Just one day before Father’s Day, June 19, 2010, Alex Trujillo’s life was cut short at 33-years old when an armed gunman entered a restaurant where he was dining with his wife and their two sons. The gunman fired several rounds killing Alex and his eldest son, 6-year old Adrian Trujillo. His wife Roxanne, 29, and their youngest child, 5-year old Ethan, also sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Alex Trujillo was a son, a brother, a husband and a father. Six-year old Adrian was taken from us all too soon, perhaps Heaven needed another angel. Roxanne is currently hospitalized and listed in good condition and five-year old Ethan Trujillo is in fair condition. We ask that you keep Roxanne and Ethan in your thoughts and prayers as they will have a difficult road to recovery.
Alex was such an amazing human being, but amongst all the wonderful things he was, he was mostly known for being a dedicated father. Alex played a very active role in his boys’ daily lives including their education, providing guidance for them, and acted as a volunteer parent at their school. He made sure the boys’ needs were placed before his, making self-sacrifices so that he was able to offer them the opportunity of a better life. Adrian was a vibrant and active little boy. Swimming and racing R/C cars were his favorite past times. Alex was always constructing ramps and various tracks for the boys’ to use with their R/C cars. Alex and the boys’ were a fixture at family events. We count our blessings that we are able to have such wonderful memories of Alex and Adrian. Alex’s number one priority was protecting his babies. Although no one in the world will ever be able to replace such an amazing father, as his surviving family, we plan to continue that legacy through Ethan.
The outpour of support and condolences from the community has been overwhelming. We are deeply humbled and words cannot express our gratitude. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to assist with funeral and medical costs. We sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts for any amount you are able to contribute.
