Alexander Trujillo

On July 18, Alexander P. Trujillo left this world and was united with his Lord and Savior Jesus, and his dear wife Jenny. Al, as people knew him, had many interests such as photography, Asian cuisine and music. Al was born in Redwood City.

He excelled at swimming in high school. He joined the Air Force at 19 and retired after 21 years. He served his country in Africa, Thailand, Japan and the States. He lived in Florida and traveled to Hawaii and Alaska. For a short time in the Air Force he was a radio DJ.

His children Tonia English, Gina Rossan and Alan Trujillo have fond memories of picnics and road trips from coast to coast. He felt very fortunate that his children married such wonderful people. They shared a mutual love, friendship and respect for each other: Ron English, Stephane Rossan and Amy (Schendel) Trujillo. He spent many hours with his grandchildren: Noelle, Amanda, Sarah, Micah, Emma, Sasha and Spencer. He was always thrilled to see his great-granddaughter, Oliviah.

He was a fierce competitor in every game he played. He loved his sports teams of the Bay Area and was a faithful fan throughout the winning and losing years. He loved talking to people and was genuinely interested in their lives.

He was a deacon at First Baptist Church for many years. He was a diligent prayer partner to many of the young men at Victory Baptist School. He also was involved in CEF school release time, the Butterfly Chapel at the Fair, ministering to the people at the Ewing Wing at John C. Fremont Hospital and just completed (at 81) a week-long Vacation Bible School ministry which he and his crew counted over $760 in pennies.

His most important legacy was that he loved his family and showed it whenever he could ... through talks, spending time together and the hugs that he gave.

Love you Dad ... See you later.

A celebration of his life will be Saturday Oct. 7, 2017, at the First Baptist Church in Mariposa at 11 a.m. All are welcome.
