Alejandro J. Muñoz

Alejandro J. Muñoz, 45, of Fontana, Calif., died Wednesday, May 2, 2018. In 2004, he helped rescue a 46-year-old woman from a burning sport utility vehicle in San Lucas, Calif. As flames reached the vehicle’s dashboard, Muñoz and another man entered the back of the car, pulled the woman from the front, passenger seat to the backseat area, and removed her from the vehicle through a rear door. Flames shortly engulfed the interior of the vehicle. Muñoz was born in 1972 in Los Angeles, and worked for the Union Pacific Railroad. He enjoyed spending time with his children, riding quads, mini-trucking, and watching sports, including the Lakers, 49ers, and Dodgers. He is survived by his mother, Maria Muñoz; fiancée, Pauline Copas; and four children.
