Aiden Matthew Hernandez-Diaz

Aiden Matthew Hernandez-Diaz, 7, died May 10, 2020 in Lakin, KS. He was born August 28, 2012 to Yesenia Diaz and Gilberto Hernandez in Garden City.


Aiden was a 2nd grader at Buffalo Jones Elementary School. His favorite subjects in school were Reading, Science and Recess. He loved to play soccer and was a strategic Loteria opponent. Always ambitious, he aspired to become a YouTuber now and a Cowboy later. He enjoyed playing with his teddy bear, Woody doll and dinosaurs. He was a sweet boy, ready with hugs and kisses, good morning greeting and good night farewell, sweet grin, ornery sense of humor (every day was April Fools Day) and a bright soul that shines on in the memories he leaves behind.


He was preceded in death by his grandfather-Salvador Diaz and Cousin-Yvon Ibett Ibon.
