Jonathon Michael Favro was born on October 12, 1989, in Centralia, Washington, to Jack and Carla (Johnson) Favro. He went to guard the gates of Heaven on July 14, 2012, in Hoquiam, Washington.
Jon grew up in Aberdeen, attending AJ West, Miller Jr. High and graduating from J.M. Weatherwax High School, Class of 2008, and Grays Harbor College in 2011 with his degree in Criminal Justice, looking to follow his longtime dream of becoming a police officer.
Football and family are what Jon lived for. He played left lineman for the Aberdeen Bobcats, lettering all four years of high school and full back for the Grays Harbor Bearcats in the 2010 season. Jon and his dad had a tradition they started when he turned 5 that they would go to a Seahawks game every year on his birthday.
He loved going shooting with his friends; big bonfires; spending time with his family, especially his brothers and sister; music; writing raps; cooking and peanut butter.
Jon lived in Aberdeen from the age of 5 until his passing, except for the year following high school when he moved to Great Falls, Mont. to live with his aunt.
He worked for KFC and Walmart in Aberdeen; Casa Mia in Hoquiam; Dominoes in Great Falls, Mont.; and had been hired in March 2012 at Washington Corrections Center in Shelton where he was a Corrections Officer.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, H.B. Favro.
