Frank Rodney Murillo Outzen

February 3, 1985 - July 4, 2013

Frank Rodney Murillo Outzen succumbed to a congenital heart condition on July 4, 2013. It was the only time the condition kept him from living a life full of friends, family, and being a big kid at heart. He grew up in Redondo Beach, Torrance and Carson CA. Frank attended Alta Vista Elementary School, and Calle Mayor Middle School. He graduated from Torrance South High School in 2003. He received an Associate degree in Business from Harbor College. Frank had been employed by Albertson's as a meat cutter for over 10 years. He started working in the retail field in high school, and loved meeting people and making friends with his customers. Frank was a soul loaned to us to be a light in our lives. He lived life with enthusiasm for his passions, which were many. As a South Bay kid he wanted to master the local activities, skate boarding, remote control planes and cars, outrigger canoe paddling in the youth program of the Redondo Beach Lanakila Outrigger Canoe Club, camping in Baja, going to the local beaches. To Frank, ambition meant becoming great in the things that interested him. He was an avid collector; his latest collection was Dodger bobble head figures. He viewed competition as part of having fun with his friends. Frank loved to travel, and started as a child with his grandparents, June and Pete Murillo. He frequently attended concerts of his favorite local bands. He was always open to going to a new place, trying a new food, discovering a new hobby, or having a new adventure. In the last few years, Frank had developed a popular YouTube channel, called reggaefrank09. He loved food, so his videos focused on reviewing hot sauces, very hot peppers, and other spicy foods. His tag line was "keep it spicy". Frank had adopted a philosophy based on a Reggae outlook of life - "Don't worry, be happy", "live the life you love and love the life you live" His favorite tattoo depicted the symbols for stop, pause and play. Frank was the best son, brother, uncle and friend that most of us will ever know. He had the kind heart of a child, and the happiness of a man who had continuously lived an adventurous, fun life. His easy going personality and great sense of humor will be missed, and remembered by all who knew him. Since his death, everyone who knew him has thought of his life and his effect on peopleand have vowed to be more like him. Frank is predeceased by his grandfather, Pete Murillo and his uncle, Jimmy Murillo, of Carson Ca.His grandfather came from a large family, and his father had four brothers, so Frank was always surrounded by aunts, uncles and cousins, at frequent gatherings at his grandparents' house in Carson, CA.. Frank is survived by his beautiful girlfriend, Lizeth Garcia, his father, Frank Murillo, his grandmother, June Murillo, his uncles, Pete Murillo, Lee Murillo, and Manuel Murillo all from Carson, Ca. He leaves behind his closest friends, his sisters and brother, Amanda Olea, and her daughters and son, Carson, CA, Summer Murillo, San Antonio, TX, Lauren Culver, Houston TX, and Daniel Culver, Houston TX, His father and his former stepmother, Rhonda Murillo Sims, San Antonio TX raised him to be active and outgoing, and to never consider his heart condition as a limitation. He is also survived by his mother, Melanie Outzen and her family, Carson, CA. He had built a full life of numerous friends, both locally and from across the country. All of his friends and family know that our life was much fuller with Frank as a part it. The family appreciates all of the kind words and prayers during this time.
