He is survived by his three children, Scott Middleton of Canyon Lake, Texas; Sindi Neudorf and her husband, George, of Alamogordo, and Kristine Villard also of Alamogordo. He is also survived by his sister, Marilyn Roberts and her husband Donald of Stuart, Iowa; five grandchildren, Cinthia Villard, Ryan Middleton, Adam Middleton, Nikolaus Neudorf, John Villard and Cody Villard, and one great-granddaughter, Lena. 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.

Posey, Mary Edith  
Mary Edith Posey passed away peacefully at her home in Alamogordo, New Mexico on May 11, 2015. Edith was born Mary Edith Dove on August 5, 1930 in Dierks, Arkansas to Robert John and Mary Thedus Dove. She was strong from the day she was born. She almost died from whooping cough as a baby, but she fought through it. The family moved to Otero County in 1939 and after a brief time in California settled in Mayhill. She had arms of steel from the years helping her father pump gas at their gas station. She went alone to a revival in the mountains of New Mexico when she was 11 years old, and there she decided to give her life to the Lord. In those same mountains she met John Posey, both of them just teens. When another revival came to town, they went together. They surprised everyone at church one day when they got married. She was 16 and he was 17. They had nothing to their names, and they had to switch off staying at the homes of their parents. Eventually they built their lives in different cities and then different states including Texas and California, but they eventually moved back to Otero County. Their only daughter, Laverne (Posey) Jordan, was born in El Paso in 1951. Edith loved to cook, sew and quilt. Events in her family would motivate her to create a masterful quilt or cute clothes, and always motivated her to cook food that comforted her loved ones. Edith and her husband have always been active in their community churches. Edith is survived by her husband, John Posey; her daughter, Laverne (Posey) Jordan and her husband, Patrick; her granddaughters, Deirdre (Jordan) King and her husband Jared and Heather Jordan; her sister Edna (Dove) Wood; and two great-grandchildren.
