  • 07/27/14--00:00: Obituary for MILLER
  • MILLER, RONALD LEE Age 74, a long time Albuquerque resident, died at his home July 15, 2014 with his beloved wife, Nancy, at his side, following a months-long battle with cancer. Ron moved with his parents and brother to Albuquerque in 1946 from his native Oklahoma. His late father, Arnold Miller, was a well-known home builder in Albuquerque, and Ron spent his high school summers working as a laborer on his father's construction projects, learning the profession. Ron graduated from Highland High School in 1957 and attended the University of New Mexico. Responding to the urge to build homes, Ron soon obtained his general contractor license and opened Ronald Miller Construction Co. Ron was known for his attention to detail, and he took special pride in the quality of his construction projects. He built custom homes in nearly every neighborhood of the city and, late in his career, he specialized in home construction in the Four Hills area. He also worked in rehabilitation of commericial properties all across the city. Though Ron's work schedule limited his time for hobbies, he found working in his yard relaxing. Ron was predeceased by his parents, Arnold and Joan Miller, and his brother, Larry. He is survived by his wife, Nancy and his nieces, Jennifer and Kathy. He also is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Gary A. and Patricia McVicker and their two daughters, Dianna Lynn Keiser and Lauren Lee McVicker. Ron was happiest while at home and will be missed by his loving family. Ron was buried at Sunset Memorial Park in a private ceremony at his request.

  • 07/27/14--00:00: Obituary for LARI
  • LARI, JOSEPH Joseph R. Lari Our precious son left us one year ago on 7/25/2013. The despair of that day will always be seared into our aching hearts. We were blessed to have Joseph for 9781 days. Every second of each day a memory, followed by the question, why? Joseph lived an adventurous life with each day a new pursuit - hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, sparring, exploring, working, laughing, learning, praying, loving. Joseph had a compassionate heart, a healing spirit and humility. His love for his son Dylan, his brother Daniel, his parents, family, friends and strangers was shared with silent intensity. Days prior to his unexpected death, Joseph affirmed his greatest love of God which brings us great peace. His Bible went with him wherever he lived. His healing embrace will always be with us as we close our eyes and call upon that memory. For those of us left to follow, we keep Joseph's spirit alive by sharing the blessed stories, experiences, words, and silent moments. In faith, we look forward to the day when we will be reunited with Joseph again in God's loving light, in Jesus' name.
