Gutierrez, Gilbert  
Gilbert, 84, was born in Alamogordo, N.M., on Oct. 13, 1931, to Juan Jose and Aurelia Gutierrez, both of N.M. He was the youngest of 7 brothers. He grew up with his other six brothers in Alamogordo, and later in Los Angeles, El Paso, and La Luz as his father was employed with the Southern Pacific Railroad. Gilbert served in the US Army during the Korean Conflict and came back to complete his high school education. Gilbert was blessed with the opportunity to complete his high school education through the Southern Baptist Home Mission Board at the Valley Baptist Academy in Brownsville, Texas. This is where he met his soulmate, Henrietta Davila, who was also completing her education there. They were married on Oct. 13, 1956, in Gilbert's hometown of Alamogordo, N.M. The couple lived in the states of Calif., Texas and N.M., throughout years of their marriage. Gilbert operated the family farm business together with his father in La Luz when first married. Then the couple moved to Whittier, Calif., where they both worked in fish canneries. He later worked as Landscaping Foreman at the Valley Baptist Academy in Harlingen, Texas and finally as a Custodian for Alamogordo Public Schools where he retired. Gilbert was preceded in death by his wife of sixty years Henrietta Gutierrez who passed away recently on Jan. 13, 2016, and his parents, Juan Jose & Aurelia Gutierrez; six brothers, Albert, Ernest, Steve, Richard, Fidel, and Rudy; several dear sisters and brothers-in-law on both sides of the family; and his infant son David Gutierrez.

(Valdez) Hays, Cleo V.  
Cleo Valdez Hays was born on Sept. 3, 1939 and went to the Lord on March 22, 2016. The impact she had on this world will be felt forever. Cleo was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, mother-in-law and friend. Her life was about helping others and making those close to her better people. Her biggest pleasure in life was simply being surrounded by family. Material items meant very little to Cleo. She always preferred a phone call or visit to a monetary gift and gave more than she ever received here on earth. Her treasures were her family and the devotion she had to our Lord. Earthly possessions are now replaced with the fortune she will be eternally granted in the kingdom of Heaven. We will forever miss the strength she has given this family. The pain that she has gone through is now healed as her soul has ascended into the loving arms of the Lord. As we make our journey through life, we seek comfort in the fact that we have a new Angel to guide us, an Angel with magnificent wings and two pain free legs to land on, one who will show us the path when we arrive. Her heart gave to others until it had no more to give. All the tears shed are symbols of the love that we will always have for you. Your memory will forever be ingrained in our hearts and will look forward to the day that we once again can touch your beautiful face. Cleo is survived by her husband, Bill Hays of 59 years, her four children, Teresa Hays, Susanna Ashe, Linda Sowell, and Billy R. Hays; six grandchildren, Jennifer Coyazo, Charlene Ashe, Kristi Clifford, Heather Ashe, Billy M. Hays, Ryan Hays, and Sean Hays; five great grandchildren, Daniel Coyazo, Aidan Coyazo, JoJo Coyazo, Promize Coyazo, and Stephen Clifford; two sons-in-law, David Ashe and Tony Sowell; one daughter-in-law, Lori Hays; one great son-in-law, David Clifford; and one great daughter-in-law, Andrea Hays. We are all better people because you existed. Rosary will be held at Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel at 10 a.m., Tuesday, March 29, 2016. The funeral service will be held at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, March 29, 2016 at Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel with Joe Bryant officiating. Burial will follow at Immaculate Conception Catholic Cemetery. The Hays family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the funeral services. To sign the online register book, please visit www.alamogordofuneralhome.org.

Elida's passion in life was listening to music, dancing, and enjoying life. Our family would like to thank those who cared for her as she struggled and fought her disease to the very end. The poem below says it all and hope that this will give everyone, family and friends, comfort. God's Garden God looked around his garden And found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth, And saw your tired face. He put His arms around you And lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew that you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered "Peace be thine." It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone... For part of us went with you The day God called you home. Burial services will follow in Del Rio, Texas at a future date. The Mejia family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Hamilton-O'Dell Funeral Home to direct the arrangements.

Wood, Gary  
Gary Wood, formerly of Cloudcroft, NM, passed away in Alamogordo on March 24, 2016, after battling a lifetime chronic illness. Gary was with his wife, Gloria, and son, Paul, in Casa Arena after a short stay in Gerald Champion Regional Hospital. Gary Robert Wood was born Sept. 5, 1944, in South Bend, Indiana to Virgil Allison and Dietta Ruth Wood, who preceded their son in death. He married Gloria Chesnik in Lubbock, Texas, on October 18, 1979. Gary is survived by two sisters, Alice Luker, Oceano, Calif; and DeeDee Reilly, Kent, Wash. He is also survived by various nieces and nephews including, Jon Luker and his family in Arroyo Grande, Calif; Scott Luker and his family in Henderson, Nev.; Todd Luker and his family Fresno, Calif.; and Bonnie Woods and her family in Orcutt, Calif. He is also survived by his son, Paul and Clare Chesnik, his grandchildren, Justin, Michael and Elizabeth and four great grandchildren, all of Charlestown, Md. Gary went to schools in California and graduated with a Bachelor of Zoology from California State University, Long Beach. His lifelong interest in butterflies and beetles was the basis for his life's work throughout California, Arizona and New Mexico's art circuit where he was well known as the "Butterfly Man", exhibiting his unique butterfly and beetle art pieces, including jewelry out of butterfly wings and beetles. In years later, in the galleries that he and Gloria built in Cloudcroft, he continued his jewelry, silversmithing and metal sculpture work and became well known for his well-informed, scientifically correct displays. He also enjoyed the opportunity of teaching, taking his butterflies and beetles to the School for the Visual Handicapped and Cloudcroft schools to show the kids. Gary was an influential presence in the small mountain community of Cloudcroft, serving on the Village Board of Trustees, Chamber of Commerce, the Otero County Electric Co-op and Kiwanis. He was named Citizen of the Year in 1987 by the Chamber of Commerce. He enjoyed many interests, mostly chess and poker, the highlight of chess competition being the several times he beat Gov. Gary Johnston at matches in Cloudcroft and the many poker nights, 36 years worth, in Cloudcroft with his poker buddies. He also was deeply involved in writing a philosophy book and in later years had a monthly column on philosophy in the Mountain Monthly. Gary and Gloria built several businesses in Cloudcroft in their years being active in the community including the Copper Butterfly, Mountain Foto, the Mountain Monthly newspaper, Gypsy's Wagon, Auntie Gloria's Fudge shop, the Whistlestop Ice Cream shop and Artisan Alley. They retired in 2004 and moved to Alamogordo, closing out an era of community leadership and stewardship. Friends and family will celebrate Gary's complete enjoyment of life on Wednesday, March 30, 2016, at Allen and Carol Henry's Cloudcroft home (MM26, Hwy 82 E) beginning at 5 p.m. Please bring your memories and let us all enjoy one more time together.
