Jonathan Andrew Cantu Jr, ‘Nito’, age 22, of Chandler, Arizona passed away Wednesday, February 17, 2021. He graduated from Sun Valley High School in 2018. Jonathan was a man of faith. He always prayed for his family and friends. He always put others first by asking for prayers when they were in need. Jonathan was full of life and laughter, he always made you laugh and smile. Anyone who knew him felt his uplifting spirit because of his kindness and relentless giving heart. Jonathan’s bear hugs were unforgettable. You were blessed to receive one. No matter the occasion or person Jonathan was always respectful to everyone he encountered.
Jonathan talked about family and friends wanting there to be unity. He would always say “God is good all the time”, and then he would wait for his siblings to respond with “All the time, God is good”. When you think of Jonathan think of love, love others, be kind always, and always be willing to help someone, do this with all your heart.
