In Loving Memory of Elisio "Dusty Rooster" Lozano


Elisio Lozano, affectionately known as the Dusty Rooster, passed away on November 9, 2023, in Bloomington, CA, peacefully in his sleep. He was born on March 3, 1945, in Los Angeles, California, to Emilio and Estella Lozano. He joins his beloved parents, siblings Martha, Beatrice, and Steven, in eternal peace.


Elisio is survived by his sister Virginia, brothers Raymond, Frankie, Gerald (Chino), and Arthur. He is remembered as a devoted father to Leo, Emell, and Diana Lozano.
