George Candelaria Obituary
Candelaria, George

George Candelaria, 61, passed away May 11, 2016, in the presence of his family after a courageous battle with cancer. George was raised in Albuquerque, spent many years in Las Vegas, Nevada, and recently moved to Santa Fe to join his family.

He was preceded in death in 1973 by his father, Trancito Candelaria.

George is survived by his mother, Teresita Vigil Candelaria; sister, Gloria Candelaria Bosson (husband Richard C. Bosson retired Supreme Court Justice); brother Trancito Candelaria; nephew Christopher Bosson; niece Monica Candelaria (Bosson) Groh (husband Bill Groh and children Varenna and William); Aunt Mary Vigil Aragon of Albuquerque; and numerous cousins.

Most recently George worked at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino as building manager, and previously at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Earlier, George was an electrician with Albuquerque Public Schools and attended West Mesa High School.

George was a kind, gentle and generous soul, a friend to all and an enemy to none. He will be deeply missed by his family and many friends.

Services will be on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 8:00 am at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Albuquerque.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Gabaldon Mortuary.
