He will be greatly missed. He is survived by children Cynthia, John, Diana, Patrick, numerous grandchildren, and a dear and close friend, Louise.

He was preceded in death by his father, Fabian Pacheco; step-father, John Carrillo; and mother, Arabella (Baca) Carrillo. A private memorial service was held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Kingman, Arizona, on Feb. 12, 2015.

Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
