Frank Zuniga Chavez III, age 59, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 18th, 2016 at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego, CA surrounded by his family.
Frank was born on December 4, 1956 in El Centro, CA to Frank Gallardo Chavez II and Ramona Zuniga Chavez. He married Yolanda Caudillo in April of 1986 and they had two children, Eileen and Frank IV.
Frank worked as an account executive with Rocky’s Food Distribution for 17 years. His unique talent for problem solving and servicing his accounts led to his customers becoming his friends. He truly lived life to the fullest with his three grandchildren through simple pleasures, trips to the store, taking walks, fishing, motorcycle rides, watching his favorite TV shows, playing catch, and watching his grandsons exceed in all their sport and school activities.
Frank had a special ability of reaching people through his loud voice, caring heart, contagious laugh and love and faith in God.
Frank is survived by his wife, Yolanda, his daughter, Eileen (Chavez) Gutierrez (33y), his son Frank Chavez IV (31y), and daughter-in-law Jamie Garcia. Three grandchildren, Jose Jacob (JJ) Gutierrez (13y), Matthew Gutierrez (9y), and Jezerai Chavez (1y), two sisters, Letty (Chavez) and Raymond Gonzalez, Serena (Rivera) and Steve Carrasco. And of course, many nieces, nephews, cousins, sister & brother in-laws, and friends survive him.
