He graduated from Moriarty High School in 2003, was currently attending UNM and had recently chosen Landscape Architecture as his field of interest. He grew up working in the family trading post in Golden becoming very knowledgeable about Native American craft and sharing a special love of Navajo rugs with his grandfather.

He is survived by his father and mother, Allen and Desiri Pielhau, sister, Shanna Pielhau and her boyfriend, Paul Brownell, his maternal grandparents, Bill and Vera Henderson, paternal grandmother, Mildred Pielhau (he was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Frank Pielhau), Great Uncle, Leroy Henderson, Aunt Johanna Brown and her husband, Shane, Uncle Frank Pielhau and his wife, Barbara and cousins, Frank, Kevin and Kimberly Pielhau.

He will also be remembered by life long family friends, John and Karin Carr and son, Jed and wife, Amy, Wally and Donna McClellan and sons, Will and Dan, and Kris and Annette Stephens and children, Derek and Blakely. A special thanks to the caring staff at UNM Hospital, the many nameless people who were so supportive at the accident scene and all of the wonderful people who have since so generously shown their love and support.

Prayer of St. Francis Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy. Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; To be understood as to understand; To be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, In pardoning that we are pardoned, And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. French Mortuary 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE 275-3500
