FIDEL DEL JACQUES Began his journey on this earth on April 24th, 1936 in Gallina, New Mexico the fourth child of Eudoro and Frances Jacques. He was called home in the early morning hours of May 30th, 2014. He spent the first 63 years of his life in New Mexico where he raised two daughters with his first wife. He married the love of his life, Tropa on June 21 st, 1977 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and he became step-dad to a son and daughter. Del and Tropa both retired from jobs in Los Alamos, and moved to Wellston, Oklahoma in 1999 where they built a home and a life together. Del was a natural born cowboy who always had a horse or two or forty. He was a member of the Sheriff's Posse in Los Alamos , New Mexico and was a life member of the BPOE in Los Alamos where he moved up the chairs and was Exalted Ruler in 1982-1983, and Elk of the Year in 1993-1994. He continued to be involved with the Elks Lodge in Edmond and never failed to "cowboy up" wherever and whenever he was needed. Del never met a stranger. He made friends everywhere he went. Always charming and charasmatic, he had a wonderful sense of humor and was the most loyal friend anyone could ever need. He will be missed by all who had the good fortune to be his friend. He will be remembered by his family as the very best husband and father, God will allow. Forever a Cowboy and Angel. he was interred Wednesday, June 4th at 10:00 a.m. on the family farm in Wellston, Oklahoma, a place he never wanted to leave.
