Donaven “Don Don” Dennis Byers, 16, of San Angelo, TX gained his Angel Wings on Thursday, March 18, 2021 as a result of an automobile accident.
Donaven was born on October 29, 2004 in San Angelo and was a sophomore at Central High School. He enjoyed playing video games and fun times with all his friends. Don Don was a precious son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, and best bud. His character and smile lit up the room and brightened the mood of everyone around him. He was a loving and compassionate individual – the light of our lives.
Donaven is survived by his parents, Hilda Carrillo and Dennis Byers of San Angelo, TX; sisters, Samantha Serrano and husband Jimmy Ahumada of San Angelo, TX and Sharmeika Byers of San Angelo, TX; brother, Louis Byers of San Angelo, TX; grandparents Sammy (Lelo) and Sarah Carrillo of San Angelo, TX and Rosalinda Ramirez of San Angelo, TX; great grandmother, Hilda Ruiz from San Angelo, TX; aunts, Marianne Archipolo of San Angelo, TX, Julie Yassen of Arlington, TX, and Michelle Krogstad of San Angelo, TX, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He is preceded in death by great grandpa, Pablo Ruiz and granny, Margaret Thomas. Donaven is loved and will be missed by the many, many friends he leaves behind.
Donaven (Chanchito), you left us too soon and so unexpectedly. Keep looking down on us as we learn to function in this life without you. Forgive us as we would rather have you here, but we are comforted knowing you are at peace and in God’s precious hands. We love you so very much, mijo. You will be in our hearts forever and all eternity, love always, Mom and Dad.
Until we meet again.

I want to offer my deepest condolences To Donaven’s family. I knew him as a sweet, shy young boy who was a wonderful dog-sitter. My dogs and I loved him, and I am heartbroken that he was taken too soon. Prayers for his parents, siblings, grandparents, great grandmother, Hilda, and everyone who loved him. Stella Soto Lasswell
