Francisco “Cisco” Melendez

June 20, 1980 – April 5, 2010

Losing You. Our hearts still ache in sadness, And secret tears still flow, What it meant to lose you, No one will ever know. Author Unknown

Cisco was born and raised in Carson City. He was a natural born athlete. He began playing sports with AYSO soccer and played on many soccer teams simultaneously. He also started T-ball here in Carson City and worked his way up to the Carson High School and Carson City Capitals then moved on and played a couple years at Cerro Coso Community College and most recently with the Reno Astros.

He is survived by his mother Shawna Martin; father and stepmother Geraldo and Valerie Melendez; siblings Eric, Sara, Diego, Alan, Alicia and Cara; grandparents Gerardo and Nena Menendez, Carol Limasa, Cossette Melendez-Cuellar and Lyman Andrews; uncles John, Terry, Michael, Kevin, Flavio, Julio, Wilbur, Wade, Juan and Rob; aunts Sheri, Keri, Mona, Claudia, Magdalena, Adela, Heather and Melanie; nephews Alan, Ethan, Jayden and Diego; nieces Kelsey, Alexix and Jasmine; and cousins Tara, Nicole, Markoz, Nathan, Sammy, Joey, Monica, Colby, Ashton, Ryan, Richard, Andrew, Kirk, Claudia, Evan, Joanna, Jessica and Adela.
