Joseph Lloyd Liera Obituary
JOSEPH LLOYD LIERA Our beloved Joseph Lloyd Liera passed away from this life at the age of 56, on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at his home on the Cahuilla Indian Reservation in Anza, California. Joseph was born on August 8, 1956, at the Sandia U.S. Army hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Jose L. Liera, father, and Virginia V. Clarke-Liera, mother. Joseph was preceded in death by his father, Jose "Joe" Liera, and is survived by his mother, Virginia, and many relatives. Joseph attended the California School for the Deaf in Riverside, California, and learned many living skills, as well as how to communicate through sign language. After his schooling, he was employed as an assembler of electrical components for some time. "Punky," which Joseph was affectionately called by his family, was a creative and gifted artist who painted ceramics, built bird houses, constructed and painted delicate model cars made from recycled cereal boxes and other household items, and worked to craft a multitude of artworks throughout his life. Joseph enjoyed building fences and working the cattle with his father and his relatives. Joseph's artistry, sense of humor, and thoughtfulness brought much joy to his family. Joseph will be laid to rest on Monday, February 18, 2013, at the Cahuilla Indian Reservation Cemetery. Mass will be held at 10 a.m. at the Lady of the Snows Catholic Church, with a graveside service and lunch to follow at the Cahuilla Indian Reservation, Anza, California.
