It is with deep sadness and the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of Rudolph Najar on January 3, 2021 at the age of 90. He was born on August 18, 1930 to Antonio Najar and Ramona Carrillo. He was a longtime member of St. John’s Catholic Church. He was a very spiritual man and would always be praying his rosary.

Those left to mourn his passing are his beautiful, loving wife of 70 years, Lupe Najar. He was a devoted father of 5 children; Rudolph Najar, Jr., Ramona Dominguez (Robert), Linda Burrola, Tony Najar (Jill) and Lydia Lara.  Grandchildren are; Gerald Carrillo (Veronica), Rick Najar, Kristy Torres (Josh), Autumn Najar, Laurie Alvidrez (Eddie), Melissa Dominguez, Jason Dominguez (Alisha), Louie Cobos, Lenora Cobos, Ryan Najar (Jennifer), Maranda Najar, Derek Najar, Richard Lara (Tara) and Erin Lara.

Preceding him in death are his parents and his granddaughter, Desiree Najar.

His biggest treasures and gifts are his family, especially his grand & great grandchildren. He always was always ready to go see them in any activities they were involved in and was so proud of them.  He loved having them to take fishing, hunting, and road trips to the park and mountains

He enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, lotto scratchers and the casinos.  He had a wonderful beautiful fulfilled life with family and friends.

We little knew that day,

God was going to call your name.

In life, we loved you dearly,

In death, we do the same.

The family would like to give thanks to the Fire Department #3 for all their help.
