Cardenas, Mr.
Mr. Cardenas – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 18, 1875 – The Tolby Murder – Examination of the Accused and Shooting of Cardenas – The examination of the parties charged with being principals or accessories to the murder of Rev. F. J. Tolby, was held at Cimarron on Wednesday before a magistrate. Several parties from Elizabethtown testified as to the statement made by Cardenas implicating Longwill, Mills and Donahoe, showing that no force was used and that he made the same statement to different parties at different times. The investigation was very full. The court held that there was not sufficient evidence against M. W. Mills and he was discharged. Donahoe and Cardenas were bound over to await the action of the grand jury. A large number of people from all over the country were in attendance, and the utmost order and quiet prevailed. A meeting was held and resolutions adopted expressive of their determination to put down crime, and also to maintain peace and good order at all times in the country. While Cardenas was being conveyed to the jail, in charge of two guards, a party of unknown men seized him and overpowered the guards, shot Cardenas through the head, killing him instantly. Longwill was not arrested, having evaded the officers and made good his escape. He is supposed to be in Santa Fe. The Longwill alluded to above appears to be Dr. R. H. Longwill, of Cimarron, who is well known in this city. If, as stated, he has evaded the officers and left the town, the thing has an ugly look for him, but what interest he could have had in the murder of an itinerant preacher is beyond our comprehension. It may be when the excitement cools down a little that he will return and explain matters.

Cardinal, Agnes
Agnes Cardinal - Pueblo Chieftain - July 20, 2003 - Agnes Cardinal, at the wonderful age of 93, died in Pueblo, July 17, 2003, where she was born and raised. She grew up on Currie Street with her parents, Giuseppe and Maria Costanza; and brothers and sisters, Frank, John, Charles, Jean and Josephine, who have already passed, and Rose Snead and Sr. Mary Theophane who are still with us. She passed over to meet her husband, Sam R. Cardinal, who died in 1977. Agnes was a joyful and positive person who was always counting her blessings. The first among these were her three fine sons that she and Sam raised, and their families, Dave Cardinal and his wife Marianne of Pueblo, Bob Cardinale and his wife PJ of Santa Fe, N.M., and George (Sam) Cardinale and his wife Julie of Petaluma, Calif. Unconditional love of her sons and their nine remarkable children, and equally remarkable nine great-grandchildren, is just one of the reasons why Agnes will be remembered. Remarkable was a word she used a lot in taking total joy in her family. Very memorable as well were her wonderful flat Italian waffle-like cookies called pizzelles. Friends and family alike could count on a box of pizzelles for the trip home after a visit to her house. She thrived on breaded pork chops, stuffed artichokes and always had a stash of jelly beans in a drawer by the front door for herself and anyone else. The jelly beans gave her the energy to work in her yard every day and to edge her lawn with a pair of scissors. Her generosity was legendary and her husband's shop, Sam's Floor Covering, provided many kitchen floors and carpets for the residences of nuns and priests of Pueblo and especially Holy Cross Abbey in Canon City, Colo., for which she had a special attachment. One had to be very careful in admiring anything in her house because she would immediately try to give it to you. This was her way of living her philosophy of giving people her flowers when they could see and smell them. Many people have been, and continue to be, the recipients of her flowers. In addition, she will always be remembered for her simple, straightforward and loving way of saying things. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, you consider making a contribution to the Pueblo Community College Foundation, 900 W. Orman Ave, Pueblo, CO 81004, in her name. A Memorial service will be held at the T.G. McCarthy Funeral Home, 329 Goodnight Ave. at 7 p.m. Sunday, July 20, 2003, followed by a joyful wake at the Shrine of St. Therese for friends and family. There will be a funeral service at the Shrine of St. Therese at 10 a.m. Monday, July 21, 2003. Interment, Roselawn Cemetery.

Cardinal, Annette M.
Annette M. (Niccoli) Cardinal - Pueblo Chieftain - July 25, 2004 - Annette M. (Niccoli) Cardinal, a very young 94, passed away quietly on July 22, 2004, following a brief illness. Preceding her were her beloved husband, Robert (1988); parents, Mary and Michael Niccoli; sisters, Josephine M. Kendall, Inez and Josephine Niccoli; and brothers, Joseph, John, Charles "Sid", Victor "Vic" and Albert "Barney" Niccoli. Left behind to cherish Ann's memory are her loving daughter, Cindy (Tom) Haulik; granddaughters, Amy and Sara, all of Alpharetta, Ga.; brother, Frank (Wanda) Niccoli of California; sisters-in-law, Blanche, Clara and Geri Niccoli; adored nieces and nephews of Pueblo, Anita L. "Skip" Kendall (with whom she lived with nearly the past six years); Ronald and Connie, Jim "Bud" and Kay, and Paul W. Kendall; many more nieces, nephews, great-and great-great-nieces and-nephews, whom she loved dearly. Ann was born in Crested Butte, Colo., on Nov. 28, 1909. She knew many hardships, but managed to live a full, happy and extremely productive life. She spent the better part of her adult life in Fountain Valley, Calif., until moving to Pueblo in October of 1998 to live with her sister Josephine. To say that Ann was generous, thoughtful, selfless, kind and beyond creative would be a gross understatement. There are no words to describe her and how many many lives she has touched. She was an angel before her passing. Ann's hands and mind were never idle. She was planting flowers, redecorating something, and constantly sewing, crocheting or quilting something to her last days, and always for someone else. Up until the time she moved from Fountain Valley, Ann was involved with the Girl Scouts, the Friends of the Library, the Fountain Valley Historical Society, the Women's Quilting Club, and the Fountain Valley Women's Club, and surviving family member of the SS Russell naval ship each of which she held several official titles. These clubs and activities were her life and to leave them behind was a very traumatic experience for her; for these loving people she left behind were all like family to her. And to her last day, she spoke of them fondly. Ann leaves a legacy behind, which most of us only dream of and not just memories but material things. She has left us with hand-sewn quilts, which have won prizes at state fairs, hand-painted china plates, nick-knacks, and statuettes, embroidered and crocheted items we all hold so dear. There was absolutely nothing this pretty lady could not do if she wanted. She leaves a giant hole in the lives of the living, but fills a well-deserved space in heaven. Graveside services will be 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 27, 2004, at Mountain View Cemetery (enter west Acero gate). Monsignor Marvin Kapushion will preside. Please omit flowers and food. Donations may be made to the SRDA in Pueblo c/o the funeral home.

Caricato, Bill D.
Bill D. Caricato - Pueblo Chieftain - May 09, 2004 - Bill D. Caricato departed this life on May 6, 2004, for the kingdom his Savior has prepared for him. He was 65 years old. Born in Pueblo on May 27, 1938, he was not only raised in Pueblo, but also spent the majority of his married life there. In his youth, he attended St. Patrick's Catholic School, Central High School, and then completed his education at University of Southern Colorado, after returning from the service. For the last 18 years, Bill and his wife, Jody, have resided in Penrose, Colo. He is survived by his wife of 42 years; his sons, Greg (Jessica) of Springfield, Colo., Glenn (Teresa) Caricato of Manhattan, Kan.; and daughter, Kathy (John) Lane, Pueblo, Colo. Bill is the grandfather of eight grandchildren, Aaron, Vincent and Sean Caricato, Shelby Thompson, Kyla and Emily Caricato, and Nicole and John Lane. Bill is the brother-in-law of Nick (Loraine) Gemma, John (Shirley) Tucci and Sylvia Caricato O'Donnell (Jim). He is also the uncle of numerous nieces and nephews.

Bill loved football, baseball and bowling; and proved himself as outstanding in all three. As a spectator, he enjoyed most sports and was an avid NASCAR fan. While a Pueblo resident, Bill and his wife were members of Holy Family Parish. Upon their move to Penrose, they joined St. Benedict's Church in Florence, Colo. Bill's warm smile and unique sense of humor touched the lives and hearts of family, friends and day-to-day acquaintances. Bill also seemed to sense the nobleness of God's creatures - both wild and domesticated - and they became his avocation. Whether bird, cat, horse or dog, each lingered near him while he talked to them, won their confidence, and then took care of them. In July of 2000, Bill was diagnosed with cancer. Throughout his long battle against this relentless disease, friends, loved ones, and all who came into his life witnessed Bill's strength as a strong fighter, the power of his persistence and endurance, and the meaning of courage. Most importantly, Bill found both strength in the power of prayer and peace through the promise of his Savior's redeeming grace. Bill will be missed by many, but never forgotten.

Carlino, Charles
Charles Carlino – Eagle County News – September 29, 1923 – Pueblo – Direct informations have been filed in the District Court against Vitto Danno, John Danno and Carlo Valento, charging the three with the murder of Dominic Ingo of Chicago and Charles Carlino of Vineland, near the Baxter bridge, on Sept. 10. Colorado Springs Gazette – May 15, 1926 – Two Men Killed in Outbreak of Pueblo's Ancient Blackhand War – Danna Brothers Shot Down from Closed Automobile as They Stood on Street; Posses Closing in on Quartet of Slayers Trapped in Coal Camp Near Walsenburg – Pueblo, Saturday, May 15 (AP) – Two men are dead and a third wounded in the most recent outbreak of Pueblo's Blackhand war. Two brothers, the third of one family, were fatally wounded yesterday afternoon by assassins and an innocent bystander was wounded by a stray shot. Pete and Tony Danna died last night. They were shot down at 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when they were standing in front of a pool hall in the heart of the business district. Sam English, owner of the pool hall, was shot in the leg. Capture of the murderers is regarded as certain by officers at an early hour this morning for the occupants of the murder car are said to be trapped in a coal camp near Walsenburg and posses from three cities are closing the net drawn around the murderers' rendevous. Late developments last night indicated without a doubt, police and the sheriff said, that the killing was a result of the blackhand war of many years' standing. The murder car, a Hudson coach with curtains drawn, passed slowly in front of the pool hall where the Danna brothers were standing, and shot from sawed-off shotguns cut the brothers down before they had time to draw their own weapons. Doctors in attendance stated that both of the men had received from 30 to 40 shot, the bodies being literally torn to pieces from the heavy charge. Their brother, John, was killed in July, 1925, in an alleged blackhand killing but no arrest had ever been made in that case. The two killed yesterday were said to be leaders of the same faction as Frank Bacino, murdered in Denver a short time ago. Pete Danna was out on $10,000 bond in connection with the notorious black hand battle near Baxter, Colo., in September, 1922, in which John Ingo, Dominio Ingo and Charles Carlino were killed. Carlino was a brother of Sam Carlino, one of the four men Pete Danna alleged to have been in the automobile from which the shooting was done Wednesday.
