Tony Santana Ortiz (1920-2019)

Tony Santana Ortiz, 98 years of age, passed away peacefully on April 30, 2019.

Tony and his twin sister Dolores were born in Tonaya, Jalisco, Mexico on November 11, 1920 to Onesimo Ortiz and Maria Santana. He was the youngest of twelve siblings whom all preceded his death.

In 1945, Tony traveled to Colusa County and shortly after met and married Nadine Sotello and settled in Williams, California. Together they had five children: Richard, Marty, Carl, Robert, and Dolores. Tony was a hardworking and dedicated employee of Depue Warehouse for 39 years. He was an avid horseman, had a love and passion for all animals and was a true outdoorsman. He was known for his great sense of humor and never passed up the chance for a practical joke. Tony loved his family, his community, and was a mentor to many.

Continuing his journey through life, in 1986, Tony met and married Francis Espana and joined her large and loving family in Maxwell, California. For thirty-three years Tony and Francis enjoyed each other, their family, and their community.

Tony is survived by his wife Francis, his five children, five grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.

The Rosary and mass were held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Maxwell CA on Monday May 6, 2019. Services were officiated by Father Francisco Hernandez.

In lieu of flowers the family requested donations to be made to Maxwell Cemetery or Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
