Louis G. Trujillo, 89, a lifelong resident of Truth or Consequences, passed away on Wednesday, March 10, 2021. Louis was born June 21, 1931 in Garfield, NM to Alvaro and Maria Lina (Gallegos) Trujillo. Louis served his country honorably in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict; and retired from the Truth or Consequences School District.
Louis is survived by his children: Tere (Blake) Theobald of T. or C., Luzia Weaver of T. or C., Alvaro (Angel) Trujillo of Goodlettesville, TN, Sylvia (Tim) Petit of Rosman, NC, and Maliza (Gerry) Palmer of Rio Rancho; brother, Gabriel Trujillo, of San Pedro, CA; sister Marcella “Chelo” Albidrez of Norwalk, CA; 12 grandchildren: Kelley and Rosa Theobald, Cliff (Tabitha) and David Weaver, Stephanie and Merced (Krystal) Baca, Kyle Trujillo, Krystal Cox, Korrie Jankowski, Tyler Petit, Marcus and Matthew Apodaca; and 12 great-grandchildren: Kayley and Carlos Salas, Amber Theobald, C. Luke, Brooklyn and Travis Baca, Mollie, Koraline, Emma and Atreyu Baca, Eva and Natalie Apodaca; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Louis is preceded in death by his wife Dora (Aguirre) Trujillo; son, Luis; daughter, Gloria (Trujillo) Baca; his parents; four sisters: Amelia Madden, Felicitas “Lichi” Ortiz, Hijinia Rodriguez and Francisca “Quica” Solis; and two brothers, Bruno and Rafael “Wero” Trujillo.
Louis was known for his strong commitment and dedication to his family for whom he made countless sacrifices and was available at a moments notice anytime they needed him. At the age of 13 his father passed way, so Louis began working full-time to provide for his siblings. He was immensely proud of the children he raised, and his legacy will live on within them, and within their children as well. Louis once said “Recuerda de dónde vienes, no sabrás hasta dónde has llegado a menos que sepas dónde empezaste”. (“Remember where you came from, you won’t know how far you’ve come unless you know where you started”).
