 Richardo S. Trujillo was born to Steve and Esther Trujillo, July 6, 1951 and died August 14, 2010.  He had three sisters and one brother, Wilma Maria Holland, Christine McKeon and Ruth Francoeur Martinez and Eugene Trujillo.  He had 3 nieces and nephews, Jennifer Francoeur Anderson, Rick Francoeur and Steven Holland.


His sister, Christine McKeon and his father Steve proceeded him in death.


He married Janice Cummings in 1978 and they were blessed with two daughters, Tara Nicole Medina and Tamira Natise Trujillo.  Tara has two daughters, Sienna Rose Medina and Ashlyn Victoria Medina.  Tara and her husband live in Okinawa, Japan where her husband, Marcos is serving in the military.  Tamira lives and works in Denver.


Richardo attended Colorado College in Colorado Springs and went on to get a double master’s degree from the University of Colorado Medical School in Hospital Administration and International Finance.    


While attending Colorado College, Richardo had the opportunity to study in Spain and in Africa.  While in Africa, his spirit of adventure led him up ¾ of the way to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, but altitude sickness kept him from the scaling the mountain. 


Richardo always was willing to lend a hand and helped every member of the family move more than once.  He was quick witted, had a great laugh and loved his family. 


Janice and Richardo divorced in 1990 and Richardo later married Carmen Saa from Ecuador. Before Richardo’s death, he and Janice rekindled their friendship and he recommitted his life to Christ.


We know we will see Richardo again when we all get to heaven.  What a joyous place that will be; seeing our loved ones and walking on those streets of gold.


We miss you, Richardo, but know you are free from any pain, any misery and know now you are receiving the love and appreciation you so richly deserved.


Lovingly, Jan, Tara and Tamira


   A homily to my husband Richardo Trujillo by Carmen Saa Trujillo


There are so many things that come to my mind since the day we met until now. We had so many wonderful times. When he came to spend eight weeks here in my country before I went to live in the States we lived an amazing love story. At the beginning I fell in love with  him due to his tenderness, the easiness with which he make up stories and how much we laughed together, afterwards I found much more reasons to love him. Not everything was perfect in our lives; there were lots of obstacles in our journey.


One of the things I love a lot about Oso (Richardo) was the way he loved his two girls, they were absolutely important for him. He was not able to show his love, even though he was a very sensitive person. The first years of our marriage I admired so much his responsibility in his job and the amazing professor he was.


I never stopped loving him and now I choose to remember the good moments that we spent together, when he comes to my mind is always in a positive way, which is the way I choose to remember him. I miss him very much and he will always be the man I want to spend my live with, regardless of any bad moments we lived together.


I love you Oso and will miss you always, rejoice with our God in heaven.


Carmen (Tu Osa)
