Rudolpho C. Lozano

July 24, 1939March 15, 2021

Rudolpho Calixto Lozano Rudy was born July 24, 1939 in Harlingen, Texas where he also attended and graduated from Harlingen High School in 1957. He was preceded in death by his father Rodolfo Lozano, his mother Consuelo and his sisters Celina and Sally. He is survived by his wife Emily, Sisters Nelda and Mary, his sons Rudy Jr and Mark, daughter Christina, stepsons Peter, Alex and Francisco as well as his grandchildren Taylor, Presley, Paulo, Emilio and his great grandson Rowen. He served his country and became a decorated Marksman Rifle Sharpshooter for the US Army National Guard from March 2,1962 and was honorably discharged on January 28,1967. After his career in the armed forces, he’s continued to give back to the community and taught mathematics at Lathrop Intermediate School in Santa Ana, California for 35 years. He loved taking his son Mark on joy rides in his Black Limited Edition Grand National and eventually bought the car of his dreams, a band new, shiny blue Chevy Corvette. Which he regularly joked and referred to as his second wife. After Rudy retired from teaching, he continued to break all barriers known the world over as a senior World Championship Powerlifter. It seems it were just yesterday, eleven years ago when he broke the Guinness Book of World Records in his age group for benching 402 lbs, weighing only 180 lbs at seventy years old! He was the stuff of legends making it into Halls of Fame and history books. The oldest guy you might have seen at Venice, California’s Famed Muscle Beach had a heart of gold! Always greeting a stranger with a firm handshake, a wide smile and never without a charming compliment to add. With sugar on top! After suffering a stoke, he maintained a humble and positive attitude toward his health. He looked forward to his physical therapy hoping to work out again five days a week and kept smiling and joking through his last days. He will be greatly missed, always in our hearts and never forgotten.
