La Familia Oseguera de La Canada regrets to announce the passing of Jesus Ricardo Oseguera. Richard was born in La Canada May 14, 1953 and passed away at Good Samaritan Hospital October 9, 2012. He attended Paradise Canyon Elementary School and graduated from Glendale High School. Richard was the youngest of ten children born to Jesus and Braulia Oseguera. Three sisters preceded him in death (Maria, Teresa, and Natalia). Richard loved sports, fixing cars, and most of all, playing the guitar. Richard was an exceptionally talented individual when it came to the guitar, he could listen to anything and play it exactly as heard, quite a talent. He was a gifted guitar teacher too. For many years in the 70’s & 80’s, he could be seen walking up and down Foothill Boulevard in La Canada as well as in Montrose and La Crescenta with his guitar, playing for anybody who would like to hear a song or just talk guitar. Richard was an extraordinary person who tackled adversity and life’s challenges courageously without giving up. Richard was one of a kind who would unselfishly help you and even give you his shirt if you needed it. He was well known and loved by all who knew him. He will be greatly missed.
Richard is survived by his brothers: Alfonso of Arroyo Grande, Benjamin of La Canada, David of San Diego, and Salvador of Calexico. Sisters: Amparo Balbuena of La Canada, Maria E. Frias of El Sereno, and Rosa Lopez of Montebello. He is survived locally by nieces and nephews: William L. McNeely III, and Gloria M. Frias of La Canada and Mariano C. Balbuena of Temple City.
