Banes, Richard E. "Dick" - Farmington  
Richard "Dick" E. Banes, 71, of Farmington, passed away on Saturday, July 18, 2015, in Farmington. He was born Sept. 21, 1943, in Albuquerque, to Wiley and Elsie Banes. Dickie and his brother, Tommy, spent many a summer at Teelawuket Guest Ranch at the upper end of Vallecito Lake, near Durango, Colo. During these times, he learned to cinch a saddle, rope a horse, fly-fish on the river and rescue the tourists who came to spend a week as a cowboy. Could this be where he learned to take a swig of whiskey or sneak a smoke? LOL. Dick attended New Mexico Military Institute and Fort Lewis College. He owned an Enco Service Station in Albuquerque for a number of years. He later became the Executive Vice President of The Albuquerque Association of Credit Management. Dick married his Jane on Jan. 15, 1971, in Albuquerque. In 1979, they moved to the Durango area and bought a store on the New Mexico-Colorado border and called it Dick and Jane's Place. During their years at this location, they became the center stone of Bondad and of ones who traveled U.S. Highway 550. Dick was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Jane (Janie); brother, Tom Banes (Nancy) of Albuquerque; sister, Nancy Calahan (Gordon) of Lakewood, Colo.; niece, Stacey Banes of Albuquerque; nephews, Brandon Banes (Alicia) of Albuquerque, Devin Ferebee of Lakewood, and Kurtis Ferebee of Denver, Colo.; and great nieces and nephews, Samantha Finlayson and Megan Finlayson, Avery Banes, Matthew Pisa, Riley Pisa of Albuquerque and Dylan Ferebee of Lakewood. He is also survived by his dearest friends, Tyra van Bell, all her family, Larry Gammon, a "TON" of friends we refer to as family and San Juan Rehab, Carol Cherry and her staff, along with his two cohorts, Terry Roach and Len Leonard. Cremation has taken place, and the service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 25, at The Oasis, 1601 N. Dustin Ave., Suite B in Farmington. Dick's celebration of life will be officiated by Tom Yost and assistant James Junes.

Box 360, Kirtland, NM 87417, or a charity of your choice. Dick's care is entrusted to Brewer, Lee and Larkin Funeral Home, 103 E. Ute St. in Farmington, 505-325-8688.
