Radakovich, Dan
Dan Radakovich - Pueblo Chieftain - February 15, 2011 - Dan Radakovich, 86, passed into eternal life with his God on Feb. 10, 2011. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Stella; children, Danny Jay (Lisa) and Dorothy (Chuck Valentish); grandchildren, Nickolas, Carolyn, Kathryn Radakovich and Morgan, Rory Valentish; sister, Violet Capritta; brother-in-law, Harold Pryor; and numerous nephews and nieces. Dan was preceded in death by his parents, Nick and Angela Radakovich; in-laws, Dan and Milia Rapaich; siblings, Mike Riddock, Mildred Gentry, Daisy Pryor, Irene Jamnik; brother-in-law, Eli (Joan) Rapaich; and his favorite aunt, Mary Rusovick. Dan's parents both immigrated to the United States from Yugoslavia. They settled in Pueblo, where Nick found work at the CF&I steel mill. They raised their family in the Bessemer neighborhood, which teemed with like-immigrant families searching for, and earning, a better life in America. Dan was part of Tom Brokaw's "Greatest Generation" and, like many young men of his age, served his country in WWII with quiet pride. Dan's physical wounds were plain for all to see, but he never talked of personal sacrifice—only of his pride in defending freedom. It was not until the year 2000, that he talked of his involvement in the Normandy invasion, for which he received the Liberty Medal awarded by the grateful people of France as that country's recognition of “the D-Day freedom fighters' courage, sacrifice and commitment to rid the world of tyranny and hatred.” After the war, Dan ultimately became employed at the Pueblo Army Depot, where he worked on several missile systems, including Hawk, Nike and Pershing. Dan and Stella started raising their family in the same Bessemer neighborhood where Dan was born but then moved to the St. Charles Mesa where they worked from a “how-to” book and built their home. Dan also loved to garden, and he and Stella had a huge garden each year, supplying fresh produce to family and friends as a labor of love. Dan was an avid bowler, and earned several trips to the state bowling tournament. Most recently, he and former Depot coworkers formed a breakfast group known as ROMEO (Retired Old Men Eating Out) which met once a week. Above all, Dan will be remembered always as putting the needs of his family first, and with Stella by his side, working tirelessly to guide their children and grandchildren in understanding their blessings in life, the importance of family and the incredible opportunities and responsibilities we have as citizens of the United States of America. Viewing, 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2011, at the funeral home. Funeral service, 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 17, 2011, George McCarthy Historic Chapel with interment to follow at Roselawn Cemetery.

Radcliffe, Virgil
Virgil Radcliffe - Pueblo Chieftain - March 8, 1918 - Former Puebloan Killed in France - The latest dispatches from France state that among those killed in action was Virgil Radcliffe, giving Tennessee his home. For several years young Radcliffe was a resident of Pueblo, being employed in the merchant iron department at the steel works, and he was well known and highly respected in Bessemer. For over three years he made his home with Mrs. Ellen Hendrickson, 1409 Spruce Street. He was a great favorite with the family and was treated just like a member. “He came to Pueblo from Tennessee where his parents live,” said Mrs. Hendrickson yesterday. “I don't know exactly where but somewhere in the mountains because he used to gaze at the Rockies and tell how they reminded him of home. He was a kind-hearted, fun-loving young fellow, and made friends with everybody. When he left here to go home he said it would only be a short time before be came back; but he never did, probably because he enlisted. He was a southerner, but Old Glory and Uncle Sam never had a better nor braver champion than was Virgil Radcliffe.”

Rael, Cruz
Cruz Rael - Pueblo Chieftain - August 18, 1995 - Cultural Heritage Center will fete pioneer women - Saul Yurivilca Jr. plays with two string puppets that he bought at the 1994 state fair. The Colorado State Fair's Cultural Heritage Center will pay tribute to pioneer women who played significant roles in the history of Colorado beginning in the 1800s. The theme of this year's exhibits will be "Women of Strength and Weakness: Molders of Colorado." "We want to focus on pioneer women who really made a difference in the early days of the state," said exhibit coordinator Clara Berry. "We plan to have a variety of exhibits on strong ladies in Colorado's history from throughout the state, not just the Pueblo area." Some of the women who will be featured include: the "unsinkable" Molly Brown, Luna Jordan Thatcher, Lily Webster, Eliza Boone, and Cruz Rael, to name a few. Cruz Rael, a Pueblo resident for 96 years, moved to Pueblo County from New Mexico in 1821 following her marriage to Joe Rael. The couple settled amidst Indians in Six-Mile, a community said to have been settled by the original residents of Pueblo County. Born in 1803, Mrs. Rael lived through the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War and saw the beginning of World War I. When "hordes" of people began moving to the Pueblo area after the Civil War, the couple moved to Avondale in 1880. Her husband died that same year. Mrs. Rael stayed in Avondale with her four sons until her death on Sept. 22, 1917. She was 114 years old. The Raels were said to be "widely known" in the county and were considered to be the leading farmers in the community. Mrs. Rael's obituary states, "Altho (sic) very old, she was a remarkable woman, and until the past few years, was extremely active . . . She was highly respected among the citizens of Avondale." Exhibit organizers also promise artifacts, a display of an "old-fashioned" kitchen and literature, among other historical items. Mrs. Berry credited several museums throughout the state for contributing items for the exhibit. The Cultural Heritage Center, located next to the Creative Arts Building, will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. throughout the fair.

Rafferty, Barney
Barney Rafferty - Rocky Mountain News - June 3, 1894 - The Death List - Four More Bodies Found in the Pueblo Flooded District - Pueblo, Colo., June 2 - Four bodies are now in the hands of the coroner, having been found since Wednesday's flood. The dead thus far discovered are: Barney Rafferty, 60 years old, laborer, single; Joseph Scorafa, 20 years old, single, laborer; John Coama, 35 years old, single, a stranger, occupation unknown; Mrs. Caroline Izar, 60 years old. Coama's body was found at 9 o'clock this morning, standing bolt upright in a house in the flat back of Lannon's foundry on Santa Fe avenue, near the river. He had been in the city but a few days, and as he was fully dressed it is supposed that he took refuge in the house and escape was cut off by ten feet of water. Mrs. Izar's body was discovered at 3:30 this afternoon in her house at 114 North Mechanic Street, in the flat east of the city hall, where the water was eight feet deep. She had apparently gone to bed, for she was clad only in her night dress. When she awoke escape was impossible. She and her husband, John Izar, a shoemaker, have been living apart and she was alone in the house, which was not known to be occupied and was not approached by any of the numerous rescuing parties. As time goes on grave fears are entertained that the list of fatalities will be increased, and diligent search is being made in the locality where the bodies were found today, that being believed the most likely district of the occurrence of drowning. Something of a sensation was created today when the post mortem was made on the body of Rafferty, the first found, who was supposed to have met death in the swollen waters of the Bessemer ditch. The back of his head was broken and as he had just received a sum of money foul play was thought possible. His lungs contained no water, so that the suspicions are confirmed. His money and valuables, however, he had left at his boarding place and they were recovered.

Ragsdale, Olin H.
Olin H. Ragsdale – Pueblo Chieftain – November 9, 1917 – Olin H. Ragsdale, Head of Local Fruit Co. Dies from Injuries – Mangled by Santa Fe Cars at Grand Avenue Crossing – Olin H. Ragsdale, Pres. and general manager of the Brinkley-Douglass Fruit Co., was run over and crushed by a string of cars at the Grand Ave., Crossing of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad at 6:45 o'clock yesterday morning. He died several hours later at St. Mary's Hospital from the shock of having his left leg amputated. Mr. Ragsdale was on his way to the office at 212 Grand Ave. to look after some early receipts of fruit in carload lots. As he started along the sidewalk at the railroad crossing there was a string of cars standing near the sidewalk with no engine attached to them. Mr. Ragsdale stepped out on the track in front of the standing cars and at the same instant, several cars sent down from near 4th Street, a block or more way, supposedly in making a flying switch, struck the cars near the sidewalk on Grand with terrific force. The standing cars at Grand Avenue were kicked clear across the street from the west to the east side. Mr. Ragsdale was dragged entirely across the street. His left leg and left arm were almost severed and his body was terribly bruised. He was hurried to the hospital and the crushed leg was amputated. It would have been necessary to have amputated his left arm also, but he never recovered from the shock occasioned by the amputation of his leg. Crew Explains Accident – It was stated that the cars standing beside the crossing were not manned by an employee of the railroad and that there was no watchman to warn of the danger at the crossing while the flying switch was being made. It is supposed the cars switched against the standing train, were kicked down with more than usual violence, or else had gotten beyond the control of the employee or switchman sent to ride them down. The explanation of the accident as given by members of the Santa Fe switch crew handling the cars, was that the automatic coupler failed to work and that the cars being switched failed to couple to the string of standing cars. When the standing cars were started moving there was no way to stop them. The railway employees claimed that if the coupling had worked the man sent to ride the switched cars could easily have held them. They claim the crossing alarm bell was sounding and that the usual precautions had been taken to warn the public that the railroad was using the crossing. Mr. Ragsdale has been a resident of Pueblo for several years and has been with the Brinkley-Douglass Co. four years, coming here from Palisade. He was favorably known in business circles and highly esteemed. He was 48 years old and was married but had no children. He resided with his wife at the Golf Apartments. Was Heavily Insured – Mr. Ragsdale carried over $30,000 life insurance, the greater part of which was taken out since the first of this year. Of this amount, $25,000 was in old line companies and the rest in accident and fraternal companies. Of the total amount, $10,000 was made out to the company of which he was manager issued under the new kind of corporation insurance. He carried $15,000 of the amount as personal life made payable to his wife, practically all of which was taken out within the last year. Mr. Ragsdale is survived by his wife, Nora P. Ragsdale, 5 brothers and one sister. The 5 brothers are Rev. Thomas Ragsdale, Nashville, Tennessee; Arthur Ragsdale, San Antonio, Texas; Camp Ragsdale, Dallas, Texas; Paul and Mark Ragsdale, Brownwood, Texas. The sister, Mrs. Fannie Cannon, also resides a Brownwood, Texas. He was a member of Pueblo Lodge No. 97, A. F. & A. M., Nolan Lodge, No. 114, I. O. O.

Raigoza, Johnny Jesus
Johnny Jesus “J.J.” Raigoza - Pueblo Chieftain - September 17, 1994 - 'JJ' Raigoza: A 'Giant of a Man' in Size, Humanity - "JJ" Raigoza was indeed a giant of a man. At 6 feet 2 inches tall and 320 pounds, he was physically imposing. But equally, he was a giant of a human being, in his enthusiasm, his compassion and his advocacy. "He was an advocate since the day he left the service," his older son, JJ II, said Friday. Johnny Jesus "JJ" Raigoza died Wednesday at age 49 following a two-month illness. Funeral mass will be at 10 a.m. today at St. Francis Xavier Church followed by interment with full military honors at Imperial Gardens. "He was a tremendous advocate for all the youngsters," recalled John Tracey, chief judge of the 10th Judicial District where Raigoza had been a probation officer since the mid-1980s. "But at the same time, if they didn't respond, he would be the first one to come in and say it was time they received some serious consequences." Tracey recalled first meeting Raigoza when he applied for the Pueblo job after serving in Colorado Springs. "He just exuded a kind of enthusiasm for the job and you felt that here's a man who's got not only some enthusiasm, but will bring new ideas and invigorate whatever he undertakes." That's what Raigoza did in his probation job, taking "the toughest of the tough in terms of counseling needs," Tracey said. And that's what he did throughout his life, his wife, Arlene Raigoza said. The couple met when both were working in the War on Poverty. A Pueblo native and 1965 graduate of Central High School, Raigoza graduated from the University of Southern Colorado and served six years in the U.S. Navy in Vietnam and Guam. He became involved in everything, from neighborhood health care programs to the Colorado Advisory Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. He also worked as a guard in the forensics unit at the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo, for the district attorney, and at Spanish Peaks Mental Health Center. He played a major role in the Latino Chamber of Commerce. "He was an asset to our organization," said Bonnie Martinez, Latino Chamber president. "He truly gave his time. He always had time for everybody and everything." Among dozens of accomplishments his proudest was his role in the development of the Bessemer Ditch Rehabilitation Bill, which was signed into law July 9, 1980, by then-president Jimmy Carter. Raigoza had discovered the widespread flooding of basements in the Bessemer Ditch area and worked tirelessly to see the bill passed, she said. The family enjoyed a vacation in Washington, D.C., this summer, a vacation they will treasure all the more now, she said. Recently, he had lost a good deal of weight, Mrs. Raigoza said. "He wanted to get in shape." And he formed his own business, AJ Connections, with an eye to a dream of developing a demographics data and editing business. "He discovered computers," she said. George Autobee, former Puebloan who operates a Center for Hispanic Studies in Denver, "kept telling him, you've got to get in computers." He did and made sure the children, and Mrs. Raigoza, became computer literate. "He had a keen mind; he was very sharp; he was never boring," she said. "To me he had charisma." Judge Tracey agreed.

Randall, Albert A.
Albert A. Randall - Pueblo Chieftain - March 24, 1992 - Gravestones in Pueblo Yard Bear Hint of History, Mystery - Two tombstones in yard of house at Eighth and Greenwood may get double takes from passers-by, but don't mark graves. When John McBride takes his early morning walks Downtown, he's often impressed by the neighborhood detail he notices that he never sees from a car. None more so than the two grave markers behind the white frame house at Eighth and Greenwood in the heart of Pueblo. They stand side by side - a 4-foot-tall gray granite shaft and a foot-high tan sandstone square - almost obscured from sight by a bush. Whose headstones are they, he wondered. Where did they come from? Do they mark graves? The answers are both simple and impossible. Legends on both tell names and dates. The gray granite shaft was on the property when Duncan Henrikson bought the property several years ago from a Missouri man who had inherited it. The legend reads: C. R. Hedges; May 19, 1858; Feb. 4, 1903; Here lies a Woodman of the World. "It used to be sitting closer to the house, but I have no idea where it came from," Henrikson said. Neighborhood gossip suggests the actual grave is under the back porch of the house. No way, said Henrikson. There's a basement under the house. It is the small headstone that is heart-wrenching. And it is a treasure to the present occupant of the house, Nancy Ellen. She has owned the marker for a decade since she found it at one of the many antique and collectibles sales she attends. The tragedy is etched on three sides of the small tan headstone. Three children; three deaths in three months: Our Baby; Died Jan. 20, 1881; Age 7 Days. James Died; April 3, 1881; Age 8 Years. Albert A., son of A.C. and E.A. Randall; Died March 24, 1881; Age 6 Years. Historian Joanne Dodds said such markers were common in early days. "It was some contagious disease," she said. "You see it in the spring and in the winter. Winters were hard and strength was down." It's easy to understand why people were terrified of contagious diseases such as small pox, she said. "It wiped out families, especially children. Ms. Ellen has no idea where the children's gravestone originated. "I always supposed it was from somewhere around here, but I just don't know," she said.

Randall, Mary Adeline
Mary Adeline Felici Randall - Amarillo Globe-News - January 13, 2009 - Mary Adeline Felici Randall, 84, of Amarillo, formerly of Albuquerque, N.M., died Saturday, Jan. 10, 2009. Graveside services will be at 2 p.m. today in Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery Albuquerque by French Mortuary of Albuquerque. Mary was born April 23, 1924, in Walsenburg, Colo., and was the firstborn daughter of Florendo Felici and Angelina Lanzi Felici, who emigrated from Bologna, Italy, in the early part of the 1900s. She died from complications of Alzheimer's. Her father was in the military during World War I and later became a coal miner and her mother, a homemaker. Mary lived in Colorado with her parents and two younger sisters until a tragic car accident claimed the life of her mother and youngest sister. While her father was recuperating in a hospital for a year, Mary and her younger sister went to live in Detroit with their uncle, Carl Felici, and wife Isabel until her father's recovery. She met and married the love of her life, Raymond Burton Randall Jr., in Walsenburg in 1942. Mary and Raymond met while working together at Bailey's Cleaners in Walsenburg. The couple had a son, Raymond Randall III, in Pueblo, Colo. The couple later moved to Albuquerque, where Raymond was from, and enjoyed fellowship with his seven brothers and sisters and their families. Raymond and Mary had a daughter, Verlene, a few years later. Raymond opened University Cleaners in 1948, and Mary worked alongside her husband for many years in the family business. After retirement, Mary and Raymond enjoyed building a family cabin in the beautiful Manzano Mountains that served as a refuge for family and friends and remains so today. Mary loved life, enjoyed gardening, dancing and above all, her relationships with family and friends. Mary was an outgoing, good-natured woman, who was loved and adored by many. Mary was a beautiful woman in form and spirit and remained so all her life. Mary moved to Amarillo in 2005, a couple years after the passing of her beloved Raymond. There she lived with her daughter, Verlene, and husband and grandson, enjoying life and the company of family and friends up until her passing. Those who knew her knew that in later years she always reminisced about never missing a high school dance. She was preceded in death by her parents, Florendo and Angelina Felici; a sister, Elsie Felici; and her husband, Raymond Burton Randall Jr. Survivors include her younger sister, Eleanor Lanzi O'Neil of West Branch, Mich.; a cousin, Carol Kelly of St. Clair Shores, Mich.; a son, Raymond Burton Randall III and wife Sherry Randall of Albuquerque; a daughter, Verlene Williams and husband Raleigh Williams of Amarillo; seven grandchildren, Alan Randall and wife Tami of Aztec, N.M., Arlan Randall and wife Debi of Albuquerque and Jimmy Sanders, Denise Rector, Shelly Snyder and husband Gary, Cindy Cruz and husband Johnny and Laurie Stockard and husband Dusty, all of Amarillo; 15 great-grandchildren; and many nephews, nieces, great-nephews and great-nieces.

Randles, Bruno
Bruno Randles - Pueblo Chieftain - May 14, 2012 - Another fatal crash in Pueblo County - 84-year-old man dies after running stop sign - An 84-year-old man was killed Sunday in a Tbone crash after he reportedly ran a stop sign in Pueblo West. The accident happened on the corner of Hahns Peak Avenue and Joe Martinez Boulevard in front of Pueblo West Fire Station No. 1. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer identified the deceased man as Bruno Randles. The crash was reported at about 11:52 a.m. Pueblo County Sheriff's Deputy Laurie Kilpatrick said Randles ran a stop sign while driving northbound on Hahns Peak in a Toyota Tercel. A Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling westbound on Joe Martinez Boulevard was unable to avoid the collision and struck the Toyota. Kilpatrick said witnesses of the accident notified the Pueblo West Fire Department, which immediately responded from inside the station located where the two roads intersect. Kilpatrick said the Pueblo West Fire Department attempted life-saving measures and Flight for Life was requested for the elderly Randles. “The man succumbed to the injuries sustained in the accident and was pronounced deceased on scene,” Kilpatrick said. The driver of the Jeep was a 61-year-old woman. There were two passengers in the vehicle, a 55-year-old woman and a 9-year-old girl. None of the occupants in the Jeep were identified. They were all taken to Parkview Medical Center for treatment. Their conditions were unknown Sunday. “At this time we don't believe that alcohol or speed were a factor and no charges are pending,” Kilpatrick said. Pueblo West Fire Chief Brian Caserta had not received detailed information from the firefighters who responded to the scene Sunday and declined to comment on what they observed. Caserta said the intersection has been troublesome for traffic accidents. “We've witnessed a lot of accidents and a lot of near misses at that intersection in front of the station,” Caserta said. “People run the stop sign a lot. Unfortunately, Sunday's tragic accident didn't come as much of a surprise.” Caserta noted that the environment surrounding the intersection is not conducive to being particularly dangerous. Only one structure, a medical building on the southeast corner, is remotely close to the roadways and views in all directions are unobstructed. Stop signs on Hahns Peak control the traffic onto Joe Martinez. “It's a wide-open intersection. There's nothing to block your view in any direction,” Caserta said. “It seems very odd that is a problem intersection. I wish I had some explanation. I just urge drivers to use more caution.”

Ransom, Will
Will Ransom – Colorado Springs Gazette – June 8, 1921 – Forty-Two Bodies in Pueblo Morgues – Five Additional Today; Several Died of Natural Causes, Says J. W. Pressy, in Charge of Identification – Pueblo, June 7 – Forty-two bodies of flood victims were in the morgues of the city tonight. Five additional bodies were recovered and one of the unidentified bodies was identified… The official list of dead follows: … Will Ranson, colored… None of the 31 (?) recovered bodies between Pueblo and Boone reported last night by the rangers are included in this list. Likewise it does not contain the names of persons merely believed to have perished. Only bodies actually in the three morgues that are in operation are included. Estimates of the deaths last night included 10 bodies reported to have been recovered on the St. Charles Mesa and a number of bodies not yet recovered but declared by searching parties to have been located under water and debris which made their removal impossible. Ray McCarthy, acting coroner, announced today that no inquests would be held over the bodies of the flood victims. "The flood was an act of God. No inquest is needed to determine that," he said.

They lived in California and Arizona before moving to Albuquerque in 1939. He married Dixie Shipler and they were married for over 50 years when she preceded in him in death on Sept. 26, 2009.

An outstanding teacher as well as a player, Pat has coached and supported the University of Southern Colorado golf team pro bono and has been a strong supporter of junior golf for years. He served as secretary and later on the board of the Colorado PGA Section which he joined in 1957. Rea began his career at the Pueblo Country Club in 1957 and worked as head pro until 1997. He founded the Hackers Holiday in 1960 and it is the longest-running member-guest tournament in Colorado. Few local legends reach icon status, but Rea did – without even trying. He played in three U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships. He won the Colorado Open in 1975 and said in an interview that was one of his top moments in golf.

"I lost a great friend and mentor," said Mike Zaremba, director of golf at Desert Hawk Golf Course. "The guy won more than 60 tournaments in his career and he could flat play. Pat didn't say much, but as a man, his integrity was beyond reproach." "He won the Rocky Mountain Open five straight years at one point, so I asked him how he was able to do that," Zaremba said. "He just said that he knew what he had to do to get it done and he did it.”In his prime, I would've taken him against anyone in the world from 80 yards and in. He loved to play and compete, and he'd take your money while looking you in the eye with a smile." "Pat was a pretty quiet guy, but he was a great judge of character and he knew who was the real deal," Zaremba said. "And he was the real deal, of course." Fitting that the Hackers Holiday, a golf tournament Pat Rea started more than 50 years ago at the Pueblo Country Club, begins today, June 20 – one day after his death. Pat was a member of the BPO Elk's #90 in Pueblo for 56 years. At Rea's request, there will be no services. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial contributions may be made to YMCA First Tee or Sangre de Cristo Hospice through Montgomery & Steward Funeral Directors, 1317 N. Main St., Pueblo, CO 81003.

Reade, Francine
Francine Reade - Imperial Funeral Home - May 2, 2013 - Francine Reade, December 22, 1945 - April 26, 2013. Memorial Service, Tuesday, May 7, 2013, 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m., Imperial Funeral Home. Denver Westword - April 26, 2013 - April 26: Last night, a man was loading groceries into his car after shopping at a King Soopers on the 15000 block of East Colfax in Aurora when he looked up to see something shocking. Nearby was a 67-year-old woman in a wheelchair who appeared to be hurt -- and she was. She subsequently died of her wounds, prompting a homicide investigation by the Aurora Police Department. Get details below. A few minutes before 10 p.m. last night, according to APD spokeswoman Sergeant Cassidee Carlson, officers responded to a call from the man and sped to the scene, which features two strip malls -- a larger one that runs north and south and a smaller east-west one. "He was parked near the west end of the larger strip mall -- the one anchored by the King Soopers," she says. "There are some businesses at the west end, including a dry cleaners, and she was coming out from behind it." The woman wasn't moving well because of wounds to her upper torso. After police arrived, she was transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Officers subsequently found evidence behind the dry cleaners "that led us to believe the crime scene was there," Carlson says. And while the victim has yet to be identified, she was known to officers who covered the area. According to Carlson, "she was homeless. We'd done different welfare checks on her." Thus far, the APD has no suspects in the crime. With that in mind, the department encourages anyone with knowledge of this terrible incident to phone Detective Todd Fredericksen at 303-739-6106 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867), which is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the killer's arrest and conviction. Denver Westword - May 1, 2013 - Shawn Lopez charged with murder of Francine Reade, wheelchair bound homeless woman - Last week, we told you about the horrific slaying of a woman who fit the definition of an at-risk adult in several ways. She was 67 years old. She was confined to a wheelchair. And she was homeless. See our previous coverage below. The victim has now been identified as Francine Reade, and a 21-year-old man, Shawn Lewis Lopez, has been formally accused of robbing and killing her. As we've reported, a man had just finished shopping at a King Soopers on the 15000 block of East Colfax in Aurora when he saw the wheelchair-bound Reade emerge from behind businesses in the strip mall with what appeared to be serious injuries to her upper torso -- and they were. The 17th Judicial District DA's office reveals that she had been stabbed. She subsequently died of her wounds after being rushed to an area hospital. It didn't take long for police to pinpoint the apparent crime scene, behind a dry cleaners. And shortly thereafter, Lopez was taken into custody. At this point, no specifics of her capture or info about what led police to Lopez are being made public due to an ongoing investigation. But we do know the accusations Lopez will be facing: two allegations of first-degree felony murder and one count apiece of first-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping, aggravated robbery and aggravated robbery of an at-risk adult. Yes, it appears that Reade, who was clearly not a wealthy woman, died because someone wanted to steal from her. Lopez is due in Adams County court at 8:30 a.m. today to be advised of the charges against him.

Charles A. Reiger – Pueblo Chieftain – July 12, 1919 – Pueblo Yankee Died of Wounds – Word has been received of the death of Charles A. Reiger from wounds received in action. Reiger was the son of Mr. and Mrs. George F. Reiger residing at 205 Block I. Reiger was reported wounded September 6, and several weeks later his parents received a letter which he had written just before that date. This was the last they heard of him until Wednesday when the telegram came announcing that the boy had died the day he was wounded. Reiger graduated from Central High School in 1913, and was employed by the Pueblo Bridge Co. He left Pueblo in October, 1917 for Camp Funston, and was later sent to Camp Kearney, and sailed for France in June, 1919. He was with the 109th Infantry, Co. B. Pueblo Chieftain – June 13, 1917 – Puebloans Who Registered For Selective Army Draft – Appended are young Puebloans between the ages of 21 and 30 years inclusive, who registered in eleven city precincts for the selective draft to the United States army: Precinct No. 23 – Charles Albert Reiger. Pueblo Chieftain – October 2, 1917 – Two Exemption Boards Have Difficulty in Getting Quotas – Only one of the exemption boards in Pueblo and Pueblo county has its 40 (?) per cent of the draft quota ready for entrainment Wednesday. The North side board has its full number, while the county will be three men short and the south side board about 30 men short. The following lists of drafted men are expected to leave Pueblo this week for the training camp at Camp Funston. South Side List – On the eve of mobilization day, local board No. 2 finds itself thirty men short of the 104 required for its forty per cent quota… The board certified the following men yesterday to the district board and expect that they will leave with the others Wednesday: Chas. A. Reiger, 203 Block I. Pueblo Chieftain – April 17, 1919 – Parents in Doubt as to Fate of Son – Charles A. Rieger, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Rieger, 203 Block I, is reported as missing in action, and has been ever since August, 1918. His name appeared on the casualty list of yesterday, and his parents received official notice from the government on April 3 that their son was wounded and still missing. One the next day they received a cable from Paris stating that he was with the Service Supply company, Department 2, Army Postoffice 713, and that he had been wounded. They are in doubt as to which of the messages are authentic but are inclined to think that the more recent one from France is the correct one. Rieger is 25 years old and has been in the service almost two years. He enlisted October 3, 1917, and was sent to Camp Funston. From there he was transferred to Camp Kearny and remained in that camp until he received his orders to sail in June, 1918. The last letter received from him by his parents was dated in August and he was “Somewhere in France.” At the time of his enlistment he was an engineer for the Pueblo Bridge company. He is also a graduate of Central high school.Pueblo Chieftain – July 13, 1919 – In the Lodge Room – Yeomen No. 917 – This homestead met last Wednesday night with a large attendance present… We are sorry to announce the death of Charles Reiger in France, which occurred last September and tender our deep sympathy to the bereaved family.

Staff Sgt. Gavin B. Reinke, 32, was one of two soldiers who died after the explosion Thursday in Baghdad. Also killed was Spc. Bryan L. Quinton, 24, of Sand Springs, Okla. Both men were assigned to the 5th Engineer Battalion, 1st Engineer Brigade at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. Reinke's wife, Carole Reinke, said she was told her husband died while trying to help fellow soldiers whose Humvee had been hit by an explosive moments earlier. “That's exactly the kind of person he was,” Reinke said from her home in Saint Robert, Mo., where she lives with their 3-year-old daughter, Kayleigh. “He was an amazing man. As a friend, as a father, as a husband, and it carried over to being a soldier.” She said her husband wasn't an outgoing person, but once people got to know him, he would do anything to help them. When they lived on base, he would take the time to mow the lawn of his neighbor, a single mother, when he had finished his own, she said. “Everybody that knows him is just as proud as they can be of what he did,” Reinke said. Gavin Reinke was born in New Jersey, but his family moved to Pueblo in 1980, his father, Scott Reinke, said. He graduated from Central High School and joined the military in 1996.

Boorda was the first enlisted sailor in U.S. Naval history to rise through the ranks to the position of chief of naval operations. Mike had great respect for Admiral Boorda and their shared experience. Mike's service at sea included duty aboard several ship types including destroyers and attack troop transports. He always felt his most rewarding tour was aboard the USS Constellation (CV 64), where he served as ship's secretary and personnel officer from March 1978 until February 1980. The Constellation can be seen today at Bremerton Naval Ship Yard. The most devastating assignment Mike had was during the height of the Vietnam conflict while serving aboard the USS Frank E. Evans (DD 754). In the early morning hours of June 3, 1969, on the South China Sea, the Frank E. Evans was cut in two by a collision with the Royal Australian Navy aircraft carrier, Melbourne. At least a third of the Frank E. Evans sank almost immediately resulting in 74 officers and enlisted personnel being lost at sea. He always would say that it was an act of God that he survived. In his 30 years of naval service, Mike earned three Meritorious Service Medals, two Navy Commendation Medals, two Navy Achievement Medals and various service and campaign medals and ribbons. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Frank L. Reiter and Doris L. (Goins) Reiter, both of Pueblo; his infant son, Patrick LeRoy; and a sister, Karen James of McPherson, Kan., Jan Alston, an aunt, of Florence, Colo. He is survived by his wife, MarDel (Hansey) Reiter of Salt Lake City, Utah, who was a big help in caring for him with his illness; his children, Pamela K. Reiter of Costa Mesa, Calif., and Shawn (Sylvia) Reiter of Port Orchard, Wash.; his first wife, Patricia, of 22 years, mother of Pamela, Shawn and Patrick LeRoy Reiter, became his caregiver during the last two years. He also is survived by his brother, Gary (Arlene) Reiter of Westcliffe, Colo., and two aunts, Betty Sturdevant and Jean Leo of Portland, Ore. He also leaves behind three grandchildren, Cory and Colin Nichols, Travis Reiter; his uncle, Charles Reiter of Pueblo, Colo., and numerous nieces and nephews. Mike enjoyed all of his family very much and felt they were the greatest blessing he had in life. He also enjoyed woodworking and sports, especially basketball. Mike completed several marathons, finishing the Honolulu Marathon in 4:10, his personal best. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him and fondly remembered.

Renegar, John
John Renegar – Pueblo Chieftain – February 23, 1919 – Prisoner Dies in 3 Minutes – Suddenly and with scarcely any warning death yesterday snatched a patient from a local hospital, a prisoner from the county jail, and a criminal case from the district court, when John Renegar, reported well of the pneumonia and fit to be returned to the county jail, collapsed on the steps of the hospital and died in three minutes. John Renegar was arrested several months ago on a serious charge and lodged in the county jail, in default of bail to secure his attendance at trial in the district court. Not quite 2 weeks ago he was stricken with pneumonia and removed to a local hospital for treatment, being under care of the county physician. Yesterday he was reported so nearly recovered that it would be safe and advisable to take him back to the county jail. Sheriff Thomas and Undersheriff Slagle went to the hospital with their automobile to remove Renegar to the jail; they assisted him to dress and escorted him to the front steps of the hospital when suddenly the patient-prisoner collapsed and dropped. He was quickly carried back into the hospital and everything possible was done for him, but inside three minutes he was dead. Renegar was 47 years old; the body was removed to the Whiton Undertaking parlors. Pueblo Chieftain – February 26, 1919 – Yeager, Charged With the Murder of Beard Saw Sproules Kill Officer W. W. Green – Frank Yeager, confined in the county jail on the charge of murdering George F. Beard in the Empress rooming house last fall, was a star witness against Clifford Sproules being tried for the murder of W. W. Green. Yeager, under guard, was brought from the county jail and placed upon the witness stand late yesterday afternoon. He was interrogated by the district attorney as to his residence for months past in the county jail, and coolly replied to the question of Attorney Dye for the defense, as to why he was in jail, that he was under a charge of murder. He stated that he had now been a resident of Pueblo for three years, one month and three days. Mr. Hughes asked him what cell he occupied in the jail, and if it was so located that he could see clearly what happened with regard to the murder of Mr. Green. "I was sitting at the door of my cell, No. 1, and could see clearly all that happened. Mr. Green came first, Renegar next, and Sproules last toward the bullpen. Mr. Green reached up with the key in his right hand to unlock the box lock; just then Sproules struck him over the head with the gun twice, and as he reeled from the force of the blows, Sproules shot him twice, grabbed the keys and escaped down the stairway." A vigorous cross-examination failed to shake his statements in the least. John Renegar referred to above, is the man who died suddenly at a local hospital several days ago after being pronounced well enough to be taken back to jail.

Renkemeyer, Robert
Robert Renkemeyer - Colorado Springs Gazette 2-9-1989 - Pueblo Explosion Kills Man at Airport Industrial Park/ Pressure Kettle's Lid Blasts Through Roof - Pueblo - An equipment consultant was killed Wednesday evening when a "giant pressure cooker" being tested at a Kaiser plant exploded, projecting its lid through the roof, authorities said. Three other workers in the Kaiser Space Products building escaped unhurt, authorities said. The explosion occurred at 6:30 p.m. in the structure at the Airport Industrial Park. The victim was identified as Robert Renkemeyer, 66, of Pensacola, Fla., said Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer. Renkemeyer was standing near a hydroclave, which is a steam-driven pressure kettle used for curing aerospace parts, when it exploded, and "the lid blew off," said Kaiser President Bill Sidney. Pueblo Fire Department spokesman Charlie Stimmel said the 14,000-pound lid blasted through the roof and landed in a parking lot 50 or 60 feet away. The west and south walls of the building also were blown out. "It's impossible to know how the pressure vessel blew up," Sidney told a group of Kaiser workers who swarmed around his car. Stimmel said, "The pressure vessel had 1,000 pounds per square inch of pressure and was being fed 310-degree steam when it blew. Right now we're thinking it was some type of pressure buildup." He emphasized that the accident was not caused by a natural gas explosion. Earlier, Pueblo police Sgt. Robert Williams had reported that the object launched through the roof was a rocket nose cone. Sidney said Renkemeyer was a representative of the company that built the hydroclave. "It was the first time we ran it (the hydroclave) at full pressure," he said. Pueblo County sheriff's deputy Richard Bregar, one of the first to arrive at the scene, said, "What an eerie feeling . . . it just shook your whole body. I heard the explosion and saw the south walls of the building fall down." The Kaiser plant was built at a cost of approximately $5 million. Investigators said about half the plant was damaged. In addition to the manufacturing area, some of the administrative offices were damaged.

Reynolds, who was crushed to death at the Martin Street crossing Thursday evening, will be held under direction of Coroner Davis at the Davis-Vories Undertaking parlors, this afternoon at 4 o'clock. Pueblo Chieftain – December 1, 1918 – Deep Mystery Veils Manner Victim Got Beneath Wheels – "Exact cause being unknown to this jury." This is the final statement an important feature of the verdict of the coroner's jury which yesterday afternoon spent much time and great effort trying to ascertain the initial cause of the death of George E. Reynolds, who at 8:45 Friday evening was found mangled at the Martin Street crossing of the Santa Fe Railroad Company. It was common knowledge that the direct cause of death was that the wheels of a freight train had run over Mr. Reynolds, but how he came to be in position to meet with such a fate, was what the jury and Coroner Davis tried so earnestly to ascertain; all efoff (sic) the crossing at 8:23, and not one witness beside Dr. Buck who performed the autopsy, had been rigidly examined by Deputy Dist. Atty. Taylor and members of the jury. Engine Foreman Harry Laws, whose crew had made up the "red ball" train which later ran over Mr. Reynolds, testified to finding the body and 8:45; the train had gone out of the yard and off the cross at 8:33, and not one witness had seen Mr. Reynolds anywhere until his mangled body was discovered about 10 feet west of the planking of the crossing. The body had been practically cut in two, the wheels passing from the right hip diagonally upward and across the abdomen, chest and left shoulder; both legs were cut off below the knees; Dr. Buck said death must have been instantaneous. Conductor Amos E. Jackson stated that his first knowledge of the accident came to him at Colorado Springs. Engineer William Hickey said he first heard of it on arriving at Pinion, and that the car men at Colorado Springs stated that blood was found on wheels of a car about third from the caboose, which was located about 14 cars east of the crossing before the train was connected for the start north. Flagman C. Barnes and Fireman W. M. Barnett also testified that they did not see Mr. Reynolds before or after starting the train. It was learned from the street car men on the Irving Line that Reynolds went to the blocks section of the city to see someone around 4:30, so it was on the way to his home on W. 13th St. that he was coming on foot when the fatality occurred.

Reywalt, Mary
Mary Reywalt – Pueblo Chieftain – April 29, 1917 – Woman's Long Journey across the Plains in Sixty-Eight - Grandma Reywalt's Story of Perilous Trip to Pueblo Amid Indians and Other Dangers – A sketch of the journey across the plains by "Grandma" Mary Reywalt, who died in a Pueblo hospital a few days ago, was published in the Fowler Tribune and could very evidently have been extended to many columns with the approval of the reader. Mrs. Reywalt was born in 1832 and her first husband was George Dotson. "I came to Colo. from Lewisburg, West Virginia, in 1868, making a considerable portion of the trip overland in a wagon. With my brother-in-law Peter Dotson, and other relatives, I left West Virginia on April 11, 1868. We did not arrive at the Peter Dotson Ranch, near Beulah, until the 9th of May, and I shall never forget that memorable trip, and the many thrilling incidents which marked my advent into Colo. and the wild and woolly west. From Lewisburg, my native home, we went to Charleston, and thence by boat to Cincinnati. Here we took the train to Sheridan, Kan., which was some 500 miles east of here. At Sheridan we learned the Indians to the west were giving immigrants so much trouble we were forced to stay there for a number of days. There were eleven of us in the party and we had but one wagon. From Sheridan we finally joined an overland freighting caravan coming to Pueblo from Kansas City over the well-worn trail. The road was as hard and smooth as a floor, and we could make fairly good time. Indians and Buffalo were numerous at that time, and on more than one occasion we had to wait until a herd of buffalo had finished crossing the trail before we could proceed. "When we were yet east of what is now the Colo. state line, my brother-in-law decided it would be safe to separate from the freighting party and proceed at a faster gait. We had not gone far, however, before two men on horseback came to our camp at 3 o'clock in the morning. They informed us that the Indians had stolen 25 cattle belonging to some immigrants, and they warned us to put out our campfire and to be on the lookout for the red-skins. My brother-in-law, Uncle Jake Dotson, was a resident of Colo. and of course was more or less familiar with the country, the Indians and their habits. The rest of the party, however, were as green as gourds and we were badly frightened at the reports which came to us. We broke camp at once and our horses were urged forward, for we felt we had to make good time and get out of that particular neighborhood. We drove from that time until well into the afternoon, before we stopped to feed our horses, and to rest. Our stopping place was a furnished house, about which the only sign of life was some chickens. Later, when we were safely out of the neighborhood, my uncle told us that the Indians had driven the people from the house and stolen their cattle. We stopped overnight at Jim Graham's along the river, near where Fowler is now located, and his was the first house I had the chance of sleeping in since we left West Virginia. We finally reached a point near Pueblo and from thence went to my uncle's ranch near Beulah, arriving there on my birthday anniversary. Pueblo, at that time, was a town of perhaps 800 inhabitants. It had no water system, and no improvements to speak of; there were no railroads entering Pueblo at that early day, nor for some time afterward. "Uncle Jake Dotson had quite a cattle ranch near Beulah, with 2,000 head of cattle, 600 head of horses, and some 800 head of hogs. He furnished Fort Lyons with meats. His house was a mere shanty, covered with clay and some slabs. I well remember my first impression of that typical western ranch house. How vastly different from the surroundings of my southern home! For 6 months I did not see a white woman, with the exception of my sister-in-law, only Mexicans and Indians. Our nearest post office was Pueblo, some 35 miles distant, and at times we would not get mail oftener than once a month. "I shall never forget my early experience with the Indians. They would frequently come to our house begging something to eat. There was a party of eight came soon after my coming to Colo., and as my brother-in-law had told me never to turn them away, nor make them mad, I proceeded to get them something to eat. I prepared dinner, which I spread upon the table and asked them in. They seem to hesitate and when at last they came in and sat down at the table I was horrified to see them pick up dishes and eat out of same, rather than take food off a plate. I was quite green, but soon learned never to invite them into the house. Afterward I merely handed food out at the door, which they could eat out of their hands."

Rhodes of West Hollywood, Calif.; daughter-in-law, Vicki Carlton-Rhodes; siblings, Aloha (George) Lile, Aletta (Al) Benko, Edison (Janice) Rhodes and Otto (Gail) Rhodes; brother-in-law, Frank (Etta) Masciantonio; grandchildren, Jordan Brooke Rhodes and Jake Rhodes; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Edsel continued to work part time at Cliff Brice after 48 years of service as the warehouse manager. Rodeo and calf roping were in his blood. After teaching himself to ride at a young age, he went on to become a championship calf roper for over 57 years. He won many of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) biggest rodeos including Houston, Cheyenne Denver Stock Show, Colorado and New Mexico state fairs. In 1985 and again in '88, he was calf roping's world champion in the National Senior Pro Rodeo Association (NSPRA). He was a four-time world champion in the U.S. Calf Roping Association (USCRA) and in 2003, for the Rocky Mountain Roping Association. Edsel also teamed up with his wife, Jane, in the NSPRA ribbon roping and they took home a world- champion title for that event in '88. Edsel was a lifetime, gold card member of the PRCA and a member of the Colorado Rodeo Association. Over his remarkable career, he won seven saddles, over 100 buckles, along with numerous jackets, horse tack and more. He was the go-to mentor for many calf ropers in all levels of rodeo from Little Britches to PRCA champions. Beyond his accomplishments in rodeo, he also was a skilled horse trainer. Most importantly, Edsel was a devoted family man and Christian. He would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. To use words he commonly spoke of for others but never himself, he was an all- around good hand. Viewing, 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel.

Pueblo Chieftain – November 17, 1918 – Policeman's Son Is Killed by Automobile – Paul Ribar, age 11 years, son of patrolmen Peter Ribar, 301 ― Spring Street, died at St. Mary's Hospital yesterday afternoon, the result of injuries received at 8 o'clock yesterday morning when he was knocked down by an automobile on N. Union Ave. The boy received a fractured skull and other minor injuries and he remained unconscious until death. The automobile was driven by Mrs. E. E. Gray, 419 Van Buren St., and was proceeding south on N. Union Ave., and when near Grand Ave. it is stated she struck Paul Ribar. According to the report of the accident made by the police, it is learned that the boy was in the act of crossing from the west side to the east side of the street. It is uncertain whether the boy saw the car coming toward him or not, but the right fender struck him with such force as to throw him a distance of 27 feet, and the car then stopped 38 feet beyond where the boy landed. These measurements were obtained by the police from statements gathered from the several eye-witnesses to the accident. These witnesses, the police say, also allege that Mrs. Gray was driving very fast. Mrs. Gray picked up the boy after the accident and rushed him to St. Mary's Hospital where he was attended by Dr. J. A. Black. An inquest will be held Monday afternoon. Pueblo Chieftain – November 18, 1918 – Inquest Today – The inquest on the body of Paul Ribar, the 11-year-old son of Patrolmen Peter Ribar, will be held this afternoon at the Davis-Vories Undertaking parlors at 4 o'clock. The boy was knocked down by an automobile Saturday morning and died later in the hospital. Pueblo Chieftain – October 19, 1918 – Inquest Not Finished on Death of Youth – Inquest over the body of Fred Ribar, the 8-year-old boy who on Saturday was run down by an automobile and so seriously injured that he died a few hours later, was begun under the direction of Deputy Coroner Davis, at the parlors of Davis & Vories, at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Deputies District Attorney Langdon and Taylor were present and the testimony was taken by Stenographer Nash. Evidence of 11 witnesses was taken, and at 5:40 the inquest was adjourned until this afternoon at 4 o'clock. Those who testified were: doctors W. Oh. Patterson and J. A. Black; Police Officers Swearengen, F. S. Hoag, C. W. Patrick, John O. Gammon, F. E. Donnelly, M. Levy, David and Mansford Miller, and Mrs. Edwin E. Gray, the latter being the person driving the car which ran over the boy. Pueblo Chieftain – November 19, 1918 – The funeral of Frederick Ribar will take place this morning at 10 o'clock. Rev. Father Joseph will conduct the services. Interment in Roselawn under the direction the McCarthy Undertaking Co. Pueblo Chieftain – November 20, 1918 – Woman Held Responsible by Jury for Death of Boy – "That the deceased, Frederick Ribar, came to his death by being struck by an automobile driven by Mrs. Elizabeth E. Gray, due to the failure on the part of Mrs. Gray to observe proper precautions in driving across the street intersection with reference to speed and protection of pedestrians." After two sessions Monday and Tuesday afternoon of the coroner's jury empanelled to inquire into the cause of the death of the eight-year-old newsboy, Frederick Ribar, which occurred at the intersection of Grand and Union Ave.'s at 8:30 o'clock on the morning of November 16, the above verdict was reached. It was one of the most thorough inquiries ever made by a coroner's jury in this county. Fourteen witnesses were examined; two deputies of the District Attorney's Office were in attendance. A map of the ground where the accident occurred was introduced and often consulted and referred to; the coat of the victim was introduced in evidence; expert tests of the starting, speeding, breaking, and stopping of the same pattern and date of an automobile were made; machine of the same pattern was weighed, the safety zone dimensions were carefully taken; these and other matters of interest came before the jury. Very thorough examinations of all witnesses were made by Deputy Dist. Atty. Langdon, assisted by Deputy Taylor, while Coroner Davis watched every feature of the inquest from beginning to end. Many questions were asked by members of the jury. Testimony varied to some extent in regard to the speed of the machine, though there was little if any disputing this speed access at the street's intersection and its course there; it was some variance in evidence as to the distance the boy was thrown by the impact, some with regard to whether the machine ran over his body or knocked him to one side, and some discrepancy as to whether he was crossing the street at the time of the accident or simply standing near the curb. Among the witnesses were three newspapermen, several drivers of automobiles who were close to the scene when the accident occurred, some pedestrians, several small boys who saw what occurred, two physicians – one of whom attended the patient at the hospital and the other having performed the autopsy – and a merchant who watched the accident from his place of business. There were a number of intricate points raised, and considerable discussion was indulged in by the members of the jury.

Ricard, Mary
Mary Ricard - Pueblo Chieftain - September 24, 2012 - Female worker killed at Ark Valley Correctional Facility - A female staff member at the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility was killed by an inmate this morning during breakfast preparation, the Colorado Department of Corrections said. The incident happened in the kitchen. Another female staff member also was involved in the altercation. She was seriously injured and is being treated at this time. The names of the victims are not being released pending notification of family. The Colorado Office of the Inspector General has identified one offender suspect and the prison remains on lockdown during the investigation. The inmate's name has not been released. Tom Clements, executive director of the Department of Corrections, said he sends his deepest condolences to the families of the victims and staff members affected by the incident. A press conference is scheduled at 3 p.m. at San Carlos Correctional Facility in Pueblo. Pueblo Chieftain - September 24, 2012 - DOC shaken: Female worker killed at Ark Valley Correctional Facility - Another injured; an isolated event, official says - An unidentified female Colorado Department of Corrections officer was killed and another was seriously injured Monday morning at the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility. Colorado Department of Corrections officials released few details Monday about the homicide of a correctional officer at the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility in Crowley, about 45 miles east of Pueblo. A female officer was killed and Sgt. Lori Gann was seriously injured after at least one inmate assaulted them in the prison's kitchen during breakfast preparation. The name of the slain officer, also a sergeant, was not released. "This is a sad day for the (Department of Corrections) family. Our hearts are with our DOC staff, with the fallen officer's family and with our injured officer's family," said Alison Morgan, spokeswoman for the Colorado DOC, during a press conference Monday afternoon in Pueblo. "We are hurting. We've lost a staff member and another staff member is in the hospital." Morgan said the name of the killed officer was not being released to give family members an opportunity to contact their loved ones and personally inform them of the tragic event. The name of the suspect or suspects also has not been released. Morgan said Gann was taken to Parkview Medical Center, where she continued to be treated about 8:30 Monday. Her condition or injuries were unavailable. Neither were age or hometown specified. Gann joined DOC in March 2009 and solely has worked at the Arkansas Valley facility. Morgan, during the news conference, called the action an assault, and would not discuss details leading to the death of the officer or Gann's injuries. "We are preserving information so the criminal justice system can work the way it is supposed to work," Morgan said. Morgan said initial information seems that this was a limited, isolated assault and not a disturbance. The Colorado Office of Inspector General and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation are conducting an investigation. Morgan said the kitchen area of the facility was closed and meals were being delivered to the facility from another state prison. Morgan said the vast majority of state medium security prisons will remain locked down indefinitely to be able to provide support to the Arkansas Valley facility. Gov. John Hickenlooper visited staff at the facility. Hickenlooper said in a statement that his office is doing all it can to support the families and employees impacted by the incident. The medium security facility currently houses 999 male inmates. Morgan said this was the first death of an employee at the facility. The last state prison death was in October 2002 when Puebloan Eric Autobee was killed after being attacked by an inmate at the Limon prison kitchen. Pueblo Chieftain - September 25, 2012 - Slain prison guard identified - The woman killed Monday at the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility has been identified as Sgt. Mary Ricard, 55. Ricard was a nine-year veteran of the Department of Corrections and had transferred to the Ordway facility in 2007, according to a DOC press release. The DOC has not released further details of Ricard's death. She and Sgt. Lori Gann were assaulted Monday, reportedly in the prison's kitchen. Gann was taken to Parkview Medical Center for treatment. Her condition was not immediately available. Pueblo Chieftain - September 26, 2012 - Funeral set Monday for slain officer - A memorial service has been scheduled next week for a slain prison officer in Crowley County. A service for Sgt. Mary Ricard will be 10 a.m. Monday in the gym of Crowley County High School, said Katherine Sanguinetti, spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections. "Representatives from law enforcement across the state and nation will be there," Sanguinetti said this afternoon. Inmate Miguel Alonso Contreras-Perez, 33, has been identified as a "person of interest" in the Monday assault of Ricard and Sgt. Lori Gann in the kitchen of Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility. "At this point they haven't identified anybody else, but the investigation is ongoing so there very well may be more," Sanguinetti Ricard was supervising breakfast preparations at the time. Sanguinetti said Contreras-Perez was working in the kitchen at the time. Contreras-Perez has been transferred to the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City. Pueblo Chieftain - September 27, 2012 - The Crowley County Coroner has released the official cause and manner of death in the killing of a corrections officer Monday. According to a release from Coroner Karen Tomky, Sgt. Mary Ricard died from a stab wound to the neck. The manner of death is homicide. Ricard was killed and a second corrections officer, Sgt. Lori Gann, was wounded in the disturbance at the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility. Miguel Contreras-Perez, 33, remains classified as a "person of interest" in the slaying, said Colorado Department of Corrections spokeswoman Katherine Sanguinetti. DOC continues its investigation into the incident. Sanguinetti said the process doesn't differ much from an investigation on the street. Officers are interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence as they investigate. Contreras-Perez is serving a sentence of 35 years to life in prison after he was convicted of kidnapping and raping a 14-year-old girl in El Paso County. He has been moved to the Colorado State Penitentiary near Canon City. Meanwhile, a public memorial service honoring Ricard will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at the Crowley County High School gymnasium, 630 Main St., Ordway. Gov. John Hickenlooper will attend the service. He also has ordered all flags at public buildings in Colorado to be lowered to half-staff Monday to honor Ricard. Over the past decade, there have several high-profile disturbances at Colorado prisons. In 2004, at the privately owned Crowley County Correctional Facility nearby, about 300 inmates ransacked two cell houses and prison offices and set dozens of fires. Several inmates were injured, including two seriously. In Limon, in Northeastern Colorado, a prisoner was arrested after prison worker and Pueblo native Eric Autobee was beaten to death in 2002 by a convicted child killer wielding a ladle. DOC officers blamed staffing cuts because of state spending limits that forced the state to send more inmates to private prisons. Pueblo Chieftain - October 2, 2012 - Slain prison worker passionate about life - She was known for her pastries and her warm smile, and especially for her passion. Sgt. Mary Katherine Ricard, 55, was slain last week as she supervised prison inmates in the kitchen at the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility in Crowley. The blues and various other hues of state prison workers and law enforcement officers from around the region dominated the ranks of hundreds who gathered at Crowley County High School on a crisp autumn morning to remember the life of a woman who died at the hands of one of those she sought to help. Ricard gave up her career as a pastry chef to work in prisons "because she wanted to make a difference. She wanted to change lives," said Tony Carochi, director of prison operations for the Colorado Department of Corrections.

Richards, Michael
Michael Richards - The Pueblo Chieftain - June 29, 2012 - Pueblo police investigating transient man's death - Pueblo police have two suspects in custody on suspicion of an early morning homicide on the river bottom of the Fountain Creek. The victim's body was found in a transients' camp near the police department's shooting range. He reportedly died of blunt force trauma, according to police Sgt. Ken Espinoza. Police have not released any identities but said the victim was born in 1947. All are transients. Espinoza said an anonymous person called Thursday night to inform police about a possible body on the river bottom. The body was found following a large, lengthy search of the river bottom. Pueblo Chieftain - June 30, 2012 - Homeless pair nabbed as homicide suspects - Two men were arrested Friday in connection to a homicide in the Fountain Creek river bottom. The victim, identified as Michael Richards, 64, was found by a transient's camp near the Pueblo Police Department's shooting range in the Smelter Hill area. Richard Sheppard, 53, and Hugh Smith, 54, were arrested on warrants for second degree murder, according to jail records. Sgt. Ken Espinoza and Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said the victim sustained injuries consistent with blunt force trauma, but the exact cause of death is pending an autopsy, which is scheduled today. Espinoza said an anonymous person called police late Thursday reporting a dead body in the river bottom. More information developed Friday and the victim's body was found after a lengthy search. Sheppard and Smith were both being held in Pueblo County jail in lieu of $500,000 bail each. If Richards' death is ruled a homicide, it will be the second in Pueblo County within a week. Caleb Cosby, 22, died June 21 from a gunshot wound suffered at a Bessemer party. Pueblo Chieftain - July 1, 2012 - Autopsy Results - Death ruled homicide. Strangulation, blunt force trauma determined causes - A man found dead Friday in the Fountain Creek river bottom was beaten and strangled, the coroner said. An autopsy Saturday found that Michael Richards, 64, sustained blunt-force trauma to the head and asphyxiation, “consistent with strangulation,” Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said. Richards was found Friday morning after an anonymous caller told police a body was in the river bottom. Richards was discovered by a transient camp near the Pueblo Police Department's shooting range. Hugh Smith, 54, and Richard Sheppard, 53, were arrested on warrants for second-degree murder in connection to Richard's death. Police said the victim and suspects are transients. Pueblo Chieftain - July 6, 2012 - Transient beaten with his own leg - Suspects in the recent death of a transient man are accused of choking and beating the victim with his prosthetic leg, according to an affidavit. Michael “Peg Leg Mike” Richards, 64, was found dead early June 29 in the Fountain Creek river bottom. Hugh Smith, 54, and Richard “Shep” Sheppard, 53, are accused of killing Richards and trying to conceal his body, according to an affidavit by Pueblo police Detective Cody Wager. Neither suspect agreed to be interviewed by police. Witness James Dewitt, 47, told police he was called earlier in the night to come to the suspects' camp site, located near the police department's shooting range. The affidavit said that when Dewitt arrived he saw Richards on the ground and believed he was drunk or unconscious. Smith and Sheppard were by the body and “were arguing about something,” the affidavit said. The victim didn't have a pulse and Dewitt tried reviving him but was unsuccessful, the affidavit said. During this Shepard made a comment “I choked that (expletive) out,” the affidavit said. Later in the investigation, an unidentified man approached the camp and told detectives that “Shep had to bury Peg Leg Mike because Hugh beat him to death with his prosthetic leg,” the affidavit said. Sheppard was found at the campsite and Smith was arrested Downtown. When police found the victim his body was covered with a tarp and dirt and had been moved from the camp site, the affidavit. Richards' dentures were found about 100 feet away. Smith and Sheppard were arrested on warrants for second-degree murder. Both were being held in Pueblo County jail in lieu of $500,000 bail. Pueblo Chieftain - August 31, 2012 - 1 case dropped in man's death - Charge, however, bound over for co-defendant - A Pueblo judge dismissed a case against one of two suspects in the June death of a Pueblo West man at a homeless camp. District Judge David Crockenberg determined there wasn't enough evidence to pursue a seconddegree murder charge against Hugh Smith, 54, after a preliminary hearing Thursday. Crockenberg bound over Smith's co-defendant, Richard Sheppard, 53, on a charge of second-degree murder, but found that prosecutors didn't provide enough evidence to continue with the same charge against Smith. Both men were charged with the June 29 slaying of Michael Richards, 64, whose body was found near their campsite along Fountain Creek. On Thursday prosecutor Heidi Bauer relied upon the statements of a single witness, James DeWitt, as relayed to the court by Pueblo Police detectives. Detectives told the court DeWitt claimed Smith called him to the campsite that night and when he arrived, Smith and Sheppard were standing over Richards' body. Police said DeWitt told them Sheppard claimed he “choked out” Richards while Smith muttered profanities to himself. An autopsy determined Richards died from strangulation and blunt force trauma to his head Based on that, Crockenberg ruled he was more comfortable moving forward with the case against Sheppard. But even though there was possible blood on Smith's clothing, Crockenberg agreed with Smith's lawyer, Cobea Becker, that there was nothing to establish it was human blood and nothing else in the evidence suggested Smith participated in the murder. Sheppard entered his plea of not guilty following the hearing and a trial has been set for January.

When Boeing went on strike, they returned to Colorado Springs and bought the Pikes Peak Laundry and Cleaners. Vivian and Kyle worked together for 27 years in the laundry business. The laundry was a “family affair,” involving all six kids as well as their cousins and friends. The mantra was “work hard and play harder.” Vivian was an active member in La Sertoma, an international women's service club in the '60s and '70s.

She had many friends who were very supportive, especially her Potluck friends of over 65 years. After retiring, Vivian moved into the computer age with endless searches for family ancestors and became a great family historian. Her hobbies were collecting Pueblo memorabilia, especially City Park Dairy and Walter's Beer, Ruby Red glass and glass baskets. She was an avid sports fan (Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets and Avalanche) but especially hockey after 18 years of taking the five boys to their practices and games. She delighted in her grandchildren's sports, too, and attended every game she could. She loved antiquing, crafts, quilting, counted cross stitch and travel. Vivian loved to talk to people and was loved by all who knew her. No matter where she went, she would find someone she knew or had a connection. She often dropped everything to help someone else, friend or family. She will be greatly missed by her loving family and friends.

Ricko, Odelia
Odelia Tapia Ricko - Wilkes-Barr News - October 19, 2008 - Mrs. Odelia Ricko departed this earth Oct. 19, 2008, being 88 years, 10 months of age. She passed in the care of the Hospice Community Care Unit at Geisenger Hospital South Wilkes-Barre, PA. She was preceded in death by her husband, Leo Aloysius Ricko, in 1989; and grandsons, Eric Frank Kammer, in 2001 and Brandon Jon Gabriel, in 1976. She had remained sound of mind, faithful, stable and strong till her journey on this earth ended, and now rests in the House of the Lord. She was born Odelia Gabina Tapia, on Dec. 7, 1919, in Las Vegas, N.M., at the home of her grandparents, Clemente and Simona Garcia Chaves. A journey made especially for her birth. She is the daughter of the late Samuel and Gabina Chaves, Tapia and the eldest of four children. Her families' heritage dates back to the early Spanish Colonial Settlers of the Spanish Empire of what is now New Mexico. They have been documented living there since the mid 1600s. She was bi-lingual in Spanish, for this was the language spoken in her childhood home. While living in her hometown of Trinidad, Colo., she worked as a secretary for Trinidad Junior College. After World War II broke out, she moved to Washington, D.C., where she was employed by the War Department. It is here she met her future husband, Leo Ricko. After they wed in 1946, she and Leo moved to his hometown area in Luzerne County, Pa., and set up housekeeping. They quickly settled into the City of Plymouth and began raising their family. There she remained for the entirety of her life. She enjoyed her trips back home to Trinidad, Colo., to visit her family with whom she remained extremely close and forever missed. Her whole life she only knew hard work. Mrs. Ricko retired from the Leader Nursing Home in 1985, where she was employed as a nurse's aide for 13 years. Prior employment consisted of work in the factories. She was a devoted member of St. Vincent's Church in Plymouth. Later, after having to switch, she transferred to the newly formed Congregation of All Saints Catholic Church. In 2004, she traveled to Trinidad, Colo., to attend The Trinidad Historical Society's Indoctrination of the Tapia Family into The Century Family's of Las Animas County. Her grandparents, Jesus and Juanita Benevidez, Tapia arrived in Trinidad, from New Mexico, before 1880. She has been an active member in the Daughters of the American Revolution since 2006. This honorable recognition came through Spain's financial support for the cause, among the Militia Soldiers located at the Santa Fe Presidio, Spanish Colonial New Mexico. The obligation included the participation of her third great-grandfather, Manuel Mares in 1781 and 1785. While every heart knows its own sadness, her journey on this earth was not without trials and tribulations. But she managed them with grace and dignity, stemming from her strong faith in God. She was an extremely strong individual who loved life and never questioned the cards she was dealt. And when the end was near she just left it in God's hands. She never complained. She was especially blessed with excellent health, a hopeful and cheerful disposition, loving family and devoted friends. She passed on to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren the courage, pride and strength of her Spanish heritage. Odelia is survived by her children, Mrs. Nadine Ricko Kammer, Kingston; Mrs. Elaine Ricko Barnes, Scottsdale, Ariz.; Leo Ricko, Leesburg, Va.; John Ricko Samuels, Golden, Colo.; six grandchildren, Traci Kammer Goldberg, Jamie Kammer, Jessica Barnes, Whitley Samuels, Elijah Ricko and Emily Ricko; two great-grandchildren, Samuel Goldberg and Jaren Golderg; and her brother, Samuel Tapia, Trinidad, Colo. Her final resting place will be next to her husband, Leo, in St. Vincent's Cemetery, Larksville. Odelia will be missed greatly by her family, friends and neighbors. Our family would like to thank the angel nurses and staff of Hospice Community Care. You made mom's last moments on Earth peaceful and comfortable. She passed with respect and dignity. Something very important to her. In her memory and in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Hospice Community Care, 601 Wyoming Avenue, Kingston, PA 18704. Thank you. Funeral Mass will be held at All Saints Catholic Church, Plymouth, on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 9:30 a.m.

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

For two years prior to entering upon the practice of law, Mr. Rizer was editor of the Bowling Green (Kentucky) Democrat, during which time his editorials were widely read throughout the South.

During this long period as a judge he held the highest respect of his associates and the attorneys who practiced at his bar. He was a typical gentleman and very popular with all who knew him. Judge Rizer is survived by his mother, 88 years of age, who has made her home with him in this city for a number of years; by a brother, Y. M. Rizer of Nashville, Tennessee; and Edward F. Rizer, a nephew, who has been a civil engineer in this city for the past 14 years. Two sisters of Judge Rizer died some years ago.

Roach, Allyn Ashley
Allyn Ashley Roach - Pueblo Chieftain - August 5, 1992 - Probe continues in death of ex-Rye student - Police in Ardmore, Okla., are investigating the apparent drug-related shooting death there last week of a 16-year-old former Rye High School student. Allyn Ashley Roach was shot in the back of the head at about 11:30 p.m. last Thursday. He was declared brain dead early Friday at an Ardmore hospital and died shortly after being taken off life support, officials said. Ardmore Police Sgt. John Beene would not confirm newspaper reports that a drug deal precipitated the shooting. He said Roach was with two other youths in a pickup truck when two youths approached the truck and demanded money. When Roach and his companions refused, they started firing with a small-caliber handgun. A 17-year-old companion of Roach's also was shot, but was not seriously injured. Beene said his department is investigating the possibility that the shooting took place during a drug deal, "but we're not able to say that that was the case." Sunday, the Ardmore newspaper reported that the preliminary police investigation indicated that drugs were involved. "The three were attempting to buy drugs when the shooting occurred," reported news editor Sharon Burris. Police do know it was a birthday celebration that turned into a nightmare. Roach and the other shooting victim were celebrating the third youth's 18th birthday. Two suspects - Deandre D. Rodgers, 18, and a 17-year-old juvenile, both of Ardmore - are in custody and were arraigned Tuesday on charges of first-degree murder, shooting with intent to kill, and attempted robbery. The juvenile suspect is being charged as an adult, but the youth's identity is not available. Beene said police are seeking an arrest warrant on at least one other suspect in the case. The two in custody have known gang ties, he said. The robbery and shooting are the latest in a series of youth-related crimes in the community of 24,000 in Southern Oklahoma. "Our crime has just gone through the roof this summer," said Beene. "We've had 13 drive-by shootings since January. Fortunately, we've only had people wounded up to now." Roach moved to Ardmore from Colorado City about six months ago. According to his obituary published in Tuesday's Pueblo Chieftain, Roach was ranked sixth in his junior class in Oklahoma. Had he not been murdered, Roach would have been getting ready to go to a DARE leadership camp this week. DARE is an acronym for the Drug Awareness Resistance Education Program. Friends and former schoolmates of the slain youth were grieving his death as news reached the Colorado City/Rye area, one school administrator said. "He was one of our top kids," said Ron Ross, principal at Rye High School. "He was a real, real smart kid."

Roach, George S.
George S. Roach – Pueblo Chieftain – June 21, 1917 – Tourist Dies As Result of Gunshot Wound Accidentally Inflicted – George S. Roach, of Salt Lake City was accidentally killed yesterday morning by the accidental discharge of his own revolver at the Fairmont Park camping grounds. The accident occurred while Mrs. Roach was cleaning up the breakfast dishes. Roach went to the rear of his automobile and was extricating some tools from the car when his revolver became entangled with the tools and was accidentally discharged. The bullet struck him in the abdomen and he died a minute later. Mrs. Roach is prostrated and is in a critical condition. It is feared by the attending physicians that she will lose her reason. The couple was on their way to Orleans, Indiana, and motored into Pueblo Tuesday night. They decided to spend the night at the campgrounds at the park and proceed eastward today. The body will be forwarded to Orleans by Davis-Vories. Coroner Dr. Ray Taylor was called immediately after the accident and upon examination found that the bullet had entered the abdomen and took an upward course severing a valve of the heart. Pueblo Chieftain – June 22, 1917 – Mystery Deepens in Roach Death; Woman Disappears – Message from Salt Lake Declares Woman with Man Who Accidentally Killed Himself at Fairmount Park Was Not His Wife – The woman who was with George Roach, when he accidentally shot and killed himself at Fairmount Park Wednesday morning, was not his wife, according to word received here yesterday afternoon. Roach's wife is in Ogden, Utah, said the message, and the Pueblo authorities were urged to make an investigation and determine who the woman with Roach really was. The woman left town and her destination is not known at present. Ray Davis, of Davis & Vories Undertaking Co., stated last night that he was suspicious of the relations of the couple when he questioned the woman yesterday while making out the death certificate. Unable to answer some of the questions Davis asked her, she finally admitted that they were not married and further declared that she and Roach were on their way back east where they were to be married as soon as Roach obtained a divorce from his present wife. She refused to divulge her name or where she came from but admitted that she was from some town in Utah. Davis presumed from her conversation that she was from a prominent family. As far as can be learned the woman left Pueblo yesterday afternoon. The body of Roach was sent to Orleans, Indiana, where his mother lives for interment. Some persons who met the woman after Roach died state that she did not seem as much concerned over his death as if she was really his wife and expressed doubt as to the truthfulness of her statements immediately after the accident. The couple arrived in Pueblo Tuesday in an automobile and spent the night at the municipal campgrounds for tourists at Fairmont Park. She said they were on their way to Orleans to visit his mother.

People residing in the vicinity of the shooting, heard shots went into the street and found Roacha lying dead in a pool of blood. The police were called and the patrol with a number of officers arrived on the scene of the tragedy. On investigation it was found that Roacha was only a few feet from his doorstep when assassinated. Bullets fired from a high caliber pistol were found in Roacha's body. It is believed by the police that four or five shots were fired at the Mexican, each hitting him in the head. Coroner Ray Taylor searched the man's body and room but found nothing that pointed to a possible clue. The police have the case in hand, but up to a late hour last night had found no clew to the murderer.

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.

Roberts, Harry
Harry Roberts - Rocky Mountain News - August 11, 1889 - Thugs and Thieves - A Select Assortment of “Mugs” from the Rogues' Gallery of the Police Department - Men and Women Who Have Made Their Mark in Upper Circles as Skillful Crooks - Detective Same Howe Culls a Few Choice Selections from a Quarter of a Century's Experience - Sam Howe! For the past sixteen years his name has appeared almost daily in the Denver papers chronicling some criminal case he has brought to a finish. Sam Howe is a member of the city detective department, and during the past decade almost he has handled thousands of cases. He is reckoned as one of the shrewdest detectives in the country and has the reputation of never having worked more than forty-eight hours on any one case of which he had charge… He has collected, since he has been on the force, thirteen volumes of newspaper literature, which he clips daily and pastes in scrap books, and the record is complete. Mention to him a name in the rogues' gallery, and he will find the photograph immediately and tell the man's history… Harry Roberts, alias Jennette, was one of the shrewdest housebreakers Detective Howe ever arrested. He came to Denver from Kansas City. His method was to enter windows in the night. It mattered but little to Roberts how a window was fastened, for there was none he could not get through. He always carried with him a dull knife, which he would pass between the sashes and push the catch aside, when he could easily raise the window and climb in. In case it was one of the patent locks, which has a spring, he would use a blade with an ear on one side so that the small bar would not slip, and with it he would raise the spring, until with the knife he would push the lock away. Should it be such a fastening that it could not be forced from the outside, Roberts had a way of overcoming that difficulty. He would take several strips of court plaster, paste on the glass, and then with a diamond cut the glass; the plaster would keep the severed piece from falling and alarming the inmates, after which it was but an easy trick to unlock any lock that might be fixed on the inside of the window, while if the window was supplied with an alarm bell, why, he simply sawed out the sashes with a fine strip of steel, and entered the house without any apparent effort. Windows were nothing to him. He managed to get considerable property, and was captured November 20, 1875, and sentenced to fifteen years. After serving eight he was removed to the Pueblo Insane asylum, where he died.

John was born in Branson Feb. 14, 1922, to Lon and Nettie (Hallmark) Robertson. He had two older sisters, Louise and Georgie and grew up primarily in the area he ranched most of his life. He went to school at Tobe and Kim, graduating from Kim in 1941. Following graduation, he enlisted in the Navy and served as sonar operator on an anti-submarine patrol in the South Pacific during World War II. After the war, he came home and began work at putting together the ranch and home he would enjoy for the remainder of his life. John married June Green of Branson Sept. 14, 1950 in LaJunta. Together they raised their five children on the ranch that John and his father started. The ranch was his livelihood, his treasure, his church and his responsibility and he didn't take any of those lightly. John was proud of his children and their accomplishments and the fact that they all learned to stand up for themselves and their families. He enjoyed being around, playing with and talking to his 14 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. He was an ardent supporter of the opposition effort against expansion of the Piņon Canyon Maneuver Site. He spent countless hours writing letters and poems that were printed regularly in many of the newspapers in the area in a effort to help people understand the potential atrocity. Although John preferred and felt it necessary to work every day, a hobby of sorts come from his love of cutting wood and posts with his chainsaw. No matter the time of year or the temperature, relaxation for him consisted of gassing and sharpening up his saw and spending an entire morning in “the cedars” cutting wood or posts. He was preceded in death by his parents, Lon in 1951 and Nettie in 1956; and sisters, Louise and Georgie. John is survived by his wife June of the home, his children, Nancy (Lester) Jackson of Kim, Susan (Richard) Cox of Rocky Ford, Janey Swentzell of Pueblo West, Lon (Anita) Robertson of Branson, Becky (Hoyt) Hugg of Amarillo.

Robinson, Donald W.
Donald W. Robinson - Trinidad Times Independent - January 4, 2008 - Donald W. Robinson of Segundo was a restless spirit who set out to make his way in the world at 13, although he first began working when he was only 10 years old. He toiled at a variety of jobs in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Vermont, especially on farms. During World War II, Don joined the U. S. Merchant Mariners and served on Liberty ships and ships of general commerce intermittently during the War and beyond. He cruised in both the Atlantic and Pacific, seeing much of the world. Between sea duties, Don traveled around the country, mostly hobo-style, and worked in California, Florida, Colorado, and other locations. Don enjoyed his experiences, including the rough ones, and most of the broad variety of people he met. He told his stories to any and all who would listen. It's a great loss that none were ever put in writing. Born February 3, 1917 to Frank and Jane (Richards) Robinson in Tewksbury, Mass., Don was raised in Lowell and Boston. On November 5, 1953, he married a beautiful young lady, Elsie V. Haskell of Gilford, N.H. Shortly thereafter they moved to Colorado because Don took great joy in the mountains and wide-open spaces. Don built a cabin by hand where they lived on Mountain View Drive in Blue Valley (Idaho Springs) in 1962 through 1964, but settled in Lakewood then Denver. Don and Elsie briefly returned to New Hampshire in the mid-1960s, but the mountains called them back again. Don's chatty but brusque disposition was known to co-workers at Bennett Oil, Livran Electric, Arapahoe National Forest, the Salvation Army, and Consolidated Electrical Distributors. In 1982, Don happily retired and took Elsie to try living in Gainesville, Mo., where they found the bugs and humidity inhospitable but the people interesting and friendly. So, in 1985 Don and Elsie moved to their “little adobe” near Segundo, enjoying a beautiful view all around and good friendship with the late Sam Visconti, and pleasant acquaintance with many others. Surviving Don are his wife, Elsie, of Segundo, son Forrest (Vicki) of Blackhawk, and daughters Kathy (Cliff) Franklin of Arvada, and Donna Robinson of Lakewood. Also missing him are his beloved grandchildren Beau (Kate) Scott of Denver, Anthony Kotris of Lakewood, Glenn Scott of Arvada, and Nicholas Kotris and Kristina Kotris of Lakewood. Two great-grandsons, Samuel Rodriguez and Leif Scott are also left behind. Services will be held at Mullare-Murphy Funeral Home in Trinidad, January 5, at 11 a.m. The family respectfully requests any remembrances be donations in Don's memory to the Helping Hands Ministries PCBH at 1101 Arizona Ave., Trinidad, CO, 81082, where his last days were made comfortable.

Griz was born July 2, 1952, in Pueblo, and was a lifelong Pueblo resident. He enjoyed spending time with his wife and girls. Piling the girls in the sidecar, the family traveled to many locations. From camping in Tin Cup, Colo., cruising the Black Hills and Sturgis, S.D., soaking in the warm mineral baths of New Mexico, to spending time at the Stewart family cabin in Rye, all the vacations were so memorable. Griz also enjoyed the time he spent volunteering for the Pueblo County High School Band, while Gracie and Lesley were members. Griz was a well-known fixture in the Colorado motorcycle community. He was the owner and operator of The Chop Shop since 1975, and was known for doing excellent work. He loved the challenge of taking on jobs which other shops would turn away. He had a passion for Pan Head Harley-Davidsons and had quite an impressive collection, of which he rode a different bike to work everyday. Additionally, Griz raced Top Fuel Harley drag bikes for 30 years. In 2000, he was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame at the Rocky Mountain Cycle Museum, located in Colorado Springs. In 2004, he was the first Colorado racer to break the 200 mile-per-hour mark in the quarter-mile, hitting 202 mph. Later that year, at the Sturgis Dragway, Griz won it all! In 2006, Griz upped his quarter-mile mark to 211 mph; a record he still holds today. Special thanks to his pit crew, Frankie (Paulette), Jaws, Bullwinkle, Dee and Ralph; his sponsors; and all who supported and cheered him on for so many years. Griz and Denise have participated in every Toy Run since its inception in 1977. No matter how cold or how much snow was on the ground, you could count on seeing him there. Griz was a member of All Harley Drag Racing Association, National Hot Rod Association and Pueblo County Band Boosters. There will be no viewing. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium.

Pueblo Chieftain - November 20, 2011 - Bikers set the table Ministry's Harvest Run helps needy families with holiday meal - Thanksgiving came early Saturday and it came with a roar of motorcycles. The sixth annual Harvest Run, organized by Thunder Road Ministry and Steel City Biker Church, delivered food to about 200 needy families. This year's run was dedicated to Greg "Griz" Robinson, who died in a motorcycle accident in 2009. What's different about the Harvest Run is organizers collected monetary donations instead of food and then bought food at Mesa LaGrees grocery store. "LaGrees was kind enough to work with us," said Steel City Pastor Curtis Hubbell. Need outnumbered donations, so the church was hoping to offset costs with a chili cook-off after the run. Votes for the best chili were made with donations at each sampling station. "I don't care if you put a dollar or a hundred dollars -- it doesn't' matter to me," Hubbell told the crowd of more than 50, gathered at the Pueblo Christian Activity Center, 2039 Alma Ave. Tami Vickery, the event's main organizer, said the down economy affected donations this year. Some food baskets had store gift cards to buy turkeys, Vickery said, because the church couldn't find enough to purchase. Of the 200 families, 80 received actual turkeys. "Most places I went to, they were willing to give me product, but we couldn't get enough turkeys," Vickery said. "And donations were down this year. It was the economy. . . . We had more people trying to get on the list this year. I have a waiting list that we won't be able to satisfy." The Harvest Run rolled on in good spirits and faith with bikers from Trinidad to Colorado Springs, despite high wind warnings. "This is a bunch of tough guys," Vickery said. "They're out there."

He also was adored by his 14 grandchildren. Richard was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1953 in New York City, an act that changed his life so dramatically that his goal for the next 61 years was to share the promised hope of God's Kingdom with everyone he met. He served as an Overseer/Elder in various congregations for more than 60 years. Richard owned Champion Construction since 1975. He volunteered much of his time and abilities to building Kingdom Halls throughout the states of Colorado, Texas, Wyoming and New Mexico. His love for Jehovah God made him the most loyal husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He would not want us to grieve, for he knew we would see him again in paradise here on the Earth, where suffering and pain will be no more. We all anxiously await that day. Richard was a very private and humble person, he never wanted to be the center of attention, nor wanted his kind works to be made known to others. He couldn't bear the idea of his friends and family mourning for him, so for these reasons, per his request, there will be no public memorial service. A private family gathering will be held.

Roderick, Dawn Jean
Dawn Roderick - Pueblo Chieftain - November 30, 2013 - Pueblo County authorities said today that the three people found dead in a burning house near Rye on Wednesday were shot to death before the fire. Related Search for Rye triple homicide suspect continues; new photo released Friends remember Rye fire victim Rye couple remembered as caring, happy-to-help. Sheriff Kirk Taylor identified the victims as Reginald Tuttle, 51; his wife, Kim Tuttle, 55; and the couple's daughter, Dawn Roderick, 33. Taylor said they saw evidence of “multiple gunshot wounds” on the bodies as firefighters tried to control the blaze. He said the victims were shot while they slept, and that investigators found several points of origin for the fire. Harry Mapps, 59, who was a person of interest in the case, is now a suspect in a triple homicide, Taylor said. The sheriff also said Mapps cashed two checks from the Tuttles' bank account -- each for $4,000 -- in Pueblo and La Junta on the day of the fire. Taylor said that money was the motive for the killings and that Mapps is a murder suspect, but for now he's wanted on suspicion of identity theft, theft above $5,000 and forgery. Taylor said a witness saw Mapps at the home on the morning of the fire. Mapps had lived in the basement for about six months and was an employee of Reginald Tuttle's trucking business, Taylor said. Taylor also confirmed that Roderick had recently moved into the home with her three children, and that Mapps likely was asked to move out. Taylor said he doesn't believe Mapps is still in the area. Taylor revealed the information during an afternoon news conference at his office. A large group of the victims' relatives and friends stood outside during the briefing and declined comment afterward. A nationwide search is under way for Mapps. He's considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, contact your local law enforcement agency immediately. Pueblo Chieftain - December 8, 2013 - Dawn Jean Roderick.

Pueblo Chieftain - January 29, 2010 - Bond denied for slaying suspect: Lorenzo Gonzales indicted in shooting death of Carlos Romero. A Pueblo district judge ruled that a man accused of shooting randomly into an East Side garage in September, killing 18-year-old Carlos Romero, will remain in jail without bail. The ruling from District Judge Thomas Flesher came after a three-hour bond hearing that played out like a preliminary hearing. Lorenzo Gonzales, 19, was indicted by the Pueblo grand jury in December on charges of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted first-degree murder. On Thursday, the court heard from two Pueblo police detectives, who outlined their investigation into the shooting. Police say Lorenzo Gonzales and fellow gang member Anthony Gonzales were walking by the garage at 1638 E. Fifth St. around 3 a.m. on Sept. 25. Police said Romero was in the garage with five others that night. Witness accounts differ as to what happened next, but police say the encounter between Gonzales and the men in the garage ended with seven shots fired through the garage door and Romero dead. The prosecution's key witnesses include Anthony Gonzales and Lorenzo Gonzales' 16-year-old girlfriend, Alicia Dennel. Neither witness testified Thursday. Instead, their statements to police were conveyed by Pueblo detectives Don Litton and Mark Bravo in court. Public Defenders Allison Ernst and David Lobato challenged Dennel's credibility. Litton testified that Dennel told police Lorenzo Gonzales called her repeatedly the night of the murder, including a phone call placed at 3:15 a.m. where he allegedly told her he needed to talk because of an emergency. But Ernst noted that phone records don't show Gonzales' first call until after 4 a.m. She also told police Gonzales admitted to her that he shot into the garage. Litton testified that the girl told police Lorenzo didn't appear to show much remorse so she placed a copy of The Pueblo Chieftain opened to Romero's obituary in plain view in their apartment. Litton said police found the paper in Gonzales' apartment open to the obituary page. Ernst argued that police arrested her client after a domestic violence incident with Dennel and that she made her statements about the murder following the police response to the call. Lobato focused on inconsistencies between stories told by witnesses inside the garage and the story told by Anthony Gonzales. Bravo testified that Anthony Gonzales told police he asked Lorenzo Gonzales to walk him home from a party that night because he knew Lorenzo had a gun. According to police, the pair were walking by the garage and they heard what they thought were female voices. Bravo said Anthony Gonzales told police they originally wanted to party with who they thought were girls, then changed their plans and decided simply to steal the beer. According to Bravo's testimony, Anthony Gonzales knocked on the door and said it was the police. Then, as he ducked to try to look through the garage doors, Lorenzo started shooting. Witnesses from inside the garage said they stopped playing music and that there was a pause before the shooting started. Lobato also noted inconsistencies between Anthony Gonzales' story and Dennel's. Police said Dennel claimed Lorenzo told her he heard disparaging remarks about his gang before the shooting started. Anthony Gonzales didn't mention remarks before the shooting. Ernst asked Flesher to set a low bond amount, arguing that the only evidence presented at the hearing were statements collected from witnesses and retold by police. She said there was no physical evidence yet linking Gonzales to the crime. Shoe casts and ballistics tests on seven shell casings found at the scene are still with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. But Deputy District Attorney Bob Case argued the statements were evidence enough to link Gonzales to the crime. Two witnesses told police he was responsible and their stories fit with the stories of other witnesses inside the garage. Gonzales' next appearance is set for Feb. 22. Pueblo Chieftain - September 25, 2010 - Gang member testifies in murder trial - A Pueblo man so dedicated to his street gang that he had "East Side" tattooed on his upper lip and "13" on his chin testified against a fellow gang member Friday. Anthony Brandon Gonzales, 21, told a jury that he was with Lorenzo Oscar Gonzalez, 19, the night of Sept. 24, 2009, and into the next morning when Gonzalez opened fire on an East Side garage, killing Carlos Romero, 18. Gonzalez is charged with first-degree murder and five counts of attempted first-degree murder. During his testimony, Anthony Gonzales told the jury that he accompanied his friend home from another party that night to protect against getting jumped. Gonzales said that as the two men were walking east in an alley between Fourth and Fifth streets near Portland Avenue, they heard music. "I tried to look for a window by the fence (near the garage), then I tried to find a crack in the doors," Gonzales said. He told the court he put his ear up to the door and only heard music. Gonzales said he knocked on the door and said "police." "I was just trying to get their attention," he said. "It sounded like a party. I was going to fight them for their beer or something." Moments later, shots were fired and the two men took off, running east down the alley. Gonzales told the jury that when the men stopped running, he confronted Lorenzo Gonzalez about the gunshots. He said Gonzalez replied that he "(messed) up." Anthony Gonzales was one of the district attorney's two key witnesses who testified Friday. Under cross-examination by Public Defender Allison Ernst, he admitted that he told Keith Massey, an investigator for the Public Defender's office, that he made up much of his statement to police last October so that he could have a chance to be around for his newborn baby. Gonzales also has a deal with the district attorney that could spare him any prison time on an unrelated burglary case in exchange for his testimony. Gonzales was arrested in May on a warrant for first-degree burglary and assault for an April 19 home invasion. The deal will allow him to plead guilty to second-degree burglary and third-degree assault and receive a year in jail and six years' probation. A 10-year prison term will be suspended if he completes probation. Ernst also suggested that Gonzales succumbed to high-pressure interrogation tactics by Pueblo police detectives. Gonzales never said he felt pressured, but did admit that he was afraid the gangs would punish him or his family for giving information to police. Under questioning by Deputy District Attorney Stephen Talbot, Gonzales admitted that he gave varying stories to detectives because he was trying to help his friend. Police didn't arrest Gonzales until they were given his street name by Alicia Dennel, Lorenzo Gonzalez's girlfriend. Dennel also testified Friday, telling the court that Lorenzo Gonzalez started calling her phone around 3 a.m. the following morning. She said she shares a cell phone with her grandmother and that Gonzalez eventually left a message for her around 4 a.m. The next day Gonzalez confided in her that he shot at the garage, she said. Dennel testified that she read Romero's obituary to Gonzalez and that he simply said that no good kids would be out that late and that the obituary made Romero look too good. She also told police that Gonzalez had seven bullets with him and that, although she read newspaper articles about the case, that's not how she knew the number of bullets. Police found seven shell casings at the scene. Dennel didn't make her first statement to police until after they were called to respond to a domestic violence incident between her and Gonzalez. Under cross- examination by Ernst, Dennel admitted she was drunk the night police were called and angry because Gonzalez had beaten her. Dennel also admitted that she continued to "date" Gonzalez up to a few days ago, despite the fact that Gonzalez has been in jail for nearly a year and that he was exchanging messages with other women. "I'm not angry now," she said. "I moved on two months ago." Dennel's testimony also differed from Anthony Gonzales' in a few ways. First, she said Lorenzo Gonzalez told her the men heard something in the garage that was disrespectful of the East Side Dukes. Anthony Gonzales told the court that all he heard was music before the shooting started. Dennel said it was Anthony Gonzales who asked Lorenzo Gonzalez to walk him home because he knew Lorenzo had a gun. Anthony Gonzales didn't mention the gun as protection. Finally, the jury heard from Dennel's grandmother, who testified that Dennel told her about the murder and Lorenzo Gonzalez's admission just a few days after the incident and before the domestic violence call. The trial continues Tuesday. Pueblo Chieftain - September 29, 2010 - Murder trial focuses on shooting evidence - Records collected from Lorenzo Gonzalez's cellular phone shows that he attempted to contact his then-girlfriend soon after he allegedly shot wildly into an East Side garage. The contacts came in the form of a few text messages and the first phone call didn't occur until an hour later. Gonzalez, 19, is charged with first-degree murder for the Sept. 25, 2009, killing of Carlos Romero, 18, while he hung out with friends in a garage at the corner of East Fifth Street and Portland Avenue that had been converted into a game room. Alicia Dennel, 17, who formerly was Gonzalez's girlfriend, told the jury last week that Gonzalez had confided in her that he shot into the garage and that he called her around 3 a.m. the morning of the shooting. On Tuesday, Pueblo Police Detective Donald Litton testified the phone records showed that Gonzalez sent a text message to Dennel's phone at 2:50 a.m. and again at 2:51 a.m., but the phone calls didn't start coming until 4:10 a.m. Investigators said Romero was shot around 3 a.m. Public Defender Allison Ernst also noted that there were several other numbers listed in the phone records between the time of the text message and the phone calls. Under her questioning, Litton said he didn't try to identify who any of the other numbers belonged to. Dennel also had testified that she confronted Gonzalez with Romero's obituary after Gonzalez told her about the shooting. Pueblo Police Detective Nikki Thomas told the jury she found two newspaper pages, including Romero's obituary, on the floor of Gonzalez's apartment. Investigators also testified about the number of bullets recovered at the scene, the number of bullet holes in the garage door, footprints collected from an alley and the details of Romero's autopsy. The trial continues today.

Jimmie Romero - Longmont Times-Call - March 14, 2012 - Jimmie Romero, 80, of Boulder County, died Friday, March 9, 2012.

At the age of 9 he was moved to the State Home and Training School at Grand Junction and then admitted to the Colorado State Hospital in Pueblo due to his learning disabilities. We can only assume that these were dark and lonely days for Jimmie. In 1969, at the age of 38, Jimmie was transferred to Boulder to live at the newly opened Carmel House on the hill. It was here that Jimmie met life-long friends, obtained the skills necessary to eventually live on his own and began working in the community. Most notably Jim worked at Taco Bell and in Kmart's garden center. In 1987, Boulder County ARC selected Jimmie as its Employee of the Year. In later years, Jimmie volunteered in the community through his senior program with Community Link and enjoyed delivering meals to the elderly and working with children.

The Pueblo Police Department is investigating the crash that happened at about 4:48 a.m. Police officer Anthony Masciotra said at least two people were ejected in the crash including the 9-yearold boy. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer identified the boy as John Romero. The other occupants in the vehicle have not been identified. Five were taken to Parkview Medical Center and the other to St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center. Masciotra said the family, from New Mexico, was on its way to a soccer game in Denver. A man, who also was traveling to the Denver soccer tournament, said the occupants were from Albuquerque and played on the same team as the driver. “We all left at separate times,” the man said. He and his family were in Denver when they heard the news of the crash. The man called the Chieftain to inquire about the crash and would not identify himself. The driver allegedly fell asleep behind the wheel between mile markers 94 and 95, between the exits to Pueblo Boulevard and Indiana Avenue.

Romo, Chris
Chris Romo - Pueblo Chieftain - June 26, 2012 - Ruling could bring new life to juvenile murderers - An announcement from the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday may bring the hope of freedom to 48 Colorado inmates, including Puebloan Phillip Montoya, who were sentenced as juveniles to life in prison without parole. In a 5-4 ruling, the court determined that mandatory life sentences for juvenile defendants are unconstitutional. Since 1991, Colorado has had a mandatory life sentence for defendants convicted of first-degree murder. Montoya, 35, is serving a life sentence after he was convicted as an adult for the June 1993 murder of Chris Romo. Montoya was 16 when he was convicted. Monday's court decision focused on two cases involving 14-year-old suspects convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life without parole according to mandatory sentencing guidelines in their states. In one case, Evan Miller and another boy beat and robbed one of their neighbors in an Alabama community and the neighbor died after the boys set the house on fire. In the second case, Kuntrell Jackson was convicted of participating in an Arkansas video store robbery in which one of his two codefendants shot and killed the store clerk. The court ruled that life sentences without the possibility of parole for juvenile defendants don't consider the diminished culpability of young people, such as their lack of maturity, lessened sense of responsibility and vulnerability to outside pressures. The court ruled such sentences violated the children's Eighth Amendment rights protecting them against cruel and unusual punishments. The court's decision left it up to the states to determine what sentencing standards are appropriate for juvenile convicts. Whatever the Legislature decides, it's likely to be retroactive, said Pueblo defense attorney Randy Jorgensen. Jorgensen said that since the ruling was based on a Constitutional argument, it's likely that it will invalidate the life sentences imposed on cases that have already been decided, including Montoya's. "I would assume that Colorado would have to modify its sentencing structure and you're going to start seeing a lot of (sentence reconsideration) hearings," Jorgensen said. As a defense attorney, Jorgensen said it was the right decision and a long time in coming. "I think most enlightened societies understand there's a difference in how juveniles view the world," Jorgensen said. Pueblo District Attorney Bill Thiebaut said his office is reviewing the ruling to determine how best to advise victims and their families. He noted that the ruling focuses specifically on mandated life terms and that the possibility of a life sentence without parole still rests in the discretion of the trial judge.

"Everybody deserves to be remembered and for some, this is the only way that family and friends can gain closure is by holding a service like this." As part of the event, Yarbrough said family and friends are invited to share their memories about those who have died this year. The Pueblo Veterans Ritual team also will offer a 21-gun salute in honor of the two homeless veterans - Daryl Holt and Thomas Reynolds - who died this year.

Roper, James Thomas
James Thomas Roper - Trinidad Times Independent - April 13, 2012 - James Thomas Roper died Saturday, April 7, 2012. Jim was born Oct. 17, 1930, in Brilliant, N.M., to Alex Anderson and Margaret Hay Anderson. In 1938, his mother was remarried to Lyle D. Roper, at which time Jim took the name Roper. Jim married his first love, Joyce Brunelli, on Aug. 1, 1950. She was killed by a drunk driver Oct. 12, 1973. Jim married Flolene Porterfield Main on Dec. 7, 1974. Jim was a man of many facets, but he will always be remembered as Mr. KRTN. Jim first went to work for KRTN radio when he was a senior in high school in December 1948, just 20 days after KRTN went on the air. Jim ultimately purchased 20 percent of KRTN in 1962, purchased it in its entirety in February 1964 and maintained ownership until 2005. Jim was truly a broadcast pioneer and was inducted into the New Mexico Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2001. Jim had a great love for the youth of his community; he wore a whistle as a basketball referee for 27 years and umpired baseball for 35 years before retiring in 1986. He sponsored dances for youths so they would have something to do and he was an avid supporter of 4-H and FFA, so much so that he was given an Honorary State Farmer degree in 1970 and was presented with the Distinguished Service Award by the New Mexico FFA in 1985. Jim talked of growing up around his grandfather Tom Hay Sr. and how much he learned from him. This is where his love for the intricacies of one of New Mexico's most precious resources was formed and why he faithfully served his community in working to create a viable long-term solution for their drinking water. He served on the Raton Water Board for more than 37 years and was instrumental in acquiring the water rights Raton now enjoys from Eagle Nest Lake. He was even sometimes referred to as the Water Czar. Jim knew water was important to the growth of Raton, but he also knew that it needed new opportunities, in 1973, Jim was an instrumental organizer and lead guide for board members of the NRA as they toured northeastern New Mexico for a site of the complete outdoor shooting experience. That tour led to what is now the world-recognized NRA Whittington Center. Jim was very proud of his humble roots and wore the fact of growing up in a coal camp proudly on his sleeve, as years went on and with the old camps closed he became one of Colfax County's authorities on the coal camps, of northern New Mexico, and their history. Jim was preceded in death by his mother, Margaret Hay Roper; his biological father Alex Anderson; his father, Lyle D. Roper; his maternal grandparents Tom and Agnes Hay; his paternal grandparents James and Mary Anderson; his sister, Margaret Alaine Roper; and his first wife, Joyce Brunelli Roper. Survivors include his loving wife of 37 years, Flolene Porterfield Main Roper of Raton and his children, Karen Janway of Albuquerque, N.M., Steve Roper of Chicago, Mary Lynn Roper (Sheryl Paloni) of Albuquerque, Mark Roper (Monica) of Roswell, N.M., Donna Henderson (Bob) of Page, Ariz., Ann Maestas (Ernie) of San Antonio, Texas, Bob Main (Robin Deck) of Gainsville, Mo., Jean Crist (Lane) of Clayton, N.M., Sandra Main of Los Lunas, N.M., Jackie Shaw (Gary) of Mills, N.M., Frank Main (Debbie) of Castle Rock and Richard “Hunker” Main (Julie) of Raton. He is also survived by 21 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at the First Baptist Church in Raton at 11 a.m. Monday, April 16, with Pastor Bruce Kirby officiating. Arrangements and celebration of love for Jim Roper are under the direction of the Yaksich-Long Funeral Home of Raton.

Roper, John Michael
John Michael Roper - Denver Catholic Register - May 24, 1916 - Alamosa, Colo., May 24 - Special Train for John Michael Roper Burial Honors Him - On Wednesday of last week a special train conveyed the family and friends of the late John Michael Roper to Conejos, where the body was interred. He was a pioneer of Colorado and came to the San Luis Valley in an early day. After the Civil War, in which he served with honors, he went to Denver with his family and worked on the Denver and Rio Grande when that railroad extended only a mile from Denver.

Ross, Robert R. (Judge)
Robert R. Ross - Pueblo Chieftain - April 23, 1919 - Judge Ross Dead - Trinidad, Colo., April 22 - Robert R. Ross, pioneer resident and county judge for the past 16 years, is dead at the age of 62. Judge Ross was active politically and was a state representative from Huerfano County for a number of years. Pueblo Chieftain – April 26, 1919 – That Kind of Court Judge – Robert B. Ross, age 66, Judge of the County Court, Trinidad, is dead. He lived there nearly 40 years. His second wife was Miss McLean from a prominent family of Lamar. There were 3 children, 2 sons being in Calif. when their father died. Judge Ross was a member of several Trinidad lodges. He was originally in railroad engineer service as foreman of construction. Death was sudden, caused by apoplexy; he attended Easter service last Sunday. This Judge Ross was the real thing as an interpreter of human nature and a comrade of youth, and did not pose for public affect or make money by giving lectures as "the boys' friend." After he is dead and gone his home paper thus describes Judge Ross' official views and ways: "Living in this community for 40 years, he probably knew more of its citizens intimately than any other man. It was a pleasure to watch his court procedure. Formalities, and court ethics were dispensed with. Many times the judge knew those who came before him for a score of years or more. He knew the offender's history, the family surroundings, and it was no use for the offender to attempt to state anything but the real facts. Judge Ross, in making his decisions, took into consideration this fundamental fact and it was: would the community be better off by sending this man to prison? Will the family suffer and become public charges? "Talking with him during the recent wave of juvenile crime in this city, he mentioned how it hurt him to have to try these youngsters. He saw that many of them had not had the right chance. He said "If I were a rich man, I would send every one of these boys to a first-class military school, not a penal institution. I have confidence enough in them to say now that in a few years all of them would be better physically, mentally, and morally than they will be after they leave Golden or Buena Vista."

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

Roundtree, G. H. (Mrs.)
Mrs. G. H. Roundtree - Pueblo Chieftain – January 24, 1919 – Former Pueblo Woman Dies from Exposure in Storm – From Rocky Ford comes the information that Mrs. G. H. Roundtree formerly of this city, and her mother, Mrs. I. M. Cassie, have died at a hospital in that city from effects of exposure they suffered in a recent snowstorm while attempting to reach Rocky Ford from a homestead they were holding down north of Ordway, in Crowley County. It seems that the two women decided to move to Rocky Ford for the remainder of the winter, and so last Wednesday they started for that city with a team and light wagon driven by a boy named Eichelburg of Rocky Ford. When about 18 miles on the way from Ordway they were caught in a driving blizzard; the snow drifted so badly that it was impossible for the team to pull the wagon along the road. The driver unhitched the horses and started on one of them for Rocky Ford for help, the women making themselves as comfortable as possible in the wagon. Some hours later a man and woman named Floury came along the road and found the two women almost frozen, took them back 3 miles to a vacant though furnished cabin. They left them there as Mrs. Roundtree said she would build a fire in a stove, but on attempting to do so she failed because of her benumbed condition. She crawled into a bed with her mother, and the next day the cattlemen discover them almost dead with the cold. He built a fire and made some hot coffee for the two women. He then rode to a neighbor and persuaded them to take Mrs. Roundtree and Mrs. Cassie to Rocky Ford in their automobile. Young Eichelburg had reached his destination but had been unable to induce anyone to go to the relief of the women. Mrs. Cassie died at Dr. Pollock's hospital on the evening of their arrival, Thursday, and Mrs. Roundtree died at 7 o'clock Friday evening. Both were buried at Rocky Ford.

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

Born in Decatur, Ill., Nov. 10, 1917, she was the daughter of Julia Mae Dowell Hilliard and John Emmerson Hilliard. She is survived by her sister, Wanda Lee Crozier of Winona, Minn.; her Yorkie-Poo companion of over 10 years, Su-Su; and many nephews and nieces. An inquisitive soul who had a resourceful and creative mind, a passion for life, peace and a love for learning. She loved her family, to cook, her books and to travel. Like her mother, Loraine also was an herbalist as well as a lifelong student of metaphysics. An avid outdoors person, she enjoyed fishing and hunting from upper Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and was quite the marksman. A kind and caring individual, a wise and loving woman. Her grace and spirit was an inspiration. She touched the lives of those around her and will be missed by her family and all who knew her. There are no words adequate to describe the lovely person Loraine was, the good that she did, the depth of feeling with which she will be missed.
