Victor Hernandez Zavala (August 1945 – October 2023) Because of his smile, he made life more beautiful!

It is with great sadness that the Zavala family announces the passing of our beloved brother Victor Hernandez Zavala 78 of Piru California on Friday, October 27, 2023.

Victor was born August 13, 1945, in Tijuana Baja California Mexico. Our brother had a kind heart, great smile, and will be greatly missed by all his loved ones and all those who knew him.

Victor attended the ARC Program in Santa Paula for many years. He enjoyed being around horses, farm animals, being outside, sitting and talking with his brother Gabriel, walking to his brother Hess’ house, visiting with his neighbor friend, and getting a nice BIG burrito from La Terraza Restaurant. He loved watching Bonanza, drinking a nice cold Coke, but most of all he loved attending the ARC program.

Victor is survived by his siblings Hess (Joy) Zavala, Gloria Davalos, Gilbert (Irene) Zavala, Gabriel Zavala, Tommy (Martha) Zavala, Rosie (Chava) Hurtado, and Martha (Steve) Hope. Also survived by 16 nieces, nephews, many great nieces and nephews and their children. He was preceded in death by his parents Luisa “Licha” Zavala, Jesus “Chuy” Zavala, and nephew Ralph Davalos.
