Julian was raised a devout Catholic and attended Mass at least twice a week with his family. He loved his brothers and sisters and spoke of them often. Through out the years they traveled to many states, lived in many places and settled in Othello in 1960.
Julian worked hard to provide for the family working in the fields and eventually starting Villarreal Trucking. Julian was a dreamer he always shared his ideas of how to start a new business. He loved to sing, one of his favorite songs was, De Colores. He sang that song very well and very load, especially real early in the morning while we where still sleeping. It was his way of saying it's time to get up! Julian loved to travel, we visited family near and far and upon arrival he always made sure he had some pan dulce to share.
He will be greatly missed by many.
