Selvin Gustavo Pacheco-Padilla

December 25, 1990 - September 9, 2019

Selvin Gustavo Pacheco-Padilla, 28, was born December 25, 1990 to María Antonia Padilla Peralta and José Daniel Pacheco in Honduras.

Selvin greatly enjoyed playing FIFA on the PlayStation. His shouts, laughter and exclamations made everyone laugh and occasionally jump. Mr. Pacheco-Padilla was fiercely loyal to the Madrid soccer team, and nothing in the world made him happier than seeing them win and become champions.

When Selvin wasn’t laughing and gaming, he was creating. He liked to write, and though he was not one to show off his work, his family fondly recalls his dedication to his work and they reminisce about why he never showed his work – with the amount of love and joy he spread, his words could have only been just that. His favorite color in the whole world was red.

Left to miss Selvin G. Pacheco-Padilla is his mother, Maria and father José, his devoted brother José Daniel Padilla-Pacheco, his uncle Olduvi Padilla, his best friends Kevin Duran and Christian Guillen and a host of his family and friends.

Selvin attended Saint Carmen’s Church in Harpersville for many years.

Selvin is safe in the arms of God and he runs after soccer balls, rests and dreams peacefully in the evergreen fields of Heaven.

In lieu of flowers, Selvin Pacheco-Padilla’s kind family asks for aid in this sudden and tumultuous time to send Selvin home to Honduras to see his family, his mother and father, one more time. Any amount is deeply appreciated and the family extends their hand in thanks to you for your kindness. Please consider donating HERE to their cause.
