  • 07/25/14--00:00: Obituary for BLESSING
  • BLESSING, LARRY DEAN &Quot;D.B.&Quot; M.D. Our beloved Larry Blessing "DB" went Home to be with Jesus on Sunday, July 20, 2014. Larry was born in Bethany, Missouri to William Vodra and Lenora Bernice (Salmon) Blessing on October 23, 1942. Larry married Mary Jane Cox in 1959 and graduated with honors from Harrison High School in 1960. He received a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Biology and earned a Medical Doctor's degree from University of Missouri, Columbia in 1974. He attended the University of Kansas from 1974 through 1977 for his Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine. Following that, he returned to the University of Missouri for a Fellowship in Gastroenterology from 1977-1978. Larry was a dedicated doctor to his patients, loved being a physician and truly enjoyed his many years of practice. Those who worked with Dr. Blessing adored and admired him and were his dearest friends. He began blessing and saving lives in Albany, Missouri, continued his career in Morgantown, West Virginia and ultimately moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico where he finished his career as Chief Gastroenterologist at Lovelace Medical Center. After a long and satisfying career, Dr. Blessing retired in 1999 and within the same year became accepted as a member of The National Registry Of Who's Who. Larry's heart was remarkably big as he was a dear brother, husband, father, step-father, grandfather, and surrogate to those who needed a father. Larry had a grand sense of humor and wouldn't watch a movie without a bucket of buttered popcorn by his side. Larry spent his retirement years serving and loving his church family. Larry loved gardening and fondly reminisced on his years as a farmer; his tomatoes, sweet corn and green chile were unbeatable. Larry is survived by his loving wife of 17 years, Janet Blessing; his children, Christopher (Debbie) Blessing, Roxanna (Larry) Braaten, Paul (Sharon) Blessing, Brian Blessing, Samantha (Michael) Gabaldon and Chris (Lori) Partain; as well as 13 grandchildren; one great- grandchild and another Blessing expected to arrive next year. Larry D. Blessing was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Leta (Blessing) Landes; brother, Charles Blessing; sister, Beverly (Blessing) Shipers; and nephew, Gregory Blessing. Our quiet, funny and sweet "DB" will always hold a special place in our hearts. Celebration of Life Services will be held at Legacy Church's East Campus on Saturday, July 26th at 11 a.m. Legacy Church 4701 Wyoming Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109 (505) 433-5552

  • PORTER, CONNOR PATRICK June 27, 1997 - July 26, 2012 Two years ago our world was rocked when Connor, your dad (Pat Porter), and dear friend Connor Mantsch passed away together. You were such a sweet gift from God. You captured our hearts instantly and filled our lives with your beautiful smile, silly jokes, laughter, and so much love. We are thankful for each moment we had with you even though it was way too short. We are so grateful we will see you again in heaven, because you believed in Jesus. Our favorite writing of yours is, "I need to have a strong relationship with God and Christ to have a good life. That does not mean I will have a successful or happy life, but I do know with that I have a purpose. With purpose there is a sense of fulfillment and I am able to be content no matter what life throws at me." You are always in our hearts. We love you, Mom and Shannon

  • 07/26/14--00:00: Obituary for DEL CURTO
  • DEL CURTO, DANTE DEAN Age 35, journeyed home to be with the Lord on July 22, 2014. A life-long resident of New Mexico, Dante was born in Alamogordo, NM on October 28, 1978. He spent his early years in Vaughn, NM and graduated from high school in Moriarty, NM. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Arthur and Susan Del Curto, James and Nina George; a sweet little one he and Brandi lost before birth; his Father, George "Butch" Del Curto; his Godparents, George and Alice Luna; his niece, Lainey Lower. Dante is survived by his children, Trey, Devin, Audrey and their mom, Brandi Dillard. He loved them all with every drop of his being. He is also survived by his mother, Sue Del Curto; brother, Bryan and sister-in-law, Barbara Del Curto; step-mother, JoAnn Del Curto; dear family friends, John Recio, his in-laws, Gene and Vicky Lower, Ryan and Lucia Lower; nephews, Ivan and Desiree Del Curto, Nathan and Kristen Del Curto, Dalton Lower; great nephews and nieces, Jacob, Santiago, Lyla and Sophia Del Curto, with two more on the way. He is also survived by a multitude of loving aunts, uncles, primos and primas. Dante's trademarks were his sense of humor and his smile. He enjoyed making others smile and laugh and if you made the mistake of doing something he found funny or entertaining, he was sure to turn it into a story and share it with others. Without fail, over time, the story was sure to grow and might be slightly embellished so to entertain his listeners even more. For reasons unknown and to the chagrin of many around him Dante was an enthusiastic and life-long Denver Broncos fan. He would revel when his team beat yours and couldn't wait for the next game if the Broncos happened to lose. In short, if Dante was ribbing you about something, you knew that he loved you. For the past 15 years, Dante committed his career to the Dept. of Veterans' Affairs, working to serve the veteran community through clinical research with the Cooperative Studies Program. He enjoyed his job and especially loved being around his friends and co-workers. He was proud to work there and he was proud to serve those who served our country. In recent years, Dante found a new love for his Catholic faith and had committed himself to serving Jesus Christ and his people. He was very involved in the ACTS ministry and worked tirelessly to help other men come to know Jesus Christ and to experience the love of the Lord and the love of others he'd found through his relationship with the Lord and his involvement in ACTS. He gained so many friends in the process and helped bring many people closer to the Lord though his love and service. The most holy rosary will be recited at 7:00 pm, Monday, July 28, 2014 at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, 1502 Sara Road SE, Rio Rancho, NM. Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 10:30 am, Tuesday, July 29, 2014 also at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. Interment will follow at Vista Verde Memorial Park, Rio Rancho. Pallbearers will be Trey Del Curto, Nathan Del Curto, Ivan Del Curto, Ryan Lower, Adam Sais, Steve Tapia, and John Recio. Honorary pallbearers will be his brothers from the ACTS community and each of his dear friends and family.
