Rosendo C. Mayoral, 87 of Dixon, CA, passed away November 6in Dixon of natural causes. Rosendo was born February 24, 1931 to Cleofas and Estela Mayoral in Cananea, Sonora Mexico. He was the first of 7 siblings; Mike, Jimmy, Ruben, Ricardo, Hector, and Lupita. The family immigrated to the United States when Rosendo was 14, and resided in Bisbee, AZ. Later the family moved to Tagus Ranch near Tulare. There, Rosendo attended High School and on weekends and summer vacation helped the family working hard in the orchards and berry crops. This served him well later in his life. The family then moved to Liberty Island where, through his father, he was introduced to Farm Labor Contracting.

They supplied farm workers to the tenant farmers for Liberty Farms Company. They followed the farmers into Dixon, where they then built their reputation by helping thousands of workers and their families while providing quality workers for farmers and businesses. Mike passed away and Rosendo continued the business, which is now being carried on by his granddaughter Joanna. He was a big supporter of Toys for Tots and donated labor and money to build the little league park in Dixon.
