Dahl, Edval F.
Edval F. Dahl - Trinidad Times Independent - July 11, 2010 - Edval F. Dahl (Ed) was born in Sopris Jan. 21, 1917. He died July 9, 2010. Ed was preceded in death by his father, John Albert Dahl, his mother, Addie Koelling and his daughter, Treva Mary Adlof. He is survived by his wife Mary Dahl, his daughters Geri Gooden and Karen Johnson, and his sons-in-law John Gooden and Luther Johnson. He had nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Ed (Papa, Great Papa, Gran-Gran) lived life on his own terms. He was jack-of-all-trades and a roustabout in his younger years. He graduated from Dawson (N.M.) High School and traveled to California to work in the orange groves and help build a dam in California. He eventually made his way back to Dawson where he worked in the Dawson Coal Mine. He was drafted into the Army during World War II and served in the Pacific in New Guinea and the Philippines as a Sea-Bee, building and repairing landing strips. When his stint in the Army was over he returned to Dawson and coal mining, and he met the woman who would be his wife of 64 years, Mary Yob Skender. Mary and Ed lived in Dawson until the Phelps Dodge Corporation closed the mining town and they moved to Raton. Raton was to be his home for most of his life. He loved the outdoors and shared his love of fishing with his children and grandchildren and anyone who would grab a pole and go with him. It would not be unusual to see him on a Saturday or Sunday fishing Cimmaron River with his fly rod and waders or at Lake Maloya, grandchildren and great grandchildren in tow putting worms on their hooks and teaching them how to cast. Papa was a gardener. He was well known around Raton for his zucchini, corn, green beans, peaches and apricots that he generously passed around. Even the bears enjoyed his garden…he and the bears had an ongoing feud. Pops was a treasure hunter…he spent countless hours walking around the mountains and hills searching for gold. He had all of the equipment that he would need with him…he found some gold, however secretly, I think he loved the wide open spaces and the solitary pursuit and just getting away from the “rush” of the big city of Raton. He loved people but he liked his time alone. Ed was a woodcarver — his passion was working with wood — he would collect wood of all kinds. His favorite thing to do was to sit in the basement and carve. Many of us have pieces that he has carved and many more of us have things that he built or repaired for us. All the grandchildren and great grandchildren loved to go into the basement…that wonderful basement full of all kinds of treasures…no one needed TV or video games…the basement held such fascination for children of all ages. We love you Papa…you were the man who captured our hearts with your twinkling eyes, a smile that lit up your face…a man of few words but a heart full of love. One last ole' Pops as we tip our glasses to you. We know you are in heaven planning where you are going to plant your garden, searching for places to mine for gold, looking for a special piece of wood to carve and fly fishing in the cold stream. The family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Mt. Calvary Cemetery Fund C/O St. Patrick/St. Joseph, 104 Buena Vista St., Raton, NM 87740. Please visit our online guest book for Ed at RememberTheirStory.com. Arrangements by French Mortuary of Albuquerque. Recitation of the Most Holy Rosary was July 19 at St. Patrick's-St. Joseph's Catholic Church recited by Frank Cimino, Jr. Solemn Mass of the Resurrection followed with Father Daniel Balizan as the celebrant. Arrangements under the direction of Yaksich-Long Funeral Home in Raton.

He married Edna Langford in 1934 and they moved to El Paso, TX where their daughter, Norma was born. John worked in mining and aviation with a thirst for knowledge that led him to the field of oxygen and acetylene production. This is the skill that enabled him to travel around the world many times in solving production problems and the installation of plants. He and his family lived in Los Angeles and Henderson, NV in the early and mid 1940's. The U.S. Navy then hired him for two years to install and operate plants on a base in Bermuda.

Between assignments, John and his family made their home with Edna's parent in Hotchkiss, CO.

However his travels were not yet over. Edna and John bought and operated a fruit ranch in Palisade where they made many special friends. At the time of his retirement they sold the fruit ranch and moved to Pioneer Village in Clifton where Edna passed away. Several years later John moved to the Atrium in Grand Junction, where he met many new friends and enjoyed a lot of pinochle games.

The air patrol found the plane Thursday while flying over the remote, mountainous region to check out a report of a signal from an emergency locator transmitter. Colorado Civil Air Patrol Maj. Ed O'Brien has said the wreckage could be that of a missing North Carolina plane. The site is along that plane's intended flight path. Pueblo Chieftain - September 17, 2012 - Two people who died in a plane crash Thursday in Huerfano County have been identified. Steven Huber, 57, and Bruce Dalton, 69, were killed when their small plane crashed in rugged terrain, Sheriff Bruce Newman said today. Newman said the two men are believed to be from Hillsboro, N.C. County Coroner Della Duran was not available for comment this afternoon on funeral arrangements for the men. Winston-Salem Journal - September 18, 2012 - 2 NC men die in Colorado plane crash - A Durham financial consultant and a retired Orange County physician died when a private, single-engine plane crashed last week in Colorado, authorities and family members said Monday. The victims were identified as Steve Huber, a financial consultant at Pinnacle Funding, a mortgage broker at Brightleaf Square in Durham; and Dr. Bruce Dalton of Hurdle Mills. Authorities found the small-plane wreckage in southern Colorado's Huerfano County. Sheriff Bruce Newman said the Colorado Civil Air Patrol found the plane Friday at an elevation of about 12,400 feet. He said two men were on board. Newman said the air patrol found the plane while flying over the remote, mountainous region to check out a report of a signal from an emergency locator transmitter. He said the bodies were recovered Saturday morning. Dr. Dalton's daughter, Audrey Dalton Reichardt, said in an interview Monday that her father and Mr. Huber were en route to the Reno Air Show in Reno, Nev., “just for fun.” She said she wasn't sure who was piloting the 1988 Mooney 201, which originated from the Person County Airport. Both men were authorized to fly the plane, which belonged to Dr. Dalton. Mrs. Reichardt said they made stops along the way. The last airport they took off from was in Pueblo, Col., she said. Colorado authorities said Monday they were awaiting official confirmation of the men's identities from the Huerfano County coroner. “The FAA [Federal Aviation Administration] will be doing the investigation, so our part of it is pretty much done,” the sheriff said. Dr. Dalton, 69, lived on his horse farm at 4909 Brock Drive in the Orange County community of Hurdle Mills. He was master of Red Mountain Hounds, a fox hunting club, Mrs. Reichhart said. “He's been flying his whole life,” she said. “It's just a hobby.” She said her father and Mr. Huber were good friends who enjoyed flying. “The trip was kind of a bucket-list trip,” she said. “It was something that the two of them had been talking about for years.” She said they planned to return home directly from the Reno trip. Dr. Dalton was a graduate of Davidson College and the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. He was born in Lenoir, and moved to the Triangle in the mid-1980s. He served in the U.S. Army as a pediatrician, and after retiring from the military, went into the occupational health and safety field, working for Northern Telecom. Mrs. Reichardt said her father was well-known in the community. “He was active in his church, and was very loved,” she said. “It's a big loss.”

Daney, William
William Daney - Pueblo Chieftain - July 10, 1994 - Famous Train Engineer is Pulling Out of Town - Train lover Bill Daney has a twinkle in his eye and a quick laugh for all visitors. When Bill Daney was a lad, he must have considered himself one of the luckiest boys in Pueblo. His father was a railroader on the Denver and New Orleans, and when his train was near the old yards on Fourth Street, "Dad would have the engineer whistle and I could walk over by the side of the tracks and get aboard. “ I sat in the fireman's seat and could pull the bell cord." Now in his 90s, he still claims a love affair with steam, one that drove him to build more than a dozen and a half model locomotives, including the small-scale train he built and operated at City Park from 1958 to 1975. But Daney will be leaving Pueblo, his lifelong home, next week to live with a son, Bill, in Waco, Texas, following a recent stint in the hospital. Daney came by his love of trains not only as a boy privileged to ride in a steam locomotive, but from listening to his father, Michael William Daney, tell stories about being part of the Rio Grande crew laying track through the Royal Gorge and witnessing the historic linking of the country at Promontory Point. But the elder Daney died when Bill Daney was in the seventh grade. He had to go to work. He got jobs in the mill during summers - in the cooper's shop building kegs, then working hydraulic lifts (or "pulling doors") in the open hearth. He'd work until he was laid off, then find a job on the railroad. "I was a switchman on the Rio Grande for a while," he said. "I liked that all right in the summer, but not when cold weather set in." When he was 15, Daney finally settled down to apprentice at CF&I in the foundry. He retired in 1967 from the roll-turning mill where they made rolls to roll steel. At 27, he married his beloved Isabelle Stevenson. Her death in 1991 remains a telling blow. But he began building model locomotives before his marriage, although Mrs. Daney became chief ticket taker on the City Park line. "I built my first one in 1924 and took it to the fairgrounds in 1925," he said. That's where a captain in the fire department suggested that "it would be interesting to put little cars behind it." So Daney made himself some drawings, ordered lumber cut to size from King's Lumber and built the little cars, including a caboose. It was the beginning of the City Park train, which the Daneys operated outside the park initially. Daney built and sold his other locomotives to men from Illinois to Arizona from his workshop in their home on Polk Street. His early ones went for as much at $4,000, a good deal of money in Depression days. "It was about the price of an automobile," he said, a very expensive automobile at that. As he is fond of chuckling, he added, "The difference between the men and the boys is the price of their toys." Daney admits he couldn't "do everything. My shop was really an assembly plant." He had the help of such folks as Johnny's Boiler Shop and John Gobatti's machine shop. Both sons, Bill and David, had their turns with the City Park train. First, when David was only about 5, Daney would "knock the fire out of the engine and reduce the boiler pressure. He would run the train around until the steam was all out of it." When they were older, the boys operated the train themselves. As for Mrs. Daney, "she did a time or two. She was not enthusiastic; she didn't like the smoke." One of Daney's favorite train trips is on the Silverton-Durango narrow gauge run. "We were one of the first rides, taking up one of (Otto) Mears rails and we were talking to the brakeman. There were all these raspberries alongside the road. My wife said how wonderful they looked," he said. The brakeman stopped the train, got out and picked a whole bucketful of raspberries, then moved the Daneys and his own family into the caboose for the treat. "I hate to leave Pueblo," he repeats from time to time. Pueblo will hate to see him go. A reception will be held for him July 16 from 2-5 p.m. at Pueblo Manor. Pueblo Chieftain - August 9, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1962 - 1963 - When Camelot Lived, and Died - They Made a Difference - William Daney - Children of all ages who have enjoyed a ride on the City Park Lakeshore Line miniature railroad owe a debt of gratitude to William Daney. The CF&I steelworker built the City Park engine in 1951 and built more than a dozen miniature railroad engines during his career. He and his family operated the City Park line until 1975 when the city purchased the railroad for $15,000, about one-third of its true value. Daney said the little railroad put his children through college. He died at age 97 on May 5, 1996.

She was born July 10, 1916, in Campo, Colo., to Everett "Cap" and Mabel Hewitt. She was raised in Springfield, Colo. As a young girl, Frances attended beauty school in Omaha, Neb., then held her first job in Manitou Springs. She held a lifetime love for that little mountain town, especially the Cliff House. She worked at Rena's Beauty Shop in Springfield for three years until she married George Davis in 1938. They moved to California during the WWII years but returned to Springfield, where they stayed until 1969. When her husband could no longer work, due to an illness, Frances went to nursing school at Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins.

Later she moved to Denver, continuing her work with Dr. Blease, then the intensive-care unit of a large nursing home. After retiring, she embraced the big city with gusto.

She traveled to Hawaii on her own and had the time of her life. When her health began to fail, she moved to Pueblo, where three of her daughters lived.

She looked forward to receiving the morning paper to do the crossword puzzles, in ink no less. She continued to work those crosswords even in the nursing home.

Davis, Frances K.
Frances K. Davis - Pueblo Chieftain - January 4, 2009 - Frances K. Davis passed away on Dec. 30, 2008. Born Mary Frances Killion to Mary Margaret (Shannon) and Claude E. Killion on July 16, 1932, in Las Animas, Colo. Raised in Southern Colorado in a ranching life, Francie was the first Spanish Peaks Fiesta Queen in 1946. The family moved to the Greenhorn Mountain Ranch in 1950. She graduated from Huerfano County High School in 1951, and attended Colorado A&M (CSU) Fort Collins for one year, before returning to Huerfano County and a position in the telephone office as an operator. She started dating Marvin Davis after losing a political bet to him over the projected outcome of the 1953 county sheriff's race. Francie and Marvin were subsequently married in the Methodist Church of Walsenburg on June 6, 1954. She continued in her telephone operator position while Marvin ranched with his father, Arthur Davis, east of Walsenburg. Their first child, Gena Sue, was born in April of 1955. The family purchased and moved to the current farm and ranch headquarters, east of Walsenburg, in 1956. Jill Ann was born the same year. Claudia Gaye joined the crew in 1958, and Jesse Scott followed in 1960. Francie spent the ensuing years in partnership with Marvin raising their family, managing the farm and ranch operations, and becoming renowned for her baking and cooking abilities. There was never a stranger at the Davis table. A place was set and guests were treated to a fare that was unequaled and unforgettable. The question was not whether you wanted pie for dessert, but what kind of pie. Francie would take special orders for pecan pie, her specialty, chokecherry jelly, and . . . the list goes on and on. For a number of years, Francie was as an aide and secretary in Walsenburg schools. She served throughout her life in the community helping to form the Huerfano Fire Protection District, supporting school district functions and church activities. Always a proponent and vocal advocate of the ranching life, she served as secretary/treasurer of the fair and rodeo association, leader and fundraiser for the County 4-H and a lifetime member and officer of Cowbelles. Recently, her energy and attention were spent closely following the political wrangling surrounding the proposed expansion of Fort Carson's Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site and its impact on the ranch. Although her courage and strength was challenged with a battle with leukemia, Francie's sense of humor and approach to life was never lost. She was preceded in death by her father, Claude Killion in 1957; her mother, Mary Margaret "Madge" Killion in 1986; her sister, Jeanette Salmon Jackson Wight; and her brother, Billy Scott Salmon. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Marvin J. Davis; children, Gena (Lyle) Kenner of Linton, N.D., Jill Davis Homerding, C. Gaye Davis and J. Scott Davis of Walsenburg; four grandchildren, Katelin Renee Davis, Denver, Kelsey Michelle Davis, Colorado Springs, Hallie Ann Homerding and Billy Scott Carruth, Walsenburg; a nephew, Larry Scott Jackson, Sonora, Calif.; special brother- and sisters-in-law, cousins, extended family and a lifetime of friends.

As was true of many couples marrying at this time, Jack and Janice spent the early years of their marriage in separation while Jack served as an engineering supervisor bomb-proofing the locks of the Panama Canal and Janice performed drafting duties in Brownsville, Texas, converting DC-3 airplanes from civilian to military use. After the war Janice and Jack settled in Fremont where they established a construction business and raised their four sons. Janice was a long-time member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, was a passionate researcher of her family's genealogy, was an active member of the Congregational Church and was a devoted mother to her sons supporting them in Boy Scouting, school band, theater, swimming and many other activities. Since the 1970's Jack and Janice spent as much time as they could at their second home in La Veta. They often made a summer getaway to escape the heat of Nebraska and they always came to enjoy the fall colors. After Jack's passing Janice realized a life-long dream to leave her hometown, Fremont, when she moved permanently to La Veta. Janice enjoyed her years living in La Veta. She never missed a parade. She regularly partook of services at the library and she enjoyed senior lunch services. She loved the annual Art in the Park and ate Rotary Bar-B-Que every summer. She supported 4H and enjoyed the associated rodeo most years. She was happy in La Veta. She particularly loved the animals that are a part of rural living.

Marvin was raised on the family ranch and graduated from Huerfano County High School in 1953. Following graduation, Marvin continued ranching with his father on what had become a prosperous sheep and cattle operation, the origin of which was a homestead half-section patented in 1917. Forever a steward of the Colorado plains, Marvin's life was the ranch, which will be honored in 2017 as a Colorado Centennial Ranch. Marvin married the love of his life, Francie Killion, on June 6, 1954, in the Methodist Church, Walsenburg. They were married for 54 years. Marvin and Francie spent the ensuing years in partnership managing the farm and ranch operation and raising four children.

Tenacious, ambitious, strong minded, authentic and with a heart of gold, Marvin never met an opportunity he did not find interesting and time after time proved that courage through his many endeavors. Some but certainly not all of these were taxi driver, freight and livestock trucking, heavy equipment operation, dairy farming, trapper and school bus driver. His most recent venture was the development of Colorado Mountains & Plains Outfitters with his son, Scott; and Mark and Heather Valdez, a fulfillment of his love of hunting and the great outdoors. Marvin served throughout his life in the community. Member and past president of the Upper Huerfano Soil Conservation District, Walsenburg Club member, a founder of the Huerfano County Land Stewards Association and an advocate of Pinon Canyon Expansion Opposition Coalition were just a few of his many involvements. Huerfano County 4-H was also close to Marvin's heart, spending many years as leader, fair board member and in 2009 founding the 4-H Buyers Club to encourage future livestock producers. Marvin was preceded in death by his loving wife, Francie; his parents, Arthur and Alma Davis; his brothers, Estel and Edgar Davis; and sisters, Donna Davis and Thelma Tucker Wynne. Marvin is survived by children, Gena Davis (Dr. Lyle) Kenner, Linton, N.D., Jill Davis Homerding, and J. Scott Davis of the family farm, C. Gaye Davis, Pueblo; four grandchildren, Katelin Renee Davis and Kelsey Michelle Davis, Denver, Hallie Ann Homerding, Walsenburg, Billy Scott Carruth, Pueblo; sisters, Leoma Owens, El Cajon, Calif., Rosella Orr, Walsenburg; and brother, Milton Davis, Tullahoma, Tenn.; sister-in-laws, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and a lifetime of friends also survive him.

A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, 2011, United Church, Main Street and Kansas Avenue, Walsenburg.

Pueblo county has a notable record in its contribution to the working personnel under the Red Cross both at home and abroad. Before the participation of our country in active fighting, there were residents of the Sunshine county at work wearing the badge of mercy. But in the last twenty months, forty-one women and three men have been accepted by the Red Cross for work at home and abroad. It must not be forgotten that to be fit for such work, candidates must pass a strict, even severe, examination and appraisement of qualifications, physical, mental and moral. The term moral meaning more than mere rectitude of action, and carrying all that subtle power of inspiring courage, and manifesting unflinching devotion under any circumstances… The location of these nurses and other workers is given from the last information at hand in the local office… Mrs. Henry, the secretary of Pueblo chapter, has given much time to obtaining the data of service by checking up the records of the Pueblo nurses both here and at the state headquarters in Denver… The records available show that 23 workers were sent over seas, and eighteen were assigned to this country. The three men workers were all in foreign service. The names follow: Elsie Dayton, died at emergency hospital, Spokane.

DeFusco, Leide W. (Capt.)
Captain Leide DeFusco - Pueblo Chieftain - September 1, 2012 - Law Enforcement Deaths - Air mission turns tragic - Sheriff's deputy, retired cop killed in crash - A Pueblo County Sheriff's deputy and a retired Pueblo police officer died Friday in a plane crash in the San Isabel National Forest. The duo had been surveilling the forest searching for illegal marijuana grows when their plane went down near St. Charles Peak, Sheriff Kirk Taylor said. “We're all pretty devastated,” a dejected Taylor told the media late Friday. Officials did not release the names of the victims, but The Chieftain has learned they are Sheriff's Capt. Leide DeFusco and John Barger, a retired police captain. DeFusco's Facebook page was flooded with condolences and well-wishes for his family. His biography on the sheriff's website said he was a 21-year law enforcement veteran with both the county and city. DeFusco was head of the patrol division, Colorado State University-Pueblo patrol and the narcotics unit. DeFusco was preparing to leave for the Federal Bureau of Investigation's National Academy. Barger retired from the police department in 2009 after a 32-year career. He retired as captain of investigations. A flying enthusiast, Barger was piloting the plane when it went down. Merle Manweiler is a fellow pilot and friend who knew Barger well. “John died doing the two things he loved most in life - being a cop and flying an airplane. That says it all,” Manweiler said. “The Pueblo airport won't be the same without him.” On Aug. 15, law enforcement raided two illegal marijuana plantations in the Wet Mountains. Barger and DeFusco were flying the mountain range searching for additional grows. Taylor said contact was lost with the airplane, a single-engine Piper Super Cruiser, about 9:40 a.m. At 7:11 p.m., rescue crews found the smoldering wreckage, about four or five miles below St. Charles Peak on national forest land in Custer County. Taylor said the plane wrecked in steep, rugged terrain and that as many as 60 search and rescuers from the sheriff's office, Custer and Fremont counties, the forest service and FBI were on hand. A Flight for Life helicopter was used to locate the wreck and transport people into the crash area. “I can tell you manpower was easy. With that much we could've moved the mountain,” Taylor said. The cause of the wreck was not known. Taylor said investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board were expected to arrive this morning, when recovery efforts resume. Pueblo Chieftain - September 2, 2012 - Aviation Deaths - 'Not many guys like those two' - Law enforcement mourns loss from plane crash - Pueblo's law enforcement community was in mourning and disbelief Saturday at the loss of two of their own in a plane crash. Kind, professional, dedicated, good-humored were words friends and colleagues used to describe Capts. Leide DeFusco and John Barger, who died when their plane went down Friday in the San Isabel National Forest. The men were surveilling forest in the Rye and San Isabel area for illegal marijuana grows. “It's going to leave such a void,” former Pueblo Police Chief Jim Billings said. “In the case of both men, they were just really dedicated to law enforcement. I knew them both to be very good friends. I had a lot respect for both of them, for being outstanding law enforcement professionals all around.” DeFusco, 43, was a captain with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office and the police department before that, a career that spanned 22 years. He is survived by a wife and four children. Barger, 63, retired from the police department in 2009 after 32 years. Both worked together at the police department and had served on the department's SWAT team, Barger as the unit's captain and DeFusco as an officer. Charlene Graham is a bureau chief with the sheriff's office and a former deputy chief with the police department. She worked with both men throughout her lengthy career. “I'm going to miss the heck out of them,” Graham said. “Both of them, they were tactical people. They were the run-and-play kind of officers. They always wanted to get in on the action. I would go into any tactical situation with them.” Graham said both men had warm spots for their families. ''One night I called Leide at home about something and I said 'Can you talk?' He says 'Well I'm brushing (his daughter) Amanda's hair. Can I call you in about five minutes?' I mean, here's this tactical guy brushing his little girl's hair. He was truly a family man.'' Barger was a prankster who had fun with his colleagues, Graham said, but he also was giving. On numerous occasions he donated free plane rides to be auctioned off for the Boys & Girls Club, an organization Graham works with. ''I cant' tell you how many free plane rides he gave me for Boys & Girls Club. He never took a penny for it. He said 'I enjoy flying and I'm happy to do it,' '' Graham said. Eric Bravo is a captain with the police department who worked with DeFusco and Barger. “There's not many guys like those two in law enforcement today. It's a hard thing for everyone to deal with,” he said. “Leide, he was just a heck of a nice guy. He'd pick up the phone in the middle of the night and do whatever you needed. John, he was a man's man. Back in the day, he was probably one of the toughest guys down (at the department). Both of them were just great guys, certainly going to be missed by everyone who knew them.” DeFusco was head of the sheriff's patrol division, Colorado State University-Pueblo patrol and the narcotics unit. In the latter, DeFusco was one of the key figures in the Aug. 15 raid on two illegal pot grows near San Isabel. The bust, which yielded 13,735 plants, is the largest in Pueblo County history and one of the biggest ever in the state. As follow up, DeFusco and Barger, a pilot, were searching for additional grows Friday in the Wet Mountains. “Actually, John was due in to my dad's shop (Saturday) to work on some parts for the plane he was building,” Bravo said. “He always referred to my dad as Mr. Bravo. That was the level of respect he had for his elders.” Juan Espinosa, a former editor and crime reporter for The Pueblo Chieftain, knew Barger professionally and personally. “I knew John as head of narcotics unit and head of investigations. He was always straightforward and helpful. He'd help you do your job, if it was something he could do,” Espinosa said. Barger took Espinosa flying once to capture aerial footage for the “Song of Pueblo Oratorio,” an entertainment production Espinosa is involved with in his retirement. Barger's name is listed in the production's credits. ''It was at Jim Billings' retirement party where I saw John, and we had both retired, and I told him about the 'Song of Pueblo' and he told me about his flying. I told him I'd love some pictures from the air and one day I got a call from John Barger and he says 'Let's go flying,' '' Espinosa recalled. “We flew over the same area John was flying in Friday. We flew over Pueblo, the Wet Mountains, the Sand Dunes, the San Luis Valley. It's just tragic. He even discussed his strategy if he encountered trouble in (the mountains). It's just bizarre. When I fly again, it won't be without thinking about John Barger.” Espinosa said he and Barger had been planning a flight to Wyoming so he could shoot photos of Indian artifacts. Flying and law enforcement aside, Barger enjoyed boxing. He was a gold glove boxer who grew up in Oklahoma and Ordway. “You wouldn't think he was a boxer by looking at him (Barger was a slender 6-foot-5), but he could box,” Bravo said. “He sparred (Denver's) Ron Lyle once and Lyle went on to fight Ali.” DeFusco's roots are in Pueblo law enforcement. His grandfather was a Pueblo cop from the 1940s through the 1960s, according to a police department yearbook. He has a brother and sister who are Pueblo police officers and his father-in-law, Gus Sandstrom, is a former Pueblo district attorney. Sandstrom posted this on his Facebook about De-Fusco and Barger: “Leide DeFusco was my friend, my son-in-law and a great father. He loved his role as a law enforcement officer. John Barger, too, was a career officer who served because it was his dedication to duty. Please keep them in your prayers along with their wives and children.” Billings recalled De-Fusco's personal approach and leadership as president of the police union. “One of the things that really impressed me was when he served as union president, he was extremely professional and he would come in and talk and we always resolved issues just by sitting down and talking,” Billings said. “He always had the best interest of the officers in mind in everything he did.” On Saturday DeFusco's name was added to the Officer Down Memorial website. Pueblo Chieftain - September 2, 2012 - Bodies recovered from mountainside - Law enforcement spent Saturday recovering two of their own from plane wreckage in the San Isabel National Forest. Pueblo County Sheriff's Capt. Leide DeFusco and retired Pueblo police Capt. John Barger died Friday when their plane, a single engine Piper Super Cruiser, went down in the Wet Mountains. The two had been searching for additional illegal marijuana plantations after two large grows were raided near San Isabel on Aug. 15. Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk Taylor said alpine teams, including coroners from Pueblo and Custer counties, were able to recover the bodies Saturday in steep, rugged terrain. “We got them out, we recovered our people and now their families, and families in law enforcement, can put them to rest,” Taylor said late Saturday. Numerous officers and family of the victims held a brief prayer service at the sheriff's command post once the bodies were brought down. Taylor said the wreckage remained on the mountain and could be removed in the coming days. The wreck is about a mile from the Cisneros Trailhead. According to radio scanner traffic, officials with the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration had also arrived and began conducting their investigation. Preliminary results as to what may have caused the crash were not available. The men lost radio contact about 9:40 a.m. Friday. The wreckage was later discovered at 7:11 p.m. about four or five miles below St. Charles Peak. Pueblo Chieftain - September 3, 2012 - Capt. Leide W. DeFusco. Arrangements pending.

DeGarbo, Jimmie
Jimmie DeGarbo - The Chronicle-News - February 8, 2010 - James Jacob De Garbo (Jimmie), 80, died on February 4, 2010 in Trinidad, Colorado after a long battle with lung disease. Jimmie was born on April 26, 1929 in Trinidad, Colorado to Jim and Jenny DiGarbo. He was the fifth of seven children. He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings; Jennie Dolstra, Minnie Sudar, and Nick and Dominic De Garbo. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Judy De Garbo of Trinidad, son Vince (Daniela) De Garbo of Castle Rock, daughters Jeanine De Garbo and Jennette (Joe) Bonato both of Trinidad, seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother Joe (Mary Lee) De Garbo of Hoehne, his sister Sylvia (John) Hill of Castle Rock, Colorado and numerous nephews and nieces. He is also survived by Orlando Baca, his lifelong friend and neighbor who provided much kindness and support. Jimmie was a descendant of Sicilian farmers and continued this role on his farm in Hoehne. He was a very humble man with a huge heart and a sense of humor that touched everyone he knew. Farming was his passion, but he also enjoyed many of the functions that come with country living. For example, in the fall when the weather cooled, it was time to make sausage and pepperoni from the livestock that had been raised on his farm. His home became a lively butcher shop with many friends and relatives pitching in to help. Of course this was also the time to pre-test that first glass of homemade wine or finish off last year's vintage. He was also a self taught musician and there were many times when his home was filled with friends singing and dancing while listening to him and Anthony Cappellucci play country music on their guitars. He also knew a few tunes on the piano and during Christmas his children, and eventually his grandchildren would gather around and sing Christmas carols. In his later years he could be found collecting and restoring old farm equipment, particularly John Deere tractors. In 2002 it became apparent that his health was not going to improve and a very difficult decision was made to sell the family farm and move to Trinidad. He had lived in Hoehne for 73 years and had never known another place. Although he began to appreciate the advantages of city living, his nostalgia for the farm was always apparent. There was never truer meaning to the old adage: "You can take the boy out of the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the boy". The pall bearers are Grandsons: Trevor Hodge, Fabian DeGarbo, Bradley Baca, Andrew DeGarbo, David Baca, and Martin Bonato. The funeral mass will be Monday, February 8, 2010 at 10 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church with Fr. Kieran Alaribe officiating. Burial will follow at the Trinidad Catholic Cemetery. The family has entrusted Mullare-Murphy Funeral Home with the arrangements.

DeHaan, Harold Henry
Harold Henry DeHaan – Pueblo Chieftain – June 22, 1917 – Died – De Haan, Harold H., age 23, of Fort Morgan, at a local hospital, June 21. Pueblo Chieftain – June 22, 1917 – National Guardsman Is Killed in Pueblo – Harold H. DeHaan, age 23, of Fort Morgan, a private in the National Guard Co. stationed in Pueblo on guard duty, died last night at a local hospital from a fractured skull sustained early yesterday morning when he was struck by a train, it is believed, while he was on guard duty. The wounded man was found at 5 o'clock yesterday morning and was unconscious. He was rushed to the hospital for an operation was performed in hopes that his life could be saved. But he died last night at 7:30 o'clock. There were no witnesses to the accident and there were rumors of foul play. But the doctors scouted this theory and Coroner Dr. Ray Taylor stated last night that he was certain that the young man had been struck by a train. This was also the opinion of Dr. Royal H. Finney, who made a postmortem examination. The father of the young man, John DeHaan, arrived last night from Fort Morgan and took charge of funeral arrangements. The body is being cared for by Davis and Vories and will be sent to Fort Morgan tonight. Pueblo Chieftain – June 23, 1917 – Military Funeral Given Guardsman Killed Here – Inquest To Be Held To Prove or Disprove Foul Play Theory – Henry Harold DeHaan, 23, private in the Colorado national guard, who lost his life early Wednesday morning while on duty in Pueblo, was accorded military honors yesterday afternoon. The casket, draped in the United States flag, was escorted thru the streets of Pueblo by a cordon of guardsmen from Company D, First Infantry to the Union depot. Taps were sounded as the casket was being placed on a train for Fort Morgan. While the cordon of guards and persons at the depot stood with heads uncovered Musician Lawrence Pinnes sounded taps. Rev. J. A. Haycroft conducted a brief service at the Davis & Vories chapel. Services will be held at Fort Morgan Sunday afternoon. Sergeant Ira D. Shelton, Sergeant Wade Hampton and Privates Frank S. Williams, John W. Wells, Thomas Wyatt and Iral Lewis were pallbearers. Mr. and Mrs. John DeHaan, parents of the guardsman, accompanied the body to Fort Morgan. A coroner's jury to determine whether or not DeHaan was the victim of foul play, was called yesterday afternoon by Coroner Ray Taylor. An inquest will be held at Davis & Vories Monday afternoon. Physicians and Coroner Taylor do not believe DeHaan was murdered. It is thought he lost his life when struck by a fast passenger train on the bridge he was guarding. Pueblo Chieftain - June 26, 1917 - Guardsman Killed by Assailant Says Jury - Harold De Haan, corporal in Company I, Colorado National Guard, came to his death while on duty in Pueblo from the effects of an assault by parties unknown, was the verdict of the coroner's jury at the inquest held before Dr. Ray Taylor, Coroner, at Davis & Vories Undertaking establishment yesterday afternoon. De Haan was found unconscious by one of his comrades, Daniel Richards, about 4 o'clock Thursday morning. He was taken to the Minnequa Hospital where he died that night after the surgeons had made every effort to save his life. The autopsy performed by Dr. Campbell proved that the skull had been fractured and that a hemorrhage of the brain had resulted. Also the left arm had been fractured at the elbow. In Dr. Campbell's opinion, the blow which caused the fracture of the skull was caused by some blunt instrument and delivered in a sharp quick manner. It was at first considered that De Haan had been struck by a passenger train. He was on guard duty at one of the railroad bridges near Pueblo and his condition was discovered by his comrade shortly after the train had passed the bridge. The two had been conversing shortly before the train went by and it was thought by Richards that the train had struck him. Upon a closer questioning of the witnesses among whom was Richards, Captain Johnston of Company I, the two car inspectors who inspected the train when it reached Trinidad, the engineer, and others, it was fully apparent to the jury that De Haan was not struck by the rain but by an assailant. Close questioning of Captain Johnston was unable to disclose any ill feeling between De Haan and any of the national guardsmen stationed here that might have resulted in the deed., and it was thought probable that the assailant was some alien who sought to "get" one of the American soldiers. Pueblo Chieftain - June 27, 1917 – Guardsman is Arrested Here on Serious Charge – Leo Shotwell, alias John Underwood, aged 22, a private in Company I, Colorado national guards, stationed here, was arrested yesterday afternoon by George O'Leary, Santa Fe special agent and is being held on a charge of forgery and jailbreaking in Bridgeport, Neb. To a part of the charge he plead guilty. He is being held in the Pueblo county jail for further investigation. There was some mention of Underwood's name at the inquest held Monday into the death of Harold De Haan, also member of the guard company. A remark Underwood or Shotwell, made several weeks previous to the slaying and his apparently bad record as now disclosed, have aroused some suspicion that he was connected with the slaying. All of the evidence is circumstantial and it was admitted last night by officials that it would be difficult to prove anything against him in this connection. An injured toe, which caused him to have an operation performed in a hospital at La Junta, led to Underwood's arrest shortly after noon yesterday. While Underwood was in the La Junta hospital he was visited by George O'Leary, special agent of the Santa Fe railroad. Yesterday morning while looking thru a publication giving descriptions and pictures of men wanted for crimes thruout the United States, O'Leary found a photograph of Underwood reproduced as wanted in Bridgeport, Neb., for forgery and later for breaking jail. O'Leary hurried to Pueblo, where he apprised army officials here of his find and the arrest of Underwood was made. Pueblo Chieftain - June 28, 1917 – Question Guardsman – Authorities Still Investigating Shotwell Regarding De Haan Case – Military authorities and police officers in Pueblo were still attempting yesterday to definitely connect Leo Shotwell, alias John Underwood, 22, private in the First Colorado national guard, with the murder here Thursday of Harold H. DeHaan, 23. No new evidence had been unearthed against the suspected man and indications last night were Shotwell will be turned over to officials from Bridgeport, Neb., when they arrive today or tomorrow. He will be returned to Nebraska to answer charges of jail breaking after he had been convicted of forgery. Captain Johnson, grilling Shotwell yesterday morning attempted to break down the man's alibi. Nothing that will warrant authorities holding him for a charge of murdering DeHaan has been unearthed they say. Pueblo Chieftain - June 29, 1917 - Prisoner is Taken Back to Nebraska - Officials Fail to Definitely Connect Shotwell with Killing of U. S. Guard - Leo Shotwell, alias John Underwood, aged 22, private in the First Colorado Infantry stationed here, was taken back to Bridgeport, Neb., yesterday to stand charges of jail breaking after he had been convicted of forgery. Expectation of military and police authorities of Pueblo that the mysterious murder of Harold H. DeHaan, aged 23, national guardsman, might be cleared up with the arrest of Underwood died out yesterday morning when the Nebraska officer arrived here and information which might lead to the placing of a charge of murder against the man under arrest had not been unearthed. Following his arrest Tuesday morning, police and military authorities conducted a careful investigation in order to determine if Underwood was connected with the murder. Suspicion was first directed toward the man Monday afternoon at the coroner's inquest when testimony was introduced showing Underwood had made threats against DeHaan. George O'Leary, special agent of the Santa Fe Railroad, who arrested Underwood Tuesday, was paid a reward of $50 for the capture by Nebraska authorities yesterday afternoon. Pueblo Chieftain – August 5, 1917 – City Briefs – Parents Bring Suit – John and Minne DeHaan, parents of Harold DeHaan, guardsman who was killed on a Colorado and Southern bridge south of Pueblo in June have brought suit of $10,000 damages in the district court at Denver. DeHaan was killed by a passing passenger train while he was standing guard on the bridge. It was thought at first he was killed “by a person or persons unknown.” Note: Harold Henry DeHaan was buried in Riverside Cemetery in Fort Morgan, Colorado.

When asked if she wanted to go, her eyes would light up and with a grand gesture of her arm she would reply “Yes, of course — we'll throw caution to the wind!” Our sincere thanks go out to all of the caregivers and nurses locally and in Arizona who cared for both Mary Ann and Diane.

Dickerhoof, Gene
Gene Dickerhoof - Trinidad Times Independent - July 13, 2012 - Marion Eugene (Gene) Dickerhoof died May 23, 2012, at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. He was born Jan. 14, 1943, in Burlingame, Kan., to Virginia and Clyde Dickerhoof. His brother, Daryl, was 2 at that time. Clyde was a farmer, and after two years of flooding, the family moved to Trinidad so that Clyde could work at the Baldy Canyon Coal Mine, which was run by his uncle. Times were tough, but fishing for trout, the family garden, and a yearly side of beef from Kansas relatives helped keep food on the table. Income was supplemented by money his mother earned teaching piano and from the sale of fishing flies his parents tied. Although Gene came from humble beginnings, his life was a happy one. Growing up, both he and his brother were involved in athletics and became Eagle Scouts. His parents were determined that their sons would have a good education. Gene was accepted to the Colorado School of Mines in Golden on a football scholarship; he worked in the school cafeteria. In January 1966, Gene graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in metallurgy. He had participated in the U.S. Army ROTC, and upon graduation drove to Fort Benning, Ga., for airborne training. Before reporting to the Corps of Engineers in Fort Belvoir, Va., Gene stopped in New York City to visit Noreen Castner, who was studying voice at the Manhattan School of Music. They had known one another in school and the Methodist church as they were growing up. Gene and Noreen dated for a year, and he proposed before leaving for Pleiku, Vietnam, in February 1967. Gene and Noreen were married Aug. 2, 1968, in Trinidad, and immediately left on a three-month honeymoon to Europe. They had purchased a Triumph TR 250 for pick-up in England, and traveled in 13 countries. That was the beginning of a lifetime of travel. They returned to NYC with only $50 in their pockets, and immediately found jobs to sustain them until Noreen began rehearsals for a four-month singing tour and Gene went to La Crosse, Wis., for a six-month course with the Trane Company. In July 1969, Noreen and Gene drove to San Francisco to begin work with Trane. On July 1, 1970, they moved into an English Tudor house they had purchased in Oakland. Darren was born early the following morning. Gene began fixing up the house and added a large apartment on the lower level. He loved the construction, and the income from the rental paid the mortgage. It was then that he decided he wanted to be a builder, so he sold their home and moved the family into a tiny house on a double lot a few blocks away. The property was zoned for apartments, and Gene designed two four-plexes and purchased a Bobcat tractor so that he could do the excavation for the garages. Matthew arrived on Aug. 4, 1972. Gene became licensed as a general contractor, quit his job, and attended Merritt College three nights a week to take courses in real estate. The following years were happy ones as the family literally lived on the job site. Gene was fascinated with the town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, and in 1977 he purchased a house in need of remodeling on a double lot just five blocks from the ocean. Kimberly joined the family on Jan. 30, 1979. Each year Gene would purchase a home to remodel, and every summer the family would travel. Gene and Noreen were active in the Church of the Wayfarer. They also had a den of eight Cub Scouts, and Gene was the Pack Master for three years. They loved attending school and athletic events in which the kids were involved. When Darren started the Construction Engineering Management Program at Oregon State University in 1988, Gene began purchasing investment properties in need of repair. Then Matt enrolled at OSU in 1991. Gene was ready for a change, and he and Noreen moved to Corvallis. Although Gene intended to retire, he quickly realized that the creativity of designing and building with his sons was what he loved. During his time working with them, they remodeled and built approximately 1 million square feet of retail space. Though he worked all over Oregon and neighboring states, some of his more notable projects in Corvallis included the conversion of the original CH2M Hill headquarters into University Plaza, and the remodel of the old Rite Aid into Market of Choice. He was proud that Dickerhoof Properties won the Corvallis-Benton Chamber Coalition Business of the Year Award in 2010. After Kim's graduation from the University of Maryland, she eventually moved to Portland. Gene was so happy that all three children were close enough that the family could often gather together. On May 10, Gene had major surgery to remove a tumor in his bladder. He spent 11 days in the Oregon Health Science University hospital, and was recovering nicely. He was at Kim's home in Portland when a blood clot moved to his lungs. After rushing him back to OHSU, he passed away on May 23. The family and the doctors were stunned and remain in shock. Gene is survived by Noreen, his wife of 43 years; son and daughter-in-law, Darren and Kristen Dickerhoof of Corvallis; son, Matthew Dickerhoof of Bend; daughter and son-in-law, Kimberly and Shawn McEuen of Portland; grandsons Maxwell and Maguire Dickerhoof of Corvallis; step-granddaughter, Tatum McEuen of Portland; and brother, Daryl Dickerhoof of Mount Vernon, Washington. A celebration of life for Gene was held at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 3, in his yard. The Rev. Charles Anker of Carmel offered a eulogy and prayer. Private family burial will take place in Golden Cemetery Golden, CO Friday June 8, 2012. Officiated by Rev. Christopher Mohr. Gene loved children, and was a great teacher to the young and those eager to learn. The family suggests those who wish donate in his memory to CASA — Voices for Children or the Old Mill Center for Children and Families.

Dickerhoof, Virginia
Virginia Dickerhoof - Trinidad Times Independent - October 19, 2007 - Virginia Dickerhoof, age 90 - Virginia was born to Ed and Nettie Wilson in Council Grove, Kansas on December 6, 1917. She, her older sister, and two older brothers were raised on a farm. Living in a rural farming area she rode a horse to school. During her high school years Virginia lived in town and worked at a local drug store. In May of 1937 she graduated from Eskridge High School. After graduation, she was employed in the Harveyville Drug Store. It was there she met her husband. On February 6, 1939, Virginia married Clyde Dickerhoof of Burlingame, Kansas. After the wedding they resided on his mother's farm just south of Burlingame. Their sons Daryl and M. Eugene (Gene) were born there. In 1946, after their land was flooded for three years in a row, the family moved to Trinidad, Colorado where her husband worked in the coal mine and later for the State Highway. Virginia taught piano lessons for over 50 years and loved the interaction with her students. Any spare moments were spent tying fishing flies and the income from their sales and her piano lessons helped sustain the family through many mine strikes and lean years. Virginia was active in the Trinidad Methodist Church serving on the Pastor's Parish Relations Board, as substitute organist, and as superintendent of the Primary Department for 15 years. She joined Eastern Star in 1957 and was organist for many years. She also served as installation musician for DeMolay and Rainbow for Girls. Virginia and Clyde enjoyed traveling to Europe, the Caribbean, and most of the United States including Alaska. Numerous car trips were taken to visit their son's families. Family was all important to Virginia and she hand made quilts for each of her eight grandchildren. She had a way of making each one of them feel important by cooking them various shaped pancakes and making them lunches so that they could go fishing with their grandpa. Even as the grandchildren got older, they remained close to her so she could be part of her 7 great-grandchildren's lives. After 56 years of marriage her husband died and Virginia decided to move to Corvallis, Oregon to be near Gene and his family. She lived in her own apartment at Samaritan Village for the past nine years. While there, she made many wonderful and close friends. Watching football was a lifetime joy and she was delighted when the Oregon State Beavers beat Cal last weekend. Over time Virginia's heart weakened which resulted in her death on October 14th. Although Virginia came from humble beginnings, her demeanor was one of grace and dignity. She judged no one and never knew a stranger. She was a great mom, mother-in-law, grandmother and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, sister and four brothers.

She is also survived by seven great-grandchildren, 10 great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. During her early years, like most rural women of the time, she spent much of her day with farming activities and canning the produce from her garden. She had a large flock of Leghorns and she enjoyed making a little “egg money.” She had a large extended family and she loved entertaining and visiting with them. She was proud to be called “Granny,” “Granny Ruby,” or “Aunt Ruby” by all of the children. She was especially pleased when some or all came for dinner and it was no problem to throw another spud into the pot. Her cooking was exceptional and everyone waited with anticipation for the buns she would prepare for Thanksgiving dinner. Her pies and chocolate cakes were delicious and she enjoyed having her granddaughter's with her while she taught them to bake. She loved to be outdoors and enjoyed fishing, horseshoes, playing softball with kids and taking walks to the river bottom. She was also at ease with a sewing machine and made many dresses and western shirts for the family. Besides her domestic duties, she was also a cook for many years at the Hoehne School. If you went through her line and said you didn't like it, she would reply, “How do you know you don't like it if you don't try it!” After her retirement, she and Harry moved to a home in Hoehne and enjoyed visits with friends and relatives, playing cards with her brothers, gardening, fishing, and being an active part in the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was also an avid reader and particularly enjoyed westerns and a good romance novel. In 2002, she moved to the Trinidad Nursing Home and stayed active while also making new friends. Even as her memory started to fail, she brought a ray of sunshine to everyone she met. Her family has many wonderful memories of this exceptionally fine lady and she will be deeply missed. Pallbearers will be Brad Baca, David Baca, Andrew DeGarbo, Fabian DeGarbo, Martin Bonato, John McDonald and Mike Baudino. Visitation was June 20 at the Mullare-Murphy Funeral Home.

Mrs. Murphy was the divorced wife of Albert E. Dilley, who alleged that on the night of May 19, Frank Murphy struck him over the head with a revolver, inflicting a wound which afterwards resulted in erysipelas. Dilley died May 25 and Murphy was placed under arrest. A coroner's inquest was held and Murphy was released. The autopsy showed that Dilley had died of septicemia, super induced by erysipelas and no fracture of the skull was found. Shortly before his death, Dilley stated that Murphy struck him. He told the same story to his mother and another man, the latter failing to be present at the inquest. Dilley had been divorced from his wife for 2 years, but had been staying at her rooming house, the Greenlight, on Union Avenue. Mrs. Dilley married Murphy May 21, before Dilley had died. They live together until August 28, when Mrs. Murphy claims he proved untrue to her. Both were on the witness stand yesterday during a hearing in the County Court for temporary alimony. Their stories of their domestic troubles were at variance, especially on financial matters. The court finally allowed Mrs. Murphy $10 per month temporary alimony and $50 for attorney's fees and the cost of the action.

He was the third of four children; Bill, Ruth and Charline were his siblings. He passed away at home on the family ranch surrounded by his wife Joan and family on Aug. 4, 2011. As a child growing up his older sister Ruth had trouble pronouncing his middle name and called her little brother “Tanky.” The name stuck and John would always be known to family and friends as Tanky. Tanky was raised in Trinchera where he attended grade school. Even from his early days he was actively involved with the family ranch. While in high school he began dating Joan Horner from Branson. Tanky was active in basketball, baseball and 4-H and to this day holds the title of one of the highest scoring male athletes at Branson High School. Following high school Tanky joined the Navy to serve during World War II on the U.S.S. Metcalf, a Destroyer in the Pacific Theater. Tanky and Joan both attended Colorado State University for a short while and then Trinidad Junior College where they graduated. Tanky was a top student as well as a member of the basketball team, football team and played on the first men's baseball team. He was a member of the college choir as a tenor and a soloist, and was Phi Theta Kappa. As a baseball player in college, Tanky played shortstop and second base and was a switch hitter. Following graduation he was recruited to play professional baseball with the Chicago Cubs organization in 1948. He decided he would prefer to stay, build and work the ranch so he declined the offer. Tanky and Joan were married Nov. 27, 1948, in Trinchera at St. Joseph's Catholic Church. Tanky ranched with his dad and brother Bill developing their Hereford Cattle line. Tanky and Joan have seven children. John, Ben, Joann, Kathleen, Shari Louise, Jim and Dianna. Their children's spouses are Patricia, Willetta, Chris, Dennis, Karen and Mark. They have 17 grandchildren: Jennifer, Dan, Brad, Kendra, Erin, Noel, Samantha, Ryan, Nathan, Damon, Kyle, Vernon, Ben, Jake, Cassidy, Zack and Kalli. Several of them are married and their spouses are: Becky, Jodi, Matt, Trent, Michele, Stephanie and Damion. They have 9 great grandchildren: Josh, Brody, Owen, Brock, Liam, Jimmy, Will, Collin and Elise. Tanky was honored as a 60-year alum at the TSJC 2008 graduation ceremony. When asked about his accomplishments, he humbly stated that the most important part of his life has been his family. Both Tanky and Joan have truly poured their entire lives into their family, their extended family and their community and are much loved by many. A friend recently shared with the family they felt that Tanky had a part in raising nearly all of the youth in the Branson community through sports, 4-H and church. Tanky and Joan celebrated their 62nd anniversary in November 2010. They have driven and flown thousands of miles in support and celebration of the sports events, school events, graduations, weddings, county fairs and 4-H events of their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Tanky was an active member and president of the Colorado Hereford Association, was in the Colorado Cattleman's Association and was the President of the Southern Colorado Cattlemen's Association. He was honored as the Outstanding School Board Member for his service on the Branson School Board for many years. He was a 4-H leader for 35 years, was on the County Fair Board for many years including serving as President. He also served on the Round Up Board. He bowled for a number of years on the Hudson Service Team in the National League in Trinidad. Both Tanky and Joan have been officers on the board of the Branson-Trinchera Reunion. They were also selected to be the Grand Marshall and Silver Queen for the Trinidad Round Up in 2008 where they led the parade and were honored at the rodeo. They were also selected and honored as the Las Animas County 4-H Couple of the Year. According to family, “Huge family dinners around the table filled with laughter and food are some of the wonderful colorful memories for many of us. The big Christmas family times included singing around the piano and competitive ping pong games. Memories of being active in church, school and athletics, 4-H projects of all kinds, county fairs, the National Western Stock Show, the state fair, exhibit days, field days and family Easter egg hunts are all vivid memories. Friends have described Tanky as a “big man” in the community who left a lot of great people in his wake. He was a man of integrity, honesty, authenticity and always enjoyed life. Joan says that the main joy of his life was being with and watching his family. Filling Tanky's big shoes will not be possible but following in the path that he as made will be the challenge that sons Jim and John and grandsons Dan and Ben will have as they continue to operate the ranch which has been in the family since 1870. We have all been very blessed to know and love Tanky Doherty. The family of Tanky Doherty wishes to thank everyone for their prayers, support and encouragement. Acknowledgements may be sent to P.O.

Dohlman, Frank
Frank Dohlman - Pueblo Indicator - August 9, 1913 - Murder and Suicide - Frank Dohlman, an ex-policeman, shot and killed Constable N. F. Patterson in the Mint saloon at 186 North Union avenue Wednesday last at 5 o'clock p.m., and then seeming to realize the enormity of his crime he shot himself twice in the head and died within two hours. Patterson was shot through the heart and was killed instantly. The trouble is said to have been caused by Patterson serving an ouster notice on Dohlman to vacate the house in which he was living, although at the time Dohlman did not seriously object. He brooded over the affair and went to drinking. As a result he became a murderer and killed his victim in a treacherous and cowardly manner. The deed was a parallel to Policeman Lysander L. Johnson's act who shot and killed Maud Murray in a restaurant in the same locality last spring and then blew his own head off. Johnson was said to have been somewhat off balance and Dohlman was mentally weak from over-indulgence in liquor.

Dolce, Roy
Roy Dolce - Trinidad Times Independent - December 6, 2007 - Roy Dolce, Golf Whiz, dies at 92 - Roy Dolce, originally from Trinidad, Colorado, died in Colorado Springs on December 4. Roy's golf career began in Trinidad at age 11 when the men for whom he was caddying let him fill in for an absent player. To their amazement Roy scored 37, even par for the 9-hole Trinidad golf course. The dozens of newspaper headlines that followed over the next 80 years and his nomination to the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame attest to Roy's accomplishments at the sport that became a focal point of his life till he could no longer drive himself to the golf course to play the game. Golf was only one of Roy's accomplishments. He succeeded at everything he did from sports to heroism during WWII. As the lead bombardier in missions over Romania, his plane was one of 12 that returned from a month's worth of bombing missions that started with 65 planes. In the recovery room, after cancer surgery about 5 years ago, Roy cried so hard that the surgeon felt compelled to hold him till he came to and revealed he was crying for all the young men he watched die during his three years in the war, a war that left him a pacifist. Roy never talked about the dozen commendations/medals he was awarded for his heroism during the war. He only did what a man had to do. There was almost nothing Roy Dolce didn't do and do very well. As a toddler, Roy helped his father and grandfather make and stack the adobe blocks that comprise the first story of a house that sits on what is now Santa Fe Trail in Trinidad. After retiring from his job in Hammond, Indiana in the 1970's. Roy returned to Trinidad and with his own hands built the second story onto the same house. He made his own furniture as well as the rugs that adorned the floors of his home. He moved to Colorado Springs in the early 1980's to better care for his ailing wife who needed dialysis. It was there that he met his companion of the past 25 years, Ms. Juline Wheeler. The two offered support to each other as they each cared for their dying spouses at the dialysis center. Their spouses died within a month of each other and while supporting each other during their grieving they formed a friendship that lasted till the end. Ms. Wheeler, never left Roy's side during his last illness. An affable man good natured man, Roy was always there for anyone who asked for his help whether it was to build a piece of furniture for his brother's widow or to give his niece away at her wedding. Roy was not only a devoted husband and companion but he was also a devoted father doing everything possible for his only son Ronald Dolce. Roy Dolce will be remembered by the many whose lives he touched as one of the greatest human beings to walk the face of this earth. Roy is survived by his son Ronald of Pueblo and his sister Dorothy Riddle of Florence, Colorado. Roy will be remembered in two services: one at 10 AM this Saturday, December 8 at the Medallion Retirement Community where he lived the last years of his life. The Medallion is located at 1719 E.

Doll, William (Monsignor)
Monsignor William “Pedro” Doll - Pueblo Chieftain - May 21, 2011 - Longtime Pueblo priest William Doll dies in Minnesota - Monsignor William Doll, a longtime parish priest in the Diocese of Pueblo, died May 8 in his native Perham, Minn. He was 86. Doll was ordained on June 3, 1950, at the Pontifical College of Josephinum in Worthington, Ohio, and immediately was appointed as vicar at Sacred Heart Parish in Alamosa — the first of many assignments during his 61-year career in the sprawling diocese. The Rev. Maurice Gallagher, a longtime priest who started Los Pobres in Avondale, was Doll's seminary classmate and lifelong friend." He was a very quiet, purposeful fellow and he was also very interested in service," said the 90-year-old Gallagher. "Every place he was assigned — and he was in lots of places — he was an EMT and worked with fire and police departments. He was thoughtful and helpful and generous — those were qualities he had in pretty good abundance." Gallagher said Doll was soft-spoken and never "pushy," and always kept his word. "He was a fellow who, if he told you something would happen, you knew it would happen," Gallagher said. "A lot of people make promises with good intentions, but don't keep them. My friend never did that. He did what he promised he would do." Gallagher said Doll also was a passionate reader and dedicated historian who amassed a huge collection of books — much of it related to diocesan history — that he had trouble giving away after he retired. The diocese and the Pueblo City-County Library District turned down the collection, but the Pueblo Historical Society gladly accepted it. Gallagher said a spokesman for the group said "there was a treasure in every box" and is working hard to preserve it and to ensure its availability to those who are interested in it. Sister Nancy Crafton, director of Los Pobres, said the collection includes priests' journals from missionary pioneer churches and other one-of-a-kind items rich with detail and nuance not available in official historical accounts. Doll retired in 2008 and was named a monsignor the following year, not long before he returned to Minnesota to be near his family. His long career here took him to many churches and communities. After serving three years in Alamosa, Doll took his first Pueblo assignment, as vicar at Pueblo's Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in 1953. He was assigned in 1956 as administrator of St. Anthony Parish and while serving there also was the assistant chaplain at the former Colorado State Hospital (now Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo). Doll was appointed in 1960 as pastor of St. Francis de Sales in Lamar, where he also served as chaplain for the Newman Club at Lamar Junior College until returning to Sacred Heart as pastor. In 1977, Doll was granted a three-month leave of absence to study theology at the North American College in Rome.

Donley, Libbie Elizabeth R.
Libbie (Elizabeth R.) Donley - Pueblo Chieftain - April 7, 2010 - Libbie (Elizabeth R.) Donley passed away to join God and the love of her life, Frosty (Forrest R. Donley), on the morning of April 3, 2010.

She attended Western College for Women for two years, transferred to Simmons College in Boston and graduated with a major in home economics (emphasis in clothing construction) from Simmons in June of 1940. She later earned a master's from Ohio State University, while teaching high school home ec. She met the father of her children, John Bogdanovich, while at Western. They married after her graduation and eventually changed the family name to Ogdan. She met and married Frosty in 1974, after a whirlwind courtship (unanimously approved of by all four “kids”). Libbie loved to dance, and both husbands were great ballroom partners. She began folk-dancing in the '60s and continued until she and Frosty came to Pueblo West after retirement (and couldn't find a club here!). She also loved to sing, and was a member of the choir at the Ecumenical Church for many years. Libbie will be missed and remembered. She touched many with her grace and generosity, love and faith. May she rest in peace in the arms of her loves. A memorial service will be held at 6:30 p.m. today, April 7, at the church.

Donley, Theodore E.
Theodore E. "Ted" Donley - Pueblo Chieftain - December 8, 1993 - Ted Donley of Dairy Fame Dies at 90 - Donley's idea of taking special care of his animals included shipping a prize bull to Pueblo in the baggage car of a passenger train. Another favorite cow was Regal Sarah Barito, another production winner. In the 1930s, Ted Donley had a favorite cow named Sally. He named her for Sally Rand, the famous fan dancer. In 1933, Sally produced the first of many of Donley's milch cow state production records. "He had a knack for cows. He could get more out of them, because he took better care of them, fed them best," recalled his son, Ted Donley Jr. on Tuesday. Donley, longtime owner of Hyde Park Dairy, died Sunday at age 90. A memorial service will be held at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at Christ Congregational Church. But the name Donley is forever a part of Pueblo dairy lore. Donley's idea of taking special care of his animals included shipping a prize bull to Pueblo in the baggage car of a passenger train. Another favorite cow was Regal Sarah Barito, another production winner. "I bought him from a man in Denver at an auction," Ted Jr. said. The owners hadn't been able to breed her so, "I just paid the beef price for her, for hamburger." But it turned out that Regal was indeed with calf and "produced a hundred pounds a day of milk for a long time after that." It was a long way from Ireland to Pueblo County for the family. Donley was the grandson of Thomas Arion O'Donnelly who came to New York from Ireland with his parents when he was a little boy. The parents promptly contracted scarlet fever and died, leaving Thomas to grow up in a Catholic orphanage where a priest shortened his name to Thomas Donley. After serving in the Spanish American War, he claimed his "bounty land" in Iowa and a bride, Mary Elizabeth Todd, a niece of President Lincoln's wife, Ted Jr. said. The couple had 11 children. And in the Colorado gold rush, four boys came to Leadville to dig for their fortune. They didn't find it, but the youngest, Todd, inadvertently began what would become the family heritage. The brothers owned a cow that gave more milk than they needed, so Todd began selling milk to the other miners. The brothers drifted away from Leadville: Joe to raise cattle at Nathrop, Todd to Burnt Mill Road, Charlie to Beulah and Edward to Pueblo. Edward went into the cattle business, but his sons became Pueblo's dairy farmers par excellence. Floyd founded Hillside Dairy in 1919 and Ted began Hyde Park Dairy five years later with a 12-head herd of Holsteins. "It was 1930 before I hired outside help," he told The Chieftain in 1975 after 50 years in the business. "The route was delivered seven days a week, too. I had about 30 head of milkers then." In those days cows were milked by hand, a practice that continued to 1972 when the herd had grown to 150 cows and took seven men to milk. In 1972 he opened a new, push-button dairy barn on 160 acres west of the former honor farm site near the Pueblo Dam and three years later was running 300 milkers with 100 heifers coming up. He always told his son, "I can take a good Holstein in a tent and make a living." And during the Great Depression they always "had plenty to eat. We sold butter, fed skim milk to the calves and hogs and chickens. And we'd go to the store and trade." In 1985, a year after his son, Jack, died, Donley retired. It got to the point that the major national dairies were driving local companies out of business. "It got to the point you couldn't get local milk into a grocery," said Ted Jr. who operated a wholesale dairy at Beulah until 1991. Still, the family left its mark on Pueblo. Donley Park in Hyde Park is named for them. And Ted Jr. still thinks there is truth in his father's adage: "If you take care of a cow, she'll take care of you." Pueblo Chieftain - December 13, 2003 - Theodore E. "Ted" Donley, born Aug. 11, 1925, in Pueblo, to Ted and Blanche Donley, who preceded him in death along with his son, Michael G. Donley; and brother, Jack Donley. Survived by his wife, Sally; children, Janett (Myron) Spanier of Aurora, Jere Beth Chaddick of Canon City, Vanessa (Jeff) Tranel of Pueblo; sister, Mary Jo Cavender of Pueblo; brother, Jim (Nadine) Donley of Las Vegas; sister-in-law, Joan Donley; grandchildren, Justin Donley, Todd Spanier, Alexandria and Samantha Jo Gaunt, Jason and Jordan Tranel; and many nieces and nephews. Ted graduated from Centennial High School in 1942. He served proudly in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific on board the original USS Pueblo. Ted was a descendent of early Colorado Pioneers who settled in Pueblo County in the late 1800s. Ted was a third-generation dairy farmer and owned his own dairy until retiring in 1992. He was past president of the Colorado Holstein Association, past president of the Pueblo County Farm Bureau and was active in 4-H his entire life. Funeral service, 10 a.m. Monday, Imperial Funeral Home Chapel. Interment, Beulah Cemetery, Beulah, Colo., with military honors by the Pueblo Veterans Ritual Team.

Dooley, Iza
Iza Dooley - Rocky Mountain News - August 12, 1895 - Iza Dooley's Life - Because James Doyle Refused to Bring Her to Denver She Shot at Him and Suicided - Pueblo, Colo., Aug. 11 - Iza Dooley lies at the morgue with a gaping bullet hole in her chest, and her lover, James E. Doyle, is at the county jail with a bullet buried in the fleshy part of his left shoulder, all the result of a trifling disagreement, he says, this afternoon at a lodging house on Santa Fe avenue, where they were living together. Both wounds, he maintains, were inflicted by her when he told her that he could not take her with him to Denver, where he said he intended going in a few days, because he had not the money, but would send for her. Last June, after a disagreement with her sister, Mrs. May Clayton, Iza Dooley tried to kill herself with morphine. Doyle says she had previously said she would do the same thing again if he left her. His story is that he had been drinking some Saturday night and did not get home until early yesterday morning. He went out for a time after breakfast, came back, and slept. When he awoke the subject of his going to Denver came up again. Suddenly he heard a pistol shot, and then when he started to run out of the room, another. He did not know at once that he was shot, but saw the blood and ran through the street, wearing only his undershirt, to a drug store. Here it was found that a bullet had entered his left shoulder from behind and had lodged in the flesh, making a painful but not serious wound. George Washington, the Negro janitor of the building, heard the shots, and running into Iza Dooley's room, after meeting Doyle on the stairs, found her lying on the floor on her back, breathing her last. The revolver lay on the floor near her right hand. Her dress was burning, and the blood was pouring from the wound. Doyle was put under arrest. His story is straightforward, and the circumstances of the case seem to verify it. He is a barber by trade, and lived for twelve years in Denver. He came here from Florence last February, and has been constantly working. Iza Dooley came here a year ago from Nebraska and has figured somewhat in police circles, having served a term in the county jail for slashing to pieces the inside of a hack.

Doolittle, J. K.
J. K. Doolittle – Rocky Mountain News – May 5, 1883 – Mr. Doolittle's Death – A Former Resident of Denver Dies in New York State – It was but a few days ago The News chronicled the death of Mrs. J. K. Doolittle at Lodi, N. Y., and little expected so soon would come the sad intelligence of the death of her husband. Yesterday morning, Mr. Mitchell Benedict, a brother-in-law, received a telegram stating that Mr. Doolittle had died the day before. But no further particulars have been ascertained. Mr. Doolittle came to Colorado in '66 and soon after embarked in mercantile pursuits and reached a prominent position, socially and otherwise. Among his associates were the best and most prominent in the country. Suffering in health, he disposed of his business in this city two years ago, and moved to Pueblo, where he remained until last January, when he again sold out, and, stopping in Denver a few days to take a last farewell of the many old associates, returned to the old home of Mrs. Doolittle, in Lodi, N. Y. He had been hopelessly ill for eight or ten months, as also had Mrs. Doolittle, previous to her death, and it was not expected he would survive long, and yet, not expected to follow her so soon. But the unrelenting hand of disease had fastened upon him securely and consumption has added another victim to its list. He was about 45 years of age, and had lived a life in which there was no guile. In 1875 the only child, a son, died. Thus crushed out of the beautiful world one by one, the family are united on the shore of the vast unknown. The funeral of Mr. Doolittle will take place at Lodi to-day, and many friends who linger on the threshold of time, will pause and drop a tear for the loved departed.

Doran, Wilbur Lee
Wilbur Lee Doran - Pueblo Chieftain - July 19, 2011 - Wilbur Lee Doran, born July 31, 1923, in Canon City, Colo., died April 28, 2011, at age 87, in Concord, Mass., following heart surgery. A lifelong resident of Colorado, Wilbur spent his youth in Cripple Creek and his adult life in Pueblo, where he met his wife, Aline McCain, while attending junior college. At the onset of WWII, Wilbur enlisted in the Army. A veteran of the Battle of the Bulge, and present at the crossing of the Rhine over the bridge at Remagen, Wilbur was among the generation to whom we owe so much, having lived the moments that most of us only know from history books or movies. Aline waited at home for four years, and they were married on March 10, 1946, within weeks of Wilbur's safe return. In Wilbur's words, "On our first date, I took her hand and I never let go." They were still holding hands on their 65th wedding anniversary shortly before his passing. After their marriage, Wilbur moved with his young bride to South Dakota to help a war buddy in the grocery business. Finding South Dakota too cold for their liking, they returned after a year to Pueblo, where Wilbur built with his own hands the house they would spend their lives in. Wilbur worked as a contractor and carpenter for many years, then joined the Colorado state highway department as a bridge inspector responsible for all the structures in Southeastern Colorado. By the time of his retirement, he had earned not only the highest rating for performance, but a group of treasured friends with whom he remained in contact up to his last days. The mountains of Colorado were a part of Wilbur. He was an avid fisherman and lover of the outdoors. He never tired of time spent among the Rockies, a passion he passed on to all his family. Wilbur also loved people. He was most content with family nearby, and with his sunny, outgoing personality, he would befriend nearly everyone he met. His family and many, many friends will deeply miss him. Wilbur is survived by his wife, D. Aline (McCain) Doran; children, Bruce Doran and his wife, Anne Doran, Joyce Doran and her partner, Verle Wright, and Brian Doran and his partner, Mary Anne Cleary; and by his grandchildren, Nathan Walent and his wife, Kervi Walent, Crystal Walent, Natalie Doran and Ross Doran; by his great-grandchildren, Ciani Walent and Aliyana Walent; by his nephew, George Miller and his wife, Theresa Miller; and niece, Elaine (Miller) Goodwin and her husband, Gary Goodwin; and by his sister-in-law, Maxine McCain. Predeceased by his sister, Evelyn Lucille (Doran) Miller and her husband, John Jeter Miller, also of Pueblo. The family extends an invitation to all who knew Wilbur to join us for a celebration of his life to be held at the Pueblo Nature Center Pavilion, 5200 Nature Center Road, Pueblo, CO 81008, beginning at 11 a.m. on Wilbur's 88th birthday, Sunday, July 31, 2011. Come share stories and be with friends and family whose lives have been touched by Wilbur's time on this Earth. Please, no flowers or donations, just your company and memories. Informal attire, RSVP requested but not required.

Dorcy, Roger
Roger Dorcy - Colorado Springs Gazette - July 25, 2005 - Pueblo Bishop Dies in Crash - Longtime Priest Just Back From Trip - The Rev. Roger Dorcy of Pueblo celebrated his 25th anniversary as a Catholic priest by taking an Alaskan cruise. He was killed in a car crash the day he came back. Dorcy was driving to the Colorado Springs Airport on Saturday afternoon to pick up Bishop Arthur Tafoya, who arrived on a later flight after the same cruise. Dorcy's car drifted off Interstate 25 about 18 miles south of Colorado Springs, returned to the road, spun around and rolled, the Colorado State Patrol said. Dorcy died at the scene about 1:20 p.m. “It was tragic the way he died,” Tafoya said. “He is going to be missed. He was well-loved and respected.” Dorcy, 59, was rector of Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Pueblo since 2003 and before that was at Our Lady of the Meadows Church for 12 years. Dorcy was ordained in Pueblo 25 years ago. Tafoya marks his 25th anniversary as bishop later this year. Their cruise was sponsored by St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo. “They invited us on the tour to honor us for our contributions,” Tafoya said. The trip was a highlight for Dorcy, who has been battling cancer since last September with radiation and chemotherapy treatments. “It was a very relaxing trip,” Tafoya said. “We really enjoyed looking at the glaciers, seeing the beauty of the state of Alaska.” Dorcy served on boards at St. Mary-Corwin and Sangre de Christo Hospice & Palliative Care. “I can't tell you if he had any particular hobbies. I don't know if he had time for hobbies,” said Dr. Joel Ohlsen, hospice board chairman. “He was a true leader,” Ohlsen said. “He was an extremely warm, friendly, approachable human being. “He loved to debate — discuss — both social issues and political issues.” Dorcy was born on the Fourth of July in 1946 in Omaha, Neb. He graduated from St. Meinrad School of Theology in Indiana. Barbara Duff, director of business and finance for the Diocese of Pueblo, said Dorcy was supposed to resume cancer treatments this week. She said his stamina seemed to pick up a bit before the cruise. “He was strong, his voice was strong, his hair was a little thinner,” she said. “He was very loyal to his parish community. He was known for his civic duty as well. He was pretty well known throughout the whole city of Pueblo.” Correction: The headline had the incorrect title. The Rev. Roger Dorcy was a priest. Correction ran 7/26/2005.

He graduated from high school, then attended training in Pueblo to become a barber. Paul proudly entered the U.S. Army in 1942, during World War II. He served his country three years, with 29 months overseas in African and Italian campaigns. After discharge from the service, Paul returned to Aguilar where he opened his own barber shop and later was additionally employed at the Trinidad State Junior College's maintenance department. He retired from maintenance after 20 years, but Paul's Barber Shop remained open until 2005, when Paul turned 83. The shop was a fun and lively gathering place for Paul's friends and family. They would reminisce and tell stories about the "old days," local history, and discuss the latest happenings in town. Paul was grateful for all of his loyal customers who often traveled from out of town for a haircut. The shop and adjacent pool hall turned work shop were places Paul displayed his collections of antiques, old photographs, and coal mining mementos. Paul was a skilled and artistic carpenter and when the "shop was slow," he enjoyed doing woodworking projects next door. He was honored when local people would bring in items for repair. In 1950, Paul married Mildred (Tudy) Curgus, and both were devoted to each other, to God, and to their three children, Rob, Paula and Jimmy. Paul stressed his belief that priorities in life were family, health and loved ones. He was a kind, generous and gentle man, and will be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor and dedication to his community. He was a longtime member of the SNPJ Lodge, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and a dedicated member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church. He was active in preparing for the Aguilar Centennial Celebration and the project to place permanent signs in Aguilar to identify the Highway of Legends route. Paul was proud of his Slavic heritage and with his sister and brothers carried on traditions from the "Old Country" in making kraut, wine, potica and other ethnic foods. He grew fresh vegetables in his home garden and was a tremendous cook. Paul looked forward to holidays so he could prepare his family special meals with his stuffed turkey using a "secret" recipe he learned from his beloved mother. Paul enjoyed old cars, collecting and trips to Cripple Creek with friends. He also liked the weekend drives he took with his sister, Katie, and her husband, Tom Paulovich.

Downen, 2215 Greenwood St., was instantly killed at 5:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when the bicycle she was riding in front of the 1900 block on Greenwood Street was struck by an auto driven by Miss Erma M. Fagerstrom. The Downen child was hurled against the gravel paving of the street and the back of her skull was crushed. She died in less than a minute after she was picked up in front of the auto. The Downen child was riding her bicycle on the sidewalk, coasting down an auto driveway entrance to the street at about the middle of the 1900 block on Greenwood, and riding back to the corner where she would again ride to the sidewalk and repeat the circle ride. A little girl companion was playing with her and both had bicycles. Happy in their play, the Downen child did not see the approaching auto which was traveling in the same direction she was riding, and thus was approaching from behind her. She turned down the driveway from the sidewalk to the street and the auto driven by Miss Fagerstrom, an 8 cylinder Oldsmobile, and the small bicycle ridden by the child, collided in the street a few feet from the edge of the sidewalk. The front fender of the auto struck the child on the side of the face, tearing the skin across the cheek and chin. The child was hurled to the street, the back of her head striking with great violence and breaking the skull. The auto was stopped in a distance of 21 feet, as measured by the county coroner, Dr. Ray Taylor, who investigated the accident. The little Downen child was breathing when picked up from the street but died in a few seconds, and before the auto ambulance which had been summoned from the Davis & Vories mortuary, could reach the scene. The child was taken to her home to blocks distant. Her parents recently came to Pueblo from Okla. Her father is a nephew of Gen. T. J. Downen, Pueblo pioneer and prominent real estate operator. It has not been decided whether or not an inquest will be held, although the investigation conducted by the coroner and the Dist. Atty.'s office is said to indicate that the accident was practically unavoidable, and that the auto was traveling at a moderate rate of speed. Miss Fagerstrom, driver of the auto was accompanied in the car by her mother at the time of the accident. They reside at 2222 Grand Ave. and Miss Fagerstrom's father is a prominent auto dealer. Miss Fagerstrom is a student of Centennial High School.

Doyle, Edward
Edward Doyle - Pueblo Indicator - September 11, 1915 - Died Of His Wound - Edward Doyle, Young Steelworker, Shot By Peter Gradash, a Bartender - Edward Doyle, a 20 year old youth, was shot by Peter Gradash, an Austrian, in front of Joe Smeker's saloon on Northern avenue last Saturday night, and died from the effects of the wound at a hospital on the following Tuesday. A coroner's jury rendered a verdict to the effect that Doyle was shot and killed by Gradash with felonious intent. Gradash was arrested and put in jail within an hour after the shooting, and is now on the verge of insanity over his rash act. The shooting is said to have followed a discussion over the war in which Gradash took a leading part and at times became excited, but neither Doyle nor his companions had any idea that he was in a dangerous mood.

Peter Semashko will conduct the services. A number of lodges of which he was a member will attend in a body and a number of people from outside points are here for the services. Interment will be in the family lot in Roselawn in charge of the McMinn undertaking Co. Pueblo Chieftain – August 18, 1918 – Dragash Murder and Blanda Wound – In a verbal confession notable for his completeness the details, made yesterday to Undersheriff J. Arthur Grady, W. C. (Billy) Mahar, 30 years old, a steelworker, has according to the statement made by Grady last night, established the connection between the shooting and killing last Monday night, or early Tuesday morning of Andro Dragash, prominent Bessemer merchant, and the shooting and serious wounding of Phillip Blanda which occurred at about the same hour – Mahar, together with a number of other people, including two women, is in the county jail were all are being held pending developments in the case. Undersheriff's Theory: Thus Grady's contention maintains since the first report of the killing of Dragash and the wounding of Blanda namely, that Dragash had gone to the spot where he met death by a gang of bootleggers, and that he was murdered by them or some of them for the money he was known to be carrying, would appear to be an established fact. Working upon this theory, Grady, with the assistance of his deputies and the city detective, Charles Baty, appears to have proven the correctness of his theory and paved the way for the capture and bringing to justice of the slayers of Andro Dragash, as well as breaking up an unusually bold and dangerous gang of bootleggers. Dragash Murdered - Sometime late Monday night or early Tuesday morning Andro Dragash, proprietor of a soft drink establishment at 1251 S. Santa Fe Ave. was shot and killed while riding in a small one-horse delivery wagon in the neighborhood of the Arkansas River bridge about midway between Salt Creek and the Pueblo stock yards and about 2 miles east of the city. His dead body was found about 5:30 o'clock Tuesday morning lying in the roadway some 50 yards south of the entrance to the office building of the stock yards. On the body was found $830 in cash. Dragash had been shot through the heart, and falling dead across the dashboard of the vehicle, his body had been carried several hundred yards north on the road he was traversing when shot. The horse had run away when the shots, one of which killed Dragash, had been fired. The body rolled out of the runaway wagon close to the stock yards. The horse, still attached to the blood smeared wagon, was found at First and Prospect Streets, half a mile from the stockyard entrance soon after the finding of Dragash's dead body. In the wagon was a lantern, Dragash's hat, and a Colt revolver containing one empty shell and five loaded chambers. Blanda Shot in Chest - At about 1 o'clock Tuesday morning Philip Blanda, an Italian, 23 years of age, was admitted to St. Mary's hospital suffering from a dangerous gunshot wound in the left breast. He is said to have claimed that he was shot by an unknown assailant while he (Blanda) was passing under a railroad bridge which spans a roadway leading from E. A St. toward El Dorado Ave. Blanda's companion, Fred Morroney, who says he was with Blanda when the latter was shot, contradicted Blanda's statements of the shooting in so many instances as to lead Sheriff Britt and his deputies to doubt the correctness of either of their statements, and to lean to the belief, at all times held by Grady, that Blanda and Morroney knew more than they would admit about the Dragash killing. Friday an operation was performed at St. Mary's hospital for the removal of the bullet from Blanda's back. It was removed in the presence of Undersheriff Grady, who is said to have fitted the missile into the empty shell of Dragash's gun and found it to fit perfectly and to be of the identical caliber of the Dragash weapon. While investigating these angles of the case the Sheriff's office, with the help of Detective Baty of the Police Department, continued their search for evidence to substantiate the claim that the shooting was the indirect result of a bootleg conspiracy. It was asserted that Dragash had lately been mixed up in a liquor case, and the officers moved on the assumption that Dragash had gone to the place where he was killed intending to buy a quantity of bootleg whiskey. Find Much Liquor - Following the discovery of Blanda in the hospital and the arrest of his companion, Morroney, Sheriff Britt, Undersheriff Grady, Chief of Police Daly, and Detective Baty went to the Morroney premises and there discovered in a garage an eight-cylinder, seven-passenger Oldsmobile auto which was later proven to have been stolen from Cheyenne, Wyoming, and which has since been returned to the owner. Here are said to follow other conflicting statements and damaging contradictions on the part of Morroney in the city jail and Blanda in the hospital. And now comes the statements credited by the Sheriff's office to W. S. (Billy) Mahar in his confession to Grady which the Sheriff's officers and police say establishes the fact of the connection between the shooting and killing of Dragash and the shooting and dangerous wounding of Blanda on the same night. Mahar's Alleged Confession - Last Sunday night, August 11, at about 9 o'clock, W. C. Mahar, Pete Yerkovitch, and Phillip Blanda went to Andro Dragash's place of business, 251 S. Santa Fe Ave., in Mahar's car. They stopped the car across the street from the Dragash place and Mahar and Yerkovitch went into Dragash's place to see him, and to offer him the opportunity to buy of them 18 cases of whiskey for $900. They left the place crossing the street to the automobile. While they were in the Dragash place a tire on one of the wheels had blown out. They jerked this tire off, threw it in the back of the car, replaced it with another and Mahar, Blanda, and Yerkovitch got into the car and drove away. Monday night, August 12, Mahar came back to Dragash's place at about 9 p.m. When he went into the Dragash place Dragash was behind the bar. Mahar spoke to Dragash and the latter called his wife to look after the place while he went out with Mahar. Dragash and Mahar got into the latter's automobile and drove to the "brewery" bridge over the Arkansas, Dragash to show Mahar just where the booze was to be delivered. Both then drove back to Dragash's place in Mahar's car. 18 Cases of Whiskey, $900 - Mahar says he was to have met Dragash at the place appointed at midnight Monday, August 12, and there delivered to Dragash the 18 cases of whiskey and collect $900. Mahar says Dragash failed to put in an appearance. Sometime before 2 o'clock on Tuesday morning Mahar, tiring of waiting for Dragash, went to the Dragash house, arriving there at 1:50 a. m. and upbraided Mrs. Dragash for the failure of her husband to keep his appointment. He says Mrs. Dragash told him to go back to the place that her husband would surely be there. He claims he returned to the appointed place and remained there until nearly 3 o'clock, and that then getting disgusted he, Mahar, drove away with the booze and took the whole load out to the place where it had been hidden. Ravine the Hiding Place - This place, according to the officers was in a ravine 2 miles north of the County Road between Pueblo and Canyon City, and 7 miles northwest of the city. Here the liquor, in nine gunny sacks, was hidden in the ravine. The ravine is on a ranch operated by a man named Evans, and was formerly a part of the George H. Paul Orchard track. The whiskey is said to have been brought here from N.M. by R. G. Rogers, said to have lately been arrested by the Sheriff's office force on information from Okla. charging Rogers and a young man named Hill with cattle stealing. According to the officers, Rogers blamed the Okla. incident on Hill who was sent to Okla. for trial. Rogers went free. It is said he went to N.M. with Frances Owen, son of the manager of the Owen Ranch (where the booze was hidden) and imported the liquor to Colo. The next night after the killing of Dragash, or Tuesday, August 13, was the day of the Barnum & Bailey Circus appearance in Pueblo. It is said Mahar went to the Owen ranch, got the liquor and took it to the house of Mike Stanovitch, 1711 East Abriendo Ave., and that it was agreed that while Mrs. Stanovitch was to pay him $900 for the booze that was offered to Dragash on the previous night, it was not then and there to be delivered but was to be taken and left in the old Iron City Lumberyard about two blocks away from the Stanovitch premises. Mahar says he delivered the booze, was paid $900 by Mrs. Stanovitch, and that when he turned over the money to Frances Owens and R. G. Rogers the latter paid him $60 for his services in delivering the goods and collecting the money. Rogers and Owen, Jr. are said to have left town. Mahar is said by Grady to have recently been convicted in Huerfano County for attempting to import liquor, and by his present confession faces a possible sentence to the penitentiary of a second offense. Yerkovitch, said to be a steelworker, is also said to have been fined for bootlegging in La Junta, and was later arrested as he was alighting from a Santa Fe train in the Santa Fe Ave. crossing with two suitcases full of booze. He was prosecuted by Prohibition Officer Fabrizio, is said to have confessed, pleaded guilty, and escaped with a fine because a local officer did not know of the previous conviction on the same kind of a charge. Booze Located - Yesterday afternoon a raiding party composed of Undersheriff Grady, Chief of Police Daly, Detectives Baty, Walton, and Lovern of the local police department, and county probation officer Sam Fabrizio, went to the Stanovitch house and started a search for the booze. It was necessary to tear out a lot of woodwork in the house before the booze was discovered, 18 cases hidden under a stairway leading to the second floor. Following the raid Stanovitch, his wife and son, Mike Lamich and wife; Mike Sajwrch, Steve Sajwreh, and Radich Korch were arrested in connection with the bootlegging in the case. Mahar, who was formerly employed in the Open Hearth Dept. of the steelworks is in the county jail as is his pal Peter Yerkovitch, another alleged confessed bootlegger. Blanda is under guard at the hospital and Fred Maroney, who admits he was with Blanda when the latter was shot, is in the city jail. It remains for the officers to capture Rogers and Owen to complete the round up of the bootlegging gang. Official Deductions - The alleged statement of Mahar that Blanda was with him on the first visit to Dragash's place to make the deal for the bootleg whiskey; the claim made by Sheriff Britt's officers that they had been able as far to corroborate every other statement of Mahar's confession, the further statement that Mahar says Blanda was not with him when he (Mahar) took the whiskey to the appointed place to sell it to Dragash; the fact that Blanda received that night a bullet in the chest of the same caliber as Dragash's gun, Maroney's alleged admission that he was with Blanda when the latter was shot are, in the opinion of Undersheriff Grady, circumstances warranting the assumption that Maroney and Blanda can tell more than they already have about the shooting both of Blanda and of Dragash. Pueblo Chieftain – August 19, 1918 – The funeral of Andrew Dragash was held yesterday morning at 10:30 from his home, 1251 Santa Fe Ave. and at 11:30 from the Russian Orthodox Church. Rev. Peter Semashko conducted the services. The Servian society of which he was a member preceded by Matt Jerman's band, attended in a body, and the funeral cortθge was one of the largest ever seen in Pueblo. The floral offerings were very numerous and beautiful and the church was filled to capacity with friends. Interment was in the family lot in Roselawn in charge of the McMinn Undertaking Co. Pueblo Chieftain – August 20, 1918 – Coroner's Jury Recommends the Holding of Blanda and Marroney – Many Witnesses Testify That Mystery of Dragash Murder Not Fully Cleared Up – That Andro Dragash came to his death as a result of a bullet wound inflicted by person or persons unknown to the jury, was the finding of the inquisitorial body which yesterday afternoon, under the direction of Coroner Taylor, and with the assistance of Deputy District Attorney Langdon, listened to evidence of persons called to testify. The jury recommended that Philip Blanda and Fred Marroney be held by the officers for further investigation. It is understood this will be done, and that probably several others will find themselves in restraint until the mystery is more fully fathomed. Dr. W. O. Patterson, who performed the autopsy, described the wound that caused Dragash's death. It was made by a .45 caliber bullet, weighing 244 grains and fired, the physician stated from a Colt revolver, which he determined from the marking which showed it was from a barrel having a left-hand twist to its rifling. Dr. Nicoletti, who removed the bullet from Blanda at St. Mary's hospital, stated that it is a .44. This entered through the third rib on the left side and was found near the sixth rib close to the spine. Police officer McDonald told about being called at 2:30 Tuesday morning on information that a man had been found dead near the stock yards. W. C. Mahar, who made the alleged confession concerning the whiskey he tried to sell to Dragash, reiterated his statements, and told how he had visited the Dragash home with Yerkovitz and once with Blanda, and also about his associations in the same deal with Blanda and Rogers. Mahar said he was simply trying to sell the liquor for Rogers and had offered it to Blanda. There were 18 cases of pints, and the price was to be $50 per case. He said the purchaser was to show him and did show him where to deliver the goods, at a point near the county bridge over the Arkansas River below the stockyard; as Dragash did not show up at the place at the time arranged, they went to his home and he was not at home. Marroney said he was out riding in a Hupmobile with Blanda on the Monday night of the shooting. "Just riding around," he said. Going home toward El Dorado Ave., and just as they drove out from under the viaduct, someone shot Blanda; he saw the flash, but could not distinguish who it was. His story was disjointed. When asked what he was doing in the First National Bank Monday (at the time Dragash is supposed to have been cashing his checks), he answered, "Who, me? What are you trying to pull off on me now? I wasn't there." Robert G. Rogers (who wore boots) said he had been living with one Owens, west of Pueblo. He was to give Mahar $60 to sell the booze. He also told how he had bought the liquor at Raton and brought it here himself and hid it in the Arroya west of the city on the Canon Road. The deal falling through with Dragash, he finally sold the booze to one Stanovitch and delivered it at a lumber yard. Mrs. Dragash testified, but beyond the fact that there had been callers who were hunting her husband, claiming they had a date with him, she revealed little. Undersheriff Grady made a clear-cut statement of his findings as stated in Sunday's Chieftain, covering all the ground completely. Chief Daly stated that his knowledge of the affair was identical with that of the Undersheriff. Mrs. Jesse Speer, who was camping with her children near the bridge, said she heard three shots and saw the Dragash horse running away with the wagon. Mrs. Stanovitch, through interpreter Predovich said there was to be 18 cases of whiskey when they bought it, but that it only counted out 12. Pete Yerkovich stated that he went with Mahar to Dragash, and that Mahar said he had 25 cases to sell. He said Mahar went in the back room with Dragash and that Mrs. Dragash gave him a drink of soda. This witness talked through Mr. Predovich and seemed to want to talk all day. Undersheriff Grady's testimony showed how thoroughly he had delved into the mystery; he watched all who testified throughout the hearing. Four or five lawyers besides the Dist. Attorney and his deputy were present. Pueblo Chieftain – March 2, 1919 – Alleged Murderer To Be Tried Soon – Charged with the murder of Andro Dragash on the night of August 12 near the Pueblo stock yards, Phillip Blanda and Fred Marone will be placed on trial in the District Court Wednesday morning. The prosecution will be conducted by assistant district attorney L. E. Langdon and John J. Barbrick. Twenty-one witnesses have been subpoenaed for the state, and a large number for the defense. It is anticipated that the trial will occupy the four remaining days of the week. The defense will be represented by attorneys Hoffmire, Cloud, Stewart, and Phelps. Pueblo Chieftain – March 5, 1919 – Alleged Murderers on Trial Today – With six lawyers, two official court interpreters and possibly 40 witnesses, the double trial of Philip Blanda and Fred Morone, both with their lives at stake, begins at 10 o'clock this forenoon before District Judge S. D. Trimble and a jury of 12 men. Assistant District Attorneys Lawrence E. Langdon, and John T. Barbrick will represent the state, and attorneys Hoffmire, Cloud, Parlipiano, and the firm of Stewart and Phelps will represent the defense. Walter L. Predovich will be the official interpreter for the Slavonic languages and Sam Fabrizio for the Italian language. It is anticipated that a considerable time will be occupied in the making of a jury of 12 men, and the estimate is that the trial of the case and the arguments of counsel will devour all the hours there will be in the week after tomorrow morning. Andro Dragash, a wealthy Austrian, who was murdered in the roadway, not far from the Pueblo stock yards on the night of August 12 last. He had been driving with a horse and wagon, and the rig with a horse being found some distance away early in the morning led to the discovery of the crime. Evidence adduced at the coroner's inquest brought out the facts that a huge liquor deal was in course of consummation, and that Dragash was to make a purchase amounting in the neighborhood of $1,000. At the hearing referred to, a number of persons admitted they had been connected with the liquor deal, but all denied knowledge of how the dead man came to be shot. It was shown that he had a large amount of money on his person, but this was not taken from the body by his murderers. One shot at been fired from a revolver carried by Dragash. On the same night Philip Blanda received a pistol shot in the chest and was taken to St. Mary's Hospital. Morone, at the inquest, admitted that he had been with Blanda that night for an automobile ride, and that someone unknown to either of them, shot Blanda while they were on the way home, and near the Spring Street viaduct. Blanda was taken from the hospital to the county jail as soon as he was sufficiently recovered from the wound.

Dugan, John F.
John F. “Jack” Dugan - Leadville Herald Democrat - January 14, 1886 - Death of John F. Dugan - Dugan - (Died) On December 26, at the Colorado State asylum for the insane at Pueblo, John F. Dugan, aged about 48 years. The above announcement will be read with painful regret by many of the old-time residents of Lake and Park counties, in which for the last twelve years “Jack” Dugan had made his home. A detailed account of his earlier life is not obtainable, except that he enlisted in the army when the first news of the rebellion reached his native town of Hillsdale, Michigan. He served through the war and was in many of the principal battles, always distinguishing himself by great courage. After the war he came west, and enjoying the excitement of frontier life, he followed the progress of the Kansas Pacific railroad, locating at each successive terminus of the road until it reached Denver. This portion of his life was checkered with the incidents so usual on the frontier at an early day. On one occasion at River Bend, in Kansas, a soldier from the neighboring post became so abusive that Jack expelled him from his place of business, the soldier left, swearing that he would return in a few minutes and kill him, and true to his word, armed himself with a rifle and made his appearance on the opposite side of the street, when Jack, seizing a carbine that stood against the wall, stepped out of the front door and both fired at the same moment; the soldier fell dead while Jack was uninjured. He immediately reported and surrendered himself to the commandant of the post, who, on investigation, ordered his release. Soon after reaching Denver he located at Alinn, in Park County, where he held the offices of town marshal and constable, and was charged with the duty, under the old territorial laws, of collecting the taxes for the town. Under all circumstances and in all positions he was remarkable for an utter absence of fear, and for his faithfulness to duty. The so called “bad men” soon learned that the marshal did not fear them either singly or in dozens and that however they might have terrorized other towns they could not do so in Jack's jurisdiction. The money that was often entrusted to his care, and sometimes in large amounts, everyone knew to be as safe as if in the strongest bank vault. In 1878 he came to Leadville, and by energy and industry soon accumulated what would have been a handsome competency, but the development of the town carried business away from the vicinity of his property which depreciated greatly in value. Three years ago he accepted employment as mailing clerk at the Leadville post office, in which position he exhibited the most extreme solicitude to have his work as perfect as possible, and it was while engaged in this position that his associates noticed peculiarities of temper and conduct that finally culminated in a sudden outbreak of insanity. He was removed to the asylum in the hope that a cure might be affected, but he gradually grew worse and died on the day after Christmas. In many respects Jack Dugan was a remarkable man. Whatever may have been the case in earlier days, he was for the last ten years a total abstainer from all forms of intoxicating drinks. When duty called him to act he seemed to regard the greatest dangers as trifles, and risked his life without the least hesitation. Absolutely honest himself, he demanded the same quality in others, and despised meanness under all circumstances. Like all persons of intense feeling, he was liable to error, and many times no doubt his actions may have been determined by the germs of the disease that afterward declared itself the first disorder of the wonderful, mysterious structure of the brain. Economical and frugal in expenditures for himself, he was always ready to relieve the sufferings of others, and when his mind became a wreck, the one only definite purpose remaining was to benefit the poor. As a friend he was loyal and true, as a citizen he was honest and just, and as a man he was the embodiment of all that is meant by the characteristic western expression, “he was square.” Without knowing it himself, he led a life as noble and chivalrous as did knights of olden time. Innocence and virtue found in him a prompt defender, and he needed no reward but the approval of his own conscience. Requiescat in pace. D. H. D.

Duhuart, Alfred
Alfred Duhuart - Pueblo Chieftain – April 1, 1919 – Rescuers Reach Scene of Death – Aguilar Mine Explosion Is Believed To Have Killed Thirteen Employees – Trinidad, Colo., March 31 – Eleven bodies, burned in some cases until identification was difficult, had been recovered late tonight from the Empire Mine of the Empire Coal Co., near Aguilar, where a gas explosion early today sent them to their doom without warning. Death apparently was instantaneous, the recovered bodies with one exception being found huddled together under piles of debris. Two other bodies have not been recovered. Grief stricken mothers, wives, and sisters who had waited anxiously at the mine entrance in the heavy rain throughout the day, aided in identification of the bodies as they were brought to the surface, one by one. The bodies were placed in a temporary morgue where the women relatives were permitted to assist in identification. Rescue parties are still at work in the mine and as soon as the other bodies are recovered an inquest will be held. The cause of the explosion has not been determined. One man, Mike Cozetti, apparently attempted to escape through an unused entrance to the mine but was overcome, and died when near escape. The identity of the two bodies remaining in the mine could not be established. Rescuers are continuing their search and hope to find the other bodies before morning. The identified dead are: Jack Futura, Fred Dussart, Abel Duran, Mike Cozetti, Mike Rossi, George Mavrogeorges, Joe Stradjet, George Fellis, Alfred Duhuart, Henry Coton, and John Lundquist. The rescuers were forced to remove piles of debris before the bodies could be recovered. They lay close together, badly burned and almost unrecognizable in some instances. A temporary morgue was established and plans made for holding an inquest as soon as the remaining two bodies have been recovered. Thirty-six men were in the mine when the explosion occurred, twenty-one escaping by an old entrance and two by the main shaft. The body of John Lundquist was recovered this afternoon. Of 36 men who were in the mine when the explosion occurred 23 made their way out in safety. The explosion, as indicated by conditions encountered by the rescue gangs, was confined to a small area of about 2,500 feet from the mouth of the mine. Wreckage at this depth barred the way of the helmet men but air conditions are good and the ventilating fan is working. It is feared, however, that the men caught in this part of the mine were killed instantly by the explosion or died soon after from the after damp which usually develops from an explosion of gas. Twenty-five years ago today the Empire had a similar explosion. Two men were killed and several injured.

Dulmage, David
David Dulmage – Rocky Mountain News – August 9, 1883 – Dulmage Dead – Mr. John Dulmage returned yesterday from Pueblo, whither he had gone to look after his brother David, who was run over by an engine at Pueblo. Through the delay of a telegram, the fact was not known in Denver until Tuesday. When Mr. Dulmage had arrived in Pueblo he found that his brother had died, and that the Ladies' Aid society of that city had buried him. The remains will be brought to Denver as soon as the weather will permit of his being disinterred. Rocky Mountain News – August 10, 1883 – State at Large – Pueblo Chieftain: "Davy Dulmage, the little boy who was run over by the switch engine and two cars at the Pueblo smelter on Tuesday morning at 3 o'clock, died yesterday about three hours after he was injured. It was impossible to do anything for the relief of the little sufferer. He stood his injuries like a little martyr, his greatest concern seeming to be that his mother should not learn of his injury, he expressing the belief that it would kill her. The coroner deemed an inquest unnecessary, and the boy's parents, who reside at Denver, were notified of his death. His death will prove a bitter lesson to the two companions who were with him."

Dunlap, Clyde A.
Clyde A. Dunlap - Albuquerque Journal - March 29, 2012 - Clyde A. Dunlap, age 91, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on March 25, 2012. Clyde was born December 18, 1920 in Trinidad, CO to Opal S. and Carl C. Dunlap. He lived as a young boy in the now "ghost town" of Dawson, NM. He moved to Albuquerque during the Great Depression and lived with his parents and three brothers on a small farm in the southwest valley. He graduated from Albuquerque High School where he set the state of New Mexico record in the 100 yard dash. This record stood for over 10 years. Clyde joined the Army Air Corps as a member of the 8th Air Force and served in World War II. He was stationed in Polebrook, Northamptonshire, England and became an engineer/top turret gunner on the B-17 "Flying Fortress" bomber aircraft. On the 14th mission (February, 1944 - of then S/Sgt Dunlap's B-17, aka the "Pistol Packin' Mama" (508 Bomb Squadron, 351 Bomb Group H) aircraft was attacked as it returned from a bombing run over Germany. After a furious gun battle with several Nazi aircraft in which all of the attacking enemy aircraft were destroyed, S/Sgt Dunlap's plane was forced to ditch into the wintry North Sea. As the crew struggled to exit the aircraft, S/Sgt Dunlap kept his poise and somehow found a way to release the aircraft's life raft, one of which had been heavily damaged by enemy fire. S/Sgt Dunlap and his fellow crew members were battered for several hours by 20-foot icy waves. While several crew members drowned or froze to death that day, S/Sgt Dunlap was able to save other lives besides his own, including that of crewmate S/Sgt "Red" Rawdon. He did that by holding Red's head out of the water for several hours as they all struggled in the one damaged, yet marginally usable life raft. He also slapped Red's face continually; something which Red later said kept him alive. When all hope of rescue had been lost, a British Air Sea Rescue vessel finally appeared on the horizon and rescued the surviving crew members thinking they were Germans, but were delighted to find they were "Yanks." These "Yanks" included S/Sgt Dunlap. Clyde was the last surviving member of this crew. Clyde spent the bulk of his professional career, over 40 years, at Sandia National Laboratories. He was a member of New Covenant Church. Clyde lived a full and wonderful life of gentleness, kindness, honesty, and honor. He married the love of his life, Doris M. Jurgensen, in 1946 and proved himself to be a faithful, loving husband to her until she passed away in 2007. He loved and missed her daily until he died. This beautiful love story included one child, his beloved daughter, Judith. Clyde was the ultimate husband and father and loved his family above all else. Clyde was also preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Ronald Dunlap and Carl Dunlap Jr. He is survived by his daughter, Judith (Judee) Dunlap Blaich and her husband, L. Mason Blaich; his beloved grandson, W. Parker Bryant and wife, Annie Bryant; great-granddaughter, Elison Ann Bryant; best friend and brother, Roy L. Dunlap; and numerous nieces and nephews. Special thanks go out to Clyde's brother, Roy L. Dunlap, his nephew, Roy Dunlap Jr., and his niece, Carla Beitler for the loving kindness extended to Clyde during the last several years of his life. Cremation has taken place and Memorial Services will be held Friday, March 30, 2012, 11:00 a.m., at the Chester T. French Memorial Mausoleum Chapel, 924 Menaul Blvd. NE. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Park.

Trooper Josh Lewis of the Colorado State Patrol said the woman who died was driving a white Subaru and collided with a Chevy SUV. The driver of the SUV was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Lewis said. The two drivers were the only people involved in the wreck. The crash happened around 12:30 p.m. and closed the highway in both directions at Mile Marker 233.

The driver of the Subaru, who was not wearing her seat belt, sustained fatal injuries and died on scene. Shaffer was transported to Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center in Salida where he was treated and released, according to the patrol. Drugs are suspected as a contributing factor in the crash, according to the patrol. Fremont County Coroner Dr. Dorothy Twellman was not able to release the name of the woman who died pending notification of relatives. An autopsy will be performed today. The accident forced authorities to close U.S. 50 in both directions for about 2 hours 40 minutes. Pueblo Chieftain - August 18, 2012 - Fatal crash victim ID'd - Woman was struck head-on by a passing vehicle - A 41-yearold Cotopaxi woman who died as the result of a two-car head-on crash on U.S. 50 nine miles east of here Thursday has been identified.

Pueblo Chieftain - August 24, 2012 - Suspect in fatal crash asks to return home - Judge holds off decision to hear from those who knew victim - A 60 year-old Iowa man under investigation for vehicular homicide appeared in Fremont County District Court on Thursday requesting a chance to return home. However, a judge delayed ruling on the request until the victim's survivors can have their say. William Shaffer of Iowa City, Iowa, is being investigated in the death of Heather Dunn, 41, of Cotopaxi who died Aug. 16 as the result of a two-car head-on crash on U.S. 50 nine miles east of Salida. Attorney Terry Wiggins asked that Shaffer be permitted to go home pending further action in the case. Wiggins said Shaffer had posted $30,000 bail and his bondsman had no objection. However, Deputy District Attorney Stacey Turner said she objected to Shaffer leaving without giving the victim's survivors a chance to weigh in on a change in bail conditions. She said victim notification laws indicate the victims have a right to be heard on the matter. Judge Julie Marshall ordered a new hearing for next Thursday for filing of charges and possible bond modification. According to the Colorado State Patrol, the crash occurred Aug. 16 when a 2011 Chevy SUV driven by Shaffer attempted to pass another westbound vehicle and collided head-on with an eastbound 1983 Subaru driven by Dunn. Dunn, who was not wearing a seat belt, died on scene. Shaffer was treated and released at the Salida hospital before being cited for vehicular homicide.

Duran, Abel
Abel Duran - Pueblo Chieftain – April 1, 1919 – Rescuers Reach Scene of Death – Aguilar Mine Explosion Is Believed To Have Killed Thirteen Employees – Trinidad, Colo., March 31 – Eleven bodies, burned in some cases until identification was difficult, had been recovered late tonight from the Empire Mine of the Empire Coal Co., near Aguilar, where a gas explosion early today sent them to their doom without warning. Death apparently was instantaneous, the recovered bodies with one exception being found huddled together under piles of debris. Two other bodies have not been recovered. Grief stricken mothers, wives, and sisters who had waited anxiously at the mine entrance in the heavy rain throughout the day, aided in identification of the bodies as they were brought to the surface, one by one. The bodies were placed in a temporary morgue where the women relatives were permitted to assist in identification. Rescue parties are still at work in the mine and as soon as the other bodies are recovered an inquest will be held. The cause of the explosion has not been determined. One man, Mike Cozetti, apparently attempted to escape through an unused entrance to the mine but was overcome, and died when near escape. The identity of the two bodies remaining in the mine could not be established. Rescuers are continuing their search and hope to find the other bodies before morning. The identified dead are: Jack Futura, Fred Dussart, Abel Duran, Mike Cozetti, Mike Rossi, George Mavrogeorges, Joe Stradjet, George Fellis, Alfred Duhuart, Henry Coton, and John Lundquist. The rescuers were forced to remove piles of debris before the bodies could be recovered. They lay close together, badly burned and almost unrecognizable in some instances. A temporary morgue was established and plans made for holding an inquest as soon as the remaining two bodies have been recovered. Thirty-six men were in the mine when the explosion occurred, twenty-one escaping by an old entrance and two by the main shaft. The body of John Lundquist was recovered this afternoon. Of 36 men who were in the mine when the explosion occurred 23 made their way out in safety. The explosion, as indicated by conditions encountered by the rescue gangs, was confined to a small area of about 2,500 feet from the mouth of the mine. Wreckage at this depth barred the way of the helmet men but air conditions are good and the ventilating fan is working. It is feared, however, that the men caught in this part of the mine were killed instantly by the explosion or died soon after from the after damp which usually develops from an explosion of gas. Twenty-five years ago today the Empire had a similar explosion. Two men were killed and several injured.

Duran, Jose Avenicio
Jose Avenicio Duran - Pueblo Chieftain - September 19, 1997 - `Mr. Parkview' dies after cancer battle -Droplets of water glistened like tiny lights on the 10 dwarf evergreens in front of Joe Duran's home Thursday morning. It was as if they shone especially for the gentle man who was known as "Mr. Parkview" for his years of volunteer work. Duran, 84, died Tuesday after a two-month battle with cancer. The trees outside his home on Cheyenne are fondly called Duran's Christmas trees, his son Abel said, so named by a neighbor's son a dozen years ago. They've become sort of a landmark. Jose Avenicio Duran was a man who simply had to work all the time, his wife, Anita, said. It began as a child in Aguilar when his father died in a mine accident. He quit school and went to work to support his mother, first working at nearby farms, then at the Depression-era CCC camps in Stonewall, Castle Rock and Longmont. He went to work in the mines himself in the 1930s before he and Mrs. Duran were married in 1936. He stayed in the underground trade for 24 years. "The last mine he worked in for many years was the Valdez," she said and her son added, "he used to say if there was a hole in the ground, he was in it." Duran took on a second career at what is now the University of Southern Colorado in the days when it was a junior college. He began as a custodian, but became a locksmith. In fact, the school sent him to Denver and to Chicago to learn the trade. "When they began building out there (the new USC campus), he really began maintaining all the locks," she said. But when he retired from USC, he simply "couldn't stay home; working was part of him," she said. So he began volunteering at Parkview Episcopal Hospital in 1983. "It was supposed to be three or four hours a day, but it became all day, five days a week," she said. At first he helped patients in wheelchairs and did other work around the hospital, she recalled. But when it appeared that an orderly was to be laid off, "he told them when he's fired, I quit," Abel said. Both the paid orderly and volunteer remained. Then, Duran became a volunteer greeter, a role that would endear him to hundreds of patients and their families. He became "gran'pa" to scores of children. Mrs. Duran recalled a family leaving the hospital calling to their son to join them. "No, I'm going to stay with gran'pa," the little one said. It was a scene that was repeated over the years and part of Duran's warmth that won him the hospital's volunteer of the year award in 1988. Duran was formal at the door of Parkview, always wearing a coat and tie, a condition that caused a florist deliveryman to once remark: "You look like the hospital director." "I am," Duran shot back with a broad smile. "I direct people to go here and I direct people to go there." That gentle sense of humor extended to his final illness, his son said. He thinks it was the same deliveryman who asked Duran what he was going to do when he gets to heaven. "Well, you know St. Peter at the gate," his son recalls his remarking with a twinkle' "he's getting old." The rosary will be recited at 7 p.m. today. Funeral mass will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday.

Durham, Berniece Bessie
Berniece Bessie Durham - Pueblo Chieftain - September 8, 2010 - Berniece Bessie Durham, longtime Pueblo resident, went to heaven on Sept. 4, 2010, at the age of 94. Berniece, also known as “Meecie” or “Cotton,” was born on Sept. 1, 1916, in Elkton, Mo. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Adelyn Crank; dozens of nieces and nephews and grandnieces and grandnephews. Preceded in death by her husband, Hilbert Albert “Red” Durham; her parents, George and Myrtle Crank; her sisters, Neta Sackman and Geraldine Crank; and brothers, Orlando “Orl,” Jerry, and Kenny Crank; as well as lifelong family friend, Joe Horvat.

They were married for 61 years until Red's death in 1997. Berniece worked at Baker's Shoes, followed by the Republic National Bank for many years.

If there was a child around, he or she could be found in Meecie's arms — and the child was probably being given candy that the parents didn't want the child to have.

An investigation of the pool by officials at the Y disclosed the fact that the boy's body was in the water. Coroner Dr. Ray Taylor was summoned and after a thorough investigation announced his belief that death was caused by heart failure. Young Durkin went to the Y in the afternoon after telling his mother that he was going down town to obtain employment, and having made application for work he afterwards joined his swimming class and entered the pool in company with a number of other boys of his age. The swimming class was given access to the pool by the instructor and later was called out of the pool at the allotted time as is usually the custom. The boys proceeded to their respective lockers, dressed and left the building, but Durkin was not missed. The first intimation the officials of the Y had that he had not gone home was when his parents called up yesterday morning to say that he had not come home the night before, but supposing that he had obtained employment at the Western Union Telegraph office, which would necessitate his remaining on duty late, ____ the door unlocked and went there yesterday morning, however, when the boy had not come home and knowing that he intended to join his swimming class, they phoned the Y. An investigation of the locker he used show that his clothes were still there just as he had left them when he entered the pool. An examination of the bottom of the pool was then made and his body discovered where it probably had lain when it sank unnoticed by his companions. Young Durkin was known as a good swimmer and diver and was fond of executing difficult feats for the amusement of his companions. Nobody in or around the pool saw him sink. The supposition is that in diving he was suddenly attacked with heart failure and that death being instantaneous his body never came to the surface until brought up by the coroner this morning. An examination of the body failed to disclose a bruise or discoloration of any kind and according to Coroner Taylor his body would not have come to the surface for some time. This is the first casualty that has occurred at the Y since the institution was opened. The temperature of the water was about 80 degrees so that he could not have been chilled while swimming or diving. Coroner Taylor gave it as his opinion that it would have been impossible to have saved the boy for the reason that his death occurred while he was under water and that his body did not come to the surface at all. It is stated by officials at the Y that casualties such as happened at the Pueblo Y yesterday occur about once in five years in all of the Y. M. C. A's of the United States, which number several thousand. He is survived by his parents, two brothers, Emmett and Francis and two sisters, May and Dorothy. The body is at the McMinn Undertaking parlors. Pueblo Chieftain – May 2, 1918 – The body of John Joseph Durkin is at McMinn's Undertaking Parlors and will be removed to the home of his parents, 1435 East Evans Ave., this morning. The funeral announcement will be made as soon as the father arrives from Portland, Ore. Pueblo Chieftain - May 6, 1918 - The funeral of John Joseph Durkin was held yesterday afternoon at 1:30 from the home of his parents, 1435 East Evans Avenue, and at 2 o'clock from St. Francis Xavier Church. Rev. Father Bertram conducted the services and delivered a very impressive eulogy. The church was filled to capacity with friends and the floral offerings were very beautiful, the casket being completely covered and six young men were laden with them.

Dussart, Fred
Fred Dussart - Pueblo Chieftain – April 1, 1919 – Rescuers Reach Scene of Death – Aguilar Mine Explosion Is Believed To Have Killed Thirteen Employees – Trinidad, Colo., March 31 – Eleven bodies, burned in some cases until identification was difficult, had been recovered late tonight from the Empire Mine of the Empire Coal Co., near Aguilar, where a gas explosion early today sent them to their doom without warning. Death apparently was instantaneous, the recovered bodies with one exception being found huddled together under piles of debris. Two other bodies have not been recovered. Grief stricken mothers, wives, and sisters who had waited anxiously at the mine entrance in the heavy rain throughout the day, aided in identification of the bodies as they were brought to the surface, one by one. The bodies were placed in a temporary morgue where the women relatives were permitted to assist in identification. Rescue parties are still at work in the mine and as soon as the other bodies are recovered an inquest will be held. The cause of the explosion has not been determined. One man, Mike Cozetti, apparently attempted to escape through an unused entrance to the mine but was overcome, and died when near escape. The identity of the two bodies remaining in the mine could not be established. Rescuers are continuing their search and hope to find the other bodies before morning. The identified dead are: Jack Futura, Fred Dussart, Abel Duran, Mike Cozetti, Mike Rossi, George Mavrogeorges, Joe Stradjet, George Fellis, Alfred Duhuart, Henry Coton, and John Lundquist. The rescuers were forced to remove piles of debris before the bodies could be recovered. They lay close together, badly burned and almost unrecognizable in some instances. A temporary morgue was established and plans made for holding an inquest as soon as the remaining two bodies have been recovered. Thirty-six men were in the mine when the explosion occurred, twenty-one escaping by an old entrance and two by the main shaft. The body of John Lundquist was recovered this afternoon. Of 36 men who were in the mine when the explosion occurred 23 made their way out in safety. The explosion, as indicated by conditions encountered by the rescue gangs, was confined to a small area of about 2,500 feet from the mouth of the mine. Wreckage at this depth barred the way of the helmet men but air conditions are good and the ventilating fan is working. It is feared, however, that the men caught in this part of the mine were killed instantly by the explosion or died soon after from the after damp which usually develops from an explosion of gas. Twenty-five years ago today the Empire had a similar explosion. Two men were killed and several injured.
