Rudy Gutierrez

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.

Hi Lori~ I was so saddened to hear of Rudy´s passing. I have known him for about 30 years, first met when I drove for a produce company. I knew him at the Red Hen and later at Your Amigo´s restaurant in Sonoma. Every so often I would run into him and he was always so friendly as we reminisced about the old days of the restaurant business. I will miss the days of seeing him and I hope he is in a better place now. My thoughts and prayers are with you as I write this heart felt message. Peace, George Stone (I now have been in the wine tour business for over 23 years). Not sure if you remember me.
