JOHN JOSEPH CIGLIANO, JR. On May 9, 2014, John Joseph Cigliano, Jr. went to be with the Lord after a courageous battle against cancer. His victory is complete as he is now in the presence of His precious Lord and Savior. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Nancy B. Cigliano, his daughter Donna S. Gonzales, her husband William, grandaughter Maria and her fianc‚ Mike Padilla, both of Washington, D.C., his grandson Giovanni, a graduate student at Goldsmiths, University of London, his daughter Marie A. Noyes, her husband Barry, and grandson Joshua of Childress, Texas, and his daughter Tina L. Cigliano-Sisneros, her husband Stan, both of Santa Fe, NM and grandson Marcus, a student at New Mexico State University. John loved his family fiercely and considered them his pride and joy. John proudly served his country in the Air Force and Army National Guard and retired from the New Mexico State Police Department. He loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and served for many years as a leader in his local church. He loved to travel; he and his wife enjoyed traveling and rv'ing throughout the US, Mexico and Canada for 20 years. John loved all animals and passed that love for animals to his children and grandchildren. He never hesitated to help someone that he thought needed a helping hand and enjoyed sharing his faith with any who would listen. John will be greatly missed by his family and friends. We wait with expectation to be reunited again.
