It is with great sorrow that the family of Haley Ray (Park) Magee announces her unexpected passing from this life, on November 6, 2023.
Haley was born March 14, 1999 to Salina Cinabro and came home to Golden, Colorado where she spent her childhood years becoming a sweet, beautiful, caring young lady and developing her lifelong talents as an artist. After moving to Ft. Collins when she was 13, she developed compassionate friendships and a zeal for skateboarding. But her true passion was always art. She explored and excelled in many mediums including drawing, sculpting, water color, jewelry, portraits, beaded masks, and costume design. She fell in love with anime art and that became a major influence in her work. After graduating high school and living in her beloved mountains for a year, she came home to pursue a career as a tattoo artist. She was amazingly and prolifically talented, and we are so sad that we will never again see a new creation from her.
Haley was so intelligent with a quick wit and a tenacious spirit. She explored many and varied topics, researching online and testing her opinions with family and friends. We’ve had many conversations with her about ocean life (at the age of 4), ecosystems, environmental concerns, space, politics, different religions, healthy eating, historical influences in cultures, and so much more. She was so proud of her Korean heritage and it was her dream to be able to visit Korea one day. She was also such a fun loving girl. She enjoyed cos-play and made some of her own costumes for conventions. She also loved going to concerts near and far to see her favorite artists, collecting concert memorabilia along the way.
Haley is survived by her mother, Salina Cinabro; step-father, Roger Soderberg; brothers, Chais and Russell; step-sister, Sammi Rossin; grandparents, Cathy and Rich Ratschkowsky, and Bill and Teri Cinabro. Also Godfather Uncle Corey, Auntie Ann, cousins Brody, Joe, Tom, Catie, Uncle Daniel, Aunt Meredith, Godmother ‘Aunt’ Colleen, ‘Uncle’ Steve, and her nephews, Kaiden and Ollie. Her family is mourning an enormous loss.
Haley was a giving and selfless soul. This first thing remembered about her by close friends and passing acquaintances alike is kindness. We didn’t have as long with her as we wanted, but her short time here touched all of our lives with love. Our hearts are broken, Haley, and you are deperately missed. We are hugging you in our souls. We know that you told ‘Uncle Steve’ you made it. Thank you for letting us know. It helps.
A Celebration of Life will takes place at a later date.
