The Impact of One Passionate Life

The Gift that Keeps on Giving has An Impact


The Passion of Life Foundation
Created in Memory of My Dear Brother Victor Lizarraga

I want to share Victor’s story with you to give you a sense of how devoted he was to making lives better, and to demonstrate how much his character inspires me. One evening while driving home from work, Victor called me. He was overwhelmed with emotion and expressed the desire to do something meaningful for people in need. I suggested he go to a grocery store and purchase some food for a hungry family.

Victor being Victor, he drove straight to a supermarket. He and his two young sons, Jacob & Joshua, found a father and son wandering the parking lot, where they were asking shoppers for food. Victor invited them to go into the store with him to pick out what groceries they wanted. In the cereal aisle, the man’s son picked up a box of Frosted Flakes, clearly a rare luxury for him, and locked eyes with his dad to ask permission to put it in the cart. Victor, noticing this, grabbed two boxes and threw them in alongside the other groceries.

I still have not forgotten the power of that story. It illustrates so many of the values that we strive to make central, not just in The Passionate Life Foundation, but to every aspect of our lives.

Victor observed a personal touch that would make his act of service especially memorable, and he acted on it. We pray that one day you too will be able to bless someone with an act of kindness.

My brother strove to have a positive impact on every life he encountered. As a father, business owner, and community member, it’s a mission we try to carry on every day.

God Bless You.

Every good & perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows
