Deven Everett (Arias) Villia
With deepest sorrow we announce Deven Everett (Arias) Villia from Colorado, died in his Pueblo home March 5th 2021. Deven's dream of a career in the armed services, were broken when the US army discharged him due to a childhood illness. Deciding to further his education, Deven attended Pueblo Community College. At age 30, Deven was an up and coming artist, who enjoyed weight training, and exercising and was composing a cookbook of simple healthy recipes, to feed your workouts! Deven was an accomplished, amateur survivalist, having several years training, and 3 successful completed challenges. Deven's genuine and positive approach to people and life, made him exceptional and touch the lives of everyone he met. With unconditional kindness and compassion, Deven helped anyone in need without a thought to his own. His desire to make a difference, to matter to others will never be forgotten. Deven's spirit and love will be missed everyday. His life counted and will be celebrated by many who loved him dearly. Deven was active in his church, regularly, and gladly volunteered along side other members, in helping those who were experiencing hardships.
