Joanne Eva "Bushy" Tatarewicz - Montgomery & Steward - January 18, 2013 - Joanne Eva "Bushy" Tatarewicz, 76, passed away January 8, 2013, in Pueblo, Colorado. Born to Anna Dombrowski in Reading, Pennsylvania, on January 11, 1936, she was the oldest of five; one sister, Amelia "Mickey" Franckowiak; and three brothers, James "Jimmy", Joseph "Junior", and Thaddeus "Toddy" Franckowiak ("Toddy" was killed in an accident in 1976). She married Walter Anthony Tatarewicz in 1969, in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Joanne and Walter lived in Reading, Pennsylvania, and had two children together, a daughter, Sandra "Sandy" Lee Tatarewicz on June 12, 1957, and Michael Tatarewicz on February 6, 1962. She became a widow in May 1977, when Walter passed away due to a battle with cancer. Joanne then became a single widow with two children to support, so she went to work as a finished examiner at Talbolt's knitting mills. Joanne became a grandmother when her daughter Sandra, had her own daughter named Stephanie Joanne Tatarewicz on April 11, 1981. During this time, Joanne's son Michael "Mike" joined the US Navy, where he was onboard the submarine USS Gato. Tragedy struck on December 15, 1982, when her only daughter Sandra Lee, was killed in a car accident by a drunk driver as she was coming home from work. Sandy's death left Joanne without a daughter, Mike without a sister, and 18 month old Stephanie without a mother. Joanne stepped in and became a mother to Stephanie instead of a grandma. She raised Stephanie and even survived a failing heart valve in 1986, when she was forced to have open heart surgery to replace the failed valve with a mechanical valve. Joanne recovered from the surgery and went on to become a full time mother and only parent in Stephanie's upbringing. She then lost her mother, Anna Gatto (Franckowiak) in 1988, also after a battle with cancer. Joanne was tough as nails, but a person can only handle so much loss before it takes a toll on them. She slowly went into a chronic depression, which she later added to her list of battles she won after getting a little treatment and some help in dealing with past losses. Joanne continued living in Reading, Pennsylvania, until she sold her home and went to stay with her son Mike, in Delran, New Jersey. After that she moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, briefly with Stephanie and her family, then her and Mike moved to Tooele, Utah. Her final move was to Pueblo, Colorado, where she resided with Mike until she passed away. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium.

Tavares, Christopher O.
Christopher O. Tavares - Pueblo Chieftain - January 1, 2013 - A male suspect who allegedly shot a Pueblo police officer in the shoulder was fatally shot about an hour later early this morning as he ignored orders from a second police officer. The injured police officer is in good condition at a Pueblo hospital, said Sgt. Eric Gonzales, Pueblo police spokesman. The names of the wounded officer, who is a veteran officer who has also worked for another law enforcement agency, and the dead suspect have not been released. Pueblo police officers arrested one other suspect and are searching for up to two others involved in the incident. Patrol officers heard gunshots at about 3 a.m. near 11th and Greenwood. While searching for the source of the gunshots officers saw a suspicious vehicle speeding away from the area, Gonzales said. The officers in the patrol car gave chase and the suspect vehicle crashed a short time later on the 800 block of Craig Street. One of as many as four suspects fired a shot at a police officer as he drove to the scene and struck him in the shoulder. That officer was still able to return fire. As many as three suspects ran away. One of the suspects was arrested at the scene of the crash, Gonzales said. Police put out a description of the suspect saying that he was wearing dark clothing, a ball cap, possibly with a red brim. The memo indicated the suspect may be injured. Pueblo Chieftain - January 2, 2013 - Arrest made in Pueblo officer-involved shooting - Police have identified two other suspects connected to the New Year's Day officer-involved shooting. Marquis Robinson, 22, of Colorado Springs was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of eluding, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license. He is being held in the Pueblo County jail without change of bail pending a court hearing. Kenneth Hastings, 21, also of Colorado Springs, was interviewed by police and released. Robinson was identified as the driver of the vehicle that took off when officers tried to pull him over. He allegedly led officers on a short vehicle pursuit before he crashed into a light pole in the 800 block of Craig Street. Robinson, along with Hastings and Christopher O. Tavares, also of Colorado Springs, took off running in different directions from the vehicle. Tavares, 21, later was shot and killed by an officer. Police said Robinson was caught by an officer and resisted arrest, refusing to be placed into cuffs when captured. Hastings was caught in the same area a short time later without incident. Pueblo Chieftain - January 2, 2013 - Suspected shooter killed by police in north Pueblo - Colorado Springs man shot near Elizabeth Street and I-25 - The new year got off to a deadly start on Tuesday after police allegedly shot and killed a 21-year-old man who earlier was suspected of shooting and injuring a Pueblo police officer. The officer, who was not named, was in stable condition at Parkview Hospital where he is being treated for a gunshot wound to the shoulder, according to Police spokesman Sgt. Eric Gonzales. The man, who was shot and killed by an officer responding to the initial call, has been identified as Christopher O. Tavares, 21 of Colorado Springs, according to Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer. Kramer said the preliminary cause of death is a gunshot wound to the chest. An autopsy has been scheduled for today. The fatal shooting was the second involving an officer in just one week. A 40-year-old man was shot and killed by police Dec. 25 after it was reported he fired on officers responding to a call of a man threatening a woman and her children with a gun. Tuesday's incident started at about 3 a.m. when officers on patrol in the area of 11th and Greenwood streets, heard what they thought suspected gunshots. While searching the neighborhood, police saw a suspicious vehicle leaving the area, according to Gonzales. Officers chased the vehicle for several blocks before it crashed a short time later in the 800 block of Craig Street. Three occupants in the vehicle fled on foot with at least one suspect firing a shot at a police officer who had just arrived on the scene. Gonzales said one suspect was arrested immediately and a second suspect was later taken into custody. The names of those individuals arrested have not been released. The officer who was shot returned fire but Gonzales said it was unknown whether anything was hit. The officer was taken to Parkview Medical Center, where Gonzales said he is recovering from his injuries. "He is in pain, as can be expected, but (he) reports that doctors don't anticipate surgery at this time," Gonzales said. Police aired a description of the suspect who fired on the officer. He was described as a black male wearing dark clothing and a ball cap with a red brim. About an hour after the officer was shot, Gonzales said a detective who was en route to the scene on Craig Street, saw a male matching the description of the suspect walking near U.S. 50 and Elizabeth Streets. The detective attempted to contact the suspect, according to Gonzales. "Initial information is that detective shouted commands and the person did not follow the commands. The suspect was then shot," he said. No other information was available regarding whether the suspect threatened the detective, Gonzales said. "The CIT (Critical Incident Team) has taken over the investigation," he said. The 10th Judicial District's CIT is a group of investigators from every law enforcement agency in Pueblo County who investigate serious officer-involved incidents. The detective is on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure with such incidents. Gonzales said Tuesday afternoon he could not confirm whether the deceased male was the suspect in the shooting. "Until we have a positive identification, we won't know if this is our suspect," he said. The intersection of U.S. 50 and I-25 was closed for most of the day while CIT members investigated the fatal shooting. Crime scene tape surrounded an area of open space located between North Elizabeth Street and the I-25 off ramp to U.S. 50. Approximately 3 miles away, detectives worked the second crime scene where the officer was shot and the suspect vehicle crashed. The area around Craig and Blake streets was cordoned off for most of the day. Inside the crime scene tape on Craig Street was a green compact car with the doors wide open that was crashed into a curb. Gonzales said the incident has been complicated to investigate because there are two crime scenes. "Once crime scene is being investigated by the police department and the other by the CIT, so right now the information coming out is a lot slower because it is spread out so far."

Tawse, Sally Ruth
Sally Ruth Hane Tawse - Pueblo Chieftain - October 4, 2009 - Sally Tawse, 72, died Sept. 29, 2009, in Pueblo, Colo., after two years of failing health. She was surrounded by her family who loved her absolutely. A mother, wife, friend, grandmother, sister, aunt, nurse, artist and rebel spirit, she will be missed by many. She was born to Richard L. Hane, M.D., and Ruth H. Hane on Nov. 6, 1936 in Fort Wayne, Ind.; subsequently she lived in Astoria, Ore., Pacific Grove, Santa Barbara, Newport Beach, Oakhurst, Fresno and Tuolumne, Calif., prior to moving with her husband to Pueblo in 1983. She found much joy in the family's simple cabin in Beulah. No matter where she lived, Sally remained connected to the Pacific Ocean. Its natural beauty was a lifelong source of joy. A registered nurse who never chose an "easy assignment," Sally graduated from the Knapp School of Nursing in Santa Barbara in 1958. She loved caring for her patients, whether in the intensive care unit or the teen ward, and she was a lifelong advocate for respecting the sick. She pulled no punches as a nurse, even later in her career when she an RN on one of tougher wards at the Colorado State Hospital. Married to her Pacific Grove H.S. sweetheart, Clinton "Rusty" Tawse, in 1957 in the Church of the Wayfarer, Carmel, Calif., Sally set and pulled up roots with her family many times. While the geography changed, her children were her compass for life. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Clinton Hughes Tawse; her sister, Nancy Spiekerman of Stockton, Calif.; her children, Sylvia Ruth Tawse of Longmont, Richard Clinton Tawse of Pueblo, Jennifer Ann Tawse of Boulder and Bonnie Jean Tawse of Chicago; and her grandchildren, Cassidy Ann Tawse-Garcia, Emily Stromm Davis, Madeline Artemis Davis, Clinton Hart Davis, Claire Pema Stalhuth, Samuel Hughes Grossman and Benjamin Isaac Grossman; and by her nephews, Scott Pilchard and Chuck Spiekerman; and nieces, Susie Todd, Suzanne Pech and her namesake, Sally Hutley. Sally was an amateur artist with special talent in watercolor and, later in life, sticker art - especially loved by her grandchildren as well as the local post office employees. She had a gifted eye for art, collecting those works she simply loved: Kloss, Helgoe, Radeaux, Solano, among others. Her life was surrounded by folk, fine and grandchildren' s' art as if every wall or cranny was an opportunity to appreciate visual beauty and sharp wit, both of which she also possessed. Never one to spend unwisely, Sally knew how to make a family feast from little and clever gifts from garage sale-discovered treasures.

Teller, Henry Moore
Henry Moore Teller - LaVeta Advertiser - February 27, 1914 - Former Senator H. M. Teller Dead - Pioneer Colorado Statesman Passes Away After Two-Year Fight For Life - Nearly 84 Years Old - Expired at Daughter' s Home in Denver After Sinking Spell - Denver, Feb. 23 - Former United States Senator Henry M. Teller, one of Colorado' s best known pioneers and public men, is dead. The aged statesman expired as he lay surrounded by members of his family at 12: 25 Monday morning at the home of his daughter, Mr. G. E. Tyler, 1353 Gaylord Street. Mr. Teller had been ill for the last two years. He had failed rapidly in the last two weeks and death was momentarily expected. He would have been 84 years old May 23, 1914. The death of Mr. Teller closes the life of one of Colorado' s most active builders. Coming to the state in 1861, he was identified with every important public movement and did not cease to take an interest in public affairs up to his death. He lapsed into unconsciousness shortly after 10 o' clock Sunday night. Physicians who attended him since he began to fail were called in. The end was near, they declared, and members of the family were notified. They remained at the bedside until death came. Surviving former Senator Teller are his daughter, Mrs. Tyler; Harrison J. and H. B. Teller, sons, and H. T. Tyler, a grandson; District Judge James H. Teller and Addison Teller, Brothers, and Mary E. Teller, a sister living at Morrison, Ill. Henry Moore Teller, recognized as one of the leading statesmen of the country, was born in Granger, Alleghany County, New York, May 23, 1830. He was the son of John and Charlotte (Moore) Teller. The family was of Dutch origin, the seventh in descent from William Teller, the first of the name to come to this country. William Teller in 1639 settled in Fort Orange, and was appointed trustee to a tract of land. Henry Teller worked on the farm in Alleghany County, attending the common schools. By teaching, later, he earned the money to attend Alfred University and Rushford Academy. Then he taught school again and entered upon the study of his profession in the law office of Judge Martin Grover, Angelica, N.Y. January 5, 1858, he was admitted to the bar in Binghamton, that state. He began practice in Morrison, remaining there from 1858 until 1861, when he crossed the plains to Colorado. In Central City he opened his law office, three years later to be joined by his brother, when the firm of H. M. and W. Teller was established. During the Indian troubles of 1863, he was appointed by Governor John Evans major general of the Colorado militia. After two years of service Mr. Teller resigned. In 1878 he was made chairman of the special committee to investigate the charges of election frauds in the Southern states, concerning which he made a careful and elaborate report. He served as chairman of the committee on civil service and retrenchment. Originally Mr. Teller was a Democrat. He became, however, one of the adherents of the Republican party when it was organized. He was one of the projectors of the Colorado Central railroad, drafted its charter in 1865, and with W. A H. Loveland presented it to the Legislature. It was successful and for five years he was president of the road. About this time he became interested in mining and other enterprises in addition to his legal practice. After the admittance of Colorado to the Union - 1876 - he and Jerome Chaffee were elected United States senators, Teller being elected for the short term - three months, ending March 1877. He was then elected senator for the full term of six years (1877-1883). Although a new member, he was placed in active work by being put on many of the important committees. One of the appointments was on the committee sent to Florida to investigate the frauds of 1876. In April, 1882, he was appointed secretary of the interior by President Arthur, his term expiring March, 1885. The day following he again took his seat in the Senate, succeeding Hon. N. P. Hill. In 1891 he was re-elected, also in 1897, his work and influence increasing in every session. He was especially recognized as an authority on public lands and other questions relating to the West. He became the champion of free coinage of silver, believing the demonetization act of 1873 had not only proven disastrous to Colorado, but to the entire nation as well. After the defeat of the free silver issue in the Republican national convention held in St. Louis, 1896, Mr. Teller and his followers left the convention hall. He was made a member of the monetary commission in 1911. The degree L.L.D. was conferred upon him by Alfred University in 1886.

Jack and Julie were members of the ski patrol for Ski Cooper. Jack also presided as the Exalted Ruler of the Leadville Elks Lodge. The family soon grew as sons John and Jim were born. Jack and Julie moved their family from Leadville to Fort Collins in 1957 so that their sons would have the opportunity to attend Colorado State University. The Temple family continued to grow as two more sons, Joe and Jeff, were born. Jack worked as an electrical lineman and troubleshooter for more than 40 years with Public Service Company of Colorado.

Before marrying Harry on Dec. 20, 1941, she worked for General Foods in Denver as a secretary. During WWII, she lived in New Orleans and San Antonio. She and her young family lived in Grand Junction after WWII until moving to Pueblo in 1950. After her sons were all in school, she went back to work full-time, first as a secretary for the school district, then working for over 20 years as a secretary for the Colorado State Hospital, along with raising her four sons and running a household. After retiring, she took up golf, enjoyed her friends and grandchildren. She was a member of PEO Chapter BQ, First Presbyterian Church and La Sertoma. She always had a craft project going in retirement, including making a quilt for each of her four sons and daughters-in-law and eight grandchildren, and then knitting afghans for each son, daughter-in-law and grandchild, along with numerous other knitting requests from family members. She got to know each of her grandchildren personally and each was special to her. As time went on she especially enjoyed her daughters-in-law as they would engage her in conversation and tell her things her verbally challenged sons would not. She once remarked that she couldn't have any better daughters-in- law than if she had picked each one herself. She was loved and respected as a mom, mother-in-law and grandmother and her strength and relationships with her family will live long past her passing. A memorial service for friends and family is planned for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 18, 2009, in the chapel at Imperial Memorial Gardens, with interment of her ashes to follow. No flowers.

Templin, Harold A.
Harold A. Templin - Sacramento Bee - November 21, 2008 - Harold A. Templin, who operated a dental practice in Sacramento for half a century, has died at the age of 90. He died Thursday after an extended illness, said his son, Larry Templin. Dr. Templin was born Sept. 27, 1918, in Trinidad, Colo., and moved to California after graduating from high school. He lived in San Jose and became a licensed pilot in 1939, the start of a lifelong love of flying. "He owned an airplane before he owned an automobile," his son said. Dr. Templin graduated from what was then San Jose State College in 1942 with an aeronautics degree and enlisted in the Navy, where he served as a flight instructor and in the Naval Air Transport Service piloting aircraft to locations where they were needed. Dr. Templin married his wife, Margaret, on Nov. 1, 1945. He left the Navy in 1946 as a lieutenant and studied dentistry at Baylor University, graduating from the dental college in 1949. He moved to Sacramento in 1950 and opened his practice on 26th Street in midtown. In 1968, he moved his office a half-block down the street to its current location at 1316 26th St., and in 1975 his son joined the practice as a dentist. In 1978, one of his daughters, Anne Indermill, joined the practice as a dental hygienist. Dr. Templin continued to work in his practice until he was 83, his son said, working about two days a week. "He loved it," his son said. Dr. Templin also continued flying, renting planes for short trips or vacations. "He stopped flying in 1989," his son said. "He said that after 50 years, it was a good time to stop. "There are a lot of radio requirements if you're flying in the Sacramento area, and he decided he didn't want to be an airborne radio operator, and so it was time to stop." Dr. Templin also enjoyed photography and attending "every activity his kids ever did, and his grandchildren," his son said. "I think he was a giving person," Larry Templin said. "He was generous to a fault. "He devoted himself to his family and would do anything for anybody if they needed it. He was always off helping friends paint or whatever. He just loved to go around helping friends. And he was very quiet about it."

Edward was preceded in death by his parents and four brothers. Services are pending. Newcomer Funeral Home - December 2, 2012 - My grandpa was the best grandpa anyone could ever ask for. He was a strong, hardworking cowboy. As a matter of fact he was still hauling hay up until a few years ago. Some of my best memories are of those hay hauling trips. We took a road trip together just about every weekend. If we weren' t hauling a load of hay we were hauling a horse. Every weekend we went to a new little town somewhere in Colorado. Grandpa would have a story for every town and he always knew the best place to get lunch. We would always stop on our way out of town at some little hole in the wall cafΓ© and have a bacon cheeseburger and fries. Those trips usually turned into quite the adventure. Like the time we went to Trinidad to pick up one of our race horses. I was about 15 years old and he promised me we would be back early so I could go hang out with my friends. We left before the sun came up just to be safe. We were down there and had the horse loaded by breakfast, things were looking good until grandpa decided to stop in Colorado City on our way home to see his brother. Wouldn' t you just know all of his cattle were out! We spent the entire day rounding up cattle and fixing fence! He bought me a Mountain Dew and Snickers on the way home to make up for it. LOL! Then there was the hay hauling trip from HELL!! Nothing could go right that day. I think we went to Keenesburg. To start the day off, we got a flat tire on the way there. When we got there the people were not there to help us load it, so we had to load half the load by ourselves before they showed up. Coming home we lost half the load and had to restack it on the side of the road! We were finally about 3 miles from the farm and we were laughing about what a bad day it was and we were so relieved we were almost home. Nothing else could go wrong at that point right?? WRONG!! Just about that time our hay trailer caught on fire!!! I was frantically searching for the fire extinguisher afraid the truck was going to blow up and grandpa was back there trying to save his hay! I will never forget that day as long as I live. When we weren' t off gallivanting around the state then Grandpa was hauling me to rodeo practice. My dad worked nights and I couldn' t pull a horse trailer by myself, so he would pick me up three times a week and haul me all the way to Parker to get my horse and then almost to Elizabeth for practice! He finally taught me how to pull that 6 horse trailer and when I went to college and joined the rodeo team he let me take our brand new 6 horse trailer with me a few times! He was my biggest fan. Even if I threw my rope in the dirt every time I left the box, he was at the other end of the arena waiting to tell me how good I did. Just about everything I need to know about life I learned from grandpa. He taught me you have to work hard and earn the things you want, you have to be tough no matter how hard things get, and most importantly he taught me how to enjoy a good bacon cheeseburger! I believe my grandpa is up in Heaven with all the nice green hay he can find, a Dodge truck, and his old horse Smokey. I know I will see him again someday. Until then I will miss him dearly. He will always be in my heart and my wonderful memories. Rest In Peace Grandpa. I love you! Sonja

Thatcher, John Henry Sr.
John Henry ' Jack'  Thatcher Sr. - Pueblo Chieftain - November 13, 1991 - Pioneer Family Member John Henry ' Jack' Thatcher Dies at 85 - John Henry `Jack' Thatcher' ¦ cattleman dead at 85. John Henry "Jack" Thatcher Sr., cattleman and member of one of Colorado's leading pioneer families, died Tuesday at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital. He was 85. Thatcher was the only living grandchild of John A. Thatcher who, with his brother Mahlon D. Thatcher, carved a business and financial empire in the state beginning in the 1860s. A third brother, Henry, served as a territorial judge and state Supreme Court justice. Jack Thatcher was born in Pueblo May 31, 1906, the son of John Henry and Ethel M. Thatcher. He attended prep school in Ohio. When his father died in 1928, Jack Thatcher took over operation of the 7IL ranch north of Boone. At one time the ranch included the land which is now the Pueblo Depot Activity and much of the 30,000 acres which comprise the Association of American Railroads' Transportation Test Center. John H. Thatcher Jr. operates and lives on the ranch today. Jack Thatcher also assumed his father's seat on the board of First National Bank of Pueblo in 1928. With the exception of a few years, he served as a director until he retired Jan. 1, 1986. The bank, chartered in 1872 by his grandfather and great-uncle, was the outgrowth of their mercantile business, Thatcher Bros. General Store, which contained the only safe in the area. The bank is now Colorado National Bank of Pueblo, a subsidiary of Colorado National Bankshares. "I've known Jack ever since I was a little boy. During all this time I found Jack to be insightful, gracious and humble," D. Dale Browning, vice chairman of Colorado National Bankshares and a native Puebloan, said Tuesday. "He was one of the few remaining members of a distinguished family that played a very prominent and significant role in the history of Colorado," Browning said. Jack Thatcher loved horse racing and was one of the first three members of Colorado's new racing commission appointed by then-Gov. W. Lee Knous in the late 1940s. He bred one of the region's most famous racing mares, My Lovely, who became the horse to beat at Centennial Turf Club near Littleton. She won the track's Columbine Handicap five years in a row and also raced successfully at Albuquerque. Jack Thatcher and Florence "Tory" Fox were married Nov. 17, 1934, after the couple met when she came to Pueblo from Wichita, Kan., to visit her brother, who owned Fox-Vliet Drug House. In 1968, Thatcher and his sisters, Alice Thatcher Jones and Lenore Thatcher Chamberlain, gave to the Pueblo Metropolitan Museum Association the John A. Thatcher mansion, now known as Rosemount Victorian House Museum. His sisters preceded him in death. Thatcher's organizational memberships reflected his ranching and horse interests and his civic involvement. He was a member of the Pueblo, Colorado and National Cattlemen's associations, a member of the governing board of the National Western Stock Show and a former member of the Pueblo and Beulah Valley Saddle Clubs. He was a charter life member of Rosemount Victorian House Museum, a director of Park National Bank, and belonged to the Pueblo Chamber of Commerce, Benevolent Protective Order of Elks Lodge No. 90, Pueblo Country Club and Ascension Episcopal Church. He is survived by his wife; three children, Kathlyn Vail, Patricia (James A.) Kenyon, and John H. (Beth) Thatcher Jr.; 10 grandchildren, one great-grandson and two nieces, Ethelyn (James) Potestio and Margaret Ann (John) Hyde. Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Ascension Episcopal Church with the Rt. Rev. Edward C. Turner officiating.

Thomas, Dusty Lorne
Dusty Lorne Thomas - Colorado Springs Gazette - April 29, 1999 - Body of Woman Identified as Pueblo Mother of Four - The partially clad female body found off Colorado Highway 24 near Cascade on Tuesday has been identified as Dusty Lorne Thomas, 29, of Pueblo. The mother of four young children, Thomas, also known as Dusty Stovall, was last seen March 30, said El Paso County Sheriff' s spokesman Lt. Ken Hilte. She was reported missing April 5. The body was found about 40 feet down an embankment by four teen-agers who were having a snowball fight. An identification was made using fingerprints. Though investigators are calling Thomas' death suspicious, the cause and time of her death will not be known until the county coroner completes an autopsy, possibly today, Hilte said. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff' s Office at 520-7155 or 520-7111. Colorado Springs Gazette - April 30, 1999 - Pueblo Woman a Homicide Victim - Body Found Near Cascade Reveals Bullet Wound - The death of a woman whose body was found near the town of Cascade this week was ruled a homicide Thursday. An autopsy revealed that Dusty Lorne Thomas, 29, of Pueblo, died of a single gunshot wound in the back, said El Paso County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Ken Hilte. Four teens who were having a snowball fight found the partially clothed, decomposed body Tuesday in a wooded area about 70 feet down an embankment off U.S. Highway 24. Identification was made by comparing fingerprints. Detectives would say little about how Thomas was killed because the investigation is ongoing, but they believe she was shot elsewhere and dumped where snow and a remote location would hide the crime indefinitely, said Lt. Joe Breister, who heads the major crimes unit. The cold weather made it difficult for investigators to determine exactly how long Thomas' body went undetected. Investigators returned to Pueblo on Thursday afternoon to question Thomas' acquaintances and family about the hours before she disappeared. "She has a real large family, and we've questioned everyone but don't have any promising leads," Breister said. Thomas was reported missing to Pueblo police April 5, but she was last seen March 30, Breister said. Lola Penny plastered pictures of her missing granddaughter on light poles and in windows of businesses in Pueblo looking for leads, Breister said. "It was really uncommon for her to go five or six hours without contact," Breister said. Thomas was the mother of four young children, ages 5, 8, 9 and 10. They lived with Penny, who is now raising the youngsters. Anyone with information is asked to call the El Paso County Sheriff's Office at 520-7155 or 520-7111.

Thomas, E. E.
E. E. Thomas - Rocky Mountain News - December 9, 1895 - Yi Ling' s Sufferings - They Came to an End at the County Hospital - After making his last will and testament and consigning his soul to the care and keeping of the Celestial gods, Yi Ling, who was fatally injured in a brutal assault made upon him in his shop in Pueblo, died a few minutes after 5 o' clock last evening in the county hospital. At the death bed were assembled several of Yi Ling' s countrymen. A brother of the dying man, bowed with grief and weeping bitterly, sobbed out prayers to the great and mysterious joss in whose country the troubled soul of Ling was about to arrive. For some hours before the death scene Yi Ling was unconscious and in peaceful ignorance of the tortured writhing of his body. He knew that his death was at hand and on Friday he made his will, bequeathing all his property, which consists of a little shop in the lower part of Pueblo, to his brother. The will was drawn up by the brother and presented to Yi for signature. The document is of parchment and by its provisions Yi Chung, the brother, will become possessed of the property' ¦ Story of the Assault - Yi Ling sustained his fatal injury on the night of November 13. He was in his shop taking his evening meal when two white men, Charles Oleson and E. E. Thomas, entered. Oleson demanded his washing and the Chinaman told him that he had not left it at the shop. The Chinaman argued in half intelligible English that he had never seen the washing referred to. A row resulted. During the progress of the scrimmage Ling was laid low. He tumbled to the floor bleeding from a great wound in his head. A heavy bowl, thrown at his head, had crushed his skull. The attention of officers was called to the disturbance and Oleson was locked up in the Pueblo jail. A stone was found in his pocket when he was searched at the jail, which indicates that he had prepared himself for trouble, and it was suspected that he was the party to the row who hurled the fatal missile. On the morning following the night of the fray Oleson was arraigned in the police court, fined 50 cents and costs for disturbance and released. In the testimony presented at court several witnesses swore that E. E. Thomas, the companion of Oleson, threw the bowl, and if this is the truth there will be no need for further investigation of the affair. Thomas was employed as a teamster. A week after the occurrence at the Chinaman' s shop Thomas met a sudden and awful death. He was unloading coal from a car when he slipped and was killed almost instantly by the fall.

Thomas, Richard Allen Jr.
Richard Allen Thomas Jr. - Pueblo Chieftain - January 2, 1999 - Three Die in Shooting Rampage - Gunman Kills Woman, Her Father, Wounds Her Mother, Takes Own Life - Three people were killed and one critically injured Friday night in an apparent murder-suicide at a Pueblo South Side home. Police said a man went to 416 S. Prairie, the home of a 22-year-old woman that he knew; authorities were working to determine the nature of their relationship. There, he shot her visiting parents - the father died; the mother underwent surgery and was in critical condition at presstime - before fatally shooting the young woman, then taking his own life. Authorities would not release the names of the four pending notification of next of kin. They reportedly were Puebloans. The parents - each shot in the chest - fled to their daughter's next-door neighbor's home at 412 S. Prairie, where they collapsed. Meanwhile, the woman, 22, blocked herself in a room and telephoned "911" to summon help. Police believe the gunman broke into the room, shot the young woman and then himself. When the Pueblo police SWAT team entered the house, they found the bodies of the gunman and his victim. They were pronounced dead at the scene. The young woman's parents were rushed to St. Mary-Corwin hospital. The father, believed to be in his 50s, was pronounced dead on arrival; his wife, 45, was in critical but stable condition after surgery, according to hospital spokesman Larry Holdren. First-aid crews said it appeared the wounds were from a large-caliber handgun. Police were busy investigating and unavailable for much comment late Friday. Police Chief Jim Billings, who was at the scene, described the shootings as "a murder-suicide." He said his officers were working to determine the exact motive. Also late Friday, police were investigating reports that the young woman had a daughter who was not at the home when the shooting took place. The shooting occurred in one of Pueblo's older but quiet neighborhoods, directly across the streets from Washington Day Care Center (formerly Jefferson Elementary School). Nearby neighbors said they heard a single gunshot about 6:20 p.m. but when they went outside, the area was quiet. Not long after, police and rescue crews arrived at the scene. The SWAT team - unaware the man already had shot the young woman and himself - waited about 30 minutes before entering the house. Friday's murders came exactly three weeks after the murders of two other Puebloans. On Dec. 11, Julie Ann Padilla, 15, and Albert DeHerrera, 26, were found beaten to death in their respective homes. Police have said the killings were not related. There have been no arrests made in either case. Pueblo Chieftain - January 3, 1999 - Police ID Victims, Detail Shootings - Pueblo police on Saturday released the identities of the victims of the Friday night shooting rampage that left three people dead and a woman clinging to life. Police also identified the man they believe shot the victims before killing himself at the South Side home of his former girlfriend. Shawna Marie Thomas, 22, of 416 S. Prairie Ave., and her father, Richard Allen Thomas, 44, of 7 Purdue, both died Friday night. Ms. Thomas' stepmother, Alicia M. Walters, 45, also of 7 Purdue, was shot in the chest and underwent emergency surgery late Friday night at St. Mary-Corwin hospital. She was listed in critical but stable condition Saturday night, according to a hospital spokesman. Thomas Alan Courtney, 31, of 46 Briarwood Circle, was pronounced dead Friday night after shooting the three family members and then turning the .40-caliber pistol on himself. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said autopsies performed Saturday on Thomas, Ms. Thomas and Courtney confirmed that they died from gunshot wounds. Thomas died from a shot to the chest while Ms. Thomas and Courtney each died from a single gunshot wound to the head. Kramer said that results of toxicology tests, which would determine whether drugs or alcohol were in the systems of any of the deceased, will not be available until midweek. Police Sgt. Kim Wittrup said Thomas and Walters had gone to Ms. Thomas' home Friday evening to help her install electronic equipment she had received for Christmas when Courtney came to the house he had once shared with Ms. Thomas. Wittrup said it was only 4-6 weeks ago that Courtney had moved out of the house at 416 S. Prairie for unknown reasons. He said neighbors did not know if the two were still seeing each other. Sources said Courtney got off work at the Marriott Hotel, where he worked as a waiter, at about 5 p.m. Friday and went home before going to Ms. Thomas' home. At about 6:15 p.m., Courtney arrived at the house and knocked on the side kitchen door, located on the north side of the home. The elder Thomas answered the door and immediately was shot in the chest by Courtney. He then shot Walters in the chest before he entered the home. Thomas and Walters were able to run to a next-door neighbor's home, where they collapsed on the front yard, according to Wittrup. The residents at 412 S. Prairie took the two victims into their home until rescue personnel arrived. Thomas died from his injuries shortly after he arrived at St. Mary-Corwin hospital. Hearing the shots, Ms. Thomas ran to the bathroom and locked herself inside in an attempt to escape from Courtney, Wittrup said. While inside the bathroom, Ms. Thomas was able to call police on a cordless phone and tell dispatchers that somebody in her home had been shot. But before police could respond, Courtney shot at the doorknob and was able to get inside the bathroom. Police believe he then confronted Ms. Thomas and shot her once in the head. Shortly after that, he shot himself in the head. When police arrived at the home, which is located across the street from Washington Day Care Center (the former Jefferson Elementary School), they were told by neighbors that the gunman was still inside the house at 416 S. Prairie and that Ms. Thomas was possibly being held as a hostage. There also was concern for the welfare of Ms. Thomas' 3-year-old son, Michael Todd Rosendale. Initial reports that Ms. Thomas had a young daughter were incorrect. Wittrup said police later learned the boy was staying with his father in Denver. Police SWAT team members were called and they, along with several uniformed officers, surrounded the house. After breaking into the home, police found the bodies of Courtney and Ms. Thomas in the bathroom. They both were pronounced dead at the scene. Wittrup said a review of police records indicated that there had not been any previous incidents of domestic violence involving Courtney and Ms. Thomas. He said Courtney had previous brushes with the law, but would not say what those incidents were. "They were not domestic violence-related," he said. Records at the Pueblo County Sheriff's Department indicate that Courtney had been arrested and booked into county jail five times since 1991. In 1991, he was arrested for vehicular assault. His most recent arrest was in November 1997 for first-degree criminal trespass, a felony. The other three arrests were for undisclosed traffic-related violations. As court records are unavailable on weekends, it was not possible to determine if Courtney actually was charged in any of the five arrests. And police refused to release details of any of the incidents or Courtney's status with the courts at the time of his death. Pueblo Chieftain - January 3, 1999 - Victims Well-Known in Pueblo - Richard Thomas Jr. was making a new life for himself at the time of his death, relatives say. Thomas and his daughter, Shawna, were shot to death Friday night by Shawna's former boyfriend, Thomas Courtney. Thomas' wife, Alicia Walters, also was shot. She was in critical but stable condition Saturday night at St. Mary-Corwin hospital. Thomas, 44, who had always loved working with computers, graduated from Denver Technical College three months ago with a degree in computer science. He then went to work for Gateway Computer Corp. in Colorado Springs, where he was employed as a computer hardware engineer, commuting from his Pueblo home. The night he was killed, Thomas had gone to his daughter's home at 416 S. Prairie to help her install new home audio equipment she'd received for Christmas. Alicia Walters, 45, Rick's wife, was a 1971 graduate of Pueblo's East High School. She owned and operated a medical transcription service. Shawna Thomas was the great-granddaughter of Helen and the late Tony Ianne, patriarch of several Pueblo restaurants. A 1995 graduate of Central High School, Shawna had worked at Rosario's, one of the family's restaurants. At the time of her death, she was employed by Pueblo Community Health Centers. Her father also worked for many years at Ianne's Pizzeria on Northern Avenue, a still-successful Pueblo fixture for more than 50 years. In a 1989 Chieftain article about the Ianne family, Rick Thomas noted how he had worked at the pizzeria since grade school: "My grandpa (Tony Ianne) put me to work here when I was 12 years old, putting stickers on the cellophane we used to wrap the pizzas we sold in the stores. He paid me 50 cents an hour and I thought I was in the chips. I've been here pretty much every since." Michael Todd Rosendale, Shawna's 3-year-old son, was with his father, Michael Rosendale of Denver, at the time of the slayings. Thomas "Tom" Alan Courtney, 31, had recently started working as a waiter at the Marriott Hotel, and previously had worked at Rosario's and Ianne's Whiskey Ridge, another family restaurant. Marriott officials declined Saturday to comment on his work record or say how long he had been employed there. Courtney graduated in 1986 from South High School and had attended the University of Southern Colorado. He is survived by his mother, Frances Courtney, a longtime and very popular starter-ranger at the Pueblo City Park Golf Course; and two brothers. George McCarthy Funeral Home is handling arrangements for all three victims. Pueblo Chieftain - January 7, 1999 - Killer of 2 Drunk at Time of Murders - The gunman in the New Year's Day double homicide/suicide was extremely intoxicated at the time of the shootings, Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said Wednesday. Kramer said Thomas Courtney, 31, had more than three times the amount of alcohol in his system than the level at which state law considers a person to be under the influence. "He had an elevated blood alcohol content level," Kramer said. The coroner said the level of alcohol in Courtney's system exceeded .3 percent; .1 percent is considered under the influence. Courtney went on a shooting rampage Jan. 1 at the home of his former girlfriend, Shawna Marie Thomas, 22, of 416 S. Prairie. Ms. Thomas and her father, Richard Allen Thomas, 44, were shot by Courtney and died at the scene. Thomas' wife, Alicia M. Walters, 45, also was shot in the chest, but survived and is being treated at St. Mary-Corwin Hospital. Funeral services for the father and daughter victims were held Wednesday. Courtney was buried on Tuesday. Kramer said toxicology tests on the shooting victims were not performed because there was no indication that drugs or alcohol contributed to their deaths.

Thomas, Shawna Marie
Shawna Marie Thomas - Pueblo Chieftain - January 2, 1999 - Three Die in Shooting Rampage - Gunman Kills Woman, Her Father, Wounds Her Mother, Takes Own Life - Three people were killed and one critically injured Friday night in an apparent murder-suicide at a Pueblo South Side home. Police said a man went to 416 S. Prairie, the home of a 22-year-old woman that he knew; authorities were working to determine the nature of their relationship. There, he shot her visiting parents - the father died; the mother underwent surgery and was in critical condition at presstime - before fatally shooting the young woman, then taking his own life. Authorities would not release the names of the four pending notification of next of kin. They reportedly were Puebloans. The parents - each shot in the chest - fled to their daughter's next-door neighbor's home at 412 S. Prairie, where they collapsed. Meanwhile, the woman, 22, blocked herself in a room and telephoned "911" to summon help. Police believe the gunman broke into the room, shot the young woman and then himself. When the Pueblo police SWAT team entered the house, they found the bodies of the gunman and his victim. They were pronounced dead at the scene. The young woman's parents were rushed to St. Mary-Corwin hospital. The father, believed to be in his 50s, was pronounced dead on arrival; his wife, 45, was in critical but stable condition after surgery, according to hospital spokesman Larry Holdren. First-aid crews said it appeared the wounds were from a large-caliber handgun. Police were busy investigating and unavailable for much comment late Friday. Police Chief Jim Billings, who was at the scene, described the shootings as "a murder-suicide." He said his officers were working to determine the exact motive. Also late Friday, police were investigating reports that the young woman had a daughter who was not at the home when the shooting took place. The shooting occurred in one of Pueblo's older but quiet neighborhoods, directly across the streets from Washington Day Care Center (formerly Jefferson Elementary School). Nearby neighbors said they heard a single gunshot about 6:20 p.m. but when they went outside, the area was quiet. Not long after, police and rescue crews arrived at the scene. The SWAT team - unaware the man already had shot the young woman and himself - waited about 30 minutes before entering the house. Friday's murders came exactly three weeks after the murders of two other Puebloans. On Dec. 11, Julie Ann Padilla, 15, and Albert DeHerrera, 26, were found beaten to death in their respective homes. Police have said the killings were not related. There have been no arrests made in either case. Pueblo Chieftain - January 3, 1999 - Police ID Victims, Detail Shootings - Pueblo police on Saturday released the identities of the victims of the Friday night shooting rampage that left three people dead and a woman clinging to life. Police also identified the man they believe shot the victims before killing himself at the South Side home of his former girlfriend. Shawna Marie Thomas, 22, of 416 S. Prairie Ave., and her father, Richard Allen Thomas, 44, of 7 Purdue, both died Friday night. Ms. Thomas' stepmother, Alicia M. Walters, 45, also of 7 Purdue, was shot in the chest and underwent emergency surgery late Friday night at St. Mary-Corwin hospital. She was listed in critical but stable condition Saturday night, according to a hospital spokesman. Thomas Alan Courtney, 31, of 46 Briarwood Circle, was pronounced dead Friday night after shooting the three family members and then turning the .40-caliber pistol on himself. Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said autopsies performed Saturday on Thomas, Ms. Thomas and Courtney confirmed that they died from gunshot wounds. Thomas died from a shot to the chest while Ms. Thomas and Courtney each died from a single gunshot wound to the head. Kramer said that results of toxicology tests, which would determine whether drugs or alcohol were in the systems of any of the deceased, will not be available until midweek. Police Sgt. Kim Wittrup said Thomas and Walters had gone to Ms. Thomas' home Friday evening to help her install electronic equipment she had received for Christmas when Courtney came to the house he had once shared with Ms. Thomas. Wittrup said it was only 4-6 weeks ago that Courtney had moved out of the house at 416 S. Prairie for unknown reasons. He said neighbors did not know if the two were still seeing each other. Sources said Courtney got off work at the Marriott Hotel, where he worked as a waiter, at about 5 p.m. Friday and went home before going to Ms. Thomas' home. At about 6:15 p.m., Courtney arrived at the house and knocked on the side kitchen door, located on the north side of the home. The elder Thomas answered the door and immediately was shot in the chest by Courtney. He then shot Walters in the chest before he entered the home. Thomas and Walters were able to run to a next-door neighbor's home, where they collapsed on the front yard, according to Wittrup. The residents at 412 S. Prairie took the two victims into their home until rescue personnel arrived. Thomas died from his injuries shortly after he arrived at St. Mary-Corwin hospital. Hearing the shots, Ms. Thomas ran to the bathroom and locked herself inside in an attempt to escape from Courtney, Wittrup said. While inside the bathroom, Ms. Thomas was able to call police on a cordless phone and tell dispatchers that somebody in her home had been shot. But before police could respond, Courtney shot at the doorknob and was able to get inside the bathroom. Police believe he then confronted Ms. Thomas and shot her once in the head. Shortly after that, he shot himself in the head. When police arrived at the home, which is located across the street from Washington Day Care Center (the former Jefferson Elementary School), they were told by neighbors that the gunman was still inside the house at 416 S. Prairie and that Ms. Thomas was possibly being held as a hostage. There also was concern for the welfare of Ms. Thomas' 3-year-old son, Michael Todd Rosendale. Initial reports that Ms. Thomas had a young daughter were incorrect. Wittrup said police later learned the boy was staying with his father in Denver.

Thombs, Louisa
Louisa Thombs - Pueblo Indicator - September 28, 1929 - A Real Pioneer Passes On - Mrs. Louisa Thombs, 77, widow of Dr. P.R. Thombs, for many years superintendent of the state asylum, passed away at her Denver home last Wednesday. Mrs. Thombs came from St. Joseph, Mo., to Colorado in a covered wagon in 1864, with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Shaw. Her father conducted a wagon train from St. Joe to Central City. Afterwards he sold out and established a ranch in the southern part of Pueblo county.

Thombs, Pembroke B. (Dr.)
Pembroke B. Thombs - Pueblo Chieftain - August 2, 1992 - Dr. Pembroke B. Thombs played prominent role in early Pueblo - Pueblo was a village of a few hundred people when a Civil War veteran, Dr. Pembroke B. Thombs, chose to join those who had come here to achieve fame and fortune. Thombs' family was of English origin who had been early settlers in Virginia. After graduation from Waterville College in 1859, he entered Rush Medical College in Chicago, from which he graduated in 1862. Service in the Civil War followed immediately. He was taken prisoner while tending wounded in the field at Chickamauga and later rejoined the Union Army in a prisoner exchange. Thombs' adventures as a physician and operator of a drug store were recorded in the Chieftain. In August 1869, the soda fountain in his drug store blew up. In May 1872, Thombs and Bob Leonard gained the sole right to sell the patented metallic safety lamp, which put out a bright light with half the kerosene. He also was an inventor of sorts. The Chieftain reported in 1872 that he had developed fly paper, which was covered with treacle (sugar), glue, and nitroglycerine. The flies were attracted to the paper by the sugar and stuck to the glue. If they tried to get away the nitroglycerine exploded. Thombs also prepared bodies of people who were shipped back home for burial. Thombs' greatest challenge came in 1879, when he was appointed superintendent of the state insane asylum, established by the Legislature earlier in the year. The institution, located at the west end of 11th Street, was opened in the three-story residence that had been the home of George M. Chilcott. There were 12 patients. Thombs was associated with the institution for 20 years, caring for patients while working with the commissioners who were appointed to manage the institution. News articles in the Chieftain indicate a perpetual reluctance by the Legislature to provide adequate funding. In 1899, a legislative committee looked into charges of mismanagement at the institution. Nearly every complaint could be laid to inadequate staffing and under funding. These findings hardly could have been a surprise to the superintendent. The conclusion was to acquit Thombs and commend him for the work he had done. But Thombs was tired of the constant hassle and resigned to enter private practice. The Chieftain in his obituary noted that he was a fine physician but was a poor collector - many of his patients never paid their bills. In 1870, Thombs married Louise Shaw, whose father had settled on the Greenhorn several years previously. He became a Mason at Yarmouth, Me., and was a charter member of Pueblo Chapter 17, AF&AM. Later, he joined the Elks Lodge. He also had been president of the Colorado Medical Society. Thombs died May 1, 1902, from a short illness at the age of 63.

Pueblo Indicator - November 22, 1930 - Two Held for Murder - Steel Worker' s Assailants Arrested and Will Be Tried in December - Murder charges will be filed by the district attorney' s office next Monday against Roy Overstreet and Henry Bibbs in the case of Hugh Thompson, 23-year-old steel worker, who was shot and killed by holdups opposite Corwin Hospital the night of November 13 about 7:30 o' clock. Both men under arrest are colored and each accuses the other of being the one who did the shooting. Thompson grappled with the man with the gun and was shot three times, he dying at Corwin Hospital at 6:30 the following morning. He identified Overstreet as his assailant. However, at the coroner' s inquest Overstreet declared it was Bibbs who did the shooting while he sat in the auto. He called attention to the similarity of their appearance in order to show that the victim could have been mistaken. Chief of Police Grady got busy on the case before it grew cold and soon had the two men under arrest. District Attorney Phelps is not making public just what his course will be except to say that murder charges will be lodged against both Overstreet and Bibbs.

Tibbets, William F.
William F. Tibbets - Denver Evening Post - January 4, 1896 - His Career Ended - Captain Tibbitts Dies in the State Insane Asylum - He Was One of the Oldest Railroad Men in the Country and Was Well Known in This City - Some Months Ago He Lost His Health and Decline Then Began - Pueblo, Colo., Jan. 4 - Captain J. H. Tibbitts, formerly general traveling passenger agent for the Denver & Rio Grande and one of the pioneer railroading men of the West, died in the state insane asylum here last night. The death of the pioneer traveling passenger agent was received at the city railroad offices this morning with a sincere regret. His death failed to cause surprise, as those who were acquainted with the captain' s last days premised that the end of an active life was nearing its close. In talking of the captain when he was a genial fixture to the city ticket office of the Denver & Rio Grande, Mr. Firth of the Rock Island said this morning: ' The only epitaph you can write for the captain is that he was a good old boy in the true sense of the word. He was one of the pioneer traveling men, and many a hearty laugh we had with Tibbitts in the olden days. I regret sincerely his end. One of the lights of Western railroading goes out!'  The captain' s life was checkered and full of incident. At the time of his death he was 67 years old, gray haired and patriarchal in appearance. He was born in Michigan when it was as wild as Colorado. He was the son of one of the pioneers. His early life was passed in the region of the great lakes, and after grammar and geography had been thrown aside, the steamers plying up and down the St. Lawrence and the immense sheets of inland water acted as a powerful inducement to the adventurous youth, and while still a young man he took his place by the wheel box, becoming in time a lake captain, from whence he acquired his title. He followed the lakes until the early fifties, when he entered a railroad office and steadily worked his way to the top. At the time he joined the D. & R. G. thirteen years ago, he smilingly boasted that he was the oldest railroad man in the country, and strange to say, his claim was never disputed. He was a pioneer of Colorado, and could tell many tales of the rough early days. Every one of prominence knew the captain, and it would be safe to say his name was a by-word in many homes. His circle of acquaintances was a surprise, so large was it, and by his uniformly courteous and urbane manner he held an acquaintance as a life-long friend. He was a Mason of high degree, and has held many prominent offices. But in September last his strange actions when traveling from place to place in the line of his duty began to attract attention. Alternately fierce and gentle, he seemed no longer master of his mind. Valuable papers and memoranda would be frequently forgotten and left in the train. Correspondence accumulated on his desk, and a careless air pervaded the atmosphere around the aged traveling passenger agent. The officials of the road held an investigation, the outcome of which was a surprise to hundreds of the Captain' s friends. He was said to be insane. Taken to the county hospital he became violent, and a few days later Judge Steele of the county court adjudged him insane, and he was conveyed to the state insane asylum at Pueblo, where he remained until his death. According to a message received from the asylum at Pueblo the physicians pronounced Captain Tibbitts' death to have been due to cerebral apoplexy. For the past two days he was unconscious most of the time, so that his end was peaceful. The hospital attendants were alone present at his bedside. Two days before his death he had been visited by his niece, who at that time realized that the end was not far off, and could be expected at any moment. As the lids fluttered in death and the rigid form grew cold there passed the soul of a generous, loving nature, with faults, it is true, but faults of the head rather than the heart. The death of old Captain Tibbitts will be deplored by everyone who knew him in his joyous life. Rocky Mountain News - January 5, 1896 - W. F. Tibbits Dead - The End Came in the Pueblo Insane Asylum - The death of Captain W. F. Tibbits, for many years general traveling passenger agent of the Denver and Rio Grande road, was announced from the Pueblo insane asylum yesterday. The venerable pioneer in railroading had passed his sixty-seventh milestone before the reaper called him away. Several months ago he was placed in the asylum, his mind having shown evidences of decay and at times his disease taking a dangerous form. The announcement last September that Captain Tibbits had been consigned to the insane asylum was a shock to a large circle of friends and acquaintances whom the genial passenger agent had gained during an experience of thirteen years on the Rio Grande road. Captain Tibbits was one of the oldest railroad men in the United States and ranked with Colonel May of the Pennsylvania line as a veteran in the service. He was born in Michigan and passed his early manhood upon the lakes, rising to the position of captain before he decided to abandon the dangerous life for a place in the passenger service of one of the Eastern lines. He rose through the different grades in the passenger department and early in the ' 80s came to Colorado to accept a position with the Denver and Rio Grande. He traveled extensively over the West and by his kindly manners and obliging disposition won the esteem of a great circle of acquaintances.

Tiffany, Alva
Alva Tiffany - Daily Rocky Mountain News - July 1, 1879 - A Cow-Boy' s Carouse - Two Men Killed in a Tragic Encounter at Pueblo - The town of Pueblo, which has figured rather prominently in the present railroad war, was the scene yesterday of an unfortunate encounter, resulting in the death of two men well known throughout Pueblo and the country adjoining. The tragedy was the result of a cow-boy' s carouse, one of the victims at least being in a state of intoxication when he met his end. The affray occurred yesterday morning, about 11 o' clock - the parties to the affair being a young ranchman named John Baxter, and the other a police officer named Alva Tiffany. Baxter was the aggressor, the officer, from all accounts, meeting his death in an attempt to enforce the laws and compel Baxter to be quiet. The News' informant, who was an eye-witness to the occurrence, states that during the morning Baxter came into town with four or five of his comrades. The crowd had just come off from a long cattle drive and were disposed to make a day of it in the southern metropolis. They hitched their horses in front of the saloon of John Scheuer in North Pueblo, and went in to get a drink. The result was that the party became all more or less intoxicated, Baxter especially so. His conduct was so boisterous as to attract attention, and it was in an effort to quiet him that Tiffany met his death. When the crowd got more than unusually noisy in their conduct, Tiffany appeared on the scene, and, addressing Baxter, stated that he would have ' to tone himself down.'  Baxter replied with a yell, and the policeman seeing that the man was armed, approached and asked him for his revolver, it being the impression of those who saw the encounter, that the request was made more for the purpose of keeping the man from doing any harm than anything else. In any event Baxter declined to turn the weapon over, and addressing the policeman said, ' You d' ”n s' ”n of a b' ”h, if you want it, come and take it.'  Before the officer had started for him, Baxter fired. The ball fortunately flew wide of its mark. Tiffany was about to turn - whether to attempt to make the arrest or not is not known. In any event another bullet was sent flying at him from the drunken man' s weapon. At this Tiffany drew his own weapon and shot at Baxter, the two reports appearing to be almost simultaneous. Both men were hit. The ball from Baxter' s revolver struck Tiffany in the left shoulder blade, passing through the lungs and lodging beneath the skin under the right nipple. Tiffany, after receiving the wound, fell like a log and died in five minutes. Baxter fell, too, and was carried to a neighboring drug store, where his injuries were pronounced fatal. The ball from the policeman' s revolver had entered his stomach and in half an hour he was a corpse. The affray created the greatest excitement in Pueblo, where both parties were well known. The scene of the encounter was soon surrounded by a large crowd of people, who shuddered as they gazed on the bodies of the two men, both young and both so full of life and vigor only a few moments before. The coroner of the county was soon after summoned, and impaneled a jury to inquire into the facts. These were very plain and substantially as The News has given them above. A Description of the Victims - Baxter was about twenty-eight years old, and was well known among the cattle men in southern Colorado. He was a partner of James Moore, and the two had quite a bunch of cattle. Baxter ordinarily was a very quiet fellow, but drink seemed to transform him into a fury and he was noted about Pueblo for a fashion he had of galloping at a reckless speed through the streets, and insisting on entering a saloon on horseback. Tiffany was a very estimable young man, who arrived at Pueblo some months ago from Nebraska. He secured an appointment on the police force and was regarded as a steady, sober officer. The tragic affair is very much regretted everywhere in Pueblo, and the particulars of the deadly encounter were discussed in all circles last evening.

Tihonovich, Daniel
Daniel Tihonovich - Pueblo Chieftain - August 29, 2012 - Daniel Tihonovich, 77, passed away Aug. 28, 2012. Arrangements pending. Pueblo Chieftain - August 30, 2012 - Tihonovich remembered as ' old school' sheriff - He played a key role in the building of a new county jail - When Dan Tihonovich became Pueblo County sheriff in 1974, the county jail was a ' dungeon'  in the basement of the judicial building. When he left office in 1986, the county had a new, 190-bed detention center and Tihonovich was part of the team that got it built. ' Dan was a character, an old-school sheriff. But he worked hard to give the community a modern detention center and ran it well,'  offered former District Attorney Gus Sandstrom after hearing that Tihonovich, 77, had died on Tuesday at a local hospital. Tihonovich had been treated for lung cancer for several years. The funeral is being arranged through Angelus Chapel and will be Tuesday at 1 p.m. at Praise Assembly of God, 2000 Troy Ave. Burial will be in Roselawn Cemetery. ' In those days, the sheriff' s department was more like one big family,'  said nephew Doug Tihonovich, who worked for the sheriff' s department for a decade while his uncle ran it. ' But I know Uncle Dan took the job very seriously. He was proud to have been elected several times (1974, 1978 and 1982) by the community.'  Tihonovich was a Pueblo native and a 1954 graduate of Central High School. He was married to his widow, Judith, for 54 years. An Army veteran, he' d worked at several different jobs before joining Sheriff Joe Torres' department in the early 1970s. Being sheriff was a colorful job in those years. Torres was convicted on theft and conspiracy charges in 1974 and Tihonovich won the job. By 1984, however, he was the subject of a Pueblo Chieftain investigation into his office, which included reporting on allegations of property missing from the evidence room. Based on The Chieftain' s investigation, Tihonovich was indicted by the Pueblo grand jury, but the indictments later were dropped. After leaving office, Tihonovich bought the Kozy Korner Tavern and ran it until his death. Sheriff Kirk Taylor recalled that Tihonovich also was elected president of the County Sheriffs of Colorado during his tenure. Along with his widow, Tihonovich is survived by: a son, Daniel Kevin Tihonovich, of Pueblo; two grandsons and a great-grandson; a brother, Walter Tihonovich, of Pueblo; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Tooke, Walter Yerby
Walter Yerby Tooke - Pueblo Chieftain - December 15, 2011 - Walter Yerby Tooke passed away Dec. 12, 2011, in Pueblo. He was born on June 4, 1919, in Mexia, Texas, to Myrtle Alma Tooke and Douglas Marvin Tooke and spent his childhood in Texas, moving to Pueblo at age 17. Walter graduated from Centennial High School followed by a year at Pueblo Junior College in 1940, before transferring to Texas Tech in 1941. He majored in mechanical engineering. Like many patriotic young men of his generation though, he left before completing his education to serve in the Army Air Force during World War II. Walter went through training as an intelligence officer and then entered aviation training followed by further training as a P-38 photo reconnaissance pilot in the 13th squadron of the 8th Air Force. As this brave group helped to map out the battlefield, they also wrote the manual for war-time photo aviation, losing 17 of 21 pilots in this squadron. Walter and the other three survivors then pushed forward to train incoming pilots from their own experience, saving many lives and aircraft by sharing their hard-earned wisdom. Walter was recalled to extended active duty in 1951 as an intelligence officer and was assigned to intelligence service in 1952 at Air Defense Command, Ent Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. He retired as a lieutenant colonel from the Air Force Reserves in 1979 with 37 years of service, 11 of which were active and 26 in the reserve forces. Walter received numerous decorations and citations. Following his military service, Walter began his career as a combustion engineer at the CF&I in Pueblo where he worked until he retired in 1984. Walter was a member of Pueblo' s Masonic Lodge No. 17 for 60 years attaining the level of 32nd degree mason. He also was a member of the Al Kaly Shriners and drove the Kaliope in many parades. He was a member of St. Paul United Methodist Church for 70 years and taught Sunday School for about 40 years. In later years, Walter loved to garden and especially was proud of his roses. He also built and flew beautifully constructed remote control model airplanes as a hobby and always was quick to visit sick or bereaved friends. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Martha Dell Tooke. Walter is survived by his twin daughters, Katherine Joan (Tom) Harris and Kathleen June (Don) Mullins; along with grandchildren, Roe Harris, Olen Harris, Heather Crislip and Aaron Mullins. He also has four beautiful great-grandchildren, Todd Harris, Alexi Harris, Grace Crislip and Renna Crislip. We would like to give special thanks to the staff at the Chateau at Sharmar who have been loving and kind as well as professional in his care in the past several years, and most recently to Frontier Hospice. Walter was a good and faithful servant, a hero in service and a friend to many. He will be missed.

Torgler, Roderick Alan
Roderick Alan Torgler - Pueblo Chieftain - November 8, 2010 - Roderick Alan Torgler, beloved husband, father, brother, neighbor and friend, died Nov. 2, 2010, after a long battle with leukemia. He was 64. Rod was born on July 26, 1946, in La Junta, Colo., to George and Pearl Torgler. He was the youngest of four children. During his childhood in Ordway, Colo., he was an avid Boy Scout, attending jamborees in Colorado Springs and Valley Forge, Pa. At Crowley County High School he was active in Future Farmers of America and was a member of the football and wrestling teams. After graduating in 1964, he attended Southern Colorado State College, where he earned a degree in auto mechanics. On June 11, 1966, he married Marianne Spitzer in Pueblo. Their marriage would last 44 years, until his death, and they would have four daughters, Rochell, Renee, Kathryn and Christine. Also in 1966, Rod began his four-decade career as a railroad engineer, driving trains for American Refrigeration Transportation, Missouri Pacific, Rio Grande and Union Pacific. Rod considered his railroad friends throughout Colorado and Kansas his family away from home. In 1968, Rod moved his family from Pueblo to Ordway, where he purchased and remodeled the house on the Pantle farm. For the next 29 years, he commuted the 50 miles to Pueblo for his railroad job while also raising livestock on the farm, including cattle, pigs and chickens. Friends and neighbors knew Rod as a mechanical genius who could build or repair anything. He owned several antique cars and was fond of taking visitors for rides in his Model T Ford. He was known for his hospitality, his generosity, his work ethic, and his honesty and directness. He had an aversion to debt, but he enjoyed gambling, and he and Marianne often vacationed in Las Vegas. He also was an avid fisherman who spent many an hour casting his line at Lake Henry near the farm, as well as one week every year trolling on his boat at Blue Mesa in Gunnison. He was active in community organizations, including the Rocky Ford Elks Club, Ordway Lions, Ordway Jaycees and Rocky Ford Golf Club. Rod became a grandfather in 1991, with the birth of Rochell's daughter, Paige Renee, to whom he taught fishing and other life lessons. In 1997, the railroad transferred Rod to Denver. For the next nine years, he and Marianne lived in Northglenn, where he again amazed his neighbors with his mechanical know-how and his helpfulness. After 40 years of driving trains, Rod retired from the railroad in 2006, and he and Marianne moved back to the farm in Ordway. For the couple, retirement meant days spent remodeling the house, buying items at auctions to fix up and resell, traveling throughout the Southwest, doing handyman chores for friends and neighbors, working on the antique cars, visiting his mother every day at the Crowley County Nursing Center, and of course, fishing. Sadly, Rod's enjoyment of his leisure was short-lived, but he confronted his final illness with his usual combination of fortitude, drive, determination, practicality and good humor. His many friends and relatives will miss his good and loving heart. Please send your kind thoughts to: wife, Marianne; daughters, Rochell, Renee and Kathryn; granddaughter, Paige; sons-in-law, Scott, Gary and Jon; brother, Shannon; siblings-in-law, Jeannie and Guy.

Torres, Amparo V.
Amparo V. Torres - The Chronicle-News - September 17, 2009 - In memory of our beautiful wife, mother and grandmother, Amparo Villarreal de Torres, who left her loving family on Saturday, September 12, 2009, at 80 years old. She was born on the 8th of July, 1929, in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico to Luis Villarreal and Berta Austre Perez. Preceding her in death are parents, Luis Sr. and Berta Villarreal; brother, Luis Villarreal Jr.; sister Maria de los Angeles Villarreal de Castro and baby sister Bertita Villarreal. Amparo is survived by her husband, Dr. Eugene Luis Torres, DVM; daughter, Lorraine Amparo (David Robert) Horowitz of Sacramento, Calif., and their daughter, Alexis Antoinette Horowitz of Vista, Calif.; son, Hector Rene Torres and his children, Khyndra Anais Torres and Jesse Austin Torres of Spokane and Newport, Wash. Respectively; son Major Brenndan Patrick Torres (Maria Rosario (Charo) Orta) of Highlands Park, Colo.; their children, Cassandra Rosario, Vanessa Addie Rachel, Anastasia Marisol, Aaron Eugene Luis Torres; sister, Ana Lara Villarreal de Torres of Model; brother, Dr. Gustavo Adolfo Villarreal, D.D.S. of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico; brothers-in-law, Richard Francis Torres, of Priest River, Idaho, David Ronald Torres, Model, Carlos Castro of Austin, Texas. Amparito was born in 1929, in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico, but she spent much of her childhood in a very old, but small village named Guerro, in Coahuila, Mexico. Her youthful years were spent in a town named Piedras Negras, located in Coahuila, Mexico. The Rio Grande river is the border between Mexico and America, with Eagle Pass Texas on the American side. Her family survived two devastating floods of the Rio Grande, also known as El Rio Bravo. The family lost their home and all of their treasured belongings, but thankfully the family members were all safe. In 1955, Amparo met a young Air Force Sgt. Eugene Torres while she was visiting her sister, Maria de los Angeles, in Bryan, Texas. Gene was stationed at Bryon Air Force Jet Fighter Training Command in Bryan at the time. Even though she spoke hardly any English and he spoke even less Spanish, they were married on the 21st of January, 1956. They were married in the Mexican Presbyterian Church in Piedras Negras. In the intervening years, Amparo gave birth and reared three children, Lorraine (b. 1956), Hector (b. 1957) and Brenndan (b. 1966), who are proud to share some of her history at this time. Amparo was a loving, and nurturing wife, mother, grandmother, and aunt. She helped her husband through eight years of Veterinary School. Because of her good education in Mexican schools and in spite of the fact that she spoke very little English, she was hired to a prestigious job as a lab technician in the Bacteriology Department at the College of Veterinary Medicine at the Colorado State University, in Fort Collins. Eventually, she learned good English, basically on her own, but she spoke with a gentle, delightful Spanish accent and became head of her department. Amparo was a talented artist. She painted mostly landscapes and still life in oils and pastels. Family and friends eagerly waited for Amparo to finish one of her "Masterpiece paintings." When relatives. or close friends. admired a painting, she often presented them with that painting, or a similar one as a gift. She had the desire and the imagination to become a talented fashion designer. Sadly she was unable to fulfill that dream, because of her devotion to raise her family, which always came first. Amparo's passion for designing women's fashions never left her. A member of the family is always delighted when they find one of her drawings on a scrap of paper tucked away in a book or some other unlikely place. She also loved knitting beautiful baby sweaters and always had one to give to the new baby of a friend, or a family member. Amparo loved books, both English and Spanish, and especially loved history of people and places, art, classics, and even a good mystery. She wrote beautiful poems in Spanish that often brought tears to those who could read them. As a young teenager, during the 1940s, and 1950s, she grew to love and admire the magic that great actors brought to the silver screen. She continued to revel in a great story whether the movie was American of foreign made. Amparo loved to travel. One of her most memorable trips was to Europe with her husband. They visited England, Scotland, Germany, France, Italy, Vienna, and the Principality of Monaco. She especially loved traveling by automobile with her family, through her beloved Mexico. She was also fortunate to take family trips throughout most of the United States. As a gracious hostess, she always set an excellent and elegant table, even if she set it just for her husband and herself. She always insisted that the family dressed up for special dinner occasions, whether at home or going out. This custom is still followed by her children, which will be passed on to their children. Her greatest delights were visits with her children and grandchildren, whom she lavished with love and spoiled them shamelessly. Amparo's profound generosity, her sense of humor, her loving spirit and spirituality will always be kept dear, in the hearts of all of those she left behind. You were our sunshine. They have taken our sunshine away. We all love and miss you beyond words. The family wishes to thank all those who helped Amparo in her time of need. She was beautifully cared for at Mt. San Rafael Hospital in Trinidad. The Flight For Life people were amazing. All the doctors and nurses in ICU at Parkview Hospital, in Pueblo, were incredibly kind, generous and efficient. Mullare-Murphy Funeral Home also showed kindness and thoughtfulness in helping with the funeral arrangements. Thanks to the neighbors and friends that offered their condolences at the time that we needed them. THANK YOU ALL! Memorial services will be Friday, Sept. 18, 2009, 1 p.m., at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Trinidad. The family has entrusted Mullare-Murphy Funeral Home with the funeral arrangements.

Tucker, C. F. (Mrs.)
Mrs. C. F. Tucker - Rocky Mountain News - March 28, 1892 - Killed by Trouble - Mrs. C. F. Tucker, in a Fit of Insanity, Takes Enough Morphine to Kill Twenty People - Laying peacefully in her bed at 1703 Tremont street was found Mrs. C. F. Tucker yesterday afternoon about 7 o' clock. On a chair by her side was found a cup and a sixty-grain morphine bottle almost empty. It told the story. Mrs. Tucker was the wife of C. F. Tucker, a clerk at the Grand Union hotel of Trinidad. About two months ago she and her husband came to the house at 1703 Tremont Street and asked the landlady for a room to occupy for a month. A few weeks ago Mr. Tucker left for Trinidad to assume the position of assistant clerk at the hotel, leaving his wife in Denver. Mrs. Tucker, a woman of 25, of retiring disposition, the other lodgers in the house seldom saw, and no one seemed to visit her. On Thursday last she received a letter from Virginia, stating that her mother had died. The announcement of her loss affected her greatly and she remained nearly all day in her room alone, weeping. Mrs. Fassett, the lady of the house tried to comfort her but Mrs. Tucker could not be induced to dry her tears. ' Oh,'  she said to Mrs. Fassett, ' I have little more to live for, now that mother is gone. Oh what will become of me now.'  Her Last Morning - On Friday morning Mrs. Tucker seemed somewhat more composed, but still bowed with grief and sorrow over the death of her mother. Her face was pale and haggard, looking as though she had passed a sleepless night. That afternoon she went out of the house and was absent about an hour, employing this time doubtless in procuring the drug which ended her life. At about 7 o' clock in the evening she retired to her room and until yesterday, when she was discovered dead, no one had seen her. Her non-appearance on Saturday provoked some comment among the ladies of the house. It had been Mrs. Tucker' s custom to spend at least part of the evening in the drawing room down stairs. Miss Fassett said that she thought she had gone to visit one of her friends and, perhaps, spent the night with them. Her continued non-appearance yesterday, however, somewhat disturbed the landlady. Mrs. Tucker had always purchased one of the Sunday papers and when the carrier came as usual, early in the morning, Mrs. Fassett went to Mrs. Tucker' s door and rapped several times, but received no response. Later in the day, greatly worried, she spoke to one of the men living in the house, Mr. Upton by name. He proposed looking in the keyhole to see if the key was on the inside. A hasty examination disclosed that it was. Filled with vague apprehensions Mrs. Fassett requested Mr. Upton to go and get a policeman and get his advice on the matter. Upton found Officer Newton upon his accustomed beat on Sixteenth Street. Found Dead - After hearing the particulars in the case Officer Newton at once decided to break in the door. This was done and the mystery of Mrs. Tucker' s non-appearance was at once revealed. Upon the bed, the comforter carefully tucked around her shoulders, Mrs. Tucker, except for the pale, ashy hue of her face, looked as though she had just fallen asleep. The coroner was at once notified, and nothing was disturbed until the appearance of his men. The cup in which the morphine had been mixed showed that the mixture had more than half filled the glass. The small amount of powder still remaining in the bottle demonstrated that at least forty grains had been taken. With the care which, it is said, has always characterized Mrs. Tucker through life, every article of her clothing had been packed. Even the clothes and shoes which she had taken off before going to bed were found folded in the trunk. This shows that it was with calm deliberation that she took the fatal step. A Startling Letter - Upon a table near the bed was found a letter. The address was ' Mr. C. F. Tucker, Private.'  It contained the following words, intended for her husband alone, no doubt. Denver, Colo., March 25, 1892 - They are trying to put me in prison for life, and I would rather be dead. Do not give anything of mine to anyone; sell them, they will help you a little. Forget the quarrels we have had. Enclosed you may find $5 of the $5 you sent me. Bettie. The first words of this note are startling. The trunk and every crevice in the room was searched for a letter which might give some clue to this mystery. Not even the letter which Mrs. Fassett had delivered to her on Thursday was found. During the search Officer Newton casually opened the door of a small store in the room. It was half full of paper ashes. Every note or letter which Mrs. Tucker had at the time of her death had been committed to the flames. The grief caused by the death of her mother must have unbalanced her mind and filled her full of vague uncertain fantasies. The body was removed to the coroner' s office, where an inquest will be held to-day. From people but slightly acquainted with the Tuckers it was ascertained that their life has not always been a bed of roses. Before going to Trinidad he had a drapery shop on Fifteenth Street, but poor trade and the hard times drove him to the wall, and with his store went every cent he possessed on earth. He then was employed irregularly at different restaurants around town, picking up honest dollars wherever they could be found. His wife, of course, shared his poverty. Case of Insanity - When, two months ago, he got the permanent position in the hotel in Trinidad, he thought that his troubles were over. The hard struggle with life had its effect upon Mrs. Tucker, as demonstrated by her sad end. The death of her mother must have broken the last thread of her reason. Afraid of having her insanity disclosed to the world, with that cold, deliberate forethought which often characterizes insanity she plotted her own death, thinking in the last moment of her husband. Mr. Tucker was notified at once by telegram of the death of his wife, and he will no doubt arrive in Denver today. Trinidad, Colo., March 27 - The husband of the suicide, Mrs. Tucker, was found by The News correspondent in his room at the Grand Union hotel engaged in writing a letter in answer to one he had just received from his unfortunate wife. On being advised of his wife' s awful act, Mr. Tucker displayed no great signs of surprise, but seemed to be weighed down with grief. Mr. Tucker is a man of about 40 years of age, of low medium build, and looks like a man who had experienced a great deal of trouble. He is a baker by trade and formerly followed that business in Denver. The letter he received yesterday from his wife told of the recent death of her mother, said the shock had almost driven her crazy and she wanted her husband to come home. On being asked by the reporter what he thought her motive in suiciding was, Mr. Tucker half hysterically said that old trouble was the cause. It seems that several years ago a party of Denver men whose names Mr. Tucker would not mention tried to induce Mrs. Tucker to work boxes in a variety theater. The matter caused her much unhappiness and at times of later years the woman would imagine that people were after her with evil intent and she would often express a dread at going out of the house. Mr. Tucker has only been in Trinidad about two months and during that time has been doing bakery work at the Grand Union hotel. He says he will leave for Denver today.

Tucker, Connie Margaret
Connie Tucker - Trinidad Times Independent - February 8, 2008 - A local woman was killed Wednesday morning when a semi pulling a trailer hit the state patrol car in which she was sitting. A Colorado State Patrol trooper and two other people were also injured in the accident. Connie Tucker, 56, had been traveling southbound on I-25 with a co-worker Rhonda Traber, 49, several miles south of Walsenburg when poor weather conditions caused their car to slip on the icy road and experience a rollover. Relatively unhurt in the 8 a.m. rollover, Tucker and Traber, both women from Trinidad, were allowed by responding Colorado State Trooper, Brad Kennerson, 42, to wait inside his patrol car for the arrival of a tow truck. The patrol car was struck from behind by a semi as it sat on the left shoulder of the road. Both vehicles ended up in the median, with the patrol car pinned under the semi. Tucker was killed as the semi crushed the roof of the patrol car. Traber and Kennerson were seriously injured and required transportation by Flite for Life to treatment at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo. The driver of the semi, German Rosales, 23, received moderate injuries and was transported by ambulance to Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center in Walsenburg. It was unknown as of Thursday morning whether Rosales would face charges in the accident. The accident resulted in the closing of the southbound lanes of the interstate for several hours. The lanes were finally reopened at approximately 2 p.m. that day. As of early Thursday, Traber was listed by the hospital as being in critical condition, with Kennerson listed as being in fair condition. Both Tucker and Traber were employed at the Santa Fe Trail Museum, part of the Trinidad History Museum located at 312 E.

Tucker, Joe E.
Joe E. Tucker - Greeley Daily Tribune - May 3, 1950 - Pueblo Sheriff, Woman Deputy Die in Plane - Greeley, Neb., May 2 - Two persons, identified from papers as Sheriff Joe E. Tucker and his deputy, Mrs. Barbara Cook, both of Pueblo, Colo., were killed today in a plane crash seven miles northwest of here. The victims were identified by papers found in pockets of their clothing. County Attorney Barrett said the cause of the crash was unknown. There was no fire and no evidence of gas about the wreckage, Barrett said. And he speculated that the plane may have run out of gas. He said the plane apparently had stopped at Julesburg, Colo., earlier in the day for gas. A marked map indicated it may have been en route to Brainerd, Minn., Barrett said. The county attorney said Colorado authorities had been notified. In Pueblo, Undersheriff Joe DeJoy said Tucker, who had observed his 38th birthday Monday, was en-route to Brainerd, Minn., to take Mrs. Cook to the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Zoffee of that city. Mrs. Cook, DeJoy said, was the wife of Theodore F. Cook, who was sentenced recently to a one-year term in the state penitentiary for burglary. The couple had been separated, but Mrs. Cook came to Pueblo when her husband was arrested, he said. She was about 35. Tucker, who was elected sheriff in 1948 on the democratic ticket after having been defeated in 1946 by the same opponent, Earl H. Dunlap, is survived by his wife, Ethel. The couple had no children. DeJoy will serve as acting sheriff until a successor to complete the unexpired term, which ends next January, is appointed by the board of county commissioners. Tucker's 1946 try for the sheriff's job was his political debut. He was manager of the former army air base for about a year prior to 1948 when that facility was taken over by the city of Pueblo. Tucker, according to his flight instructor, Joe Rocco, obtained a private pilot's license last January. Rocco said Tucker made the fatal flight in a 1947 four-place plane which he had purchased last Friday from a Denver aviation firm. Rocco said Tucker had about 80 hours flight experience. John Smith, Greeley county sheriff, said it had been foggy in the area earlier in the day. However, he said, he did not believe visibility was limited enough at the time of the crash to hamper flying. The sheriff said Roger Mucahy, Greeley, had noticed the plane flying low about a mile from the crash scene. The plane did not appear to be in trouble, Mucahy said. Witnesses said wreckage of the plane was strewn for 250 feet from the point of the crash. The bodies of both Tucker and Mrs. Cook were badly mangled, Barrett said. Tucker's body was found about 50 feet from the crash, that of Mrs. Cook about 20 feet distance. A loaded .38 caliber revolver was found in the wreckage, Barrett said. The bodies were taken to the Finn mortuary at Greeley. Note: Joe Tucker was buried in Roselawn Cemetery in Pueblo, Colorado.
