MCNABB -- Gary D. "Sonny" McNabb, age 72, a resident of Bosque Farms, NM, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 12, 2008 at his home, following a short illness. He was born November 5, 1935 in Mountainair, NM, the son of Kenneth and Irene McNabb. He married Lillie M. Valenzuela on July 18, 1959, after dating her for one year upon his return from the Korean Conflict. After his first few years in Mountainair, roaming the hillsides, he moved to Albuquerque in 1941 with his parents and three siblings. He attended Albuquerque High School and received his G.E.D. while serving his country in the United States Navy. He was on active duty from 1954 thru 1958, with the 7th Fleet, serving on four ships, which included 18 trips across the Pacific Ocean during the Korean Conflict. He received his honorable discharge in 1962 for "honest and faithful service" to his country. Upon his return from the war, he worked at Standard Oil Station briefly where he met the love of his life, Lillie, while she worked as a waitress at Mario's in the adjacent building. While continuing to sweep Lillie off her feet, he went to work at Dan's Boots and Saddles and developed his leatherwork skills. In 1959, he joined Ironworkers Local #495 of Albuquerque and served his trade honorably until his retirement in 1985. During his 26 years as a Union Ironworker, he worked throughout the western United States on some of the most prominent projects shaping the skylines of major cities, as well as some of the most secretive projects in secure locations. He was also a member of the American Legion Post 13 in Albuquerque and the Elks Lodge #2499 in Belen. His unbelievable talents and love for leatherwork, silversmithing and ornamental ironwork allowed him to create unforgettable art. In his lifetime, his love for his family was unmatched, but second to that was his love for hunting and fishing. There was hardly a mountain range in New Mexico that he had not traversed, nor a lake, stream or river his hook had not ventured into. As of September 12, 2008, "He's Gone Fishin!" Sonny was preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Irene McNabb; and his sister, Joyce Chance. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Lillie; his daughter, Ione Wilson and granddaughters, Whitney Wilson and DeeDee Tapia (Mario); great-grandchildren, Sebastian, Ethan and Leah; granddaughter, Lee Anne Marquez (Nava) and great-grandchildren, Serena, Mya and Gage; his son, Forrest and his wife, Laura; granddaughter, Angela Glud (John); grandson, Ryan; his brothers, Kenneth "Butch" McNabb (Bernice) and Larry McNabb; his closest cousin and cohort, Wayne McNabb and many other loving cousins, nieces and nephews of the McNabb family; tia Sara and the Valenzuela family and a long list of great friends. A Celebration of Sonny's life will be held on Friday, September 19, 2008 at 6:00 p.m., at the Calvary Chapel of the Rio Grande Valley, with Pastor Sam Saiz officiating. The family will receive friends beginning at 5:00 p.m. Inurnment with military honors will be held at a later date at the Santa Fe National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family is accepting donations to create a permanent memorial on behalf of Gary D. "Sonny" McNabb, reflecting Veterans of the United States Armed Forces and the events of September 11, 2001. Arrangements are being handled by Riverside Funeral Home of Belen, 418 W. Reinken Ave. An online guest register is available at www.riversideofbelen.com

NAVARRE -- Harry Navarre, D.M.D. Dr. Harry Navarre passed away a "boy of the Golden West," he was born in Alhambra, CA, on November 9, 1916, and was preceded in death by his mother, Rita Navarre and sister, Doris Gorka. Dr. Navarre was a child actor in the silent Our Gang comedies and Kid Kahn productions. A profound dislike for the acting profession, however, spawned his vow and childhood dream, "to become a doctor". Dr. Navarre attended the University of Southern California. He then continued his dental education at the University of Louisville (Kentucky) where he specialized in oral and maxillofacial surgery and later interned at Louisville General Hospital. To our community's credit, Dr. Navarre chose to reside and practice his profession under the clear, blue Albuquerque sky which was conducive to another passion, flying. After retirement from a long and successful career in 1984, he continued and enjoyed many hobbies including the love of flying his plane, Bellanca #8847 Romeo, one of several throughout his lifetime. An aficionado of the antique American automobile, Dr. Navarre was an active participant and venerated member of the Model T Ford Club of America and the Veteran Motor Car Club of America. Dr Navarre's professional associations include the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the International Association of Anesthesiologists, Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity, and a life member of both the American Dental Association and the New Mexico Dental Association. In addition, Dr. Navarre has served as Editor, Secretary and President of the Albuquerque District Dental Society. A man of principle and courage, Dr. Navarre contributed much to the health, well being and support of our community. He donated generously to the Presbyterian Health Care Foundation, the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra and to the Norwegian American Museum in Decorah, Iowa. Dr. Navarre is survived by his devoted wife of 45 years, Irene O'Connor Navarre. Together they enjoyed traveling to many parts of the world and especially in their private plane from Canada to Mexico and to all states throughout the USA. Dr. Navarre will be greatly missed by his loving wife, his nephews, Richard Jones and James Jones and their families in Minnesota, as well as his many friends and former patients. He will be especially missed by his long-time, exceptional care-giver, Clara Camp, whose attention and skill provided comfort and reassurance in his final days. Respecting Dr. Navarre's request, there will be a private interment in Granite Falls, MN. The family suggests memorial donations be made to the Presbyterian Health Care Foundation, PO Box 26666, Albuquerque, NM 87125.
