Cooksey, Ronald Earl  
A great man, devoted husband, father and grandfather who left this world with all of his family around him on May 24th, 2016, and was sent to heaven as an angel to serve his God. Ronald Earl Cooksey was born on March 22, 1945, in Reno, Nev., to Roland and Ruth (Stuhr) Cooksey. Ron lived in Tularosa since 1958 where he graduated from Tularosa High School in 1964. Ronald served in the Army from April 1965 to April 1968, spending 31 months in Germany. After returning from the service, he later joined the Army National Guard in Alamogordo. In 1982, Ron became Active Guard Reserve and served as Charlie Battery Supply Sergeant until he retired in 1999 in Alamogordo, N.M. Ron was also a member of many organizations during his lifetime. He was in the Amigos Club, Tularosa Optimist Club, American Legion Post 108, and the Tularosa Lion's Club. He also served 12 years on the Tularosa Board of Education. Presently he is a member of the Tularosa Volunteer Fire Department and a Village of Tularosa Trustee. Ronald and his wife Debbie, also owned and operated C&C Sanitation for 11 years. In 2002, Ron went to work at the Inn of the Mountain Gods and later transferred over to Casino Apache Travel Center as Vault Supervisor. In September 2005, Ron had to quit at Casino Apache Travel Center due to developing Pancreatic Cancer in stage 4. But even when Ron was told he had 5 months to live, that did not stop him from beating all odds of survival. Ron won is battle with Pancreatic Cancer, but 3 years later he developed Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. While taking treatments for the Lymphoma, Ron had a massive heart attack and had a triple bypass surgery. Ron survived that and another bout of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but in August of 2015 he again developed Pancreatic Cancer and was unable to take treatments. Ron was such an inspiration to his family, friends and coworkers along with the surrounding community. Ron never missed a chance to try and help other cancer patients. Whether it was holding their hand and crying with them or giving them that speech about kicking that horrible beast in the butt and winning that battle, he never gave up even when he was so sick he could hardly walk. There was many times that right after chemo treatment he would hear that fire alarm and jump in that truck to drive to the fire. Some of the Junior Fire Fighters would call him "Unstoppable Ron", but to our family he was our Superman. He taught his kids how to hunt and he never missed a chance to get together as a family. That was Ron's favorite thing to do: camping with the family. He also enjoyed traveling with his friends Manny and MaryHelen Alonzo. Another one of Ron's favorite things to do was to play dominos (Mexican Train). Ron taught all his kids and his friends how to play, but we all had to play by the Cooksey Rules not the ones that came with the game. Ron spent many nights playing with his friends Manny and MaryHelen Alonzo and Margie and Randy Bouldin. Ron was always passionate about taking on tasks and completing them to the best of his abilities and his goal was to live life to the fullest. Ron is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Deborah; three daughters, Angela M. Morales (Manuel) of Las Cruces, N.M., Tammy A. Mendez (Mario Flores) of El Paso, Texas, and Monica R. Cooksey (Sammy Anderson) of Alamogordo, N.M.; two sons, Ronald Chad Cooksey and Kyle L. Cooksey of Tularosa, N.M., and Pablo Mendez of Tularosa, N.M., who was brought to Ron through marriage but was just like a son to him; one brother, Jimmie Cooksey of Tularosa and one sister Judy Mayne (Charles) of Salt Lake City; along with ten grandchildren and three great grandchildren and his faithful companions Jojo and Rose. He is preceded in death by his granddaughter, Marisa Vickery; his mother, Ruth E. Cooksey and his father, Roland H. Cooksey. The family will greet friends from 6 to 8 p.m., on Friday, June 3, 2016, at the Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel. Services for Ronald Cooksey will be conducted at the Alamogordo Funeral Home Chapel on Saturday, June 4, 2016, at 10 a.m., with Reverend Victor Colton officiating. A memorial service will be conducted at the Veteran's Memorial Park in Tularosa following the funeral service with full Military honors provided by the New Mexico Army National Guard. A dinner has been planned at the Tularosa Community Center. Pallbearers include Valerie Mendez, Marcus Mendez, Manny Morales, Pablo Mendez, Sammy Anderson, and Arty Salazar. Honorary pallbearers are the members of the Tularosa Fire Department. The Cooksey family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the services.
