August 17, 1952 - May 10, 2022


Ralph Bustamante Garcia Jr, “Pepper” 69 of Kearny, passed away Tuesday, May 10, 2022 in Mesa, Az with family by his side.

He was born August 17, 1952 in Ray/Sonora, Az to Maria Magdalena Bustamante Mendoza (Robert Mendoza) and Ralph Pimienta Garcia Jr. Pepper loved growing up in Sonora, being outdoors, working in his garden and cruising in his classic truck.

Ralph is survived by his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sisters, a brother and many nieces and nephews.

Preceded in death by his mother, father, a brother and a grandchild.

Pepper will be especially remembered for his beautiful smile, strong work ethics and how kind and humble he was to everyone he came across. He surely loved his grandchildren and had a strong relationship with God. Always willing to help the less fortunate and gave without the expectation of receiving anything in return.


Memorial service/Celebration of life will be at a later date.

    Love and miss you Dad. Rest easy

  2. He always treated me good. Fond memories of growing up in Sonora, hanging out with him in Kearney, Apache Junction and talking on the phone as older adults. Got to know him again while attending ASU and he was in Apache Junction at the time. We made a few fun trips to the border in Tijuana. The years went by and we went our separate ways. Look forward to seeing my cousin again.

  3. Rip my friend. Love you. Miss you.

  4. Growing up with my brother Ralph (Pepper) was a blessing. He was always
    full of life, laughter and goodness. He was brave and a GREAT BROTHER AND MAN. His caring and kindness shined through him. He truly was a gift from GOD for all of us. He will always be with me. He always was there for me and even now is sending a message.

    I’m writing this from heaven, Where I dwell with GOD Above. I am resting here
    with the angels who surround me now with LOVE.
    But though I may seem far away, We will never truly part, for part of me lives on with you, FOREVER in your HEART.
