Pedro Carrillo Munoz (1926-2021)

On Tuesday, July 27, 2021, Pedro Carrillo Munoz, loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away at age 94 in Fillmore, California.
Pedro was born on November 13, 1926, in Chalchisco de Arriba, Zacatecas to Jose and Ma. EncarnaciĂłn Carrillo Munoz. On December 1, 1965, he married the love of his life, Petra Munoz in Jalpa, Zacatecas, and celebrated 55 years of marriage.
They were blessed with three children, Jose Pedro Munoz, Olga Herrera Munoz, and Alma Angelica Rodriguez.
Pedro first came to the United States in 1947, where he worked in Texas, where he worked in agriculture. He lived and worked in Texas, Illinois, and throughout California, before settling in Fillmore in 1963. He and his family lived in Rancho La Campana until 1990. Pedro was also involved in the Migrant Education Program; his involvement led him to advocate at the county, state, and federal level, where he represented the migrant parents and children of California. He attended morning mass six days a week, followed by a coffee club at McDonald’s with his friends for numerous years, where they talked about every subject under the sun and received table service from the employees who knew and loved them.
Pedro’s greatest passion was his family. He loved unconditionally and was always there to help his children and grandchildren in any way he could. He helped with countless drop-offs and pick-ups, would go to the grocery store multiple times a day to buy any and everything his wife needed, and attended every sporting and school event he could.
He will be remembered by his detailed stories, driving around town on his red scooter, and his love for coffee and sweets. He was blessed to pass surrounded by his family in his favorite place in the world, his home.
He is survived by his wife, Petra Munoz, his children- Jose Pedro Munoz (m. Diane Munoz), Olga Herrera Munoz, and Alma Rodriguez (m. Tomas Rodriguez), grandchildren- Martin Herrera, Marco Herrera, Brianna Rodriguez, Valery Rodriguez, Venisa Rodriguez, Isaac Rodriguez, and Roman Munoz, and great-grandchildren- Rayleen Herrera, Aubrey Herrera, Nevaeh Herrera, Roman Herrera, Gianna Herrera, Cartel Herrera, and Gemma Herrera.
