7/6/1934 – 10/9/2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Raul Varela Gonzalez announce his passing in Carpinteria on Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021.
Raul was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and moved to Carpinteria in 1969, where he settled with his loving wife of 65 years.
He was a loving husband, wonderful father, devoted grandfather and proud great-grandfather.
Raul’s work ethic was unmatched, providing valuable lessons for his family. He was a life long Dodgers fan – 1981 was his favorite season. Raul was a God-fearing man and read his Bible daily.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Marina; his children Martha, Jesus, Raul Jr. Jaime, Maria and Lorena; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Rosary will take place on Monday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. at St. Joseph Church. Mass will take place at Tuesday, Oct. 19, at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph Church, and burial will follow at Carpinteria Cemetery.
The family would like to thank the first responders and medical staff for their effort and compassionate care.
