80, passed away peacefully May 17, after a 4 year struggle with Alzheimer's. Born in New Braunfels, Texas he married his wife Sarah and moved to, and started a new life, in Santa Barbara in 1957. A simple and hard working man, he worked two jobs almost all his life to provide for the thing he cherished most; his family.

He is survived by the love of his life, his wife Sarah; sons Julian Jr. (Jill), Roy (Georgia), Chuck (Anna), Bob (Bertha), daughters Evangeline Andersson (Bruce), Virginia, Step-sons Rudy (Julie) Medina, and Ruben (Sandra) Medina, his two sisters, Mary Villarreal, and Celestina Zamora. He was blessed with, and is survived by, 19 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents Martin and Trinidad Villarreal, his brothers Frank and Reyes, and sisters Dora Ybarra and Eloisa Zamora .

A Rosary is scheduled for Wednesday 5/22, 7pm at Welch Ryce on Ward Drive. Mass will be at St. Raphael's Church, Thursday at 10am, with interment immediately after Mass at Calvary Cemetery. Our family would like to thank the staff at Ventura's Community Memorial Hospital for the care and kindness they provided for Julian during his final days and express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the manner in which Mr. Rick Pittman and his staff at The Mound Guest Home in Ventura cared for and treated Julian over the past two years.

Arrangments entrusted to Welch-Ryce-Haider Funeral Chapels.
