Thomas E. Montoya Jr. Obituary
Montoya, Thomas E. Jr.

Thomas E. Montoya, Jr., age 95 was reunited with his wife of 56 years on April 12, 2016. He was a devoted and loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

Thomas was a lifelong and the oldest native resident of the village of Corrales, NM. He will be honored in the library with a framed memorial depicting his street: Paseo de Tomas Montoya, (the street is located at the north end of Loma Larga in Corrales). As a historical icon whose family settled in Corrales in the early 1800's, Thomas offers significance of the village remembering the Spanish farmers who settled the land creating a safe place for their families. Thomas retired from the Albuquerque Board of Education. He also served in the United States Army Air Force from October 1942 to November 1945, during World War II.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Emily; daughter, Clara Mae; his parents, Tomas and Sinforosa; siblings, Jose Felipe and wife Eva, Mela and husband Jose Gallegos, Sinforosa and husband Jose Domingo Gurule, Priscilla and husband, Emilio Lopez, and Emilia and husband Ely Barela.

Thomas is survived by his children, Al and wife Viola, Tito, Mary and Husband Cip Salas; six grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He will be greatly missed by all.

A Rosary will be recited today (Sunday) at 5:00 p.m. at San Ysidro Catholic Church in Corrales, NM. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Monday at 10:00 a.m. also at the Church. Interment will follow at San Ysidro Cemetery in Corrales. Pallbearers will be Mike Montoya, Brian Montoya, Tyler Montoya, Josiah Cordova, Jordan Dominguez, and Tommy Salas. Honorary Bearers will be Victor, Santi, John, Christopher, Connor, and Clay.
