Jose Gilberto Apodaca


1933 - 2014 Obituary Condolences
Jose Gilberto Apodaca, better know to all as "Nene", 80, passed away on Saturday, November 8, 2014, in Amarillo, TX after a long battle with cancer. Mr. Apodaca was born on November 18, 1933, at Lagunita, N.M.
He was a member of St. Anne's and St. Mary's Catholic Church. He worked in the construction business for many years and had his own lawn mower repair service. He lead a full and interesting life and met so many people along his road. When you sat and talked with him, he had a story for every conversation. Some amazing, some unbelievable, but all true, and always holding your attention, because you wanted to hear the ending.
He is survived by his two daughters and their husbands; Loretta & Michael Bates and Catherine & Douglas Case, all of Las Vegas, NV; four grandchildren; Melissa, Nichole, Rudy and Isabel, five great grandchildren, a brother; Joe Lalo Apodaca and wife, Rose of Tucumcari and a sister; Gloria Mulinix and husband, Dennis of Albuquerque.
He was preceded in death by his son; Rudy Apodaca, his parents; Pilar and Isabel Apodaca, siblings; Della Martinez, Salomon Apodaca, Mary Sedillo, Leodoro Apodaca, Francisco Apodaca, Corrine Martinez, Rudy Onofre Apodaca, Agapita Hernandez and Juan Apodaca.
Rosary will be recited on Wednesday, November 12, 2014, at 6 P.M. and Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated on Thursday, November 13, 2014, at 10 A.M. at St. Anne's Catholic Church. Pallbearers will be Michael Bates, Douglas Case, Lawrence Hernandez, Ricky Apodaca, Robert Apodaca & David Martinez. Burial will be in the Tucumcari Memorial Park Cemetery.
