Richard Espinosa

1929 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
Richard Espinosa entered into eternal rest on Monday, July 10th at 5pm at his home in Alamogordo, NM.

Richard was born December 1, 1929 to Luis and Lorenza (Ramirez) Espinosa in Chamberino, NM where he grew up.

He was married to his childhood sweetheart Amelia (Molly) Barela for 69 years, had five children, 10 grandchildren, 19 great- grandchildren, and 6 great-great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife Molly, daughters Rose Marie(Jacinto) Ruiz, Mary Jane Espinoza, sons Daniel (Norma) Espinosa and Fred (Katrinka) Espinosa.

He is preceded in death by his oldest son Louie Espinosa and great-granddaughter Airika Moore.

Richard was best known for his uncanny sense of humor. He had a way of relating his jokes to each person he knew always making them feel special. Every where he went, his friends and family appreciated his great compassion, care, and generosity to all.

His family could always rely on the steady leadership as the Espinosa Patriarch. He will be deeply missed.

Services are scheduled for Friday July 21st at 10am at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, 1240 S. Espina St., Las Cruces, NM.

A reception will follow there at Finley Hall. Family and friends are invited to attend.

The Espinosa family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements.
