It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, El Senor Taurino Izaguirre Almazan Sr. at the age of 89 years. El Senor Almazan entered the kingdom of god in peace on December 29, 2017 at home surrounded by his entire family.
El Senor Almazan was born to humble parents in the town of Villa Juarez, San Luis Potosi, Mexico. He was one of seven siblings. As a young boy, he began to seek a better life for himself and his family. At the age of 15 years, he migrated to the United States in search of his American dream. He immediately found work and that was the beginning of his new life in the United States. In 1950, he married his late wife Josefina. He lived in Texas, Illinois and in 1962 settled in Saticoy, California with his family. After the loss of his wife Josefina, El Senor Almazan married his surviving wife Francisca in 1970. They moved to Ventura, California in 1977 and lived happily in the same home until his passing.
El Senor Almazan worked for Stimming Flowers out of Camarillo for many years before transferring to what would be his new and last job with Brokaw Nursery in Saticoy. He retired in 1987 to enjoy life with his family and friends. There was always a shortage of time for him doing the things he loved best. He visited his native town of Villa Juarez, celebrated every type of occasion with family and friends, and spent a lot of time with his family. He also spent time with his passion and love of tending his garden and personally maintaining his house.
Every member of El Senor Almazan’s family stands proud to be his wife, son, daughter, grandchild and great grandchild. He is the one that laid the strong family foundation and shaped who we are today by instilling strong family values. He leaves a legacy of a strong, supportive family; a family that lives with a purpose of making a positive contribution to humanity. El Senor Almazan is survived by his wife Francisca, daughter Leticia Heiter (Camarillo) Venancio (Santa Paula), Taurino Jr., Jorge, Edgar and Kyle of Ventura, seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Forever he will be engraved in our memory. We love him and will miss him.
