Jose Salazar - Pueblo Chieftain - June 15, 1917 – Puebloans Who Registered For Selective Army Draft – Appended are young Puebloans between the ages of 21 and 30 years inclusive, who registered in city precincts for the selective draft to the United States army: Precinct No. 31 – Jose Salazar. Pueblo Chieftain – July 21, 1917 – America Selects an Army as German Legislators Pass Peace Resolutions – Numbers Drawn Fifteen a Minute – Process Is Slower Than First Thought, However, and the Work Will Not Be Completed in the Ten Hours – Washington, July 20 – Selective conscription was put into effect today when a national lottery fixed the order of military liability for the 10,000,000 young Americans registered for service. District No. 2 – 2034 – Jose Salazar. Pueblo Chieftain - December 24, 1917 - Jose Salazar Died at Camp Kearney - The fourth Pueblo boy since the beginning of the war to give to his country's cause "the last full measure of devotion" was Jose Salazar; a member of Co. L. 158th Infantry, who died at Camp Kearney, Linda Vista, California, yesterday. While the message received in this city yesterday made no mention of the cause of death of the valiant young Spanish-American soldier, it is presumed that it was due to natural causes. A pathetic feature in connection with the death of the young man is the fact that he leaves a devoted wife and a three month old son, the baby boy having come into the world since the departure of the father early last fall for the California camp. All of the letters received in this city by friends of young Salazar told of his longing for the day when he might be able once more to come home to his wife and to little "Jose." The grief of the soldier's young wife is pathetic in the extreme, and since the sad news was imparted to her yesterday her condition has been such that she has been under the care of the family physician, and some fears were expressed by her friends that the shock might prove fatal to her, but late yesterday afternoon Mrs. Salazar's condition improved. Salazar was 24 years old, and was one of the south side draftees last September. Besides the widow and child, Salazar leaves an aged mother, Mrs. Sofia Salazar, residing at Dulce, N. M. It is planned to bring the body to Pueblo for interment, the arrangements being in care of the United Undertaking Company by whom announcement of time and place of the funeral will be made later. The death of Salazar is the fourth to occur among the Pueblo boys in the service since the outbreak of the war. Of this number two were in the United States Navy; another died at Camp Funston, Fort Riley, Kan. Salazar's is the first death among the Pueblo contingent at Camp Kearney. Pueblo Chieftain – December 27, 1917 – Two Military Funerals To Be Held in City Friday – Military funerals will be tendered the two Pueblo drafted man who died at training camps Sunday. Spanish War Veterans will have charge of the military arrangements. The two men are José Salazar, who died at Camp Kearney Sunday, and Earl Pope, who died at Camp Funston, Sunday night.

He died from injuries received in a friendly boxing match at the submarine base at San Pedro, Calif., November 10. Henry Ford, formerly a steelworker, died at camp Funston of fever, November 18. He was a favorite among the boys at the plant. During his residence in this city he was employed on the construction of the bi-product coke ovens being erected at the steelworks. Jose Salazar, age 24, member of Co. L, 158th infantry, died at Camp Kearney, at Linda Vista, Calif., December 23, 1917. He was one of the south-side drafted men, leaving in September. He was the 1st Pueblo boy to die at Camp Kearney. Earl W. Pope, was the 5th Pueblo boys to die during the year. He died at camp Funston, December 23, and was a member of the Pueblo County drafted men from divine, leaving Pueblo for the camp September 19. His death was caused by pneumonia.

Pueblo Chieftain – January 5, 1918 – $10,000 Insurance Left by Draftee – Jose Salazar, who was drafted by the South Side board in Pueblo, and who died of pneumonia two weeks ago at Camp Kearney, Calif., left an insurance policy of $10,000 to his wife, Mrs. Marie Salazar, 1630 Spruce St. and their baby daughter three months old. The commanding officer at Camp Kearney wrote a letter to the South Side draft board asking that Mrs. Salazar be instructed to apply through Washington for the insurance that was due on the policy taken out by her husband. Mrs. Salazar did not know that her husband had taken out the policy until informed by the draft board. The policy was issued under the government war plan which enables a soldier to take out insurance at a very low premium rate. This is the first war insurance policy claim to be made by a relative of a soldier from Pueblo. Pueblo Chieftain – November 17, 1918 – Pueblo's Honor Roll – It is believed that the list below contains the names of all the Pueblo men who have died of disease or of wounds or of accident, or were killed in action since the United States entered the war, at least these are all of the men of whom the Chieftain has had a record. If there are others, it is desired by the Chieftain to have their names and any information concerning them would be appreciated. The list below also contains the names of boys wounded in action, missing, and prisoner in Germany. This is Pueblo's honor roll: Dead: Joseph Salazar. Pueblo Chieftain – January 1, 1919 – 52 Pueblo Boys Gave Their Lives – Some Killed in France – Others Died of Wounds Or Disease – Pueblo sent nearly 3,000 men to the service of their country in the war recently ended. Out of this number 52 have so far been reported is dead, either killed in action, died of wounds, killed by accident, or died of disease. Some 19 have been wounded either seriously or slightly. Then 5 are reported missing. One was reported a prisoner of the Germans in a German prison camp. The Chieftain has endeavored to keep a record of the casualties suffered by Pueblo boys. Two sources of information were possible. One was from reports received by parents or nearest relatives and friends. The other source was the daily casualty list issued by the government and published by the Chieftain. The figures given above are from the records maintained by the Chieftain up to December 28. It is hoped that the list is complete, but it would be foolish to insist that there are no others to be included. Efforts were made to obtain photographs of all the boys who had given their lives for their country either by being victims of enemy bullets or disease. It was possible to obtain a large portion of them, but in some instances the family had no photograph and in other instances the family had moved from Pueblo and the address could not be learned in time to obtain the photograph by mail. In other instances boys were given on the casualty list as being from Pueblo, but no trace of relatives could be obtained here. Some of the boys died at training camps and were victims of the Spanish influenza or pneumonia. Some died on board ships, others died at training camps in France of disease. One was drowned when the Tuscania was sunk. The boys, who died at training camps, while they did not get to France, and did not obtain an opportunity to face enemy bullets, nevertheless gave their lives for their country. They should and will be considered heroes. They should receive all due honors. Died for Their Country: Joseph Salazar.

Salazar, Stephanie Nicole
Stephanie Nicole Salazar - Pueblo Chieftain - July 21, 2005 - Police seek clues in slaying of woman - Police are investigating the apparent beating death of an exotic dancer whose body was found early Wednesday in a field littered with rubbish behind a North Side strip club. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said an autopsy is planned Friday to determine exactly how 20-year-old Stephanie Nicole Salazar died. Salazar's head and face were so badly beaten that fingerprinting and X-rays were used to verify her identity, the coroner said. "This poor young woman suffered a very, very bad beating," said Deputy Chief John Ercul of the Pueblo Police Department. Ercul said no gunshots or stab wounds to Salazar were evident. Police don't know whether Salazar was killed somewhere else, or near the club. Police responded to reports of a man dragging a body toward a field just beyond the parking lot of The Mystic Cabaret, 4301 N. Elizabeth St., at about 12:50 a.m., according to Ercul. When officers arrived, no one was immediately seen in the area. Police took a closer look with flashlights and discovered pools and drops of blood that led them to Salazar's body. She was already dead and laying in a makeshift dump, where crushed concrete, windblown wrappers and old tires had collected. Ercul said Salazar had worked in the past as a stripper at Mystic. Witnesses told police they saw her inside the club late Tuesday or early Wednesday as a patron with a group of friends. Police learned that Salazar has been living in Pueblo, but originally is from Walsenburg. Investigators have few clues about the man that was seen dumping Salazar's body. He was described by witnesses as a white male approximately 40 years old, who stands 6 feet 2 inches to 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs about 250 pounds. The suspect reportedly has salt-and-pepper hair and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and dark, baggy pants. Pueblo Chieftain - July 23, 2005 - County coroner determines young mother was strangled - An autopsy on Friday revealed that a 20-year-old woman whose body was found in a field behind a strip club early Wednesday died from strangulation and may have been raped. Pueblo Chieftain - July 26, 2005 - Stephanie Nicole Salazar, 20, of Walsenburg. Memorial service, Wednesday, July 27, 2005, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Walsenburg, Colo., with the Rev. John Farley as celebrant. Inurnment to follow at South Cemetery. The family also wishes to acknowledge Stephanie's special friend, Ben Trujillo. A trust fund has been set up in Victoria Trujillo's name at the 1st National Bank of Trinidad, Huerfano County Branch, 135 W. Sixth Street, Walsenburg, Colo. Pueblo Chieftain - July 31, 2005 - Falcon man turns in self in homicide - A 28-year-old man turned himself in to Pueblo police Friday night in connection with the death of a young woman whose body was found 11 days ago behind a North Side strip club. Jail records identify the man as Dwayne Kelly Rogers of Falcon. He was arrested Saturday on suspicion of first-degree murder and is in Pueblo County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bail. Rogers told the Pueblo Police Department's dispatch center at about 11:30 p.m. Friday that he wanted to turn himself over in the death of a female in Pueblo, said Sgt. Elias Manzanares of Pueblo police. He said Rogers referred to details surrounding the death of Stephanie Nicole Salazar, 20, of Walsenburg. Rogers drove himself to the police station, and police detectives obtained an arrest warrant. Police found Salazar's body partially clothed behind the parking lot of The Mystic Cabaret, 4301 N. Elizabeth St., at about 12:50 a.m. July 20. Salazar, who was visiting the club with friends to celebrate her move out of the state, stepped outside the club to smoke a cigarette and disappeared. Salazar previously worked as a dancer at the club, police said. Two truck drivers said they saw a large male drag what appeared to be a woman's body down a small hill behind the parking lot. The suspect was described as a white male about 40 years old, with salt-and-pepper hair, standing between 6 feet, 2 inches and 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighing about 250 pounds. Police Chief Jim Billings could not say whether Rogers fits the description given by witnesses, but said the investigation will continue so officers can "have as much evidence as possible." "There's still a lot of investigative work to be done," he said. Billings added he did not know if Salazar's death was a random homicide or one that involved a motive. "It's going to be sketchy for a while … because we do need to run down the information (Rogers) gave," Billings said.

Sanchez, David F. Jr.
David F. Sanchez Jr. - Pueblo Chieftain - July 16, 2012 - Violence - Police probe shooting - Details of man's ID, condition unknown - A man was shot late Sunday before the vehicle he was traveling in crashed into a light pole and a parked vehicle. His identity and condition were unknown early today. As of 12:15 a.m. today, police were unable to release information on the incident. Police on the scene also could not provide information. Sgt. Ken Espinoza said it was too early in the investigation to comment. According to scanner traffic, the unidentified man was taken to Parkview Medical Center. Emergency responders said over scanner traffic that the man stopped breathing, but police were unable to confirm a death early today. A call to the coroner was not returned. Police blocked off Northern Avenue between Eilers and Taylor avenues. Police tape blocked the crashed car on the corner of Eilers and Northern avenues. A witness, who asked to remain anonymous in fear of retaliation, said she heard shots fired and saw two cars making aggressive moves on the corner of Taylor and Northern avenues. “That's where all the gunshots came from. He was driving jagged and he crashed into a pole and hit a parked car,” the witness said. The witness said she called 911 immediately. “I was outside talking to my neighbor. I heard the shots and saw the crash and I dialed 911. I had to get help,” she said. “You could see bullet holes all around the car. They shot it up.” Police could not confirm that the incident was a drive-by shooting. The woman said she saw a man being taken away in an ambulance. A fallen light pole rested on top of the crashed car and there was damage to its front end. A car parked next to the light pole had a dent on its left side. Several people were at the scene as police investigated. Pueblo Chieftain - July 16, 2012 - Pueblo gunshot victim dies; incident tied to festival altercation - Police say a 40-year-old Pueblo man who was shot before crashing his car into a light pole late Sunday has died. Pueblo Police Sgt. Ken Espinoza identified the victim as David F. Sanchez Jr., who died after being taken to Parkview Medical Center. Police were called to the scene at 9:37 p.m. on a report of shots being fired at the corner of Taylor and Northern avenues. Two minutes later there was a report of a crash a block away on Eilers and Northern avenues. At the time, police said they did not know the two calls were related. Espinoza said this morning that there have been no arrests in connection with the case. He said police investigators are interviewing people who possibly are connected to the shooting. There were no other injuries. Espinoza said an altercation occurred between two parties that knew each other after they had attended the annual Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish festival. "Sometime before the shooting, the group of kids started giving each other a hard time and one car started following the other one and they began to chase each other around," Espinoza said. "During that timeframe, one of them recognized one of the drivers in the other car and called the victim, who was a relative," Espinoza said. Espinoza said Sanchez ended up in the car with one of the groups of kids and told them to go home. Espinoza said the car later met up with the other vehicle at the corner of Northern and Taylor avenues. He said Sanchez, upset about what was happening to the teenagers, exchanged words with people in the other car and allegedly was shot in the chest. "He then drove up the block and crashed into a light pole. I think he drove off either to get away or to drive himself to the hospital, we are not sure at this time," Espinoza said. Sanchez later was transported to the hospital in an ambulance. Espinoza said since the two calls came in at the same time, police and emergency responders did not know that they were related. "The emergency responders were there for the crash and soon realized that he had a gunshot wound," Espinoza said. "So they hauled him off to the hospital." Espinoza said that during the investigation it was determined the two parties knew each other. "This little altercation stemmed up some old, bad feelings," Espinoza said. Espinoza said he has more details but couldn't comment because the incident remains under investigation. Police have not been able to determine if Sanchez was shot in his car or if he got out of the vehicle. "There are bullet holes in the car, but we can't determine if he was out of the car confronting somebody, or if the door was open and he got shot. There is nothing indicative of him being shot through the car," Espinoza said. Police blocked off Northern Avenue between Eilers and Taylor avenues. They still were on the scene at 8 a.m. today. Pueblo Chieftain - July 16, 2012 - Pueblo men arrested in fatal shooting - Two Pueblo men were arrested this afternoon in connection with a shooting that killed David F. Sanchez Jr. late Sunday. Sanchez, 40, was shot in the chest at the corner of Northern and Taylor avenues before crashing the car he was driving into a light pole two blocks away near Eilers Avenue. Randy Quaduor, 21, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder. Alejandro Anchondo, 20, was arrested on suspicion of menacing with a deadly weapon. Police said Anchondo allegedly menaced another person prior to the deadly shooting. That person was not injured. Sanchez died after being taken to Parkview Medical Center. Each were jailed late Monday at Pueblo County jail without chance for bail. Police were called to the scene at 9:37 p.m. Sunday on a report of shots being fired at the South Side intersection. Two minutes later there was a report of a crash a block away on Eilers and Northern avenues. At the time, police said they did not know the calls were related. There were no other injuries. Officer Ken Espinoza said an altercation had taken place between the two parties that knew each other after they had attended the annual Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish festival. An arrest affidavit indicated that tension between members of a car club and ex-members of the club, including Anchondo, played a part in the altercation. Sanchez belonged to the car club. “Sometime before the shooting, the group of kids started giving each other a hard time. One car started following the other one and they began to chase each other around,” Espinoza said. The affidavit states that Anchondo and others chased a car with members of the car club in it, almost running them off the road, threatening them and stopping to fight at one point. The affidavit said that Raymond Bustamante, 33, of Pueblo told police that his son, who was riding in the car being chased, called him to tell him what was going on. He told police that he and his brother then went to meet his son at a Loaf 'N Jug on First Street and Santa Fe Avenue at about 9 p.m. Bustamante said his longtime friend Sanchez also showed up at the store in a 1993 Buick that was later crashed. The two then headed toward Northern Avenue, where they saw Anchondo walking near the Double Deuce bar. The affidavit said that after an exchange of words Anchondo pulled a gun on them. During that time frame, the affidavit said Quaduor also was called to come to the bar to help his friends. The affidavit said a person who was questioned by police said that Sanchez pulled up to Taylor Avenue in his car, squealing the tires, and words were exchanged. The affidavit states that Quaduor said he was standing near the bed of his 2001 Chevy Silverado on Taylor Avenue near the bar when he saw two to three muzzle flashes from a black handgun that Sanchez had pulled out and pointed at his friends. Police said a gun found in the car Sanchez crashed was a pellet gun. But in the affidavit, Quaduor said the gun Sanchez had was a small caliber and made a soft sound as it fired. Quaduor told police that Sanchez fired at his friends from the driver's seat of his car. Quaduor admitted that he pulled out a .357 Magnum and pointed it at the driver's side of Sanchez's vehicle, firing one shot at the car door. The affidavit states that Quaduor told police that as the car took off down Northern Avenue, he continued to fire as many as five more shots. Quaduor said he fired his weapon in defense of his friends because he was afraid of being harmed and felt danger for them. He told police that he felt it was “a self-defense issue.” “(After the crash) he (Sanchez) then drove up the block and crashed into a light pole. I think he drove off either to get away or to drive himself to the hospital, we are not sure at this time,” Espinoza said. Sanchez was transported from the crash scene to the hospital in an ambulance. The affidavit said he was unconscious when police arrived and suffered a gunshot wound to the left side of his chest near his armpit. Residents living on Berwind Avenue between Taylor and Eilers said they could hear gunshots “We were just talking and then we heard like a boom, boom, boom,” Natasha Basquez said. “It was one right after another.” Kayla Hammons, who lives with Basquez, said she heard about six shots. Traffic was diverted for most of the day Monday from Northern Avenue through Berwind Avenue where the two women live. In March 2010, Quaduor pleaded guilty to manslaughter and aiding a suicide, and received a one year deferred sentence. He completed his sentence and the case was dismissed. Quaduor, who was 18 years old at the time, allegedly provided a loaded gun for his elderly father, Edward Quaduor, 75, to use to commit suicide. Deputies found the elder Quaduor's body on Dec. 2, 2009, in a camping trailer at the home of a friend at 461 Park Lane. Edward Quaduor was found with a handgun on his chest and an apparent gunshot wound to the head. Pueblo Chieftain - July 17, 2012 - David Frank Sanchez Jr., 40, of Pueblo. Arrangements pending.

The affidavit said a person who was questioned by police said that Sanchez pulled up to Taylor Avenue in his car, squealing the tires, and words were exchanged. The jury heard from two other witnesses Wednesday afternoon. One stopped her testimony almost as soon as it began, invoking the Fifth Amendment's protection against self-incrimination, while the other had no memory of the events and admitted she wasn't a reliable witness. Detectives believe several rifles were stolen from Piserchio's home following his murder. Nancy Cruts had told Pueblo County sheriff's detectives that she helped Wilkerson transport a cache of rifles to a Denver house. But on the stand, Cruts claimed her memory was so tattered by chronic meth use that she remembered nothing about the trip or that it even happened. Under Reynolds' cross-examination, Cruts denied that her memory loss was purposeful to avoid possible weapons charges from other jurisdictions. She also said she couldn't remember telling detectives about a trip to DePierre's home to get meth or that no one was allowed to know who DePierre was. But Cruts did admit that her drug use not only affected her memory but her ability to perceive events as well. "Would you say that, during that time frame, in your opinion, you're not credible?" Reynolds asked. "Ye ma'am," Cruts said. Deputy District Attorney Robert Toole tried to get testimony from Cruts' mother, Lynn Cruts. The Cruts live together and Lynn Cruts was preparing to tell the jury about finding a Russian SKS assault rifle and a shotgun in their home in December 2009. But as soon as she mentioned taking the weapons into the woods in Red Rock State Park, defense attorney Charles Esquibel stopped the questioning and argued that Lynn Cruts was getting into an area where she could incriminate herself. The court recessed while prosecutors tried to reach El Paso County District Attorney's Office officials to see if they could guarantee Lynn Cruts immunity for her testimony, but were unable to do so. She may be called today if a deal can be struck. The trial continues today. Pueblo Chieftain - July 18, 2012 - Homicide suspect held without bail - A Pueblo man suspected in the Sunday killing of David Sanchez Jr. waived a video advisement of his potential charges Tuesday. Randy Quaduor's next scheduled court date is Monday. Quaduor, 21, was arrested Monday on suspicion of second-degree murder. Police initially were called to a report of shots fired on the South Side, then to a single-vehicle wreck nearby at Eilers and Northern avenues. Officers found Sanchez, 40, in his Chevy Silverado pickup truck with a gunshot wound to his chest. He died at Parkview Medical Center. Police said the shooting stemmed from an altercation between two parties earlier in the day. Quaduor said he fired at Sanchez after he brandished a gun at Quaduor and his friends. Quaduor remains in county jail without chance for bail pending a hearing, according to the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office. Alejandro Anchondo, 20, did appear for his advisement and his bail was set at $50,000. Anchondo was arrested on suspicion of menacing. Police said he pulled a gun on Sanchez and Raymond Bustamante just prior to the shooting. Anchondo's next court date also is set for Monday.

Sanchez, Panta Leon
Panta Leon Sanchez - Huerfano World - July 12, 2012 - by Nancy Christofferson - Huerfano pioneer P. L. Sanchez - The July 8, 1927 issue of the Walsenburg World carried the news of the death of one the city and county's most enthusiastic leaders. Although there were many pioneer families with the surname of Sanchez, this one member, born in Huerfano County in 1879, stands out as a steady contributor to the well being of the local people. Panta Leon, known as P.L. and occasionally, Pantaleon, was born to Antonio and Maria Reyes Sanchez. Antonio Jose was a stockraiser and later Walsenburg merchant who was born in New Mexico. The marriage records show Maria Reyes was named Lucero when she wed Antonio Dec. 23, 1876 at age 16, though her obituary said her maiden name was Castro. It also stated her family came from Spain, as did her new husband's, and that her father moved to Huerfano County in the 1860s. Reyes could well have been, even at the tender age of 16, a widow, but we'll let the family genealogists figure that out. P. L.'s birthplace was said to be the old A. Levy home that stood in what is now Heritage Park in Walsenburg. He was the eldest of Antonio and Reyes' 10 surviving children. P.L. married Sofia Maldonado, daughter of Canuto and Josefa Maldonado, July 21, 1897. Canuto is generally referred to as Baldonado, and, like Antonio Sanchez, was a successful merchant and loyal Catholic who generously donated toward the St. Mary Church building fund. In fact, Canuto's home was at Seventh and Main streets where an earlier Catholic church had been located. The wedding of P.L. and Sofia must have been a merry affair. Both were the offspring of fairly prosperous businessmen and following the ceremony, conducted by Father Ussell, there was a grand ball in Mazzone Hall. In 1900 P.L. won his first public office when he was elected county assessor. However, since he was, by Colorado law, too young to serve in public office, he was unable to take over and fulfill his duties so his father served in his stead until his majority. Meanwhile he served as his father's deputy and learned the finer details of assessing. At the time of his election, P.L. was one of Huerfano County's few college men, having attended Sacred Heart in Denver. P.L. was re-elected in the next five elections and served until 1912. In 1902 P.L. proved up on a homestead in the very eastern tip of the county near the Rattlesnake Buttes, and no doubt took up sheep raising like his father. At the same time he was having built an eight-room, brick home with the dimensions of 26 by 40 feet on Fifth Street, east of the old schoolhouse later known as Washington. The family moved in during October 1902. His and Sofia's only son, P.L. Jr., died there in November 1902 at the age of five months. They would go on to have more children, including another son named P.L. In May 1903 P.L. was elected as a director of the Walsenburg District #4 school board, and soon was serving as its president. Beginning in 1906 he was the interpreter for the school board when it had to deal with Spanish-speaking parents. He was president from at least 1909 to 1912. About the same time he was elected to the Walsenburg town council as a trustee. This was a decade or two before Walsenburg became a city. With his family and reputation growing, Panta Leon undertook another building project, this time a 10-room brick house on East Sixth. Following his public service, P.L. became a merchant, then in 1917 he opened a real estate and insurance office in the Roof and Dick building. He later moved his office down Main Street to the Victoria Hotel. P.L. died in July 1927 at the age of 48. Sofia lived on until 1941. They left nine children, who were listed as Evan, Tony, P.L. Jr., Joseph, Mrs. Roger Martinez, Mrs. Gilbert Trujillo, Mrs. Ted Gonzales, Mrs. K.P. Tuttle and Mrs. Jake Vallejos.

Sandoval, Cecilia DePaul (Sister)
Cecelia De Paul Sandoval - Trinidad Times Independent - February 26, 2013 - Sister of Charity of Cincinnati, De Paul Sandoval died Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013, at the age of 99 at Mother Margaret Hall, the nursing facility of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati. She was born Cecilia Sandoval to parents Carlos and Louisa (Maldonado) Sandoval in El Frisco, Colo., May 27, 1913. Sister De Paul was a Sister of Charity for 79 years. Sister De Paul was born on a cattle ranch in the shadow of Fisher's Peak near Trinidad. It was her love for the work of St. Vincent de Paul among God's poor that led her to the Sisters of Charity. Sister De Paul was baptized at home by a Jesuit missionary who became a family friend; he was known as “Father Good.” He confirmed her at age 3 and allowed her to receive her First Communion at age 8 along with two of her sisters. Father Good used the teacher's chair for a confessional, hearing their confessions by the dim light of an oil lamp. Sister attended a rural, one-room school before going to St. Patrick's boarding academy in Raton. Sister attended Trinidad Junior College for one year, but missed the ranch and returned there to help her father round up cattle; it was during the Depression and they were not able to hire workers for the ranch. Seeing the many neighborhood children attend rural school without a religion teacher, Sister De Paul rounded up all in the area and started a class, preparing them for First Holy Communion. It was then that she felt God's call to help “round up souls.” She knocked on the door of Holy Trinity Convent in Trinidad, Sister of Charity Mother Mary Regina Russell answered and the rest is history. Sister De Paul received her Bachelor of Science degree in 1946 from Catholic Teacher's College, Albuquerque. Sister taught for 50 years, beginning at St. Leo, Detroit, Mich., in 1935. She ministered in education in Ohio, New Mexico, Colorado and Michigan, including her native Trinidad at Holy Trinity School. Sister referred to her most fulfilling days in education as being at St. Francis and San Felipe Schools, Albuquerque, where the children were among the very poorest. Retirement from the classroom in 1985 did not slow down Sister De Paul; it allowed her to pursue other ministries she had long desired to do in the Trinidad area. She and Sister Francis Beatrice Hennigan had visited prisoners “on the quiet,” as she said, while teaching in Albuquerque; in Trinidad the jail was only five blocks. She began a ministry to the inmates at the Las Animas County Jail which she continued for 11 years. Each week she would visit as many as 20 prisoners, taking reading material, rosaries and candy bars. On Saturday she carried Communion to them. Those in lock-up received a personal visit in their cells while others gathered in a common room where they sat and listened to gospel stories, music or just talked. Sister brought the prisoners encouragement in her words of faith and hope. She was instrumental in the establishment of the Open Door Soup Kitchen in Trinidad, She also taught catechism in the mission parishes including Branson and Hoehne. She visited the homebound, and taught mentally handicapped adults at the Community College. Their goal was to earn their GED. She walked the streets of Trinidad, ministering to the troubled youth as well, always seeking to instill in them the desire to improve themselves and their surroundings. A verse she recited in high school remained her desire for her final assignment. “When I die and go to heaven I don't want harps, robes, haloes or other fancy things Just let me ride the starry ranges On a pinto horse with wings.” Sister Joan Groff said “Sister De Paul was at every activity in Mother Margaret Hall and seemed to enjoy herself right up to the last week before she died. She was an inspiration just to watch. She loved art classes. I will miss her loving presence.” Sister Marty Dermody remembered Sister's love of nature. “When De Paul's niece Anita would visit she would bring Sister to the bird banding station. She told me her favorite bird was the Western Meadowlark. I was able to get her a little stuffed bird, her favorite, and she would play that bird's song many times in her room. Rest in peace my friend.” Sister De Paul Sandoval is survived by many faithful nieces and nephews, Viola Navrot, Anita Jo (Dale) Hyatt, Carlos Sandoval, special niece Susie Sandoval, great nieces and great nephews, Carla Sandoval, Christine (Jeff Lee) Breaker, Cecilia (John) Altizer, Cynthia (Loren Essley) Sandoval, Carol Sandoval, Anita Navrot, Tessa (Chris) Ryan, Charlie Sandoval, Miguel Navrot, Pablo Navrot, great-great-nieces Celia Tamez, Savannah Star Lee, great-great-nephews, Nii Xavier Baddoo and Nii Oman Baddoo. She was preceded in death by sisters Teva, Ircilia, Cruzita, Sister Mary Carlotta, OFS, and Juanita Reed, and brothers Paul, Charlie, Pete and Benjamin. Funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, at 10 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Memorials may be made in Sister De Paul Sandoval's name to the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati Retirement Fund, 5900 Delhi Rd., Mount St. Joseph, OH 45051 or the Fisher's Peak Soup Kitchen in care of Holy Trinity Church, 235 N, Convent Trinidad, CO 81082.

Santoyo, Edward (Mary) Santoyo, Joe (Margaret) Santoyo; and numerous great-grand and grandchildren. A lifelong Puebloan, she attended Minnequa Elementary School, Keating Junior High School and Central High School. Although she did not graduate from high school, she was a determined person, who went on to lead a successful and fruitful life. Referring to herself as a “child bride,” she married quite young to Martin R. Santoyo. She bore four sons in this union, and had shared the burden of raising them during the hectic years of World War II, while her husband served in the Navy. In the late 1940s and early '50s, she became a nurses aide at then-St. Mary's Hospital, and through study and hard work, she progressed up the ladder to become a licensed practical nurse. In the 1950s, she sought and gained employment at then-Colorado State Hospital, where she worked in the geriatrics department until 1969. She retired from the State Hospital to open Jo's Trailway Coffee Shop, which she ran until 1974. After selling the business, she went on to open the Granada Restaurant in Downtown Pueblo, which she operated very successfully until 1983. During this period, Josephine also operated a small business, MarJo Lamination Studio, (1974-1987) out of her home and later added video sales and moved the business to the Mesa Junction area. During her business career, she was active with the Pueblo Chamber of Commerce and the Latino Chamber of Commerce and she was a very active member of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the American Business Women Association, where she served in various capacities. She continued ABWA participation following the closing of her lamination business and in 1990, she was awarded ABWA Woman of the Year, an achievement she was proud of. When WATS Marketing opened its doors, she worked there briefly as a telephone associate, where her bilingual talents greatly were appreciated. Not one to sit idle, she took employment at the Four Seasons Nursing Home as dessert planner and baker. Following this stint, she left all business connections and retired to her home. A rest well earned. In the early 1990s, Josephine lost her left leg, which left her confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of her days. The immediate family expresses their thanks for the calls and cards of prayers and support we have received. Special thanks to the caring staff of the Villa Pueblo Skilled Nursing Facility for their support in the final days of her life. Honoring her wishes, no memorial service and cremation has taken place.

Sawyer, Chester
Chester Sawyer - Colorado Springs Gazette - December 27, 1998 - Crash Kills Pueblo Man, 82 - Stolen Car Hit 3 Vehicles, Police Say - An 82-year-old Pueblo man was killed Saturday when the car he was riding in broadsided another car that spun into its path on Fountain Boulevard just west of Academy Boulevard. Chester Sawyer was pronounced dead at Memorial Hospital from massive head and chest injuries. He was the backseat passenger in a 1993 Pontiac Bonneville. The crash was one of three that involved a car stolen minutes before at a car wash on East Pikes Peak Avenue about one block west of Academy, Colorado Springs police traffic Sgt. David Whitlock said. Whitlock said Deborah Blea, 22, the owner of a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse, was at a self-serve car wash when an acquaintance approached her and asked if he could sit in her car while she washed it. But once inside the car, Whitlock said, the man started it and drove away. About two miles south of Pikes Peak on Academy, the man drove the Eclipse around a mini-van driven by Teresa Weott. The Eclipse hit the van, causing minor damage. Weott was not hurt, Whitlock said. "He was southbound in the northbound lane," said Weott, who at the time of the incident was waiting for the southbound Academy light at Fountain. "Then he swerved and cut across traffic." An officer saw the Eclipse's erratic path and tried to pull the driver over, Whitlock said. "The officer made a U-turn, but the driver took off," Whitlock said. The officer did not pursue the driver, fearing for the safety of other motorists, Whitlock said. The Eclipse then turned west onto Fountain and pulled about one-quarter mile ahead of the officer. The officer saw the Eclipse's driver lose control and then spin across four lanes of traffic, hitting two cars before coming to a stop. "It sounded just like a bomb going off," said Craig Hicks, who had just pulled into a parking space at a nearby apartment complex. "It scared me to death." Witnesses said the Eclipse was traveling at a high rate of speed. Whitlock said tests to determine the speed were not complete late Saturday. The Eclipse clipped an Isuzu Amigo driven by Cheryl Garcia, 37, before slamming into a 1993 Pontiac Bonneville driven by Shirley Sawyer, 45. Garcia, who swerved her Izuzu to avoid the crash, was treated and released from Memorial Hospital. Chester Sawyer was in the back seat of the Pontiac, which was being driven by his daughter-in-law, Shirley Sawyer. Shirley Sawyer and a front-seat passenger, Lloyd Baker, 33, were taken to Memorial. Shirley Sawyer was listed in stable condition and was still being treated late Saturday. Baker was treated for a broken leg and released. Debris from that crash hit Ben Vigil's car as he was heading east on Fountain. Inside were his 3-month-old and 3-year-old children. Just before the crash, the driver of the Pontiac had passed his car, Vigil said. "If she would have switched lanes, we would have been hit," Vigil said. Joseph A. Torres, 24, was taken to Penrose Hospital where he was treated, then released to police. Whitlock said Torres was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence, auto theft and vehicular homicide.

Sawyer, John W.
John W. Sawyer - Pueblo Chieftain - June 13, 1905 - Frightfully Mangled by Freight Engine - John W. Sawyer Instantly Killed Near Philadelphia Smelter- No Inquest - John W. Sawyer, who is employed as a fireman on the steam shovel at the Philadelphia smelter, was instantly killed at 6:30 yesterday morning by a Colorado and Southern freight engine. The accident occurred near where the Colorado and Southern tracks cross the Santa Fe, near the smelter. It seams that Sawyer was on his way to work and did not hear the Train approaching. Just below the point where he was struck there is a curve in the track which made it impossible for the engineer on the freight to see the unfortunate man walking on the track. As soon as the engineer discovered Sawyer he blew the whistle, but it seems that Sawyer was slow in getting off the tracks and engine struck him. The body was carried for a distance of almost 200 yards and the sight which met the eyes of the trainmen when they had succeeded in stopping the freight was a sickening one. The body of the victim was horribly mangled and blood, flesh, and parts of clothing were scattered all along the track. A body was probably never worse mangled by a train. Death resulted almost instantly. There was a large gash in his head, his left eye was entirely knocked out, his body disemboweled, the left leg was entirely severed from the body, and the right leg was almost severed. Bert Blanton, who was on his way to work witnessed the accident and was of the opinion that Sawyer had plenty of time to get out of the way after the engine whistle was blown. It was evident that the victim though that he had plenty of time and that he did not start to leave the tracks until the engine was almost upon him and then it was too late. Sawyer was a single man about 35 years of age and was well known in the city. He resided with an aunt, Mrs. Burton, at 819 West Fifth Street. He took much interest in fraternal orders and was an active member in the Odd Fellows and the Woodmen of the World. Coroner McDonnell is of the opinion that the engineer of the freight was not to blame and does not feel that it is necessary to hold an inquest.

Sayles, Thomas W.
Thomas W. Sayles – Pueblo Chieftain – March 29, 1919 – Death of Thomas W. Sayles, Former Well-Known Pueblo Man – From 1871 to 1880, Thomas W. Sayles was one of the well-known businessmen of Pueblo. He was a veteran of the Civil War, but a young man of push and energy and a man who was thoroughly popular with everyone in the town. He formed a partnership with John D. Miller, who died here a few years ago, loved and respected by all who knew him – and the two embarked in the grocery business on Santa Fe Ave., the firm name being Sayles & Miller, and for a number of years they conducted the largest and best grocery store in Pueblo. They then dissolved partnership and Mr. Sayles went to Calif. and settled at Westgate, where he resided until 23 March, when his death occurred, as the following telegram of the 24th instant, published in a Los Angeles paper, will explain: "Westgate, March 24 – Apparently having a premonition of his approaching death, Capt. T. W. Sayles, 78, a Civil War veteran, commonly directed a woman in an adjoining room to send for the doctor. 'Not that it will be of any use, said the man,' 'for I will be dead in half an hour.' "Mrs. A. Lewis the neighbor, sent for a physician. When he arrived, in less than a half an hour, Capt. Sayles was dead. It is believed death resulted from heart trouble. The body is at the Finch Undertaking Parlors at Sawtelle. "And Sayles lived at 1150 Darlington St., Westgate. He suffered from the infirmities of old age, but was as well as usual when he went to bed last night." Mr. Sayles was a single man, and as far as known had no relatives in Calif. or Colo., and for a number of years had lived the life of a recluse. There are many old-timers still living in Pueblo, however, who will regret to hear of the death of "Tommy" Sayles, as his former friends were delighted to call him.

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.

Schafer, Rollie R. Sr.
Rollie Schafer - Trinidad Times Independent - January 9, 2007 - Pharmacist - Rollie Schafer, 93, of Denton, Texas, died January 2, 2007, at the Lake Forest Good Samaritan Village in Denton. Mr. Schafer was born February 8, 1918, in Higbee, Mo., the youngest of nine children to Frank Henry Schafer Sr. and Henrietta Cruse Schafer. Rollie grew up in the coal camps of Southern Colorado, coming of age in Cokedale, a coal mining community west of Trinidad. When he graduated from Trinidad High School in 1930, his dad told him that he would be the first of his family to go to college. But Rollie protested, saying that he wanted to be a coal miner like his dad and his older brothers. They struck a bargain. Rollie would go to college during the academic year, then return in the summer to mine coal. In the summer of 1931, Rollie suffered a broken leg when the mine roof caved in on him. Returning to the University of Colorado at Boulder on crutches that fall, he never mined again. Mr. Schafer earned one of the last of the University of Colorado's three-year pharmacy degrees in 1933. He stayed on to earn one of the first four-year degrees in 1934. Because pharmacy jobs were hard to get, he stayed on as a graduate student in chemistry, which paid better than any pharmacy job. Rollie married a Boulder girl, Marjorie June Mason on June 6, 1936 in nearby Golden, Colo. After working as a pharmacist in Walsenburg and Denver, he and Lloyd Lohmeyer, a friend from the pharmacy school borrowed money to purchase a drug store in 1946 in rural Akron, Colo. on the wheat growing high plains of Eastern Colorado. The world demand for wheat after World War II buoyed the business and Rollie paid off the loan and bought out his partner in 1951. Mr. Schafer sold the drugstore in 1973 and retired to Longmont where he worked part time at several pharmacies. He later remembered, “We had customers in Akron, but we only thought of them as customers. After we retired, we realized that many of our customers were really our best friends.” The Schafer's moved to Denton to be near their only son and their grandchildren in 1996. After Mrs. Schafer moved to the Nursing Center at the Lake Forest Good Samaritan Village in 2002, Mr. Schafer moved to his grandson's house near Lake Forest so that he could visit her daily. He moved to Lake Forest in August 2006. A memorial service was held in the Chapel of the Lake Forest Good Samaritan Village in Denton January 7. Mr. Schafer's ashes will be interred at Green Mountain Cemetery in Boulder next summer. Mr. Schafer is survived by his wife Marjorie; his only child, Rollie Schafer Jr., and his wife Sue; his two grandsons, Tony and his wife Shirley and their two children, Christopher and Lindsy, and Ben and his wife Kim, all of Denton. Arrangements were under the direction of Denton Funeral Home and Cremation Services.

Reverend Thomas Scheets - Colorado Springs Gazette - August 8, 1996 - 2 Priests Slain in Pueblo - Bodies Found Inside Rectory - Pueblo - Two priests were found slain Wednesday night in a church rectory on the city's east side. When one of the priests did not show up at an evening engagement, a friend went to the rectory of St. Leander's at about 6:15 p.m. and found the victims in separate rooms, according to Charlene Graham, deputy chief of the Pueblo Police Department. The priests were identified by Coroner Jim Kramer as the Rev. Tom Sheets and the Rev. Louis Stovick. Both suffered "multiple trauma" to the torso, but police would not be specific. The men were last seen about 3 p.m. by clerical workers. Graham said nothing appeared to be stolen. A crowd of about 100 mourners milled outside the church early into this morning, consoling one another and reciting the rosary. A 3-foot framed painting of Jesus was propped against a tree, surrounded by candles. Terri Brelsford, a 15-year member of the church, said "Father Tom," as he was known, helped her nephews get a seminary scholarhship. "I don't know what our church is going to do without them (the two priests)." Colorado Springs Gazette - August 9, 1996 - Parishioner Arrested in Slaying of Priests - Pueblo Police Still Seeking Motive in Deadly Attack - Pueblo - As scores of St. Leander Church members prayed over candelight Thursday for the souls of two priests who were slain Wednesday, police arrested a 20-year-old parishioner and jailed him on suspicion of committing the crimes. Police took Douglas James Comiskey into custody Thursday evening and booked him into Pueblo County Jail on suspicion of two counts of first-degree murder. Comiskey is a member of St. Leander, a parish of about 1,500 working-class, mostly Hispanic families on Pueblo's east side, said Pueblo Police Chief Ruben Archuleta. Archuleta said investigators still do not know what motivated the attack in which the Rev. Louis Stovik, 77, and Rev. Thomas Scheets, 65, were killed. Scheets had been pastor of St. Leander Catholic Church since 1990, and Stovik was a retired priest who had lived at the church rectory for three years. Deputy Coroner Kim Wittrup said both men had been stabbed in the torso, but Archuleta would not say if a weapon had been recovered. The bloodied bodies of the two men were found in separate rooms of the rectory Wednesday at about 6:15 p.m. by the Rev. William Powers, a fellow priest who stopped by to check in on his friends. Archuleta said physical evidence at the crime scene led them to investigate Comiskey. He declined to describe the evidence. Late Thursday, police literally swarmed over a house near the church, climbing onto the roof, taking pictures and measurements and repeatedly entering and leaving. Comiskey lived with his mother in the house, owned by his grandmother. Detectives also spent late Wednesday and all day Thursday combing every inch of the two-story, blondbrick rectory for blood, fingerprints, hair and other clues. Colorado Bureau of Investigation officers also worked the scene. Officers did find a trail of blood drops leading from the front door of the rectory - which is behind the church and faces north - leading to Risley Middle School to the west. All day Thursday, police had said next to nothing about the investigation. Archuleta said detectives were pursuing a "good lead," but did not elaborate. Then, at 7 p.m., Archuleta announced police would make an arrest within the next couple of hours. "We felt the anxiety in the neighborhood," the chief said. "We wanted them to know we're on top of this. We want to ease the fears in the community. This is still a very safe community." Applause erupted among the 100 or so people gathered outside the yellow police tape surrounding the church and rectory when news of the impending arrest reached them. "They have to answer to the man upstairs. When they do that, they're in trouble," said Robert Lopez, 24, raised from childhood in the St. Leander parish community. Before the arrest, police gathered some of the 54 priests of the Pueblo Diocese at a secret location to discuss their safety. "We have no idea of the motive," Archuleta said at the time, "so we assume other priests could be a target." As news of the slayings spread late Wednesday and early Thursday, hundreds of people assembled an impromptu shrine outside the church. People lined up in the nearby Safeway to buy candles, which were placed along the sidewalk next to St. Leander, along with pictures of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, flowers and a red rose surrounded by blue tissue paper and the single word: "Why?" On the front door of the church, a sign read: "No daily Mass until further notice." Arthur Tafoya, bishop of the Pueblo Diocese, said there would be a Sunday Mass. The diocese had no information about a memorial service or funeral arrangements. Ten Catholic Social Service counselors set up a crisis counseling center in the church gym, where they met with at least 200 people. At noon, about 25 mourners said the Rosary in the sweltering sun in the middle of Seventh Street outside the church. Meanwhile, downtown at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Tafoya led the noon Mass for about 100 people. Two candles glowed on the altar, and many wept as the bishop spoke about Scheets and Stovik. "These men gave their lives to build the Church of God," Tafoya said. Tafoya urged prayers for the slain priests, their families and friends, the parishioners of St. Leander - and the suspected killer. "We must pray for the person or persons who committed this traumatic crime," he said. "May they also know God's love and God's mercy." As investigators continued tight-lipped with their grim work, parishioners, friends and relatives of the slain priests poured out their anguish. "I'm like a fish out of water," the Rev. Powers said Thursday from the living room of his home just a block away from St. Leander. "I've lost my best friend." Both priests had deep ties to the community. Each worked closely on the Catholic High Initiative - a push to get a Catholic high school in Pueblo. Those who knew Scheets said he reached out to younger people, even to the point of wearing a leather jacket, boots and a wallet chain. "Father Tom would give his arm for anyone," said Carlos Arguello, 17, at student at Centennial High in Pueblo. "It's sad to see two good priests go." Stovik was described as a man who held fast to deep Catholic traditions. "He was stern but gentle," said Jeff Moore, whose children were baptized by Stovik. "He was just like a parent. He would tell you what you did wrong, why and then how to fix it." Stovik had just retired from the administrative end of church business. Even so, those who knew him said Stovik would get up at 5:30 a.m. every day to deliver Communion to the sick. And every evening after dinner, he would walk the church parking lot - kicking rocks off it so people wouldn't trip over them. "He would always give me hell for not going to church," Moore said. "He was ornery, but he was the nicest man in the world you'd ever wanted to meet." Many others, including brothers of Scheets, said the priests often would open their door to beggars asking for money or food. "He was a kind and gentle person," said Sam Scheets, brother of Thomas and an employee of the Illinois Department of Public Aid. "I know he was quite often approached by poor people and the homeless and he helped them. It's very shocking." The Rev. Francis Kelley Scheets of All Saints Parish in New York City flew to Pueblo on Thursday after hearing about his brother. "He never turned anyone away," Francis said of his brother. And that, Bishop Tafoya said, might have led Stovik and Scheets to the fateful encounter. "In our violent society, clergy and religious are no longer exempt," Tafoya said. "These men dedicated their lives in the service of the Catholic Church. Sadly, they died while still carrying out their priestly ministry." Brothers In The Cloth - The two Catholic priests slain in Pueblo were raised by hard-working, lower middle class families who were devoutly Catholic, family members said Thursday during telephone interviews. And both had brothers who became Catholic priests. "I've lost a good friend," said Sam Scheets, a younger brother of the Rev. Thomas Scheets. "It's very shocking. I'm upset that he was taken like this." The Rev. Thomas Scheets - The Rev. Thomas Scheets was born March 10, 1931, in Aurora, Ill. He was one of four brothers, said Sam Scheets, 61. The Scheets boys were raised in Minneapolis; their father worked in a flour mill, and their mother was a homemaker. Thomas Scheets followed the footsteps of an older brother, Francis, who is also a priest, Sam Scheets said from his home in Jacksonville, Ill. The brothers attended seminary in Indiana while they were in high school, said Sam Scheets. Thomas Scheets was ordained on May 26, 1956, in Fort Wayne, Ind. He came to Colorado in 1975 as an associate pastor at La Junta Catholic Parish. The following includes highlights of his career, according to the Diocese of Pueblo: Appointed pastor, St. Leander Parish in Pueblo, July 1990; Appointed pastor, La Junta Catholic Parish in La Junta, July 1981; Appointed co-pastor of St. Michael Parish in Delta and St. Philip Mission in Cedaredge, June 1980; Appointed associate pastor, St. Michael Parish in Delta, August 1978. He also served on several diocese boards, including the Clergy Benefit Society Board, Diocese of Pueblo Salary Structure and Policy Committee and Finance Advisory Council. He also was a liaison for the bishop for several parishes in southeastern Colorado near La Junta. The Rev. Louis Stovik - The Rev. Louis Stovik was born Sept. 5, 1918, in Curlew, a small town in Ferry County, Wash. He was one of 11 children - 10 boys and one girl - said his brother, Conrad Stovik, 88, during a telephone conversation from his home in Washington state. The children were raised in a rural area, where their parents were cattle ranchers, Conrad Stovik said. The family was devoutly Catholic and attended Mass regularly, said Conrad Stovik, a retired sawmill worker. Four of the brothers became priests, said Conrad Stovik. Louis Stovik was ordained on June 11, 1949, in Fargo, N.D. He came to Colorado after being appointed assistant pastor for St. Columba Parish in Durango in July 1949, according to the Diocese of Pueblo. The following includes highlights of his career, according to the Diocese of Pueblo: Named diocesan chaplain, for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, 1988; Appointed pastor, St. Therese Parish in Vineland, July 1983; Appointed associate pastor, Christ the King Parish in Pueblo, August 1972; Appointed chaplain, Sacred Heart Orphanage and director of athletics at Pueblo Catholic High School, 1953. The Rev. Stovik held numerous other positions at several parishes, schools and hospitals. Picture caption: Sadie Martinez, left, grandmother of slaying suspect Douglas Comiskey, was planning to dine with the Rev. Thomas Scheets on Wednesday, the same day the priest was found dead, along with the Rev. Louis Stovik, at Pueblo's St. Leander rectory. Martinez, who worked in the rectory for 20 years, is hugged Thursday by fellow parishioner Leroy Garcia hours before it was announced her grandson was a suspect. Colorado Springs Gazette - August 10, 1996 - Pueblo Slayings Suspect Had History of Instability - Preliminary Report Finds Two Priests Bled to Death From Multiple Wounds - Pueblo - The man accused of slaying two St. Leander priests led a troubled life checkered with criminal activity, drugs and mental problems. But those who knew 20-year-old Douglas James Comiskey couldn't fathom him committing the crimes police suspect he carried out. "I've known Doug since he was a baby," said neighbor Jean Gonzalez. "This is sad, very sad. I feel sad for Doug." Comiskey faces two first-degree murder charges in the Wednesday deaths of the Rev. Thomas Scheets, 65, and the Rev. Louis Stovik, 77, both who lived in the rectory of the eastside church. Comiskey remained in the Pueblo County Jail without bail on Friday. No motive has emerged, as Comiskey refused to talk to investigators, said Pueblo Police Chief Ruben Archuleta. Investigators and attorneys surrounding the case were tight-lipped Friday. Police investigators believe Comiskey went into the priests' two-story home behind the church sometime Wednesday afternoon. The Rev. William Powers, who lives nearby, discovered Scheets' bloody body lying face down in the living room. He said he found Stovik, who had suffered a head wound, in an office in the back of the rectory. Comiskey was arrested Thursday night - 28 hours after the bodies were discovered. An autopsy showed both men bled to death from multiple puncture wounds, said Sgt. Dave Santos, the deputy county coroner. He said a pathologist's report, still to be completed, may determine the weapon and the number of wounds. Comiskey waived a hearing advising him of his rights Friday, shortly after being assigned to public defender Doug Wilson. Wilson successfully helped defend Eugene Baylis, who faced numerous felony charges in the 1993 shooting death of two Colorado Springs bar patrons. Tenth Judicial District Attorney Gus Sandstrom asked for Comiskey's file in this case to be sealed, and District Judge Eugene Halaas agreed. Halaas went a step further and slapped a gag order on everyone involved in the case. Neighbors, former classmates and past co-workers describe Comiskey as an unemployed high-school dropout trying to rebound from bouts with drugs, crime and mental problems. Comiskey - known in the neighborhood as "Dougie" - had returned in January after a month long stay in a Denver hospital psychiatric ward. It was the culmination of what appeared to be a troubled few years. In August 1993, Comiskey was present when two friends were hit by gunfire from an Uzi assault rifle, according to published reports. Then in March 1995, he stole his mother's television set and jewelry from her home - after he had been evicted - and hawked them at a neighborhood pawn shop, earlier court documents state. He later admitted the crime, as well as telling police he started drinking alcohol when he was 16 years old and using marijuana when he was 17. The 6-foot, brown-eyed man, who loved to shoot hoops with neighborhood children, lived with his grandmother and his mother in a cream-colored bungalow across the street from St. Leander. Gonzalez, 49, has lived across from the church - and two doors down from Comiskey - for 30 years. Gonzalez said her 15-year-old son, Rafael, would often play basketball with Comiskey. She remembers Comiskey helping set up for the church carnival just last month. The manager of a Pueblo Hardees fast-food restaurant offered Comiskey a job once he was released from the hospital, but he refused because he told her he was on anti-depressant medication. "He was never violent with any of the kids," Gonzalez said. "He was the furthest person in my mind who would do anything to a priest." Comiskey also volunteered for the Boys Club, which met at the St. Leander Gym. Boys Club officials had "no comment" on his work there. "He was a nice kid," Gonzalez said. "He was pretty wild back then, but when he came back from Denver he was reversed. Like a totally different kid." Gonzalez said the change was most evident in his eyes. "His eyes were real funny," she said. "Glaring, looking eyes." Although his parents, Pat and Georgia Comiskey, divorced when he was a child, Comiskey grew up surrounded by the unyielding love of Sadie Martinez, his 84-year-old grandmother who spent two decades cooking and cleaning inside the rectory. Because of Martinez - whom neighbors described as "The Walking Saint" - the church was a part of his life from the beginning. The morning after the killings, Martinez joined mourners in front of the rectory, remembering fondly the two priests to whom she made daily visits. "I don't think she knew," said Marie Labo, 72, a longtime friend. "She was such a lovable woman." Both Martinez and Georgia Comiskey were staying at an undisclosed location on Friday and couldn't be reached for comment. Like many youths in the neighborhood, Comiskey attended East High School. Several former classmates said they most remember his action on the soccer field. In the 1992 yearbook, Comiskey is pictured on both the varsity and junior varsity soccer teams. Comiskey, who has a sister and brother, also was an avid basketball player. "He would walk in front of the house alone or with another boy, bouncing a ball," said Bob Lopez, a 63-year-old neighbor. "He would say `hi' but that was about it." Comiskey is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 19. Funeral services for the priests are tentatively scheduled for 11 a.m. on Monday at the Colorado State Fairgrounds. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 11, 1996 - A Call For Forgiveness - Hundreds Congregate in Pueblo to Grieve and Pray for Slain Priests - Pueblo - They came to pray for the ones who had once led them in prayer. The grieving parishioners filed into St. Leander - 350 strong - genuflected, and slowly filled the wooden pews of the 71-year-old church. The weight of grief pushed down as they gathered Saturday for the first time in many years without their leaders - the Revs. Thomas Scheets, 65, and Louis Stovik, 77. The priests were slain Wednesday just beyond the wall behind the church altar. A parishioner, 20-year-old Douglas James Comiskey, faces two first-degree murder charges in their deaths. “It still seems like a bad dream,” said John Arguello, 60. “It seems like I'm going to walk back in there, and they'll be standing there.” To those who attend St. Leander, the church in this close-knit, mostly Hispanic neighborhood is more than bricks and mortar. It is their rock, a gathering place for 1,500 families who attend services. They are a family. And Saturday night, the leaders of the Diocese of Pueblo challenged this family to perform what most would consider a Herculean task: Forgive the killer. “What do we pray in the 'Our Father' - Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,” Bishop Arthur Tafoya told the parishioners. “If you find it hard to forgive, look at the cross with Jesus Christ and his hands outstretched,” Tafoya said. “The whole world was against him, yelling 'crucify him.' And what did he say: 'Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.'” “He touched my life in several ways,” Dorothy Lopez, 44, said of “Father Tom.” “This leaves a big hole in my life.” Scheets had buried Lopez's husband, married her daughter and baptized her son and granddaughter. Many residents say the church is the focal point of this lower-income neighborhood. Students from nearby Risley Middle School attended classes in the church while the school was closed for chemical contamination last spring. Children can often be found playing basketball in the gym - part of a Catholic grade school that closed in the early 1970s. Boys Club members also gather at the gym, which until recently also was the site of weekly bingo games. And every year, residents congregate in the church lot for a fund-raising carnival. That doesn't include all the families who gather for Masses, weddings, funerals, baptisms and first communions. “It seems as though someone is always around,” said Jean Gonzalez, 49, who has lived across the street from the church for 30 years. “We are united regardless of what has happened,” said Arguello, a 46-year parishioner. “We are one big family.” The day after the priests' bodies were discovered, Bishop Tafoya asked people to pray for the person responsible. Tafoya said Saturday he plans to send District Attorney Gus Sandstrom a letter, urging him not to seek the death penalty in the case. “The death penalty is not the way to go,” he said. “That is using violence with violence.” “I know people are angry,” said the Rev. Edward Nunez. “But they need to forgive and move on.” Nunez, now vicar general for the diocese, accepted his first assignment as pastor of St. Leander in 1975. He stayed in that role for four years. “It is important because now is really a time for the community to practice what it preaches,” Nunez said. “It's what Christ would have done. …This is all part of loving your neighbor as yourself.” Crisis counselor Frank Dunn sat in the St. Leander gym all day Friday to talk to parishioners. Anger is a natural part of grieving, he said. “Without it, the healing can't completely occur,” Dunn said. But Dunn acknowledged that finding forgiveness in their hearts will be difficult for some people. “The community needs to come together and talk and share their grief,” he said. “They need to share their faith and stand together.” Bob Lopez, 63, also lives near the church. He knows forgiveness would be the Christlike thing to do, but he's not sure it's possible for him. “Father Tom was not only my spiritual leader, he was my friend.” Lopez's neighbor, Jeff Moore, enjoyed a close relationship with Stovik. The retired priest baptized both his children. “What (the killer) did was flat out wrong. He will pay for that come judgment day,” Moore said. “I'm angry, you bet. Something was taken from me…Priests are supposed to stand for all that's good in the human race. To have that thrown away doesn't make sense.” Forgiveness? “I may be able to forgive the person, but I cannot forgive the act,” Moore said. There could be many who feel as Moore does, but Dorothy Lopez feels sure she knew her priest's heart. “I do know Father Tom would have forgiven.” Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 13, 1996 - Saying Goodbye - Pueblo Gathers to Mourn Slain Priests - Pueblo - Heather and Samantha Corral, 12 and 8, came to the Colorado State Fairgrounds on Monday dressed in their Sunday best - frilly dresses and fancy bows - to say goodbye to the priest who had baptized them. The two pretty, dark-eyed girls were joined at the Events Center by 3,800 other people from every neighborhood of this close-knit town, a community that takes family and faith seriously. They came to the indoor arena to celebrate the lives of two Roman Catholic priests - the Revs. Thomas Scheets and Louis C. Stovik - who were stabbed to death in their rectory Wednesday. They came to find solace and strength in the ancient rituals of a Catholic Mass, a ceremony presided over this day by five bishops and an arch bishop, all dressed in cream-colored vestments. But vestments, rituals and liturgy meant little to Heather and Samantha. They just know “Father Tom” won't be there to greet them at the Spanish-speaking Mass at St. Leander Church on the city's east side. “They're really upset about it. They cried for days,” said the girls' mother, Sharon, who herself grew up two blocks from the church and remains a volunteer there. “They don't want to go to Mass because Father Tom is not going to be there to greet them. He used to tell them he was proud of them for getting up early for the 8 o'clock Mass.” But their father, Henry, said, “It's reality. They're going to have to deal with it.” That's something the city of Pueblo will have to do, too, said usher and Knights of Columbus member Gilbert Pacheco. “I think in the long run, the killings are going to unite the community. Something good is going to come out of it.” Salesman Jinks Chavez, who is not Catholic but who came to the Mass “out of respect,” said the packed service itself shows how special his city is, a city where extended family ties link neighborhoods and classes. “It's brought the community together,” he said. “I'm sure people of all faiths are here. We always got along pretty good, but this has brought us even closer together.” Across town and four days removed from the anguish, grief and anger that poured out of the community on news of the slayings, the eastside neighborhood surrounding the church was back to normal. “Last week was pure hell - not knowing who's who, or who's supposed to be here and who's not. This is how it's supposed to be,” said Irene Moore, who lives directly across from the front door of St. Leander. “People I've never seen before were standing in front of the church for hours, trying to keep candles lit in the wind,” said Irene's husband, Jeff. The Moores opted not to attend the services at the State Fairgrounds; they wanted a break from crowds. “I took a ride out to the cemetery,” said Irene Moore. “Father Scheets is just 11 plots away from my grandmother.” “I didn't want to see the bodies; I wanted to remember them alive,” added her husband. Sadie Martinez, the grandmother of the 20-year-old man suspected in the killings, Douglas Comiskey, attended the funeral with her family. “The neighborhood is really worried about her. We hope she has the strength to get through this,” said Jeff Moore. At the same time Mass was taking place at the State Fairgrounds, business carried on as usual downtown. But there were some indications the city is still grappling with a return to normality. Sophista Kats Inc., a women's apparel store on Main Street, posted the sign “Closed Today in Memory of the Rev. Thomas Scheets and the Rev. Louis Stovik. May They Rest in Peace.” In the B & A Bootery, on Main Street, employees Phil Vigil and John Rivera considered what kind of toll the tragedy would take on the community. “The wound is never going to completely heal,” said Vigil. “People will mourn, but life must go on. We can't let this hold the community back, you've got to forgive. The neighborhood's been somber and quiet, but it will come back probably stronger than ever.” Many people said they would try to heed the advice of Bishop Arthur Tafoya, who said during the service, “In our tragedy, we must learn to love and forgive.” But that doesn't mean they'll forget - especially Father Tom, who topped off his all-black wardrobe with a black motorcycle jacket. “I told him he looked like a biker - all he needed was a motorcycle,” said Henry Corral. “It's going to be hard to find someone to replace him,” said Sharon Corral. “Everyone was so used to his ways, his laughter, his jokes. He always made jokes.” Stovik was cut from a stricter, sterner cloth. Bishop Tafoya told mourners that where Father Tom would give him a quick hug and run off to other duties, “Father Stovik would look at me and proceed to give me some advice.” After the standing-room only Mass, about 200 friends, family members and priests drove to Roselawn Cemetery where Scheets was to be buried. (Stovik will be buried in North Dakota.) Among those saying goodbye was the Rev. Ron Roache. He said the priests who rode to the cemetery together in a bus were talking about how Father Tom would have reacted to the solemn Mass said for him and Stovik. “He would have said 'Enough! Enough! Enough!'” said Roache. “Father Tom was known for his short funerals.” Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 17, 1996 - Suspect in Priests' Slayings Arrested at Medical Clinic - Pueblo - The suspect in the slayings of two Catholic priests was arrested at a clinic where he had gone to have a cut finger treated, the Pueblo Chieftain reported Friday. The Chieftain said sources told the newspaper 20-year-old Douglas Comiskey was arrested at the Family Medical Center. By coincidence, that is where Pueblo Coroner James Kramer works as a physician's assistant. Kramer is in charge of the autopsies being performed on the Rev. Thomas Scheets, 65, who was pastor of St. Leander Catholic Church, and the Rev. Louis Stovik, 77, a retired priest who lived with Scheets in the parish rectory. Authorities said the men bled to death in the rectory from stab wounds Aug. 7. Comiskey was arrested Aug. 9 and is being held without bond on two counts of first-degree murder. A gag order has been imposed in the case, so information about his arrest and the evidence that led to it are under seal. The Chieftain said it has learned police were alerted to Comiskey through a Family Medical Center staffer who suspected Comiskey might be involved in the priests' deaths. Medical personnel became suspicious when Comiskey told them he had injured his hand by slamming it in a car door, then said he did not recall how he hurt his hand, the Chieftain said. A center staffer called police, according to the newspaper. The Chieftain said its sources reported that Comiskey was accompanied by his mother Thursday morning when he sought medical attention for the cut. When he was arrested, he had a bandaged hand. Pueblo Police Chief Ruben Archuleta confirmed that Comiskey “was brought in willingly from there when we started to follow up some leads.” Comiskey's first court appearance is Monday in Pueblo District Court, where the judge will review whether bond should be set and schedule further court dates. Colorado Springs Gazette - August 22, 1996 - Priest Slaying Suspect Sought Care, Paper Says - Pueblo - Less than two weeks before he was charged with the slayings of two Catholic priests, the 20-year-old suspect sought psychiatric treatment, according to a newspaper report. The Pueblo Chieftain said in its Wednesday edition that sources said Douglas James Comiskey and his mother went to the emergency room at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital in late July. He was examined by the psychiatrist on duty, who recommended that he be hospitalized, but Comiskey refused hospitalization, the Chieftain reported. Comiskey has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the slayings of the Revs. Thomas Scheets, 65, and Louis Stovik, 77. Comiskey lived across the street from the St. Leander Church rectory where they were found dead Aug. 7. Comiskey was arrested the next day at the Family Medical Center when he sought medical treatment for cuts on his hands, the Chieftain reported. Records in the case have been sealed and officials have been ordered not to talk about the case. The Chieftain said the nature of the problem that brought Comiskey to the hospital emergency room before the slayings was not known. Bill Bush, St. Mary-Corwin Hospital's outgoing administrator, would not discuss Comiskey's appearance in the emergency room.

Schlageter, Merle D.
Merle D. Schlageter - Pueblo Chieftain - May 13, 1917 – Many Puebloans Enlisted To Fight in Present War – Nearly one hundred and twenty men have answered the call to active service in the army, the navy and the marine corps, and have left Pueblo to enter training schools to prepare them for the active service to which they have been called. Pueblo's sailors who have just enlisted are: Pueblo recruits for the marines: Merle D. Schlageter. Pueblo Chieftain – June 19, 1918 – Pueblo Boy is Killed in Fighting Line in France – Yesterday's war casualty list contained the name of Merle D. Schlageter of Grimaldi, Pueblo County, Colo., as among the dead. The death of Merle Schlageter is the first to occur among Pueblo County boys in the war. The report says he was "Killed in Action" with the United States Marines. The deceased Pueblo County boy is the son of Mrs. Ida Schlageter, residing on a ranch at Grimaldi. Two weeks after the outbreak of the world war young Schlageter enlisted in the United States Marines. It is said that at the time he enlisted he chose to enlist with the Marines in order that he might be "first in the fight." He was sent to Mare Island, San Francisco, where he was in training several months and later was transferred to an Atlantic Coast training station from where he went to France. He had been in France but a short while and evidently was stationed with the Marines who so valiantly fought at the Château Thierry during the last German offensive. He was well-known in Pueblo County, where he resided with his parents on the ranch near Grimaldi. He has written many letters to his parents and to friends and always expressed a desire to get into the battle against Germany. Although no one has known just where he was located in France, it is believed that he was in the Château Thierry sector as there were many Marines there prior to the fierce fighting of last week. Schlageter has another brother also in the service of the country, having been called to Camp Funston in the draft. Pueblo Chieftain – July 11, 1918 – Mrs. Ida Schlageter of Grimaldi, the mother of Merle D. Schlageter, formerly of Grimaldi, who was the first Pueblo County boy killed in action in France, is quite ill. She was sick for some time before she received word of her son's death and the shock made her worse.

Schwartz, Isadore
Isadore Schwartz - Pueblo Indicator - November 21, 1936 - A Holdup and Killing - Isadore Schwartz, Proprietor of the Reliable Loan Co. Shot to Death - It was at noon last Monday when two shots were heard in the loan shop at 305 North Union avenue and a young Negro came out with a smoking revolver in his hand. Passing a dozen pedestrians he ran across the street and made his way to the railroad yards where he either hid or else caught a ride out of town. Soon a number of detectives and police gathered at the pawn shop and Chief Grady ordered a general search of Pueblo to be made. It is thought that Schwartz resisted the holdup as he is quoted as having said he never would be held up without making resistance. He was shot by the Negro in the abdomen and left leg. He uttered a few despairing yells, which with the shots, attracted the attention of many in the vicinity. The victim attempted to follow the thug but fell in the doorway and at once lapsed into unconsciousness and soon passed away. Word of the tragedy was flashed to all nearby points and Sheriff Lewis Worker's force joined with Chief of Police Grady in the man hunt. Pueblo Indicator - November 21, 1936 - Negro Killer Under Arrest - Willis Wynn, alias William Johnson, a 19-year-old Negro, confessed Thursday to Denver police that he shot and killed Isadore Schwartz, pawnbroker, last Monday. The Pueblo police previously had the killer under arrest but released him when witnesses failed to identify him. He hid out here two days and then bummed his way to Denver on a freight train.

Scorafa, Joseph
Joseph Scorafa - 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.

Sgt. Wallace Lathrop of the Colorado State Patrol said one victim died at the scene and another was flown by Flight for Life to Pueblo's Parkview Medical Center. The victims were in a Dodge Durango headed south when one of the tires blew out, causing the vehicle to roll, Lathrop said. "We had multiple (people) ejected," Lathrop said. The crash happened at 5:59 p.m. about six miles south of Walsenburg. The interstate was closed for about 30 minutes so the medical helicopter could land. Lathrop said the victims are all female, one being from Pueblo and one from Colorado Springs, but couldn't provide more specific information from the scene. Troopers are still on scene conducting their investigation. Pueblo Chieftain - November 11, 2012 - The four women involved in a deadly crash south of town were identified late Friday night.

Breanna Ortiz of Rifle, Viktoria Flores of Colorado Springs and Tawnya Schaus of Denver sustained serious injuries and were transported to separate hospitals, according to the Colorado State Patrol. All three women are 20 years old. It was originally believed that one of the victims was from Pueblo but the CSP confirmed otherwise. The women were in a Dodge Durango headed south when one of the tires blew out, causing the vehicle to roll. At this time, alcohol and drug use are not suspected as contributing factors. An initial investigation indicates that no seatbelts were being worn by the women at the time of the wreck, which remains under investigation.

Henry Scott - Daily Rocky Mountain News - May 17, 1877 - A Sad Story - The Georgetown Miner has the following tale of suffering: “About three weeks ago John Bishop, Eli Pitcher, Wm. Green, Phil. Cosgrove and Henry Scott started with a team and complete outfit, intending to go to Arizona through the southern portion of this state. Several of the party, it seems, had been exposed to the infection of small-pox before they left the Plume, and after they had been out some days Mr. Pitcher was taken down with it, abandoned the trip, returned to the Plume, and is now convalescent. The other boys went on to a point about four miles beyond Pueblo, where they had to go into camp, with Scott quite bad; several days afterwards he died; and Bishop and Green buried him. They then burned their clothing and bedding and started back, leaving Mr. Cosgrove sick at Pueblo, where he had good care, and a dispatch received Wednesday by S. P. Bishop from Mr. Desmond says he was then doing well. John Bishop and Green are well, and are still in Denver.

Scott, Paul Matthew
Paul Matthew Scott - Pueblo Chieftain - January 12, 2011 - Paul Matthew Scott went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Jan. 10, 2011. Paul was born in Rathbun, Iowa, on Oct. 5, 1938. He was preceded in death by his parents, Jasper and Icle Scott; son, Lenny Scott; and mother-in-law, Ora Erbland, who loved him as her own. What a glorious reunion that must have been. Paul is survived by the love of his life, wife, April Scott. They cherished and loved each other from the moment they met. Two hearts, one love; that was their destiny. So, go my love and prepare a place for us ...wherever you are, my love will find you. He also leaves behind his daughter, Brenda Pullen; son, Brad Scott; and five grandchildren. Paul was the middle child of 10; brothers, Bobbie, Billie, Donald, Teddy, James, John, Daniel, and Michael; sister, Rachel; and too many friends and “adopted” family members to mention. Paul was a proud, devout, beautiful spirit, who loved the Lord with all his heart, and in so doing, taught many others, by example. The Lord shone through Paul's beautiful blue eyes. He always was a hard worker and could do anything with his hands. An excellent carpenter and craftsman; if he saw it, he could build it. Paul also loved to cook, especially for a crowd — the more, the merrier. He was well-known in the area for his barbecue sauce, salsa, and smoked goodies. Paul's wit, love of life and gentle good nature will be missed by all. Heaven is a much better place with him there. The family would like to thank Sangre de Cristo Hospice for helping to take care of Paul and helping him keep as much dignity as was possible during his final days. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial service, 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011, at First Church of the Nazarene, 84 Stanford Ave., with Pastor James Murray officiating.

Her grandchildren glowed in her heart with pride and they returned the same love with a simple word "Bamms" started by her eldest grandchild, Sarah. She had a love for intricate needle and bead work. Her Christmas tree would show her talent with the ornaments she would make. Samme also had such a creative spark for piecing together creative and beautiful costumes for her grandchildren and outfits for her girls when they were young.

Seavy, Jack
Jack Seavy - Pueblo Chieftain - October 25, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1984 - 1985 - Pueblo Economy Begins Recovery - They Made a Difference - Jack Seavy - Jack Seavy was viewed as a candid, gruff, to-the-point judge who said the law was not to tinker with, and if politics were the ticket of selecting a jurist, he never would have made it. Seavy first desired to become an engineer, and attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for two years. He then decided to follow his father's footsteps and become a Pueblo lawyer. His father was Vasco Seavy, a man who usually has the word "legendary" placed before his name in news stories. Jack Seavy fought in Europe as a paratrooper in World War II, and five years later, in 1950, graduated from the University of Colorado law school before joining his father's firm. The younger Seavy was first appointed to the bench in 1962, but was voted out months later. In 1969, with the law changed to its current non-political "yes" or "no" vote for sitting judges, Seavy was again named to the bench. He was not the type of man to schmooze or kiss babies in return for votes. Seavy had more than his share of controversial cases, but he concentrated on the complexity of the issues and left the discussion to others. Seavy heard the notorious O.D. Woolsey murder trial in the 1970s, and the double-murder conviction of William Houchin in 1986. But it was the May 1988 case of Donna Yaklich that garnered Seavy the most attention. She was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder for hiring two men to shoot her police officer husband, Dennis, and Seavy shocked most observers when he meted out a 40-year term for Yaklich. Seavy died May 31, 1989, after battling cancer for a year. Almost 400 people attended his services, and judges and lawyers alike praised Seavy for his keen grasp of the law, his fairness and his ability to treat defendants as individuals who were not guilty until proven so.

Sefton, Henry Thomas
Henry Thomas Sefton - LaVeta Advertiser - August 28, 1914 - Another Pioneer Dies - There are a number of Alamosa people who remember H. T. Sefton, who in the early days, conducted a general store at old Placer, where one could buy anything from a drink of boose (sic) to red calico; and old “Baldy,” as he was known, was one of those big hearted men whose heart was as big as charity demanded. Sefton, in later years, moved over on the Huerfano Creek, 20 miles north of La Veta, and conducted a small store at St. Mary's crossing until he became too old to look after his business. He was a thorough western character, rough and uncouth, but he retained a certain amount of refinement that really placed him in the category of an average bright man. But H. T. Sefton passed away last week, over in Huerfano at the advanced age of 80 years. Before the old man died he requested that his remains be buried in an old and almost forgotten cemetery on the Huerfano creek, near the Baxter ranch in which vicinity in the early days he had lived. He leaves four sons and one daughter and one step-son. [Editor's Note: Extracted from the Sefton Cemetery Page: Henry Sefton was the engineer that laid out many of the roads in upper Huerfano County, and built the toll road over Mosca Pass. When he felt it was his time to die, he wanted to be cremated on the top of the hill. He hauled dry timber to the spot to build his funeral pyre and instructed his fellow men to cremate his remains there. Henry Thomas Sefton was born in 1833 at Harrison, Hamilton County, Ohio. On 10-6-1878 in Huerfano County he married Mary Nelson, who was born in Georgia. Their first child, Sarah Catherine was born at Del Norte, Colorado; 2nd was Ora Mae, at Placer, Colorado; 3rd was William Cleveland born at Pueblo, Colorado; 4th was Henry Thomas Sefton Jr. also born in Pueblo; and last Stella Ethel Sefton born at St. Mary's, Colorado.] http://www.kmitch.com/Huerfano/seftoncem.html

Sena, Serina
Serina Sena - Pueblo Chieftain - May 5, 2012 - Suspect's fiancée defends him in crash that killed 3 - Flowers, balloons and get-well cards adorn Jordyn Carrillo's room at Parkview Medical Center. The 13-year-old Roncalli Middle School student reclined in bed Friday with bruises, stitches on her head and a broken femur and hip. Her left hand also is fractured. In the room with her were her mother, Tessa Carrillo, and two young children of the man accused of speeding on a Pueblo street, running a red light and crashing into a car that killed three teenage girls from Alamosa a week ago. Jordyn and her best friend, Jade Dorrance, 14, were riding in the bed of the truck driven by Gilbert O. Sanchez, 36, of Pueblo at the time of the accident about 9 p.m. Both were ejected in the collision. Jordyn said Friday that her own injuries are the last thing on her mind. "I am truly sorry for them (Alamosa teens). Every time I think of it, I just cry" she said, taking deep breaths as she spoke. Anisa Montoya, 18, Serina Sena, 14, and Selena Mascarenas, 14, died at the scene of the crash. Tessa Carrillo, who is engaged to Sanchez, said she had not seen Sanchez drinking on the day of the accident. "He is not the one to drink and drive, so this threw me for a shock," she said. "He is a great man. He does well with his kids," she said, pointing to Sanchez's two kids sitting in the hospital room. "He is an all-around good person. He made a bad decision and choice." Jordyn said she, Jade and Sanchez were on their way to buy some dog food at a store. They were leaving from visiting Sanchez's young son. "We held on to the truck and I had my arm around her, then I blacked out after we hit the car. I remember laying in the middle of the road and a man named Robert helped me, and he called my mom," Jordyn recalled. Jordyn said her main concern after the crash was Jade. ''I kept asking, 'Where's my sister, where's my sister?' "Jordyn said."They told me she had to fly up to Denver. We've been friends for nine years." Tessa Carrillo said when she received a phone call about the crash she did not believe the caller. "I thought they were playing with me. Everything was fine . . . It was just a shock," Tessa Carrillo said. Jordyn said the three teens have no reason to be dead right now. "They did not do anything wrong and I am truly sorry for their families," she said. Jordyn also expressed concern for Jade, who she considers a sister. "I talked to her on the phone two days ago before she went into surgery. I really miss her," Jordyn said. "She asked what was wrong with me and I told her. She said she was hurt too, but then she had to go." Jade is recovering at Denver Health Medical Center. She remained in stable condition Friday. Tessa Carrillo said Jordyn is making great strides with her condition. ''She is beyond a fighter. I told her the other night that I'd give all the money in the world to take her place, not to see her hurt. She told me, 'No mom.' ''I asked, 'Why?' and she said, 'Because you are not as strong as I am.' "Tessa Carrillo said she has talked with Sanchez since the accident and he is deeply apologetic."He's such a kind-hearted man. He is having a really difficult time dealing with what has happened. He sends his sympathy and condolences and his apologies," Tessa Carrillo said. "He said he can't apologize enough to the families in Alamosa." Tessa Carrillo said he wants to apologize to Jade and her family as well. "I don't know the feeling of losing a child . . . My heart goes out to them," she said. Tessa Carrillo said she has received several tormenting phone calls since the crash. "They have told me that I am the worst mother in the world and so many other things," she said as she wept. "We are all just trying to heal. I wish people wouldn't judge so quick." "I would do anything to take that day back." She also apologized to the community. "A lesson should be learned. Don't drink and drive," she said. Pueblo Chieftain - May 4, 2012 - Woman extends helping hand to families of victims - Becky Vialpando twice has received the dreaded news of fatal wrecks. One took her husband nine years ago. Her grown son died in another wreck four years ago. She continues healing those losses by helping others trying to cope with the same loss. As founder of the Ride to Give foundation, Vialpando has orchestrated numerous fundraisers for families in grief and in need. She'll host another one at 1 p.m. Sunday at Joey's Pixie Inn, 440 S. Santa Fe Ave., to help the Alamosa families of three teenage girls killed last weekend in a crash at Northern Avenue and Pueblo Boulevard. The event will include chile-smothered burrito plates (two burritos and rice) for $8, continuous entertainment and a raffle and live auction of donated items. Take-out meals will be available. Local guitarist Ray Peralta will kick off an open acoustics session for all musicians who'd like to play. The auction will be around 2 p.m. "We'll go until it's done -- as long as people want to eat and play," Vialpando said. She had just heard about the triple-fatal accident when one of her board members called and asked her if the foundation could help the families of the girls. By evening, this weekend's event was in the planning. "I found out they were from Alamosa and I just kind of put myself in that position, having been through it, and knew those families can't be prepared to do funerals," Vialpando said. "Doing this is just in me. I take it as God's reason for taking my man. I had so many people there to help me through my losses and the feeling that I get in my heart for helping someone else is just tremendous.''

Sharp, Donald Eaman
Donald Eaman Sharp - Huerfano Journal - February 28, 2013 - Donald Eaman Sharp, June 11, 1951 - February 2, 2013 - His life began 61 years ago in Dallas, Texas. His Canadian mother, Mary Elizabeth Shaver Eaman (Molly) and New Yorker father, Howard Macdonald Sharp, moved to Texas in search of a job. Day two in Dallas landed his father a job at Tempco. Day three landed his mother with their first born son. They lived in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for the next 9 years, joined by two brothers and a sister. In 1960 the family moved to Littleton, Colorado where Don attended school graduating from Arapahoe High School in 1969, followed with two years at Arapahoe Community College where he studied Art and Biology. An Eagle Scout, who attained God and Country status and Order of the Arrow, Don always enjoyed being outside, hunting rattlesnakes as a teenager and when older searching for mushrooms or spelunking in caves around the country and Mexico. Don enjoyed scuba diving when he was younger, was an expert skier, and often owned horses, pigs, chickens or ducks. He was most passionate though, about flying the Cessna Cardinal he co-owned with his brother. Don's demeanor was generally that of a happy camper and a loyal, courteous and cheerful boy scout. Don spent most of his working life in the families metal stamping and spinning factory, where he was an accomplished metal spinner. In the last 10 years, Don's primary focus was on building his home outside of Walsenburg, where views of the Spanish Peaks, and horses in the pasture hinted at the peace he had always hoped for. Construction on the house lingers to this day due to the insidious servitude alcoholism demands. The shadows of his dream were outlined by the slowly evolving house against the crumbling tack rooms and paddock. The happy camper, having nearly died at least five times since the age of 14, has closed his eyes in peace since the battle is finally over. Don Sharp's lifelong battle with alcoholism, ended when he suffered a fatal heart attack while attempting to get his pickup truck out of the ditch after a recent snow storm. Rest in Peace brother. Don was preceded in death by his mother in 2010, and his father in 2011. He leaves behind his two beloved dogs, Stitch and Bolo, who stood by his side from the moment of death until three or four days later when his body was discovered by a farmer on his way to feed the cows. His brother Ken lives in Pueblo, sister Janet Pritchett lives in Denver and Ridgway, and youngest brother Walter lives in Littleton.

Shaw, Charles
Charles Shaw – Pueblo Chieftain – November 23, 1917 – Charles Shaw, age 41 years, died at a local hospital yesterday afternoon. The remains are at Davis & Vories. Pueblo Chieftain – November 24, 1917 – Coroner's Jury Finds Insane Man Died of Natural Causes – An investigation into the death of Charles Shaw, inmate of the state hospital for the insane, who died at the hospital Thursday was held yesterday afternoon by Coroner Ray Taylor, and a coroner's jury at the Davis-Vories Mortuary. Shaw was committed to the asylum Monday from Cripple Creek. His death occurred suddenly and when his wife arrived Thursday afternoon she noticed bruises on his face and head and neck and demanded an investigation by the coroner. Coroner Taylor had a postmortem examination made by Dr. W. F. Rich. Dr. Rich testified at the inquest yesterday afternoon that he found a large number of bruises on the body of Shaw, all of which were of a superficial character and did not cause death and in his opinion were not contributing causes to the death of Shaw. Dr. Rich said that he found the man's stomach, bowels, and kidneys to be diseased and that his brain showed evidence of disease. He declared that death was due to weak heart action brought about by the general run down mental and physical condition of the man. Ward attendants and ward nurses at the asylum testified that Shaw had been admitted to the asylum and that he was assigned to the violent ward after the first day. They said he was affected by insane ideas of a grandiose character. The man was permitted to mingle with the other inmates in the recreation hall for a few minutes Wednesday morning, and while there became involved in a fight. He was thrown down and pummeled by one of the other inmates, but they were separated and Shaw was returned to his room. Wednesday evening he was permitted to leave his room again and meeting another inmate in the toilet he became involved in a second fight. During this fight Shaw was struck with a porcelain vessel before the ward attendants could separate them. Thursday morning Shaw was quite ill and hardly able to stand on his feet and he was in the care of a physician up to the minute of his death which occurred about noon Thursday. The coroner's jury found that Shaw's death was due to natural causes. The jury was in conference only a few minutes when the verdict was reached. The body of Shaw will be returned to his former home in Sydney, Ohio, and will be accompanied by his wife and two children. Before the illness which resulted in his being sent to the asylum here he was employed in Cripple Creek as a barber. He was 45 years old. Pueblo Chieftain – November 25, 1917 – The remains of Charles Shaw were forwarded by Davis & Vories to Sydney, Ohio, yesterday evening at 7: 05 o'clock.

Shaw, David
David Shaw - Rocky Mountain News - October 9, 1887 - David Shaw's Monument - Pueblo, Oct. 8 - On the second of September there occurred on the Denver and Rio Grande railway an accident to a heavily loaded passenger train by its plunging into a land-slide, which must have been a fearsome disaster but for the bravery of the engineer, David Shaw of Pueblo. This noble ____, instead of saving his own life by _____ (jumping?), he could easily have done, deliberately sacrificed it in saving the train and passengers from destruction. The Daily Chieftain has started a fund for the erection of a monument to brave Dave Shaw. This fund has gradually been growing until now it has reached very creditable proportions. Among the contributions is one of $100 from the Denver and Rio Grande Company, $10 from President Moffatt, $10 from General Manager Smith, $5 from Passenger Agent Hooper, and similar amounts from various other people, making a fund which now exceeds $200. It is hoped that it will reach $500 or $1,000, and the money will then be turned over to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers for the purchase of the monument.

Shepherd, Lois J.
Lois J. Shepherd – Pueblo Chieftain – February 16, 1918 – Former County Superintendent of Schools Here Dies in Ill. – A telegram to Ernest T. Shepherd of this city received from his sister, Miss Queen Shepherd, Urbana, Ill., yesterday forenoon announced the sudden death of their mother, Mrs. Lois J. Shepherd, at Urbana yesterday morning. No particulars were contained in the telegram further than to say that death followed a sudden illness. The body of the deceased will be brought to this city, accompanied by the daughter, Miss Queen Shepherd, and a son, Robert Shepherd, whose home is in Pa. the sad news received here by earnest Shepherd was his first intimation that his mother was not in her usual good health; in fact it followed closely the receipt by him of 2 or 3 letters from his mother in which the lady made no mention of any illness or indisposition. It is not impossible, however, that the sudden illness which terminated in Mrs. Shepherd's death, may have been attributable in part to exertion put forth in Red Cross work in which she had been in intensely interested. All her life an intensely patriotic citizen, Mrs. Shepherd had, since the outbreak of war, devoted much time and thought to the many and varied lines of work through which the patriotic women of the country have been helping to win the world struggle. Mrs. Shepherd was born in Kentucky 68 years ago. During her early childhood her parents moved to St. Louis, Mo., where she grew to womanhood. She was married to William Shepherd, and 35 years ago Mr. and Mrs. Shepherd came to Pueblo to make this city their home. Mr. Shepherd died 29 years ago, and since that time, with the exception of four years when Mrs. Shepherd held the office of County Superintendent of Schools in this county, she had taught school in the public schools of the city. About 18 months ago when she resigned her position and went to live with her daughter, Miss Queen Shepherd, at Urbana, Ill. Mrs. Shepherd was the first woman to hold the office of Superintendent of Schools in this county, and one of the first women in Colo. to be elected a County Superintendent of Schools. So efficiently and wisely did Mrs. Shepherd discharge the duties of that office, and so well did she demonstrate the particular fitness of women for that office that it was not long till throughout the state of Colo. the office of Superintendent of schools which had up to that time been filled by the election of a man, was, by general consent of the political parties and the voters of the various counties, set aside as an office to be filled by a woman. Later it became custom in the state to name only women to fill the important office of State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Today nearly every County Superintendent of Schools in Colo. is a woman, and the standard of instruction has been elevated to a point where the schools of the state occupy an enviable position in the country. A woman today occupies a position of State Superintendent of Public Instruction, as has been the case for many years past. It is only justice done to the splendid work of this quiet, noble, home- loving and scholarly pioneer gentlewoman to say that her splendid work in our institutions of learning, and her able administration of the important public office which she honored, have left a permanent imprint for good on the pages of the school history of the state that was so long her home. Mrs. Shepherd enjoyed the acquaintance of a great host of warm friends, not only in the city, but in surrounding towns and cities. Mrs. Shepherd is survived by 5 children: Ernest T. Of Pueblo; Miss Queen Shepherd of Urbana, Ill., who is an instructor in psychology and the University of Illinois; Robert, residing in Pa., Mrs. E. R. Chew of this city, and Mrs. Horace Lewis of Salt Lake City, Utah. The announcement of the time and place of the funeral services, which will be under the direction of McCarthy's, will be made later.

Pueblo Chieftain – January 1, 1919 – In Memoriam – Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God, in his inscrutable providence, to call to a higher realm our beloved brothers, Daniel Clement Fenton, John S. Shiller, and W. E. Beauvais, who laid down their lives on the battlefield of France, therefore it is Resolved, That every Knight of Columbus throughout the land feels a personal pride in the heroic sacrifice made by them so nobly and unselfishly, upon the altar of their country. They, in the bloom of youth, gallantly went forward to their death, that tyranny and oppression might not obtain a foothold in the land. They fought and died for principles most sacred to the human heart. Their homes and firesides have been made desolate that those of others might remain in peace and security. Such a sacrifice surely must merit the never ending gratitude of all future generations. The heroism of their death will be a consolation to their bereaved relatives, yet we fully realize the void that has come into their lives by the death of those so near and dear to them. We pray that our Divine Savior who said, "Greater love than this, no man hath, than to lay down his life for his friend," will reward them according to the sacrifice they have made. Resolved, that an annual solemn Requiem high mass be sung for them, the first of which will be Thursday, January 2, at 9 o'clock at St. Patrick's Church; and be it further Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be sent to the bereaved relatives, one spread upon the minutes of the Council, and one sent to the local press.

Through these experiences he developed a sense of commitment to hard work that would remain with him until the day he passed from this life.

He would not talk a great deal about his experiences while in the service, and did not share the fact that he was the recipient of several medals, including the Distinguished Flying Cross for service above and beyond.

Sidow, Mary Louise
Mary Louise Sidow – Pueblo Chieftain – June 4, 1917 – Slips Away from Dance Kills Self – Slipping away from the jolly chatter of a particularly merry dance given on the south side, Mrs. Mary L. Sidow rode 20 miles through the darkness of the late hours to her lonely ranch home, near Huerfano Lake, and there ended her life by swallowing a quantity of strychnine poisoning. No motive has been assigned for the rash act of the woman, who was 40 years old and comparatively well known on the south side. Mrs. Sidow was the wife of a steelworker, who remained in the city while she lived on their farm which the couple were equipping with modern machinery and stocking up with money he earned at the Minnequa plant. Their land had been homesteaded and they some time ago proved up on their claim and were in possession of the deed. Saturday Mrs. Sidow came to Pueblo and did some shopping. In the evening, with her husband, she attended a dancing party in Bessemer. There she met a number of old friends and it was considered that she was having a good time. The party ended, Mrs. Sidow started her team of horses in the direction of her home and made the long journey alone in the darkness. Yesterday morning A. M. Schroeder, a neighbor, went to the home of Mrs. Sidow at 7 o'clock and hearing groans, he entered the house. He found the woman in bed and evidently in convulsions. Schroeder hurried to the home of A. M. Bartlett and the two men returned quickly with what was considered to be an antidote for poison, but when they reached the woman the body was lifeless on the bed, with evidence that she had died in agony. Mrs. Sidow's husband was notified of the tragedy Sunday morning and went to the ranch home. He said his wife was inclined to be somewhat despondent, but he did not consider that she ever had contemplated self-destruction. Corner Ray Taylor investigated the death and decided that the woman had ended her life by swallowing strychnine poison, administered by her own hand. There will be no inquest. The body is at the Davis-Vories parlors. Funeral arrangements have not been made. Pueblo Chieftain - June 7, 1917 - The funeral of Mrs. Mary Louise Sidow was held yesterday morning at 11 o'clock from the Davis-Vories Chapel. The Rev. T. F. Weiskotten conducted the services. Mrs. Mahlon Saxton and Miss Willia Vanderslice, accompanied by Miss Alma Jones, sang "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," "Face to Face," and "Rock of Ages."

Jacque loved dancing and was a natural. She also had a beautiful voice that carried through her life. She was an accomplished pianist and played her baby grand piano while lulling her children to sleep. Those who knew her witnessed someone serenely non-judgmental and wise. She may have been an angel. We, the nine grateful children and 10 adored grandchildren, wish to publicly thank our parents for raising us with such tender love and respect. We are fortunate to have been the beneficiaries of mother's extraordinary grace, courage and commitment. Her unconditional love will nourish our hearts forever. It was her gift to all. A life celebration of Jacque will be held Saturday, April 14. Tributes begin at 1 p.m. with reception to follow. Please note this is a compulsory event for Slovenian relatives.

When WWII broke out and Cecil went with the Marines to the South Pacific, Pauline returned from California to Pueblo for the duration of the war. Upon Cecil's safe return, the couple moved with their two small children to Denver, where she worked at several jobs, retiring from Fort Logan Mental Health Center's research department. After her husband's death and fire destroyed their retirement home in Spirit Lake, Idaho, Pauline moved to Casper to be near her daughter and family, where she had lived since 1989. In Casper, she soon became part of the community, volunteering to rock babies for several daycare facilities; helping in the Westwood school library; participating in Christian Women's Club and After 5 Outreach; and helping to deliver Meals on Wheels for several years with her daughter. She enjoyed participating in a weekly Bible study group, where her knowledge of Scripture was inspiring. She loved traveling, camping, fishing and hunting with her family in the West. She also was an avid sports fan of the Denver Broncos, Colorado Rockies and Colorado Avalanche. Pauline was preceded in death by her parents; one older brother, James M. Scheurer; an older sister, Mary Elizabeth Engelbrecht; and her beloved husband of 49 years, Cecil. She is survived by her older sister, Lucille Marie Thornton of Canon City, Colo.; daughter, Maureen (Rodger) Thompson of Casper; son, Michael Paul (Judith Ann) Simms of Safford, Ariz.; grandchildren, Davin and Bryon Simms, Candace Tadlock, Leticia Drake and Kyle Thompson; eight great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews who dearly loved her.

Memorials may be made to Casper First Church of the Nazarene, Shepherd of the Valley Care Center, Maurice Griffith Manor, Set Free, Meals on Wheels or a charity of the donor's choice.

Simola, William
William 'Bronco Bill' Simola - Trinidad Times Independent - August 19, 2008 - William G. Simola, 69, affectionately known to everyone as "Bronco Bill," went on to his well deserved heavenly reward Aug. 14 in the Denver area. After a gallant fight, Bronco Bill finally succumbed to injuries sustained after he was struck by an automobile. Bronco Bill will be forever remembered as a unique person, gentle soul, a man of strong faith, tireless worker and dependable friend. Bronco Bill was born in 1938 to Efficio and Rose Simola. After attending Holy Trinity schools, Bill began his working career at the Chronicle-News. He later became a custodian at the Department of Social Services and then the Las Animas County Jail, under good friend Sheriff Lou Girodo. Bill finished out his career as a custodian at School District No. 1, where co-worker Bill Nuschy became Bill's special buddy. At each of his employment stops, Bill became a good friend to each and every co-worker and associate. And he wasn't satisfied until his job duties were done to perfection. A devout Catholic, Bill's faith drove him to attend Holy Mass every day, for years at 6:30 a.m., and take part in the community Rosary, Nocturnal Adoration and various prayer groups. He donated countless hours to and raised tens of thousands of dollars for Trinidad Catholic Schools, Holy Trinity Parish, Holy Trinity Clothing Center, the Knights of Columbus and other Catholic and charitable ventures. No one can ever recall Bill saying "no" when it came time to raise money or do good for others. Bill also was a member of the local Elks lodge and regularly took part in meetings and charitable events for that group. In both the Knights and Elks, Michael DiPaolo was Bill's close associate and partner. Although Bill was a worker who never seemed to stop, he also knew how to have fun. His varied interests included antique cars, sports, roller skating, his cherished Jeep Cherokee, horse racing, concerts, biking, dining out, dancing, record and autograph collecting, and, of course, buying everything and anything related to his beloved John Elway and the Denver Broncos in general. His collection was amazing, and his apartment above Skateland resembled a gridiron museum. Bill's trademark, so to speak, were the annual football betting "pools" that he faithfully ran each and every football season for decades. He could often be seen scurrying around town with that big, white pool board, hustling customers and getting the board filled in anticipation of another great season. It's safe to say that football season in Trinidad won't ever be the same without Bill and his pools. In his retirement, Bill never slowed down. Whether it was dog watching for his friend Lynn Smith, attending prayer and pro life meetings, traveling to concerts with Eli and Zak DeBono, working on his Jeep, or doing good for others, Bill made the most of every waking moment. He was a person who truly embraced and enjoyed life and he held his family and friends close to his heart. Everywhere he went, Bill made friends easily and quickly, whether it was a professional athlete at a fund-raiser or a homeless man in Denver. A person of Bill's caliber and character won't ever be replaced. Thankfully, we all have many memories of Bill which can serve us until we join our beloved friend. We should all try to live life the way Bill did: simply and with vigor, faith and excitement. Arrangements pending at Comi Funeral Home.

Carl Simonson – Pueblo Chieftain – June 12, 1917 – Registration for Selective Draft in Pueblo County Precincts – The county board of registration yesterday completed the copying of all of the names on the war service eligible list in the county precincts outside the city of Pueblo… The complete list of all registered in the 31 precincts outside the city of Pueblo is as follows: County Precinct 27 – Simonson, Carl Albert, Goodpasture. 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. County List – Six more names were received yesterday morning by the county board which placed the total eligible for the call to arms this afternoon at 45, three short of the required quota of 48 to say nothing of the alternates… Those who have been ordered to report are as follows: Carl Albert Simonson. Pueblo Chieftain – September 29, 1918 – Carl Simonson Dies of Wounds in France – According to a telegram received yesterday by John Simonson of Goodpasture, his son, Carl A. Simonson is dead as a result of wounds received in action, September 7, 1918. Young Simonson was sent to Camp Funston on October 7, 1917 and from there he went to Camp Kearny, where he stayed until he was sent abroad. He was with the 138th Infantry and Company "A." His father is a pioneer of this county and he too is well known both in the county and in Pueblo. He is survived by his parents and three brothers and three sisters. Pueblo Chieftain – October 8, 1918 – Eight Coloradoans on Casualty List: 2 Killed in Action, 5 Wounded – Colorado Boys - Killed in Action: Orlo McRae, La Veta, Colorado; Died of Wounds: Carl A. Simonson, Goodpasture, Colorado. Pueblo Chieftain – November 3, 1918 – Thought Comrade Alive and Wrote Dead Boy's Folks – An example of the comradeship which exists between the soldiers at the front is touchingly shown in the following incident. Cpl. Frank Coleman and Carl Albert Simonson of Goodpasture, Pueblo County, upon entering the fight, agreed that if anything should happen to one of them, that the other would take the best possible care of him and write at once to his parents and keep them posted. Carl was wounded in the left side by a shell and Frank helped to get him to a supply station and had his wound attended to. Thinking that he would be sent to a base hospital and be all right, Frank went back to the trenches. This was on September 6 and on the 7th Carl died. Frank, laboring hard in the trenches, knew nothing of this and wrote the following letter to John Simonson, father of Carl, on September 15: "Will write you a few lines as you will not hear from Albert Carl, for some time. He got a bullet wound in his left side during the battle, we had on 6 September. I was glad that I was near as I helped to take care of him. The first aid man told me that it was not serious, but it will take some time and care for him. Don't be uneasy about him as I will keep posted from his Company Commander as to how he gets along and write you. "We are now back of the lines for a rest and some training. I cannot say anything about the changes we make or what we do. I am still feeling pretty good. "We get along real well with the French people. They are hard to understand, but have a good spirit. "I just mailed the folks a letter, telling them about Albert but I thought that I would write you people too, as he asked me to. He will be all right soon, so don't worry about him." This letter was only received a few days ago, almost a month after the news of the death of his son, Carl, was announced to Mr. Simonson, by the government. Pueblo Chieftain - March 8, 1999 - Our Past Century, 1918 - 1919 - Pueblo Goes to War and a Deadly Flu Strikes - Look out, Kaiser! Here comes Bessemer!" That was the sign at Union Depot one chilly April morning in 1918 as another contingent of boisterous Pueblo draftees headed off to Army training camps in California and Kansas - just part of the 16,000 Pueblo-area men who registered for the draft in World War I. Pueblo's newspapers were bursting with pride as American soldiers, dubbed "Sammies" by reporters, began heading overseas that spring… It had to be a frightening time for Pueblo families because the newspapers were full of stories of terrible fighting in blood-drenched France. Gas attacks and terrible artillery barrages. Meanwhile, Pueblo's boys were writing home about life in Army camps, letters that often were printed in the papers. Innocent and sentimental accounts of "good chow" and high morale... Pueblo, like the nation, was on an austerity budget to help with the war effort. There were "wheatless" days and "lightless" nights. When the regional federal fuel administrator suggested that Pueblo citizens might want to "go to bed an hour early" or conduct combined church services to help conserve coal, Pueblo churches immediately sent back a terse "no thank you." All the patriotic fanfare, however, was dimmed a little on Feb. 6 when the troop ship Tuscania was torpedoed and sunk, killing hundreds. On board was Pvt. Paul A. Williams of Pueblo. He was the first of 52 local men who would die in the war. Pueblo families had to be anxious as they knew their sons and brothers (as well as daughters who were Red Cross nurses) came ever closer to the endless trenches and carnage of The Front. On March 1, a dispatch from Gen. John J. Pershing's headquarters in France said that Lt. Robert R. Cooper had been wounded in fighting. "Bob" Cooper, a South Sider, was praised for being the "first Puebloan to take a Hun bullet for his country." But April brought news of U.S. troops in heavy fighting in France and suddenly the Army dispatches became terse and grim. The Pueblo newspapers began printing the daily casualty lists. First of a dozen names. Then another 50 names. The stories only gave the soldiers' names and ranks, not their hometowns. The names were divided by categories: killed in action, died from wounds, missing, died from disease, or wounded. On April 10, a frighteningly long casualty list of 400 names was published, taking columns of print. But that would quickly become routine. By July 1, more than 5,000 "Sammies" had been killed and 6,000 wounded… All summer, the fighting raged in Europe, even though it was clear that Germany and Austria were at the end of their strength. Of course, the fresh American units were being pushed into the fighting and Pueblo's boys were now appearing on the lists of the killed: Carl Simonson, Dean N. Jenks, Charles Merriam, William Butt, Steve Lucero, Luther Collins.

Simpson, Joseph Merced
Joseph Merced Simpson - Rocky Mountain News - December 2, 1890 - Cruelly Murdered - Joseph Simpson Shot from Ambush in a Lonely Canon Near Trinidad - Trinidad, Colo., Dec. 1 - Word was brought to this city Sunday morning that Joseph Merced Simpson had met his death in a lonely canon about nine miles west of the city. Nothing definite in regard to the affair was learned till today, when the remains were brought to this city by Undertaker Turner, and now lie at his establishment, awaiting the action of the coroner's jury. Friday afternoon Simpson left this city to proceed to his home west of Long's Canon. This was the last seen of him alive. He had evidently driven into the canon, where his body was discovered, preparatory to crossing Long's Canon. A shot was fired into him either by someone with him in the wagon or concealed among the trees beside the road. The body seems to have fallen from the vehicle as the horses sprang forward, startled by the shot, and the murderer or murderers fired three more shots into the body after it fell. The remains were not discovered until Sunday morning. The horses were first discovered hitched to a wagon, the latter having brought them to a standstill by a collision with a stump. A short distance away the cruelly riddled body lay beside the trail. Two bullets had entered his head, one exactly in the center of the forehead. Three others had been fired into his body. The coroner's jury is now at work investigating his death, and it is very probably that there will be developments in the next few days that will lead to the apprehension of his murderers. Simpson leaves a wife and two children to mourn his death. He was a son of George Simpson, the hero of the incident which helped to give the bluff north of the city its name - Simpson's rest - and a brother of Mrs. N. T. Cavalier, a well known and estimable lady of this city. Mrs. George Simpson, the mother of the deceased, is still alive, and resides with one of her daughters in this city. Rocky Mountain News - December 11, 1890 - Served With Warrants - Trinidad, Colo., Dec. 10 - The coroner's jury in the Simpson case have made their report and as a consequence two of the Orragons have been served with warrants and they will appear before Justice Cook to-morrow morning for a preliminary trial. The feeling among the Mexicans is very strong in favor of the suspects and every effort will be made to clear them. It is stated that a bond for any amount can be secured for their release in case they are bound over to the district court. That a partial confession has been made there is no doubt, but it is said to be very incomplete, and has not implicated all who were concerned in the affair. The feeling against Simpson was very bitter among the Mexicans and the defense of the prisoners will be strongly backed. The law will not allow race prejudice to interfere in any manner, and the public only desire that justice be meted out. A correct idea of the guilt or innocence of the Orragons will be gained at the trial tomorrow morning.
