BACA -- Eric Baca, 81, an Albuquerque resident born and raised in Barelas, finished his course on this earth early Wednesday morning, August 13, 2008. He was a friend to all, an indispensable help to many, a wonderful husband to his wife, Jessica, and the best father, grandfather, and great-grandfather ever. He lived a full and colorful life. He was an Albuquerque High Bulldog, Class of 1945. He was an Armed Services veteran, having served his country as a paratrooper during and after WWII. He attended UNM and Berkeley, graduating with a degree in accounting. He worked at the US Post Office, was the business manager and best friend of prize fighter Art "Golden Boy" Aragon, and he sold many native Albuquerqeans their first car at his lot on 4th Street in the '50's. He was very active in New Mexico's Democrat Party, helping many candidates into elected office (he was Hubert Humphrey's New Mexico presidential campaign manager in 1968), and loved being a businessman and investor. Eric is best known locally as the owner of "Eric Baca's Tax Service" and "BC Bail Bonds" (where Eric and partner Buddy Caire promised to "Get You Out Even If It Takes 10 Years!") downtown at 6th and Lomas NW. Eric had a much broader, less noticed ministry serving and helping anyone he came into contact with. He gave support to many needy individuals, ministers, ministries, orphanages, the local performing arts community, and was a member of the National Hispanic Cultural Center and many other local groups and organizations. In his business life, his social life, and his family life he treated everyone like they were very special, and that their needs were very important to him. He always had the answer to every situation, and the solution to anyone's problem. He loved God, his family, and his work. His wisdom, his "life-of-the-party" sense of humor, and his generosity will be missed by all of his family and his many friends. Eric is survived by his wife of 57 years, Jessica Baca; daughters Alexia Baca-Morgan and Claudia Baca-Moore and husband, Wyatt Moore; daughter-in-law, Joan Baca; grandchildren Leanna Archuleta, Shannon Schmidt, Marja and Johnny Morgan, Francesca and Carla Baca; and great-grandchildren Siara and Anthony Guzzio and Jeremy Schmidt.

In 1971, Harold (and his wife Shirley) moved to Dallas and he became President of the Sporting Goods Division for Zales opening and operating 42 stores in a period of five years. In 1974, he left Zales and returned to Albuquerque taking a position in advertising and marketing at the First Interstate Bank, which he held until 1979. In 1975, he opened Roberto's Luggage store in El Paso Elcon Mall, in 1979 a second Roberto's in Winrock, and then in Midland, TX in 1981, finally selling all three stores in 1982. He was also associated with Gardenswartz Team Sales from 1984-88 until his retirement. In 1940, he married Shirley Spiegelman and they just celebrated 68 years of marriage. He is survived by children Art (Sonya Priestly), Joann (Philip Carchman) and Bobbi (Gary Siegel); his grandchildren Seth, Dan, Rena, Rebecca, Jennie, David and Jonathan; and nine great-grandchildren.

He and his wife were instrumental in establishing the Ronald Gardenwartz Jewish Community Center in 2000, and together received the Harold B. Albert Community Service Award and Presidential Award by the JCC of Greater Albuquerque. Harold was very generous with his time and resources with his community and his family.

He enjoyed golf, fishing, and playing cards; he frequently had hot gin rummy games going with his friends, called the Gin Club, and at the Albuquerque Country Club. Family was very important to him and he organized yearly family reunions.
