Condolences

Condolence From: Donald i Montoya
Condolence: TO THE FAMILY OF STEVE. I WAS A CLASS MATE OF STEVES, BACK IN THE DAY WE CALLED HIM JONSIE. I JUST RECENTLY READ ABOUT HIS PASSING AND WANTED TO EXPRESSS MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES.
Wednesday July 27, 2022
Condolence From: Ruben Cantu
Condolence: Steve, I can’t believe you’re gone. Another classmate gone too soon. We go back a long way; all the way back to Taos Elementary School. We had a good time growing up together, playing football in the snow, basketball, messing around in class and having lots of laughs. What I remember most is your ability to make everyone around you laugh. You were also a best friend to everybody. That’s a great legacy, my friend. How many people can we say that about? To be able to make people laugh is such a gift and you did it every day, year after year.

We went through Elementary, Junior High and High School together and we always remained close friends.

After we graduated from High School, I left Taos and joined the United States Navy. I learned later, that you and two of our classmates joined the Marine Corps. Funny how we were only separated by a fence, in San Diego, and never saw each other. The Taos High School Class of ’74 was well represented by patriotic graduates and I am proud of all of them.

There was no social media in those days, so we didn’t keep in touch but, even as I do now, my mind wondered back to all of the friends I grew up with. You were in a lot of those memories.

The last time I saw you was when I went home to New Mexico, from Virginia, where I live now, for a short visit. My wife and I were in the mall, in Albuquerque, when I heard someone, from behind me, call out, “Hey Ruben!”. I turned around and it was you! I was so happy to see you again! We talked, a lot for the short time we spent together there. It was great catching up with each other! We shared memories, talked about our present, and had some good belly laughs. At last, we both had to leave. I left, feeling very happy that I had seen you again. I told my wife stories about growing up with you.

We kept in touch through social media, for some time. I left social media and lost touch with you again, until this sad announcement.

I was so sad to hear of your passing. My mind went back to old memories. I still have some of the those old class photos you gave me back in elementary school.

It’s been said that the gates of Heaven are guarded by United States Marines. As you were among our Nation’s Finest, I know that on judgement day, you’ll be there, in your dress blues, ensuring an orderly entry of deserving souls into Heaven and rejecting the unworthy from entry. I ask you, my brother, that when you see me standing there, you give me head of the line privileges. Until that day arrives, I send you, in Heaven above, an abrazo as a Taoseño. As we were both in the Naval Service of the United States, I bid you, “Fair Winds and Follow Seas”, my Marine Corps Shipmate, a “Semper Fi” and a slow hand salute. Rest in peace, my brother. You will not be forgotten. ~ Ruben Cantu, Richmond, Virginia but originally from Taos, New Mexico
