Thais, Willie B.

Willie B. Thais, 88, went to be with our Lord on Wednesday, February 22, 2017.

He was predeceased by his parents Willie and Maria Thais, sister Jennie Aragon, and son-in-law Jerald Lujan.

Mr. Thais is survived by his wife of 67 years Leonor Moya; daughters, Mary Lopez (Aristeo), Angie Lopez and her husband James, Felajane Romero and her husband Manuel, Dorrie Zamora and her husband David, Sandra Sanchez-Lujan (Jerald) and JoAnn Thais; 16 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren.

He served as a reservist with the Army Reserves, and retired from the City of Albuquerque. Mr. Thais was a musician and played accordion for many choirs including Holy Rosary, Holy Family, and Nativity. His love of music extended to visiting the Senior Centers just to listen to the beautiful music; a special thank you to caregiver, Darlene Pacheco, for the love and support.
