Micek, Albert J.
Albert J. Micek - Pueblo Chieftain - December 24, 1997 - Albert J. Micek passed away Dec. 20, 1997, in Albuquerque, N.M. He was born in Ideal Coal Camp on March 10, 1913, the ninth of 11 children to Valentine and Josephine Micek who had immigrated from Czechoslovakia. In 1938, Albert met and married Johanna Fink. He was a talented mechanic and meticulous carpenter, but his greatest love was working cattle. When he was up on a horse, he seemed to own the world. Over the next 50 years, Albert and Johanna raised anything and everything: turkeys, goats, chickens, cattle, hay, oats, to transform the four room rock house into a home and thriving cattle ranching operation and to raise the only crop that ever paid off: kids. Albert adored his children. One of the most devastating tragedies of his life was the untimely death of his dear son, Lonnie, in a 1962 construction accident. In 1970, at age 77, Albert decided to fold up the cattle business. In his later years, Albert took up his longtime hobbies, pool and music. Albert was a gentle father, a playful grandfather, a generous friend, a honest and wise businessman, and a faithful member of St. Mary Catholic Church, where he served as a Eucharistic Minister. He is survived by his wife, Johanna- four children, Alberta (Dallas) Priest, Leonard (Laura) Micek, Regina (Daniel) Gleason, and Mary Jo (David) Tesitor- 14 grandchildren- six great-grandchildren- his two surviving sisters, Bessie Eccher and Agnes Zubal- and numerous nieces and nephews. Services will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church in Walsenburg. The rosary will be prayed Friday, Dec. 26, 1997, at 3:30 p.m. followed by the funeral Mass at 4 p.m. A reception will follow at Mazzone Hall. Burial will be on Saturday.
