7-21-63 to 4-10-11. Our fun loving Frankie has gone but is not forgotten. He passed away April 10, 2011. Frankie was born July 21, 1963 to Kiko Aragon and Gloria Rodriguez. He had two younger brothers, Paul and Anthony Aragon, with whom he shared a passion for boxing. He loved them very much. He was raised happily and lovingly by his grama and grandpo, Jake and Gertrude Aragon, with what was to him his “little sister” Monica — whom he protected as a child and knew he could turn to for advise and comfort whenever he needed.
Tio Clem and Tia Tessie began his love of horses. He spent countless hours with them. He always knew he could count on them for anything.
Growing up, Frankie loved to hunt, fish, box, ride motorcycles and ride horses. As long as he was with family and friends, it was where he wanted to be.
At age 23, the joy of his life was born. Alexa Rae Aragon, whom he had with Kimm Takemori. He never expected someone could steal his heart like Alexa did. He took her everywhere he went and made sure she experienced everything he enjoyed. Frankie always said “You’ll always be Daddy’s little girl.”
In 1996, Frankie married the love of his life, Tracy Byrne and even though after nine years they divorced, they continued to bicker like a married couple. They remained the best of friends.
He was blessed with two grandchildren, whom he cherished as much as Alexa. Dejanelle, whom he couldn’t wait to teach and do with her all the things he taught Alexa. Miguel Frankie “Lil’ Frankie,” whom he was going to mold. “He was going to be the best because he would be taught by the best.”
Frankie also left a huge impression on the lives of his nieces and nephews. He meant so much to each of them.
He is survived by daughter Alexa Aragon (Matthew Hill); grandchildren Dejanelle & Miguel Frankie Guzman; father Francisco “Kiko” Aragon; mother Gloria Rodriguez Martinez (Leo), brother Paul Aragon; grandparents Jake and Gertrude Aragon; aunt Tessie (Joe) Santistevan; sister Monica (Jose) Lozano and Rudy Aragon; special friend Tracy Aragon.
He is preceded in death by brother Anthony Aragon; uncles Anthony E. Aragon, Eddie R. Aragon, Clemaco Chavez, Craig Rodriguez and Roberto F. Aragon; grandparents Medardo and Elaisa Rodriguez; in-laws Stan and Karen Edgeman.
