Simpson, in his letter refers to Gaddy's personality by saying, "During the eight months I have been associated with Gaddy I never knew a finer, cleaner, or more upright man. He had the goodwill of every man and officer in our detachment and they all join me in sympathy for you and his family."

Scores of persons were caught as the rushing torrents in the lead of the flood swept around Fourth Street and down Main.  Most of them escaped by climbing out the second stories of the buildings… The following information was obtained by the Chieftain representative as authentic at 3 p.m. Monday, afternoon of bodies in the morgues of the city:  At McCarthy-Browns morgue, eighth street between Main and Court: Martina Galban. Colorado Springs Gazette – June 8, 1921 – Forty-Two Bodies in Pueblo Morgues – Five Additional Today; Several Died of Natural Causes, Says J. W. 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: … Mrs. Martino Galban, Pueblo... None of the 31 (?) recovered bodies between Pueblo and Boone reported last night by the rangers are included in this list.

He joined the Navy just out of high school and served on a PT boat in the Pacific during World War II. His PT boat was sunk and Doug helped save the lives of some of his fellow sailors. Doug's war experiences changed him forever. He moved to Colorado and graduated from Pueblo Junior College, where he met the love of his life, Dorothy Speed. They married and started their family that grew to five children. He graduated from CU. He worked as a Professional Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America in Lamar and Denver. They settled in Wheat Ridge. Doug became an elementary school teacher in Adams County and earned his masters degree in history at UNC after many summers of classes. Doug enjoyed nature, being in the mountains and sharing the beauty of Colorado with his family on camping trips. Doug and Dorothy's life together was centered on their family until he retired, then their lives were filled with activism for social justice as a team. Doug and Dorothy walked with their nuclear disarmament friends from Arvada, Colo., to Rocky Flats to protest the production of atomic weapons. Eventually, Rocky Flats was shut down and turned into a “glowing hot spot” wildlife refuge. They attended many of the Nevada Test site protests, as well. He willingly crossed the line in civil disobedience to get arrested in their work to have a world without nuclear weapons. In 1986, Doug walked from the Colorado/Utah border to Washington, D.C., on The Great Peace March, with Dorothy being his support from home. They returned to Pueblo to care for Milton Speed (our Grandpa). For the last 19 years, he and Dorothy, with many others, organized Pueblo's Annual Peace Flotilla.

They volunteered with Veterans for Peace, Gandhi Peace Garden, Meals on Wheels, and their United Church of Christ's numerous state and local peace and justice committees. They received many awards for all their dedicated work. Doug is survived by one brother, Daniel A. Gale of Pueblo; four children and 11 grandchildren. He will long be remembered for his enthusiastic support for education, conservation, working for peace and justice, serving others, and advocating good stewardship of the earth. Doug and Dorothy strove together to create a beloved, inclusive community. For over a decade, Doug devotedly loved and cared for Dorothy as Alzheimer's enveloped her. This is his last legacy. He is beloved and will always be in our hearts. His memorial service is 3 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at First Congregational Church UCC, 228 W. Evans Ave., Pueblo, CO 81003.

Gallegos, Armando
Armando Gallegos - Huerfano World Journal - April 15, 2010 - Walsenburg cop shoots, kills man - Walsenburg - One person is dead following a police involved shooting this past weekend where authorities have alleged domestic violence as a cause in the incident. A press release from the Walsenburg Police Department stated that police officers were dispatched in response to a domestic violence call around 9:25 pm Sunday evening, April 4.  When officers arrived at the scene on Stacey Drive they observed several children attempting to exit the residence though a window at the front of the house. One officer went to assist the children while the second officer, Lyle Petkof, went to the back of the house. The officer at the back of the house is reported to have observed a male, later identified as 29 year old Armando Gallegos, with what appeared to be a knife, attacking a female.  The officer opened fire with his service weapon, striking Gallegos twice in the stomach. Officer Petkof had a clear line of sight through the window that looked in at the kitchen and dining area of the apartment.  It was dark outside and interior lights were on. “Armando had a deer horn pipe in his hand when he pushed me,” Darlene Anderson, Gallegos' girlfriend said in an interview with the Huerfano World-Journal. “I fell down from being pushed and Armando had turned and started to walk off when I heard a loud popping sound and Armando fell down between the couch and my bookshelf.” “I went over to him and he was on the floor and he was telling me he had been shot and was dying.” Anderson said police then further broke out the window and unlocked the back door and entered the house. “When they came in they were shouting at me to lay down and then they pulled me away from Armando and forced me to lay down on the floor.  The police put hand cuffs on me and dragged me out to the car and held me there for about 35 minutes.” According to reports officers began first aid on the male subject who was then taken to the Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center emergency room where he actually died and was resuscitated.  He was then flown, by helicopter, to Parkview Hospital in Pueblo where he was pronounced dead around 2:30 a.m., Monday, April 5. Gallegos and Anderson had been living together for the past seven years. There were children from previous relationships but the couple had no children from their current involvement with each other. “We had our disagreements and most of the time it involved a lot of yelling but Armando was basically a nonviolent person toward me and the kids.  If anyone was going to get violent and hit anyone it was usually me that hit Armando,” Anderson explained. Gallegos had just been released from parole, after serving time on an arson charge,  and gotten a job at the Walsenburg Lumber store in November 2009.  Then in January 2010 the couple moved into their apartment on Stacey Drive. “This Easter was our first holiday together as a family in our own place and both of us were excited about that,” Anderson said.  “Armando worked all day cooking the meat for the meal, he was so happy to help.” “We had been drinking, Bloody Mary's and beer and vodka shots most of the day and things were getting loud and lots of talk between friends.  Then Armando and one of his friends went out front and talked for a while.  I don't know what was said but it made Armando very mad and when he came back in he began yelling and screaming at me.” Gallegos had been diagnosed as bi-polar when he was a teenager and his moods could swing very fast.  “He was supposed to be on medication for that but between his bills and child support he couldn't afford the meds,” Anderson explained.  “It feels like everything has been taken away from me.” The Colorado Bureau of Investigation was called in to process the scene and conduct an investigation.  Petkof was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the CBI investigation.

Though he was never married, he also is survived by two daughters in heart, Christina Romero and Sophia Gutierrez. Fred also was affectionately known as "freeloader" or simply, "loader," nicknames he didn't particularly like, but they stuck like glue. He may have been called "freeloader," but he was everything but a freeloader. He gave far more than he received. He was a retired clerk from the U.S. Postal Service in Denver. During the Vietnam era, he served with the U.S. Navy. Fred grew up in Pueblo until he left to join the service. When he was discharged from the Navy, he returned to Pueblo briefly before moving to New York City where he worked in the World Trade Center with the Chase Manhattan Bank. Also while in the Big Apple, he worked as a mover and often said he could move a piano by himself. When he returned to Colorado, he settled in Denver and went to work as a postal clerk. Fred was known for his constant smile and generous heart. "He was our Santa Claus," one family member said after his passing. A good time to Fred was treating the children in his extended family to ice cream and school clothes. Fred had high praise for the medical staff at Parkview Medical Center and his family is grateful to the Sangre de Cristo Hospice for helping care for him in his last days. A celebration of his life will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Roselawn Chapel, 1706 Roselawn Road in Pueblo. Interment to follow. The family may be contacted at 1605 Oak Ave.

Garcia, Bertha
Bertha (Bersabe) Espinoza Garcia - Trinidad Times Independent - January 13, 2012 - Bertha was born in Trinidad at 1106 E. Ninth Street. She and her beloved husband were married April 24, 1940, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church and were married for fifty-six years until husband James's death in 1996. Bertha lived in her home, which is next door to her birth home, for seventy-one years where she raised two sons and a daughter. She is the ultimate mother who was totally involved with her children as she encouraged them throughout their school years to complete high school. She and her husband often said, “My children are going to college; they are not going to work in the coal mine.” While James worked in coal and hard rock mines for 45 years, the couple sent their children to Holy Trinity Catholic School, Trinidad State Junior College, Adams State College, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and other institutions of higher education. Bertha's children each have one or more college degrees. Bertha was highly involved in Las Animas County Democratic politics where she served as a committee woman and a Las Animas County representative to the Colorado convention. She was also involved and is still a member of the United Mine Workers of America. There was seldom a year where either she or James did not attend the yearly Ludlow Memorial Ceremony. A charter member of the Las Animas County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Bertha was instrumental in acquiring college scholarships for Trinidad and Las Animas County students and in raising funds for the erection of the Coal Miners' Memorial Statue in Trinidad's Corazon District. She sold at least fifty $1,000 miniature memorials to finance the beautiful historic memorial. In fact, her husband James is the miner with a pick accompanied by shovel holder Bob Tapia of Cokedale and coal-bearer Alfonso Sandoval of Valdez. Bertha had a formal ninth grade education; her husband had a formal 10th-grade education. She was often called Mom, Tia, Comadre and Vecina by many in the Trinidad area; she is truly a positive, fantastic role model for our entire community. Dios la bendiga, Mama! May you rest in peace as you ascend to your eternal reward with the Lord and your beloved husband, James, who, as he promised is sitting on a rock awaiting your heavenly arrival. The angels will welcome your beautiful voice into the heavenly choir where you will sing throughout eternity. Bertha is preceded in death by James, her husband of fifty-six years; her infant son, Jimmy; her grandparents, Atanacio and Maria Candelaria Garcia Lopez; her mother, Vera Lopez Espinoza Le Doux; her stepfather. Federico Le Doux; and her comadres, Helen Espinoza Williams and Lucille Gallegos.

The husband, Seddia Carranza, admits firing the shots that killed Emios Garcia, and seriously wounded Juan Ariandas, in a Mexican pool hall on S. Union Ave., Friday night. Garcia died yesterday morning at St. Mary's Hospital just after he had identified Carranza as the man who fired the fatal shot. The 3 men returned from Roselawn Cemetery where the Carranza child was buried Friday evening and repaired to the pool hall, where they engaged in a game of pool. An argument arose and Carranza drew his revolver and fired at both men. He then dashed through the door of the pool hall and went to his home. The injured men refused to tell who had shot them. Carranza went to his home and told his wife that he had shot the men. She baked him to give himself up to the police and upon his promise to do so she dispatched a friend to police headquarters and Detectives Baty and Grady were sent to his home for him. As the 3 walked away from the house the little woman stood in the doorway and waved her hand at her husband who was probably being taken away from her for life.

Frederick Victor Garcia - Pueblo Chieftain - April 16, 2014 - Frederick Victor Garcia. “Gone yet not forgotten, Although we are apart, Your spirit lives within me, Forever in my heart. Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.” - unknown. Frederick Victor Garcia, 54, of Pueblo, passed away Friday, April 11, 2014. He was born to Fredrick and Simone Garcia, Aug. 22, 1959, at Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland. Fred graduated high school from Rocky Mountain Rehab in 1977, where he competed in Special Olympics. Faced with life's toughest challenges early on, Fred's life inspired many. He was a dedicated employee at Pueblo Diversified Industries for 40 years, and wherever he went in Pueblo, he was greeted with friends. Fred brought smiles to many, much like the Disney characters he cherished so much. He gave his mother many wonderful memories of times spent at Disneyland and Disney World. Fred always remained a kid at heart. He loved building models, bowling and watching movies with friends and family. His father, a veteran of the Air Force, describes his son as a fighter. He said his only son was accepting of his mental challenges and took on life with courage, humor and love for others. Fred lost his battle with cancer, but leaves behind a beautiful legacy. He had the ability to bring people together through his smile and warmth. He had an unrestrained friendliness and offered a smile and a wave to strangers. That's exactly how he met Vince and Shirley Chifalo, two extraordinary caregivers who provided more than just a home for Fred these last four years. They provided him with unconditional love only a family gives. There were many people in Fred's life he would have wanted to thank. When Fred was 18, he entered Jordan Residential housing and met owner, Mike Jordan. Mike will forever remain a friend, near and dear to the family. For all the hearts he has touched throughout the years, the greatest way to remember Fred would be to carry on his legacy and give a smile and a wave to a complete stranger every now and again. Fred will be laid to rest this week. A viewing will be held from 10 a.m. to noon today, at Evergreen Funeral Home, 1830 E. Fountain Blvd., Colorado Springs.

Garcia, Jose A. (Judge)
Judge Jose A. Garcia – Pueblo Chieftain – August 28, 1918 – Held the Lid Down in San Luis Valley – Judge Jose A. Garcia, whose funeral at Antonito last week was one of the largest ever seen here, was a pupil in the public schools of Pueblo in 1869, and in the schools of Denver the next year. In 1873 at the age of 15 he was elected interpreter of the House of Representatives. In 1877 he was elected to the same position in the state Senate. In 1881 he was elected to represent Conejos and Costilla Counties in the lower house. In 1887 he was elected Sheriff of Conejos County and served in that capacity for 19 consecutive years by re-election. His reputation as a sheriff was known throughout the United States. His skill as a trailer of criminals baffled fiction. He would ride his horse at a gallop and trace a man's tracks in the dry earth. For many years it was an admitted impossibility for a criminal to escape from the San Luis Valley which has a mountain contour of more than 300 miles. With the .45-Colt, which he carried through his official career, his aim was infallible. Back volumes of the Ledger contain various accounts of his adventures with the hardest criminals of the country. He subdued heavy crime by official skill and held petty offenders under subjection by occasionally inflicting summary punishment upon a degenerate, which action he justified by saying that nothing was accomplished by hauling such an offender through court at an expense in jail where he would take life easy for the time and then returned to repeat the offense. While these acts were not always sustained by law, the undercurrent of public opinion seemed to have generally approved. During his career he killed two men for which he was exonerated by the courts. One of the cherished hopes of Sheriff Garcia's life was that he be succeeded by his oldest son, Alejandro (Alexander) who, to the bitter disappointment of the father, was drowned while attempting to cross a torrent in the Chama River several years ago. In 1912 he became County judge.

Please contact Florence Torres for details 680-8965.You can also visit www.newcomerdenver.com to view her obituary and leave a message for the family or even just to share a fond memory. A beautiful soul has been set free... Newcomer Funeral Home - April 23, 2013 - Marion Garcia continued on her spiritual journey on the eve of April 13, 2013 at her home in Denver, Colorado preceded by her husband Joe Claude Garcia and son Joseph Mark Garcia. She is survived by her son Donavan Abeyta, daughter Felicia Garcia, grandchildren as follows: Mico Abeyta, Monique Abeyta, Aylena Garcia, Alijah Mark Garcia and Kaden Martinez, in addition to her six living siblings. To put into words how much she meant to so many is an impossible task. She was an amazing woman that brought a smile to your face. The type of woman that carried herself with dignity, strength and class. She was an amazing mother and grandmother that instilled strong morals and values in her children and grandchildren. She had two son's Mark and Donavan. I, the writer am the daughter of Mark, whom departed for his own spiritual journey over 20 years ago. She raised me as her own since I was just a couple weeks old. She is my mom. She has 5 wonderful grandchildren (not including myself) and loved them all so very much. We were very blessed to have the privilege of spending the amount of time we were able to with her before she departed from this world. She began working with the Denver Public school system back in the mid 1980's. She started as a teacher's assistant then various other positions and through her demonstration of her excellent work ethic and skills came to find herself as a Community Liaison for DPS. She was such an asset to the community, always did her very best to take care of her families... and if your kid thought they were gonna skip school, there was sure to be a knock on your door from Mrs. Garcia! Later on in life she found herself working at a mortuary and of course up the hill in Central City, boy did she love going up the hill! Not to mention how lucky she was, she always knew just what machine to play... Central city will never be the same but hopefully she left some of that luck behind!? She was a jack of all trades and accepted any notation that she couldn't do something as a personal challenge to do it and do it well. As I stated before, she was an amazing woman that will be deeply missed. The void she leaves behind is profound but please family and friends find comfort in knowing she lives on in each and everyone of you because she touched your heart and soul. I know I will carry her with me for eternity. Till we meet again.... A celebration of life will take place on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 1-3pm at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 3300 W Nevada Place Denver, Co 80219. Please feel free to join us as we bid my mother adieu and wish her well on her spiritual journey... a beautiful soul has been set free.

Garcia was shot by the same parties who killed Bonifacio Vasquez on the spot where the attack was made. The 2 victims of the assassins had just come from a party in the village of Salt Creek, where the assailants had called and presumably had become offended because they were not invited to participate. When the victims of the tragedy and several relatives and friends were met on W. Northern Ave. they were asked if they wanted a drink, and being answered in the affirmative, they drew their revolvers saying "here's your drink," and began shooting. Garcia was a large, well-built Mexican about 40 years of age. The body is at McCarthy's.

Garcia, Ted
Ted Garcia - Pueblo Chieftain - May 23, 2009 - Annual memorial to honor Pueblo's homeless who died - Fifteen people, aged 37 to 86, will be remembered at observance - Most of them lived an isolated, lonely life. Some were addicted to drugs or alcohol, others had mental or other health issues. All of them had at one time experienced homelessness and for some, that lifestyle may have contributed to their cause of death. Regardless of how they lived their lives, those who interacted with the 15 homeless men and women who died in Pueblo during the past 12 months want to ensure that they are remembered in death. On Tuesday, friends and family of the 15 individuals are invited to remember their loved ones at the sixth annual Pueblo Homeless Memorial service. The annual service is set to begin at noon near the St. Francis of Assisi statue, located on the far northwestern edge of the riverwalk. "We want to make sure that all these people are remembered and recognized for who they were," said LaTanya Yarbrough, a case manager at Posada agency for the homeless and organizer of the memorial event. "Everybody deserves to be remembered and for some, this is the only way that family and friends can gain closure is by holding a service like this." As part of the event, Yarbrough said family and friends are invited to share their memories about those who have died this year. The Pueblo Veterans Ritual team also will offer a 21-gun salute in honor of the two homeless veterans - Daryl Holt and Thomas Reynolds - who died this year.

Gardner, David Bruce (Dr.)
Dr. David Bruce Gardner - Pueblo Chieftain - February 3, 2013 - Dr. David Bruce Gardner, husband, father and grandfather, veteran, professor, author, pilot and entrepreneur, has returned home. He was born on Dec. 7, 1924, the seventh son and youngest of 10 siblings born of the union of Joseph Angel Gardner and Martha Blunck Gardner, an East Mill Creek family in Salt Lake City, Utah. A member of “The Greatest Generation,” he served in World War II as navigator on a B-29 in the Army Air Corps. He was awarded the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with two Bronze Stars. While serving in the Philippines, he competed in track for the Army Olympics. In 1945, David Bruce married his high school sweetheart, Ila Mary Christensen, and was her soulmate and constant companion for nearly 68 years. After the war, he earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in psychology from the University of Utah, where he also represented the school in track. He earned his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1952 in educational psychology with an emphasis in guidance counseling and child development and family relations. Thus began an academic and professional journey that was to become his life's work. He taught at various institutions including Iowa State and the University of Denver, and retired from Colorado State University in Fort Collins as department chair in child development. He authored a child development book that was used as a college text and served as president of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) from 1974-1976. His love for children was reflected in all of his endeavors, from working with Native American children of the Hopi Nation and the national Head Start Program, to coordinating Western Colorado services for children with developmental disabilities, to championing the rights of the underprivileged within the CASA program. He touched the lives of local children, garnering the distinction of Pueblo's CASA Volunteer of the Year in 2001. Following retirement, he ventured into the business world, founding and operating several different companies including Child Development Systems, which among other services manufactured an original personalized children's book. He delighted in clever wordplay and was prolific with written word throughout his life, writing in all genres from poetry to professional and scholarly journal contributions. In recent years, he wrote columns and editorials as well as feature articles for various local publications including the Focus Feature Magazine from Montrose, the Canon City Daily Record, the Pueblo West View and the Empire magazine previously published by the Denver Post. He also contributed articles to 'Flying' magazine and Reader's Digest. He regularly and quietly wrote, never expecting or seeking recognition for himself, but only for the ideas he was espousing. His most recent work, compiled after years of extensive research, was a historical fiction novel that explored events in his Mormon background that had influenced his entire life. Throughout his life, David Bruce enjoyed traveling and aspired to the motto that one should never take the same road twice — but discover a new path. He earned his private pilot's license after the war and delighted in being able to take his loving wife on trips in the three different aircraft they had owned in his younger years. He also enjoyed riding motorcycles and combined this with another interest, camping, taking several biking cross-country camping trips. He took pleasure in woodworking and playing the piano until arthritis robbed him of that. His last years were lovingly and totally dedicated to caring for his ailing wife and maintaining their independence in their home in Pueblo West. He was preceded in death by both parents and all of his brothers and sisters. He is survived by his wife, Ila; a son, Don B. Gardner of Colorado Springs; a daughter, Christine G. King (Dan) of Kennewick, Wash.; and a daughter, Anita G. Azari (Aaron) of Arvada; and 10 grandchildren. His passing leaves a huge void in the lives and ache in the hearts of those who loved him, but it can honestly and proudly be said, “His was a life well lived!” He died at home in Pueblo West. Arrangements are pending at Fort Logan National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to one of the several organizations that David Bruce and Ila have consistently supported, especially UNICEF or the Alzheimer's Association.

Gardner, Joshua
Joshua Gardner - Pueblo Chieftain - March 23, 2010 -Youth, 16, drowns in Fort Lyon Canal - 16-year-old boy drowned Sunday after trying to rescue his dog in the Fort Lyon Canal in Bent County. The boy was identified as Joshua Gardner of Las Animas. Bent County Sheriff Gary Oyen said Gardner's body was found in the canal about three miles northwest of town at about 5 a.m. Monday. "We were called to the area at 7:16 p.m. Sunday and we conducted a search in the canal through the night," Oyen said. "We are not sure how long he had been in the water before we were called." The body was found less than a mile from where Gardner was last seen. The dog had not been located Monday, Oyen said. Starting from a dam and headgate west of La Junta, the canal stretches east through Las Animas to Lamar. A sheriff's report states that the emergency call was made after Gardner's boots, cell phone and four-wheeler were spotted on the south side of the canal east of County Road 9 on Fort Lyon Canal Road. Oyen said Gardner was near the edge of the canal when his dog fell in. "We understand that the boy dove in the water to try and save his dog," Oyen said. Gardner was a sophomore at Las Animas High School. Oyen said the canal was drained to help search and rescue teams locate Gardner's body. "The search went on for several hours," Oyen said. Rescue workers reported Monday that the water in the canal had been moving fast and deep. The search was conducted in Bent and Prowers counties. Some of Gardner's relatives reportedly helped with the search. Las Animas School District Superintendent Scott Cuckow said faculty and students were shocked and overcome with grief at the untimely death of Gardner. Cuckow said Gardner will be greatly missed by staff and students and district officials would like to convey their sense of loss and deepest sympathy to his family. "We all enjoyed Joshua. He would always smile at everyone and he was a great kid," Cuckow said. "Josh was a student of whom we all thought highly, a boy to whom we pointed to with pride as a student and athlete of our district." Cuckow said CSAP testing has been rescheduled to next week. The district conducted advisory meetings with the students Monday morning to communicate the news of Gardner's death. Counseling, which entails talking to teachers, staff and administrators, also is available to students. Cuckow said Southeast Mental Health Services will provide grief counselors starting today.

Geppert, Bonnie
Bonnie Geppert - Huerfano World Journal - May 12, 2011- Many years ago her friend, Jeannine Anderson, stitched a saying for Bonnie: “The Best Mirror is a Friend's Eye”. Bonnie treasured her family and friends. Even as she was dying of respiratory ailments on Tuesday, April 26, she was talking about the people she loved. Her beloved husband of 69 years, David, was at her side, as were three of her children, and the fourth, in Germany, was with the family in spirit. Bonnie was born “Rose Caryl” Pfanstiehl on August 3, 1922 in Highland Park, Illinois, although as a teen she decided she wanted to be “Bonnie”. She attended a boarding school in Colorado Springs and learned to love this part of the country. At Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, she met David Geppert. She and David married on June 6, 1942, just before he entered the service. After the war David, Bonnie and their two daughters, Trish and Caryl, moved to Manhattan, Kansas, where David taught in the music department of Kansas State College. Son Steven and the youngest daughter Margy were born in Manhattan. In 1951 the family moved to Rochester, NY where David studied for an advanced degree at the Eastman School of Music. After his graduation he joined the faculty. Bonnie was a full time Mom for her four children (a gift all of them treasure). In addition she was active in the Unitarian Church and sang in the choir which David directed. Throughout the Rochester years she played violin in a string quartet, set up a mimeograph office for “good causes” including protesting the Vietnam War, and cared for newborn babies waiting for their adoption by their “forever families”. In 1969 David decided to retire, and they had the opportunity to settle in La Veta. They moved into the Red House in 1970. Over the years, Bonnie became active in many local activities: the Garden Club, the La Veta Library (Treasurer/Secretary), the SPACe Gallery (Secretary/ Treasurer). Among her great joys was a horse named Sonya, which she gentled and rode in the countryside and in local parades. The Statue of Liberty and Lady Godiva were two of her favorite costumes. For several summers she took Sonya and her granddaughter to jumping shows. Bonnie taught her grandchildren to drive, taped numerous books for family and friends to enjoy, loved being a waitress at the Truck Stop and other places in town, drove a school bus for several years, rode her motorcycle over the pass to swim, or took friends for local cycling adventures. Her children and grandchildren were frequent visitors to the “Red House”. She loved her “Dolphin” motorhome for extended travel and for hosting special lunches with her friends. She was a voracious reader. Bonnie was generous with everything she had to give, from financial aid to sharing ideas, questions and criticism, often with a good laugh. To the very end she was deeply concerned with personal growth, which for her was always possible for everyone. A serious lung injury years ago gradually made breathing more difficult, and during her 80's her ability to enjoy diverse activities waned. So she learned to use the internet, loving the give and take of e-mails, and cherishing her communication with far flung family and friends. She remained as Secretary/Treasurer to the non-profit SPACe gallery. She is survived by her sister Lori Ives of Claremont, CA; her husband David; and four children, Trish (Winfree) Woollcott of Harbor Springs, MI, Caryl Emerson of Princeton NJ, Steven Geppert of Bloomfield Hills, MI, and Margy Walter of Hochdorf, Germany. She leaves six grandchildren, Rachael Winfree of Princeton NJ, Erik Winfree of Pasadena, CA, Chris Woollcott of Seattle, WA, Carrie Walter of Bristol, England, Ingo Walter of Salt Lake City, UT, and Steve Walter of Hochdorf, Germany. She saw her two great grandchildren last summer, Nicholas Winfree Budny (7) and Sophia Geppert Budny (1 ½). Bonnie was not afraid of death, and was deeply grateful for the years she enjoyed with her family and friends. She requested a small private celebration in memory of her life, and hoped that anyone wishing to honor her would contribute to the SPACe Gallery in La Veta. The family appreciates all the cards and letters of tribute and sympathy. The family also wishes to thank Dr William Cluff and the nurses on the Acute Care floor of the Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center for their compassionate care. Thanks to them, and to her own courage, Bonnie had the dignified and loving death she had hoped for. Life will be more difficult, and less full of wonder and joy without her.

Mr. Gerardo's family were early settlers of the Southbank of Rio De Las Animas in Southern Colorado which is located west of Trinidad. Elmer spent his early years in Torres, Tercio and Vigil known today as Stonewall, Colorado where his family has lived for over 250 years in El Valle de San Francisco. Elmer served in the U. S. Army during WWII from 1942 - 1945 as an MP guarding German prisoners of war in Louisiana and Mississippi. On November 19, 1945 he was married to Mary Patrick in Raton, New Mexico. They lived in Weston, CO where Elmer worked as a "propero" for the CF&I Corporation until 1953 when they closed the Weston Sawmill.

After the sawmill closed in Weston, Elmer and family moved to Colorado Springs where he worked for Harris's Auto Wrecking until 1958. At the time Elmer moved to Colorado Springs there was a television show which was popular called the "Cisco Kid". There was a major snow storm in Colorado Springs and The Free Press Newspaper photographer took a picture of Elmer clearing snow in downtown Colorado Springs , and thus he was given the nickname Cisco by the Free Press Reporter and Photographer, a name he used to his death. When the U.S. Air Force Academy first opened in Colorado Springs in 1958, Elmer went to work there starting in roads and grounds, then the dining hall and eventually Base Supply. Elmer "Cisco's" career paralleled the development and history of the Air Force Academy. He witnessed every cadet class graduation until his retirement including the very first graduation in 1959 when a small class of 300 cadets graduated. He witnessed the building of the AFA Chapel, Falcon Football Stadium, Dormitories and academic buildings, the entry of women cadets in 1976 and the first women graduates in 1980. During his twenty five year career at the Academy the last twenty two as a fork-lift operator in base supply, Cisco received three Sustained Superior Performance awards, three suggestion program awards and numerous letters of appreciation and commendation. Cisco retired on December 31, 1983. Elmer was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Mary Patrick Gerardo, on January 15, 2004. They were more than a couple they were partners in life. They fished, camped and hunted together throughout Colorado. They also travelled throughout the United States from Hawaii to Florida and points in between. Elmer was the oldest in a family of eleven.

Gerky, Eric
Eric Gerky - Pueblo Chieftain - June 2, 2009 - Eric Gerky, 32, Pueblo, May 30. Brown, Cheyenne Wells. Brown Funeral Home - June 2009 - On Feb. 11, 1977, Sheryl and Don decided to skip the state Wrestling tournament to stay home as Sheryl was pregnant. She went to her Dr. Appointment with Dr. Keefe, who told her she would still have 10 days to go. Sheryl decided she was ready to have the baby. As Kristie had just learned to ride her bike, she and Sheryl started to ride and by late evening Sheryl was back at the hospital and Eric Thomas Gerky was born. Eric, also know as “Wick” or “Gerk” was always a happy-go-lucky kid. He enjoyed playing outside and could always be found with his cowboy boots on, even in a pair of shorts. Eric attended Cheyenne Wells schools from kindergarten through graduation. When in 6th grade, Eric decided he didn't like a boy Kristie had over and broke down her bedroom door. He then proceeded to chase the boy out of the house and down the street, BB gun in hand telling him “you stay away from my sister”. Eric enjoyed school and could always be found in the middle of a class prank. In junior high, Eric and Kevin Simpson used a Karaoke toy radio to make Mr. Brown, the science teacher think he was being summonsed to the office. Upon returning, Mr. Brown found himself locked out and Eric laughing at him through the window. Mr. Brown had to go get the principal to get the main key, and they both proceeded to chase Eric around the class. While the class got a good laugh, Eric ended up in the principal's office. Eric participated in sports in junior high and played basketball in high school. Upon moving up to high school, Gerk found his love of cruisin'. When he first got his license, he decided to show Ron Unruh and Shawn Kirby how good of a driver he was and took a corner a bit fast. Eric put his little white pickup in the snow bank. Needless to say he drove a bit more cautiously after that. Eric also found his love for dancing and perfected “The Gerk”. He always could be found listening to The Doors or Kiss, playing Ouija board, and began his quest in becoming a black belt in Karate. After high school Eric worked several different jobs, finally settling down in Pueblo, Colorado. Eric loved to hunt Turkey, Pheasant, Deer and the occasional Leprechaun. He especially loved going to the farm in Kansas. Eric was always known to be the only one to catch much. He spent many nights sitting around bonfires, drinking beer and always had a “Remember when” story. Eric also had an interest in the culinary arts and taxidermy, and could always be found looking for the best tasting Rocky Mountain Oysters. Eric also enjoyed making and cooking them for friends and not telling them what they were eating until they were done. After surviving 43,000 volts of electricity, Eric now had stories of his near death experience and found himself with his “nub”. Eric never missed his thumb, as now he had a great conversation starter. He would always give you the “nub”, previously known as thumbs up. Eric always wanted to get a tattoo, but could never decide on the perfect one, changing every week. He enjoyed playing softball and bowling in Pueblo, and was always on the quest for a better way to make money as he always had something else he wanted to buy. Whenever he returned to Cheyenne Wells you would know it, as he was easy to spot in his blue and white plaid shirt and leather or KU hat. He could be found in the Tavern making Brenda Estep listen to “The Ring of Fire” by Johnny Cash. Once, playing it 20 times in a row. Brenda got her revenge, swapping the CD with Brittany Spears and leaving the same label. The next time Eric came in he heard Brittany 3 times in a row and politely requested it be changed back. Eric was a comic and enjoyed life whether around Cheyenne Wells or Pueblo friends. He always had a smile on his face. Eric passed away May 30, 2009 at his home in Pueblo, Colorado. He is survived by his parents Don and Sheryl Gerky, sister Kristie Blaze, nephew Joshua Blaze, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends. He is preceded in death by his Grandparents Glenn and Kathy Feyh, Grandparents Jack Gerky and Bernice Hansen, Uncle Donny Feyh, Aunt Brenda Feyh, Uncle Robert Gerky, Aunt Nancy Gerky and cousins Rylea Bruce and Christopher Landry. Eric was and is the apple of his parents' eye, the better half of his sister, the best uncle to his nephew, and a best friend to all of his friends. He will be missed but never forgotten, for he will be with us all of the time. A service of sharing and visitation was held on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at the Brown Funeral Home Chapel in Cheyenne Wells with Pastor Burry Bessee officiating. A funeral Mass was held on Thursday, June 4, 2009 at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Cheyenne Wells. Memorial contributions can be made to the Eric Gerky Memorial Fund in care of the Kit Carson State Bank in Cheyenne Wells.

Geske, Troy
Troy Geske - Pueblo Chieftain - August 28, 2010 - Four Nurses Back on Duty After Death at State Hospital - Six Mental Health Institute Staff Were Put on Leave After Aug. 10 Incident - Four of five nurses placed on paid administrative leave after the death of a patient at the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo are back on the job, officials said Friday. A sixth nurse and a state hospital police officer also were placed on paid leave after Troy Geske, 41, died Aug. 10 at the hospital. "I just know (the four nurses) are back as of (Friday)," Liz McDonough, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Human Services said Friday. "We're not releasing their names. This is a fairly common practice when you need to conduct an investigation.” The state hospital falls under the human services umbrella. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer wouldn't call Geske's death suspicious. "It's considered under investigation," he said. "I think the question at hand is, was his death due to positional asphyxia? It's when a person is in a particular position in that their breathing is compromised.” Geske's cause of death is pending results of a final autopsy, which hasn't been completed, Kramer said. Pueblo Chieftain - September 2, 2010 - CMHIP Patient Death Case Can Go Forward - District Attorney's Office Can Collect Evidence, Judge Says - A district judge on Wednesday authorized that evidence be collected for the recent in-custody death of a patient at the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo. Judge David Crockenberg signed a search warrant allowing the Pueblo District Attorney's office to collect evidence in the Aug. 10, death of Troy Allen Geske, 41. According to the court document, Geske was in treatment at the state hospital and had to be restrained. He was allegedly put in a "four-point restraint" or a "prone restraint" where "the hands are restrained behind the subject's back and the subject's feet are restrained and attached to the subject's hands.” The document said Geske was put in this restraint "laying face down," and as a result he "may have died from positional asphyxiation.” "If face down the subject is unable to roll to their side without assistance," the document said. "The inability to roll off one's chest and abdomen and take the pressure of their own weight off their lungs and diaphragm to breathe can cause asphyxiation.” Geske was 5 foot 8 inches tall and weighed 265 pounds. The document said that video exists of Geske in the restraints. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said he received results of Geske's final autopsy on Wednesday, but those reports had not been reviewed. "Final autopsy has been completed and needs to be reviewed and put in perspective with toxicology results and investigation results. I will be meeting with the district attorney's office to discuss those findings," Kramer said. Since Geske's death, six hospital staff members have been placed on paid leave — five nurses and a hospital police officer. As of last week, four of the nurses had returned to work. A phone call was not returned to a spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Human Services, which oversees the state hospital. Citing federal patient privacy laws Eunice Wolther, spokeswoman for the state hospital, would not release information about Geske's treatment or background. The names of the staff members have not been released. District Attorney Bill Thiebaut late Tuesday confirmed that his office is looking into Geske's death. Pueblo Chieftain - September 26, 2010 - State Patient Who Tried Suicide Dies - A state hospital patient who attempted suicide earlier this week died Saturday. Edward Benge, 49, died at 9:25 a.m. at Parkview Medical Center, according to the Pueblo County Coroner's Office. Benge tried to hang himself with a bed sheet early Monday in his room at the forensic unit at the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo. Dave Santos, an investigator with the coroner's office, said an autopsy is scheduled to determine Benge's exact cause of death. Benge's death marks the second of a patient at the state hospital in as many months. In August, Troy Geske, 41, died after staff restrained him to a table. The Colorado Department of Human Services, which oversees the state hospital, announced an independent audit of the facility last week to review facility policy and procedures aimed at the care and treatment of patients. Liz McDonough, a Human Services spokeswoman, said the audit was planned after Geske's death.

Gibbens, Clarence T.
Clarence T. Gibbens - Pueblo Chieftain - March 11, 1918 - Clarence Gibbens Killed When Auto Turns Over – Clarence T. Gibbens, age 24 years, assistant manager of the Baker Steam Motor Car Company of this city, was killed and his wife seriously injured and three others in the party escaped with slight bruises when an automobile driven by Gibbens turned over on the Colorado Springs-Canon City road near the Dockum ranch at a point 25 miles from Colorado Springs at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The three others in the car were Gibbens' two-year-old son, Keith, and Corporal and Mrs. C. S. Jones. The accident occurred when the car struck a patch of loose sand in the roadway and although the car was traveling at a moderate speed, Gibbens lost control of it and it went over the embankment. While the others jumped from the car, Gibbens was caught under the steering wheel and his head, face, neck and chest were so badly crushed that death resulted about an hour after the accident. When Gibbens saw that an accident was inevitable he yelled to the others of his party to jump. They did so just as the big Cole-8 car was overturning. Miraculously Mr. and Mrs. Jones escaped injuries other than a severe shaking up. The same was true of Keith, the two-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Gibbens, who was thrown clear of the car but suffered no injury. Mrs. Gibbens struck in such manner as to sustain serious injuries to her spine and numerous cuts and contusions about the head and face. Other automobile parties came upon the scene of the wreck in a few minutes time, and word was quickly sent by telephone from a nearby ranch house to Colorado Springs for assistance. An ambulance and doctors rushed to the scene of the tragedy. Gibbens was still alive when he was placed in an ambulance to be taken to Colorado Springs, 25 miles distant, but he died shortly after the trip was begun. The coroner of El Paso County investigated the accident. L. C. Gibbens, 622 west Twentieth street, this city, the father of Clarence Gibbens, received a brief message from Colorado Springs late last night telling him his son had been injured in an automobile accident, but the elder Mr. and Mrs. Gibbens did not know of their son's death until the father had called The Chieftain at an early hour this morning to ask for particulars concerning the accident. Mr. Gibbens left for Colorado Springs after midnight this morning. Mrs. Gibbens was removed to a hospital in Colorado Springs and reports from that city at midnight last night were to the effect that she is seriously injured. A sister of Mrs. Gibbens, Miss Mary Dowling, a nurse at the Colorado State Hospital in this city, was notified of the accident and hurried to Colorado Springs late last night to be at the bedside of her stricken sister. Fine Day to Be Out of Doors - Like hundreds of other Puebloans Mr. and Mrs. Gibbens yesterday morning decided that the day was ideal for a motor trip. They invited as their guests for a ride, Corporal C. S. Jones of the United States Army recruiting station of this city and Mrs. Jones. They, with little Keith Gibbens, made up the jolly party which yesterday forenoon motored to Florence. At Florence the party decided to motor to Colorado Springs, take dinner there last evening and then drive to Pueblo. Everything went well until the party was near the Dockum ranch on the Canon City-Colorado Springs highway. That road is usually in excellent condition for motoring, and it is said that such was the case yesterday except for an occasional spot of sand which had been placed in the road to fill some depression. Gibbens and Corporal Jones occupied the front seats of the car and Mrs. Gibbens, Mrs. Jones, and Keith Gibbens were in the tonneau seat. Car Was Moving Slowly - At the point where the accident happened Mr. Gibbens chanced to lift his gaze from the road and had looked back in order to speak to Mrs. Gibbens. Just at that moment the right front wheel of the car struck a patch of sand. The car is said to have been moving at a very moderate speed, but in some manner the steering wheel was wrenched from Gibbens' grasp for an instant. Before he could regain his hold on the wheel the car had swerved in the road and was about to overturn on a seven-foot embankment. All members of the party are said to have made effort to jump and were thrown clear of the car as it went over. Gibbens was caught under the overturned car and crushed by the steering wheel. He was gotten out from under the car, but it was quickly seen that he was probably mortally hurt. Gibbens was one of the most prominent of the younger set of business men of Pueblo. He was the assistant manager of the Baker Steam Motor Car Company and in both business and social life he counted his friends by hundreds. He was a member of the Elks Lodge at Newton, Kansas. Mr. and Mrs. Gibbens resided at the Majestic Apartments, 712 S. Union Ave. The remains of the deceased are held at Colorado Springs temporarily pending the outcome of the injuries of Mrs. Gibbens, but it is thought that the body will be brought to Pueblo sometime today or tomorrow. Pueblo Chieftain – March 12, 1918 – The body of Clarence T. Gibbens, the young man who was killed in an auto accident Sunday afternoon near Colorado Springs, arrived yesterday afternoon and was taken to the McMinn Undertaking Parlors. Mrs. Gibbens accompanied the body and was removed to her home at the Majestic apartments in the McMinn ambulance. She is resting easy and will recover from her injuries. Besides his wife he leaves one son, Keith Gibbens, age 2 years, father, L. Conrad C. Gibbens, residing at 622 W. 20th St. and who is employed as conductor on Missouri Pacific Railway, one sister, Mrs. Ben Utz, of Wichita, Kan., sister-in-law Miss Mary Dowling of this city, two brothers-in-law, John and Emmet Dowling, prominent lawyers of Cleveland, Ohio.

Gibson, 20 years old, died at a local hospital yesterday. Gibson resided at the YMCA and was favorably known here. He was an artist, but poor health made it impossible to follow the work. 2 months ago it was considered that a trip to Calif. might bring about a recovery, and Secretary B. V. Ruppel of the YMCA made it possible for the young man to secure good accommodations at Long Beach, Calif. The sojourn in a lower altitude failed to bring about the results. Gibson decided to come back to Pueblo and arrived here yesterday. He was so exhausted from the journey that he had to be carried from an automobile to his room at the YMCA yesterday morning. It was seen at a glance at his condition was grave and he was hurried to a hospital where he died. The young man lost his father, E. W. Gibson, a former Pueblo resident, who was accidentally killed in Chicago four years ago. He leaves 2 brothers, Earl of Rye and Harvey of Masillon, Ohio.

He is survived by two brothers, Harvey K. and Earl R. Gibson. About ten years ago his mother died, and five years ago his father, Eli W. Gibson, who came to Pueblo in 1881 and helped build the first C. F & I. plant, was accidentally killed in the South Chicago steel plant. William L. Rees was then appointed his guardian, and for five years has had his care under the direction of the county court. Three years ago heart trouble over took him, and two months ago Mr. Rees, under the direction of the county court, sent him to California, thinking this would prove beneficial to him. The change did not benefit him any, and it was decided to bring him back to this city, where he died a few hours after his arrival. For a time his home was with J. R. Risley, at Pinon; later at the Y. M. C. A., and while in Long Beach, Calif., his home was at the Y. M. C. A.

He was home schooled for four years before going to Branson School where he graduated in 1957. He was art editor for "School Daze" for four years. JR studied art under his uncle, Willard Louden in Folsom, N.M. JR attended TSJC in Trinidad, graduating in 1961. During this time he worked summers and any other spare time he had for Lloyd Winford on the Merril Ranch at Branson. In the fall of 1961, he joined the Navy and spent much of the next four years on a destroyer calling home base, San Diego. JR rodeod some during his time in the Navy, participating mostly in the bull riding. After the Navy, JR entered and completed a three-year program at the Hollywood Art Center School in Hollywood, Calif., on the GI bill. In the fall of 1970, he worked printing press and painted six billboards for a private enterprise in California. In the fall of 1970, he moved his family to Colorado where he managed the Table Mountain Ranch, south of Colorado Springs. This was a steer operation so JR had cattle from May to October. He spent much of the rest of the time with his art, maintenance and taking care of horses. He was there until the ranch sold in 1973 and they moved to Keys, Oklahoma as a hired hand. In 1975 the family moved back to Colorado to a ranch on Beaver Creek close to Penrose. After several years there he gave up ranch life, one of his many lifetime passions. JR then joined the Seabee Reserves and went to work at the Portland Cement plant and lived in Canon City. In 1979 life took JR and family back to Branson where he worked for the Branson School in a four-hat position. Besides custodian, bus maintenance and construction, he also taught some art classes from fourth to 12th grade levels. JR was divorced from his first wife in 1985 and continued raising their two children. In 1992, JR was remarried to Jeannie (JJ) Wallis. JJ encouraged JR in his art and, in 1994, he put together an annual calendar, which he continued to produce each year. In 1996, JR retired at the rank of E6 from the Seabees Reserves, concluding his military career after 24 years of service. JR was a long time member of the Branson Community church. After moving back to Branson he became involved in Camp Salvation, west of Trinidad. He spent many hours there over the years doing maintenance, construction and whatever else needed to be done. JR was president of the board from 1997-2006 and a board delegate up until the time of his passing. After JR and JJ moved to Des Moines, they attended church services in both communities. In the last several years they became affiliated with the Methodist church in Des Moines. In 1998, he retired from Branson School at which time he and JJ moved to Des Moines, where JJ had a home previous to their marriage. Since "retiring" JR had done day work, various remodeling and handy man work and art in his spare time. He had built a saddle room at their home in Des Moines, which he turned into an art studio. JR helped on a major add-on for his uncle Willard, the upper part being the Mesa de Mayo art studio and office. JR also did a major add-on and remodeling at his and JJ's home in Des Moines with the help of JJ's son, Wayne. JR just didn't know how to slow down and he never did. He left us with many lasting memories and his artwork will always remind us of his sense of humor and zest for life. We will never forget his easy smile and his uplifting chuckle. JR is survived by his wife, JJ (Wallis) Gilstrap of Des Moines; two children, Michael Gilstrap (LeAnne) of Colorado Springs, Michelle Gilstrap of Las Cruces, N.M.; his parents Jack and Dorothy (Louden) Gilstrap of Branson; brothers and sisters Larry Gilstrap (Nora) of Branson, Zita (Gilstrap) Coombs (Hal) of Rifle, Terry Gilstrap of Branson, Janie (Gilstrap) Jacobson (Randy) of Eaton, Cheri (Gilstrap) Ruark (James) of Rifle; 10 nephews and nieces, five grand-nephews and nieces, one grandchild and many other family and friends.

The fire occurred at 2:37 a.m. at the Kona Kai Apartments, 2216 Seventh Ave. According to a Pueblo police report, it began when Ginsburg, who was on oxygen, was smoking a "marijuana cigarette" and tried to change his oxygen tank. "The lit marijuana cigarette ignited the oxygen and the fire spread rapidly over William and his bed," the report said. Firefighters quelled the fire with two fire extinguishers, a news release from the Pueblo Fire Department said. The fire caused "minimal" damage to the apartment and tenants of the apartment complex were not displaced, the release said. It was the second fatal fire accident in Pueblo this month. On Feb. 2, a 65-year-old man died in a house fire in the Mesa Junction neighborhood.

He had been shot in the head and body 8 times. The shooting is said to have happened about 12:30 o'clock yesterday morning. No trace of the assassin has been found. The body of Geardano was found shortly after 2 o'clock by Joe Roche, living at 1702 Wabash Ave., when starting on a hunting trip. Further questioning of Roche by the police indicated that Geardano was shot about 12:30 o'clock as Roche said he heard several shots fired about that time. Roche said: "I was in the house and when about 12:30 o'clock I heard 6 shots fired. I did not pay much attention to the shooting although I looked out of a window and saw a man running in the direction of Bessemer. "At 2 o'clock in the morning I got up and left the house to go hunting. I was walking along Jones Ave. and when near Wabash Ave. I saw a man lying on the sidewalk on the south side of the street. I look to the man and saw he was dead, so I called the police." When the police arrived they call the coroner who had the body removed to Davis-Vories Undertaking establishment. Early yesterday morning Detectives Baty, Walton, and Deputy Sheriff Roddy, were assigned to the case, but the officers have so far been unable to pick up any clue or other information which would lead up to the arrest of the murderer or murderers. Geardano's wife was seen at her home yesterday forenoon by the officers, and when asked if she knew where her husband was she replied in the negative and added that she had been waiting for him to come home since early morning. The sad news was then told the wife who became hysterical. She later told the police that her husband had no known enemies and she could not think of any reason why anybody should want to kill him. The police then called at the home of C. A. Rosendahl, 1820 Lake Ave., who, the police learned, also heard several shots fired during the early hours of the morning. Rosendahl is said to have told the police: "I left the steelworks at midnight and when about 2 blocks from my home on Jones Avenue I saw 2 men walking along the sidewalk. The men were not together as a distance of about 50 yards separated them. I continued on my way home riding my wheel and after I had traveled a block I saw a young man walking. I have met the same man nearly every night lately and always passed him about the same place. "As I was about to enter my house I heard 3 shots, followed a few seconds later by 5 more shots. Immediately I heard a man shout. That was about 12:15 a.m. I did not venture out to see what the shooting was about." The officers then called at the steel works and they were told that, according to the records, Geardano left the works at 12:06 a.m. The coroner said the man died instantly as 5 bullets entered the man's head and face while 3 entered his body. The police are of the opinion that an automatic revolver must have been used. Geardano and his wife have been married but 8 months. The inquest will be held Tuesday at the Davis-Vories Undertaking parlors. Pueblo Chieftain – November 19, 1918 – Inquest Today – Inquest over the body of Antonio Geardano, who was murdered in Jones Avenue last Sunday morning, will be held at the parlor of Davis & Vories, beginning at 4 o'clock this afternoon. Pueblo Chieftain – November 20, 1918 – Jury Is Unable to Determine Murderer - Antonio Georgano came to his death as a result of pistol shot wounds inflicted by person or persons unknown; this was the verdict of the coroner's jury which yesterday afternoon at the parlors of Davis & Vories, held an inquest over the body of the Italian who was found dead at the corner of Wabash and Jones Avenues early on the morning of last Sunday, November 17. Dr. W. O. Patterson who performed the autopsy, read his statement to the jury. He reported having found that deceased had been shot seven times with bullets of the .32 caliber. One bullet entered and passed through the base of the nose from the right side, grazing the cheek on the left; another entered the cheek, passing through the head; a third and fourth entered the jaw and below the right ear; a fifth bullet had centered the bridge of the nose. The last four mentioned passed through the head and lodged in the back and side of the head; the sixth bullet cut a gash across two fingers of the left hand, and the seventh entered the right side from the inner front. Other witnesses were detectives Walton and Baty, who had been working on the case; they testified to finding a man who heard the shots at about 2 o'clock in the morning, and another who had met two men together and one alone in the vicinity of the shooting some little time before. Further, the officers stated they as yet had nothing to disclose. Pueblo Chieftain – November 21, 1918 – The funeral of Antonio Geordano will be held from the Davis-Vories Chapel this morning at 10:30 o'clock. Interment in Roselawn Cemetery.

He received his master's degree from Kansas State University. He began teaching math at Bishop Miege High School, but the call of the mountains brought him to Pueblo, Colo., where he taught for 24 years. One of his students wrote about him: “Mr. G. was always a teacher that genuinely cared about us kids and didn't just show up for a paycheck.” Steve's love for the mountains began in his youth with family vacations to Colorado. He climbed his first mountain in 1985 and never stopped. One of his major accomplishments was summiting all of the 14,000-foot peaks in Colorado in both winter and summer. He is one of only four people to accomplish this feat, which earned him a reputation for being the “grandfather of 14ers.” Narrations of his climbs were highly regarded and many looked forward to reading them. He also climbed Denali (Mount McKinley), Mount Elbrus, the highest peak in Europe, and Aconcagua, the highest peak in South America. Steve was well-known among his mountaineering friends as being friendly, selfless and humble in spirit; a patient mentor of beginners. However lofty these accomplishments, Steve's daughters were his greatest pride and joy. He shared his love of nature and the mountains with them, and they often accompanied him on his adventures. Steve is survived by his daughters, Linda, 16, Alise, 13; and his former wife, Nona, of Pueblo. He also leaves behind his parents, Jack and Marge Gladbach of Roeland Park, Kan.; siblings, Joe, Kathleen Norkus, Tim, Ann Graham, John, Peggy Louree, Bill, Jerry and their families. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and the mountaineering community. The website 14ers.com contains beautiful testimonials of Steve's life and climbing journeys posted by the mountaineering community and Steve's students.

Ruby was first known as a trick rider. By age 12, she broke and taught her horse “Tony” to do tricks and they performed at rodeos across Arizona. By 17, Ruby was trick riding on “Taffy,” thrilling crowds with their stunts. Ruby's interest turned to calf roping and by 19 years old she was roping professionally. In the early 1950's Ruby traveled the “Girls Rodeo Association” circuit. For several years, Ruby was the World's Champion Team Roper and the World's Champion Ribbon Roper.

In 1982 Ruby was inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame honored for her roping talents. Known for hard work and a lot of fun, friends gathered for the stories and Ruby's friendship.

Goldtrap, Charles K.
Charles K. Goldtrap – Pueblo Chieftain – December 28, 1918 – Woman Shoots and Kills Boy – Alleged Intruder – Charles K. Goldtrap, age 17 years, was shot and almost instantly killed shortly after 7 o'clock last night by Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett, at her home, 2630 Orman Ave., when, according to Mrs. Haskett, he attempted to gain entrance to the house where she and her daughter, age 14 years, and her son, age 10, were alone. Her husband W. H. Haskett and her older son were at work at the Minnequa Steel Plant at the time. The Goldtrap boy resided at 2510 Orman Ave., just a block this side of the Haskett home. Why he went to the Haskett home and for what purpose seems somewhat vague. The bullet penetrated his lung and he died before he could get out of the yard. According to the story told by Mrs. Haskett to Deputy Corner A. R. Davis, she was alone in the house with her two children when she heard someone knocking at the front door. "I called downstairs and ask who was knocking and what was wanted. I received no reply and the knocking continued. I shouted to the person at the door to go away, as I was alone and would not open the door. Then I heard some one walk around the house to the rear and as he walked he kept hitting the side of the house. Then someone knocked at the rear door and asked to be let in. I said I would not let anyone in the house and for God's sake to go away. At this moment I heard the back door open and someone's footsteps on the kitchen floor. I loaded a revolver that I kept in my bedroom and fired a shot through the bedroom window, thinking whoever it was would be frightened away. The intruder left the house. "Thinking that he had left the premises I went downstairs and opened the back door. I heard a noise but could not say what it was. I could not see anyone and to make sure that the man would go way, I fired another shot into the darkness. As soon as I did so I heard a man cry out 'Oh!' I hurried back into the house and a short time later was told that a man had been shot." William Mahar, residing at 2701 Orman Ave. is said to have heard the shots and later found the body of Goldtrap on the ground at the rear of the Haskett home. He called the police and sheriffs office. When night Capt. Sinclair and Patrolman McDonald arrived at the place, the stepfather of Goldtrap reached the Haskett home about the same time and told the police that the boy had left his home about 6 o'clock to visit with a chum and that while he was there, a girl, who was also visiting there told the boy that Mrs. Haskett's daughter wished to see him, and that this was the reason that he had gone to the Haskett home. An uncle of the boy told the police that his nephew had given the Haskett girl a box of candy on Christmas. Mrs. Haskett denied it is said, that she knew the Goldtrap boy. The body of the boy was removed to the Davis-Vories undertaking parlors where an inquest will be held Monday. Mrs. Haskett was not placed under arrest by Deputy Sheriff Roddy as she went into a hysterical condition shortly after she learned of what she had done and was under care of members of the family last night. Pueblo Chieftain – December 29, 1918 – Victim of Shooting Was Hard of Hearing – Investigations into the shooting of Charles K. Goldtrap, who, it is said, was shot and killed by Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett Friday night as he was attempting to leave the latter's home, was continued yesterday by William F. Bradley, Undersheriff and Patrolman William McDonald of the Police Department. The officers interviewed several witnesses and questioned them as to their knowledge of the shooting and acquaintance with Goldtrap, and although no startling developments were unearthed, one witness, it is said, claimed that on account of a defect in the hearing of Goldtrap, it was possible that he did not hear Mrs. Haskett calling to him. The police learned that Goldtrap was well-liked in the neighborhood and had never been known to partake of intoxicants. It is said a number of witnesses will attend the inquest to be held tomorrow afternoon at the Davis-Vories undertaking parlors. Pueblo Chieftain – December 30, 1918 – Goldtrap Inquest to Be Held This Afternoon – Inquest on the body of Charles K. Goldtrap, the 17-year-old youth who it is said was shot and killed by Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett Friday night while in the backyard of the Haskett home will be held this afternoon at 4 o'clock in the Davis-Vories Chapel. More than 16 witnesses have been subpoenaed to give testimony before the coroner's jury and the taking of evidence is expected to consume much time. Citywide interest has been shown in this case as the circumstances seem to present many peculiar features. Mrs. Haskett has not been placed under arrest on account of her poor health following the alleged shooting. Pueblo Chieftain – December 30, 1918 - The funeral of Charles K. Goldtrap will take place Tuesday, December 31, at 2:30 in Davis-Vories Chapel. Pueblo Chieftain – December 31, 1918 – Coroner's Jury Finds a Woman Shot Boy with No Felonious Intent – Charles K. Goldtrap came to his death near the corner of Orman Avenue and Illinois Street at 7:40 o'clock on the evening of December 27, from a gunshot wound inflicted by Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett, but that the killing was without felonious intent. This was the decision of the corner's jury which for more than two hours yesterday afternoon listening to testimony concerning the killing. Mrs. Haskett was the last to be called into the jury room and sworn. Deputy Dist. Atty. French L. Taylor very carefully explained to Mrs. Haskett that she could use her pleasure about testifying, adding that what she said might be used against her in the event of an information being filed charging her with murder. "I would rather not," replied Mrs. Haskett, "as I am so weak." She was then escorted from the room by her husband who was obliged to render her physical assistance. A dozen witnesses were examined, and the main facts were as stated in the Chieftain accounts already published, though it was shown that Charles K. Goldtrap and Beulah Haskett, the 14-year-old daughter of the woman who did the shooting, were not only acquainted but that several evenings before at the home of a neighbor where the two met, he gave a $3.75 box of chocolates; also that he had admitted to his friend, Ray Keough, that he thought a great deal of the girl; Keough stated that on the evening of the shooting he had tried to get Goldtrap to go with him to a show, but that Goldtrap declined saying he would rather go see his girl, referring to Miss Haskett. Ruth Keough, sister of Ray, stated that Beulah Haskett, while at her home that day or the day before told her to tell Goldtrap if he called there and wanted to see her, to come over to the Haskett house. Dr. Patterson, who performed the autopsy, stated that the bullet entered ½ inch to the right of the chest between the second and third ribs, passing the lining of the heart and breastbone, then through the left lung and left shoulder blade, lodging in the back near the spine. It was a .38 caliber, and fired from a Colt, as the evidence showed. Other witnesses testified to hearing the shots and the calls of Mrs. Haskett for help; her son and daughter told of the knocks on the doors and on the side of the house, of the entrance of the stranger from the rear, both claiming that he made no answer to the demands from the inmates to know who he was. Some witnesses stated that soon after the shooting, some spectators talked about bootleggers, but witnesses who had known young Goldtrap since he was a little child said he was always temperate, in fact a model boy. Witnesses who testified were: W. C. Mahar, Reed Clark, W. L. McDonald, Beulah Haskett, William Prosser, Mrs. Edith Prosser, J. J. Young, Melville R. Turner, Velma Turner, Marie Turner, Ruth Keough, Ray Keough, and Dr. W. O. Patterson. The Davis & Vories Chapel was crowded, and besides the officials in charge there were attorneys Dye and Phlegar. Pueblo Chieftain – December 31, 1918 – The funeral of Charles K. Goldtrap will take place this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the Davis & Vories Chapel. Interment will be made in Roselawn Cemetery. Pueblo Chieftain – January 1, 1919 – The funeral of Charles K. Goldtrap was held yesterday afternoon at 2:30 in Davis-Vories Chapel. Rev. J. H. Ketchum conducted the services. The pallbearers and flower bearers, all chums of the deceased boy, were: Albert and August Gianelli, Walter Nelson, Donald Campbell, Roy Lukenbill, Fred Hailing, Roy Keough, and Milton Brown. During the services Mrs. L. M. Johnson, accompanied by Mrs. P. K. Brown, sang "Sun Will Shine Again," "My Jesus As Thou Wilt," and "Sometime We'll Understand." Pueblo Chieftain – February 12, 1919 – Elizabeth Haskett Charged with Murdering Goldtrap – Charged with the murder of Charles Goldtrap on the evening of December 27, Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett was last night arrested by Deputy Sheriff C. F. Deliquadri, and lodged in the County jail. Chieftain readers will remember that testimony brought out in the coroner's inquest were that young Goldtrap had told a friend early in the evening that he was going to see Mrs. Haskett's daughter, who, after testimony showed had been acquainted with Goldtrap for some little time, and to whom he had given a costly box of candy a few days before. The testimony of the girl was to the effect that someone knocked on the front door, and later on the side of the house, and still later seemed to be trying to enter the rear door; that her mother got her brother's revolver and fired a shot after many calls to know who was there failed to bring a response, and that finally the mother fired a shot from the rear door. Testimony was that all the while Mrs. Haskett was shouting for help, her husband being at the steelworks and finally some neighbors came and after a search found Goldtrap dead near the back of the lot. Many witnesses were before the jury. The Haskett family was then residing in Minnequa Heights but the arrest last night was made at 1333 Orman Ave. Mrs. Haskett was away from home win Deliquadri called, and he waited until she returned. The coroner's jury returned a verdict stating that the killing was done "without felonious intent." The arrest of Mrs. Haskett was made on authority of a direct information issued yesterday from the District Attorney's Office and it charges murder in the usual form of such informations. Pueblo Chieftain – February 14, 1919 – Mrs. Haskett Arraigned on Murder Charge; Bond Is Set – Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett, charged with the murder of Charles Goldtrap on the evening of December 27 at her home in Minnequa Heights, a suburb of Pueblo, was arraigned before Judge Trimble of the District Court yesterday and entered a plea of not guilty to the charge. Seated at a table in front of the judge, her husband city not far away, Mrs. Haslett listened cooly to the arguments of her attorney, O. E. Phlegar, who had petitioned the court to fix a bond for his client and to Assistant Dist. Atty. Langdon as he combated the proposition of admitting her to bail while resting under a murder charge. Following his argument in favor of bail, Mr. Phlegar read extensively from the evidence taken at the coroner's inquest, and commented upon the points he felt would tend to bear out his contention that bail would be perfectly admissible in this case. Judge Trimble read from a number of authorities and cited some rulings in similar cases were bond was asked in murder charge cases. He said that while the discretion is with the court in such matters, "discretionary powers should be exercised with caution." He said that while under all circumstances obtaining in this case, he would feel justified in granting the petition, it he should make the bond large enough to assure the attendance of the defendant in court at such time as her trial might be set. $10,000 was the figure set by Judge Trimble, and up too late last night this had not been secured. And Mrs. Haskett was still confined in the County jail. Pueblo Chieftain – February 15, 1919 – Bond Not Forthcoming – Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett, charge with the murder of Charles Goldtrap on the evening of December 27 last, and who several days ago was admitted to bail by judge Trimble in the sum of $10,000 was still in the county jail last night, not yet having secured the bonds necessary to insure her freedom until the date of trial. Pueblo Chieftain – May 3, 1919 – Trial Date Set for Dozen Prisoners – A dozen prisoners were brought into court yesterday, that date being arraigned for setting of trial dates. Judge Trimble presided. Most of them were Americans, strange to relate, though there were two Mexicans in the bunch. Just about every phase of personal demeanor was there apparent; some were Munro's and apparently on attentive, others alert and uneasy, still others to all appearances happily passive. The case of Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett, who one night last winter shot and killed Charles Goldtrap, who is said to have come to see his daughter was not called yesterday; she is out on $4, 000 bond. Pueblo Chieftain – November 25, 1919 – Criminal Cases Including Three of Murder Set – Dates were yesterday set in Division A of the District Court for some of the big murder trial battles that are to be waged in this County this winter. Mrs. Elizabeth Hazlett, now one bond under charge of killing Charles K. Goldtrap said to have been a lover of her daughter, has her trial set for December 8. The killing was on December 27 last year. Pueblo Chieftain – December 8, 1919 – Murder Trial to Open This Morning – The trial of Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett, charged with the murder of Charles Goldtrap a year ago is scheduled to come up in the criminal division of the District Court this morning. Mrs. Haskett has had or freed him most of the time since her arrest, the district attorney consenting to her being released on a $5000 bond. Indications are that much time will be required in securing 12 jurymen acceptable to both the state and the defense in the trial in this case, and when this is accomplished, a considerable time will probably be required for the trial as there are a number of witnesses to be examined, among them some boys and girls of the community where the killing took place – Minnequa Heights. Pueblo Chieftain – December 8, 1919 – Murder Trial to Open This Morning – The trial of Mrs. Elizabeth Haskett, charged with the murder of Charles Goldtrap a year ago, is scheduled to come up in the criminal division of the District Court this morning. Mrs. Haskett has had her freedom most of the time since her arrest, the Dist. Atty. consenting to her being released on a $5,000 bond. Indications are that much time will be required in securing 12 jurymen acceptable to both the state and the defense in the trial of this case, and when this is accomplished, a considerable time will probably be required for the trial as there are a number of witnesses to be examined, among them some boys and girls of the community where the killing took place – Minnequa Heights. Pueblo Chieftain – December 9, 1919 – Many Delays in a Murder Trial – When Charles K. Goldtrap was shot through the artery which completely drained his heart's blood he might have moved a distance of 25 to 100 feet before he fell, and the heart might have continued to pulsate four from 2 to 5 minutes, according to Dr. W. Oh. Patterson, who testified yesterday and they Elizabeth Haskett murder trial. Mrs. Haskett, pale and worn sat between her husband and her attorney, O. E. Plegar, while the District Attorney Hughes recounted the killing of the 17-year-old boy about 8 o'clock on the evening of December 27 last, and stated that the charge made in the information is first-degree murder. The court room was crowded by men and women, among them a considerable number of young friends of Miss Haskett, and the young man who was killed. Selection of the jury did not require the time at first anticipated, as neither side availed itself of its full quota of challenges – 15. Maps of the scene of the killing, close to the corner of Ill. and Orman Avenues, Minnequa Heights, had been prepared, and other quite elaborate preparations have been made for going thoroughly into the hearing. There were several to the audience unaccountable delays following the beginning of the testimony, and at 4:30 a recess was taken until 10 o'clock this morning. Some peculiar incidents occurred during the examination of veniremen as to their acceptability as jurors in the case. One man called to the box stated on examination that he was the possessor of a very strong opinion as to the merits of the case, and when asked more specifically regarding the said opinion he became sufficiently explicit to say that his opinion was in favor of the defendant. Then came the test question of "can you and will you," etc. as outlined by the supreme court, and to this the venireman said he would "try to." Finally Judge Trimble took up the examining and when the judicial question was put the interrogated man said he hardly knew how to answer the question. He was finally excused. Pueblo Chieftain – December 11, 1919 – Juror in Haskett Murder Case Ill; Verdict Delayed – John Thompson, one of the jurors in the Haskett murder case, took suddenly ill at 8:30 last evening, just after the members had begun discussing the case in an effort to reach a verdict. Dr. H. T. Low was called, and put the patient to bed in the jury dormitory and remained with him for some time. The physician said late last night that he believed Mr. Thompson would be practically all right before the hour of opening court this forenoon. The jury had not reached a verdict at the time Mr. Thompson became ill. Mrs. Haskett was taken to the at jail when the case went to the jury, as at that time the obligations of her bondsmen ceased. A veritable bombardment of rebuttal evidence was launched into the Elizabeth Haskett murder trial by district attorney Hughes, following the closing of the testimony for the defense yesterday forenoon. Sensation after sensation held the breathless attention of the great audience as one after another of the positive statements of the defense was besieged by testimony of witnesses called by the state. One of the chief points of attack was on the testimony of Dr. W. O. Patterson, who was the first witness for the state, because it was he who performed the autopsy upon the body of Charles K. Goldtrap, where the doctor said he believed it would be possible for a person shot as was the victim of Mrs. Haskett's bullet, to travel a distance of from 25 to 100 feet, and that a person so shot may breathe for several minutes. When Dr. J. A. McGonigle, former county physician, was called for the purpose of giving expert testimony on this point, attorney for Mrs. Haskett raised vigorous objection, claiming that Dr. Patterson had been a witness for the people, and therefore it was not proper under the rules of evidence for the people to attempt to impeach its own witness. Mr. Hughes stated that it was not for the purpose of impeaching the doctor's testimony, but for the purpose of giving the jury all possible light, and furthermore Dr. Patterson had not been the state's witness from choice, but because his evidence concerning the autopsy he had performed, was absolutely necessary. "Doctors Differ" the court overruled the protest of Mr. Phlegar and after Dr. McGonigle had been qualified under the usual form as an expert witness, he was asked if he had read the postmortem report of the findings as made by Dr. Patterson on the body of Goldtrap. Answering in the affirmative, he was then asked what would be the effect of such a woman, which had been described as having cut the main artery close to the heart, and the answer was: "immediate result would be that the victim would drop." The district attorney in arguing in favor of allowing him to introduce additional expert testimony on the point, stated that Dr. Patterson was before and has been since the killing of Goldtrap, the physician of Mrs. Haskett. Dr. Joseph F. Snedec was then called and asked if he was a regularly licensed and practicing physician, and for how long. "Yes, for six years," was a reply. "Had you practice all that time in this city?" "All but 22 months of that time." "Where were you those 22 months?" "In France." "What were you doing in France?" "I was in the surgical core of the U.S. Army, connected with 168 field hospital." "Approximately how many surgical cases were handled by the hundred and 68th?" "Between July 28 and the signing of the armistice, we had between 13,000 and 15,000 cases." "Did you take active part in the surgical duties during that time?" "We all work 16 hours per day; eight on an eight off." He was then asked if he had read Dr. Patterson's autopsy report on the Goldtrap examination, and replying that he had, he was asked what would be the result of a wound such as was in that report described. "Such a victim would stop in his tracks, without moving, unless he was running, in which case his body would go only so far as the momentum carried it at the time the shot was received." "Defendant Disputed" then came rebuttal of testimony given by the defendant in the trial and police officer W. L. McDonald was called to the chair, and asked: "did Mrs. Hackett tell you that Goldtrap was coming down the stairs in her house and that she talked to him at this point?" "She did." Mrs. Solomon, a neighbor who testified the day before was recalled and asked if Mrs. Haskett had said to her: "he (Goldtrap) was coming down the stairs and I asked him what he wanted and he wouldn't answer, and I dropped the gun and shot him. If you seen what I seen you would do what I did." "Did she say that to you?" "She did," then came the cross-examination of Mr. Phlegar, who began by asking: "You are a fortuneteller, are you not?" "No sir." Testified for the defense, beside Mrs. Haskett herself, where her husband, who is a steel works employees; G. M. Seeds of Pyrolite, Colo., but formerly a neighbor of the Haskett; o. L. Whitemore, a son-in-law of the defendant, and Martin Haskett, the son of the defendant. Most of the evidence given by these persons, was with relation to Mrs. Haskett's physical condition of late and even as far back as 15 years, and with regard to the condition of the then Haskett house, and an addition which was in course of construction at the time of the killing. But the young son, Martin Haskett, 11 years old, was the star witness on his mother's side of the great controversy. The boy told all the circumstances as related by his mother at the inquest and again on the stand in the trial; he began at the time the first knock was heard on the front door, told how his mother had called to know what was wanted and that there was no reply; she called again and again, he said, and then got out of bed and took the revolver from a dresser drawer, loaded it, and then went to the window and fired outside. He and his sister Beulah, and their mother had gone to bed soon after 6 o'clock, he said. They generally did in the winter, and got up about seven in the morning. He and his sister were asleep when the first alarm was given. He then related all the remainder of the statement concerning the pounding on the side of the house and then the efforts of the visitor who would not respond to his mother's calls, to get in at the kitchen door; then how his mother barely opened the door and fired another shot, and someone outside exclaimed, "Oh." "Bright Boy Witness" "How "Over to my sister's house do you mean?" "No, how many times did you go over what you were to testify to?" "Oh, I didn't need to go over it with anyone at all; I was there myself." "You say you came down the stairs with your mother to see what was the matter at the kitchen door. Did you bring the light down with you?" "Know I couldn't do that; it was an electric light." "You said you were not sure whether you lock the kitchen door when you were the last person to come in that evening. How do you lock the door?" "We take a key input in the keyhole, and then turn the key until it throws the bolt." It was on such occasions as this that Bailiff Riley had to pound down laughter with his gavel. The opening address to the jury was made by deputy Dist. Atty. French L. Taylor, who ably recounted the evidence adduced. He was followed by E. O. Phlegar for the defendant and his address was strong and logical, and embodied a strong plea for the woman who he said was defending her home and her children from an unidentified intruder. Dist. Atty. C. B. Hughes closed with one of his characteristically logical and forceful arguments lasting 31 minutes. He pointed out for reasons why the defendant's story to his mind could not be true, and said: "Four Reasons" "She could not have shot either from the window or the door and struck Goldtrap where he was found dead, because of buildings being in the way." "She could not have shot from the house because witnesses saw the flashes from the gun out in the yard; also other witnesses heard the shots and stated that they were sharp and clear and not muffled as they would have been a fired from inside the house." "Three witnesses had testify that there were but 10 seconds between the two shots, and Mrs. Haskett could not have gotten her children up, done a partial dressing, come downstairs and opened the kitchen door and fired the second shot in 10 seconds after the first shot upstairs." He also call special attention to the fact that the defense had not allow the daughter, Beulah Haskett, to testify, after it was proven that she had sent for Goldtrap to visit her on that fateful evening. "Five Possible Verdicts" Lengthy and carefully prepared instructions were given the jury by Judge Trimble, and in these he prescribed five different verdicts which under the law in such a case the 12 men might choose from. They were: First-degree murder with death penalty; first-degree murder with life imprisonment; second-degree murder; voluntary manslaughter, or not guilty. Following are the members of the jury who for three long days listened to the testimony and the addresses: C. A. Perry, B. B. Leftwich, George Shearer, John Thompson, E. C. Pettit, Robert Clark, G. W. Tanner, J. G. Morton, c. H. Gann, O. F. Lankford, Anson Carpenter, H. W. Gibbons.

Gonzales, Ermidia
Ermidia Gonzales - Pueblo Chieftain - October 9, 2010 - Suspect sought in fatal crash - The Colorado State Patrol is seeking the public's help in tracking down a suspect in an August crash that killed three people in Capulin. Alexander "Alejandro" Quintana, 19, of Capulin, is wanted on suspicion of three counts of criminally negligent homicide for allegedly running in front of a truck Aug. 14 and causing it to swerve off the road. The truck, which was traveling at speeds over 90 mph through the small town, went off the road, hit a rock fence then rolled twice, taking out a pair of telephone poles, a tree and two parked cars. Ermidia Gonzales, 17, David Martinez, 28, and Jason Rousey, 29, were killed. All three were ejected from the vehicle during the accident. According to the affidavit for Quintana's warrant, he was in a separate car that had arrived earlier to Capulin and was waiting for his friends in the truck to arrive. When Quintana saw the truck coming into town, he allegedly told a witness "Watch this," and ran into the road. When another witness asked Quintana what he was doing in the road, he said he was just being stupid, according to the affidavit. Capt. George Dingfelder of the state patrol said investigators are unsure if Quintana remains in the area. An obituary for David Martinez listed Quintana as his brother, although the patrol could not confirm their kinship Friday. Anyone with information about Quintana's whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 719-589-4111 or the patrol at 719-589-5807. Callers, who may remain anonymous, are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if they provide information leading to an arrest. Two juveniles also were seriously injured in the accident. One of them, who was later identified by authorities as the driver of the truck was arrested Sept. 22 and charged as a juvenile with three counts of vehicular homicide, three counts of manslaughter and single counts each of vehicular assault and reckless driving.

Gonzales, Ernest Jr.
Ernest “Archie” Gonzales - Pueblo Chieftain - March 13, 2014 - A 49-year-old Pueblo man died Tuesday from injuries he suffered in a motorcycle accident Feb. 23 on Interstate 25 near the First Street on-ramp. Ernest “Archie” Gonzales died at Parkview Medical Center where he had been receiving treatment for a serious head injury, according to his brother Edward Gonzales. “He fought and fought but he was exhausted and couldn't fight anymore,” Gonzales said. Gonzales said the family wants to talk with anyone who may have witnessed the accident that Sunday night at 7:15 p.m. in the southbound lanes of I-25. “We basically just want to know what happened. We've been through a lot already and we just want to put our mind at ease,” he said. “We've heard that people stopped and prayed for my brother but were told to leave when police got there. We want to know what those people saw.” According to a police report, Gonzales was driving a 2006 Yamaha motorcycle southbound on I-25, just south of the First Street on-ramp. The report said there was another accident further south on the interstate and Gonzales appeared to have braked suddenly, causing him to lose control of the motorcycle. The motorcycle tipped to its right side, ejecting Gonzales, who was not wearing a helmet. Police do not believe drugs, alcohol or speed were a factor in the accident. Edward Gonzales said his brother was a very conscientious driver and believes if traffic had slowed ahead of him, he would've seen it and taken precautions. “At the point where he was on the interstate, he would've been able to see taillights from a distance. We want to know if there was something else that might've caused him to stop so suddenly and lose control.” Anyone with information about the accident can contact Ernest Gonzales' daughter Michelle at 307-761-2139 or Edward Gonzales at 719-553-6057. The family is hosting a fundraising dinner Saturday to help with medical and funeral costs. The dinner is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Sam's Bar, 1549 E. Evans Ave. An account also has been set up at Wells Fargo in the name of Ernie “Archie” Gonzales.

Two dozen men then raided the jail and overpowered the two remaining guards.

I found him to be very respectful of adults - very pleasant," she said. The DeLeons, both District 60 retirees, said such tragedies are difficult to accept. "As a teacher and educator, you grow close to these kids. Something must have really caused him to go over the edge. He didn't have that kind of temperament," she said.

Gonzales, Lea
Lea Gonzales - Pueblo Chieftain - November 29, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1994 - 1995 - Gang Violence Erupts Throughout Pueblo - 1995 - March 9: Lea Gonzales, a 14-year-old Pitts Middle School student, dies of injuries she received in an auto-pedestrian accident while crossing Pueblo Boulevard. Her death resulted in a redesign of the crossing walk. Pueblo Chieftain - March 14, 1995 - Pitts Pupils Mourn Loss of Their Classmate - "You were always nice to me, Lea. I'm going to miss you." "In memory of Lea Gonzales. We love you." These are some of the things Pitts Middle School students have written in tribute to their late classmate, Lea Gonzales, 14, who was killed last week when she was hit by a car on Pueblo Boulevard. Friends and family have erected a shrine of flowers, crosses, posters, and candles at Pueblo Boulevard and Lehigh Avenue in memory of the eighth-grader. When school let out Monday afternoon, groups of students gathered at the shrine to mourn their friend. The students didn't seem to notice the noisy traffic that constantly zoomed by. Some quietly hung posters signed by Lea's classmates and some picked up trash. Some lit candles and hugged each other, while others hung their heads in prayer. "There should be crossing guards here," said 11-year-old Crystal Medina as she helped Taylor Bekeza, 11, hang a poster. "I have to cross this street every day and I get a little scared every time, especially after this happened." Both Crystal and Taylor agree that crossing guards are needed. "I think the parents should volunteer," Crystal said. "If we don't get crossing guards, we're just going to have to be extra careful." Sean Baca, 12, said something needs to be done before another "kid gets killed." "They keep saying they're going to put in an overpass, but where is it?" he asked. "This is one of the busiest intersections; they need crossing guards, at least." His classmate, Joshua Magoon, 12, agreed that an overpass is probably the "best thing." "If more and more kids keep getting killed, it's not going to be very good for the city," Joshua said. "It's just really sad when something like this happens. There should at least be crossing guards, or even a `no right turn on red.' " A funeral Mass will be held for Lea at 10 a.m. today at Our Lady of the Meadows Church, 23 Starling Drive. Burial will be at Imperial Memorial Gardens.

Gonzales, Rebecca
Rebecca Gonzales - Pueblo Chieftain - June 25, 1999 - Gonzales Recalled as "a Lovable Kid' - "Calm," "a lovable kid" and "a good student" were terms that a retired local school administrator used to describe former Puebloan Simon Gonzales, who police say shot and killed his three young daughters, then died in a shootout with police in Castle Rock early Wednesday. At about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, Gonzales shot out a window at Castle Rock police headquarters. Four officers returned fire at Gonzales, who fell near the front of the bullet-ridden truck. Officers then found Gonzales' daughters - Rebecca, 10, Katheryn, 8, and Leslie, 7 - in the cab of the pickup. Gonzales, 30, attended Pueblo schools and was listed as a senior in the 1986-1987 Centennial High School annual. However, he did not complete graduation requirements, Centennial principal Frank Latino said Thursday. Latino, who was a Centennial assistant principal in 1987, said he did not remember Gonzales. However, Josephine DeLeon, a former Centennial High School assistant principal, said she and her husband, Frank DeLeon, a former Freed Middle School principal, were shocked by Gonzales' actions. "My husband and I were talking about Simon (Gonzales) this morning. He was a lovable kid. I couldn't believe he did what he did," she said. Mrs. DeLeon said she remembered Gonzales as "a good student who never got in trouble." "He was just a very nice young man, very handsome, very good looking. He always seemed to have a good attitude. I found him to be very respectful of adults - very pleasant," she said. The DeLeons, both District 60 retirees, said such tragedies are difficult to accept. "As a teacher and educator, you grow close to these kids. Something must have really caused him to go over the edge. He didn't have that kind of temperament," she said.

Pueblo Chieftain - March 7, 2014 - A 24-year-old man was shot and killed by police Wednesday night after he allegedly pointed a gun at officers. Related Man killed in Pueblo officer-involved shooting - The incident happened around 10:30 p.m. at a home on the 1600 block of Jackson Street, according to Sgt. Eric Gonzales with the Pueblo Police Department. Police were called to investigate a domestic disturbance involving a weapon between a man, his girlfriend and, later, a female member of her family. The man, identified by Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer as Robert Gonzales, allegedly was menacing the two women inside the house before shooting at one of them. Officers said they heard the shot as they arrived. Officers confronted Gonzales and he allegedly pointed his weapon at them. Police said they gave commands for the man to drop his weapon. Police then allegedly fired at him. The man died from multiple gunshot wounds to numerous parts of his body, according to Kramer. The entire incident took place in under eight minutes, according to police. Police said the quick response of the officers may have saved the life of one of the female victims, as Gonzales fired his handgun at her but missed about the same time officers arrived on scene. The exact number of gunshot wounds Gonzales died from was unclear Thursday, but Kramer said the primary wounds were to his upper body. An autopsy of Gonzales' body is scheduled for today. The two women were uninjured. No officers were injured in the incident. There were numerous officers involved in the incident, police said, though they didn't indicate precisely how many. The officers involved will all be put on paid administrative leave as the investigation is conducted per normal protocol. The officers' names are not being released at this time. Police said names of officers involved in shootings are usually not released right away in order to give the officer and their family time to deal with what happened before going public.

Gonzales, Sec
Sec Gonzales – Pueblo Chieftain – February 14, 1918 – Man Shot at Walsenburg Dies in Pueblo Ambulance – A bullet wound in the forearm received at a shooting affray in Walsenburg a few hours earlier resulted in the death in this city at 4 o'clock yesterday morning of "Sec" Gonzales, a printer. Gonzales, who had received the bullet of a 30-30 rifle in his right forearm, is said to have grasped with his left hand a revolver as it fell from his right hand when he was shot and with the revolver he slew the man who had shot him. The killings were the outcome of a fight at a Mexican birthday party Tuesday night at Walsenburg. There had been trouble during the evening, and it is said that officers had disarmed all the guests. Later in the evening the brawl broke out again, and Gonzales obtained a revolver which he was said to have been brandishing, and with which he was threatening vengeance upon anyone who came across his path. The host, David Harr, is said to have resented "Sec" Gonzales' actions. Harr went away and soon returned with a 30-30 rifle and is said to have threatened to "clean out the house." Gonzales whirled upon Harr and tried to shoot him. Harr was too quick for his antagonist and a bullet from his rifle tore Gonzales his right forearm to pieces. But Gonzales caught the pistol that was falling from his own mangled right hand and quick as a flash, he fired left-handed at Harr who fell dead in his tracks. The train to Pueblo was soon due to pass through Walsenburg, and friends of Gonzales rushed him to the train to take him to Pueblo for hospital treatment. Gonzales died from loss of blood in an ambulance while being rushed from the train here to the hospital. The body was removed to McCarthy's parlors and by that firm forwarded last night to Walsenburg. "Sec" Gonzales was employed as a printer on a Walsenburg newspaper. He is said to have been under bond for a murderous assault with a deadly weapon upon a Walsenburg peace officer committed last Christmas night. He was a member of a typographical Union, and members of that organization are said to have made the funeral arrangements here, and will act in a similar capacity at Walsenburg. Pueblo Chieftain – February 14, 1918 – The body of S. Gonzales, who was murdered while attending a party Tuesday evening in Walsenburg, will be forwarded to Walsenburg by the McCarthy Undertaking Company today for interment.

Gonzales, Simon J.
Simon J. Gonzales - Pueblo Chieftain - June 25, 1999 - Gonzales Recalled as "a Lovable Kid' - "Calm," "a lovable kid" and "a good student" were terms that a retired local school administrator used to describe former Puebloan Simon Gonzales, who police say shot and killed his three young daughters, then died in a shootout with police in Castle Rock early Wednesday. At about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, Gonzales shot out a window at Castle Rock police headquarters. Four officers returned fire at Gonzales, who fell near the front of the bullet-ridden truck. Officers then found Gonzales' daughters - Rebecca, 10, Katheryn, 8, and Leslie, 7 - in the cab of the pickup. Gonzales, 30, attended Pueblo schools and was listed as a senior in the 1986-1987 Centennial High School annual. However, he did not complete graduation requirements, Centennial principal Frank Latino said Thursday. Latino, who was a Centennial assistant principal in 1987, said he did not remember Gonzales. However, Josephine DeLeon, a former Centennial High School assistant principal, said she and her husband, Frank DeLeon, a former Freed Middle School principal, were shocked by Gonzales' actions. "My husband and I were talking about Simon (Gonzales) this morning. He was a lovable kid. I couldn't believe he did what he did," she said. Mrs. DeLeon said she remembered Gonzales as "a good student who never got in trouble." "He was just a very nice young man, very handsome, very good looking. He always seemed to have a good attitude. I found him to be very respectful of adults - very pleasant," she said. The DeLeons, both District 60 retirees, said such tragedies are difficult to accept. "As a teacher and educator, you grow close to these kids. Something must have really caused him to go over the edge. He didn't have that kind of temperament," she said.

Goodman, Eula
Eula Goodman – Pueblo Chieftain – April 20, 1919 – Negress Shot and Killed by Her Jealous Lover – Jim Hall Then Tries to Commit Suicide But Is Prevented from Doing so – Escapes Police – Mrs. Eula Goodman, age 29, was shot and killed by Jim Hall, at her home 1241 Cypress St. at 11:45 o'clock last night. Both were colored. The murderer then hurried to his own home, 1512 Cypress St., and attempted to commit suicide. In this he was prevented by his step-father who wrestled the gun from his hand. He fled from home before the police arrived and had not been apprehended at an early hour this morning. The murder took place while Mrs. Goodman's mother and sister were in an adjoining room. According to the story told by Mrs. Grace M. Reade, who is Mrs. Goodman's mother, Hall and her daughter were visiting in the kitchen of the home. She and another daughter were in an adjoining room. Mrs. Goodman was called to the telephone by a friend, Mrs. Jennie Glover, and before she had finished the conversation, Hall rushed into the room with the revolver in his hand, fired three shots at the woman as she stood by the telephone. She died almost instantly, one bullet penetrating her breast and the other 2 passing through the abdomen. Hall then rushed from the house. The Mrs. Glover with whom the murdered woman was talking over the phone heard the reports of the shots over the wire and called the police department stating that a shooting had taken place at 1241 Cypress St. Captain Sinclair, Officers Johnson and Peterson hurried to the place in the patrol wagon picking up Officers McClannahan, Reade, and Evans on the way. At the home of the murdered woman, the officers obtained two addresses where it was expected that the Negro would be found. But when they arrived at the home of his parents, a search revealed that he had fled from the house in his shirt sleeves. Hall was deeply in love with Mrs. Goodman, according to his stepfather, and was crazed with jealousy. It is presumed that when Mrs. Goodman went to the telephone, Hall suspected that she was talking with some other man. The police dragnet was spread out and it is expected that Hall will be arrested sometime today. Pueblo Chieftain – April 21, 1919 – Police Arrest Negro Who Murdered His Sweetheart – Dripping water like a half drowned rat, after spending the greater part of Saturday night hiding in the Bessemer ditch, James Hall, slayer of Mrs. Eula Goodman was captured at 6:30 o'clock yesterday morning by Chauffeur Tom Johnson and Patrolman Day in a house on Evans Avenue where he had asked for shelter early Sunday morning. The family who harbored the murderer had heard nothing of the crime of which he was accused and as soon as they learned of the deed they communicated with the police and the murderer was arrested before he got out of bed yesterday morning. His clothing was soaked with water from head to foot and it is thought by the police that he hid in the Bessemer ditch which is only a block from the home of his stepfather, while the police were searching in the vicinity. Later he left his hiding place and proceeded to the home of a friend where he stated that he had gotten into a shooting scrape with another man but that no one had been hurt. He said that he was afraid to go home and asked to spend the rest of the night in the friend's house. Charles Taylor, colored, who rooms at the home of the slain girl stated today that he was an eyewitness to the shooting. Hall admits the shooting but denies that Taylor or anyone else saw him fire the fatal shot. This point is extremely important as a confessed murderer cannot be given the death sentence by a jury unless there is an eyewitness to the killing. Taylor claims that he was in the room adjoining the kitchen talking to the invalid sister of Mrs. Goodman just prior to the shooting. He says that he stepped into the kitchen in time to see Hall going through the door between the kitchen and the dining room and that he saw the murderer fire the first shot at Mrs. Goodman as she was standing at the telephone turned halfway toward him. As Hall fired the first shot the curtain over the door swung to and Taylor did not see him for the last two shots which are thought to have been the ones that pierced the abdomen. Hall at first denied any knowledge of the crime but later admitted the shooting when confronted with the gun which he had used. According to the story, witnesses and friends, Hall had been visiting with Mrs. Goodman in the early part of the evening and at 9 o'clock took his lunch and stated that he was going to work. The Negro was employed on the steelworks shift beginning at 10 o'clock. Instead of going to work he went to the home of his stepfather and procured a .32 caliber revolver. Meanwhile Mrs. Goodman, accompanied by Maude Caffey, had gone to a supper at the home of a family by the name of Rosen where the two girls met two men by the name of Pearl Williams and William R. Baker. When the stepfather learned that the boy had taken his revolver he feared trouble and began to telephone around in an effort to locate Mrs. Goodman and warn her. The word was finally gotten to her before she left the Rosen house and she immediately summoned a taxi to take her and her girlfriend home. The two men did not accompany the girls to their homes. Mrs. Goodman is said to have phoned her mother and asked her to meet her at the front gate. The taxi took the Caffery girl to her home and just before reaching the home of Mrs. Goodman, Hall arrived. Taylor is said to have accused Hall of carrying a gun which the latter is alleged to have denied. Mrs. Goodman's sister also accused him of having a gun which he again denied. After Mrs. Goodman entered the house the phone rang, the call being for Mrs. Glover, a friend. Mrs. Goodman answered the call and after talking a few minutes, Paul entered the room. As he stepped through the door she turned toward him and he shot her through the breast near the base of the neck. He followed this with two more shots and then fled from the house. Taylor rushed to the phone and told Mrs. Glover to phone the police. Hall told the police that jealousy was a motive for his crime. He claimed that Mrs. Goodman with whom he was deeply in love, had been going with other men. She has been separated from her former husband for some time and Hall has been a persistent suitor. He claimed that she promised to marry him once. Hall is a good mechanic and has been employed steadily at the steelworks. Mrs. Goodman is the daughter of Mrs. Grace M. Reade. Pueblo Chieftain - April 21, 1919 - Eula Goodman, age 29 years, died at 1241 Cypress Street, yesterday morning. She leaves a husband, Joe Goodman, two sisters, Mrs. John Stone and Mrs. Henry Reed of 1211 Cypress Street. She was a member of the Temple No. 10 of S. M. T. Body at United. Pueblo Chieftain - April 24, 1919 - The funeral of Eula Goodman will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 from St. Paul A. M. E. Church. Rev. T. S. Sanders will officiate. Interment will be in Roselawn in charge of the United. Pueblo Chieftain - April 27, 1919 - Jury Wasted Little Time in Reaching Verdict at Inquest - Luela Goodwin came to her death as a result of a gunshot wound inflicted by James Hall, with felonious intent. This is the verdict of the coroner's jury empanelled by Deputy Coroner W. B. McMinn, the inquest being held at the parlors of the United Undertaking Co. yesterday afternoon. It was the shortest and most positive inquests yet held in this county; there was not a doubt about the facts related and, tho the murderer was called to the stand and told he could or need not, as he desired, make a statement, he would have nothing to say. Dr. Luke McLean read a report of the autopsy held by him, stating that a bullet of probably .32 caliber struck the young Negro woman in the neck, just to the left of the wind pipe, cut the jugular vein and lodged in the back near the shoulder; this wound caused instant death thru shock and hemorrhage. Charles Taylor, also colored, testified to having seen Hall fire the first shot at the woman, this being the one that killed her, as the others were fired in another direction. After the first shot a curtain swung before his vision, and he did not see clearly which way the smoking revolver was pointed. He stated that Hall had been to the home of Mrs. Grace Reed, mother of the murdered girl, 1241 Cypress Street, earlier in the evening, leaving there at 8:45; he came back at 11:30 and was stopped outside and told by Mrs. Reed that his stepfather had called up and said that he (Hall) had taken his gun and was out looking for Miss Goodwin; he denied the statement, and also told witnesses that he had no gun. He then went into the house, and Taylor followed into the house; he saw Hall seated in the kitchen. Miss Goodwin was called to the phone by a Mrs. Glover and had just answered "yes," when Hall stepped into the doorway. The girl heard him and turned toward him. At that instant he fired the shot which killed her. Witness Taylor saw the revolver and the firing quite plainly. Asked by Deputy District Attorney French Taylor if he could identify the man who committed the murder, the witness turned and faced Hall, and said, "Yes, that is the man." Mrs. Reed, the mother of the dead girl, had to be assisted to the witness stand and was fanned all the time by another Negro woman, and with the greatest difficulty the woman told the story of the murder. She was in an adjoining room attending to a sick daughter, but heard the shots and ran into the room of the tragedy and saw her daughter lying in a dying condition on the floor. She saw Hall run out of the house. Cornelia Stone, the sick sister of the dead woman, also testified with great difficulty, weeping most of the time; her testimony was similar to that of the mother. She also saw Hall leave the house. Detective Grady, Night Captain Sinclair, Police Officer Johnson, and Patrolman McClanihan, the latter colored, testified to the call at the police station, the search for the murderer and later the capture at a house on Evans Avenue the next morning. Johnson stated that when they reached the home of Hall's stepfather they were told that Hall had come there and had been gone not longer than five minutes; he said he had taken the revolver away from Hall, and this he turned over to the officer. Grady told how the next forenoon after the killing, Hall confessed that he did it, and that the gun the police showed him was the one he had used; he told the officers that jealousy prompted the act. At the close of the inquest Deputy Sheriff Delliquadi replaced the handcuffs on Hall and took him to the county jail. Pueblo Chieftain - April 27, 1919 - The funeral of Eula Goodman was held Friday afternoon at 2:30 from the St. Paul A. M. E. Church. Rev. T. G. Sanders officiated.

Goodwin, Wilbur G.
W. C. Goodwin – Pueblo Chieftain – March 17, 1918 – Two Men Are Fatally Shot During the Night – 2 men were fatally shot last night. One by patrolman and the other by unidentified assailants on the street. Patrolmen Lovern shot and fatally wounded a Mexican when the Mexican attempted to shoot him. W. C. Goodwin was found with five bullet holes in his head and body by passersby, the wounds probably being inflicted by shots fired from the gun of highwaymen or black handlers. Goodwin died at 3:15 o'clock this morning and the Mexican shortly afterwards. While patrolling his beat, part of which takes him through the alleys of the residence section of the Mesa at 11 o'clock last night, patrolman George Lovern suddenly came upon 2 men acting in a peculiar manner in the alley just off W. Abriendo Ave. at the Mesa Junction. Lovern called upon the two men to halt, but they continued through the alley to a point where it is intersected by another alley. They turned into this other alley and were attempting to escape. Lovern ran down the street to a point where the alley emerges. There he came face-to-face with the two men, both Mexicans, one of whom pointed a gun at the officer and is said to have attempted to shoot Lovern. Lovern was prepared for them and fired at the man who was endeavoring to shoot him. The man darted back into the alley and as he ran he pointed the revolver at the officer and attempted to fire. Either the mechanism of the Mexican's revolver failed to act or the Mexican was too weak to shoot. As he fled in the darkness of the alley, Lovern fired twice at the fleeing figure and the Mexican sank to the ground. During the shooting the second Mexican made his escape in the darkness. The officer summoned assistance and the injured Mexican was hurried to St. Mary's Hospital where it was found that he had been shot three times, all three of the officer's shots having taken effect, and any one of which was in itself probably sufficient to produce death. One shot pierced the abdomen and passed entirely through the body. Another hit the Mexican in the stomach and is believed to have lodged in the spine. The third shot struck the man in the left shoulder and all but severed the arm. Despite the grave nature of his injuries the Mexican, whose name could not be learned by the officers, and who steadfastly refused to give them the name of his companion, was alive at the hospital at an early hour this morning, though his death is said by attending surgeons to be only a matter of hours. Lovern was much affected by the tragedy but believes that it was only by a miracle that he escaped death at the hands of the Mexican. While on his way home from his work as foreman of the afternoon shift of the screening plant of the Pueblo Smelter, Wilbur C. Goodwin, residing at 931 Routt Ave., was shot five times and mortally wounded at about 12:15 o'clock this morning. The shooting occurred on the extreme south end of Spring Street, about one block south of the end of the Spring Street viaduct over the Denver & Rio Grande railroad tracks. Goodwin had worked his shift at the plant and had checked out at the clock house at the Pueblo smelter gate at 12:01 o'clock. A few minutes later, Joseph Denning, night chief clerk at the smelter clock house heard five shots. They sounded so clear on the night air that Denning thought they had been fired someplace possibly on or near the grounds of the smelter yards. He went out of the clock house to investigate, but could find no trace of a shooting. As a matter of fact the shooting had occurred about a mile and a half away. At about the same moment a city firemen, James J. O'Brien, Jr., Capt. of Hose Co. No. 1 residing at 35 Block X, near the scene of the crime, telephoned the police station to say that a man had been shot and probably killed and was lying in the street. Police officers hurried to the scene and removed the injured man to St. Mary's Hospital, where at 3 o'clock this morning he was said to be in a dying condition. All five of the would-be assassin bullets hit Goodwin, and he sustained bullet wounds in head, chest, arms, and abdomen. Goodwin was not known to have had an enemy, and his employees and fellow workers speak of him as having been a steady hard-working man of even temperament. But the fact that he supervises the work of a gang composed mainly of Mexicans, and may have incurred the enmity of some one or more of them, is advanced as a possible theory for the attempted assassination. Another theory is that Goodwin was the victim of highway robbers, but this latter theory is thought to be improbable by those who argue that is not likely that highway robbers would attack a man dressed in the clothes of a working man and carrying a dinner pail. Still another theory advanced is that Goodwin may have been mistaken for some other party whose life was sought by black handlers. Goodwin lived with his family at 931 East Routt Ave. and is said to have two sons now serving in the United States Army. Goodwin is said to have been about 45 years of age. Pueblo Chieftain – March 18, 1918 – Police May Soon Solve Goodwin Murder Riddle – At about 2 o'clock this morning a force of detectives working on what is believed to be a good clue gathered by the police during the evening, went to 429 S. Santa Fe Ave. where they took into custody two Mexicans. These two men gave the names of Gongine Iozanos and Sipiene Rogo. Two revolvers were found in their possession, but neither of the guns tally with the caliber of that with which Goodwin was shot. These two men together with another man known to the police are said to have been employed on Goodwin's gang at the screening plant of the smelter. The three men recently were laid off, and are said to have taken exception to being laid off. The police say that they have been able to establish the fact that after leaving the smelter last night Goodwin was known to have been seen in the company of three men at the corner of B and Spring Street. It appears that the four men had walked down Santa Fe Ave. to B St. which is two blocks beyond the place where the two were arrested last night. It is further said to have been shown to the police that leaving B St. and Santa Fe Ave., Goodwin went west along B St. toward Spring Street, and that he was still accompanied by the three men who had been seen with him at Santa Fe Ave. and B St. At 2:15 o'clock this morning the third man giving his name as Felis Ionio Bonthalea was arrested. All are held by the police for investigation. Zora Gregovitch, residing at 17 Block Y is said to have heard the shots which ended Goodwin's life, and soon thereafter heard the footfalls of a man running past her residence. Ella Bush, of 32 Block X is said to have seen a man running south past her house just after the shooting of Goodwin. She described the fleeing man as being short, heavyset, and wearing dark clothes. A boy by the name of Lowmiller is said to have picked up a cartridge for a 32 automatic revolver, also a small metal pencil near the place where Goodwin was discovered lying on the ground in the middle of the street following the shooting. A man residing at 36 Block X is said to have reported to the police that he had observed two men standing in an alley in the rear of his premises each night for three nights prior to Saturday night. All of the above locations are in the immediate vicinity of the shooting. James J. O'Brien, a city firemen, Captain of the company No. 1 station at the city hall, who resides at 33 Block X, and who was the one who first notified the police of the shooting says that his wife observed a man walking back and forth in front of the O'Brien residence just a little time prior to the shooting of Goodwin. Goodwin was hit five times, the wounds being in the stomach, head, neck, an arm and a leg. The bullet which struck him in the head produced a fearful wound in the back of the head, and it is believed that this was the first bullet fired by the assassins. It would appear that after Goodwin had fallen from the wound in the head the murderer or murderers deliberately stood over the prostrate form of the victim and almost riddled his body with bullets. While the appearance of the ground at the place where Goodwin was found shows little evidence of a struggle, there are two circumstances attending the case which are said to mystify those who are endeavoring to bring to justice the assassin. It is said that there are marks on Goodwin's throat and neck which would indicate that he had been choked, and it is also stated that Goodwin's right leg is broken and that the break was not caused by the impact of the bullet against the bone. How he sustained the marks on the neck and a broken leg in addition to his other mortal injuries is difficult to explain unless he engaged his assailants in a desperate struggle. Goodwin, who was 44 years of age, leaves to mourn his death a widow and five children, Homer, formerly employed at the steel works here is a member of a motor mechanic's company U. S. Army located at Camp Hancock, Georgia. Another son, Kenneth, is serving at base hospital, Camp Seiver, South Carolina. Three children, Grace, Walter, and Ralph reside at the family home. W. C. Goodwin was an honored member of the Masonic fraternity being a member of the Marble, Colo., Lodge of that order. He was also a member of the Cardiff, Colo. Lodge of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen. The soldier sons of the murdered man had been advised by telegraph of the fate of their father, but it is not yet known whether their military duties will permit of their coming home for the funeral services. Mr. Goodwin had been in the employ of the Pueblo smelter of the American smelting and refining company for the past 10 months and was considered by his superiors at that plant to be a capable man of genial disposition. The remains of the murdered man were removed to the Davis-Vories Mortuary where the coroner's inquest will be held at 4 o'clock this afternoon. Pueblo Chieftain – March 19, 1918 – The remains of Wilbur G. Goodwin will be sent this afternoon at 1:45 o'clock to Delphos, Kan., accompanied by his wife and three children. The two older sons, who are in the Army, will meet the family at Delphos for the funeral services. A delegation from the local B. of L. F. & E. will escort the body from the Davis & Vories Chapel at 12:30 to the Union depot. The services at Delphos will be under the auspices of the Masonic Lodge in that city.

Gorsich, Fred
Fred “Fritz” Gorsich - Pueblo Chieftain - September 13, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1972 - 1973 - Ills Overshadow Major Developments - They Made a Difference - Fred "Fritz" Gorsich - In 1973, the same year Fred Gorsich retired from the mom-and-pop grocery business, a young Puebloan sensed the changing trend in neighborhood stores and Loaf 'N Jug was born… Upon his death in 1994, Fred Gorsich made headlines by bequeathing his then $3.7 million estate to Pueblo Community College - one of the city's biggest gifts and the seed for the college's model Gorsich Advanced Technology Center. Yet for the friendly grocer known as "Fritz," the real mark left behind was his old-fashioned neighborhood mercantile, which he reluctantly agreed to close in 1973 at age 62. For many years, the grocer at 1200 S. Santa Fe held its own in the face of mounting competition from supermarkets and convenience stores. However, unable to find a buyer, the aging Gorsich finally agreed to close. As his gift to PCC demonstrates, Gorsich wasn't opposed to advances - he just loved the role of neighborhood grocer. "I thought I didn't know anything else and I hated to close the business that had been my life," he said. Later, as the last surviving member of the family, the unmarried Gorsich opted to share his estate with the entire Pueblo community, and also send a message about the importance of education. Gorsich's family started Gorsich Mercantile in 1900.

Granillo, Santos Margarito II

Granillo, Santos Sr.
Santos Granillo Sr. - Pueblo Chieftain - May 16, 1991 - Santos Granillo Sr.: A man of tradition with a heart of gold - Santos Granillo Sr. . . . area leader dies at 78 - Family and friends of Santos Granillo Sr. gather around casket at his Salt Creek home . . . the family wanted to have an old Mexican funeral for the former Charro rider - Santos Granillo Sr. died in Denver on Sunday, but he came home Wednesday to his Salt Creek "ranchito" to spend a last night at home with family and friends . It seemed fitting the man who many credit with preserving and nurturing Mexican customs in Pueblo would, in death, be the subject of one last ritual - the Mexican wake. As Granillo's body rested in a coffin bearing an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, dozens of people recited the rosary in the living room which had been converted to a chapel. On Tuesday, as she and her children were making final arrangements for the wake, his wife, Margarita Resendez de Granillo, explained the family's passion for respecting her husband's final wishes. "He was old-fashioned people," she said. At a glance, the whirlwind of activity that preceded the private funeral service at the Granillo home on the northern edge of Salt Creek, may have appeared to be the preparation for one of the many festive weddings which have taken place there in the past. There were animals to be slaughtered to feed the nearly 200 descendants of the family patriarch who would soon arrive. Already, a freshly butchered goat was roasting on an outdoor barbecue pit. The 78-year-old Granillo and his wife were parents to 10 sons and 6 daughters. They had 85 grandchildren, 75 great-grandchildren and five great-great- grandchildren, "we think," said one daughter who was writing an obituary for the newspaper. In one corner of the yard, some of the grandchildren were laying sod - a project their grandfather had started two days before he suffered the massive heart attack that ended his life. On Saturday, he had gone to Denver to participate in a dance sponsored by a group of charros - Mexican wranglers - known as the Division del Norte. Sunday morning, he became ill and was taken to a Boulder hospital where he died just after noon. Senora Granillo sat quietly inside her home talking to a reporter and some of her children about her husband. In many ways, he had been a typical Mexican immigrant to Pueblo. He was born in Durangay Mexico in the midst of the Great Revolution that would eventually send his family north in search of a better life, far away from the civil war. He was 3 months old when he and his family first crossed the border into the United States. After working in the fields of the St. Charles Mesa, Granillo eventually found permanent work in the coke ovens of the steel mill. For 34 years he fed the fiery ovens until his retirement in 1974. During his early years at the mill, Granillo bought the home at 1219 Roselawn - a house many say was the first permanent home built in the Mexican settlement known as "Saladado" which has become known as Salt Creek. But mostly, his wife and children talked about the generosity of their "man who made steel and had a heart of gold." To them, his name "Santos" was more of a title than a name. He was named Santos because he was born on Nov. 1 - All Saints Day. They talked fondly of their annual pilgrimages to Mexico during the Christmas season. Granillo was proud of his new country and eventually became a citizen, but never forgot his poverty-stricken motherland. He would gather used clothing from the "segundas" (second hand stores) of Pueblo and sew them into mattresses to smuggle them across the Mexican border. Villagers looked forward to the arrival of the Granillos and their yearly bounty of "new" clothing from the north. There were other stories about the hundreds of immigrants, mostly young men, who would jump from the trains as they passed under the bridge near Granillo's home. "Prieta (a name of affection he called his wife), here come some men in need of food," Granillo would tell his wife. The men were fed at the family table and then Granillo would take them to the ranches on the mesa in search of work. Once, when his wife said she was afraid the men might rob or hurt them, he told her, "There's nothing to fear. I burned a candle for the Virgincita (statue of the Virgin Mary). Nothing will happen to us. Frequently, his dining room table became a classroom where Granillo would teach the newcomers how to say English words, "like eggs, milk, baloney, salt and flour, so they could go to the store and buy the things they needed," said his wife. "He didn't graduate from school, but he was as smart as a lawyer," said his daughter, Margaret. "He was self-educated and could read and write in English and Spanish." Another time, someone abandoned some dogs near their home. Senora Granillo questioned the wisdom of his feeding them. "If somebody's hungry, I'll feed them - even if they're a dog," he said. "Besides, if I don't feed them, they'll eat the chickens." During his nearly 50 years in the home at the edge of Colorado Highway 227, the youngest of 11 Granillos children were born. Three different times, cars left the roadway and careened through the walls or roof of the house. The car that flew through the roof, crushed a bed and narrowly missed striking three children sleeping on the floor. Another car knocked a gas range from the kitchen into the next room. On less than an acre, Granillo held up to 10 horses, and a variety of other farm animals, including goats, sheep, pigs, cows, chickens, rabbits, geese, peacocks, and doves. On pay day, Granillo bought hay and grain for the animals before he bought groceries for the family, said his son, Gabino. None ever went hungry. But Granillo was more than a good provider and neighbor. "To me, he was the greatest man I ever knew," said Tony Ayala, who lives across the road from the Granillos. "Everybody loved him. He was more like a leader for the community here. People looked up to him for advice." Ayala fought back tears as he talked about his lifelong friend. It was in the role as community leader, that Granillo may have made his greatest contribution to Pueblo. He was a staunch supporter of such institutions as the Pueblo Charro Association, Fiesta Day at the Colorado State Fair, and the Pueblo Bikers Association Toy Run and Toy Bowl. When the charros were close to losing the land their arena is built on, the Granillos made and sold tamales to make the monthly payments. For more than 20 years, the family built floats and rode their horses in the State Fair and Fiesta Day parades. They have the trophies to prove it. His son, Santos Jr. was one of the early presidents of the bikers and helped establish the Toy Run and Toy Bowl. The one year that the family's float failed to win a trophy in the Fiesta Day Parade, Granillo told his daughter, Consuelo, not to be disappointed. "I don't make a float to win trophies," he said. "I make floats to show my trophies - my children and grandchildren." Funeral services will be held for Granillo at noon Friday at Mt. Carmel Church in the Grove. The bikers will lead the procession from the church to Rosemont Cemetery after a brief last visit at the home. At the cemetery, the charros will lead a riderless white horse to the gravesite. On the saddle of the symbolic mount will be Granillo's sombrero, his chaps and a sword. "We were blessed by God that we had him for so many years," said his senora.
