1956 - 2021
Rudy Gutierrez passed away during the afternoon of June 15, at his home surrounded by his wife, Lori, son Gabriel, and his hospice nurse Jessica Fernandez after a heroic 20 month battle with pancreatic cancer.
He was preceded in death by his father Almador Gutierrez. He is survived by his mother Guadalupe and his 10 brothers and sisters.
Rudy loved to play golf, fish, hike, ride his bike, cook, and tend to his garden. Being a chef for many years in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, Rudy's cooking, originally in Napa, and finally at his own restaurant, Amigos Grill and Cantina, is fondly remembered by many in the community today.
The family will be having a memorial service at St. John's Lutheran Church in Napa on July 24 at 11am. A reception with food will follow after.
The family sincerely wants to thank all of those from their church community, as well as work and other friends who have supported them through this difficult time. The family also wants to specifically thank Collabria Care and the office of Dr. Mirda at Queen of the Valley, for the amazing staff and their dedication in being there for Rudy during this difficult time.
