Charles (Charlie) Naranjo, of Ione CA, passed away March 2, 2023, as a result of a tragic motor vehicle accident. Charlie was born on September 4, 2015, in Roseville CA to his parents Alfonso Naranjo and Amanda Fisher-Naranjo. Charlie was in first grade at Ione Elementary School. Charlie is survived by his mother Amanda Fisher-Naranjo and his oldest brother Michael Amado.
Charlie loved his family and his friends. He was the middle boy in a family of three boys. He played basketball for Amador Youth Basketball; baseball for Amador County Little League West; and football for Argonaut Junior Mustangs. He loved to play sports, ride his skateboard, go camping, and play at the park with his brothers and friends. Even at a young age Charlie was recognized for his athletic ability in the community. He was a gifted and natural young athlete. He spent many hours skateboarding or riding his BMX bike, learning the intricate details of the skate park; he tried to perfect his style at the park or at home daily. He also applied this same strategy to almost everything he did. When he played basketball, he practiced. When he played football, he practiced. This was his natural way of approaching things, and he had natural aptitude. Charlie also applied this to his school studies. Although Charlie was gifted athletically, and very competitive, he was kind, sweet, a good friend, and full of compassion and love towards others. Charlie was fortunate to have such a loving mother, older brother, and father to encourage him, to assist him, and to celebrate with him. He and his younger brother, Joel, were very close and fortunate to have each other and have such an incredibly bond together.
Charlie was surrounded by family, friends, and a community who loved him. He is also survived by his grandparents, Charles, and Karen Heintschel; Uncle, Jaden Heintschel, his aunt, Krista, Uncle Justin, and Cousin Chloe Zoller. He is also survived by a large family that loved him, including his great grandparents, great aunt and uncles, cousins, and friends.
