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.Β  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.Β  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.Β  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.Β ' 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.Β  The police put hand cuffs on me and dragged me out to the car and held me there for about 35 minutes.' Β 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.Β  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.Β 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.Β  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,Β  and gotten a job at the Walsenburg Lumber store in November 2009.Β  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.Β  ' 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.Β  Then Armando and one of his friends went out front and talked for a while.Β  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.Β  ' He was supposed to be on medication for that but between his bills and child support he couldn' t afford the meds,'  Anderson explained.Β  ' 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.Β  Petkof was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the CBI investigation.

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.

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!

Sgt. David Garcia - Pueblo Chieftain - August 23, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1966 - 1967 - Vietnam Takes Toll on Pueblo's Sons - ' ¦Young people shopping at Pueblo music stores were buying the new "Help" album by The Beatles. Yet, they were also buying Army Sgt. Barry Sadler's "Ballad of the Green Berets." Even in pop music, it was impossible to ignore the growing war in Vietnam. The war was on the front pages of The Chieftain and Star-Journal every day, complete with combat photos and maps where the heaviest fighting was taking place. More chilling were the small stories that were cropping up showing the smiling faces of young Pueblo men, in Army caps or Marine helmets, along with the news they had been killed in action. Over the next two years, 16 Pueblo men would be killed in action: Cpl. James Spinuzzi, Sgt. Alex Montoya, Sgt. David Garcia, Pfc. John Robbins, Pfc. Pete Martinez, Pfc. Phillip Wiley, Pfc.

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.

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 Β½). 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.

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.

JR was born in Trinidad May 26, 1939, to Jack and Dorothy (Louden) Gilstrap. He grew up on the Louden Ranch east of Branson. 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.

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.

Katheryn 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' daughtersΒ - Rebecca, 10, Katheryn, 8, and Leslie, 7Β - 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 adultsΒ - 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.

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.

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' daughtersΒ - Rebecca, 10, Katheryn, 8, and Leslie, 7Β - 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 adultsΒ - 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.

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 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.

Anna (Tay) Catherine Green - Moscow-Pullman Daily News - June 8, 2007 - Anna "Tay" Catherine Green of Ellensburg, Wash., went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, May 30, at her current residence in Moscow, Idaho. Tay was born in Walsenburg, Colo., on May 7, 1921, to Elizabeth and Clinton Johnson. When she was a child, her younger brother Jack could not say her name correctly. He called her "Tay." The nickname stuck, and she went by Tay the rest of her life. She was raised in Walsenburg where she met and married John Albert Green II. Tay, her husband and her children - John, Daniel, and Susie - moved to Moscow, Idaho in 1953 where Michael was born. She raised the four children, worked as a housewife, and taught second grade. After receiving her master's degree in business at the University of Idaho, she taught college classes there. In 1968, she and her family moved to Ellensburg, Wash., where her husband was Dean of Education and there she taught some classes at Central Washington University. Tay had a great sense of humor and enjoyed a good joke, even if it was on her. She loved bridge, music, sewing, camping, biking, golfing, walking, cooking, fishing, and most of all spending time with her family. Her family was the most important thing in her life. She hosted regular family events in Ellensburg and at their cabin in Montana. It was not unusual to find sleeping bags of all the children and grandchildren spread out over the living room and dining room on Christmas morning, Thanksgiving, and numerous other times during the year. Tay is survived by her four children, Dr. John Green III, Dr. Daniel Green, Susie Eggebraten, and Michael Green; 11 grandchildren, Dr. Sinikka Green, Anna Todd, Jeff Green, Ellu Green, Drew Eggebraten, Lolly Green, Lucas Green, John Eggebraten, Elly Jones, Rosi Green, and Elan Green; and two great-grandchildren, Ivan and Makiah Todd.

Green, George
George Green - Denver Evening Post - October 9, 1899 - May Charge Murder - The Death of George Green Said to Be Caused by a Blow From Andy Thornton - The death of George Green, colored, of Denver, last Friday may cause a charge of murder to be brought against Andy Thornton, colored. Green, who was a hod-carrier living at 2546 Market street, died in the state insane asylum at Pueblo presumably from injuries received from a fall. Many of his friends assert, however, that he died from the effects of a blow upon the head that fractured his skull, his assailant being Thornton, and that from the effects of this blow Green first went insane and then died. He went to police headquarters some time in July suffering from a large scalp wound. He said he had been assaulted by a colored man named Andy Thornton. He was sent to the county hospital, where he remained until two weeks ago. Note: George Green was buried in Roselawn Cemetery in Pueblo, Colorado. His age was listed as 33.

Green, William
William Green - Denver Evening Post - August 4, 1897 - From All Over Colorado - Trinidad, Aug. 4 - The preliminary trial of Juan Duran, another of the men charged with the murdering of Green and Kelly, was begun yesterday before Judge Milliken. It is reported that yesterday confessions were secured, corroborating Archuleta' s confession, from Lucia Duran, the wife of the defendant at today' s trial, and also from Luz Archuleta, who previously confessed. Nothing but the bare fact of their confession can be learned. Denver Evening Post - October 29, 1899 - A Victim of Circumstantial Evidence? - ' ¦ Nestor Martinez, who figured conspicuously in the sensational murder of Detectives William Green and William Kelley near Trinidad in 1897, has applied for a pardon. Green and Kelley were sent out by the Colorado Cattle Dealers' association to capture a gang of Mexican cattle rustlers in Southern Las Animas county in October of that year. The detectives were shot and killed when they ran up on the band, and their bodies were thrown into a huge bonfire and cremated. Macedonia Archuleta was arrested a few days later on suspicion of knowing something about the murder. He confessed and implicated Martinez with himself in the crime. Martinez then turned state' s evidence and charged ten other Mexicans besides himself and Archuleta as being concerned in the murder. About half of them were convicted of first degree murder and were given life sentences. Martinez, who, it was afterwards proven, had less to do with the murder than any of the others, got a sentence of sixteen years. In view of his efforts to convict the gang, Martinez thinks he should have received a much lighter sentence, and he asks for either a commutation or a pardon. There is a chance that he will get the former. Rocky Mountain News - August 15, 1896 - Released From Custody - Trinidad, Colo., Aug. 14 - In the justice court this morning, Joseph Taylor and Encarnacion Sisneros, on the motion of the district attorney, were released from custody. It will be remembered that about three weeks ago these men were arrested on the charge of having been the murderers of Billy Green, the deputy sheriff, who is supposed to have been murdered during the early part of the summer in the mountains about twenty miles from this place.

Griego, Benjamin
Benjamin Griego - Trinidad Times Independent - February 20, 2009 - Accessory, Tampering Charges Bound Over in Shooting - Charges of being an accessory to a crime and tampering with evidence were bound over February 13 in District Court for Samson Lopez, 30. The charges were part of an alleged double homicide at the Hollywood Bar the morning of November 20 that claimed the life of Benjamin Griego, 21, and Clifford Maes, 31. In addition to Lopez' s charges, Ron Martinez has been charged with first-degree murder and two drugs charges after allegedly killing Maes, with Sandoval being held on evidence tampering and first-degree murder charges in Griego' s shooting. Lopez and Sandoval' s tampering charges are the result of the Trinidad Police Department' s (TPD) pulling from Trinidad Lake the guns allegedly used in the shooting. As reported by TPD Detective Phil Martin at last Friday' s hearing, the guns recovered from the lake were a Glock 9mm and a Springfield .45. The 9mm had been allegedly used by Sandoval to kill Griego, while the .45 was allegedly used by Martinez on Maes. The drugs charges against Martinez came from a search conducted of his room at the 705 W. Baca St. residence he shared with Sandoval that yielded 15.025 ounces of a substance that field tested positive for cocaine. The chronology of Lopez' s alleged acts of accessory to the alleged crime, as recounted at the preliminary hearing, began shortly after Martinez shot Maes inside the Hollywood Bar. Lopez, at the bar with his wife, reportedly fled the bar once the shooting started. Martin testified that Lopez' s wife had told him of seeing Sandoval outside the bar as they ran toward his vehicle; he was reportedly shooting toward the ground in the general area where Griego' s body was later discovered. The Lopezes then reportedly got into Sandoval' s car, with Samson Lopez in the back, his wife driving and Sandoval riding shotgun. They then went to Sandoval and Martinez' s residence, retrieved from Martinez the gun used to shoot Maes, dropped Lopez' s wife back at their residence and then Sandoval drove himself and Lopez to the west side of the dam crossing Trinidad Lake. Sandoval threw the 9mm on the south side of the dam, and Lopez threw the .45 to the north side. Both weapons were later found on the rocks below, neither having been thrown far enough to reach the water. Following the alleged attempt at disposing of the weapons, the defendants and Lopez' s wife allegedly fled north, to Denver but were arrested November 25 in the Denver suburb of Lakewood by Denver Metro Police following a joint effort by the TPD, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, and Denver Metro Police Department. The defense claimed that Lopez had assisted in the alleged attempt to conceal the crime acted under duress, and that he had told police that Martinez had threatened to shoot his wife in the face should he refuse assistance, a statement Martin confirmed. ' This court heard testimony that at no point did Lopez have an opportunity to remove himself from the situation,'  Public Defender Cobea Becker said. Judge Claude Appel replied that the court did not take duress under consideration during preliminary hearings. Also raised by the defense was a motion to dismiss the charges against Lopez based upon alleged prosecutorial misconduct by the TPD regarding whether he had been denied his right to legal counsel. According to various in-court testimonies, the TPD had interviewed Lopez without the presence of his attorney, Becker, as she waited to speak with him in another room at the police station for about an hour. Whey Martin and District Attorney Frank Ruybalid testified that Lopez had been read his rights, Becker replied, ' It' s irrelevant to the issue at hand; the issue is the Fifth Amendment right to counsel.'  Lopez' s bond was set at the statutory level for a class five felony, $5,000 cash or surety. A motions hearing in the case was set for March 27. Trinidad Times Independent - February 20, 2009 - Sandoval Hearing Pushed Back - The preliminary hearing of Lukus Sandoval, 27, was delayed for another month on Tuesday when the court granted the defense counsel' s request to continue the case until later. At the request of the defense counsel, the preliminary hearing was to have been combined with a bail hearing. Sandoval, 27, has been held on charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, and tampering with physical evidence in the shooting death of Benjamin Griego, 21, outside of the Hollywood Bar the morning of November 20. The motion to continue the hearing was made by defense attorney Glenn Davis, who informed the court that district attorney Frank Ruybalid had contacted him at about 11 a.m. that morning about a piece of evidence intended for presentation at the preliminary hearing, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Davis received a copy of the recording about one-half hour before the preliminary hearing. The evidence, a taped interview with Sandoval' s codefendant, Samson Lopez, was planned by Ruybalid to be aired for the court in an abridged, four-minute version of an original recording tat totaled about an hour-and-a-half. ' My objection is based upon I don' t think a four minute redacted version of a one hour, thirty-eight minute recording would be an appropriate way of proceeding,'  Davis said. ' I would request that the entire recording be played.'  Judge Leslie Gerbracht granted the request for continuance on account of the seriousness of the charges and the increased levels of proof required for the bail-related aspects of the hearing. The hearing was rescheduled for March 20. Gerbracht instructed the counselors to, from then on, bring all requests to her with more time to spare. Security at the district courtroom was heavier than usual for the preliminary hearing, with deputies using a metal detection wand on visitors before allowing entrance.

Katherine was born Sept. 29, 1917, in Wichita, Kan. She was the daughter of Katherine and Otto Hund of Garden City, Kansas, and the widow of James Edward Griffin, former Trinidad mayor and city manager. She is survived by her son, James Edward Griffin II, and his wife, Annibet Griffin, of Glenwood Springs; and her daughter, Sally Griffin McCaughey, of Arcata, Calif. She leaves behind her long-time friend and caretaker, Marilyn Fredericks of Trinidad; the Fredericks family; and her grandchildren: Jon Griffin of Boulder and Brian McCaughey of Arcata, Calif.; and her great-granddaughter, Jozie Griffin of Denver. Katherine will always be remembered as a nice person, a good friend, an athlete and an artist. A motto for her life: ' To those who are given much, much is expected.'  In keeping with this motto, she was a weekly visitor to the elderly at the Trinidad Nursing Home and worked in the hospital gift shop. When friends were going through hard times, Katherine was always present with a coffee pot and words of support accompanied by her spirit of caring and fun. Katherine enjoyed competition. As an 18-year-old tennis player in Wichita, she won a trophy in that city' s tournament. In Trinidad, she became an excellent bridge player. She won many Duplicate titles and other bridge tournaments at the Trinidad Country Club. Her fun, competitive spirit was most apparent during a round of golf. Countless summer mornings, as early as 5:30 a.m., Katherine was on the course. She always made it home in time to prepare the family breakfast. Her persistence play paid off. She won the Trinidad Ladies Golf Championship numerous times. Katherine' s final trophy came at age 70 when she repeated once again as the Ladies Golf Champion. Although golf was her favorite sport, she was also fancy ice skater. On cold winters, Katherine was known for flooding the iced-over Trinidad Central Park Pond to create a smooth skating arena where she spent time showing others how to move their blades backwards or land a jump. In addition to her myriad social activities, she always had time for her children and work. In the 1950s, she served as a Cub Scout and Blue Bird leader. In addition, Katherine ran a small sandwich business from her home. Later, she worked as a med-tech at Mt. San Rafael Hospital, as a teller at the Trinidad National Bank and as a salesclerk at Pixie. While golf and social activity was her joy, art was her passion. She was a prolific artist with an eye for beauty. In Trinidad, she studied art under the guidance of Arthur Roy Mitchell. Her numerous landscapes of Stonewall, Fisher' s Peak and local surroundings, as well as the Trinidad Country Club' s painted windows and her pieces of refinished furniture survive today as a testimony to her talent. A Mass for Katherine and a fall memorial service to honor her zest for life and service to others will be held in September. In lieu of flowers, the family asks those who wish to send donations to the Trinidad Ladies Golf Club in care of Mrs. Robert Lamden.

Griffith, Edwin F. (Rev.)
Edwin F. Griffith - Ruidoso News - November 9, 2007 - Reverend Edwin F. Griffith, Beloved Priest, Pearl Harbor Survivor - Edwin F. Griffith, 85, joined the Lord and saints Nov. 7 in Alamogordo. Fr. Ed, as he was affectionately known, was a Pearl Harbor survivor having been on the first ship bombed that fateful Sunday in 1941 USS California. He was only 17 at the time and lived through many harrowing experiences throughout the war. He believed the Good Lord had saved his life because He had a mission for him to fulfill on earth. As a result, Fr. Ed went into the priesthood and devoted his entire life to serving the Lord and his parishioners. Fr. Ed was born in Trinidad, Colorado to Anna Diemer and Edwin Fred Griffith. He was predeceased by a sister, Julia Harnish. His surviving sister, Wilma Garlutzo lives in Denver, Colo. Fr. Ed is survived by a niece, Darlene Garlutzo and her husband, Steve Barnhill of Aurora, Colo.; a nephew Larry Garlutzo and his wife Greta of Centennial, Colo.; a nephew Arnie Alishio and his wife Cheryl of Golden, Colo.; and a nephew, Harvey Harnish and his wife Debbie of Trinidad, Colo.. In addition, he is survived by 13 great nieces and nephews, and his devoted caregiver, Ann Berry. In 1940 Fr. Ed enlisted in the Navy during World War II and participated at Pearl Harbor, in the Coral Sea and Midway Sea battles, and later in the landings at Tarawa. When he was discharged in 1946 he returned to his native Colorado and became active in church work. He joined the Holy Name Society, St. Vincent de Paul Societies and the Knights of Columbus, but always felt he was doing so little for the Lord. While working for Continental Airlines, he made a stop in El Paso and went to St. Patrick's Cathedral. He felt he was too old to become a priest but met a priest who encouraged him to enter the priesthood. He was the oldest member of his class. He entered St. Thomas Seminary in Denver, Colorado, for studies in philosophy in 1958. He was ordained in El Paso on May 20, 1964. His parishes included St. Catherine's Parish in Pecos, Texas, and then he joined the Diocese of Las Cruces. He served as pastor of Holy Cross Parish, Immaculate Conception Church, St. John the Apostle, St. Joseph's and San Isidro. In addition, he served at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Truth or Consequences and Santa Rita Church in Carrizozo. His latter years he spent as an active parishioner at St. Jude Mission Parish in Alamogordo where he proudly gave his ordination chalice to Fr. Wayne Herpin, S.J., Pastor. He developed a close relationship with Fr. Wayne until his death. Until his death, he loved his Lord, his family mountains birds and children. He loved to smoke his pipe and talk about the "days gone bye." His sweet smile and witty humor will be sorely missed by those that loved and respected him. Visitation will be held at 5 p.m. at St. Jude Mission Parish on Sunday, November 11. The Vigil Wake will begin at 7 p.m. followed by the recitation of the Rosary led by the Rosary Society. The Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated by Bishop Ricardo Ramirez, C.S.B. at 9 a.m. at St. Jude Mission Parish on Monday, Nov. 12 Internment will follow at Immaculate Conception Cemetery with full military honors. A luncheon will follow in the Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Renovation and Maintenance Fund at St. Jude Mission Parish would be greatly appreciated. Father Ed was always concerned about St. Jude Mission Parish and it was his wish that it be restored to its original beauty. Funeral arrangements under the direction of the Alamogordo Funeral Home.

John grew up spending summers at Harvey Cedars, Long Beach Island, N.J., with his grandparents. He loved the annual trips to the ocean and was an accomplished sailor, boater, water-skier, crabber and fisherman. His family moved several times as he was growing up, but the Jersey shore was always his firm base. He graduated from high school in Barrington, Ill., and moved to several states following his passion to learn, save the environment, and help people while earning an associate degree. He was a jack of all trades holding several jobs including: custodian of a chemical plant, manager of a bowling alley and an apple orchard, nuclear power plant worker, office worker for a nonprofit organization, bartender, Realtor, caretaker for developmentally disabled and finally, a prison guard in Canon City. His generosity, helpfulness and free spirit were curbed suddenly when he was hit in an auto-pedestrian accident and suffered a severe head injury in December of 1994. John was not expected to live, but he did and led a much slower life until a stroke on April 7, 2012, robbed him of his strength. He declined rapidly from that point until his death. John was preceded in death by his beloved grandmother, Effie Griggs; father, George W. Griggs; and sister, Janice Dean. He is survived by his mother, Dorothy; and sister, Nancy Griggs, both of Modesto, Calif.; wife and friend, Debra Griggs; sister-in-law, Terena (Kent) Terry of Harrison, Ark., brother-in-law, Herb Dean of Anaheim Hills, Calif.; and several nieces and nephews.

Rose enjoyed her grandchildren, who could do no wrong, and was thoroughly pleased when her granddaughter, Megan presented her with two great- granddaughters, Annabelle and Gianna Baca. She was also very excited to get a new great-grandson, Riley Lopez, when Jarrod married his mother, Kristie. These kids brought her many hours of joy at a time when Parkinson' s disease was robbing her of so much. Rose held many jobs in her career. She retired in 1989 from Transamerican Title where she was a title examiner for many years. Rose also loved to go to Cripple Creek with Ann Skaggs and they had such fun going to all the casinos and gambling away our inheritance! Another passion for Rose was her Broncos and Rockies. She never missed a game. In good years and in bad, she never gave up on her teams. When asked in the hospital what she thought of Tim Tebow, she wrote down on her board: ' Such a nice young man, (he) shouldn' t pass.'  She kept her sense of humor to the end and tried making her last days easier for all her family. We will all miss her dearly. We take comfort in the fact that she is now with the one and only love of her life, her husband, Oscar. We would like to thank the staff on the fifth floor at Parkview Medical Center. They were so kind and compassionate. We would also like to thank everyone at Sangre de Cristo Hospice. Without them, we don' t know what the last few weeks would have been like. They made Rose' s passing very peaceful. In lieu of food and flowers, please make a donation to Dream Weavers or Sangre de Cristo Hospice, either directly or through the funeral home. Funeral Mass, 10:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 6, 2012, Christ the King Church. Under the direction of George McCarthy Funeral Home.

Grubbs, Emily
Emily Grubbs - Pueblo Chieftain - January 28, 1997 - Police Say Emily Grubbs Died of Strangulation - The body of a young girl found near the Nature Trail Sunday afternoon has been identified as that of Emily Grubbs, 15, an East High School freshman. Her partially-clothed body was found by two young fishing buddies about 1:30 p.m. Sunday on the bank of the Arkansas River, behind the 700 block of Elmhurst Place, about two blocks away from the West Fourth Street Bridge. On Sunday, Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said the body had bruises, scrapes and possible drag marks on the legs, arms and face, but there were no other signs of trauma. An autopsy performed Monday afternoon indicated the girl died of strangulation, Kramer said. It was unconfirmed whether she had been sexually assaulted - pending the results of further and specific tests, he added. "The death is being investigated as a homicide and a routine part of a homicide investigation is taking toxicology and sexual-abuse tests," Kramer explained. "Hopefully, we'll have the toxicology results back by the end of the week, but the sexual-abuse tests may take longer." It was unknown how long she had been dead before Lucas Drummond, 12, and Brian Samson, 13, found her body on Sunday. "We're trying to narrow the time frame," Kramer said. Emily's parents, Elmer and Laurel Grubbs, filed a missing-person report with the Pueblo Police Department at 10 a.m. Sunday morning. Their daughter had failed to call for a ride home from an arcade Saturday night. According to the report, her father dropped her off at Pueblo Amusement Center, 1012 W. Abriendo, at 8:45 p.m. Saturday and planned to pick her up at 10 or 11 p.m., police said. "From what I understand, her parents exhausted all their efforts in trying to find her before they called us Sunday morning," said Deputy Chief Charlene Graham, head of the department's investigations unit. Detectives spent Monday interviewing relatives, friends and other possible leads, but had no suspects as of late Monday. "We're just trying to retrace her steps and figure out what happened," Graham said, adding that it hadn't been determined whether the girl was killed where her body was found or elsewhere. "From the marks on her body, we know she was dragged at least from the trail to where she was found. Other than that, we just don't know," she said. On Monday, teachers and friends spoke highly of Emily and her accomplishments as a vocalist. Emily's family moved to Pueblo from Arizona in 1995, when her father took a job at the University of Southern Colorado as an assistant professor of electronics-engineering technology and computer information. He also serves as department chair. Emily had attended Heaton Middle School during her eighth-grade year when she participated in the Eighth-Grade Girls Chorus and the All-City Middle School Choir. She also emceed the school's talent show, in which she sang a duet. "She was a good student and a very good musician," said her middle-school vocal-music teacher Vanessa Foderaro. "Music was a love of hers. She sang soprano and played piano. She loved musicals and she would try to go to as many musical productions as she could. Music was just a natural talent she had." Foderaro said that, as far as she knows, Emily's life revolved around the Mormon Church, school and singing. "She was very involved in her church and she was very well-liked," Foderaro said. "She was a warm, loving, sweet kind of person who always tried to help others." Bette Lunn, vocal-music teacher at East High School, echoed Foderaro's sentiments. "She was an outstanding singer," she said. "She was the only freshman from East to make this year's All-City High School Choir. ' ¦ Not only was she talented, but she was nice, and easy to get along with." According to Mrs. Lunn, Emily sang a solo in the choir's Christmas concert and was planning to try out for the school's upcoming musical. Foderaro said: "It's pretty sad ' ¦ it's devastating for something like to happen to such a nice girl." Anyone who may have information regarding this incident should call Crime Stoppers at 542-STOP. Callers remain anonymous and may receive a cash reward of up to $2,000. Pueblo Chieftain - February 16, 1997 - Memories of Emily - Emily, shown at a friend's house, had a large circle of friends, her parents said. Among the photo albums, certificates of achievement, report cards and other keepsakes of the late Emily Grubbs, a letter from her music teacher seems to crystallize the moment. "I know that she is in a choir of angels now," the East High instructor writes to Emily's parents, part of a longer, uplifting letter that, along with the other memorabilia, provides a small glimpse of a life lost too young. Elmer and Laurel Grubbs say their memories of Emily, their religious faith and an outpouring of support from the community helps keep their large family going in the wake of the 15 year old's strangulation death on Jan. 25. The couple wants to make sure details of Emily's life are not forever clouded by the circumstances of her murder, including the persistent rumor that some members of a teen-aged "Gothic" group were somehow involved. In an interview with The Chieftain and also through a prepared statement, the parents said little about the murder probe. Instead, they focused on Emily's young life. Emily herself was not a member of any Gothic or "vampire" group, they stressed. She was active, made many friends, went to church every Sunday and was a top student. "She was fun," her mom, Laurel, summarized, struggling to hold back tears as she finished going through the collection of keepsakes the family has started to compile in remembrance of Emily. The Grubbs also issued a plea for anyone with firsthand information about the murder to contact police, who have said they lack enough evidence to proceed with an arrest. In a specific message to young people, "Please remember that a killer is on the loose. This person could kill someone else, maybe another friend," the couple stated "If you know something and don't come forward then you could be responsible for someone else dying." Ever since the Grubbs family moved to Pueblo from Tucson, Ariz., about 18 months ago, Emily, one of nine children, enjoyed the kind of social and scholastic success that she exhibited in Arizona, her parents said. (At a memorial service for Emily in Tucson, about 200 of her former classmates attended, said Grubbs, a University of Southern Colorado computer science professor.) She awoke by 6:20 a.m. each weekday to attend Mormon religion class. At East High School she posted top grades. And she liked music, poetry, drama, animals and the outdoors. She was the lone freshman on the All-City Choir. "She liked the creative activity type of things," her father said. She also liked roller-skating and, more recently, going with friends to the Pueblo Amusement Center arcade, the place she was last seen before her death. Mrs. Grubbs said the family is troubled to think the arcade's business would drop as a result of publicity surrounding Emily's death. "We do not hold the PRC responsible in any way," she said. Emily had built a large circle of friends, as the parents would be reminded at her memorial service in Pueblo, which was well-attended. "She had friends at all of the high schools, which we were amazed at," Grubbs said. Her acquaintances included some Gothic members but she was not a participant in the group, the Grubbs said. And her closest friends were not linked to any such groups, the parents added. "She occasionally wore some black clothing, like most teen-agers we have met, but that was definitely not her style or choice," the parents said in the prepared statement. "Even on that Saturday night," they said, "she was wearing a black sweater with two vertical white strips, blue jeans and black and white tennies. She had on no white makeup or other paraphernalia associated with the groups." At the same time, "we also note that even in fringe groups, most of the kids are good kids," the Grubbs' statement said. Later, the family urged area youngsters to "listen to their parents" and use caution: "Be careful of all of your decisions; where you go, who you go with, what you do. Any bad choice can have dire consequences. While it's true that good choices can also lead to death, you increase the probability of something bad happening when you make even one bad choice." In moving forward in the wake of Emily's death, Elmer Grubbs said the family finds solace in religion: "We have tremendous faith. That has sustained us through this crisis. We know Emily's spirit is alive.'  Pueblo Chieftain - July 30, 1999 - Thompson Pleads Guilty - Teen-Ager Sentenced to 22 Years for Murder of Emily Grubbs - Adam Mark Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to the 1997 murder of a local 15-year-old girl, and was sentenced immediately to 22 years in prison. Thompson, 17, of Pueblo pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for the Jan. 25, 1997, strangulation death of Emily Grubbs. Her body was found the following morning near the nature trail along the Arkansas River below the 700 block of Elmhurst. Thompson's decision to plead guilty came about suddenly earlier this week, an abrupt turn in a case that had been slow coming to court. The court's decision to accept the plea agreement weighed mostly on the Grubbs family's acceptance of the arrangement, District Judge Gerald Marroney said. Marroney said he puts the wishes of the victim's family first in considering plea agreements because they are the people most affected by the crime. At the hearing, in a prepared statement, Emily's father, Elmer Grubbs, said the family wanted the court case to be resolved. "We have no objection to this plea agreement. We are not a vindictive family. We have forgiven Adam for this terrible deed, and nothing can bring our daughter back to us," he wrote. "Secondly, we are happy to let Adam have the opportunity to plead guilty. It is much more satisfying to us than to have him not admit the crime, and then to be convicted without ever admitting guilt, or even worse, get off altogether. "Thirdly, we feel that 22 years in prison is an appropriate sentence. We hope the parole board will be very careful about an early release, however, and will carefully consider elements such as remorse, his potential to make a positive contribution to society, his attempts at trying somehow to make up for this crime, and whether or not he would pose a threat to others after he is released. Grubbs said his family hopes "the thought of being in prison until the age of 40 would be a deterrent to other youth who might be tempted to kill someone." He decried the violence in society today, "particularly the problem of youth killing each other. ' We wonder if Adam saw violent R-rated movies, listed to violent lyrics in popular songs, or played violent video games. "We wonder at the reason that he felt he needed to portray himself as a Gothic or vampire. Where did the idea of that lifestyle come from?" Grubbs, who now lives in Arizona, asked other parents to be cautious of their children's lifestyles and "at least attempt to provide a moral compass for their children to follow." He thanked law officers, particularly police detectives Mike Downs and Elias Manzanares, along with prosecutors Bob Case and John Rice, for their "relentless search for evidence in this case and their pursuit of the truth. Speaking directly to Thompson, Grubbs said he hopes Thompson realizes the severity of his crime. "Emily is one of the nicest, kindest, gentlest people that we ever knew. She always talked highly of you to us." "She was virtually defenseless and certainly was innocent of any crime that would warrant you taking her life," he said. Grubbs said his daughter's death has left an irreplaceable void in his family's life. She was one of nine children in the Grubbs family, and was a student at East High School when she died. "For the rest of our lives, at random moments while waking up, working, walking down the street, hearing people sing, or whatever, we will have thoughts of Emily and what could have been. You have caused all of this pain." But he said the family is comforted by its deep faith in Jesus Christ and the knowledge that "someday, we will see and hold our dear Emily in our arms again." Thompson, in turn, asked his attorney, public defender Doug Wilson, to read a statement he had prepared. "Every second of every day, I think of Emily. The hours are passed thinking of her family, Mom, Dad, brothers and sister," Thompson wrote. Thompson said Emily's death was unintentional. He was arrested in April, some 27 months after Emily died, when the grand jury indicted him for first-degree murder. He was a suspect early in the investigation, reported to have been with Emily late in the evening before her body was found. But for more than two years, police were unable to find physical evidence or witnesses who would support the rumors that spread through the community hours after the slaying. Not until the grand jury investigation was there enough evidence to charge Thompson, Case said. "The police did an investigation, (they) never gave up. But they were hampered in this case by a lack of physical evidence and uncooperative witnesses," he said. Case said a single Crime Stoppers' call gave police a window to break the case. "Then, they were able to go back to those witnesses. Some still stonewalled. Some said they didn't want to talk. Some said they would be unwilling to talk unless they were brought to court," he said.

Guggenheim, Ben
Ben Guggenheim - Pueblo Chieftain - February 15, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1912 - 1913 - Sinking of Titanic Touched Pueblo - The biggest movie in history was made in 1912. They just didn't know it yet. On April 16, 1912, a major headline on the front page of The Pueblo Chieftain reported: "Thirteen Hundred Go Down When Steamer Struck by Iceberg" "Titanic on Maiden Voyage Sinks in Midocean - Only One-Third Saved." Puebloans read that "some 1,306 people, it is feared, sank to death early yesterday some four hours after she crashed into an iceberg. The mammoth steamer Titanic from Liverpool to New York on her maiden voyage sank to the bottom off the New Foundland banks. Of the 2,000 persons, some of them of worldwide prominence, only 675 are known to be saved." The headlines would continue for months as the investigation into the luxury liner catastrophe unfolded. Puebloans would soon learn that one of the prominent passengers lost had a local connection. Ben Guggenheim, one of the younger sons of Simon Guggenheim, who established the Philadelphia Smelter & Refining Company, was among the victims who went down with the Titanic. In the 1998 blockbuster movie, "Titanic," Ben Guggenheim was featured for his gallantry, walking his mistress and her maid to a lifeboat, while choosing to give up his life on the sinking ship in style. He exchanged a life belt for his best evening wear. With his valet at his side and cigar and brandy snifter in hand, the mining and smelting tycoon was quoted as saying: "We've dressed up in our best and are prepared to go down like gentlemen." Guggenheim no longer was living in Pueblo at that time. He had lived here years earlier when the Guggenheims' Philadelphia Smelting and Refining Company prospered during the 1870 to 1900 period. As a Puebloan, Ben Guggenheim was considered a colorful, if somewhat tawdry figure. He caused a local scandal when as chief of staff of the company, he often visited brothels and even took one diamond-adorned madam to the Grand Opera House.

After graduating from Hoehne High School, Dolores lived in Denver where she served as secretary to Monsignor John Ebel, a writer/editor at the Catholic Register.

Dolores was a life-long New York Yankees fan and an avid follower of professional tennis.

The family would has deep gratitude for Dr. Loretta Conder and the tremendous staff at Miners' Colfax Medical Center for the compassionate care provided during her illness and also, for allowing us to remain with mom in the hospital while she was a patient there. We had so much more quality time with Mom due to your efforts and your support of a cohesive family-health care partnership. Since before they were married, Dad' s song for Mom was I' ll String Along With You: ' You may not be an angel; ' cause angels are so few. But until the day that one comes along; I' ll string along with you.'  Now, Dad has his angel and she will forever watch over us all. A rosary recitation will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 17, and the funeral mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, May 18, at St. Joseph' s Catholic Church in Springer followed by a private interment at a later date.
