Steven Matthew Carreno, 10, entered into rest on Tuesday morning, May 18, at home in Manteca.  

He was born on September 30, 1999 in Modesto, and had lived in Manteca for his entire life. He had beautiful blue eyes and curly brown hair and was such a blessing to those who knew him. He made a huge impact on everyone’s life in such a short time and made his family realize how very precious life is.  He was always smiling and laughing, and enjoyed music and people.  He loved being outside, especially in the mountains and enjoyed going camping with his family. He has enjoyed going to Redwood School in Stockton for the past 3 years.

“Bubba,” as he was known to his family, is deeply loved and will forever be missed by his mom Amy Waterbury & fiancé Christopher Sellnow of Manteca, and his dad Matthew Carreno of Stockton.  He adored his little sisters Katelyn Carreno and Madison Carreno, both of Manteca, and his beloved grandparents Elizabeth Waterbury & TJ Vallero of Ripon, Drew Waterbury of CA, Janet & Steven Carreno of Stockton and great grandmas Elizabeth Berrety of Folsom and Mary Jane Reynolds of Stockton.  He also leaves behind his Aunt Kimberly Waterbury of Ripon, Aunt Diane Carreno of Stockton, Uncle Mark Carreno of Stockton, and Uncle Michael Carreno of Stockton.  He was a blessing to Christopher’s family; Bruce & Nancy Sellnow of Ripon, Lisa & David Scribner of El Dorado Hills, Amber Sellnow of Paso Robles, Katie Dolen of Ripon and Tyler Scribner of El Dorado Hills.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at Calvary Reformed Church, 724 2nd Street in Ripon on Friday, May 21, 2010 at 1 p.m.  In loving memory please send donations to: SNAFU, PO Box 181, Ripon CA 95366.  Arrangements by Deegan Ripon Memorial Chapel with an online guest book available for special messages and condolences to the family at
