Addison Zamudio, of Saint Charles, MO, passed away Friday, November 22, 2019 at the age of 16. Cherished son of Alvin Zamudio and Margaret Piper-Zamudio; dear brother of Mya and Eleanor "Ellie" Zamudio; loved grandson of Florinda Zamudio and Robert (Bob) and Elaine Piper; treasured nephew of Irma (Donald "Speedy") Vrabel, Olga (Harley "Guber" Clifton) Lightle, David (Joanne) Zamudio, Leticia (Tim) Lopez, Renee (William "Bill”) Hoff, Melissa Piper and Sarah (Jason Kossis) Giesen; loving cousin and incredible friend to everyone he met.
Addison is preceded in death by grandfather José Zamudio, uncle Joe Zamudio and aunt Norma Cordes.
Addison Zamudio was born with a wild, adventurous, inquisitive spirit that just could not be contained by rules, definitions, society’s norms, and sometimes, common sense.
Over the years, he grew into an incredible young man. Addison was creative and passionate, wickedly funny and sarcastic, a killer musician on more instruments than anyone could keep track of, a talented artist, a published illustrator, aspiring music producer...so many things! It sometimes seemed that he was more than could be contained in one person.
He was a friend to many, especially those who identified as “different.” The Creators, the Thinkers, the Goofballs, the Loners, those who struggled with their identity, those who were confident in their identity - sometimes an identity different than the one others would choose for them; these were his people. All of them.
Addison was immeasurably loved and will be profoundly missed by all who knew him.
