January 14, 1999 ~ September 7, 2021 (age 22)


Bryan Efrain Puga, 22


Living a life full of fun, adventure, and unpredictability, Bryan Efrain Puga’s life was cut much too short for himself and everyone who loved his presence on September 07, 2021, in Riverside, CA. He made his mark on this earth when he was born on January 14, 1999, in Orange, CA to Jacqueline Bustamante and Luciano Efrain Puga. From an early age Bryan took on a passion for video games, starting with an unrivaled skill at Super Smash Bros on the N64. In fact, his string of luck didn’t just end at video games but trickled to practically every game he played. Whether it was just flicking marbles or a match of yugioh cards, he was sure to win. As he grew older, this passion developed into a love for technology and innovation. Bryan was the guy to go to if there were any questions about computers, video games, or just about any new Apple or Microsoft release. He always had an answer or opinion, and it was usually a good one. Bryan’s outgoing personality, confidence, and good sense of humor gained him many loyal friendships in high school and his football team which lasted him throughout his life. He thoroughly enjoyed the time he spent with his friends and coworkers as he was a paintball and late-night ramen enthusiast. Bryan was also adventurous, at 19 he took his first international trip to the Philippines alone with his cousins, Josue Palma and Ariadna Montes where he came back to the US with a new sense of wanderlust and a hatred for humidity. From then onwards, he continued to seek travel in his trips to Las Vegas, Lake Arrowhead, Big Bear, Florida, and an unfortunate never realized trip to New York this September.

Bryan is survived by his parents Jacqueline Bustamante Herrera and Luciano Efrain Puga and his younger sister Diana Puga as well as by his many cousins, family, friends and all the people who were impacted by him and will continue to carry his memory with them.
