Simon Chavez Carrillo Obituary

Simon Chavez Carrillo, 60, passed away on Sept. 12, 2015. He was born on Jan. 15, 1955, in Watsonville, California to Fidencio and Gregoria (Chavez) Carrillo.

He married Pamela Kennedy in 1972 and has a daughter, Rebecca (Thomas) Spanggaard with children, Hannah and Abigail of Silkeborg, Denmark; three sons, Simon K (Erika) with children, Caleb and Ellie of Arlington, Texas, Michael K. of Alamogordo, N.M. and Gabriel K. of Ft. Worth, Texas.

He married Sandra Mathews in 1999 and acquired three step sons, Michael (Connie) of Kansas City, MO; Christopher (Trina) of Amarillo, TX and Geoffrey (Yllylle) of Silver City, NM. Since then he has become Grandpa to Taylor, Gabriella, Logan, Tayden, Reagan, Genna, Trevor and Alyna.

He is survived by all his children and grandchildren; his two sisters, Margie Franco of Tularosa, N.M. and Dorothy Vasquez of Watsonville, CA and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Simon grew up in the Monterey Bay area of California before moving to the Tularosa Basin in the 1970's. He was employed by Presto for many years before working for HeyCo and Glover Farms harvesting pecans across the area. In 2005 Simon and Sandy purchased and operated Ultimate Linings Plus. Simon enjoyed every aspect of his life -- outdoor activities, welding, trucks, tractors, watching western movies and he was a gun enthusiast. He always looked for the good in people and put others first. That was his belief in being a good Christian.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Fidencio and Gregoria Carrillo, five brothers and two sisters.

A Memorial will be conducted at 6 p.m., Friday, Sept. 18, 2015 at Hamilton O'Dell with his son Simon K. Carrillo officiating.

The Carrillo family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Hamilton-O'Dell Funeral Home to direct the funeral services. Cremation has taken place.
