He was preceded in death by his wife of 25 years, Linda Freeman Middleton, his father and mother, Sheltz and Helen Middleton, as well as his brother, Charles Middleton. In 1959, Jack graduated from Stuart High School in Iowa. He married his high school sweetheart, Marcia Woodson and joined the United States Air Force. Jack and Marcia had three children Scott, Sindi and Kristine. Jack's family followed him to as many of his duty stations as they were permitted, moving every 18 months to two years. Jack retired from the U.S.A.F. after 20 years of service with the rank of master sergeant. He worked as a jet engine mechanic. During his tour of duty he was stationed at various bases including Chanute Air Force Base, Illinois; Hill Air Force Base, Utah; MacDill Air Force Base, Florida; various bases in Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan and Guam; Yokota Air Force Base, Japan; Kadena Air Force Base, Okinawa; Castle Air Force Base, California; Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, and finally Holloman Air Force Base, where he retired with his family. Jack received numerous commendations during his career, including the Air Force Commendation Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Good Conduct Medal, the Air Force Longevity Service Award Ribbon with four Oak Leaf Clusters, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal with one Bronze Star, Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with one Oak Leaf Cluster, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal and the Air Force Good Conduct Medal with four Oak Leaf Clusters. After Jack retired from the Air Force, he worked briefly for Lear Siegler; dabbled in the farming industry, raising rabbits; sold life insurance for A.L. Willliams, and he owned a lumber store in Stuart, Iowa, for a few years. In 1987, he decided that his true calling was custom wood working, so he moved back to Alamogordo to escape the harsh Iowa winters. Jack soon after met and married his second wife, Linda. They started a business by the name of J & L Creative Woods, where he built beautiful custom cabinets and other furnishings, for twenty years, until his health required him to finally retire. Some of his best work can be seen at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center and Alamogordo Physical Therapy. The pride of his career is the work that he did for Charles Durrett at his home on Tres Lagos. The most amazing wood work and cabinetry ever to be seen in Alamogordo. Jack will truly be missed for his wonderful sense of humor and generous nature. He was a blessing to his family and friends. There will be a graveside service for Jack on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at 2 p.m., at Monte Vista Cemetery with military honors provided by the Holloman Air Force Base Steel Talons Honor Guard. A reception will follow at 2403 Tres Lagos, where to celebrate his life with family and friends. The Middleton family has entrusted the care of their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home.

Miller, Bryan Charles  
Bryan was born in Las Cruces to Terry Miller and the late Kevin Miller. He was the first born, the learner child. His parents were young and knew very little about babies but they adored him and seldom even put him down. They did all the wrong things, like letting him sleep with them, giving him honey, letting him play in the dirt and using brandy for teething pain. Needless to say Bryan learned quick how to survive. Bryan had the hugest heart but definitely stood strong in his beliefs. After losing his father at an early age, he often took the role as leader and protector. He watched over his mother and family in ways that only a Hero would. After being diagnosed in his early teens he was determined to play all sports including basketball, football and golf. After graduating he accomplished many things. He was a firefighter for Sacramento mountain wildfire and with the U.S. Forest Service, he rode some bulls, he did mechanics, sold guns and sold car parts. He always had a smile, remembered your name and gave you a meaningful hand shake. But Bryan's best accomplishment was as a dad and husband. He was the best one could hope to be. The best a Hero could be. Bryan is liked, loved and adored by many. Bryan is survived by his dedicated loving wife Mary, and his handsome 6 year old son, Kevin. His loving mother Tee and step father Michael Mackewich, brother Justyn Miller and wife Deanna and Jesse and Scarlette; brothers Dylan Miller and Kyle McWilliams and Fiancée Kristina Carpenter; sister Tyler McWilliams; maternal grandparents Raymond and Hazel Trigg; paternal grandparents Virginia and the late Robert Stanley Miller; best friend and partner in crime Marc and Jennie Cavasos; and many other family members and friends. RIP Redneck Superhero! Services for Bryan Miller will be conducted at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 2, 2015 at Alamogordo Funeral Home with Eddie Coleman officiating.

Sanchez, John Anthony  
John Anthony Sanchez was called home to be with the Lord on Good Friday April 3, 2015. "Uncle John" as the family affectionately called him was born in Los Angeles, Calif., April 14, 1965. He was raised in Alamogordo. He attended Alamogordo High School and served in the Army National guard and received an honorable discharge. He was raised on the famous "Oregon Street" block where he was known as "Ants". Those, who don't know about Oregon Street, it was neighborhood with a very tight group of kids who, even until the day of his death, were part of his life. Anthony was always known as a free spirit. Frankly, he was a hell raiser known to be the life of the party. He knew how to have a good time and enjoyed life with family and friends. His family would like to tell you another side of Anthony. On Good Friday we lost a good son, brother and uncle. He didn't have much and even less to give; but what he did give came from the heart and was most likely made with his two hands. He was a very accomplished artist and made beautiful art work. His illness prevented him from enjoying his true passions of hunting and fishing. He had an impeccable reputation as a carpenter, painter and drywall installer. Although you didn't hear him say "I love you," he loved with his heart and soul. Anthony leaves behind his parents Raymond and Stella Diaz of Alamogordo; sisters Lorena (Sanchez) Chavez and Robert Bernal of Alamogordo; Josephine Rue of Ruidoso; Lisa (Sanchez) Vargas and her husband Ariel Vargas of Roswell; Missy (Sanchez) Diaz of Phoenix, Ariz.; Robin (Diaz) Harcrow and her husband Billy Harcrow of North Bend, Wash.; brother Ruben Diaz and his wife Angela Diaz of Snoqualmie, Wash. He also left behind numerous nephews and nieces, including: Carlos and Isaac Chavez; Jesse Ray, Desaray and Audryanna Barraza; Elizabeth Jackson; Jaylon and Nehemiah Harcrow; Aubryanna, Cierra and Tatum Diaz, and Nick, Shawn and Britney Rue. Anthony would have liked nothing better than a celebration with friends and family to commemorate his life at his parents, pending his wish of cremation. For more information on this celebration contact Lorena Chavez at 575-921-2927.
