Armand Ray Bonilla-Giuriato passed away on Sunday March 3, 2019. Armand was born on April 22, 1992 in San Francisco, Ca. to Ron and Maria Bonilla-Giuriato. Armand was born at 23 weeks and was a one pound preemie who proved to be a fighter from the moment he entered the world. As soon as he could walk, his love for sports began. Armand played baseball, soccer, basketball, and roller hockey. His father coached many of the sports teams he played on and he loved sharing these memories with his father. Armand created lasting memories and lifelong friendships through playing sports.

Armand attended Laurel Wood Elementary school, Washington Middle School, Salinas High School and Monterey Peninsula College. He was just units away from his degree.

Armand had the best smile and made everyone feel like his best friend. He worked at various restaurants and grocery stores in the area, spreading his joy and warmth to everyone he met. He loved his interactions with his customers and they all loved him as well.

In his free time, he enjoyed playing billiards with his dad, watching lifetime movies with his mom, and discovering new indie and international films. He spent several years as a science camp counselor at Mount Herman science camp and loved being a positive role model for the younger kids. He always wanted to work with children in the development needs field.

Armand is survived by his parents, Ron and Maria; sister, Bianca Giuriato-Smith; brother in law, Daniel Smith; nieces Zara and Bryanna Smith; nephews J.J. & E.Z. Smith; uncle and aunt Efren and Kirsten Bonilla; cousins Marcus, Kori, Mariah and Evan Bonilla.
