CATANACH, ALFONSO "IKIE" December 20, 1926 - September 14, 2014 Alfonso "Ikie" Catanach, a lifetime resident of Santa Fe, passed away Sept 14th, surrounded by his family after a brief illness. One of eight children of James and Eulalia Catanach, Ikie was born on Dec. 20, 1926. He was a loving, kind, and gentle husband, father, and grandfather who often had a twinkle in his eye and mischief in his heart. More than anything he enjoyed spending time with his loved ones and dog, Chaco. Ikie was best defined by his deep devotion to his Catholic faith. Going all the way back to his youth and through his entire adult life he demonstrated his devotion in several ways, including regularly serving Mass for the Archbishop, sneaking across the Iron Curtain to attend Mass while serving in the Army Infantry post WWII Europe, frequently attending Eucharistic Adoration, saying daily Rosary, participating in the novenas and processions for La Conquistadora, and at times working two jobs to ensure his children were able to attend Catholic School. Education was extremely important to Ikie and he was proud of his children's and grandchildren's academic accomplishments. He was also known for his devotion to his family and his love for Notre Dame, NY Yankees, Green Bay Packers, westerns, and mariachi music. Ikie retired after almost 30 years of working at the NM State Penitentiary. He was preceded in death by his parents, loving wife and constant partner, Stella, his siblings - Billy, Margaret, Jimmy, and Murray. He is survived by his children Patty Catanach (Lloyd), Robert Catanach (Rosie), and Priscilla Gaussoin (Roch), his six grandchildren - Nicholas Valdez (Jessica), Sarah Gaussoin (Wesley Todd), Travis Gaussoin, Dr. Therese Catanach, Maria Catanach, and Thomas Catanach, and two great-grandchildren - January, daughter of Nicholas, and Lincoln Alfonso, unborn son of Sarah. He is also survived by his brother Marcos (Lila), sisters-in-law Teena, Gloria, and Lou Catanach, Celine Ortega (Charlie), Viola Romero (Mariano), and a multitude of extended family and friends. The family appreciates the dedication and help his physicians and their staff provided to Ikie this last year. Appreciation and gratitude also go to Margaret Murray and Mike Lara for their love, support, and selfless attention to Ikie. A Rosary will take place Monday, Sept. 22nd at 6pm at Rosario Chapel. Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, Sept 23rd at 9am at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Santa Fe, with interment to follow at the Santa Fe National Cemetery.

CORDOVA, DENNIS ROBERT 1940-2014 Dennis Robert Cordova, age 74, went to be with our Lord on Sunday, September 14, 2014 surrounded by his family. He was born June 29, 1940 in Belen, New Mexico to Manuel and Trinnie Baca Cordova. Together with his eight brothers and sisters, he did not have the easiest youth, but his family's house was always filled with laughter and music, which became a significant part of his personality. For a man who never finished high school, Dennis graduated from the University of New Mexico (UNM) with a Bachelor of Arts, and a Master from San Diego State University. In his early career, he worked for the Public Service Company of New Mexico. He was at the same time President of the Belen Chapter of the Jaycees. His easiness with all kinds of people and his ability to communicate made him a highly appreciated and also respected person. Therefore, after his studies, he became a primary school teacher for a Catholic School in Chula Vista. He then moved to Albuquerque in the late 1980s, where he started a successful General Educational Development (GED) Program for UNM. Taking his skills in Education, he became Head of Education for a US Correctional Facility. Here, he met with former President Fox of Mexico, to bring a Mexican GED program to inmates. Retired in Grants, he volunteered in both Obama campaigns and was also a Poll Worker for many elections. Dennis Cordova also loved to dance, golf, motorcycle, baseball (St. Louis Cardinals), puzzles, Johnny Cash and John Wayne. He was preceded in his death by his wife (the true love of his life), Deola who passed away much too early; as well as his parents; his brothers, Raymond and Ruben; and his niece, Ericka. He leaves behind his children: Jon Conrad Cordova and husband, Thomas Biland, Corine "CC" Cordova, Chris Cordova and wife, Cindy, Cindy Mitchell and husband, Eric. Dennis loved his grandchildren who will miss him dearly: Daniele, Jonathan and Kristina Martinez, Curtis and Shay Cordova, Austin and Cody Cordova, Anne-Sophie and Gregory Biland, and the apple of his eye, his great-granddaughter, Liliana. He is also survived by his brothers, Toby and Ernie Cordova; his sisters, Rosie Montoya and husband, Henry, Margaret Montoya and husband, Joe, Anna Upton and husband, Tony, Donna Bergevin and husband, Don; along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends. Dennis loved life and had an incredible belief in the good in human beings. Being surrounded by his kids and family made him truly happy. He was a warm hearted, positive with a mischievous side, who spread harmony and peace. He will be remembered as living his life the way he wanted, to the fullest because he was "JUST LIKE COLOR TV". A Funeral Mass will take place at Romero Funeral Home in Belen on Saturday, October 4th at 11:00 am. Interment will follow at Our Lady of Belen Memorial Gardens. It is requested to wear red or something with the Cardinals in his honor. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made in the Dennis Cordova Memorial Fund, Bank of Albuquerque, P.O. Box 26027, Albuquerque, NM 87125-6027.

CROMER, ROBERT A. A compassionate soul, published writer and an around-the- fireplace philosopher, passed away August 21, 2014 in Albuquerque, NM at the age of 60. He had a love for the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Bears, green chile stew, good German beer and most things Mopar. Born in Milwaukee, WI on September 23, 1953, Robert was raised mostly in Chicago, IL where he met and married his best friend and soul mate, Patricia. Though the two almost let a pickle - yes, a dill pickle - decide their fate, they married May 28, 1978 and went on to have two - dare we say amazing - children and eventually made the move to Albuquerque, NM. Once in NM, Robert was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with his second family in Laguna Pueblo for 16 years as the Director of the Alcohol, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Program. Throughout his years in Laguna, Robert was inspired to return to college at the age of 50, where he earned his master's degree in Public Administration. Always laughing and telling Jokes, Robert was an easy-going guy with a real passion for helping others, which was something he shared immensely with his wife. He and Patricia founded a non-profit organization (North Campus Community Project) to inspire neighbors and their surrounding community to work together in order to help other less fortunate neighbors meet their needs and to enhance the quality of their community-at-large. As many may not have guessed, Robert had been partial to collecting jackets, belts and shoes and passed this tradition on to his daughter, Rana, who has since added purses to the mix. In addition to style variety and the "Comer smile", Robert also passed on his writing talents to his daughter for good measure. He coached his son, Justin, from t-ball to high school baseball and even though he was harder on him than anyone else on the team, it helped shape Justin into the remarkable man and devoted father he is today. To honor equality among siblings, Robert also shared his love of American muscle cars and good classic rock with both children. Appropriately proclaimed by Robert's son-in-law, Leo, going to the Comer house was like being in music appreciation class, only better because there was incredible company and great food. Tunes were always playing and laughter was a constant around the dinner table. Nights there always ran late and no one would get home until at least midnight. Family was the single most important thing to Robert and he made sure his wife and children always knew how much they were loved. He is survived by his wife, Patricia (Day) Comer; daughter, Rana (Comer) Doyal and husband Leo, III; son, Justin Comer and wife Sheena (Hawkins); grandchildren Kade and Kylah Comer; lovingly-acquired grandchildren, Hanna, Alec, and Emma Doyal; Travis Jr. and Aria Jones; brothers, Jim Comer of Antioch, IL and Jack Comer of Cold Springs, TX; and sister Ann (Comer) Wallor of Palatine, IL. Robert was predeceased by both parents, Alton Comer and Clara Jean (Thiel) Comer. A celebration of life will be held in honor of Robert on September 27, 2014 at 4:00 pm. Please call (505) 263-4249 for further information.
