Fain, Fountain Mayfield
Fountain Mayfield Fain - The La Veta Advertiser - October 9, 1914 - Died on Sunday, October 4, 1914, Mr. F. M. Fain, aged 89 years, 9 months, and 7 days. Mr. Fain was born in Indiana December 27, 1825, and lived in that state until after his marriage, later removing to Illinois and then to Kansas, where he followed farming as an occupation for several years. In 1880 he came to La Veta and for a time worked with the bridge gang; Mrs. Fain and the family arrived here later. Their first home was in the Martin Addition, they then moved on what is now the Lougheed place, and finally bought what is known as the Harris place in South La Veta, where Mrs. Fain died; since that time Mr. Fain has lived mostly with his daughter and son-in-law either at this place or at Hotchkiss. During the summer he had been making his home with the Arnold family on the old Hill ranch at the head of the Cuchara. Although he had been for sometime unable to move around without assistance, he had otherwise enjoyed fairly good health and spent much of his time reading. Nothing unusual was noticed in his condition until Saturday morning when he lost consciousness and finally passed away easily at 1:30 Sunday morning. Mr. Fain was a veteran of the Mexican war and had served several terms in the Kansas house of representatives. During his thirty-four years of residence in La Veta he has gained the love and respect of the community. Since youth he had been a member of the Baptist Church. Mr. and Mrs. Fain had twelve children, four boys and eight girls, several of whom died when young; the three daughters, Mrs. Asa Arnold, Mill Lizzie Fain, and Mrs. John Cotterell were the only ones ever in La Veta, and it is an unusual fact that the old gentleman outlived all of his large family. The funeral occurred from the Baptist Church on Tuesday morning and he was laid to rest beside his wife in the La Veta Cemetery. He had expressed himself ready to go but had hoped to cast a ballot for “dry” Colorado at the election this fall.

She married John Faiola at age 16 and they raised three children, first in Lime, Colo., and then in Pueblo. Besides working hard to raise her family, Elizabeth worked all her life at many odd jobs to help her husband "make ends meet" - even working at CF&I during World War II.

He graduated from East High School after his junior year with perfect attendance — quite a feat, considering his physical limitations. He showed great courage during this endeavor and throughout his life. He lived in Denver and attended a school for the disabled under the watchful eye of his Aunt Barb, and Uncle Joe, who gave him special care and guidance. He graduated from the National College of Business after he returned to Pueblo. After many years in his family's home, Brent's health required him to make a new home at Minnequa Medicenter, where he received devoted care and made many friends there. We want to thank the staff and residents for all the kindness and love they gave to Brent during his time there. Brent was an avid sports fan and a devoted supporter of his brothers during their sports careers. He loved “his” Rockies, and during a recent visit to Pueblo by Troy Tulowitzki, he was invited to come to Coors Field, where he met and talked with many of the players. Todd Helton presented him with one of his bats and Brent was so delighted. We thank Jim Kellogg and his staff for their generous efforts, making a beautiful memory for Brent and his family. We also want to thank the Pueblo Group involved, including Sal Acuna, for giving Brent this opportunity. Brent also loved his radio friends and relied on the radio to listen to all of the games and to win many contests. Brent will be dearly missed by all who loved him. He showed us all how to appreciate the simple things of life. Be at peace, our son, and we will love you forever. Memorial service, 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2010, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel. Family requests people wear their Rockies shirts to the service in Brent's honor. A memorial fund has been set up through the funeral home in Brent's name to establish a park bench and plaque to be placed at Runyon Field, where he spent so much time.

She was a member of Holy Trinity Church, the Catholic Daughters, the Legion of Mary Society, and attended daily Mass.

She took pleasure in reading religious books, going on picnics, sewing, crocheting and making ceramics. She was an Olympic diver and loved to swim. Her great joy was to cook and bake for family and friends. Ruth led an exemplary life, and positively touched countless people throughout the world. “Everyone just needs love. We are all the same, no matter whether black, white, red, yellow, green or purple,” she often said. She will be sorely missed. The family wishes to extend our deep gratitude for the loving care of the doctors and nurses at California Pacific Medical Center's Emergency Room, Davies 3 North, 4 North and Palliative Care Department. All staff at CPMC Coming Home Hospice made Ruth's final days ones filled with love and compassion. We will forever be grateful. Thank you to Fr. Faustine Mosha for his spiritual succor for “Mom.” And thank you to all who prayed for and offered support for Ruth. As prayers and loving wishes poured in literally from all over the world, she felt them; they helped to make the transition a peaceful one for her.

Faris, Joshua
Joshua Faris - Pueblo Chieftain - June 15, 1994 - A 16-year-old Pueblo County High School student was killed Tuesday afternoon near Vineland when his small sedan collided head-on with a truck. The truck was pulling a fifth-wheel trailer loaded with 13,000 pounds of hay. The truck driver and a passenger were injured, but escaped the inferno that resulted when the truck's fuel tank ruptured and burst into flames after the collision. Witnesses, including school classmates and several family members at the scene, identified the victim as Joshua Farris. Pueblo County Coroner Jim Kramer said the youth died at the scene of massive head injuries. The accident occurred at 4:20 p.m. on U.S. 50C, about 300 feet west of 27th Lane, said Trooper Charles Pulver. Farris' eastbound 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass veered across the center line into the westbound lane when it hit the larger Ford pickup. The driver of the truck, Dennis Millard, 41, of 2293 County Farm Road, received injuries to his back, a leg and ribs and was taken to St. Mary-Corwin Hospital. Millard's 14-year-old son, Jason, was treated for cuts and bruises. Pulver said he could find no explanation why the Farris vehicle moved into oncoming traffic. There was no indication at the scene that alcohol or drugs had any role in the accident. "There was no real speed involved," said Pulver. "The truck was going about 35 miles per hour and the car was going around 45, but that's enough." Kramer said an autopsy today may provide some answers to the questions. Traffic on the busy highway was stopped for five hours as the wreckage, debris, and smoldering hay were removed. (CORRECTION: Joshua Faris' name was misspelled in this article. There is only one "r" in it, Faris. This correction did not appear in the paper.)

Faris, Mary Alice
Mary Alice Faris - Pueblo Chieftain - December 28, 2010 - Heaven welcomed a special angel, Mary Alice Faris, on Dec. 22, 2010. Born in Gardner, Colo., on April 15, 1925, to Jonah Jennings "Jean" and Susan Chandler "Channie" Frasher, she spent her childhood in the company of her older brother, Howard, her parents, grandmother and various animal playmates. She attended school in Gardner but before graduating, married the love of her life, Joe Edward Faris. They spent 62 years together raising their seven children, numerous nieces and nephews and many orphaned calves. Joe Edward preceded her in death in 2003. Mary Alice was a true pioneer who enjoyed a life full of adventure, challenge and courage. She was a classy, one-of-a-kind lady with a great sense of style and attention to detail. Mary had a pure heart and a genuine love of humanity and lived by the Golden Rule. She never knew a stranger and welcomed many people to her business, her home and her table. Her fabulous cooking was enjoyed by thousands. A naturalist and a conservationist with the utmost respect for Mother Nature, she wasted not a day to be productive nor a chance to recycle. She was curious and always eager to learn, teach and lead by example. Mary was a perfectionist who expected a lot of herself and encouraged others to do their best. Her energy was phenomenal as was her ability to make everyone she met feel special. She had a fine mind and was a smart businesswoman, instrumental in the success of the Marlboro Inn and Faris Land & Cattle, where she worked until she was 84. Her wonderful life was filled with many accomplishments, most recently being named Huerfano County Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year for 2009. Mary Alice had a sharp memory and enjoyed recalling the local history on her many drives around Huerfano County. She enjoyed her family, cooking, gardening, gambling, turquoise jewelry and doing crossword puzzles in ink. Her final summer was spent harvesting the fruit from the trees that sprouted in her compost pile and writing a cookbook with her daughters. Mary Alice spent the last 10 months in her home under the care of her family and the Sangre de Cristo Hospice. They made her final days pleasant, pain free and peaceful, and she was very grateful for their care, friendship and the sunshine they brought into her life. She will be missed by the many whose lives she touched, especially her large family: children, Joy Faris, Ray (Diann) Faris, Gay (Dave) Farmer, Jann (Tom) Vail, Edna (Randy) Dust, Andy Faris, Nick Faris, 15 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren, all of whom loved her dearly and will treasure the memories created with her. A private service will be held at a later date to celebrate her life. Mary Alice donated her body to science, and her family is planning a memorial garden in remembrance of her. The community will be invited to participate. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to one of the causes she believed in and supported: Sangre de Cristo Hospice, the Fox Theater, Dorcas Circle or the Spanish Peaks Library.

Tom graduated from Pueblo Catholic High in 1952 and Santa Clara University in California in 1956, where he received a bachelor's degree in economics. In 1959, he graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder, with an LL.B (law degree). Throughout his life, Tom dedicated his energies to public service and the underdog. Tom loved his hometown, Pueblo, and accomplished a great deal for the community. He was a senior partner in the premier law firm of Petersen & Fonda and specialized in education, health care and public utilities law. Tom was the longtime attorney for Parkview Medical Center, Pueblo City Schools and Southeast Colorado Power Association. Tom championed the rural electric company based in La Junta in “colorful” cases against Public Service Co. and Montrose-based Colorado Ute. A former state representative from Pueblo, Tom served as one of the youngest minority leaders in the nation. During his long political career, he was a candidate in the gubernatorial Democratic primary. Tom had a lifelong love of radio and owned KBRR in Leadville and KGHF (later KKAM) in Pueblo. Tom Farley was a great friend and supporter of the Colorado State University System. In past years, he served as the chairman of the CSU State Board of Agriculture. For the past two years, Tom also served on the CSU Board of Governors, which includes schools in Fort Collins and Pueblo. At the time of his death, he served as community advisor to Wells Fargo Bank of Pueblo and on the Catholic Diocese of Pueblo Finance Committee. He served on the Health Net (QualMed) board of directors and as a regent for Santa Clara University in California. Tom also was president of the Farley Foundation and was active in the Colorado Forum, Rotary Club No. 43, Monday Evening Club, BPO Elks No. 90, Knights of Columbus and Pueblo County and Colorado Bar associations. He previously served on the boards for Public Service Company of Colorado, Colorado Wildlife Commission, Colorado Public Radio, Pueblo Catholic Charities, Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce and Pueblo Economic Development Corp. Tom was also a charter trustee of Great Outdoors Colorado and helped secure a $1 million legacy grant for the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk Project. As a member of the Colorado State Fair Commission, he fought hard to keep the Fair in Pueblo and first introduced “Farley's Fireworks" to the annual event. He was instrumental in expanding the status of the Junior Livestock Sale and by inviting prominent Denver businesses to form a buyers' group and increase prices for the prize-winning animals. Throughout his lifetime, Tom received many honors, including Pueblo Community College's Pueblo Hall of Fame, Distinguished Service awards from the University of Colorado and University of Southern Colorado (now CSU-Pueblo), Sierra Club's “Foremost Among Fifty” (1978), Southern Colorado Press Club's Mel Harmon Community Award and Parkview Medical Center Foundation's Starlight Gala Honoree. Tom Farley was also listed in Marquis' "Who's Who in America," "Who's Who in Business and Finance," and "Who's Who in the World." He loved his travels around the world, including favorite trips to Portugal, Prague, India and Turkey. He was disappointed not to be able to visit Iran, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon because of his illness this spring. Tom Farley was most proud of his children and grandchildren and their accomplishments: Father John B. Farley, pastor of Immaculate Heart of Mary in Grand Junction; Michael M. Farley, director of budgets at Colorado State University-Pueblo; Mike's wife, Stella, a dental hygienist; Kelly K. Farley, security guard; Anne M. Farley, certified occupational therapist assistant and licensed massage therapist; and Anne's companion, Jack, an office manager at DGI Supply Co. His oldest granddaughter, Maria, will be attending Santa Clara University in California in the fall. Grandchildren Isabella and Thomas attend Heritage High School in Littleton, Colo. Tom established scholarships at Pueblo Community College in honor of his daughters and daughter-in-law. When asked about his greatest lifetime achievements, Tom would often talk about being appointed by former Bishop Charles A. Buswell to the Christian Unity Commission, which organized the first ecumenical Mass with Colorado Episcopal Diocese Bishop Minnick. In post-Vatican II times, Tom took great pleasure in hosting many activist church leaders in his home such as Father Charles Davis, Father Daniel Barrigan, Father Phillip Barrigan and prominent nuns during those turbulent times. He also traveled to El Salvador, where he visited with activists from Santa Clara after the deaths of Archbishop Romero, several Jesuits and a group of Catholic nuns. He helped establish the Nancy Crafton Farm Worker/Migrant Worker Endowment Fund at the Southern Colorado Community Foundation. During the last decade of his life, he worked closely with Chief Judge Dennis Maes and Magistrate Rebecca Moss to create a successful Truancy Court program to help keep youths in school. As chair of the Colorado Wildlife Commission (1975-1979), he spearheaded a drive to reintroduce moose to Colorado. Today, there are an estimated 1,000 moose in the state. As a proponent for the Frying Pan-Arkansas Water Project, Tom recognized the value and importance of water to this region. He loved artistic water fountains and felt they were important focal points for public buildings and gathering places. He gave of his own money and encouraged others to support the building of fountains. Tom and the late Bret Kelly donated the campus fountain to Colorado State University-Pueblo in 1987. The late Dr. Gerry Reilly and Rosemary Reilly helped Tom build the Reilly-Farley fountain at HARP and Santa Clara University and also donated money for water fountains located at the Colorado State Fairgrounds, Confluence Park (Victoria and Grand avenues) in Pueblo, Sangre de Cristo Arts & Conference Center (in honor of Kathy Farley) and entryway of Parkview Medical Center. Tom was renowned for his storytelling and wicked sense of humor. He loved good food and wine and enjoyed hosting parties to celebrate Columbus Day, Bastille Day, Cinco de Mayo and many other political gatherings. Christmas was Tom's favorite holiday, and he looked forward to having the annual “Goose Dinner” at his home, where invited guests listened to a recording of Charles Dickens' “A Christmas Carol” portrayed by Ronald Coleman. He hosted parties at the Farley Ranch for friends and charity benefits. Although a life-long Democrat, Tom recently became a fan of Fox News for its “balanced” news coverage and frequent stories about the lovely and photogenic Sarah Palin. As a voracious reader, regular Christ the King parishioner, devout Catholic, Jesuit-educated, he will be missed by his family and many friends. Thanks to the great care from the staff at Parkview and special care given at home by Mary, Dean and Jason, all of whom made his final months more comfortable. There will be no viewing. Vigil service, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26, 2010, and funeral Mass, 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 27, 2010, with Bishop Fernando Isern, Msgr. Thomas Adrians and Father John B.

Farrar, George Howard
George Howard Farrar – Pueblo Chieftain – June 11, 1918 – 3 Killed in Terrible Auto-Passenger Train Collision – As a result of one of the worst grade crossing accidents that ever happened in Pueblo, two persons were killed outright, a third person died several hours later, and a fourth was seriously injured. A fifth person, Theodore Marshall, escaped by jumping when he saw that a collision between the passenger train in the automobile was about to occur. The dead are Mr. and Mrs. George Howard Farrar, colored, aged about 35 years, and Cecil, the 10-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry G. Elliott, colored, 1815 W. 17th St., George H. Farrar, 38, husband of the dead woman, was removed to Minnequa Hospital by the United Undertaking Co. ambulance in a dying condition. He suffered dangerous injuries to the head. He has never resume consciousness since the coalition, and his death occurred at about 11:20 o'clock. Mrs. Henry G. Elliott, mother of the boy who was instantly killed, was also removed to Minnequa Hospital, the Davis & Vories ambulance making an emergency run to the scene, and from there to the hospital with the injured woman. Her condition is said to be such as to warrant the belief that she will recover. Mrs. Elliott suffered a fracture of the left wrist and bruises and contusions on almost her entire body. She was in an unconscious condition for a short time following the collision but recovered consciousness in a few minutes. She was suffering great pain when taken to the hospital. Cecil Elliott, the boy, was thrown clear of the wrecked automobile and landed on his head on a rock approximately 90 feet from the point where the car was struck. His brains were dashed out upon the ground and the little body lay crumpled in a pool of blood. Death was probably instantaneous. The horribly dismembered body of Mrs. Farrar was picked up at a point almost 300 feet down the track from the point at which the car was hit. The head was almost completely severed from the trunk, and the torso was so horribly mangled and dismembered as to bear not the faintest resemblance to a human form. The woman's left limb, torn out at the hip, was hurled some twenty feet beyond the remainder of the body, where it was found on the railroad embankment. Parts of the wrecked automobile were strewn over an area of almost an acre, and clothing, blood, and parts of the bodies lay strewn alongside the track for a distance of nearly 300 feet from the point where the accident occurred. The scene of the accident is the grade crossing of the Santa Fe Railroad, about 100 feet west of the intersection of 17th St. and Hallack Avenue. The train was a Santa Fe passenger train No. 610 from Denver, due to arrive at the Union Depot at 8: 10 p.m. The time of the accident, as near as can be learned, was about 8:0 3 p.m. The train, composed of the cars, in charge of crew composed of Engineer H. E. Cox of La Junta, Fireman J. J. Maxwell of Denver, and Conductor C. J. Hinshaw, Denver, was coming down the long grade toward the city at a speed said by Fireman Maxwell to have been about 30 to 35 miles an hour. There is no flagman at this crossing, no warning bells or signals of any kind, and witnesses of the accident disagree as to whether or not the engineer sounded the whistle as he approached the crossing. The automobile, a seven-passenger Studebaker belonging to Farrar, had reached a point squarely in the middle of the railroad track when it was struck by the great engine of the passenger train. The blow was terrific as is evidenced by the position and the condition of the wrecked automobile and by the condition of the bodies of the dead and injured. The train is said to have run past the spot nearly an eighth of a mile before it was stopped and backed up to the point where the body of Mrs. Farrar lay alongside the tracks. Word was telephoned to Sgt. Gar McCafferty of the Police Department at police headquarters, who promptly directed that aid be rushed to the scene. The ambulance of the United Undertaking Co. was dispatched by Santa Fe men in the city and was the first to reach the scene. It was closely followed by that of Davis-Vories and of the McCarthy and of McMinn. The injured woman was taken in the Davis-Vories ambulance and Farrar was taken in the United ambulance. Both patients were removed to Minnequa hospital. The miraculous escape of Theodore Marshall from the fate which befell the others in the party is told by Marshall in his own words as follows: "Mrs. Elliott and Mrs. Farrar were in the front seat of the car. Mrs. Elliott was driving the car, and Mrs. Farrar was sitting beside her teaching her how to handle a car. We had just been in Bessemer where my wife got out of the car at our home. Had she remained in the car she would probably have shared the fate of the others. It had not been 15 minutes since we had left my house till the accident happened. Farrar and I were on the little auxiliary seats just back of the front seat, and the little boy (Cecil Elliott, killed) was alone in the big rear seat. Just as we reached the approach to the crossing Mrs. Elliott slowed down the car, following Mrs. Farrar's instructions as to how to handle a car on a hill or grade. Just at that instant I saw the big train looming up right in front of us. I yelled, and somehow or other, I cannot tell you just how, I got out of the car on the side toward the approaching train. The automobile was moving west along 17th St. and the train was coming from the north. I was in the seat nearest the train. I fell out or jumped out, and just then I heard the crash." Marshall escaped without a scratch. The train was held at the spot for nearly an hour after the accident while the crew assisted as best they could to care for the living and the dead. Sheets from the sleeping car were laid over the mangled forms of the victims, and other sheets and cloths were torn up to make bandages for the living. First aid was rendered pending the arrival of physicians from the city. Chief of Police J. M. Daly, Chauffeur McDonald, Detective Baty, and Undersheriff Grady went to the scene and rendered assistance to the coroner's office in the gathering of the evidence of the witnesses, and in the handling of a crowd of nearly 1,000 people who had been drawn to the spot by news of the wreck. Curiosity seekers were in the crowd, and it became necessary for the police to clear the grounds of the great crowd which had gathered. Coroner Ray Taylor and Deputy Coroner Ray Davis were promptly on the scene and ordered the removal of the bodies to the Davis & Vories morgue pending the inquest, the time of which is to be announced later. Farrar and his wife are said to have become very wealthy through the sale of some oil lands in the neighborhood of Muskogee, Okla. They came to Pueblo about one month ago and had been visiting at the home of Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Kelly, 1531 Berkeley Ave. They have visited in Pueblo on numerous occasions and were quite well-known to many people. Mrs. Farrar is said to have been a full blood Creek Indian woman. Her oil lands brought the couple wealth. Pueblo Chieftain – June 14, 1918 – Relatives Claim Bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Farrar – John Farrar, brother of the man who was killed in the automobile-railroad collision here on the evening of June 10, and Moses Martin, a brother-in-law of the late Mrs. Farrar, arrived in the city yesterday to look after the affairs of their dead relatives. Farrar comes from Muskogee, Okla., and Martin from Fort Smith, Arkansas. They called on Public Administrator J. D. King at the offices of the county court, and were informed that under the Colo. law estates cannot be closed within one year. This appeared to be a disappointment to the visitors, though they did not so express themselves. They were shown the property found upon the bodies and at their place of abode. There was little aside from two gold watches, a diamond or imitation, a gold nugget worth probably $50; for insurance policies totaling a face value of $1,900; the remains of an automobile and some clothing, also in the neighborhood of $60 in money and possibly a small bank deposit. Martin was asked if Mrs. Farrar was a Cherokee Indian. His reply was that Mrs. Farrar and his wife were sisters, and that he believed they claimed to have some Indian blood in them. It is expected that they will soon take the bodies of their dead relatives home with them. A peculiar feature of the latest discovered accident policy made to Mrs. Farrar, was that it would have expired at 12 o'clock on the night of which she lost her life at 8:10. She died just two hours and fifty minutes before the $800 policy what had become null and void. Pueblo Chieftain – June 15, 1918 – The remains of Lizzie and Grant Farrar, the couple who were killed in the auto accident at the 17th St. crossing on the 10th were forwarded by the Davis & Vories Undertaking Company to Fort Smith, Ark., last evening, accompanied by the brothers, John Farrar and Moses Martin.

Pueblo Chieftain – June 13, 1918 – Coroner's Jury Investigates Railroad Crossing Accident – An inquest over the body of Mrs. Lizzie Farrar, one of the three victims killed Monday afternoon at the Santa Fe Crossing on 17th St., was held yesterday afternoon at the Davis & Vories Undertaking Parlors. Coroner Ray Taylor presided and an inquiry into the death of the woman was made by a coroner's jury of six. The inquest, while directed to an investigation of Mrs. Farrar, also included the investigation of the death of her husband and of Cecil Elliott, 13-year-old boy who was killed in the same accident when the Farrar auto and a Santa Fe passenger train collided at the crossing. Stories of the accident as told by witnesses indicated that the auto was approaching from the east and the train was coming south. The fender of the engine hit the center of the motor of the auto. The auto was reduced to a complete wreck. The engineer on the engine stated that he did not see the auto until after the collision occurred. His firemen saw the danger just before the auto was struck and called to the engineer to stop. The air emergency brakes were applied and the train came to a stop, but not until it had run several hundred yards. The train crew swore the engine had whistled for the crossing, and that the bell was ringing. Other witnesses testify that the whistle was not sounded for the crossing, and that the bell was not ringing. Theodore Marshall, who was the only person in the wrecked auto to escape serious injury or death, stated that none of the occupants of the auto saw the train until the auto and the engine were only a few feet apart, and both approaching the crossing.

Feiccabrino, Emma
Emma (Stringari) Feiccabrino - Huerfano Journal - October 4, 2013 - Emma (Stringari) Feiccabrino, whose unfailing good cheer brightened the counter of a Main Street Walsenburg shop for more than 30 years and enlivened countless family gatherings for many more years than that, died at her home Wednesday, September 18, with family members at her side. She was 92. Emma was most widely known in Walsenburg as a friendly face who greeted customers at J&L Electric in the 500 block of Main Street, where she and her husband Joe operated an appliance store and repair center for all things electrical for more than 50 years. He survives. Emma often worked side by side with Joe in the store, a spot which also served as a source for popular music for the generation of Walsenburg youth who purchased vinyl 45 rpm discs from the J&L display case. Joe and Emma often went on after-hours service calls together. Emma would pack coffee and sandwiches for a trip to repair commercial refrigeration installations on ranches and dairies in the far reaches of Huerfano County – sometimes including one or more the couple's three children – to make the trip a family picnic as much as a repair mission. Improvised family picnics were Emma's specialty. For years she packed coolers of food into one of the J&L work vans for a family occasion. Using a metal milk crate over an open fire she would serve pasta in the Sand Dunes, at a Blue Lake fishing trip or mushroom hunting ventures on the Greenhorn to an appreciative group sitting on old quilts spread over the ground. She never tired of the beauty of southern Colorado. When given a 35 mm camera, she took dozens of photographs of the Spanish Peaks from every angle, under every kind of light. Her children learned to count on an update on the Spanish Peaks when catching up on hometown news over the phone – new snow, lots of snow, not much snow and so on. Born Emma Stringari on December 31, 1920, in Lester, CO, she was the sixth among nine children born to coal miner Vigilio Stringari, and his wife Rose Dalfior. She attended elementary and high school in Canon City. She graduated from St. Mary's College of Nursing in San Francisco in 1942 and served as a naval nurse in Mare Island Naval Hospital in Vallejo, CA, and at Camp Parks in Shoemaker, CA, from 1942-1944. She and Joe married on September 5, 1944, in St. Mary's Church. They met on a blind date arranged by her sister Irene and her husband, Chuck Rino. Joe proposed marriage to Emma on Valentine's Day 1942. Emma's polenta parties and pies earned her a reputation as a superior cook but she liked to confess that she had little instruction in cooking before she married. Her mother had taught her only how to cook a rabbit, so she served rabbit every day for weeks, until Joe finally protested. She learned fast. She cooked as many 40 pies in a day to supply her close friends Nick and Mary Tessitorre when they owned the restaurant that is now known as Corrine's. Emma worked as a nurse in the Lamme Hospital and as a school nurse in Walsenburg schools. She went to work at J&L Electric in 1961 and retired in 1993. She took delight in gardening, and was scrupulous about updating friends and family with a Christmas newsletter that noted, without fail that, “We still haven't won the Lotto.” Nothing in her hardscrabble youth in depression-era Colorado, attending to gravely wounded battle veterans in World War II or navigating the challenges of running a small business hardened her view of the world. She greeted life with joy, wonder, a sense of discovery and open affection she has passed along to generations of her family. Emma liked to close notes to love ones with, “I love you more than there are stars in the sky, and then some,” or similar sentiment. Emma was preceded in death by her brothers Henry, Larry, Leo and Anthony; and her sisters Irene and Regina. She is survived by her sister MaryAnn Nardini and brother Virgil (Barbara) Stringari; children, Joseph (Barbara) Feiccabrino, Arleen Feiccabrino, Marla (Luke) Clarke; grandchildren Joseph Feiccabrino, Barbara George, Shawn Feiccabrino, and James Feiccabrino; Aaron Wagner, Nathan (Jennifer Vierthaler) Wagner and Rebecca (Adam) Garcia; Patrick Clarke and Antonina Clarke; great-grandchildren Cyndi George; Makenna Garcia, Emma Garcia and Avery Wagner; great-great-grandson Draven Morton; and numerous nieces and nephews. Rosary will be recited at Saturday, Sept. 28 at 10 a.m., followed by Mass at St. Mary Catholic Church. A reception will follow at the Walsenburg Golf Course. Boies-Ortega is in charge of arrangements. Donations are suggested to Sangre de Cristo Hospice and Palliative Care, 1207 Pueblo Blvd., Pueblo, CO 81005 or Sister Sr. Carol Tlach, Senior Outreach, P.O. Box 86, Walsenburg, CO 81089.

Fellis, George
George Fellis - 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.

My father was going toward the barn when he was picked up by the terrific gale and thrown a distance of 10 yards. In falling he struck his head against the frame of a breaking plow. When picked up he was unconscious and died soon after from concussion of the brain. My mother is prostrated by the shock of the storm as are also my sisters. Two of my brothers were on their way home from town on the storm overtook them. They escaped by crawling into an irrigating ditch beside the road the tornado overturned the wagon and horses; one of the animals being seriously hurt. The tornado lasted about 10 minutes and was followed by a heavy rainstorm. A great deal of damage was done to buildings in Sedgwick. My brothers estimated their crops were about 20% damaged."

Fenton, Daniel Clement
Daniel Clement Fenton – Pueblo Chieftain – December 6, 1918 – It Took 41 Days for Word of Son's Death to Reach Parents – D. C. Fenton, formerly stenographer of the First National Bank, this city, was killed in action during the famous Argonne forest battle, October 25. This information reached relatives here by telegram from the war dept., just forty-one days after the young man was killed. Just a few days ago members of the family sent him a Christmas box prepared with much care by his sisters and mother. When the telegram reached the city yesterday there had just been dropped in the post office a letter addressed to the young hero by one of his sisters, not knowing that her brother had died on the battlefield almost 6 weeks before. Surviving this young soldier are his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. M. J. Fenton, 308 Broadway; 2 sisters, the Misses Nellie and Loretta, at the family home; and 2 brothers, J. J. Fenton of 606 E. 8th St., and Edward, residing at Los Angeles. D. C. Fenton went into the service last May, and was sent at once to Camp Funston, soon thereafter being sent overseas. He belonged to Co. F of the 355th Infantry. The last letter received from him was written October 17 - just 8 days before he met his fate. In this letter he stated that he was writing while in a shell hole, and that the battle had been and was then terrific. Mr. Fenton was 28 years old, and a member of the Pueblo Council 557, Knights of Columbus. Pueblo Chieftain – January 1, 1919 – In Memoriam – Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God, in his inscrutable providence, to call to a higher realm our beloved brothers, Daniel Clement Fenton, John S. Shiller, and W. E. Beauvais, who laid down their lives on the battlefield of France, therefore it is Resolved, That every Knight of Columbus throughout the land feels a personal pride in the heroic sacrifice made by them so nobly and unselfishly, upon the altar of their country. They, in the bloom of youth, gallantly went forward to their death, that tyranny and oppression might not obtain a foothold in the land. They fought and died for principles most sacred to the human heart. Their homes and firesides have been made desolate that those of others might remain in peace and security. Such a sacrifice surely must merit the never ending gratitude of all future generations. The heroism of their death will be a consolation to their bereaved relatives, yet we fully realize the void that has come into their lives by the death of those so near and dear to them. We pray that our Divine Savior who said, "Greater love than this, no man hath, than to lay down his life for his friend," will reward them according to the sacrifice they have made. Resolved, that an annual solemn Requiem high mass be sung for them, the first of which will be Thursday, January 2, at 9 o'clock at St. Patrick's Church; and be it further result Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be sent to the bereaved relatives, one spread upon the minutes of the Council, and one sent to the local press. Joseph P. Gillen, John McDonald, C. Hill. Ducey, Committee.

Pueblo Chieftain – November 24, 1918 – The Death of a Beloved Woman – There are a few persons who possess the rare characteristic of reflecting the influence of their own soul strength in major so great that their absence seems and unbelievable thing. The death of Mrs. Flossie Eldridge Fisher, which occurred in Albuquerque, New Mexico, upon November 16, 1918, brought a keen realization of personal loss and sorrow to a large number of local people as well as to intimate friends of the family. Possessed of a remarkably beautiful character and joyous disposition, her life as a daughter, wife, mother, and friend will always leave its imprint upon those who have known her. Mrs. Fisher was born in 1894 Pulaski Ill., and came to Pueblo in October, 1906. She was educated in the Pueblo public schools and was married upon 17 June, 1911, to T. C. Fisher of this city. Mrs. Fisher was the mother of 3 children, Theodore Clinton, age 6 years; Flossie Marion, age 4 years, and Clyde Eldridge, a baby who died a few days previous to the death of the beloved young mother. For several years Mrs. Fisher has been a sufferer from asthma. Hoping to benefit her health, a comfortable home was built last year in Beulah. For a time the healing balm of that spruce pine scented atmosphere brought her a measure of relief, but a few months ago Mr. Fisher took his family and went in search of a spot wherein to locate for the mother's benefit. They visited throughout the western states, stopping at Pasadena, Needles, San Pedro, Los Angeles, Barstow, San Bernardino, Santa Fe and other cities and at last decided to return to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and to make a home at that place. Upon arrival at Albuquerque the entire family was stricken with Spanish influenza. The infant, Clyde Eldridge, was born at St. Joseph's Hospital in that city, and in a few days Mrs. Fisher died, the Spanish influenza being the direct cause of her death. During the enjoyable trip which they had just completed, Mrs. Fisher had been especially impressed by the loveliness and abundance of the flowers of Calif. and by the miracle of petrified forests in Arizona. Mrs. Fisher was a Christian and believed firmly in the absolute guardianship of an all wise God. She was the daughter of Mrs. Cora Hillman of this city, and the sister of Suzy R., Gertrude M., Frederick M., and Nealie E. Hillman. Last Thursday afternoon the body of the young wife and mother was tenderly laid to rest in Mountain View Cemetery, beneath a blanket of flowers which expressed in part the high esteem of those who had known her. A gentle brave spirit such as her's was, is a lasting inspiration to others. T. C. Fisher has been employed for years as a locomotive engineer for the Colo. and Wyo. Railroad in the C. F. & I. plant in Pueblo. He will re-establish a home here at once. Mrs. Cora Hillman will care for the children.

Flutcher, William Wallace
William Wallace Flutcher - Pueblo Chieftain - December 4, 2012 - William Wallace Flutcher, 70, known as Wally, passed away on Friday, Nov. 30, 2012, at the San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center in Alamosa, Colo. He was born on May 10, 1942, in Pueblo, Colo., and was a proud graduate of Pueblo's Centennial High School, Class of 1960. As a young man, he served actively in the Colorado National Guard and was a lifetime member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. He married his wife, Sylvia, on Dec. 18, 1971, in Fort Collins, Colo. Wally started his career in center pivot irrigation at Enesco Corp. in Colorado Springs. He later spent several years with Lockwood, which led him to reside in Dalhart, Texas, for a short period of time, and eventually inspired a move to the San Luis Valley in 1976, where he managed the Monte Vista Lockwood branch. In 1980, he formed his own small business, Alpine Irrigation, which cemented his family's longtime residence in Monte Vista. Flight always fascinated Wally, even at a very young age. This passion for flying inspired many of his hobbies, which included single-engine recreational flying, radio-controlled airplane flight and raising and racing homing pigeons. He also enjoyed the outdoors, fishing and working in his yard. Time spent in his yard and on his deck resulted in many friendly conversations and good times with his friends and neighbors, whom he considered extended family. The tight bonds made with many community members were a direct result of Wally's outgoing nature. Wally connected with all those who met him, and he will be greatly missed by many who knew him casually, as well as those who knew him well. Wally was a loving and well-respected family man and a lifetime Episcopalian. His humor, generosity and general good nature were evident in his 40 years as an exceptional husband and 36 years as an exemplary father. He was preceded in death by his father, Howard Davis Flutcher; and his mother, Lizabeth Wallace Flutcher McCorkle. He is survived by his wife, Sylvia Stuart Flutcher; daughter, Kyla Flutcher Kiburis (Scott); son, Seth Wallace Flutcher (Rachel); and grandsons, Jackson Stuart (11) and William Scott (8) Kiburis. He also is survived by sister, Lynne Vetta (Tony); nephew, Andrew Fox; niece, Stacy Richards; and grandnephew, Andy Fox. A service celebrating Wally's life is planned for 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012, at the Monte Vista United Methodist Church. The church is located at 215 Washington St. in Monte Vista. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either the Monte Vista Community Ambulance Service or the Wild Animal Sanctuary (Keensburg, Colo.) in Wally's name.

French, Clifford H.
Clifford H. French - Rocky Mountain News - October 25, 1891 - In the Arkansas - The Body of Clifford H. French Found Floating in the Waters of the River - He Disappeared About Two Weeks Ago, But Was Supposed to be in Rico - A Prominent Witness in the Gitchell Case, It is Thought Likely That He Was Thrown In - Pueblo, Colo., Oct. 24 - The bloated and disfigured form of a man was found in the Arkansas river this morning at 10 o'clock near the Pueblo smelter. The coroner and the dead wagon were at once sent for and the remains were soon at the morgue, where they were identified as those of Clifford H. French, a young man about 23 years of age, well known about town. French was one of the most important witnesses in the late Gitchell murder trial. He was a porter in the shop of Gitchell & Rhodes when the shooting took place. Missing For Two Weeks - The last seen of him was two weeks ago Tuesday. He had been drinking heavily and had been walking with his brother-in-law, Charles Hill. He stopped at the end of the Union avenue bridge while Hill went into a bakery for a loaf of bread. When he came back Clifford had disappeared. As he had been intending going to Rico to work nothing was thought of the matter. He either had fallen over the embankment into the water and was too much under the influence of liquor to save himself, or his enemies had enticed him along the levee, slugged him and pushed him into the river. He was the son of Rev. R. French of Harlem, Ohio, a most respectable gentleman.

If anybody knows anything we encourage them to call us," said Charlene Graham, chief of the Pueblo County Sheriff Office's law enforcement bureau. Graham said they had not seen evidence of a forced entry nor had they made an arrest. The incident happened before 7 p.m. at a mobile home at Oakwood Estates, the former Meadowbrook Mobile Home Park, at 33550 East Colorado 96. The Frenches were discovered by John French Sr., who lives at the home and who called 911 after he came home from work about 7 p.m. Desirea's cause of death was not released late Sunday, but Graham said "it's not natural." The child was found dead in the living room and her father was found shot in a bedroom. Graham said French Jr. was conscious when he was taken to the hospital and he was undergoing surgery. Graham said the girl's mother lives in Kansas. A couple who lives in the mobile home park said they often saw the family outside. "They were real quiet. The girl was always out playing," said a woman who didn't want to be identified. "I always saw (French) outside smoking cigarettes and working on his cars," the woman's boyfriend said. Through the home's windows, a television was seen left on and a full drinking pitcher was on a table. Bicycles were parked behind the mobile home. Investigators late Sunday were in the process of taking photos of the home's exterior. A fire truck illuminated the yard so detectives, one with a metal detector, looked for possible evidence. Anyone with information about the case are asked to call the sheriff's office at 583-6125, or Crime Stoppers, 542-7867, where tips can be made anonymously and may be eligible for cash awards. Pueblo Chieftain - April 12, 2011 - Officials await tests in homicides - A crisis team assisted at the school of an 8-year-old victim. Pueblo County law enforcement officers are waiting for the results of two autopsies in two separate homicide cases, both of which may be released today. Pueblo County sheriff's deputies initially said 8-year-old Desirea French was found shot Sunday in her home in the Meadowbrook Mobile Home Community. But late Monday, Deputy Laurie Kilpatrick, the sheriff's public information officer, backed off those reports, saying that the office was awaiting the results of French's autopsy to confirm the cause of death. The autopsy is scheduled for today. French's father, John French, 32, was found in the home with a gunshot wound to the head and he remains at Parkview Medical Center, Kilpatrick said. Investigators say they have a person of interest, but would not comment any further. Desirea French was a student at Avondale Elementary School and District 70 sent a crisis response team to the school Monday to work with students and teachers upset by the shocking news, according to Greg Keasling, Pueblo County School District 70 director of student services. Counselors went to each classroom and spoke to students about the death. Students who broke down were placed in smaller groups for counselors to speak with them and work through their emotions. "The first two hours were solid intervention," Keasling said. In addition, he said a letter was sent to students' homes with information about the death and about signs of grief parents can look for in their own children. Kilpatrick said all of French's family have been notified and they were in communication with the girl's mother in Kansas. In the other weekend homicide, Pueblo police Sgt. Eric Bravo said the autopsy of a man suspected of driving off a cliff near the Royal Gorge after killing his girlfriend is complete. The Fremont County coroner, however, could not be reached for results of the examination of Brian John Wiersema, 37, who is suspected of killing Roseanna Vigil, 42, in their Belmont home early Sunday morning. Bravo said his office is waiting for the results of Vigil's autopsy, which is scheduled for today, as part of the continuing police department investigation. Staff reporter Gayle Perez contributed to this report. Pueblo Chieftain - April 13, 2011 - Autopsies confirm two victims shot to death - Eight-year-old Desirea French was shot in the head as originally reported. Autopsies of two shooting victims were completed Tuesday while both homicide investigations continue, law enforcement officials said Tuesday. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said 8-year-old Desirea French was killed by a single gunshot wound to the head, confirming earlier reports from Pueblo County Sheriff's Office officials. The girl and her father, 32-year-old John French Jr., who is hospitalized with a head wound, were found Sunday in their home at the Meadowbrook Mobile Home Community, 33550 E. Colorado 96. French is being treated at Parkview Medical Center. Charlene Graham, chief of the sheriff's office law enforcement bureau, said the case remains under investigation. “We're continuing the investigation at the crime scene and interviewing anybody who knew these folks,” Graham said. Asked if the father was a suspect, Graham said, “At this point, we're not saying that.” She did say that French was “doing OK.” In another shooting over the weekend, Kramer confirmed that Roseanna Vigil, 42, died from multiple gunshot wounds to the head, torso and abdomen. Pueblo Police Sgt. Eric Bravo said that investigation also is continuing. Bravo said investigators are interviewing people who knew Vigil and Brian John Wiersema, 37, who died after reportedly driving his car over a cliff in Fremont County. Bravo said police are not ready to close the case, but Wiersema is believed to have shot Vigil following an argument and then committed suicide. “Everything is pointing to that,” Bravo said. Bravo also said that Wiersema's 2011 Chevrolet Camaro was recovered from a ravine near the Royal Gorge and was being searched. Bravo said he had not received autopsy results on Wiersema from Fremont County. Bravo also said that a weapon, which police believe was used in Vigil's death, was recovered at the woman's Belmont home, but tests are being conducted. Pueblo Chieftain - April 14, 2011 - Slain girl's dad named as 'person of interest' - In a second weekend homicide, police continue to interview family members. The father of an 8-year-old girl found shot to death in a mobile home Sunday was identified Wednesday as a person of interest in the case, Sheriff Kirk Taylor said. Desirea French died from a gunshot to the head in her home. Her father, John French Jr., 32, was found in the home with a gunshot wound to the head and he survived and is being treated at Parkview Medical Center. The past couple of days the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office said it had a person of interest in the case but declined to identify him. On Wednesday, Taylor said that person is Desirea's father. More details of the shooting are expected to be released this morning at a press conference. "It should be crystal clear (today)," Taylor said. "It's a very difficult case and a very complex case because of the amount of evidence. It was a horrific crime scene. It's emotionally draining on the detectives and command staff who were out there." In a separate case where a boyfriend reportedly killed his girlfriend and then committed suicide by driving into the Royal Gorge, police detectives said their continuing to interview family members. "We have several more interviews to do. I hope to be finished by the end of next week and send the case to the (district attorney's) office for their review," Sgt. Eric Bravo of the Pueblo Police Department said. John Wiersema, 37 reportedly shot and killed his girlfriend, Roseanna Vigil, 42, in her home last weekend. Wiersema then reportedly committed suicide by driving his new car into the Fremont County gorge. Pueblo Chieftain - April 14, 2011 - Father arrested in daughter's death - John Wesley French Jr., has been arrested for the alleged shooting death of his 8-year-old daughter, Sheriff Kirk Taylor announced this morning at a press conference. "Clearly, this is a difficult case to grasp . . . All these facts indicate John French Jr. should be charged with murder," Taylor said. French Jr. is suspected of shooting his daughter, Desirea French, in the head and then turning the gun on himself. According to an affidavit, French tried shooting himself but survived. He continues to recover at Parkview Medical Center, where he has been under guard since the Sunday incident. Why the father reportedly killed her daughter is not known, Taylor said, but "we will work diligently to know why." Taylor said French Jr., who was conscious and spoke with deputies at the hospital, repeatedly said he and his daughter were the only ones in their mobile home at the time and he had tried killing himself. "There were statements made that were consistent with what you'd call admission," Taylor said. An affidavit said French Jr. had felt depressed and mentioned battling prior drug use. He said he had quit smoking marijuana a few days before the shooting. Taylor said neither drugs nor alcohol were recovered at the home, but authorities are awaiting toxicology results for French Jr. Taylor said the investigation has been emotionally draining on investigators and School District 70, where Desirea was enrolled at Avondale Elementary. "This is one of the most difficult cases to attend to. It's nothing you ever want to see as a human or in law enforcement," Taylor said. Pueblo Chieftain - April 16, 2011 - Desirea Marie French, 8, went to collect rocks in heaven on April 10, 2011.

The family would like to express our appreciation for all the support so generously offered. In lieu of flowers or food memorial donations may be made in Desi's name to Avondale Elementary School through the funeral home. Funeral service, 1 p.m., Saturday, April 16, 2011, George McCarthy Historic Chapel. Under the direction of George McCarty Funeral Home. Pueblo Chieftain - May 11, 2011 - A Pueblo County man charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing his 8-year-old daughter made a brief appearance in court Tuesday. District Judge Jill Mattoon granted most of the motions filed by Public Defenders Albert Singleton and Suzanne Reynolds on behalf of John French Jr. Most of the motions were procedural, dealing with evidence disclosure and the protection of French's rights. Mattoon also approved a motion limiting pretrial publicity. The gag order prohibits attorneys, law enforcement and court personnel from talking to the media about the case. A final motion will be debated at a hearing in June. In that motion, French's attorneys are asking that an expert be present during the examination and testing of any evidence. Deputy District Attorney Stephen Talbot said he wanted to file a written argument with the court opposing the motion. French, 32, was arrested April 14 after his father found Desirea French dead from a gunshot wound to the head and French wounded in another bedroom in their home in the Oakwood Estates mobile home park. French remains in Pueblo County jail in lieu of $1 million bail. Pueblo Chieftain - August 25, 2011 - Father may have moved daughter's body, deputies in murder case say - A Pueblo County sheriff's detective told a district court judge Wednesday that some evidence suggested there may have been a struggle prior to the shooting death of 8-year-old Desirea French. Pueblo County sheriff's Sgt. David Clements told District Judge Jill Mattoon that there was bruising on French's face and that hairs similar to French's were removed from a wound to the hand of her father John Wesley French Jr. Clements also said French may have picked up his daughter Desirea's body and moved her after she was killed on April 10. Clements told the court that he won't be sure until more than 80 swabs of blood are tested for DNA, but the extensive bloodstains suggested there was some kind of movement. "If you take into account all of the bloodstains, either Mr. French bled a lot or he picked her up and moved around the house," Clements said during a preliminary hearing. Public Defender Suzanne Reynolds noted that Clements' theory was only that and there could be any number of explanations for the bloodstains. "It's not just black-and-white," she said. French, 33, is facing counts of first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death, but the decision on whether he will be tried on those counts won't be made until next month. The lawyers were unable to finish French's preliminary hearing on Wednesday, but the testimony from detectives and deputies who first responded to the trailer home in Oakwood Estates suggested that French shot his daughter Desirea and then turned the gun on himself. Deputy Russell Wiley told the court he was first to arrive at the trailer and met with French's father, John French Sr., who called 911 when he came home from work and discovered the scene. Wiley said he found French Jr. face-down on his bed and that at one point French muttered that he "didn't want to be here anymore." Deputy Melissa Rohrich told the court she was ordered to follow French to the hospital and observe his treatment and "listen for any critical statements" he might make. Rohrich told the court that at one point, French told nurses his daughter was in the home. ''Then he got teary eyed, choked up and said, 'I can't believe I did that to her,' '' Rohrich said. Clements told the court he was called in to help process the scene. He said the girl was found in the middle of the home's living room and there were numerous bloodstains of all types throughout the room. There was blood found in the trailer's kitchen and in the bedrooms of French and his father. A .38-caliber revolver belonging to John French Sr. was found tucked between the mattress and the box springs of French Sr.'s bed. The gun had six spent casings and there was blood on it. Clements also said detectives found six bullet holes in the trailer. Clements also told the court he attended the autopsy of Desirea French and said the pathologist determined the bullet entered Desirea's head on the left side and exited through the right side. There was evidence of bruising and singed hairs to suggest the wound was from close range. Pueblo Chieftain - September 9, 2011 - Murder case to go forward, judge rules - A Pueblo district judge has ruled there is sufficient evidence to try a Pueblo man for killing his 8-year-old daughter. John Wesley French, 33, is charged with first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death for the April 10 shooting of his daughter Desirea French. Public Defender Suzanne Reynolds argued that her client should be bound over for trial on second-degree murder, because prosecutors had failed to prove French acted with deliberation when his daughter was killed. Detectives were called to the French's trailer in the Oakwood Estates trailer park after French's father came home from work and discovered his granddaughter's body in the living room of the home and his son laying on a bed with two head wounds. Detectives with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office told the court that they found six bullet holes in the trailer. Reynolds said that the bullet holes made it appear that the shooting was random rather than premeditated and that by all accounts, French was considered a good and doting father by everyone who knew him. But District Judge Jill Mattoon ruled that there was evidence to suggest Desirea French was killed by a gunshot from close range. Detectives told the court that John French had a wound to his right hand doctors believed was caused by a bullet. Doctors also told detectives they removed long strands of brown hair from the wound and there was a burn pattern on the side of the girl's head, allegedly from the gunshot. Mattoon said that was enough to suggest both intent and deliberation. Detective JC Williams told the court Thursday that he conducted a number of interviews with French, who said he never could remember clearly what happened. French knew he shot himself twice in the head and knew something bad happened to his daughter, but never said he remembered shooting her. Williams told the court French did suggest it couldn't have been anybody else since they were the only ones in the home that day. Under cross-examination by Public Defender Albert Singleton, Williams confirmed that French said he was diagnosed with depression and bipolar disorder, but wasn't on any medication for the illnesses. French will be back in court in November. Pueblo Chieftain - March 9, 2012 - Defense wants suspect's statements suppressed - Lawyers for murder suspect John Wesley French are trying to disqualify statements French made to Pueblo County sheriff's detectives the day he allegedly shot and killed his 8-year-old daughter. Deputy reports said French made a number of statements to deputies while he was being prepared for surgery after attempting suicide April 10. Deputies were called to the home in the Oakwood Estates (formerly Meadowbrook) trailer park, 33550 Colorado 96 East, after French's father found Desirea French dead on the living room floor and his son John French Jr. face down in his bed, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head. French, 33, is facing charges of first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death. French told detectives he tried to kill himself that morning using his father's handgun. He said the attempt came in the morning and that his daughter was in the home's living room at the time. Deputy Melissa Rohrich told the court Wednesday that French said, "I can't believe I did that to her." But attorneys were trying to settle the question of whether French was technically in custody at the time of his statements and whether he was properly advised of his Miranda rights and waived them. Deputy District Attorney Karl Kuenhold told the court he was prepared to argue that French was never in custody when he volunteered the statements recorded by officers. But under questioning by Public Defender Suzanne Reynolds, deputies said when they first arrived they cuffed French and left him facedown on his bed, despite obvious head wounds and a lack of response to questioning. While officers weren't in the ambulance when French was transported to Parkview Medical Center, Rohrich did follow the ambulance and she and another deputy were allowed in the emergency room as doctors prepared French for surgery. Rohrich also confirmed for Reynolds that at some point that night a deputy asked if French had been read his Miranda rights and that deputies were told he had "invoked" his rights, yet questions kept coming. Rohrich also collected French's clothes once they were removed and Lt. Todd Perry collected samples from his hands and face for gunshot residue. Perry testified that he and Detective J.C. Williams interviewed French the next day and that during that conversation, French was given his Miranda rights and he waived them. Perry said it also was during that conversation when French, in response to a question about who shot his daughter said, "I had to have. I was the only one there." The hearing was not finished Wednesday and was continued to May. Pueblo Chieftain - May 18, 2012 - Dad pleads not guilty in daughter's death - John Wesley French told Pueblo County sheriff's detectives that he had to have shot and killed his 9-year-old daughter last year because nobody else was in the house with him. Whether a jury will hear that statement and other incriminating remarks depends on a ruling from Pueblo District Court Judge Jill Mattoon, which won't come for at least another two months. Pueblo Chieftain - July 7, 2012 - Judge allows jury to study evidence - A Pueblo district judge will allow a jury to hear results from gunshot residue tests and see photographs taken of murder suspect John Wesley French while he was being prepared for brain surgery. District Judge Jill Mattoon agreed with prosecutors that Pueblo County Sheriff's detectives were acting to preserve evidence when they took the gunshot residue samples from French's hands and also took photographs of the injuries to his hands. Public Defender Suzanne Reynolds argued that detectives needed to secure a warrant to take the evidence and violated French's rights to privacy and protections against illegal searches. But Deputy District Attorney Karl Kuenhold argued that detectives needed to act quickly or the possible evidence on French's hands, including his injuries, could have been altered or destroyed. French, 33, is accused of killing his 9-year-old daughter Desirea on April 10, 2011, and then trying to kill himself. He is charged with first-degree murder. Mattoon will rule on a final suppression motion in October. In that request, Reynolds has argued that statements that French made to police are inadmissible at trial because he did not make a voluntary and intelligent waiver of his right to silence and once he invoked his Miranda rights, detectives continued to question him about the shooting. Pueblo Chieftain - October 6, 2012 - Murder case to go forward - Dad's statements admissible in daughter's death, judge rules - A Pueblo district judge has ruled that statements made by a man to Pueblo County s sheriff's detectives after his daughter was found shot to death in their trailer home are admissible in court. On Tuesday, District Judge Jill Mattoon ruled that John Wesley French, 34, was not in custody during his first interview with detectives and could have ended the conversation, even though he was confined to a hospital. In subsequent interviews with officers, Mattoon found that French was properly advised of his Miranda rights and properly waived them when he spoke with detectives. French is charged with first-degree murder and is accused of shooting and killing his 9-year-old daughter Desirea on April 10, 2011, then turning the gun on himself. Detectives found the girl in the living room of the trailer home and French face-down on a bed in a bedroom with wounds to the back of his head.

Fricke, Frederick A.
Fred Fricke - Pueblo Chieftain - April 16, 1917 - Smithy Who Took Own Life Was Children's Favorite - Fred Fricke, aged blacksmith who committed suicide with a shotgun Sunday at his home, 618 East Fourth Street, will be missed by the children residing in the neighborhood, who were extremely fond of the old man.

Frye, Robert
Robert Frye - Pueblo Chieftain - July 17, 2012 - Fatality reported in Pueblo West high-speed chase - A high speed chase involving a motorcyclist apparently has ended with scanner reports of a fatality. Pueblo law enforcement officials had shut down U.S. 50 in Pueblo West while they pursued the motorcyclist, who was clocked at driving 130 miles per hour on Interstate 25. Colorado State Patrol began chasing the motorcyclist at about 9:25 a.m. after he was clocked driving southbound at a high rate of speed. The motorcyclist turned onto Purcell Boulevard and was winding through Pueblo West, headed toward the intersection of U.S. 50 and McCulloch Boulevard. Scanner traffic said there was a patrol aircraft following the cyclist. The chase apparently ended in the accident at Aspen Ski Way and Industrial Boulevard. Pueblo Wet Metropolitan District Manager Jack Johnston told police that Fire Chief Brian Caserta was on scene and that the accident involved a metro district employee and vehicle, but the employee was not the one killed in the wreck. Pueblo Chieftain - July 17, 2012 - Pueblo West motorcyclist killed while trying to elude authorities - A 31-year-old Pueblo West man was killed this morning when the 2008 Honda motorcycle he was driving crashed into a dump truck while trying to elude authorities in a high-speed chase. The man has not been identified pending notification of next of kin. The accident occurred as the motorcycle was attempting to pass a 1990 International dump truck, which was making a left turn from East McCulloch Boulevard to the Pueblo West Metro District, and struck the left side of the truck. The driver of the truck, a 55-year-old man who also has not been identified, was not injured in the crash. The pursuit began at 9:27 a.m. when Colorado State Patrol troopers were conducting an aircraft team operation in the north Pueblo area and the pilot of a patrol aircraft spotted the Honda traveling at a high rate of speed. The speed was estimated at 130 mph. The motorcycle, which reportedly had been stolen on Sunday in Colorado Springs, was northbound on Interstate 25 and initially failed to stop for troopers on the ground. The cycle traveled into the I-25 southbound lanes, then exited the highway at mile marker 108, sped on to north Purcell Boulevard and then west into Pueblo West. The pursuit and fatal crash continues to be investigated and has been turned over to the Pueblo County Critical Incident Team for review. Pueblo Chieftain - July 18, 2012 - Fatality - High-speed death - Motorcyclist killed while fleeing authorities - A 31-year-old Pueblo West man was killed Tuesday after he crashed a stolen motorcycle into a dump truck. Robert Frye was fleeing from Colorado State Patrol troopers on a 2008 Honda motorcycle when the accident happened. Frye was attempting to pass a 1990 International dump truck, which was making a left turn from East McCulloch Boulevard to the Pueblo West Metropolitan District's Public Works building, when the motorcycle struck the truck's left side. The crash caused a small grass fire that quickly was doused, the patrol said. The patrol said the motorcycle was reported stolen on Sunday in Colorado Springs. Frye died at the scene. Trooper Nate Reid said patrol troopers were about a mile behind Frye when he crashed. “We were not pursuing him,” Reid said. The incident began at 9:27 a.m. when a Colorado State Patrol aircraft clocked Frye speeding northbound on Interstate 25 near mile marker 114 north of Pueblo. The patrol did not say how fast Frye was going, but scanner traffic said the speed the motorcycle was traveling was estimated at 130 mph. The patrol said the rider failed to yield to troopers on the ground and crossed over the I-25 median into the southbound lanes and headed south. The motorcycle exited I-25 at mile marker 108, which is North Purcell Boulevard, and traveled into Pueblo West. It eventually wound up on East McCulloch Boulevard, where it crashed in front of the public works building at 280 E. McCulloch Blvd. The driver of the dump truck, who has not been identified, was a 55year-old Pueblo man. He was not injured in the crash. East McCulloch Boulevard was closed at Industrial Boulevard near the Pueblo West Walmart. U.S. 50 also was briefly closed prior to the crash. An aerial view of the crash showed skid marks across the northbound lane of East McCulloch Boulevard in front of the public works building. The motorcycle's frame, including its engine, came to rest south of the road in a blackened patch of grass near a fence. The front wheel and handlebars were approximately 35 feet away in the driveway leading up to the works building. The dump truck was parked in the driveway as investigators collected measurements. The pursuit and fatal crash are being investigated by the Pueblo County Critical Incident Team. Pueblo Chieftain - July 18, 2012 - Investigation - Patrol says it wasn't pursuing motorcyclist - Critical Incident Team will look into incident The death of a motorcyclist Tuesday, who reportedly was fleeing from the Colorado State Patrol, was the second fatal accident in Pueblo West involving the patrol in more than a month. On May 28, two teenagers were killed and three others injured in a single-vehicle, rollover crash after they, too, reportedly were fleeing from troopers in a stolen vehicle. That crash happened on Wild Horse Road. On Tuesday, Robert Frye, 31, reportedly fled from troopers on a stolen motorcycle and died after crashing into a dump truck on East McCulloch Boulevard. The 10th Judicial District's Critical Incident Team was activated to investigate both cases. The team is a group of investigators from every law enforcement agency in Pueblo County designed to bring fresh eyes to serious incidents involving officers. District Attorney Bill Thiebaut said he has yet to receive the CIT's report from the May crash. Since the CIT's inception in 2006, Thiebaut said he's reviewed nine cases, two in which he charged officers. Trooper Nate Reid said the patrol was not pursuing Frye, who according to radio traffic routinely monitored by The Pueblo Chieftain was clocked traveling on Interstate 25 north of Pueblo at speeds estimated at 130 mph. Frye was clocked by a patrol aircraft. “This wasn't a chase. We observed it from the air because we had an airplane in the area. We weren't anywhere near this guy when he crashed,” Reid said. Frye didn't stop for troopers on the ground and sped into Pueblo West on North Purcell Boulevard. While Reid maintained that troopers weren't chasing Frye, they actively were searching for him. Reid said the patrol aircraft had an aerial view of Frye and that officers were trying to intercept him farther in Pueblo West. “We didn't have a trooper within a mile of this guy when he crashed,” Reid said. “We were attempting to get police vehicles in front of him.” Reid said the patrol uses three airplanes to monitor traffic speeds a few times a week. “They're responsible for other things, not just speed enforcement. They're used multiple times a week across the state. They move them all over the place,” Reid said.

Pressy, in Charge of Identification – Pueblo, June 7 – Forty-two bodies of flood victims were in the morgues of the city tonight. Five additional bodies were recovered and one of the unidentified bodies was identified… The official list of dead follows: … John Fujaros, Pueblo… None of the 31 (?) recovered bodies between Pueblo and Boone reported last night by the rangers are included in this list.

Estimates of the deaths last night included 10 bodies reported to have been recovered on the St. Charles Mesa and a number of bodies not yet recovered but declared by searching parties to have been located under water and debris which made their removal impossible. Ray McCarthy, acting coroner, announced today that no inquests would be held over the bodies of the flood victims. "The flood was an act of God. No inquest is needed to determine that," he said. Colorado Springs Gazette – June 11, 1921 – Pueblo Will Appeal for Permanent Flood Relief - … Pueblo, June 10 – When three of the bodies found today were discovered three more tragedies were revealed.

Full, Archibald C.
A. C. Full – Pueblo Chieftain – August 31, 1919 – Steelworker Slays Widow and Kills Himself When Woman Spurns His Love – Angered because his attentions had been rejected, A. C. Full, a steelworker, shot and killed Mrs. Gerda E. Betts, a widow, age 34, at her home, 105 Veta Ave., at 1 o'clock this morning and then fatally wounded himself. He was hastened to St. Mary's Hospital where he died shortly afterwards. Full gained entrance to the house by a ladder placed against the front porch. He climbed this and taking off a screen entered a front bedroom window. He slipped down the stairs and into the kitchen. It is said that Harry Angle a prominent contractor residing at Goff apartments was standing on the front porch of the Betts' home waiting for a taxi when the shooting took place. Mrs. Betts was shot as she passed from the dining room into the kitchen. Full fired four shots at her. One shot pierced her hand and the others pierced her head. Full then turned the gun on himself and fired one shot into his own head. Apparently Mrs. Betts, the dangerously wounded, attempted to call the police station. The receiver of the telephone was down and it was covered with blood. She was lying directly under it, when found by the neighbors and the police. D. W. Klein, residing at 107 Veta Ave., directly next door was awakened by the shots. He hurried to the Betts' home and found Mrs. Betts and Full both apparently dead. He hurriedly called the police station and a squad of officers under the direction of Night Capt. Sinclair hurried to the scene in the patrol. Finding that Full was not dead, the officers placed him in the patrol wagon and rushed him to St. Mary's Hospital where he died shortly afterwards. Mrs. Betts had met Angle down town at a theater. Angle accompanied her home in her own automobile and he had just called a taxi cab to take him home. It is understood that Full had borrowed the ladder he used from Klein, next door, saying that he wanted to paint Mrs. Betts' home. Mrs. Betts' two daughters, Lurlei, age 11 years, and Andrea, age 10, were asleep in a room upstairs when the shooting took place. One of the girls stated that Full had been paying marked attention to her mother but that his attentions had been rejected time and time again. Pueblo Chieftain – September 1, 1919 – The body of A. C. Full is being cared for by the McCarthy Undertaking Co. awaiting instructions from relatives. Pueblo Chieftain – September 4, 1919 – The funeral of Mr. A. C.

Fuller, Burt
Burt Fuller - Pueblo Chieftain - January 11, 1917 - Workman is Blown to Atoms - Burt Fuller, Expert at Handling Explosives, Terribly Mangled When He Investigates - Accident Occurs Near Pueblo - Burt Fuller, aged 38, a homesteader residing near Penrose, was blown to atoms at the White & Davis Ranch yesterday morning when a charge of dynamite over which he was working exploded. The head was blown from the shoulder, the hands and arms were badly mangled, a leg was blown off and a gaping hole was torn in the trunk. Fuller, who is an expert dynamite man, had been brought from his homestead to assist in the building of a reservoir at the ranch which is located near the City Park. With J. L. Norris, a laborer at the ranch, he had placed three charges of dynamite in the ground. He lighted two of the charges and Norris one, after which they hurried to a place of safety to await the explosion. One of the charges which had been prepared by Fuller, exploded, and after waiting several minutes for the others, Fuller ventured from his place of safety. He could see that the charge prepared by Norris was extinguished and he thought that the other charge prepared by himself was also out. Altho warned by the other workmen, he went to the holes and was peering over his own fuse, when the spark reached the dynamite and it discharged. The Davis & Vories Undertaking firm was called and the body removed to their parlors. Pieces of the body were found as far as 100 yards away. Fuller was widely known in the Penrose district. He came to Pueblo some time ago and took a house two miles from his work in order to have his family near the scene of his labors. The wife, who is frail and delicate, was not informed of the death of her husband until her parents had been summoned from Penrose. It is feared she may not stand the shock of the news. Pueblo Chieftain - January 12, 1917 - The remains of Burt R. Fuller, were forwarded by Davis & Vories to Florence, Colorado, yesterday noon. The funeral will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Methodist Church in Penrose.

Bob is survived by his wife of 68 years, Mary Frances; four children, Carol Lambert (Clarke) of Green Valley, Ariz., Christy Furman (John McGuire) of Pueblo, Colo., Robert Furman Jr. (Mary Hart) of Tacoma, Wash., and Hugh Patrick Furman of Boulder, Colo.; and four granddaughters, Chesney D'Avis (Greg) of Atlanta, Ga., Lindsey Dougherty of Berkeley, Calif., Sarah Furman of San Diego, Calif., and Katherine Furman of Sweden; and our beloved corgi, Bucky. Bob was born in Schenectady, N.Y., and graduated from Union College. In 1943, he graduated from Yale University School of Medicine and did his residency at Yale's New Haven Hospital and Vanderbilt University Hospital. He joined the Navy in 1945 and was assigned to the USS Yellowstone as the senior medical officer. During the Korean War, he was recalled to active duty and retired from service in 1957 as Navy commander. Bob was appointed the head of the Cardiovascular Section, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation in 1952 and spent the next 18 years researching arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. At the OMRF, Bob will best be remembered for his professionalism and his ability to build a team of very capable researchers. In 1970, the Furmans moved to Indianapolis, where Bob joined Eli Lilly as executive director of clinical research, and then later as vice president, corporate medical affairs. During Bob's medical career, he published over 175 articles in various medical journals. Bob was a member of many medical societies and associations too numerous to mention. After retiring in 1983, Bob and Mary moved first to Colorado Springs, and then later to Arizona — Scottsdale and then Green Valley. In his later years, Bob became proficient at wood working. His favorite activities were listening to classical music, attending Physician's Grand Rounds at UMC in Tucson with retired colleagues, reading the WSJ cover to cover and an evening cocktail. In Green Valley, Bob was active in the La Posada Forum, the La Posada Chorus, the retired physicians Journal Club, the Green Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, and Compassionate Choices — a cause he strongly supported as a physician. As advancing age began to take its toll, Bob's passion for medicine never failed to keep his memory sharp on all things medical- related. Bob will always be remembered for his cogent questions, his organ playing and his ability to recite all the verses of the “Cremation of Sam McGee” by heart. His professionalism and his insistence on excellence were a great inspiration to his children. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Futura, Jack
Jack Futura - 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.
