent hours fishing. Later in his life, he enjoyed a quieter life, preferring instead to take in a movie with his children or to cook chicharon for his family. He was a reliable family man, always offering to help his family, from building decks to babysitting the dogs.
A funeral is scheduled for June 20th, 2015 at 11am with a reception to follow at 1pm. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Angel’s life.
Quisiera que el beso fuera como ave, que volara sobre el mar o cerros distantes. que volara por ciudades para llegar donde estuvieras, que ese beso pudiera acariciar tu frente o quedarse en tu mejilla un instante.
Para mi Papá Angel
