Andy J. Dominguez Obituary
Officer Andy J. Dominguez, 39, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2011, in his home in Alamogordo. He was born Jan. 15, 1971, in Alamogordo to Melcor M. Dominguez and the late Isaura C. Dominguez.
Officer Andy J. Dominguez was a well-known man in our community. Before he became a police officer, he worked for First National Bank in Alamogordo starting in high school through 2001. He met many people and made many friends while working there.
When he was hired by the city of Alamogordo with the Department of Public Safety, everyone in the community supported him in his choice of a new career.
Andy again met many new people in the community and he helped anyone and everyone. If someone needed a helping hand, whether it was while he was on or off duty, Andy was there. When he wasn't working or giving someone a hand, he loved to spend all his time with his lovely family. His children are very involved in sports and when they had a game, he was there watching or helping coach their team.
He was preceded in death by his loving mother Isaura C. Dominguez, father-in-law Jose A. "Gus" Payan, grandfather Genaro Castillo, uncle Jimmy Castillo and his nephew Jesse Castilleja.
Survivors include his wife of 20 years, Eva M. Dominguez; three children, Desiree Dominguez, of Portales, and Andria Dominguez and Andrew J. Dominguez, both of Alamogordo; a brother, Melcor, and his wife, Lisa Dominguez, of Alamogordo; sister Adriana Dorame, of Texas; and nephews Adam Castilleja, Joey Castilleja, LJ Dominguez and MJ Dominguez, all of Texas.
Andy is also survived by his mother-in-law Eva S. Payan, of Alamogordo; two brothers-in-law, Luis Payan and Andrew Payan, both of Arizona; and many great friends, including Lerien Hoyt and her husband, Dan, Todd Carlin and his wife, Nancy, Ricky Cooper and his wife, Rhonda, Sean Jett and his wife, Tracey, Rex Ellison and his wife, Cathy, and his best friend and sister, Kathy Torres.
To all of his buddies with DPS, Tracy, Bobby, Carlos and Scott, he truly loved you all, as well as his Alamogordo High School family, including Bill Hays and his wife, Lori; Coach Stockton and his wife, September; Darin Jaramillo and her husband, Tony; Mrs. D.; Pat Denny; Mrs. Kilmar and her husband; and, of course, all his friends at First National Bank in Alamogordo.
