James Paulk Jr. Obituary
James David Paulk Jr., 66, lifelong Deming resident passed away Tuesday, March 4, 2014, at his home, where he was cared for by his family. Per his wishes, a private celebration of life will be held at a later date. James was born Aug. 8, 1947, in Mesilla Park, N.M., to James D. Paulk and Virginia Prpich. James designed and built many custom homes and commercial properties in the Deming and Luna County area, leaving an artistically distinguished mark. Survivors include his daughters, Lisa Karr (George) of Euless, Texas, and Lori Paulk of Las Cruces; sons, James Damian Paulk (Veronica) of Las Cruces and Ryan Paulk of Deming; seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild, sister, Debra Curtis, and brothers, Mark Paulk and Kevin Sarratt. James was preceded in death by his parents, James D. Paulk and Virginia Prpich Sarratt, nephew Adam Curtis and friend, Apolinar Muñoz. The family expresses their sincere gratitude to his caregiver, Kathy Karr, Ambercare, and the numerous health care providers who cared for him, as well as family and friends who kept him in their prayers. "In the end, what matters is that you've seen and danced in the rain. Others may not see it - and think you're crazy, go ahead and do it anyways.... Explore your own ideas, live the dream, it's tough, but necessary sometimes." Descanse en paz jefito querido - El Rebelde sin Causa...
