It is with great sorrow that the Lujan family announces the passing of its beloved patriarch on December 20, 2022.

He is preceded in death by his parents Gloria (Kniffin) Lujan, Senovio Lujan, his brother and sister-in-law Michael Sr. and Judy Lujan.
After achieving his Master’s degree in Social Work, Victor had an amazing career as an administrator for several organizations; Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Council, ENIPC Food Distribution Program, the Pueblo of Nambe, Nambe Pueblo Housing Entity and various local acequia associations. His accomplishments in helping his community were numerous and continue to be felt to this day. His loss will leave a tremendous void in our lives.
