Born in Coyote, NM to Gertrude and Pablo Trujillo
Survived by his loving wife Loya of 53 years. Children Inez Harlan, Liz (Don) Garlock, Judy (John) Ksiazkiewicz, Ross (Michelle) Trujillo, and Richard (Laura) Trujillo; grandchildren Jesse (Cassidy) Proctor, Richard Eubanks, Kristina Stimpson, Jeremy Garlock, Joshua (Kristina) Ksiazkiewicz, Daniel Ksiazkiewicz, Jonell Ksiazkiewicz, Ross T. (Sarah) Trujillo, Haley (Tim) Stroshine, Shawn Trujillo, and Jared Trujillo; eight great-grandchildren and his favorite dog Chico (Baby Boy) and Bubba.
Ross worked for the City of Monticello for 36 years, which made him a great source for advice for the new crew. He was well known for his wood working, hunting, camping, yard work, loved to go watch Rick race, and fixing up stuff he hauled in from the darn dump!
We all know that he was “tough as nails” and had a great sense of humor.
Thanks to all of his morning coffee buddies! (The stories you told in confidence are out.)
We witnessed his love for Christ and look forward to seeing the field of flowers he said that was too beautiful to describe.
We will all miss him and will never forget what a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend he has been to all of us. We appreciate all who helped care for him during his last days.
A Rosary was held December 16 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Monticello. A Mass is scheduled for Saturday December 17 at 11 a.m. also at St Joseph’s Catholic Church.
Going to miss you more than words can express!!!
