  • 06/15/14--00:00: Obituary for PISTO
  • PISTO, ROBERT ROCCO Robert Rocco Pisto March 13, 1921 - June 6, 2014 Bob passed away peacefully at his home in Albuquerque, NM, with family at his side, on the 70th anniversary of D-Day. At age 93, we can simply say "natural causes." Bob was born in Cambria, Wyoming, the eldest of Tony and Grace Pisto's five children. He lived briefly in Sheridan before his family settled in Gebo, where he remained through high school. He attended Gebo High and later Hot Springs County High School in Thermopolis, graduating in 1939 as class Salutatorian. During the Great Depression, he served in the Civilian Conservation Corps, fighting coal fires and sending his earnings home to help his family. He attended the University of Wyoming for two years before joining the Army Air Corps as a Second Lieutenant. He piloted B-24 bombers for the remainder of WWII, flying missions over northern Germany and earning the EAME Air Medal with two campaign stars. He remained in the Air Force Reserve until 1970, retiring with the rank of Major. Bob completed his civil engineering degree after the war and married the love of his life, Margaret Elizabeth Laird, in December 1947. He was a lifetime member of Sigma XI and the Elks Club and was active in Rotary and other civic organizations. Bob and Margie had two children, Laird Anthony Pisto (wife Julie Bauer Pisto) of Gig Harbor, WA and Helen Denise Pisto, of Albuquerque, NM and two much loved grandchildren, Kirsten Marie Pisto of Ballard, WA and Anthony B. Pisto of Chehalis, WA. He is predeceased by his wife of nearly 50 years, Margaret, brother David Pisto, and sisters Mary Lou Harbicht and Helen Cabre. He is survived by his children, grandchildren and beloved brother Wayne Pisto, also of Albuquerque. Bob's sense of family included every Pisto in this country and Italy, as well as Margie's extensive clan of Lairds, Hayes and numerous kissing cousins. Bob was close to his mother-in-law, Viva Laird, her brothers Buster & Lourie Hayes and Margie's siblings, of whom Eloise Shaw (Worland, WY) is the sole survivor. He was absolutely considered a member of Herm and Lil Bauer's family (SLC, UT) as well. Bob was a land surveyor and licensed civil engineer, working on transmission lines, power plants, dams, nuclear facilities and a variety of projects in the Western states, Alaska and Canada. Bob and Margie had homes (and lots of parties) in Casper, WY, Quesnel, BC, Salt Lake City, UT, Richland, WA and Idaho Falls, ID before retiring and moving to Albuquerque to concentrate on golfing and gardening. He made life-long friends in every town and on every project, notably those he designated "The Big Job." Bob and Margie shared a joy for life and participated to the fullest. To watch them dance together was enthralling - and made you believe in forever love. They golfed for fun and with passion. Both won tournaments, shot several holes-in-one and were members of many country clubs, including Casper Country Club, Willow Creek Country Club, Idaho Falls Country Club, and Tanoan Country Club. They played golf throughout the US, Canada and Northern Europe. Bob golfed regularly through age 91 and thought it was sissy to use a cart. He listened to every Wyoming Cowboys broadcast except when attending games in Laramie. He eventually came to forgive his children for not choosing the University of Wyoming. Bob loved to drive the vast open stretches of the American West and could tell you to the minute the time it would take to drive between any two points - and the best places to stop for pie along the way. In his youth he spent entire summers roaming the Big Horn Mountains, fishing, hiking, camping and exploring. His love of the outdoors lasted his entire life. He passed his considerable drawing skills along to his granddaughter Kirsten, and his gardening skills to his grandson Tony. He was a friend and mentor to generations of kids, those in the family and those in the neighborhood. He had a great sense of humor, and was known to invest hours pulling off practical jokes on friends and family. Many have not fully recovered to this day. Following cremation in Albuquerque, a big party and celebration of Bob's life will take place later this summer in Thermopolis, WY, where he will be buried alongside his lifelong love and best friend Margie. Remembrances may be made to the University of Wyoming Foundation, or any charity of your choice. The family wishes to thank Bob's many caregivers and especially his hospice team from Advantage Home Care & Hospice who all provided tremendous support over his final months.

  • 06/15/14--00:00: Obituary for O'BRIEN
  • O'BRIEN, PAUL died Monday, June 9, 2014 at Anna Kaseman Hospice Care. He was born in Dayton, OH, on October 12, 1923; the son of Joseph and Ethel (Robbins) O'Brien. During WWII, he served as an Army Air Corps bombardier/navigator, and was the last surviving member of an 11-man crew that took part in the first B-29 bombing missions over the Japanese homeland. He was wounded in January 1945 and, after 30 months of treatment and rehabilitation in Army hospitals, he was retired for disability at the age of 23. His military awards included the Silver Star, Air Medal and Purple Heart. During his long hospitalization, he married a pretty Army nurse named Dorothy "Dottie" Smith, and their lives became one life until Paul's death nearly seven decades later. Paul is survived by his beloved Dottie; a daughter, Kat Tiano; a son, Daniel O'Brien; a son, Sean O'Brien and wife Liz; a daughter, Megan DelaO and husband Eloy; seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings; a son, David O'Brien; a daughter-in-law, Rondolyn O'Brien; and a son-in-law, Anthony Tiano. Mr. O'Brien held engineering degrees from the University of Dayton and the University of New Mexico. He worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory from 1951 to 1959, and at Sandia National Laboratories from 1959 until his retirement in 1989. In 2012, he observed the rare milestone of having been "retired" longer than he'd been alive! His personal life centered around his family. He and Dottie spent countless hours supporting the youthful activities of their children and grandchildren. They traveled widely during their "empty-nest" years, for as long as Paul's infirmities would permit. They were avid duplicate bridge players, and both attained the rating of Gold Life Master in 2013. It was largely through the efforts of their children that they were able to maintain an active lifestyle into their later years. Paul considered himself to be one of the luckiest members of Tom Brokaw's "Greatest Generation". His proudest achievement was in having helped to raise successful, compassionate children. Captain O'Brien's cremated remains will be interred at the Santa Fe National Cemetery in Santa Fe. A family celebration of his life will be scheduled later. Arrangements by Direct Funeral Services, 2919 4th ST. NW. ABQ. 505-343-8008.

  • MCMANAMAN, JACOB L. Jacob Lawrence McManaman was born December 3, 1977. He died on May 11, 2014 at the age of 36. Jacob's body gave out on Mother's Day, after a half a year's struggle with cancer. He leaves behind his wife Tamara McManaman; daughter Myah McManaman; mother-in-law Verta Cooper; parents Patricia McManaman-Loucks and Laurence Loucks. He also leaves many cousins, aunts and uncles, extended family, and many friends and colleagues. Jacob will be missed by many, for his intelligent competence, his sense of humor, his friendly aide, his dependability, his compassion, and his love. Jacob took on responsibility not only for his own life, but also for his family and friends and fellow beings. Through his hard work, his abilities and his caring, he was able to make our lives better. Jacob was a true renaissance man. He was a master communicator (an advocate of 'the courageous conversation'), a musician, an actor, a cook, a mediator, a teacher, an avid cyclist, a brewmaster, and his extensive computer knowledge kept him in demand constantly, at work and with family and friends. Jacob worked hard to support his family, in the Air Force, at Schreiber Foods, and finally at Sandia Labs. While working full time, he earned two degrees online. First his Bachelors in Computer Science and then his Masters in Computer Security. Jacob loved his life here with his family and he fought to stay with us as long as he could. Jacob, we miss you, but are glad you are no longer in pain. Myah said, "You are the best daddy ever."
