A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at Immaculate Conception Parish, 505 S. Avenue B. Father Muñoz's funeral mass and burial will take place in Mexicali.

Father Muñoz was born on September 6, 1958 in San Nicolás de los Agustino, Gto, México to Miguel Muñoz and Manuela Gallardo. He attended school in San Nicolás and Morelia, Michoacán, México.

He began his path to priesthood by attending the Seminario Tridentino de Morelia in Michoacán, México from 1976 to 1981 and was ordained into Holy Orders as a priest on October 17, 1985. In 1995, with the permission of the Bishop of Mexicali, he began ministering in the Diocese of Tucson as a parish priest at St. Joseph's in Wellton, Arizona and became a priest of the Diocese of Tucson on January 1, 2001. He became a U.S. citizen in 2008.

During his ministry with the Diocese of Tucson Father Muñoz served at St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Wellton from 1995 to 2010; and at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Somerton from 2010 to 2014. He had just begun serving at Immaculate Conception Parish in Yuma in January.
