Lorenzo ( Lore) Rubio 46, passed away March 9, 2011 at Mountain View Regional Hospital. Lore was the tenth child born to Salvador Rubio and Teresa Borrego on August 10, 1964 in Las Cruces, NM. He attended Las Cruces Public Schools. He never married but at the time before his passing, he'd made plans to marry Jennifer Johannesmeir (the mother of his first child). Lore enjoyed playing his guitar and singing. He always made up silly little songs for his kids and grandkids, and he also gave all of them silly little nicknames. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys Fan, and will be playing football up in Heaven #10 jersey, when he's not playing guitar and singing with his Dad, brother Ramon and niece Serina that is. He loved to get together with family at cook-outs where he'd later play his guitar with his brothers Martin and Jimmy, never failing to play " Stairway To Heaven " one of his very favorite songs, as well as ours. Lore was always artistically inclined, and had a passion for tattoos. When he realized he wasn't getting better, and he didn't have any fight left in him, he wanted a tattoo that read "game over " on his forehead. What a sense of humor! His sense of humor was one of his greatest strengths. He was really smart and witty, a great listener, a wonderful, giving son, dad, grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. Though he put on a tough facade, he was really very gentle, a warrior still, but with a tender heart. Lore will most be remembered by his love of music, and the capacity in which he loved.

Lore is survived by his mother Teresa B. Rubio whom he lovingly called "Ama", his partner Jennifer Johansmeier, four daughters Jessica D. Rubio, Destiny L. Rubio, Caitlyn and Shayla Stoehner, a son Lawrence Rubio, and a granddaughter Erika Aguilar whom he called " Lupita Gumbita ", his goddaughter Tanya Rubio, and by his adopted children and grandchildren, Marina Leonard and her children Elijah and Jolene, Nicole Leonard and her children Abraham, Patrick and Ivan, Valerie and Jamie Leonard.
