His beloved wife, Shirley (Louie) Cadwell, preceded him in death on Oct. 27, 2010. During her long illness, Chick would drive 100 miles a day to be with her. They shared a happy and wonderful life together for over 60 years.

Chick was born to Moses and Anna (Shimenek) Cadwell Oct. 10, 1925, at their home in Orchard Park, Colo. Chick attended Boone School until 1941. After the death of his father in 1941, he left school to help contribute to the support of his family. Chick was drafted into the United States Army in November of 1943 and was assigned to 167th Infantry Regiment of the 31st Infantry Division. His first combat action was in New Guinea in 1944 and continued with his arrival on the Island of Morotai. An article in the Rocky Mountain News sent by Army correspondents indicated that on Christmas Day 1944, Private Charles Cadwell, along with others in his group, began an 11-day patrol in search of enemy snipers. The uncharted terrain of Morotai was so dense with jungle and ragged peaks that in one day the men moved only about 350 yards from sunup to sundown. Several men were marching with towels around their feet instead of shoes, which were ruined shortly after the march began. When the company began the return trip on New Year' s Day, it was necessary for them to radio for artillery fire so they could determine their location. ' It was the worst march we' ve ever been through,'  declared Private Cadwell. Chick' s combat duty finally ended in the Philippines in the last battles of WWII. He was awarded numerous medals, including the ' Liberation of the Philippines'  Medal. ' On May 29, 1991, PRIVATE FIRST CLASS CHARLES G. CADWELL, UNITED STATES ARMY, was awarded THE BRONZE STAR medal for meritorious achievement in ground combat against the armed enemy during World War II in the Asiatic Pacific Theater of Operations.'  After WWII, Chick returned to Boone and worked for Mr. Charles Bell for many years. Around 1960, Chick went to work with his brother, Frank, who owned Cadwell' s Trucking. Chick retired from the Pueblo County Highway Department. After retiring, Chick volunteered with the Care and Share Food Bank in Pueblo. During his later years, Chick enjoyed gardening, fishing, the Broncos, the Rockies and his Western movies and TV shows.

Callahan, Katie
Katie Callahan - Denver Post - December 5, 2003 - Katie Callahan, a Denver woman so devoted to fishing and swimming that her final wish was to have her ashes scattered at her favorite fishing hole, died from a heart attack Oct. 17. Margaret Katherine Callahan was 89 when she died, "but the coroner said she would have been in great shape for a 70-year-old," said her daughter, Pat Campbell. "She swam for an hour every day," Campbell said. "We used to tease her about being part fish, because she was happier in the water than anywhere else." Callahan learned how to swim in the chilly salt water of Puget Sound, Wash., where the brothers of a family friend also taught her to fish. Her first fishing rod was a piece of driftwood with a string knotted around the middle and a baited hook at the other end of the string. Callahan caught flounder and other fish from the dock at Indianola, a beach town northwest of Seattle. As a young girl, she studied piano. Instructors thought she was exceptionally promising, and that perhaps she had inherited the skills of her mother, a concert pianist. Then Callahan's father died, leaving her mother with five children and meager resources. Callahan was 13 at the time, the second-oldest child. Her mother tried to continue the piano lessons in exchange for cleaning the piano teacher's home, but gave up. "It was too messy," said Anne Pierce, Callahan's eldest daughter. "The teacher's husband was a dentist, and he kept a clothes brush chained to the front door, to use before he went out. Otherwise, he'd never have found it." Callahan and her piano teacher gave a last concert together, playing Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto. After that, Callahan plunged into her studies, cramming four years of high school into two years and graduating at age 16. The hands that might have played pianos in concert halls instead tallied wages for the Port of Seattle, where Callahan was hired as its first female paymaster. Following a brief first marriage, she met and married Gary Callahan, and moved to Colorado to live with his parents while he was in the Navy. When Callahan and her oldest daughter stepped from the train at the Pueblo depot, she was appalled. A dry breeze sent a tumbleweed toppling over her shoe. "She used to say that her heart just sank that moment," Pierce said. For years, Callahan dreamed of returning to the Northwest. She struggled to find something lovable in her arid new home. Finally, she and her husband began weekly picnics and camping trips to Salida and Salt Creek, where he fished and she hiked with daughter Pat while Anne babysat young Jerry. When Gary Callahan got a job in Washington state one summer, Katie Callahan discovered that she preferred Colorado, with its dry but clear days, to the Northwest's truculent gray skies and almost ceaseless rain. They returned to Colorado, and bought a home near Denver. Before she died, Callahan gave her children explicit instructions. Her last outfit would include sandals - "her little old lady sandals, because although she loved pretty shoes, she couldn't wear them because of her hammertoes," Pat Campbell said - a pair of shorts, a bright yellow knit shirt she liked to wear when she went fishing, a big straw hat, earrings and a waterproof Seiko watch that she never removed. Her kids found Callahan's lifetime fishing license and tucked it into her hatband. They added her favorite fishing lure before closing the simple pine box in which she was cremated. The stainless steel hook emerged unscathed on a bed of ashes. "Well, she can't go fishing without a hook," Campbell's son said pragmatically. So when Callahan's family scattered her ashes and some yellow flowers over her favorite fishing hole last weekend, they tossed in the hook, as well. Survivors include husband Gary Callahan of Wheat Ridge; daughters Anne Pierce of Lakewood and Pat Campbell of Franktown; son Jerry Callahan of Wheat Ridge; brother Emery Duquet of Seattle; and eight grandchildren.

Cane, Frank A.
Frank A. Cane - Rocky Mountain News - October 2, 1880 - Pueblo, October 1 - Suicide Near Pueblo - Frank A. Cane, well known in this city and Denver, committed suicide by cutting his throat with a penknife last night at Trimble' s ranch, twelve miles below this city on the river. He was trying to sober up from a long continued debauch and was doubtless crazy at the time. The suicide was the head of the late firm of Cane, Forbes & Co., mining brokers, at 369 Holladay street, and left Denver some months ago for the south. His career has been that of a man made unfortunate in everything he undertook by the too free use of alcoholic beverages. He first came into notoriety through his marriage, about two years ago, which was followed by arrest on false charges while he was on the staff of a southern Colorado newspaper. Only a short time ago he was charged with absconding with money belonging to other parties. Cane was a thoroughly ' good fellow'  at heart, but his weakness for whisky triumphed over the good qualities inherent in his original nature. Free and open-handed in the use of money, he seldom had any when he needed it most, and this gave him a reputation which he did not merit. He was not more than thirty or thirty-five years of age, and in the very prime of a vigorous manhood. Central City Daily Register-Call - October 2, 1880 - Frank Cane Suicides - Pueblo, October 1 - For the past two weeks Frank A. Cane, well known in this city (and) throughout Colorado, having been at various times engaged in business in different sections of the state, has been drinking very hard, brought about troubles of various kinds and unhappy business complications needless to mention. On last Tuesday morning he sent his wife to her old home in Leavenworth, Kansas, intending to remain himself and try to build up his shattered fortunes, when he would join her or send for her to come to him. After his wife left him the unhappy man drank harder than ever. The only thought of his seemed to be to drown his cares. He blamed no one but himself for his troubles, and treated all whom he met in his usual pleasant way. On Thursday morning he was missed from the city. This morning news was brought to the city by a ranchman living down the river that Cane had cut his throat with a penknife the night previous at Tremble' s ranch, twelve miles below town, and was in a dying condition. The man said he arrived last night and asked for a place to sleep. He was given some blankets and a place to sleep in the barn. The bed was the best the man had to offer. Cane was asked if he wanted any supper and he replied that he did not, all he wanted was a place to sleep. This morning one of the men went to the barn to wake him for breakfast, and found him in a dying condition with his throat cut, the windpipe having been severed. In one hand he held the photograph of his wife, while in the other he tightly grasped the weapon of his destruction, a small penknife. He was breathing through the gash in his throat, and was able to speak. He appeared to have been rational the night before, but looked as though he was just sobering up from a long continued debauch. Medical assistance was at once sent to him, and the wound was dressed, but nothing could save him, and at 1 o' clock he died. One being asked by a friend if he had cut his own throat he replied in the affirmative and added, ' It was awful hard to cut, John, awful hard to cut; I tried it three times before I made a success of it.'  The coroner will hold an inquest upon the remains to-day, after which the body will be brought to this city for interment.

After a long teaching career that began in a local mining camp and ended in a Californian coastal town, she returned to make La Veta her home, where she stayed active in pursuits that gained her friends of every age.

She leaves many cousins, nieces and nephews and many loving friends from around the world. On her mantel were over 50 birthday cards, a testament to how she drew people into her circle who admired a life well-lived. The day before she died, she declared, ' I am happy. Just so happy. I love my home. I love looking at the mountains and the birds, and I feel so lucky in the people who care for me and in my friends.'  We all wish her Godspeed as she moves out into the Great Mystery, carried by her faith in a loving God.

Cardozo, Edna Mary
Sister Edna Mary Cardozo - Colorado Springs Gazette - January 29, 1996 - Beaten Nuns Served in Pueblo - Man With Record Charged in Slayings - Waterville, Maine - Two nuns who were beaten and stabbed - one fatally - after a prayer service in their convent had served at a convent in Pueblo during the 1970s. Mother Superior Edna Mary Cardozo, 68, who died of head injuries Saturday night at Kennebec Valley Medical Center in Augusta, Maine, served from 1976 to 1979 at the Servants of the Blessed Sacrament convent in Pueblo, according to Sister Elizabeth Madden of the Pueblo convent. Another nun, Sister Patricia Ann Keene, 68, who was in stable condition Sunday night at a Maine hospital, had also lived at the convent in Pueblo during the early '70s, Madden said Sunday. They were among four Roman Catholic nuns who were stabbed and beaten after they finished an evening prayer service Saturday when an intruder smashed the glass on a locked door, opened it, and walked inside about 6 p.m. One of the women was attacked in the chapel and the other three in an adjacent part of the convent. Sister Mary Julien Fortin, 67, died early Sunday of multiple stab wounds to the face and head, said Kennebec Valley Medical Center spokeswoman Mary Plumer. Sister Mary Anna D'Giacomo, 72, was in critical condition with head injuries. Mark Bechard, 37, of Waterville, who had a history of mental problems, surrendered without resistance when police arrived. The nuns had hired Bechard to do odd jobs around the chapel. He was supposed to start the job today. "In their compassion, they were going to give him some work," Madden said. "It's been a complete shock. It's devastating. We all know each other very closely. "They were energetic and working like people in their 40s," Madden said of the four victims. "This may be one of the most heinous crimes ever committed in Maine," said spokesman Stephen McCausland of the state Public Safety Department. He said police did not know of a motive for the attacks. The officers "took Mr. Bechard off one nun he was beating," said police Chief John Morris. Bechard was using a religious statue to beat the woman, police said. Police told Bechard to drop the statue and put his hands up, "and he did exactly what they told him to do," McCausland said. Bechard, who had worshiped in the nuns' chapel previously, was also known to police. "We have dealt with Mr. Bechard in criminal matters and mental-health matters," said Morris, adding that the suspect had been involuntarily committed to a mental hospital in 1994. He would not elaborate. Bechard was charged with one count of murder, and other charges are expected to be filed by the time he is arraigned early this week, said the spokesman. He was being held without bail. Servants of the Blessed Sacrament is an international order. It now has 15 nuns in the United States, who live in Pueblo, Waterville, and Albuquerque, N.M. The Maine convent's five other nuns were in seclusion Sunday. A handwritten sign taped to the inside of the locked chapel door said: "Chapel closed except for Mass. Pray for us."

Carson, Kit Edward
Kit Edward Carson - Pueblo Chieftain - April 14, 1992 - Descendant of pioneer Kit Carson dead at 77 - The mystique of the early West - and its colorful characters - persists a century later in legend and theater. And, not so often, in the obituaries of their descendants. Kit Edward Carson, 77, grandson and namesake of the pioneer scout, will be buried today at Higbee Cemetery. He died Friday at the Arkansas Valley Regional Medical Center in La Junta. His only son, Glenn Carson of Houston, doesn't remember many stories about his great-grandfather. "It's a strange thing about the Carsons," he said. "Kit Carson was born in 1809 and he was over 50 when my grandfather was born. My grandfather was in his 50s when my father was born." That's only three generations over 108 years, he noted. The famous Indian scout Kit Carson had eight children with his third wife, Maria Josefa Jaramillo, sister-in-law of Charles Bent, governor of New Mexico. The ranks of Kit Carson namesakes are thinning out with the generations. "My father has a cousin here in La Junta named Kit Carson. He's 81 and a bachelor," Carson said. And Glenn Carson has a 20-year-old son, Christopher, an English major at the University of San Diego. But, said his father, they call him Chris. A nephew of Kit Edward Carson, John Carson, has become the family historian. A teacher at La Junta High School, he gives talks about his famous forebear and often lectures at the Kit Carson Museum in Taos, N.M., where the scout is buried. Kit Edward Carson was born March 30, 1915 at Higbee, where his parents, Charles and Mary Carson, lived. He graduated from La Junta High School in 1933. During World War II, he served in the Marine Wing Service Squadron 9 as a crew chief for B-25 bombers. He met and married Alice Mendyke of Chicago while he was in the service, on July 17, 1943. He was sent to the South Pacific. Five months later, the young bride enlisted in the WAVES ' ” and was sent to Beeville, Texas. After the war, the couple lived briefly in Kenosha, Wis., before settling down in La Junta in 1952. He spent his career with the U.S. Post Office there, retiring in 1977. Other survivors include three daughters, Christine Wynne of La Junta, and Kathleen Carson and Rebecca Ray, both of Scottsdale, Ariz.; a brother, Jesse, of La Junta; two sisters, Stella Harrington of Kim and Anna Lange of Kenosha; and nine grandchildren. Carson was a member of the La Junta Catholic Parish, La Junta Golf Club and BPOE No. 701. Fureral services will be held at 9:30 a.m. today at La Junta Catholic Church. The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Arkansas Valley Hospice Association or to the charity of one's choice.

Cesario, Anthony A. Jr.
Anthony Cesario - Pueblo Chieftain - September 27, 2010 - Ex-NFL Lineman Cesario Dies at 34 - South Grad Spent Time with Jaguars, Dolphins - When football players get drafted into the NFL, they often times splurge on a new car or some expensive bling. Anthony Cesario wasn't like most football players. "When he got drafted, he went out and bought his hunting dog, Tucker, a beautiful black lab," said his mother, Sylvia. Cesario died of an apparent heart attack Saturday night. He was 34. "He got a lot out of football, but he really didn't enjoy it," Sylvia added. "He played as hard as he could, but he loved the mountains and the outdoors and always said that's where he was meant to be." Cesario prepped at South High School before signing with Colorado State University in Fort Collins. Under the tutelage of head coach Sonny Lubick, Cesario blossomed into a first-team All-American along the offensive line. He was taken in the third round of the 1999 NFL draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He eventually landed with the Miami Dolphins before injuries and a higher calling, the Rocky Mountains, sent him to the sidelines for good. As CSU's defensive line coach, Tom Ehlers watched Cesario mature from awkward to All-America for the Rams. "First of all, the neatest thing about him was he was a great kid," said Ehlers, who now is CSU's director of football operations. "Out of Pueblo, he was just physically so much better than everyone else that he got away with a lot of stuff. Once he got here, he proved right away that he wanted to be as good as he could be and he worked toward that goal. "He loved Pueblo and was fiercely loyal. And he loved Fort Collins and the CSU community. Why is coaching a special job? Wins are great, but meeting guys like Anthony and watching them grow and mature and give back, that's what makes it special." In 2007, Cesario was inducted into the CSU Hall of Fame. "He loved the honor but was real uncomfortable giving the speech," his mother said. Football was his profession, not his passion. Once officially out of the game, Cesario turned his love of the outdoors into a success outfitting business. He also owned a blossoming traffic control business in Fort Collins. "About 12 weeks ago or so, he said he just didn't feel right. He went to a cardiologist and had the works done," Sylvia said. "They put in a pacemaker about 3 or 4 weeks ago and he was doing great. He was released by the doctor full-throttle; in fact he saw his cardiologist just this past Friday." Cesario was guiding a hunting tour on a ranch in Walden (near Steamboat Springs) when he fell ill. "He didn't go on the final hunt with the guys on Saturday. He stayed back and watched a little football and made dinner," Sylvia said. "Then it happened so suddenly." Cesario was single. Arrangements are pending and the family expects to have memorial services in Pueblo and Fort Collins. "He was a big part of both communities," his mother said. Pueblo Chieftain - September 29, 2010 - Anthony A. "Tonio" Cesario Jr., 34, passed away Sept. 25, 2010, from a heart attack while doing what he loved most ' ” hunting in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. He is survived by his parents, Anthony Cesario Sr. and Sylvia Cesario; his sister, Lisa Cesario-Scott (Christian); and nephews and godsons, Dominic and Deion. He also is survived by his goddaughter, Dasia Carrillo; as well as numerous relatives and friends whom he dearly loved and who dearly loved him. Tonio was an alumnus of CSU in Fort Collins. He had the fortune to play football under Coach Lubick and his staff and was selected a first-team All-American his senior year and went on to be a third-round draft pick for the NFL in 1999. He was honored to be inducted into the CSU Hall of Fame in October 2007. He was the co-owner of two businesses, Work Zone, Inc. and Outwest Adventures, LLC. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to Sungate Kids Child Advocacy Center, P.O. Box 24225, Denver, CO 80224, www.sungatekids.org or Ram Strength www.ramstrength.org.

Frosty was a 1989 Pueblo South High graduate, even though he was a Central Wildcat at heart. Graduating was a big accomplishment, but nothing compared to the birth of his children. Everyone always wondered why we all called him ' Frosty.'  When he was born he had white frosty hair and the doctor called him ' Frosty.'  Thus, the great nickname began. Growing up, Frosty was a natural athlete. He participated in some of the most competitive leagues in the city. His sports included everything from basketball, football, baseball to fast pitch softball. Frosty grew so fast he was much taller than most his age so he played with the ' big boys' , many times playing on teams two to four years older. As he got older he became a father. He was a loving father. First came his son then daddy' s little girls. Frosty was one of the kindest and most generous people. He was well known in the Bessemer area. He was known by many names: Daddy, Brother, ' Hito' , Curtis, Frosty, Fra-ba, Fra, Uncle and just Chavez. When he was called Curtis he was usually in trouble. He loved the outdoors, hanging out with friends and family. He also loved to read the Bible. Frosty will be sadly missed. He departed this world much too early. He will join his grandmother, Remedios Chavez, in heaven. Vaya con dios. Rest in peace. Services will be held at Park Hill Christian Church, 1401 E. 7th St., Thursday, Oct. 11, 2007 at 2 p.m.

Chavez, Stephanie
Stephanie Chavez - Pueblo Chieftain - November 29, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1994 - 1995 - Gang Violence Erupts Throughout Pueblo - 1994 - April 24: Stephanie Chavez, a 15-year-old East High School sophomore, is shot in the head while riding with friends near the West 18th Street viaduct. She is the first of five teens to die that year from gunshot wounds. Pueblo Chieftain - April 27, 1994 - Family: Stephanie an Unlikely Victim - Family members of 15-year-old Stephanie Chavez said Tuesday she often talked about becoming a police officer to stop the kind of random youth violence that ended her life. They are unnerved by the prospect that her death could spark more of the senseless bloodshed she had hoped to prevent. "I don't believe in getting even," said Floyd Chavez, an uncle. He said he prefers to rely on law enforcement authorities and the judicial system for punishing those responsible for killing his niece. Her mother, Corrine Mojica, agrees. "More violence? That's not going to solve anything," said Mrs. Mojica. "It needs to be stopped right now." Stephanie died Monday afternoon of a head wound she suffered early Sunday morning when she was struck by a bullet fired from a passing car on the West 18th Street viaduct. Described as a quiet, happy, and neat teen-ager, the East High School sophomore was characterized as an unlikely victim of a shooting. "Stephanie was one of the last persons we thought would have something like this happen to her," said her aunt, Eleanor Carrera. "She didn't deserve it." The tragedy was unlikely also because she seldom went out, say family members. "She was a homebody; she didn't like to go out," said her mother. "Why her? She never goes anywhere and then this has to happen." With family members, Stephanie had the reputation of being responsible, reliable and mature. She also had a knack for soothing massages and a flare for style and design, they said. Frequently, she would babysit for the younger children of the extended family while others went out. "She'd babysit for us and when we'd get back, the house would be spotless; the dishes all done," said her uncle, Floyd. "Then when you went to pay her, she didn't want to get paid. Thanks was enough." All of the family members who gathered at the East Side home of Stephanie's grandparents Tuesday emphatically denied that she or any of the others with her Saturday have any gang affiliations. None of the teen-agers at the house wore any of the traditional gang-related clothing, nor did they exhibit any of the other common signs of gang involvement, including tattoos. During the interview, Darla Chavez, 18, the driver of the car Stephanie was riding in Saturday night, arrived at the home with clothing she had selected for Stephanie to wear for her funeral. Tearfully, she talked about how the two of them had been almost inseparable. "She was everything to me - my cousin, my sister, my best friend, my life, my world. I did everything with her," said Darla. "I was teaching her how to drive." The gathering of family members seemed to take some comfort in the fact that about a year ago, Stephanie had attended a drama presented at the Praise Assembly Church. "I asked her to give her life to Jesus, and she did," said an aunt, Diane Otero. Stephanie later was baptized and frequently attended services at the church, said Mrs. Otero. As the family completed funeral arrangements, there was an overriding feeling of disbelief. "It's like a dream," said Darla. "It's never going to stop hurting." A rosary will be said for Stephanie at 7 p.m. Thursday at Romero Family Funeral Home, 631 W. Corona. A funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Friday at Praise Assembly Church, 2000 Troy, and interment will follow at Imperial Gardens Cemetery.

Choe, Vincent
Vincent Choe - Colorado Springs Gazette - February 17, 2005 - 8 Die as Jet Crashes Near Pueblo - Circuit City Plane Was Trying to Land in Freezing Rain -Pueblo - Federal authorities today will start looking for the reasons a corporate jet crashed and burned Wednesday morning east of Pueblo Memorial Airport, killing all eight people on board. The victims were the pilot and co-pilot, four employees of Circuit City Stores Inc. of Richmond, Va., and two others. The identities of those killed hadn' t been released by late Wednesday. The twin-engine Cessna Citation C560 left Richmond on Wednesday morning en route to Irvine, Calif. It went down at 9:13 a.m. and burst into flames about five miles east of the Pueblo airport, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said. The crash site was near a dairy farm, west of the Pueblo Chemical Depot, where the military stores chemical weapons. The plane was attempting an instrument landing in freezing drizzle after filing a flight plan citing Pueblo as its destination, FAA spokesman Mike Fergus said. However, Pueblo County Sheriff Dan Corsentino said Pueblo was to be the aircraft' s second of two fuel stops. "Two witnesses said they heard loud popping," Corsentino said, adding that they didn' t actually see the crash. It was traveling with a companion aircraft, Corsentino said, which was 10 to 12 minutes behind it and landed safely. He did not identify who the second plane' s passengers were affiliated with but said some of them boarded commercial flights out of Denver later Wednesday to "return home." He did not give their destination. Sheriff' s deputies and investigators initially searched the site for survivors. When they found none, they cordoned off the site and waited for National Transportation Safety Board investigators. Pueblo Memorial Airport Manager Jerry Brienza said the airport has never experienced "a crash of this magnitude." "As far as I know, (the pilot) didn' t declare an emergency," Brienza said after talking to air traffic controllers. He described the weather at 900 feet as "broken sky," at 1,400 feet as "overcast" and said the wind was at 7 knots - about 8 mph. A small Mesa jet had just landed at the airport minutes before. "It' s not uncommon for aircraft to land safely in this weather," Brienza said. Circuit City confirmed on its Web site that a plane registered to the company had crashed in Colorado and had eight people on board, four of whom were employees of the company. None was an officer, the posting noted, adding no comment would be made pending notification of relatives. "Our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones during their time of need," Circuit City CEO W. Alan McCollough said in a statement to the Associated Press. Circuit City owns about a half dozen stores along the Front Range and 50 stores within 100 miles of Irvine. The investigation will be conducted by an eight-member NTSB team from Washington, D.C., headed by chairman and CEO Ellen Engleman Conners. The team was to arrive in Colorado late Wednesday. NTSB teams are sent to multiple-fatality or air-carrier crashes. The crash site, which covered a half-mile radius, was bordered by sheriff' s and coroner' s vehicles who kept vigil over the wreckage and did not remove the bodies until federal authorities arrived. Sheriff' s spokesman Steve Bryant said late Wednesday a representative from a local funeral home was on the scene to remove the bodies. Note: There is a memorial stone honoring the plane crash victims in Chico Cemetery in Pueblo County, Colorado. None of the victims were buried there.

Clark, Benjamin Dunreath
Benjamin Clark - Pueblo Chieftain - April 7, 2010 - Authorities ID Skull as Missing Pueblo Man - Benjamin Clark Was Reported Missing in October 2009 - The skull found in eastern Pueblo County has been identified as a 35-year-old Pueblo man, who was reported missing six months ago, after his burned car was discovered in that same rural area. Dental records were used by the coroner's office and an odontologist to identify the skull, which was found by a rancher Friday, as being Benjamin Clark, said Sheriff Kirk Taylor and Police Chief Jim Billings at a joint media conference Tuesday. Clark's family reported him missing Oct. 9, the same day Deputy Anthony DeHerrera found Clark's charred Pontiac Grand Am in the prairie near 62nd Lane and Garnett Road, about 25 miles east of Pueblo. Clark's last known address was on East 11th Street. Deputy Police Chief John Ercul said the area where Clark's car was found had been searched in October but nothing was found. Police and sheriff's detectives had been treating Clark's disappearance as a missing person case. On Friday, a rancher attempting to catch a calf on his property discovered the skull, Taylor said. The rancher contacted an off-duty sheriff's deputy and the skull was turned over to Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer, who determined that it was a human skull. On Friday night, detectives from the sheriff's and police departments did a brief search of the area but suspended the effort at nightfall. Detectives from both agencies, as well as police officers and deputies on horseback mounted patrol units and ATVs, searched the nearly 10,000 acre ranch again Monday. The expanded search revealed several other human bones, along with some pieces of Clark's clothing, his driver's license and vehicle registration. Sheriff's and police detectives searched the area again Tuesday, looking for more remains and other evidence. Taylor said the bones appeared to have been scattered throughout the field by animals. ' The closest remains found thus far are approximately three-fourths of a mile from where the car was burned and the farthest remains were found approximately two miles from the car," he said. The cause of death has not been determined. Taylor said the incident is being treated as a suspicious death. He said there were no obvious signs of trauma to the recovered remains. "Obviously we still have a lot of work to do to," Taylor said. He said there is no indication the body was buried. However, investigators are still examining the area. Clark's mother, Janet Clark, said Tuesday the discovery has brought some closure to her family. "We had hoped for better news but under the circumstances in which his car was found, we knew there was a possibility that the outcome wasn't going to be good," she said. "I think the only thing that I want to say is that Benjamin was a wonderful person who was loved by everyone. He is going to be missed." Anyone with information about this incident are asked to call the police department at 553-2538, the sheriff's department at 583-6250 or Crime Stoppers at 542-7867.

Clouse, Samuel D.
Samuel D. Clouse - Huerfano World Journal - March 17, 2011 - Long time Huerfano County resident Samuel D. Clouse passed away at his mountain home on Wednesday, March 2, 2011. Sam was born October 14, 1942. He was the third member of four children to join the family in Ringold County, Iowa. He was preceded in death by both parents; sister, Bonnie Pelowski Cline; brother-in-law, Jerdine Barnhart; nephew, Michael Pelowski; nephew, Daniel Barnhart; granddaughter, Lynnette DaPron; grandnephew, Cole Barnhart; and grandnephew Cody Barnhart. This list demonstrates the grief he suffered throughout his time. Sam and his wife of 26 years, Karen Clouse, pioneered the small mountain community of Shangri-La, where Sam kept the mountain roads clear for neighbors and family so they could make it home. He did this for 20 years. Sam loved his horses, dogs and the many other critters he had. Sam was able to fix anything he set his mind to. From cement work to electrical, plumbing, technology or anything else, he found a way to get the job done. This was whether he had ever seen the thing or not. He spent many years traveling to work sites from Virginia to Washington. He has taken part in building grain bins, cleaners, silos as well as helping many with construction work. Sam also traveled internationally as he worked as a millwright in Saudi Arabia, on three separate working tours. He also worked in Morocco on a tour. Family was very important to Sam. Sisters Barbara Barnhart and Elsie Mae Hardwick only had to ask for Sam' s help on a project and he would be there. His children meant the world to him. Lynda Kerstetter, Jon Clouse, Shane Clouse, JoEllen Ripple and Cheryl Ferguson also thought very highly of him. Their spouses were also important to Sam. There was nothing better than a phone call to catch up, visiting with grandchildren or the special birthday calls. Sam is survived by a host of family: sisters, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren that held a special place in his heart. Above all he was a stubborn cuss with a quick reaction for those that crossed what he felt was wrong. He did whatever he could for family and friends giving a helping hand or the shirt he was wearing. Sam was buried in his upper meadow near his mountain home on March 4, 2011. A memorial service was held at his final resting place on March 6 surrounded by family and friends.

Coama, John
John Coama - Rocky Mountain News - June 3, 1894 - The Death List - Four More Bodies Found in the Pueblo Flooded District - Pueblo, Colo., June 2 - Four bodies are now in the hands of the coroner, having been found since Wednesday' s flood. The dead thus far discovered are: Barney Rafferty, 60 years old, laborer, single; Joseph Scorafa, 20 years old, single, laborer; John Coama, 35 years old, single, a stranger, occupation unknown; Mrs. Caroline Izar, 60 years old. Coama' s body was found at 9 o' clock this morning, standing bolt upright in a house in the flat back of Lannon' s foundry on Santa Fe avenue, near the river. He had been in the city but a few days, and as he was fully dressed it is supposed that he took refuge in the house and escape was cut off by ten feet of water. Mrs. Izar' s body was discovered at 3:30 this afternoon in her house at 114 North Mechanic Street, in the flat east of the city hall, where the water was eight feet deep. She had apparently gone to bed, for she was clad only in her night dress. When she awoke escape was impossible. She and her husband, John Izar, a shoemaker, have been living apart and she was alone in the house, which was not known to be occupied and was not approached by any of the numerous rescuing parties. As time goes on grave fears are entertained that the list of fatalities will be increased, and diligent search is being made in the locality where the bodies were found today, that being believed the most likely district of the occurrence of drowning. Something of a sensation was created today when the post mortem was made on the body of Rafferty, the first found, who was supposed to have met death in the swollen waters of the Bessemer ditch. The back of his head was broken and as he had just received a sum of money foul play was thought possible. His lungs contained no water, so that the suspicions are confirmed. His money and valuables, however, he had left at his boarding place and they were recovered.

Coffman, David
David Coffman - Colorado Springs Gazette - February 17, 2005 - 8 Die as Jet Crashes Near Pueblo - Circuit City Plane Was Trying to Land in Freezing Rain -Pueblo - Federal authorities today will start looking for the reasons a corporate jet crashed and burned Wednesday morning east of Pueblo Memorial Airport, killing all eight people on board. The victims were the pilot and co-pilot, four employees of Circuit City Stores Inc. of Richmond, Va., and two others. The identities of those killed hadn' t been released by late Wednesday. The twin-engine Cessna Citation C560 left Richmond on Wednesday morning en route to Irvine, Calif. It went down at 9:13 a.m. and burst into flames about five miles east of the Pueblo airport, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said. The crash site was near a dairy farm, west of the Pueblo Chemical Depot, where the military stores chemical weapons. The plane was attempting an instrument landing in freezing drizzle after filing a flight plan citing Pueblo as its destination, FAA spokesman Mike Fergus said. However, Pueblo County Sheriff Dan Corsentino said Pueblo was to be the aircraft' s second of two fuel stops. "Two witnesses said they heard loud popping," Corsentino said, adding that they didn' t actually see the crash. It was traveling with a companion aircraft, Corsentino said, which was 10 to 12 minutes behind it and landed safely. He did not identify who the second plane' s passengers were affiliated with but said some of them boarded commercial flights out of Denver later Wednesday to "return home." He did not give their destination. Sheriff' s deputies and investigators initially searched the site for survivors. When they found none, they cordoned off the site and waited for National Transportation Safety Board investigators. Pueblo Memorial Airport Manager Jerry Brienza said the airport has never experienced "a crash of this magnitude." "As far as I know, (the pilot) didn' t declare an emergency," Brienza said after talking to air traffic controllers. He described the weather at 900 feet as "broken sky," at 1,400 feet as "overcast" and said the wind was at 7 knots - about 8 mph. A small Mesa jet had just landed at the airport minutes before. "It' s not uncommon for aircraft to land safely in this weather," Brienza said. Circuit City confirmed on its Web site that a plane registered to the company had crashed in Colorado and had eight people on board, four of whom were employees of the company. None was an officer, the posting noted, adding no comment would be made pending notification of relatives. "Our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones during their time of need," Circuit City CEO W. Alan McCollough said in a statement to the Associated Press. Circuit City owns about a half dozen stores along the Front Range and 50 stores within 100 miles of Irvine. The investigation will be conducted by an eight-member NTSB team from Washington, D.C., headed by chairman and CEO Ellen Engleman Conners. The team was to arrive in Colorado late Wednesday. NTSB teams are sent to multiple-fatality or air-carrier crashes. The crash site, which covered a half-mile radius, was bordered by sheriff' s and coroner' s vehicles who kept vigil over the wreckage and did not remove the bodies until federal authorities arrived. Sheriff' s spokesman Steve Bryant said late Wednesday a representative from a local funeral home was on the scene to remove the bodies.

Rocky Mountain News - May 3, 1882 - Inquests - The inquest over the remains of James Cole, another unfortunate victim of yesterday, which was held this evening, elicited no further important facts except that he appeared to be what is known as a crank, and that he was a heavy drinker.

Collins, Luther
Luther Collins - Pueblo Chieftain - March 8, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1918 - 1919 - Pueblo Goes to War and a Deadly Flu Strikes - Look out, Kaiser! Here comes Bessemer!" That was the sign at Union Depot one chilly April morning in 1918 as another contingent of boisterous Pueblo draftees headed off to Army training camps in California and Kansas - just part of the 16,000 Pueblo-area men who registered for the draft in World War I. Pueblo's newspapers were bursting with pride as American soldiers, dubbed "Sammies" by reporters, began heading overseas that spring' ¦ It had to be a frightening time for Pueblo families because the newspapers were full of stories of terrible fighting in blood-drenched France. Gas attacks and terrible artillery barrages. Meanwhile, Pueblo's boys were writing home about life in Army camps, letters that often were printed in the papers. Innocent and sentimental accounts of "good chow" and high morale... Pueblo, like the nation, was on an austerity budget to help with the war effort. There were "wheatless" days and "lightless" nights. When the regional federal fuel administrator suggested that Pueblo citizens might want to "go to bed an hour early" or conduct combined church services to help conserve coal, Pueblo churches immediately sent back a terse "no thank you." All the patriotic fanfare, however, was dimmed a little on Feb. 6 when the troop ship Tuscania was torpedoed and sunk, killing hundreds. On board was Pvt. Paul A. Williams of Pueblo. He was the first of 52 local men who would die in the war. Pueblo families had to be anxious as they knew their sons and brothers (as well as daughters who were Red Cross nurses) came ever closer to the endless trenches and carnage of The Front. On March 1, a dispatch from Gen. John J. Pershing's headquarters in France said that Lt. Robert R. Cooper had been wounded in fighting. "Bob" Cooper, a South Sider, was praised for being the "first Puebloan to take a Hun bullet for his country." But April brought news of U.S. troops in heavy fighting in France and suddenly the Army dispatches became terse and grim. The Pueblo newspapers began printing the daily casualty lists. First of a dozen names. Then another 50 names. The stories only gave the soldiers' names and ranks, not their hometowns. The names were divided by categories: killed in action, died from wounds, missing, died from disease, or wounded. On April 10, a frighteningly long casualty list of 400 names was published, taking columns of print. But that would quickly become routine. By July 1, more than 5,000 "Sammies" had been killed and 6,000 wounded' ¦ All summer, the fighting raged in Europe, even though it was clear that Germany and Austria were at the end of their strength. Of course, the fresh American units were being pushed into the fighting and Pueblo's boys were now appearing on the lists of the killed: Carl Simonson, Dean N. Jenks, Charles Merriam, William Butt, Steve Lucero, Luther Collins.

Colmenenly, Alexander
Alexander ' Big Tex'  Colmenenly - Rocky Mountain News - June 15, 1890 - ' Big Tex'  - The Skeleton of the Old Desperado Exhumed at Pueblo - Pueblo, Colo., June 14 - Several old citizens have identified the shackled skeleton uncovered here yesterday. It belonged to Alexander Colmenenly, known as ' Big Tex,'  lynched on April 11, 1867. The man was a lawyer by profession from Tennessee or Kentucky, and during the war commanded a company of union rangers. He fought at the battle of Mill Spring and claimed to have killed General Zollicoffer. After the surrender at Appomattox he came west and organized one of the largest and most desperate bands of horse and cattle thieves ever known on the Dry Cimarron in New Mexico. On one occasion he killed two Mexicans and ran off with 3,000 sheep. But this was by no means his greatest act of villainy. The daring deeds of the gang at last attracted the attention of the United States government, and the Seventh cavalry and Fourteenth infantry were detailed to look the matter up. ' Big Tex'  murdered a Sergeant Barrett of the cavalry in a cowardly way, and after being captured at Nine Mile bottom was brought to Pueblo. His immense strength, proportionate to his height of 6 feet 4 inches, was well known, and to prevent his escape they handcuffed and shackled him. The shackles were made by Governor Norton at the blacksmith shop of Norton & Galloway, and were riveted around his ankles. Three days after his arrival he was taken out of the frame hut where he had been kept and hung. He was buried with the shackles and the next night resurrected and his head cut off. The skull is now in possession of Dr. Thombs, superintendent of the insane asylum.

Colton, Charles
Charles Colton - Rocky Mountain News - August 8, 1889 - A Fatal Draught - An Ignorant and Insane Tramp Takes Morphine - Trinidad, Aug. 7 - Some time ago, a matter of two weeks or so, there was arrested on the charge of vagrancy a man who has been a familiar sight in the streets of Trinidad. When arrested it was under the name of Charles Cooper. The case against him was proven and he was sentenced to seven days. During the time that he was confined Jailer Caldwell thought he discovered signs of insanity in his charge. He was a kleptomaniac, going so far as to steal stockings off the feet of one of his sleeping companions in the jail. These and other indications led the jailer to bring about an examination as to the sanity of the prisoner, and an examination was to have been held today. While in confinement Harry Ambrest, who is well and unfavorably known here as a morphine fiend, was incarcerated in the same cell as Cooper, who, by the way, said that his proper name was Colton. Tuesday afternoon while Ambrest was asleep, Cooper or Colton went through Ambrest' s pockets and found a vial of morphine, which is said to have contained about twenty-five grains of the drug. This Colton placed to his lips regardless of the label on the bottle telling the deadly contents. One of the jailers in his rounds was shown the empty bottle and informed of his act by Colton. Medical attendance was immediately summoned and all possible attention given the case. Attendants were by the side of the unconscious vagrant and idiot all night, and yesterday morning he seemed to respond to their attention by breathing freer. Notwithstanding, at about 2 o' clock he died. Official orders were given to remove the body to the undertaker' s, where an inquest will be held on Thursday. The morphine fiend was ordered to help move the sick man while yet alive to the old county jail and during the process skipped out. The deceased was undoubtedly crazy and so illiterate a man that he was ignorant of what he was doing. Ambrest has since been apprehended and taken into custody.

Comi, Stephen L.
Stephen L. Comi - Pueblo Chieftain - September 29, 2005 - Pueblo's 'Music Man' Dies at Age 81 - Steve Comi was the music man of Pueblo. "Steve was probably one of the top influences on music in this community," said Jim Marcum, who played for years with Comi in the Pueblo Municipal Band. "He had a strong influence on music educators and professors in the community and he was a fine leader." Comi, 81, died Monday. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Montgomery and Steward Chapel. Comi is survived by his wife, Caroline; his mother, Louise Comi and three grown children. Comi took up playing the saxophone in fifth grade and his love of music blossomed such that by the time he graduated from Centennial High School in 1942, he was the leader of a 10-piece band named the Steve Comi Band. The band would perform at dances throughout the city. After graduating from Centennial, Comi enlisted in the Army and served through the end of World War II. As a soldier in the 7th Army under Gen. George Patton, Comi was awarded a Bronze Star for his actions during a battle in Remilly, France. Following his discharge from the Army, Comi returned to music. He obtained a bachelor's degree in music education at the University of Colorado. He then worked as a music teacher in Kansas and Nebraska. He later earned a master's degree from CU and returned to Pueblo to become the instrumental music director at his alma mater, Centennial. In 1995, Comi was inducted into the Centennial Hall of Fame for his contributions to music. In addition to teaching, Comi remained active in playing various woodwind instruments in local bands from the Colorado State Fair Rodeo and Stage band to the Pueblo Municipal Band. In 1976, Comi was named the director of the Municipal Band. "He was a very strong director," said Marcum, who played in the Municipal Band under Comi's leadership. Marcum later became the director of the Municipal Band. "He was responsible for pulling the band up in a quality away from the sluggard band image," he said. "He really, really developed the band into a very fine band and musical ensemble. He took it a long way musically." But playing music wasn't Comi's only gig. He also was a master at repairing instruments. For years, he owned the Sick Instrument Clinic where he repaired everything from woodwind to string instruments. Even after he sold the business, Comi continued to repair instruments at Rob's Music and most recently at Marck Time Music. Comi repaired instruments at Marck Time up until earlier this year. "He was an artist," said Richard Wright, who teaches music at Marck Time Music and John Neumann Catholic School. "If a horn came in that looked impossible to fix, Steve would look at it for a while and then go home and make some kind of tool and come back and fix it. He was a miracle worker."

Domingo Contreras, 40, Castle Rock, received severe lacerations on his head and face and bruises to his back. The victim' s body was taken to the Nolan Funeral Home by E & E Ambulance, the patrol said. Patrolman Albert L. Smith who investigated the accident said Contreras lost control of the car at the interchange. It veered off the road, striking three guardposts, went back to the road and then went off the road again where it struck another post. The vehicle then went over the embankment between the freeway bridges, and was air born for a distance of 91 feet. While in the air the car struck a western union pole, throwing both men from the left side of the car onto the railroad tracks. The car continued to the left where it lodged in a drainage ditch under the southbound freeway bridge. Smith was assisted in the investigation by Lt. Kent Moline, Sgt. Jake Abendschan and Officer Gordon Baumgardner, of the patrol. The death of Contreras raised the state' s traffic fatality toll to 55, five more than at the same time last year.

Cook, Barbara
Barbara Cook - Greeley Daily Tribune - May 3, 1950 - Pueblo Sheriff, Woman Deputy Die in Plane - Greeley, Neb., May 2 - Two persons, identified from papers as Sheriff Joe E. Tucker and his deputy, Mrs. Barbara Cook, both of Pueblo, Colo., were killed today in a plane crash seven miles northwest of here. The victims were identified by papers found in pockets of their clothing. County Attorney Barrett said the cause of the crash was unknown. There was no fire and no evidence of gas about the wreckage, Barrett said. And he speculated that the plane may have run out of gas. He said the plane apparently had stopped at Julesburg, Colo., earlier in the day for gas. A marked map indicated it may have been en route to Brainerd, Minn., Barrett said. The county attorney said Colorado authorities had been notified. In Pueblo, Undersheriff Joe DeJoy said Tucker, who had observed his 38th birthday Monday, was en-route to Brainerd, Minn., to take Mrs. Cook to the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Zoffee of that city. Mrs. Cook, DeJoy said, was the wife of Theodore F. Cook, who was sentenced recently to a one-year term in the state penitentiary for burglary. The couple had been separated, but Mrs. Cook came to Pueblo when her husband was arrested, he said. She was about 35. Tucker, who was elected sheriff in 1948 on the democratic ticket after having been defeated in 1946 by the same opponent, Earl H. Dunlap, is survived by his wife, Ethel. The couple had no children. DeJoy will serve as acting sheriff until a successor to complete the unexpired term, which ends next January, is appointed by the board of county commissioners. Tucker's 1946 try for the sheriff's job was his political debut. He was manager of the former army air base for about a year prior to 1948 when that facility was taken over by the city of Pueblo. Tucker, according to his flight instructor, Joe Rocco, obtained a private pilot's license last January. Rocco said Tucker made the fatal flight in a 1947 four-place plane which he had purchased last Friday from a Denver aviation firm. Rocco said Tucker had about 80 hours flight experience. John Smith, Greeley county sheriff, said it had been foggy in the area earlier in the day. However, he said, he did not believe visibility was limited enough at the time of the crash to hamper flying. The sheriff said Roger Mucahy, Greeley, had noticed the plane flying low about a mile from the crash scene. The plane did not appear to be in trouble, Mucahy said. Witnesses said wreckage of the plane was strewn for 250 feet from the point of the crash. The bodies of both Tucker and Mrs. Cook were badly mangled, Barrett said. Tucker's body was found about 50 feet from the crash, that of Mrs. Cook about 20 feet distance. A loaded .38 caliber revolver was found in the wreckage, Barrett said. The bodies were taken to the Finn mortuary at Greeley.

Cooley, Douglas Lee
Douglas Lee ' Lee Douglas'  Cooley - Pueblo Chieftain - February 5, 2012 - Lee Douglas, longtime sportscaster, dies at 57 - Douglas Lee Cooley ' ” known to generations of Pueblo radio and television sports fans as broadcaster Lee Douglas ' ” died Saturday night at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital. He was 57. Cooley was sports director at KOAA News 5 at the time of his death. He was a well-known personality at local television and radio stations for the past 35 years. "We are all in shock," Greg Boyce, content director at News 5, said Sunday afternoon. "He was the nicest guy in the world." Boyce, a friend of Cooley's since elementary school, said Cooley was supposed to work his sports anchor job this weekend but went to the hospital on Saturday because he was feeling ill. Local television stations were reporting that Cooley died of kidney failure. Nick Donovan, another longtime radio personality and close friend of Cooley's, said the broadcaster drove himself to the hospital and was quickly put into intensive care. "It's hard to believe he's gone," Donovan said Sunday. Montgomery & Steward Funeral Directors is handling arrangements. A big, affable man who was known for his warm personality, Cooley was a music and sports enthusiast, especially when it came to Pueblo sports. Along with being a sports broadcaster at KOAA and KRDO-Channel 13 during his career, he was the radio voice of the Air Force Academy Falcon football team for years. "Lee worked hard over his career to become a great communicator and he was," Boyce said. "He really knew how to write and tell stories with pictures. If I ever went on a quiz show, I'd want Lee with me because he knew everything about sports and oldies (rock and roll)." Michael Langley, news director for News 5, said Cooley was as friendly in person as he seemed to viewers. "He was a consummate professional, but he had a gift for making people feel they'd known him all his life," Langley said. Cooley had numerous awards to his credit from the Colorado Broadcasters Association and The Associated Press. Readers of The Pueblo Chieftain named him the best broadcaster in Southern Colorado in 2006. Chieftain Managing Editor Steve Henson had known Cooley since both began their broadcasting careers in the 1970s. He said Cooley's pleasure in his work was genuine. "Just the other night, I was watching him on KOAA and remarked, 'Isn't it great that he's so enthusiastic after all these years?' ' Henson said. ' It's amazing to have someone so thrilled about local sports." Cooley was inducted into the Greater Pueblo Sports Association Hall of Fame in 2005. He left broadcasting for a short time in the 1980s to work as an assistant city manager. "Lee was a really capable guy who handled the public relations for City Council and the city," said former City Manager Lew Quigley. "He really did a lot for this community. This is such a shame." Cooley told Chieftain sports reporter Jeff Letofsky in a 2008 interview that he wanted to be a professional athlete as a boy ' ” "Mickey Mantle or Willie Mays" ' ” but realized he didn't have that kind of talent. So even as a young teenager, he started thinking about a sports broadcasting career, sometimes doing play-by-play into a tape recorder for neighborhood games. "I was infatuated with broadcasting," he explained. Becoming a radio disc jockey while still in college, Cooley adopted the broadcast name Lee Douglas. He understood that he was a popular local sports figure, but it was a recognition he carried gently. In that Chieftain interview, he said he'd learned to become comfortable with strangers at the grocery store or on the street treating him as an old friend. "I had a lady at Walmart tell me, 'You're like one of the family. You come into our house every evening'," Cooley recalled. "I never take myself too seriously. I'm not a doctor, lawyer, cop, or fireman," Cooley added. "I'm lucky. I have a job that pays me for what I'm doing and it's something that I love."

Cooper, Charles
Charles Cooper - Rocky Mountain News - August 8, 1889 - A Fatal Draught - An Ignorant and Insane Tramp Takes Morphine - Trinidad, Aug. 7 - Some time ago, a matter of two weeks or so, there was arrested on the charge of vagrancy a man who has been a familiar sight in the streets of Trinidad. When arrested it was under the name of Charles Cooper. The case against him was proven and he was sentenced to seven days. During the time that he was confined Jailer Caldwell thought he discovered signs of insanity in his charge. He was a kleptomaniac, going so far as to steal stockings off the feet of one of his sleeping companions in the jail. These and other indications led the jailer to bring about an examination as to the sanity of the prisoner, and an examination was to have been held today. While in confinement Harry Ambrest, who is well and unfavorably known here as a morphine fiend, was incarcerated in the same cell as Cooper, who, by the way, said that his proper name was Colton. Tuesday afternoon while Ambrest was asleep, Cooper or Colton went through Ambrest' s pockets and found a vial of morphine, which is said to have contained about twenty-five grains of the drug. This Colton placed to his lips regardless of the label on the bottle telling the deadly contents. One of the jailers in his rounds was shown the empty bottle and informed of his act by Colton. Medical attendance was immediately summoned and all possible attention given the case. Attendants were by the side of the unconscious vagrant and idiot all night, and yesterday morning he seemed to respond to their attention by breathing freer. Notwithstanding, at about 2 o' clock he died. Official orders were given to remove the body to the undertaker' s, where an inquest will be held on Thursday. The morphine fiend was ordered to help move the sick man while yet alive to the old county jail and during the process skipped out. The deceased was undoubtedly crazy and so illiterate a man that he was ignorant of what he was doing. Ambrest has since been apprehended and taken into custody.

His mother moved her children to her hometown of St. Bernice, Ind., where Gordon attended high school. He enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 18 and found himself fighting the Germans in the Battle of the Bulge. Wounded and sent home to recuperate in 1945, he fully expected to return to fight the Japanese after VE Day. He always felt he owed a debt of gratitude to President Harry S Truman for sparing him that duty. He was awarded the Purple Heart with three Oak Leaf Clusters, the Bronze Star and the Good Conduct Medal, and the EAME Ribbon with three battle stars, for his military service. On his return to civilian life, Gordon made full use of the GI Bill and enrolled at Indiana University, where he obtained his law degree from Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis. He moved his family to Colorado Springs, Colo., in 1962, where he began the practice of law. Soon he began commuting to Pueblo to work as a Pueblo County deputy district attorney under Carl Parlapiano. He moved his family to Pueblo in 1965. In 1972, he left the D.A.'s office to open a private practice. He was appointed by Gov. John Vanderhoof to the Pueblo County bench in November 1974. He served as a county judge until his retirement in 1992. He then served as a senior judge throughout the state for the next 12 years. Judge Cooper was a member of Scottish and York Rites, Al Kaly Shrine, Past Master of Silver State Lodge No. 95, and he obtained the highest degree of Masonry, the 33rd degree. He was a member of Pueblo Kiwanis Club, Pueblo Elks Lodge No. 90, the Footprinters and the VFW. He served on the Pueblo Board of Housing Authority for 17 years, where he proudly assisted in the renovation of numerous low income housing projects, including the Vail Hotel, the Rood building and Santa Fe Crossing. Gordon was a devoted symphonic music and opera lover. He credited Indiana University with opening him up to the wonderful world of music. His mind was a steel trap when it came to sports statistics. He enjoyed all sports, especially college and pro football and college basketball. He was loyal to the Denver Broncos and to all sports played by his beloved Indiana University Hoosiers. Judge Cooper had high personal integrity and always strove to be just and fair. He defended the rights of all. He loved Pueblo and all it offered, and had a special love of Mexican food. His family would like to thank the staff of Westwind Horizon for their loving and devoted care during the last year of his life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Shriners' Hospitals for Children in care of Montgomery & Steward Funeral Home.

Cordova, Donaciano
Donaciano Cordova - Pueblo Chieftain - September 16, 1997 - Florence to Observe Pioneer Era - Frances and Leo Cordova of Florence will reign as Pioneer Day queen and king during the 70th Pioneer Day festivities Friday and Saturday in Florence. A celebration of this town's coal, oil and farming heritage will highlight 70th annual Pioneer Day festivities Friday and Saturday. Lifelong Florence residents Leo and Frances Cordova will reign as Pioneer Day king and queen. Cordova was born in Florence and remembers the town's rich farming hey day. "I started working on the farms when I was 10 years old. I got paid 10-cents an hour," Cordova recalled. Cordova said his father, Donaciano, worked in a local coal mine. In 1945, the elder Cordova was one of 11 miners working underground when the mine began to cave in. "He was the lead man to get out, but instead of him running out, he helped all the other miners get out. He was trapped and the only one who died in the accident," Cordova said. Ironically, it was a fate Cordova's grandfather also had met in a Red Wing mine near Walsenburg. Cordova, who was 16 when his father died, made a promise to his grieving mother, Felicita Cordova-Solano, that he would never work in the mines. Note: Donacino Cordova is listed as a victim of a mining disaster of January 10, 1945. Donacino Cordova: Death at Rockvale, Mine Number 3, Fremont County, owned by C.F. & I.

Christina Cornejo - Colorado Springs Gazette - July 18, 2012 - Murder victim was mother, National Guard officer - Springs murder suspect commits suicide in Utah - The 39-year-old woman found dead in southwest Colorado Springs on Friday was a mother of four and a 2nd lieutenant in the Colorado Army National Guard. Cristina Cornejo, a 13-year Colorado Springs resident, enlisted in the National Guard in June 2006 and juggled her pursuit of a full-time career as an officer while raising three sons and a daughter. Cornejo served as a career counselor with the Guard's Recruiting and Retention Battalion before attending the Officer Candidate School on Fort Carson, where she graduated in August 2010. She was promoted to 2nd lieutenant in 2011 and served with the 100th Missile Defense Brigade, receiving several honors. "Cristina was not only a stellar soldier, but a fantastic young leader who set high standards," Maj. Gen. H. Michael Edwards, commander of the Colorado National Guard, said in a statement on Tuesday. "Her contribution to the Colorado National Guard will be truly missed. We will do everything we can to support her family during this most difficult time." In the statement, the Colorado National Guard said it would "provide any assistance needed" in the ongoing investigation into Cornejo's death. Cornejo's body was found in the 1000 block of Cheyenne Villas Point near Fort Carson on Friday morning. Police and Fort Carson officers spent about four hours Friday searching for Brian Joseph Hedglin, 40, who Colorado Springs police spokeswoman Barbara Miller called the primary suspect in the death. Cornejo's death was ruled the 13th homicide in the city in 2012. Hedglin committed suicide Tuesday after attempting to steal a SkyWest plane from a St. George, Utah airport. Miller said Tuesday that detectives would continue to investigate Cornejo' s death ' to tie up all the loose ends and make sure that (Hedglin) was indeed the person responsible.'  Memorial services will be Friday for Cornejo. There will be a visitation beginning at noon at the Cappadona Funeral Home, 1020 E. Fillmore St. The funeral will be at Cappadona at 1 p.m. with burial at 2 p.m. at Memorial Gardens, 3825 Airport Road. Pueblo Chieftain - July 16, 2012 - City's 13th Homicide Victim Identified - Colorado Springs Police have identified the city's 13th homicide victim of 2012 as Christina Cornejo, 39. Cornejo's body was found at a home on Cheyenne Villas Point on Friday. Pueblo Chieftain - July 17, 2012 - Colorado murder suspect tried to steal plane - Salt Lake City - A SkyWest Airlines employee wanted in a Colorado murder attempted to steal a passenger plane from a small southern Utah airport then shot himself in the head after crashing the aircraft in a nearby parking lot, officials said Tuesday. Brian Hedglin, 40, scaled a razor wire fence at the St. George Municipal Airport early Tuesday then boarded the 50-passenger SkyWest jet while the airport was closed, St. George city spokesman Marc Mortenson said. Mortenson said the man used a rug to scale the airport's security fence in the middle of the night, drove the plane past a terminal building, clipping the wing, then crashed into cars in an airport parking lot. The plane never left the ground. A police officer making rounds found the plane idling, boarded it and found Hedglin dead with a gunshot wound to his head, Mortenson said. Hedglin was wanted in connection with the death of Christina Cornejo, 39, in Colorado Springs. Her body was found Friday by police doing a welfare check at the request of her family. Her death has been ruled a homicide. The Gazette of Colorado Springs, citing court records, reported that Hedglin dated Cornejo for four years and was arrested in March after police say he had been harassing her. The newspaper said he was free on $10,000 bond when Cornejo was found dead. The Utah airport remained closed to commercial traffic as the FBI and the Transportation Security Administration investigated the incident. Skywest officials said there were no passengers aboard the CRJ200 and the plane was not in service at the time. In a statement, the airline would say only that the incident involved one of its employees who had been on administrative leave. A dozen flights leave or arrive at the St. George airport each weekday, according to the airport's website. Most run between southern Utah and Salt Lake City, with two flights connecting St. George and Los Angeles. Skywest said its passengers are having their itineraries rearranged. The CRJ200 made by Bombardier is capable of flying up to 534 mph with a range of 1,700 miles. Normally it has a two-person flight crew and a single flight attendant. Denver News Share - Brian Hedglin was wanted for questioning in the death of his former girlfriend, Christina Lopez-Cornejo, of Colorado Springs. Pilot Wanted In Homicide Takes Plane, Crashes, Commits Suicide - Brian Hedglin Was Wanted For Questioning In Death Of Colorado Springs Woman Denver Channel News Team - St. George, Utah - A commercial pilot wanted in a Colorado Springs murder case killed himself Tuesday after he stole a SkyWest jet and then crashed it at a Utah airport while trying to escape capture. Brian Hedglin, 40, a SkyWest pilot, was wanted for questioning in the death of his former girlfriend, Christina Lopez Cornejo, of Colorado Springs. Authorities said Hedglin drove his motorcycle to the St. George Municipal Airport in St. George, Utah around 12:30 a.m. local time, placed a rug over the razor wire fence, hopped over it and got on board a 50-passenger SkyWest Bombardier CRJ200 jet. Hedglin started the engines, apparently used thrust reversers to back up and began to taxi the plane. The left wing of the jet clipped the jet bridge and part of the terminal building when he tried to turn. The jet continued into a parking lot where it hit several vehicles before coming to rest on its collapsed nose gear. Part of the left wing had been sheared off when it contacted the terminal building. A security guard patrolling the area called SkyWest Airlines, and a SkyWest maintenance employee was able to shut down the engines from the outside, according to officials. The guard then boarded the plane and discovered Hedglin' s body. He had died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The plane never left the ground, authorities said. ABC News Photo - This photo, obtained by ABC News, shows the Skywest jet that was taken and crashed at St. George, Utah. The airport was closed at the time and the plane was not in service. Lopez Cornejo, 39, was found dead inside Hedglin's apartment last Friday in the 1000 block of Cheyenne Villas Point. She had been stabbed multiple times. Police had been called there at the request of a relative, who feared for the safety of Cornejo. Investigators immediately identified Hedglin as the primary suspect and had been actively searching for him since Friday, Colorado Springs police said. Detectives even contacted SkyWest to have them deactivate Hedglin' s access cards in the event he showed up at the airport. 7 NEWS has confirmed that both Hedglin and Lopez Cornejo were members of the Colorado National Guard. Christina Lopez Cornejo was in the Colorado National Guard. She was a second lieutenant in the 100th Missile Defense Brigade and he was a specialist in food service, or a cook, said Capt. Darin Overstreet, with the Colorado National Guard. A Colorado Army National Guard news release issued Tuesday identified Hedglin as a food service specialist with The National Guard who has no specialized training, and who has not deployed. He enlisted in October 2008. Lopez Cornejo enlisted in April 2006 and was a soldier in good standing. "She was an outstanding new officer who had already made a significant impact on our organization," said Col. Gregory Bowen, commander of the 100th MDB. She will be greatly missed by her military family. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family." According to court records, Hedglin was arrested on March 11 for larceny, damaging property and crimes against a person, as related to a domestic violence case in Colorado Springs. Authorities are looking into why Hedglin went from Colorado Springs to Utah and how he got in the jet. He had an airline transport pilot rating, which meant that he was qualified to fly commercially as a captain. SkyWest said that he had been placed on administrative leave but did not say why. SkyWest is cooperating with the FBI, St. George Police, and the TSA in a joint investigation. The case has broad implications about airport and airplane security at U.S. airports. SkyWest spokeswoman Marissa Snow told the St. George Spectrum that all passengers who were traveling to or from St. George on SkyWest flights were directed to Cedar City, Utah during the airport' s closure. They were then transported by ground to St. George. General aviation aircraft flights at the airport were not affected. SkyWest is a regional airline based in St. George that operates flights for United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, US Airways and Alaska Airlines, with a fleet of 314 aircraft.

He moved to Pueblo in 1950 and retired from the Pueblo Army Depot having worked as a Pershing missile electronics repairman. David taught his children to be hard and honest workers.

He was not ashamed of the Gospel and never hesitated to share his testimony. David received his calling from God in the trenches of the South Pacific.

Interment, Mountain View Cemetery. Pueblo Chieftain - January 2, 1999 - Three Die in Shooting Rampage - Gunman Kills Woman, Her Father, Wounds Her Mother, Takes Own Life - Three people were killed and one critically injured Friday night in an apparent murder-suicide at a Pueblo South Side home. Police said a man went to 416 S. Prairie, the home of a 22-year-old woman that he knew; authorities were working to determine the nature of their relationship. There, he shot her visiting parents - the father died; the mother underwent surgery and was in critical condition at presstime - before fatally shooting the young woman, then taking his own life. Authorities would not release the names of the four pending notification of next of kin. They reportedly were Puebloans. The parents - each shot in the chest - fled to their daughter's next-door neighbor's home at 412 S. Prairie, where they collapsed. Meanwhile, the woman, 22, blocked herself in a room and telephoned "911" to summon help. Police believe the gunman broke into the room, shot the young woman and then himself. When the Pueblo police SWAT team entered the house, they found the bodies of the gunman and his victim. They were pronounced dead at the scene. The young woman's parents were rushed to St. Mary-Corwin hospital. The father, believed to be in his 50s, was pronounced dead on arrival; his wife, 45, was in critical but stable condition after surgery, according to hospital spokesman Larry Holdren. First-aid crews said it appeared the wounds were from a large-caliber handgun. Police were busy investigating and unavailable for much comment late Friday. Police Chief Jim Billings, who was at the scene, described the shootings as "a murder-suicide." He said his officers were working to determine the exact motive. Also late Friday, police were investigating reports that the young woman had a daughter who was not at the home when the shooting took place. The shooting occurred in one of Pueblo's older but quiet neighborhoods, directly across the streets from Washington Day Care Center (formerly Jefferson Elementary School). Nearby neighbors said they heard a single gunshot about 6:20 p.m. but when they went outside, the area was quiet. Not long after, police and rescue crews arrived at the scene. The SWAT team - unaware the man already had shot the young woman and himself - waited about 30 minutes before entering the house. Friday's murders came exactly three weeks after the murders of two other Puebloans. On Dec. 11, Julie Ann Padilla, 15, and Albert DeHerrera, 26, were found beaten to death in their respective homes. Police have said the killings were not related. There have been no arrests made in either case. Pueblo Chieftain - January 3, 1999 - Police ID Victims, Detail Shootings - Pueblo police on Saturday released the identities of the victims of the Friday night shooting rampage that left three people dead and a woman clinging to life. Police also identified the man they believe shot the victims before killing himself at the South Side home of his former girlfriend. Shawna Marie Thomas, 22, of 416 S. Prairie Ave., and her father, Richard Allen Thomas, 44, of 7 Purdue, both died Friday night. Ms. Thomas' stepmother, Alicia M. Walters, 45, also of 7 Purdue, was shot in the chest and underwent emergency surgery late Friday night at St. Mary-Corwin hospital. She was listed in critical but stable condition Saturday night, according to a hospital spokesman. Thomas Alan Courtney, 31, of 46 Briarwood Circle, was pronounced dead Friday night after shooting the three family members and then turning the .40-caliber pistol on himself. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said autopsies performed Saturday on Thomas, Ms. Thomas and Courtney confirmed that they died from gunshot wounds. Thomas died from a shot to the chest while Ms. Thomas and Courtney each died from a single gunshot wound to the head. Kramer said that results of toxicology tests, which would determine whether drugs or alcohol were in the systems of any of the deceased, will not be available until midweek. Police Sgt. Kim Wittrup said Thomas and Walters had gone to Ms. Thomas' home Friday evening to help her install electronic equipment she had received for Christmas when Courtney came to the house he had once shared with Ms. Thomas. Wittrup said it was only 4-6 weeks ago that Courtney had moved out of the house at 416 S. Prairie for unknown reasons. He said neighbors did not know if the two were still seeing each other. Sources said Courtney got off work at the Marriott Hotel, where he worked as a waiter, at about 5 p.m. Friday and went home before going to Ms. Thomas' home. At about 6:15 p.m., Courtney arrived at the house and knocked on the side kitchen door, located on the north side of the home. The elder Thomas answered the door and immediately was shot in the chest by Courtney. He then shot Walters in the chest before he entered the home. Thomas and Walters were able to run to a next-door neighbor's home, where they collapsed on the front yard, according to Wittrup. The residents at 412 S. Prairie took the two victims into their home until rescue personnel arrived. Thomas died from his injuries shortly after he arrived at St. Mary-Corwin hospital. Hearing the shots, Ms. Thomas ran to the bathroom and locked herself inside in an attempt to escape from Courtney, Wittrup said. While inside the bathroom, Ms. Thomas was able to call police on a cordless phone and tell dispatchers that somebody in her home had been shot. But before police could respond, Courtney shot at the doorknob and was able to get inside the bathroom. Police believe he then confronted Ms. Thomas and shot her once in the head. Shortly after that, he shot himself in the head. When police arrived at the home, which is located across the street from Washington Day Care Center (the former Jefferson Elementary School), they were told by neighbors that the gunman was still inside the house at 416 S. Prairie and that Ms. Thomas was possibly being held as a hostage. There also was concern for the welfare of Ms. Thomas' 3-year-old son, Michael Todd Rosendale. Initial reports that Ms. Thomas had a young daughter were incorrect. Wittrup said police later learned the boy was staying with his father in Denver. Police SWAT team members were called and they, along with several uniformed officers, surrounded the house. After breaking into the home, police found the bodies of Courtney and Ms. Thomas in the bathroom. They both were pronounced dead at the scene. Wittrup said a review of police records indicated that there had not been any previous incidents of domestic violence involving Courtney and Ms. Thomas. He said Courtney had previous brushes with the law, but would not say what those incidents were. "They were not domestic violence-related," he said. Records at the Pueblo County Sheriff's Department indicate that Courtney had been arrested and booked into county jail five times since 1991. In 1991, he was arrested for vehicular assault. His most recent arrest was in November 1997 for first-degree criminal trespass, a felony. The other three arrests were for undisclosed traffic-related violations. As court records are unavailable on weekends, it was not possible to determine if Courtney actually was charged in any of the five arrests. And police refused to release details of any of the incidents or Courtney's status with the courts at the time of his death. Pueblo Chieftain - January 3, 1999 - Victims Well-Known in Pueblo - Richard Thomas Jr. was making a new life for himself at the time of his death, relatives say. Thomas and his daughter, Shawna, were shot to death Friday night by Shawna's former boyfriend, Thomas Courtney. Thomas' wife, Alicia Walters, also was shot. She was in critical but stable condition Saturday night at St. Mary-Corwin hospital. Thomas, 44, who had always loved working with computers, graduated from Denver Technical College three months ago with a degree in computer science. He then went to work for Gateway Computer Corp. in Colorado Springs, where he was employed as a computer hardware engineer, commuting from his Pueblo home. The night he was killed, Thomas had gone to his daughter's home at 416 S. Prairie to help her install new home audio equipment she'd received for Christmas. Alicia Walters, 45, Rick's wife, was a 1971 graduate of Pueblo's East High School. She owned and operated a medical transcription service. Shawna Thomas was the great-granddaughter of Helen and the late Tony Ianne, patriarch of several Pueblo restaurants. A 1995 graduate of Central High School, Shawna had worked at Rosario's, one of the family's restaurants. At the time of her death, she was employed by Pueblo Community Health Centers. Her father also worked for many years at Ianne's Pizzeria on Northern Avenue, a still-successful Pueblo fixture for more than 50 years. In a 1989 Chieftain article about the Ianne family, Rick Thomas noted how he had worked at the pizzeria since grade school: "My grandpa (Tony Ianne) put me to work here when I was 12 years old, putting stickers on the cellophane we used to wrap the pizzas we sold in the stores. He paid me 50 cents an hour and I thought I was in the chips. I've been here pretty much every since." Michael Todd Rosendale, Shawna's 3-year-old son, was with his father, Michael Rosendale of Denver, at the time of the slayings. Thomas "Tom" Alan Courtney, 31, had recently started working as a waiter at the Marriott Hotel, and previously had worked at Rosario's and Ianne's Whiskey Ridge, another family restaurant. Marriott officials declined Saturday to comment on his work record or say how long he had been employed there. Courtney graduated in 1986 from South High School and had attended the University of Southern Colorado. He is survived by his mother, Frances Courtney, a longtime and very popular starter-ranger at the Pueblo City Park Golf Course; and two brothers. George McCarthy Funeral Home is handling arrangements for all three victims. Pueblo Chieftain - January 7, 1999 - Killer of 2 Drunk at Time of Murders - The gunman in the New Year's Day double homicide/suicide was extremely intoxicated at the time of the shootings, Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said Wednesday. Kramer said Thomas Courtney, 31, had more than three times the amount of alcohol in his system than the level at which state law considers a person to be under the influence. "He had an elevated blood alcohol content level," Kramer said. The coroner said the level of alcohol in Courtney's system exceeded .3 percent; .1 percent is considered under the influence. Courtney went on a shooting rampage Jan. 1 at the home of his former girlfriend, Shawna Marie Thomas, 22, of 416 S. Prairie. Ms. Thomas and her father, Richard Allen Thomas, 44, were shot by Courtney and died at the scene. Thomas' wife, Alicia M. Walters, 45, also was shot in the chest, but survived and is being treated at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital. Funeral services for the father and daughter victims were held Wednesday. Courtney was buried on Tuesday. Kramer said toxicology tests on the shooting victims were not performed because there was no indication that drugs or alcohol contributed to their deaths.

Cowing, Frederick E.
Frederick E. Cowing - Huerfano Journal - November 21, 2012 - Article by Nancy Christofferson - Frederick E. Cowing died 62 years ago this week. Besides being an early county official, Cowing was a successful businessman, stockraiser and loyal member of the Masonic Lodge. Cowing was born in 1856 in New York, and in 1883 was married to Susan Evans in Ohio. There is some discrepancy about just when the Cowing family arrived in Walsenburg. A biography of F.E. in 1948 says it was 1879, so we will accept that date. This biography also says that, after returning to Ohio for his wedding, he moved to the Gardner area and took up raising sheep and opened a store. His partner in this enterprise was Louis C. DeCamp, county clerk and recorder of the time. Cowing became deputy clerk in 1882. It appears Cowing stayed in the upper Huerfano Valley until 1889, when he returned to Walsenburg and went into the feed and grocery business with J.R. Canon. What relation, if any, J.R. was to pioneer Benton Canon is unknown. The 1885 census shows F.E., 29, ranchman, and S.J., 27, wife, living west of Gardner near the Watkins clan. Cowing was back in Walsenburg by July 1889 busily building a feed store ' in the Captain Hendren block.'  It was on Fifth Street, and the store measured 25 by 60 feet ' “ large for the time. That 1948 biography states the site was where Unfug and Peet had their mortuary at the time, which was 115 East Fifth. Later in August he and Canon added the grocery department. Cowing and Canon soon moved to a new location on Main Street, in what was called the Walsen block. Fred Walsen had started a new bank and built four stores alongside in 1889, an expenditure of $8,000. The bank was on the corner of Main and Fifth streets, and the stores, lined up to its south, were initially occupied by Peter Krier' s shoe shop, J.B. Johnson the jeweler, Cowing and Canon and the post office. Cowing is credited with beginning the store that became known as the Star Grocery, so his store was at 507 Main. Competitors in 1889 included M.L. Swift, the Unfug brothers and the Jellisons. The town also had several meat markets, bakeries and confectioneries. In 1890 there is a mention of the Cowing store on Capitol Hill being the agent for La Veta flour, so he may have had another outlet farther north. That year he' d built a ' picturesque'  home at 418 Kansas Avenue. Cowing converted his and Canon' s first store, on East Fifth, into a grain warehouse. They placed the doorway along the alley so that patrons could drive their wagons inside without blocking the street. In 1898 Cowing enlarged his Main Street store when he moved into the neighboring building by having an archway cut out between the two store spaces. Whether Cowing was reticent or merely did not need the business, he consistently managed to stay out of the Walsenburg business directories until 1901, when his listing claimed he was serving as mayor. Actually, he had been mayor in 1894-96, and was a town trustee in 1901, having been first elected in 1899. He held this position until 1905. Another business listing in 1901 was for ' S.E. Cowing, hay, grain, feed and groceries.'  The only S.E. was Mrs. Cowing, Susan. Cowing, in addition, was elected to the Walsenburg School District No. 4 Board of Education in 1897. F.E. and Susan had five children. Their sons were Maurice E., born in 1887, and Frederick E. Jr., born in 1903. The latter died at age 18, while Maurice, instead of following his father into the grocery business, went to work for the First National Bank where he worked his way up to head cashier by 1930. He was also a director of the institution from around 1909 until his death in 1950. The couple' s daughters were Clara, Ruth and Eleanor. Clara married Ward Thornton in 1916 and died in 1967 in California. Ruth married Welling A. Sumner in 1910 when he was a lowly clerk for a coal mine. He improved his fortunes and became part owner of the Caliente Fuel Company which owned the Ravenwood and Maitland mines. Welling died in 1935 and Ruth in 1978. The couple had had two children who had both predeceased them. Eleanor married Ford Frick in 1916. He, too, was a clerk for a coal mine, Cameron, but was also a coach at Huerfano County High School. From Walsenburg he ascended a career ladder that included radio sportscasts and sports writing that attracted the attention of William Randolph Hearst. From the newspaper business he moved to being a public relations director for baseball' s National League, and later the same year, 1934, he became league president and served as such until 1951. From 1965-68, he was Major League Baseball Commissioner. After helping to establish the Baseball Hall of Fame, he was named to it in 1970. The Ford Frick Award goes annually to ' major contributions to baseball.'  He died in 1978. He so overshadowed his wife she is never mentioned in his biographies. From the Walsenburg newspapers, however, it is known the couple returned almost annually to visit Eleanor' s family. In 1919 Cowing sold his grocery business to John Foley and William McPhail, who renamed it Star Grocery. They also remodeled the premises by installing new windows on the front. McPhail soon sold out his interest and, after a disastrous fire several remodelings inside and out, Foley sold Star Grocery to Nick Magnone and Paul Riccatone in 1940. Riccatone dropped out and Nick was joined by his son Charles Magnone until they sold to Darwin Smallwood in 1966. The grocery closed soon after that. Maurice E. Cowing Jr., son of M.E. Sr. and May, died in 1964 and his widow Millie sold their home in Walsenburg and moved away. And that ended the Cowing influence and activity in Walsenburg, after three quarters of a century.

Pete and Betty owned and operated Artichoke's restaurant and lounge for 30 years. Betty enjoyed traveling, baking, ceramics, the Broncos, watching her softball teams play. Most of all, she loved bingo, cards and family gatherings. She was always ready to go gambling with Rose, Carm, Mike and Katie. Even in her last few years if her son, Petie (Francine), would mention Cripple Creek, there would be no way to back out of taking her. She enjoyed pulling the slot handle so much her hands would be black. I would drop her off at the top of the hill and park the car toward the bottom so she could go to all the casinos. If she were to lose some money, we would have to move to the next casino. She always wanted to win. We would call her ' Bingo'  Betty for years. We even teased her that bingo at 6 was like punching a time clock. So much to say about her life, not enough space in the world could begin to tell everyone about the life and legacy of Elizabeth Horvat Cozzolino. She enjoyed her family to the fullest, always taking care of us, embedded in our souls for all eternity. I would like to thank my daughter, Doreen, for the kindness and care she gave her grandmother; her children, Darryl and Tony and their girls, Liz and Michelle; Joey Copp, for all the jazzy rides he went on with my mother; son-in-law, Rodney, for all the football games he watched with Grams; Rick, for always bringing my mom some kind of trinket she enjoyed; and to Bunny and Mimi, for being such great friends.

Crooke, J. (Dr.)
J. Crooke - Rocky Mountain News - September 30, 1885 - A Victim of Insomnia - Dr. Crooke Who Died in Pueblo Monday Night - Dr. J. Crooke, who died of a wound inflicted by a pistol in his own hands in the Victoria hotel, Pueblo, on Monday night, came to Denver on the Burlington express, which arrived at 7 o' clock on Sunday morning, September 6. Several prominent residents of Denver came through from Chicago in the same sleeping car with the doctor, all who formed his acquaintance liked him greatly. The reports concerning his death say that he stayed in the Pueblo ten days and was drinking heavily during a great part of his sojourn there. He showed no signs of being addicted to drink on the way from Chicago to Denver or during his subsequent stay of several days in this city. To some of his fellow passengers he said that his home was in Australia - most probably in Melbourne - and he was on his way thither. He was an Englishman by birth and was a finely educated and polished gentleman. There is strong reason to believe that he was wholly out of his mind when the fatal shot was fired. On the way from Chicago he told one of his fellow travelers that he had suffered fearfully from insomnia for years, and had reached that dreadful stage of the disorder when drugs had lost their power to afford relief. If he drank heavily in Pueblo it is probable that he did so to lesson the long agony of sleeplessness, or else that his nervous system had become so deranged by his disease that he did not know what he was doing. He spoke of having a wife and two young children, to whom he was greatly attached. They are supposed to be in Australia. He seems to have left no papers of any kind to identify him, and his remains are in the hands of Undertaker Sweeney, of Pueblo, Colo., awaiting a claimant. He brought a letter of introduction to a gentleman in Denver, which may be the means of informing his relatives of his sad and untimely fate.

Jim fought cancer as any brave Marine would, sacrificing his life to win the battle, never giving up. Jim was born in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Nov. 20, 1939, went around the world as a Marine and experienced countless adventures throughout his life before settling in Flagstaff to raise his family and develop a successful business that still is family-owned and run. He lived and breathed life to a standard only he could achieve, true to form of ' Semper Fidelis.'  As he lived, he passed along the secrets of life to those he knew would be raising his grandchildren ' ” his legacy ' ” with the understanding that ' money and power mean nothing and that good always triumphs over evil.'  As a savvy businessman with multiple projects across the United States and expanding beyond the borders, Jim' s major concern was to take care of his wife and family. This legacy will live on for many years. Although he received many awards during his lifetime, it was the prestigious ' Legion of Honor Award'  from the Chapel of the Four Chaplin' s and ' Marine of the Year'  Memorial Award he cherished the most, as well as his work with the Marine' s Toys for Tots organization. Jim was a spiritual man and loving brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend and provider; he will be missed. Jim was preceded in death by his father, Jim. He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Mary Ann; and their four children, Jim, Kelly (Audrey), Tony (Michelle) and Kathleen (Earl); 10 siblings, Jerry, John, Kenneth, Enid, Mike, Pat, Chris, Mary Ann, Katie and Elizabeth; as well as his loving mother, Francis, whom he cherished the most. Jim also was a proud grandfather to Courtney, Kathleen, Caitlin, Sam, Ashley, Anthony, E.J., Keeley and Cullen; and great-grandfather to Makale and Noah. Jim' s loyalty and friendship were unprecedented. If you knew Jim, you knew of his humor, integrity and willingness to give, both of which can be seen in those he called his friends and how he called them. Friends like Fat Joe, Speed Taylor and his confidante The ' G. B.'  always were scheming against each other, trying to gain the advantage to tell the unforgettable story. The challenge for us all will be to continue Jim' s zest for life and willingness to put others' needs in front of our own to continue to build the community Jim was trying so hard to achieve. Semper Fidelis Marine Jim Cullen . . . Semper Fi. In lieu of sending flowers, please send a donation to Chase Bank account No. 2955786955 that will be given to Jim' s favorite charities. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. today at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Flagstaff, Ariz. Interment with military honors will follow the funeral Mass.

Cummins, Leone Castleberry
Leone (Castleberry) Cummins - Pueblo Chieftain - September 8, 1993 - Branson Pioneer Dies - When Leone Cummins was only 13, she was literally cranking out a Colorado newspaper by hand in the then-thriving town of Branson. It was 1920 and the heyday of the Homestead Acts that brought thousands to the arid land along the Santa Fe Trail Cutoff where Emory Gap offered entry to New Mexico. The girl, then Leone Castleberry, did virtually everything for the paper, which was started by her American Baptist minister father. "She cranked the press by hand, set type by hand, took money for want ads, rolled the papers up, addressed them and mailed them," her son Tom Cummins of Pueblo recalled Tuesday. Mrs. Cummins died Sunday in a Trinidad Nursing Home at age 86. Until last December, she had remained in her home in Branson. The Las Animas County News enjoyed a brief five-year life in Branson between 1920 and 1925, when she married Walter Cummins, a local rancher. In those days, Branson had a population of about 1,000, Tom Cummins said. "It had grain elevators and was a bustling community." And Walter Cummins and his three siblings each owned a full section. His brand was the OK and rodeos were regular events. Tom Cummins recalls that crowds of 400 or more would show up. "They had a corral but no chutes. So they'd get aboard in the corral, then turn them out onto the prairie. It was the same with the roping." But the good times would fade in the depression of the '30s. Cummins stopped trucking his cattle to Denver, the nearest sales yard when he couldn't get back the freight cost. "I have a 10-cent check that he never cashed, the net of one cattle sale." With cattle worth little or nothing, ranchers left them on the land to multiply and overgraze the prairie. Cummins had bought out his brothers and sisters and owned some six to eight square miles, when "he finally gave up." "The government had a program in the '30s. They'd buy your cattle and shoot 'em," Tom Cummins said. It was sad, he said. "It seems like that's your wealth." But even the Depression had its sweet side. "My mom had this big garden and even when they couldn't pay their bills, she had this cellar with rows and rows of fruit jars and sausages, hams." Mrs. Cummins sold cream for a family income of about $5 a week. In 1937 the couple moved into town and opened Walt's Trading Post, although Branson itself had declined. They operated the post until 1972. Funeral services for Mrs. Cummins will be at 10 a.m. Thursday at Branson Community Church followed by interment at Branson Community Cemetery.
