Family vows to keep Galveston bakery open after owner murdered

Posted: Updated:

It's business as usual at a Galveston bakery tonight despite a brutal attack that left the owner dead.

Juan Navarro is the hard working man responsible for setting up Navarro's Bakery, a six-year-old family owned and operated shop off Broadway Street.

"This was his dream he would tell my aunt you know and he started from inside his house in his garage" recalled Juan Lopez, Navarro's nephew.

The 59-year-old was proud of his bakery according to his family who says he devoted his life and many hours into seeing that he served only the very best pan dulce or sweet bread to his community.

That's why everyone that knew this man are in shock over who would ever want to hurt him.

Lopez says he'd worked with his uncle just hours prior to the brutal attack and says all seemed well until after-hours.

"He just decided to come one day and check on his business and I guess someone saw him by himself and they attacked him."

The incident happened last Friday night into Saturday morning but it wasn't until a patrol officer spotted Navarro's body lying in the parking lot of his business.

It appeared he had been carjacked and while he was taken to area hospital investigators recovered his car. Right now its considered "evidence" but still no arrests in the case.

"He didn't get in trouble with nobody didn't bother nobody he was a very noble man" and humbled to be living his dream making only the sweetest pastries for a community he loved.

That's exactly why his family will continue to stay open as usual while praying for justice. "This was his he worked hard for it and he struggled his whole life and this was his dream we're going to keep on doing what he would've wanted us to do."
