WALCK -- ALFRED "AL" RAYMOND Died Sunday, February 12, 2012 in Albuquerque. Al was born in Ojo Feliz, NM on September 13, 1949 to John E., II and Mary (Vigil) Walck. His father left while Al was very young and Al was reared by his mother and grandparents on a ranch in Ojo Feliz in Mora County, NM. Helping raise crops, shearing sheep, plus working and playing with his siblings and cousins served as the foundation to build the character of Al. He loved being outdoors, he loved hunting, and he learned the value of hard work. Al's love for his ranch continued all through his life and he enjoyed riding his ATV around just to "check out things". Since his father left at a young age, Al became a father figure to many around him, something he demonstrated all through his life and career. Another characteristic of Al was his passion about everything he did. Al cared deeply and generously for his family. As an adult, Al became a single parent to his five children. Even when times were tough, he always managed a way to provide for his kids. He carried that love of family over to his grandchildren too. They were the light of his life. Al retired from the Albuquerque Police Department in November 2011 after 38 years with the department. Al displayed a macho exterior that covered a gentle and generous inside. Al never met a stranger. People may remember him as a talker who repeated his "stories". He was opinionated, yet he earned the respect of many around him. Al was very active and he was always on the go. Because he was a night-owl, he would often take "mid-night" walks with his children. By his example, Al showed his family to be generous, honest and helpful. He was always stopping to help others in need. Whether it was to help a stranded motorist or to give someone on the street a lift, Al was always there. Al is survived by his children, Debbie Miera-Walck and husband, Lee Moseley, Antonia Naranjo and husband, Chris, Laz Walck and partner, Remington Reed, Victoria Walck and husband, Arnold Gallegos, Jr., Julia Skains, life partner; step-children, Lyle and Tres Skains; grandchildren, Michael Naranjo, Jacob Naranjo, Danielle Walck, Ariana Gallegos, Alberto Miera-Moseley, Diana Gallegos, Marie Miera-Moseley, Briana Gallegos; brother, John E. Walck, III and wife, Silvia; sister, Janice Encinias and husband, Richard; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and his police family from A.P.D. Al was preceded in death by his son, Alfred Jr.; mother, Mary Vigil Lee; grandparents, Lazaro and Josefita Vigil; and mother of his children, Belinda. Public visitations will be held from 2:00pm to 5:00pm on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 and noon to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at Daniels Family Funeral Services Coal Ave. Chapel, 1100 Coal Ave. SE.

Funeral Service to be held at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at Shrine of St. Bernadette with a second funeral service to be held on Friday, February 17, 2012 at Immaculate Conception Parish, 811 Sixth St., Las Vegas, NM with Burial to follow at his ranch in Ojo Feliz.
