Rudy Olivas Carabajal

May 5, 1977 — January 7, 2024

Tucson, Arizona

Rudy Olivas Carabajal, born on May 5, 1977, in Bakersfield, California, has left this world and entered into eternity on January 7, 2024, in Phoenix, Arizona. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother and friend. Rudy was a remarkable individual who touched the lives of many through his hard work, sense of humor, and unwavering love for his family.

Rudy took great pride his career as the proud owner of his own landscaping company named Certified Landscape and Maintenance. With dedication and passion, he cultivated beautiful outdoor spaces that brought joy and tranquility to others. His commitment to excellence and his expertise in this field were widely recognized and admired.

Beyond his professional achievements, Rudy's true happiness resided in the cherished moments he spent with his loved ones. He adored dancing with his grandchildren; every morning was transformed into an exuberant dance party that filled their hearts with laughter and delight. Rudy's infectious energy would light up the room as he twirled them around to joyful rhythms.

His loving personality had a mischievous streak; Rudy was known for being a jokester who never missed an opportunity to bring smiles to people's faces. Despite his playful nature, he possessed an unparalleled work ethic that kept him constantly on the go. A fighter until the very end, Rudy approached life with determination and resilience.

Rudy was tough and stubborn—a true force of nature. Although at times he may have been a pain in the butt, there was no doubt that he was a pain we all loved dearly. Above all else, Rudy was a devoted husband to his beloved wife Kathlina for 25 years. Their bond endured through thick and thin and stood as a testament to their unwavering commitment.

As a father and grandfather, Rudy took immense pride in watching his children grow and flourish. Destiny, Rudy Jr., Damion, Desire, and Sammy filled his heart with immeasurable joy. He was their rock, their guiding light, and their biggest supporter in every endeavor. His proudest accomplishments were his children and grandchildren, who carry on his legacy.

Rudy's passion for the outdoors extended beyond his profession. He found solace in fishing and camping, relishing the beauty of nature that surrounded him. His curious nature led him to tinker with various objects, though it often resulted in things being taken apart but never quite put back together again. Nevertheless, Rudy's ceaseless curiosity was an endearing quality that added to his magnetic personality.

In this time of grieving, we bid farewell to Rudy Olivas Carabajal. He leaves behind a community of mourners who will forever cherish the memories they shared with him. Preceded in death by his brothers Armando and Tony, as well as his beloved grandparents, George and Rosa Randle, Rudy now rests peacefully alongside them.

Rudy's memory will forever be cherished by those he held dear. His beloved wife Kathlina, whom he adored above all else; his children—Destiny, Rudy Jr., Damion, Desire, and Sammy—who carry his strength within them; and his grandchildren—Mateo, Aiden, Mariel, and Eziekiel—who brought boundless joy to his life.

He also leaves behind his siblings Abel (Bertha), Ruben, Moises (Priscilla), Sandra, and Rosalinda Carabajal; his mother Rose Carabajal; nephew Ruben Carabajal Jr.; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and friends whose lives were immeasurably enriched by Rudy's presence.
