SPRING GLEN - Mateo Jack Lafoga Theorine returned home to his Heavenly Father and his papa Dec. 19, 2008 after passing away peacefully in his sleep at the young age of 22 months.

Mateo was born Feb. 1, 2007 in Price to James Victor Theorine II and Malia Mei Laulu and his big brother, James (Kimo) Victor Theorine III.

Mateo was a pillar of light to all who knew him. His beautiful smile and his golden locks of hair were just a tiny glimpse of our fun-loving little boy.

Mateo loved his family and his many friends. He loved to share kisses and hugs and the occasional love tap with all of them.

Though very young, Mateo loved sports, any kind of balls, four-wheelers, daddy's motorcycle, the trampoline, dancing and most of all, his binky.

Mateo was a very happy and energetic little boy who loved others unconditionally. He was always a comforter for those who needed comforting.

He would be the first to stand up for you in a fist fight, but would always love that person better when he was done beating them up.

Mateo loved to go bye-bye. He loved to get his coat and shoes on and be the first one ready for any adventure.

He was often found being curious and self-entertained, with the cutest mischievous smile that was contagious to everyone.

Mateo embraced and loved the music of his cultures and would express his love by dancing.

Mateo was not a little man of many words, but always knew how to express to anyone what he wanted, whether it was him pointing and grunting, or leading you right to it.

Mateo was preceded in death by his papa, Lafoga Laulu Jr., grandfather; Jack Callor, grandfather; and Anita Marie Arballo, aunt. Mateo is survived by his mom and dad, Malia Mei Laulu and James Victor Theorine II; his brother, James (Kimo) Victor Theorine III; his grandparents, Patricia Laulu, James Victor Theorine, Emma Bea Callor and Annalillia Guiterrez; his aunts and uncles, Sulika (Scott) Merrell, Juan (Ann) Theorine, Rebecca (Jason Ochoa) Laulu and Perry Laulu; his cousins, Kalani Vai Laulu, Sai'peti Epomaikaimaikeakuaokalaniikeiaohanaalii Merrell and Graciann Marie Theorine; and many of his extended family and friends who love him very dearly. Funeral services will be Tuesday, Dec. 23, at 11 a.m. at the Price 4th/5th LDS Ward building, 380 East 400 North. A viewing will Tuesday from 10 to 10:45 a.m. at the church prior to the services. Interment will be in the Cliffview Cemetery. Services are in the care of Fausett Mortuary.
