Maes, Clifford
Clifford Maes - 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.

Frank Magor - Rocky Mountain News - December 17, 1896 - Frank Major At Rest - Central City, Colo., Dec. 16 - The body of Frank Major, who died at the insane asylum at Pueblo on Monday last, arrived in this city this morning and will be buried from the family residence tomorrow morning. Mr. Major was struck on the head with a falling rock in a mine several years ago and since that time has been subject to fits of temporary insanity, but was always controlled before he did any harm. About two weeks ago he was attacked by a fit of this nature and knocked down his son on Main street. The officers put him in jail and in a couple of days he was all right again. He was sent to Pueblo for treatment, where he died. He was well known in Gilpin and Clear Creek counties. Note: This man is noted in a number of other newspaper articles as Frank Magor, not Frank Major.

Magrath, Christopher
Christopher Magrath - Huerfano World Journal - January 27, 2011 - Human remains found near Cuchara - Last Sunday, a group of lion hunters near Sulpher Springs stumbled across human bones, and alerted the Huerfano County Sheriff Department. The way the story is told, the men lost sight of their dogs while hunting, and whistled them back. One of them returned lugging a human skull. Searchers returned to the area and found a femur and a glove in the general area, but with two feet of snow on the ground, decided to wait until spring to return. The body is believed to be Christopher Magrath, 28, of Tulsa, OK, who disappeared on November 6, 2009. Magrath' s truck was soon found by hunters, and it contained a suicide note. Magrath' s body was not found, despite a five-day search using aircraft and cadaver dogs. Magrath' s family had been contacted and was on the scene during the initial search in 2009. They stated that Magrath had sent several notes to relatives indicating he had come to the mountains to die and that he would make sure his body was not found.

Mallon, Jack
Jack Mallon - Pueblo Indicator - January 18, 1930 - Double Murder And Suicide - C. W. Shellabarger, cattle buyer, shot his wife Mrs. Jennie Shellabarger to death, and then clubbed the life out of his stepson, Jack Mallon, 15 years old, at the family home at 2814 Eighth avenue, about 6:00 o' clock A.M. January 13. He then committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. He left several notes partly explaining his horrible acts. The murdered woman formerly resided in the 1300 block Abriendo avenue, Bessemer, where she lived with her parents. The family moved to Canon City where the mother, Mrs. Mary Wygant, had a position in the matron' s home in the state penitentiary. Shellabarger is supposed to have been very despondent over a loss he sustained in cattle deals of late. He brought in Texas cattle which could not stand the colder weather here and he sold them at a loss, it is stated. After killing the mother and her son, Shellabarger phoned the police station that a murder had been committed at his house, and when officers John Starasinich and Dewey Roberts arrived at the house they made the gruesome discovery. The Wygant family was well known and highly respected in Bessemer, and moved to Canon City about 20 years ago.

Marold, Roswitha
Roswitha Marold - Huerfano World Journal - January 20, 2011 - Plane goes down in Huerfano County - Huerfano and Custer County Search and Rescue personnel and Civil Air Patrol Squadrons were summoned out around 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon after receiving information that an airplane may have crashed in one of the counties. A 1997 model Piper Turbine Malibu, bearing registration number N727MC, was on a flight from Phoenix, Arizona to Pueblo, Colorado. While cruising at 20,000 feet, ATC (Air Traffic Control) received a distress call from the pilot stating he could not hold altitude and was descending over the Sangre de Cristo mountains about 50 miles west of Pueblo. The Malibu was losing altitude at a rate in excess of 1600 feet per minute. Denver ATC tracked the Malibu and lost radar contact when the aircraft descended below its range. ATC computed a speed, heading and descent trajectory and identified four possible areas for a crash, two in Huerfano County and two in Custer County. According to Capt. Robert Pruiksma with Custer County Search and Rescue, terrain in the search areas averaged 10,500 feet and was heavily wooded. An aircraft could be swallowed up in the trees and be very hard to see. Searchers were further inhibited by snow showers, fog and low visibility. Kirtland AFB in New Mexico launched two Blackhawk helicopters and Civil Air Patrol was able to provide one airplane to aid the search, however, the visibility was too low for object identification. However, N727MC was equipped with an ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter) that since 1973, has supplied location information for downed aircraft. The helicopters were able to provide coordinates for the signal and direct ground crews to the area. Poor weather required the search to be called off for the night and resumed the next morning. At approximately 3:30 p.m. on Monday, while Huerfano Search Coordinator Deputy Joseph ' Gunny'  Albano worked with teams on the Huerfano County locations, the aircraft wreckage was located by search personnel just into Huerfano County one mile east of Blueberry Peak. According to Lt. Col. Mike Daniels, a spokesman with the Colorado Wing of the Civil Air Patrol, rescuers found the aircraft wreckage containing the pilot/owner of the plane, 66 year old Dr. Michael Welton of Waterloo, IA and his passenger Roswitha Marold, a retired businesswoman also from Waterloo. Both occupants were pronounced dead at the scene, and the severity of the wreckage, poor weather and remote location required waiting another day before the bodies could be removed. Dr. Welton was an experienced pilot holding a Private Pilot license with an Instrument Rating. Weather at the time had caused two other aircraft to deviate from the same course and make precautionary landings at nearby airports. Severe ice is being looked at as a contributing factor. While the Malibu is equipped for flight into ice conditions, no aircraft is authorized to fly in severe conditions. Search personnel credited the ELT signal with aiding a quick find. ELT' s have been required on most aircraft since 1973, following an Alaska accident in which two congressmen disappeared and the wreckage has never been found. The accident is being investigated by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) and the final results will not be available for several months.

Marquez, Antonio
Antonio Marquez - Colorado Springs Gazette - July 12, 2005 - Fourth Judicial District prosecutors on Monday charged a Pueblo County man with first-degree murder in the death of a man who was shot and burned in eastern El Paso County. Ramiro Castillo Vargas, 18, faces life in prison or the death penalty if convicted in the death of 24-year-old Antonio Marquez of Colorado Springs. Vargas is being held without bail. Vargas will return to court Aug. 5 for a hearing in which a judge will decide whether prosecutors have enough evidence to try him. Prosecutors also charged two other members of the Vargas family with accessory to murder. Brenda Lee Vargas, 38, of Colorado Springs and Moses Vargas, 39, of Alamosa are accused of concealing evidence. Judge Thomas Kane on Monday lowered Moses Vargas' bail to $85,000 from $500,000 after Vargas' lawyer argued it was excessive. Sarah Christensen, who asked that bail be lowered to $10,000, called witnesses who described Moses Vargas as a devoted father of four and a respected Alamosa businessman. Deputy District Attorney Robyn Cafasso, however, said Moses Vargas discouraged witnesses from talking to police about the death of Marquez. She said he might interfere with evidence gathering or threaten witnesses if he bonds out. Cafasso said Moses Vargas has family in Mexico, making him a flight risk. She asked Kane to keep bail at $500,000. A bond reduction hearing for Brenda Vargas, whose bail is $500,000, is expected to be scheduled next week. Meanwhile, the El Paso County Sheriff' s Office is seeking Ramiro Vargas' cousin, Gerald Albert Vargas, 18, of Colorado Springs. He is wanted on suspicion of first-degree murder in Marquez' s death. Marquez' s burned body was found June 14 along South Blaney Road near Colorado Highway 94. Gerald and Ramiro Vargas knew Marquez. Investigators haven' t said which is the alleged shooter or if both are suspected of shooting him. According to an arrest affidavit, several people were with Marquez in a Dodge Durango when he was killed. An argument about money broke out, and he was shot several times while sitting in the back seat. The next morning, at Brenda Vargas' Lassen Drive house, Moses Vargas helped dispose of clothes worn during the killing, authorities said in the affidavit. He threatened to kill anyone who talked, the affidavit says. Brenda Vargas helped Moses Vargas attempt to destroy evidence and lied to investigators about her role, the affidavit says. Colorado Springs Gazette - November 21, 2006 - Pueblo Man Convicted in Slaying - Teen Guilty of 2 Felonies in 2005 Shooting - A Pueblo man was acquitted of murder Monday, but a jury convicted him of helping plan and carry out the slaying. Ramiro Vargas, 19, was convicted of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and being an accessory to murder, both felonies, in the June 2005 shooting death of Antonio Marquez, 24. Because jurors found the conspiracy was a crime of violence, he could face up to 48 years in prison. Jurors deliberated about eight hours Friday and Monday after the week long trial. ' I kind of knew that he wouldn't get convicted of murder,'  said Marquez's mother, Norma Ramirez. ' But at least he didn't walk.'  Marquez was shot numerous times, allegedly over drug deals. His body was doused with gasoline and set afire off a rural road in eastern El Paso County. According to El Paso County sheriff's investigators, Vargas was in the vehicle when another suspect pulled the trigger. Vargas helped destroy evidence and burn the body and tried to buy witnesses' silence with bills covered in the victim's blood, investigators said. ' The jury worked really hard on this case,'  said Deputy District Attorney Robyn Cafasso. ' This verdict is absolutely proper.'  Cafasso said it was too early to decide what prosecutors will ask for at Vargas' sentencing. Vargas' cousin, 19-year-old Gerald Vargas, is accused of begin the shooter. His trial is scheduled for March. There already have been two trials in the case: Gerald Vargas' mother, Brendalee Vargas, was convicted of being an accessory and sentenced to 90 days in jail; Saul Grajeda, 19, was also convicted of being an accessory and is scheduled to be sentenced in January. Ramiro Vargas, who is being held without bond at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center, is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 21.

Martinez, Andrea S.
Andrea S. Martinez - Colorado Springs Gazette - February 17, 2004 - Two Die in I-25 Crash - Victims Were in Car Going Wrong Way Near Pueblo - Two people heading the wrong way on Interstate 25 died instantly Monday when their pickup slammed head-on into a tractor-trailer about 9 miles north of Pueblo. Santiago G. Vigil, 27, of Denver and his passenger, Andrea S. Martinez, 28, of Lakewood were traveling south in the northbound lanes about 3:05 a.m. near milepost 111, south of the El Paso-Pueblo county line. Much of their Ford Ranger was crushed. Vigil and Martinez weren' t wearing seat belts and were thrown from the truck. The tractor-trailer driver, Rodney Smircich, 41, of Walsenburg wasn' t seriously injured. He was wearing a seat belt. When Smircich saw the truck coming toward him, he slammed on the brakes, swerving to the right, said investigators with the Colorado State Patrol. The truck veered to its left and into the front of the tractor-trailer. ' The (pickup) didn' t seem to slow down at all,'  said state patrol Sgt. Luke Armstrong. Both vehicles were estimated to be traveling 68 to 75 mph. If drivers saw the pickup going the wrong way, no one called 911. The only person who called was a witness to the crash. It happened near a curve, and the witness told authorities it initially was difficult to tell which lane the truck was in. Investigators don' t know where the pickup got on the northbound lanes. ' We didn' t see where they would have crossed the median,'  Armstrong said. ' We believe they were in that lane for a while.'  He said alcohol was found at the scene. Authorities are waiting for test results to see whether Vigil was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The crash shut down the northbound lanes until about 8:30 a.m. This is the first deadly wreck this year in Pueblo County in which someone was driving the wrong way, investigators said.

Martinez, Annette
Annette Martinez - Colorado Springs Gazette - December 12, 2005 - Man Arrested in Pueblo Stabbing - A man was arrested Saturday night in the fatal stabbing of a convenience store clerk about 16 hours earlier, Pueblo police said Sunday. The clerk, Annette Martinez, 35, was attacked during a robbery at the 7-Eleven store at 804 E. 4th St. in Pueblo, police said. Freddie Arturo Delariva, 29, was arrested just before 7 p.m. on suspicion of first degree murder. He is being held in the Pueblo County Jail. He has past convictions in Colorado for theft and escape. Martinez' s body was found after a patrol officer was flagged down at 2:52 a.m. by customers who had entered the store and didn' t see a clerk. At least part of the attack was caught on videotape by a surveillance camera, police said. Before the assault, two other customers came into the store and appeared to see the suspect leave, police said. Anyone with information about the case should call Pueblo Crime Stoppers at 719-542-7867. Colorado Springs Gazette - December 17, 2005 - Slain Mom Never Slowed Down; Pueblo Clerk Was Working Extra Shift to Buy Gifts for Kids - Pueblo - No one ever accused Annette Martinez of being idle. She would work the graveyard shift at 7-Eleven, then go home and drive her boys to school. She collected scrap metal and old newspapers and sold them for cash. In her spare time, she volunteered. She umpired softball games and refereed basketball and slept when she had the rare opportunity. Slow down, her mother admonished. Get some rest. Martinez, 35, never would. Particularly not with Christmas approaching. She needed extra money for presents for her boys - Brandon, Justin and Christian - the center of her world. On Dec. 9, Martinez picked up an extra shift at 7-Eleven. About 10:30 p.m., she changed into her uniform. At 2:51 a.m., police found her stabbed to death in the back room. The news quickly spread through this city of 105,000: "Coach Annette", as countless kids knew her, was dead. Pueblo has homicides - an average of six a year - but few that stunned, angry residents find as shocking and cold blooded as this one. When Martinez got the 7-Eleven job several months ago, her mother, Patty Hijar-Converse, felt uneasy about her daughter working alone at night. "If you get robbed, let them have whatever they want," she warned. "Nothing is worth giving your life." Martinez didn' t like working alone, either, her sister, Alicia Martinez, said, but she needed the money. Born and raised in Pueblo, Martinez left high school before graduation, although she later earned her general equivalency diploma, her mother said. Then she got pregnant and her focus turned to financial survival. Although she really wanted a full-time job with benefits, she settled for what she could find. When she wasn' t working, she volunteered as a coach. That too, was about survival; it was about keeping her boys out of trouble and keeping her eye on them. "She was just so dedicated to her boys," city recreation supervisor Dave Hernandez said. Friday, Dec. 9, was a special day for the Martinez/Hijar clan. Martinez' s cousin was home on leave from Iraq, and Annette organized a party. Everyone ate and laughed and mingled. By 10:30 p.m., the party was winding down. Martinez got ready for work. Her grandfather, Frank Hijar, meant to say good night. He meant to tell her to be careful on the icy sidewalks. But when he looked for her, she was gone. At 2:36 a.m. Saturday, a man entered the store as several customers left, as the store' s surveillance tape showed. He walked out of view of the camera, then Martinez came from behind the counter and walked off-camera also. Police don' t know what he said or did to draw her out, Pueblo Deputy Police Chief John Ercul said. But they know the two ended up in the back room. They know Martinez fought hard; she had cuts on her hands from trying to ward off the knife before she was stabbed in the neck. The man returned to the counter, where he rifled through some items, then left. At 2:50 a.m. Saturday, two women walked into the 7-Eleven. When they didn' t see a clerk, they called 911. A police officer found Martinez dead in the blood-drenched room. As the news spread Saturday, police received a tip about a man named Freddie Delariva, who has convictions for theft and escape. They won' t say what they were told, but when they went to his house at about 7 p.m., they said, Delariva ran and hid before they arrested him. He' s being held at the Pueblo County Jail on $1 million bail. Martinez' s family has never heard of the man, but as far as they' re concerned, her killer was the devil himself. Now a city reaches out to one of its families: the house is crammed with flowers this week. There are the Christmas decorations Martinez put up - stockings strung on the railing and a tree loaded with blue tinsel. But no gifts - Martinez hadn' t had the time or money to go shopping yet. The family clusters downstairs, answering the constantly ringing phone. They relate stories of Martinez as a child, defying her older sister. "She said, ' I know my rights, and you' re not the boss of me,' " Hijar said, then laughed softly. Visitors stream through, weeping. "I couldn' t stand it if I had to bury one of mine," one woman murmured. "You would have to tranquilize me." "I' ve got to do it," Hijar-Converse said. "I' m the mama. Mamas do this." She watches over her daughter' s youngest, 10-year-old Christian, who speaks of his mother in the present tense. "She tucks me in and cuddles with me," he said, describing the nightly routine. "Then she goes to work." What happened the last time Martinez went to work is something they try not to think about. Alicia Martinez says the thing is, her sister' s life was a struggle -- to make money, to care for her boys. "For the end to be a struggle as well," she said, "that hurts."

Martinez, Anthony
Anthony ' Tony'  Martinez - Pueblo Chieftain - May 11, 2012 - He was a vets' vet - GI Forum commander remembered for dedication to fellow veterans - Anthony ' Tony'  Martinez had a big heart for veterans and as commander of the Pueblo chapter of the American GI Forum, he worked to help fellow veterans get the services they needed. That was the assessment of friends and family members who came to the Pueblo County Courthouse on Thursday to hear the commissioners proclaim Anthony Martinez Day. Martinez died last Friday at age 62. ' Tony was one of those inspiring guys who led by example,'  said Nick Romero, vice commander of the Pueblo chapter. ' It was important to him that our government and our communities do right by the men and women who serve their country.'  Martinez was born in Walsenburg, but lived most of his life in Pueblo. He served in the Army from 1967 to 1971, including a tour in Vietnam. He was elected commander of the Pueblo chapter in 2011. Lucille Martinez, his widow, said those days in Vietnam were an important part of his life. ' That' s why he was so committed to helping veterans,'  she said after Thursday' s ceremony. ' It' s easy for veterans to get pushed to the side and ignored. Tony didn' t want that to happen to anyone.'  Salvatore Torres, a former Marine and member of the Pueblo Veterans Ritual Team, said he fondly remembered Martinez encouraging veterans to come out of the crowd during Veterans Day parades to join in the procession. On hand for the ceremony were Martinez' s three daughters ' ” Antoinette Ruiz, Andrea Gomez and Kelsy Lovato, along with a godson, John Martinez. Commissioner Jeff Chostner, a retired Air Force colonel, said he' d met with Martinez just last week, hoping the ailing man would be able to attend Thursday' s ceremony. ' Tony gave me a thumbs-up, that he would be here, but sometimes fate intervenes,'  Chostner told the audience. District Attorney Bill Thiebaut also was at Thursday' s event and presented the family with a certificate of appreciation for Martinez' s service. A memorial will be held at 10 a.m. today at the American GI Forum, 125 Hector Garcia Place, under the direction of Angelus Chapel.

Her younger siblings were twins who died during their birth, along with her mother Edisia. When Fannie was a young girl, she traveled with her father and siblings by train from Walsenburg to Delta, Colo. There her father and siblings worked in the fields, as did Fannie, eventually. They resided in Delta and Olathe, Colo., before settling in Montrose, where she met and married Joe C. Martinez in 1939 at St. Mary Catholic Church.

She volunteered at the MADA as a cook and dishwasher, and was an American Red Cross Volunteer at Montrose Memorial Hospital for ten years. She was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church. Fannie also enjoyed camping, fishing and hunting, and liked rock hunting during those times. She loved nature and it was important to her to walk everywhere she went, especially to the Pavilion where she enjoyed lunches with friends. Fannie loved her family and friends and always wanted them near her. She welcomed everyone to her home for meals and was known and appreciated for her tortillas.

Karl Martinez died Dec. 29, 2010, at Parkview Medical Center, where he had been treated since November 2009. Martinez's relative and caregiver, Michael Richard Esquibel, 44, was indicted on charges of negligent serious bodily injury to an at-risk adult, third-degree assault on an at-risk adult and two counts of neglect of an at-risk adult. Esquibel is currently wanted on a warrant for failure to appear at a court hearing. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said Wednesday that Martinez's death is still under investigation and that his exact cause of death is pending results of an autopsy. Charlene Graham, chief of the Pueblo County Sheriff Office's law enforcement bureau, said Wednesday investigators will wait for autopsy results before deciding what action, if any, investigators will take in the case. Esquibel and Martinez were cousins. On Nov. 5, 2009, medical crews were called to Esquibel's East Side home after neighbors witnessed him carrying a sheet-covered body to a vehicle. The body was later identified as Martinez, who was found weighing only 60 pounds at the time. He also had a broken femur, severe bed sores, was severely dehydrated and had a "weak pulse, kidney failure, extreme malnourishment," the indictment said. Subsequently, the court appointed Martinez's legal guardianship to the ARC of Pueblo. Stephanie Garcia, executive director of the ARC, called Martinez "a fighter" but "he just couldn't fight anymore." Pueblo Chieftain - January 5, 2011 - Karl Martinez passed away on Dec. 29, 2010, after a lengthy struggle. Karl was born in Pueblo on April 17, 1963.

Viola A. Martinez - Huerfano World Journal - September 7, 2012 - Viola A. Martinez of Walsenburg passed away August 22, 2012. She was born in Walsenburg, CO in 1927 to Adelina and Cecelio Martinez. She was preceded in death by her parents Cecelio and Adelina Martinez, daughter Shirley Hernandez, husband John Martinez, sisters Teresa Trujillo and Dolores Valenzuela, brother Ernest Martinez and brother-in-law Pete Trujillo. Survivors include daughter, Angela Treece; grandchildren Shirley (Kino) Treece-Herrera, Stacie Arambula, Melissa Torres and Frank Hernandez and great-grandchildren Peter Herrera, Tony Herrera, John Rodriguez, Angelica Herrera, Marisol Herrera, Tyler Arambula, Celene Torres and Christian Torres. A private memorial service was held Monday, August 27 at Church of God & Christ Jesus Walsenburg. Viola Martinez was a strong woman who led a full life with many interests and hobbies. Born in Walsenburg in 1927, Viola was the oldest of five children. Due to her father's illness, Viola lived with her grandparents, which is where she acquired her love for animals and country life. Although she did not reside in the same home as her other brother and sisters, the family was still close and they spent many hours growing up together. When Viola was 19, she met and later married her husband John Martinez. After their marriage, they purchased land in the outskirts of Walsenburg and began their small ranch. During her marriage to John, she had two children, Shirley Ann and Angela. Viola had many tragic events occur in her life. One of them was the death of her daughter Shirley Ann in a terrible car accident in 1972. Her husband John passed away before his time in 1982 due to illness. She also survived the passing of all of her brothers and sisters. Despite these events, Viola still remained true to her faith in God and never let anything waiver her belief. After John passed away, Viola continued to maintain their small ranch with help from her remaining daughter Angela, her son-in-law at the time, John, and her brother-in-law, Pete. Although Viola worked extremely hard at the ranch, she still found time to visit sick friends in the hospital and nursing homes. She also spent time cultivating a wide variety of hobbies and interests. She had an innate ability to turn rocks into works of art. To Viola, a simple rock could be transformed into a dog, a turtle, or some other animal. She was able to make elaborate pictures out of scraps of cloth and landscapes of scenes with just rocks and paint. She had a gift for free form painting and sketching as well. Visitors to her house were amazed at her creativity. She was a lively grandmother and would visit her local grandchildren and great-grandchildren, often. They spent time together playing games, learning how to cook her magnificent dishes, hearing stories, making paper dolls, and roaming the hills of her property. In her later years, Viola became extremely interested in genealogy. She spent hours researching her heritage and traveling to various libraries in order to find out more about her ancestors. Unfortunately, she was not able to continue her research due to the loss of her eyesight. The last few years of her life, Viola struggled with many health issues. Despite these issues, she still held on to her strong belief in God. In the end, despite her strength and her beliefs, her medical ailments overcame her. Viola passed away peacefully after a heart breaking stretch of pain and illness on the morning of August 22. Viola will always be remembered for her strength, creativity, intelligence, and strong spirit. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Mather, Charles
Charles ' Chuck'  Mather - Rocky Mountain News - August 31, 2006 - A Colorado Department of Transportation worker was killed Wednesday morning when a tractor-trailer plowed into a road surfacing crew on Interstate 25. Charles "Chuck" Mather, 34, of Beulah was pronounced dead at St. Mary Corwin hospital in Pueblo Wednesday. He had been working for CDOT since June 2005. His wife, Leena, 39, is expecting their first child in November. Four other people, including another CDOT worker, were also injured in the accident, which closed northbound I-25 at Walsenburg for much of the day. Traffic was diverted at Walsenburg and I-25 had been expected to be reopened at 9 p.m. Wednesday. The incident happened at 10:45 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-25, at mile marker 72, two miles south of Colorado City. Robin L. Kirkland, 35, of Pueblo, was driving a white 2000 Freightliner tractor-trailer loaded with 20 tons of rock. He was in the passing lane northbound on I-25 when he rear-ended a white 1996 Toyota pickup truck driven by Bette J. Waitman, 68, of Cheyenne. The semi, while partially on top of the pickup n veered into the right lane, hitting Mather, who was operating a rototilling machine. Another CDOT worker, Gerald "Jerry" Buchanan, 48, of Boone, barely escaped by leaping off the side of the roadway, falling about 50 feet into a creek bed below. "He has two shattered ankles as the result of jumping from a bridge to avoid the collision," said Stegman. Buchanan was listed in fair condition at Peakview Medical Center Wednesday. Three other members of the CDOT crew were unhurt. Waitman and her husband, Jerry J. Waitman, 70, suffered minor injuries and were treated at St. Mary Corwin hospital. "We haven't had one of our employees injured or killed (in a cone zone incident) since December 2004," said Stegman. "It's unique for a car to crash through a work zone." "This is another needless tragedy on Colorado's highways," said Bob Torres, CDOT regional director. "These crashes are preventable if drivers would just slow down and use extra caution when driving near highway workers. The people working on our roadways are mothers, fathers, brothers and friends. Today is a very sad day knowing that an unborn child will never know its father." Mather is the 24th CDOT employee killed in a work zone since 1951. It was not known Wednesday whether speed, alcohol or drugs were factors, or whether Kirkland, who was also treated for minor injuries at St. Mary Corwin hospital, would be charged with any violations. Randall and Kathleen Engel, of Beulah, are listed as the owners of the semi, according to Colorado State Patrol spokesman Gilbert Mares. Randall Engel said Wednesday night that the tractor-trailer was being driven from Trinidad to Beulah, but declined to comment about the accident, other than to say Kirkland had worked for him for a long time, and that he "was a very good driver." Wednesday, Mather's family was struggling to deal with the loss. "I'm still trying to come out of the shock," said Mather's father, Larry Mather, 60, of Pueblo. "I didn't expect it, especially losing his mother a year and half ago. She had bad lungs, so we knew that was coming. But this was 100 percent unexpected." Chuck Mather, born in a suburb of Detroit, grew up in Pueblo, graduating from Coney High School in 1989. He worked for a small drywalling company for a few years before it went out of business. He then worked for M. Cline Construction in Pueblo for 12 years before taking a job with CDOT last year. "He loved his job with CDOT," said his father. "He loved the people he worked with. It was the best job he had. He liked the people and the way they did business." Larry Mather said his son was aware of the dangers of his job. "It was something that he always worried about because of the drivers," said his father. Chuck Mather married five years ago, and was anticipating the birth of his first child. He enjoyed hunting elk, deer, antelope and pheasant with friends. "He was a good son and a good brother," said Larry Mather. "He was an incredibly hard worker and he was more than well-liked." Services are pending. In addition to his wife and father, Chuck Mather is survived by two sisters, Louanne Mather of Mount Clemens, Mich., and Cheryl Mather of Pueblo, and a brother, Matthew Mather of Eastpointe, Mich. He was preceded in death by his mother, Phyllis Mather, in May 2005.

Mattie, Albert
Albert Mattie - Trinidad Times Independent - August 30, 2011 - Albert Mattie, Store clerk, World War II veteran - On Nov. 8, 1925, Albert Mattie was the ninth of 10 children born to Giuseppe and Jennie Mattie at the family home in Segundo. Albert departed this life to enter the kingdom of God on Aug. 24, 2011. Together with his sister, Lucy, his brother, Joe Jr. and his sister-in-law, Clara, many nieces and nephews and his many friends are left to cherish his memory. Preceding him in death were his parents, Giuseppe and Jenny, and his siblings; Mary, Rose, Arthur, Josie, Anne, Ernest, and Sam. The following brothers- and sisters-in-law have also gone before him; Bob Tapia (Rose), Pino Carnelli (Josie), Howard Birchler (Anne), Frances Mattie (Sam), and Conrad Pelletier (Lucy). Except for his service to his country in World War II where, because of his size, he was initially a turret gunner on a bomber in the Army Air Corp and later, a supply clerk, Albert lived his entire life in Segundo. There he cultivated many lifelong and lasting friendships and etched his place in the memory and hearts of many through his community involvement, sense of humor, genuine concern for others, and his overall good nature. Since 2009, Albert has lived at Trinidad Nursing Home where his personality continued to shine through, endearing him to the staff and other residents. For more than 50 years, Albert worked at the Segundo store, first for the Hadad family, then for his dear friend, Nick Ringo Jr. Even after his retirement he was known to frequent the store on a regular basis to ' supervise as necessary'  and help make the sausage. A devout Catholic, Albert' s participation in and ownership for the St. Ignatius Church in Segundo was unparalleled. He is best remembered for his elaborate Christmas decorations, singing in the choir with his friend, Ercelia, and his general propensity to take charge of church business to ' get things done.'  Albert was an alumnus of Primero High School and a great supporter of anything black and orange. With some of his friends he formed the original ' booster club'  and actively supported the Bulldogs in many wild and creative ways. In later years he directed that same enthusiasm toward the Kennedy Community Center and the many programs it offered, especially ceramics. As a confirmed bachelor, his ability to dance the jitterbug and ice skate with his friends at the Primero ponds was surpassed only by his ability to cook pasta and bake. Albert was known to always try a new recipe and test it out on his family at the many holiday dinners he prepared for them. However, he is best remembered for his baking, especially traditional Italian holiday cookies and wedding cakes. In the final analysis, nothing better can be said in summation of Albert' s life; except that he was a faithful and dutiful servant of God, and a friend to everyone. Funeral Mass was Monday, Aug. 29, 2011, at Holy Trinity Church. Entombment followed at the Trinidad Catholic Cemetery with graveside services conducted by the U.S Army Honor Guard. Active pallbearers were Jimmy Ringo, Gary Ringo, Danny Mattie, Dennis Pelletier, David Mattie and Jack Potter. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Trinidad Area Catholic Community, 235 N. Convent St., Trinidad, CO 81082. Arrangements under the direction of Comi Funeral Home.

The place grew, people bought lots and built summer homes, until a population of several hundred people can be accredited to the place now during the summer months.

McAvoy, John E.
John E. McAvoy - Denver Evening Post - January 1, 1899 - Passed Out - John McEvoy' s Meteoric Career Ended in a Mad House - The life story of John E. McEvoy was a brief chapter of ups and downs, luck and ill luck, fortunes made one day and lost the next. His ignis fatuus was the turf and John McEvoy followed it with a passion and faithfulness above that for woman. McEvoy died yesterday at the state insane asylum at Pueblo, an occupant of a cell that to his mind was encrusted with diamonds. Through all his hallucinations he clung to the vision of one horse, the fiery, seemingly untamed Cap Reese, with which in his gem-walled room he won the Futurity, and Suburban and came under the wire first in the Brooklyn handicap. It was Cap Reese that made him lose his mind and Cap Reese was the indirect cause of his death. The proudest of his string of racers, the brown horse played him false at last and McEvoy never recovered. For two years he has been confined in the asylum for the insane. Known from Chicago to San Francisco, McEvoy was a type of the West. The news of his death, while not unexpected, will cause recollections of the man to return to every horseman from the great lakes to the Pacific coast, for on every track of prominence he had been a familiar figure. His home was in Denver and here his friends and former partners remain - Bob Austin, John W. Murphy, Joe Gavin, Bat Masterson and Frank Dale. He was never deserted by them, they made frequent trips to Pueblo, saw that his family needed nothing and are now rendering him a last service in making arrangements for his funeral. John Murphy is the man who made McEvoy and this is the story of how it was accomplished: ' He struck Denver in 1879,'  says Mr. Murphy, ' and making his acquaintance I introduced him to Matt Finehart, who was then managing my place, Murphy' s Exchange. Needing some one to operate my roadhouse at the Soda Springs, four miles from Leadville, I offered the position to McEvoy and it was accepted. He had come to Colorado from Omaha, where he had been engaged in his occupation of a steamfitter. He was born in Rockford, Ill., in 1850, and learned his trade in Chicago. After managing the roadhouse for a year or so he went to the Coeur d' Alene country and Salt Lake City, but shortly afterward returned to Colorado. His start with horses was made in 1883 when I placed him in charge of a famous horse I then owned, Chantilla, who won the derby at the first year of racing at Overland Park. The horse made the fastest mile ever recorded at the track when a 2-year-old, making it in 1:42 on the half-mile track. I sold Chantilla afterward in New Orleans. When 13 years old the horse was entered in a race for aged horses at Sheepshead and won it. In his day but one or two horses could beat him. The well-remembered Irish Pat did it once in Chicago when by a fraction of a nose he won the race. The judges took twenty minutes to decide it and I lost $25,000 as a result of their decision. McEvoy went to Nashville and other places in the South with my stable and, in all, worked for me up to 1889 when I gave him a ten years' lease on the exchange. It was that that made him. Up to that time he had no money. Many a time I purchased meal tickets for him and practically kept him. Frank Dale took the lease with him and both got 25 per cent of the receipts. In less than three years he was rated at $110,000, the major portion of which was made in 1892. It was when Denver was the liveliest city in the West and one month' s profits alone footed up to $120,000. In addition to 25 per cent of the receipts McEvoy was paid $7 a day for dealing. Gambling was summarily stopped in Denver in 1892 and McEvoy bought a stable of horses led by Cap Reese, McLight and Mary S. McLight was a royal-bred horse, a chestnut sorrel stallion. He was purchased from Curley Shields of California, a partner of Jim Carlisle, and, by the way, I saw the horse but two months ago. He is 8 years old and is now the possession of a horseman named Randall, who owns ' Ostler Joe. McLight is at Deer Lodge, Mont., where the state penitentiary is located. He is an opium fiend, and has nearly lost all life. His former owners ' doped' him with opiates and he has never recovered from the dose. A strange coincidence is it not, between the horse, half crazy in the shadow of a penitentiary, and its former master insane in an asylum? After he had purchased this string McEvoy went to San Francisco. The stable was secured from Shields and equally interested was Frank Dale. Cap. Reese made more money than did McLight, but the Reese horse was as vicious a racer as any racer I have ever seen. Because of his peculiar temper he had to be saddled in his stall instead of in the paddock. This was against all track rules, and because of it we were barred from many races. McEvoy' s luck began to turn when he went to Chicago in 1893 to see the World' s Fair. The best poker players in the country were gathered there, and it was only natural that the horseman should form one of a pleasant little party. He dropped something like $40,000 in one brief game, but he never whimpered. Everything with him kept going back until he was jobbed two years ago. It was the race of the meet at the Bay District track, San Francisco. Odds were 6 to 1 on Cap. Reese and McEvoy stood to win, should his horse be successful, over $200,000. It was afterwards ascertained that his jockey had been bribed to pocket Cap. Reese by pulling him, but the Denver man was almost ruined when the brown horse finished second with mouth open and bloody. Paresis, softening of the brain, call it what you will, set in. McEvoy was insane. He wrote me a few days afterwards probably the last intelligent words he ever penned. The letter was to the effect that he had been ' jobbed.'  Shortly after that he backed McLight to the tune of $30,000 when any sane man with half an eye could see that the stallion had no earthly chance of winning. Then he would rise early every morning and rouse the stable boys, commanding them to bring forth his horses in order to allow him to inspect them by lantern light. At races he would rush excitedly to the book makers offering to bet $4,000,000 to $20,000,000 on this or that horse. Tom Mulqueen and Wyatt Earp telegraphed to Dale that McEvoy was crazy. Dale went to San Francisco and brought him back. This will be two years ago next February. He left a little property, some cash and a house, where a mother, a sister and nephew reside and from where the funeral will be held. Well, there is not much to add. Cap Reese, McLight and Mary S. were sold for big prices. There was one thing about him - he was a splendid loser. Many a time when he has lost his last cent he would rise from the table with a laugh. On his horses he sunk over $50,000. Poker playing dissipated the rest of his fortune. He was liberal to a fault. He wanted a manager to be always behind him. Strange, too, for he was level headed, a deep-thinker and had a reputation from Chicago to ' Frisco for being a dry joker. May heaven pardon him!'  ' Yes,'  said Bob Austin, ' he was a thorough sportsman, well loved by all his friends. His only fault was that he played off in reckless betting everything he got hold of. Poor John McEvoy! He had a sad ending after such a meteoric career.' 

McClurg, Frank
Frank McClurg - Daily Rocky Mountain News - March 2, 1873 - Pueblo - Poor Frank - In the rush of excitement, and whirl of speculation over corner lots, the unseen agent makes his presence felt now and then by quietly plucking some victim out (of) the motley throng. On Thursday last the mortal remains of poor Frank McClurg were conveyed to their last resting place. Frank was not a distinguished individual; he never occupied offices of official or public trust; he dabbled not in politics, and was insensible to the attractions of Credit Mobiler stock; but the causes and lingering manner of his death are invested with just romance and pathos enough to warrant a passing paragraph. Frank was a cattle herder by occupation, and for months past had been in the employ of Hardesty & Bro., a firm of heavy cattle dealers, who hold forth down the river at or near Fort Aubrey. On the first of December last, Frank undertook to break in one of those excrescences of horse flesh known as a broncho. The brute reared, pawed the air wildly with its fore legs, and then fell over backward, falling upon Frank and breaking his left leg in two places above the ankle. The boys at once made up a purse and sent the wounded man to Pueblo for medical treatment. Arriving here the patient was placed under the care of Dr. P. R. Thombs, a physician of considerable experience and fair reputation. The doctor examined the leg carefully, and finally gave it as his opinion that it could not be saved, and advised amputation at once. Frank protested against this course of treatment, and at first absolutely refused to submit to an operation, saying that he had no desire to live with only one pin, and that he would push on to Denver rather than submit to the knife. The amputation scheme was abandoned, and the doctor devoted his skill to saving the leg; but mortification soon set in and Frank' s case was hopeless. At last, when reduced in flesh and weak from the protracted pain, Frank consented to part with his cherished member; but it was too late. The medical authorities decided that the patient could not survive an operation, and during the last days nothing was done but to lead Frank' s footsteps down to the grave as easily as possible. He died in the possession of all his faculties, and was full of grit to the last. The brothers of the unfortunate man - one of whom resides at Austin, Mo. - were telegraphed, but did not arrive in time to witness the closing scene and Frank breathed his last surrounded by strangers. The funeral services were held by the Rev. E. L. Greene, the new pastor of the Episcopal church, and were listened to with much attention by all present. The parents of the deceased reside in Virginia, and the body, will, doubtless, be sent there for interment.

McKinney, Margaret Ellen
Margaret Ellen McKinney - Pueblo Chieftain - January 21, 1997 - Deaths - Margaret Ellen McKinney, 86, Pueblo, Jan. 19. McCarthy Almost Funeral Home. Pueblo Chieftain - March 4, 1997 - Pueblo Businessman, Leader Dies at Age 84 - Concrete-company founder Owen G. McKinney, whose civic work included helping solidify Pueblo's water supply and also Parkview Episcopal Hospital's funding, died Sunday. He was 84. McKinney's death comes about six weeks after the death of his wife, Margaret Ellen, both of whom enjoyed playing golf and bridge and were active members of Ascension Episcopal Church. Owen McKinney, born in Durango and reared in Pueblo and later Denver, returned to Pueblo at age 33 as a salesman for Johns-Manville. Ten years later, in 1955, he started the concrete-block manufacturing company that bears his name. Family members remember that, as a youngster, McKinney worked as a package-delivery boy for Downtown Pueblo merchants. He went on to graduate from the University of Colorado with a business-administration degree. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy following the Pearl Harbor bombing, and after his discharge, returned to Johns-Manville. McKinney's civic work in Pueblo began to grow in the mid-1960s, at a time when his concrete company was expanding. (In the 1970s, the company would become the eighth such plant in the nation to become fully automated.) In 1963, he served as president of the United Fund of Pueblo. In 1964, he was named to the then-Regional Planning Commission. He also served on the Pueblo Development Foundation and Southern Colorado State College development board. A year later, in 1965, he was elected to the first of three six-year terms on the Board of Water Works, which would become known for its hawkish approach to securing as much water as possible for Pueblo. Friends talked him into running for the water board, McKinney once recounted. Personally, he was reluctant. In the end, he opted to listen to his friends, he said. "I'm glad I changed my mind because it has been a most fascinating and personally rewarding time in my life," he said in December 1983 at his final water board meeting. Board of Water Works Director Alan Hamel, who was hired in 1982, said the water board of McKinney's era implemented a host of other changes to improve the utility. "They initiated the main-replacement program, upgrading of the treatment facility and worked in putting together a business plan and a long-range plan," Hamel said. A plaque honoring McKinney now hangs in the lobby of the water utility's Downtown office building, part of a fountain display designed to honor those who contributed to Pueblo's progressive water system. In the mid-1980s, McKinney was co-chair of a $2.8 million fund-raising drive to benefit both Parkview and St. Mary-Corwin hospitals. McKinney was among Parkview's leading benefactors, serving 18 years on its board of directors and helping strengthen the hospital's finances. Professionally, he served on the board of directors of the Pueblo Home Builders Association, the national Concrete Masonry Association, the Amateur Investors Association and the First National and Park National banks. McKinney served on former Gov. John Love's economic advisory committee and served on the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry board of directors in 1977. He is survived by two sons and their wives, Owen L. and Carol McKinney of Pueblo West, and James R. and Beth McKinney, of Avondale. Four grandchildren and a brother, D. Edward McKinney, also survive. A memorial service is scheduled at 4 p.m. Thursday at Ascension Episcopal Church. George McCarthy Almont Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

McLaughlin, Andrew Thomas
Andrew Thomas "Tom" McLaughlin - Desert Valley Times - July 6, 2011 - Andrew Thomas "Tom" McLaughlin passed away on Wednesday, June 29, 2011. He was born on July 10, 1926 in Trinidad, Colorado. Dad would have turned 85 next week, and although we won't be able to celebrate as planned, we believe he is now enjoying a reunion with Mom that far exceeds anything we could have arranged. Dad's parents were Andrew Thomas McLaughlin and Emma Jenny Repetschnig. He had one sister, Elizabeth Jean McLaughlin, with whom he maintained a special, close relationship throughout both of their lives. Dad was raised in Denver, Colorado and in his youth worked on survey crews and as a laborer on jobs with his father. After completing school, Dad moved to California to work and pursue further education. During WWII, he received a deferment of service due to his mother's illness and subsequent death. He entered the Navy near the end of the war and served for two years. While living in San Francisco, he met St. George native, Leah Bentley. They were married on August 5, 1954. During their first few years of marriage, Mom and Dad moved where his Engineering jobs took them. They lived at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Squaw Valley, Oakland, and finally settled in Fremont, California to raise their family. Dad has always been a hard-worker and committed long hours to provide for his family. He worked for the City of Fremont as a Civil Engineer, and spent his evenings doing tax preparation work on the side. While living in Fremont, Dad made a significant change in his life. He spent several years investigating the LDS church, and with the support of our Mom and some close neighbors, Dad was baptized in 1970. One year later, our family was sealed together in the Oakland Temple. Dad served in various callings in the church and was a stalwart example to those around him. He was honest, filled with integrity, and known for being meticulous, thorough and organized. Every Thanksgiving, Dad drove our family to St. George for the annual Bentley family reunion. Mom always missed her hometown, and in 1979 she and Dad made the decision to move to St. George. While living here, Dad worked for Creamer & Noble Engineers. He was a loyal employee and quietly completed many large projects involving travel throughout the State. He enjoyed his work and didn't choose to retire until the age of 78.

Barett "Bear" McNabb, 33, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on Tuesday. McNabb had been serving with the U.S. Army on his fifth deployment to the Middle East. He had been with the Army for 13 years and most recently was serving out of Fort Lewis, Wash. He was the son of Steve and Georgia McNabb of Salida who flew to Dover, Del., on Wednesday to accompany his body back to Fort Carson before returning to Salida to make arrangements, according to Arlene Shovald, a family friend and former correspondent for The Pueblo Chieftain. He also is survived by wife Georgette McNabb, stepdaughter Jessica and son Jacob, 15. McNabb had served on missions in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan. Department of Defense and Army officials declined to comment on the cause of McNabb's death pending notification of all relatives. Chieftain readers will recall that McNabb's mother, Georgia McNabb, then a U.S. Postal carrier, launched a public plea for help in 2004. Boxes of hygiene products were mailed to Iraq thanks to donations sent from throughout Southern Colorado. McNabb said when he returned home in 2006 that he was able to help the whole battalion with the treats and supplies. Boxes came containing cards, pictures and banners from Pueblo West schoolchildren; while Rocky Ford residents sent a box for each soldier featuring underwear, socks, playing cards, hygiene items, prepaid phone cards, candy bars and more. Condolences may be mailed to the McNabb family in the care of family friend Arlene Shovald, 1124 D St., Salida, CO 81201. Pueblo Chieftain - September 23, 2012 - Fallen soldier remembered, honored - In a true heartfelt fashion, Salida said goodbye Saturday to a fallen hero. About 200 people gathered near the Arkansas River at the Salida Steam Plant to dedicate a bench and remember Sgt. 1st Class Barett "Bear" McNabb, 33, who was killed by an improvised explosive device June 12 in Afghanistan during his fourth tour of duty to the Middle East. McNabb's parents, Salidans Georgia and Steve McNabb, started off the memorial by reading letters from their son's fellow soldiers, taking turns when the other would become choked up. McNabb was "a person full of so much life that every time his image comes into my mind, it's with a big smile," wrote a commander in McNabb's platoon. "Wherever you are, may you keep watching out for the platoon with the same care you did when you were with us - as long as there is breath in our lungs, you will forever live on in our hearts."

Meier, George William
George William "Bill" Meier - Pueblo Chieftain - September 11, 2011 - George William "Bill" Meier passed away at about 10 p.m. on Sept. 6, 2011, the day after his 82nd birthday. Everyone who knew him will tell you Bill died from a broken heart over the loss of his life-long love and wife, Marge, who passed away nine months ago. They were married for 55 years and had five children, 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Bill loved camping and fishing, and was not averse to sharing a drink and gambling with those he might consider his friends. He lied to the Navy and enlisted when he was 15 years old to fight in World War II, but alas, the war was over so he never got the chance. Bill had the ability to fix anything that was broken (except for his own heart) and he never refused a request for help by anyone. He was probably the best father a child could ever have; faking anger when needed and giving out discipline fairly and wisely. We shall all miss Bill and Marge with a great sadness in our hearts. They taught us honesty, caring and how people should live their lives. These lessons we will pass on to others. To pay your respect to Bill, please come to La Renaissance restaurant, 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2011. Donations in his honor should be sent to where they will do the most good.

Too bad there isn't a way for me to sign my name.'  Gene had many hobbies, such as fishing, hunting, shooting, woodworking and volleyball.

He simply glowed at the opportunity to teach a life lesson, share a song, or tell one of his stories, which he could do like no one else. And he gave the best ' suitcase'  rides. Gene is survived by his wife and his three children, Tiffany Merrell, Jennifer O'Brien and Gene Merrell. He also had three stepchildren and 12 grandchildren.

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

Meyer, Robert Warren
Robert Warren Meyer - Huerfano World Journal - June 30, 2011 - Robert Warren Meyer (age 90), a long-time resident of Huerfano County, Colorado, died of natural causes Wednesday evening, June 15, 2011, at the Colorado State Veterans Nursing Home, located in Walsenburg, Colorado, where he had been a resident of one year while receiving physical therapy to recover from surgery. This had been Bob' s third surgery in three years repairing a broken leg first injured in a tractor accident when he was 16 years old. A native of Colorado, he was born on October 2, 1920 to Gus and Zula (Harlan) Meyer in Trinidad, Colorado. After spending his first few years on their farm in Missouri, Bob' s family moved to the JM Ranch, located near Gardner, Colorado when he was 5 years old. Gus had inherited the ranch from his father John M. Meyer, a German immigrant, who had become one of Colorado' s early cattle barons having run more than 4,000 head of cattle and sheep on the 5,000 plus acre spread. Bob' s initial school years were spent at the single-room adobe South Bradford School where he would often ride double with one of his older brothers on horses well-known to them as they all worked the ranch at a very early age. He later attended the Gardner School run by his Aunt Lida. Bob graduated from Huerfano County High School on June 2, 1937. After High School, Bob briefly attended Colorado University until he left to help his father run the JM Ranch. Growing up on the JM Ranch instilled a deep love for ranching and the outdoors in Bob. His mother mentioned that as a child, he often would sleep out on the porch instead of a perfectly warm room in the ranch house just to be outdoors as much as possible. Spring and fall round-ups were particularly enjoyable for Bob as he dearly loved horseback riding and working with cattle. Branding on the JM was a huge event as many neighbors chipped in to help as did the Meyer boys when the other ranches needed help with their operations. Bob also participated in the extensive haying operations as well as chopping ice in frigid weather to allow the animals to water and provide ice for summer picnics as they stored it in cellars. During World War II, Bob left the ranch and joined the US Navy while spending most of his tour in the South Pacific Theater. Much of his excitement came during mine sweeping operations on a wooden-hulled boat that he was later able to show his wife Peg during a trip to New York City. After becoming a Quartermaster Third Class, Bob was honorably discharged from the United States Navy at the Naval Personnel Separation Center located in Shoemaker, California on June 18, 1946. Upon discharge, his adventurous spirit inspired him to travel to Alaska and back south to Old Mexico in a jeep while camping each night during the journey. Other adventures consisted of hitch-hiking trips across the United States, landing in spots such as New York City, where he remembers being asked if his cowboy boots were good for killing cockroaches in room corners. Bob also traveled by motorcycle, on roads that would be challenging for today' s best equipment. Having experienced many of the places on his list, he returned to Walsenburg where he and his father partnered in the ranching business. In addition to ranching, Bob' s interest in hunting and fishing led to his becoming a guide who took adventurists by horseback into the Sangre de Cristo Range of southern Colorado. Bob met his Southern Belle when she was visiting relatives in Walsenburg during 1949 and they were married in the Presbyterian Church in Sumner, Mississippi on April 9, 1950. He and Peg began their 61 years together in Walsenburg where they met friends who participated in many functions such as ' wild-game dinners, theme parties, and talent shows. Their family of four children; Mike, Meryl Lee, Melissa and Mitch grew up loving the outdoors while camping, hunting and fishing in many of Bob' s favorite locations. Bob' s continued love for the outdoors resulted in creating a business partnership with Lloyd Sehnert named the ' Mountain Safari'  where he expanded his guide service using military jeeps as transportation. Bob took his jeeps where no one had before, including the Walsenburg fair grounds where he had challenged local horsemen to a calf-roping competition wherein Bob had mounted a saddle to the hood of his jeep so he could freely swing his lariat and lasso the calf. After serving as a Walsenburg City Councilman, Bob was appointed Executive Director of the local Public Housing Authority and served in that capacity for several years. Bob and Peg purchased the Paul Krier Insurance Agency in October, 1969 and moved the business to their building located on Main Street in Walsenburg. This building had been the location of Gus Meyer' s swap shop patronized by many in the Huerfano County area. Bob was a member of the United Methodist Church in Walsenburg where his booming bass added to the choir. He was awarded a certificate of commendation for serving as a member of the Great Lakes Choir at the United States Naval Training Center. He was a longtime member of the Walsenburg club (formerly Lions Club) where his antics, along with other talented Walsenburg residents, included performing in minstrel shows. A charter member of the Walsenburg Golf Club, Bob' s contributions allowed that dream to become reality for numerous Huerfano County residents and visitors. Having been a Mason, provided a link to the Rainbow organization where Meryl Lee and Melissa were active. Bob was a long-time member of the Cattlemen' s Association and served as a brand inspector for many years. For several years, Bob served as a Walsenburg Municipal Judge where many residents considered him to be honest and fair to all. He stopped actively ranching at the age of 80 as Bob and Peg sold the herd and started leasing the pasture to other area ranchers. Although, he physically stopped feeding, branding and shipping cattle, he never lost his passion for the rancher' s life and worried about the lack of rain at the pasture to his last day. Bob is known to his grandkids as Hot Shot. We all now realize that bears only attack those who sleep in the tent (not the camper), what it is like to catch your first fish, it is always better to tighten your cinch, driving the truck to feed the cows, horses love to be fed cake out of the pick up, and appreciate the fact that we don't have to ride to school horseback both ways in a blizzard. The Spanish Peaks, Big Sheep and Little Sheep are just a stone throw away. Hot Shot is loved by many and will truly be missed. Bob is preceded in death by his parents Gus A. and Zula R. Meyer, his daughter Melissa, and oldest brother Harlan Meyer. He is survived by his loving wife Peg Meyer who continues to reside in Walsenburg, Colorado; his children Michael M. Meyer and his wife Linda of Divide, Colorado, Meryl Lee and her husband Steve Seewald of Platteville, Colorado, Mitch Meyer and his wife Phyllis of Lakewood, Colorado; his grandchildren, Jenny Seewald Caruso of Harrisonville, Missouri, Jeff Seewald of Longmont, Colorado, and Dustin Meyer of Lakewood, Colorado; and great-grandchildren Brechen and Cedar Caruso. Bob is also survived by his brother Norman Meyer of Conifer, Colorado and sister-in-law Alice Meyer of Lakewood, Colorado and numerous nieces, nephews and very dear friends. A memorial service will be held at the United Methodist Church on Saturday June 25, 2011 at 2:00 PM. Contributions may be made to the Melissa Meyer Scholarship Fund through Boise-Ortega Funeral Home, 115 East 5th Street, Walsenburg, Colorado 81089 or the United Church of Walsenburg, 108 Kansas Avenue, Walsenburg, Colorado 81089.
