Jessie Crespin

On Thursday, Dec.3, 2020, Jessie M. Crespin, of Los Lunas, loving husband, father of two, grandfather of six and great-grandfather of seven, passed away at the age of 71.

Jessie was born on March 20, 1949, in Albuquerque to Felipe Crespin and Josefita Zamora. He was retired from the Department of Justice. On Feb. 7, 1970, Jessie married his wife, Mary. They raised two daughters, Sherry Jo and Kim.

Jessie was a true family man; his family meant more than anything to him. He loved to go on family trips and spend as much time as possible with his wife, daughters, grandkids and great-grandkids. Jessie also loved to work on his computer, and he collected diecast model cars.

He enjoyed watching “Gunsmoke,” “The Andy Griffith Show” and “MASH.” He was well known around Los Lunas as a man who made others smile and for his constant kindness. He enjoyed having breakfast with his family almost every weekend at his favorite local restaurant, TJs.

In his later years, he would often jokingly express how he wanted to buy a motorcycle, a camper trailer and adopt a parrot. Each time he brought up these desires, his family would laugh off his wild ideas with a lingering uncertainty as to whether or not he was truly serious.

Jessie was preceded in death by his father, Felipe Crespin; his mother, Josefita Zamora; and his siblings, Florence Aragon, Dioncio Crespin, Elaine Nordlund, Sammy Crespin and Richard Crespin.

He is survived by his wife, Mary Crespin; his two daughters, Sherry Jo Crespin-Aragon and husband, Frank Aragon, and Kim Crespin; his grandchildren, Kaitlin Rouckus and husband, Brandon Rouckus, Mariah Aragon, Jordan Crespin, Savvanah Aragon and boyfriend, Estevan Gallegos, Aricca Marquez and husband, Abie Marquez, and Alexis Crespin; and seven great-grandchildren, Orion, Alessa, Legend, Zoey, Lucas, Liam and Keanu.

Memorial services for Jessie will be held at a later date.

Richard George “Dick” Farrow

Richard George “Dick” Farrow loving father, grandfather brother and friend stepped into heaven on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020 at the age of 82.

His precious daughter, Cindy Lynn Newberry, was by his side. He died at Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque.

Dick was born on Oct. 18, 1938, to George Alva Farrow and Fayebelle Trimm Farrow in Belen. His father was a railroad man and was transferred to Clovis, where he and Fayebelle raised Dick and his sister, Frances.

Dick graduated from Clovis High School, fell in love and married Judith Madine Stratton, of Portales. Soon thereafter, Dick began his career on the railroad as a fireman in Gallup. With Judy by his side and with hard work and determination, Dick became an engineer for the Santa Fe railroad. Dick raised his family in Gallup. His career eventually led him back to his hometown of Belen, where he worked as an engineer until retirement.

Dick and his childhood sweetheart, Judy, bought a little ranch near Bosque and built their dream home. He enjoyed his retirement and had multiple hobbies. He was a loyal fan of the Dallas Cowboys. Dick was an avid hunter, an excellent gardener and wildlife enthusiast.

“Grandad,” as he was fondly referred to by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, taught the family to fish and frog along the arroyos and to appreciate the beauty and wildness of the Rio Grande Valley. He camped, fished and four-wheeled. He often could be seen by the neighbors driving his RTV with a little white pup named Shadow in the passenger seat, on the way to the Bosque post office.

He loved to travel. He cruised to the Bahamas, Hawaii and Alaska, visiting many of the beautiful places in the U.S.A. Dick so appreciated the natural beauty of the Earth and fulfilled his drive to play, enjoy his life and be happy. He was a fun loving, devoted family man and friend.

Most who knew Dick knew a giant of a man with a generous heart who loved to tease. The more he teased you, the more he loved you. He would tell amazing stories of his adventures to anyone who would listen. Dick Farrow had an unmatched enthusiasm for life. All would agree that he was unique, colorful and memorable individual. He was strong but gentle enough to express his love for others without reservation. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was larger than life!

A significant event in Dick Farrow’s life was the acceptance of Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. He was baptized at First Assembly of God Church in Belen on Aug. 30, 2015, at the age of 76. Since that time, he served his church and its people faithfully as head usher and had particular influence in the men’s ministry there.

In the end, his faith gave him courage and peace as he willingly, confidently and fearlessly left this Earth for his heavenly home. His determination to leave the safety of this world and to be with his Lord and Savior and the bride of his youth was strong. He left this life confident in his faith.

Dick Farrow was preceded in death by his parents, George Alva Farrow and Fayebelle Trimm Farrow, of Clovis; his wife of 61 years, Judith Madine Stratton Farrow, of Portales; and grandson, Robert Martinez, of Gallup.

He is survived by his sister, Frances Farrow Boldt; son, Dr. Jeff R. Farrow, (Cheryl); and his daughter, Cindy Lynn Newberry (Brett); granddaughter, Heather Lynn Martinez; grandsons, Benjamin Jeff Farrow (Kate) and Lucas Hunter Farrow (Sarah); and four great-grandchildren, Sevilla, Emilia and Aurelia Martinez, and Hunter Levi Farrow.

There will be a private family gathering in Gallup at Sunset Memorial Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to his beloved church, First Assembly of God, P.O. Box 108, Belen, New Mexico 87002, 505-864-4117.

They both found true joy in raising their two sons, traveling, spending time with their grandchildren and most of all, spending time on Alice’s father’s ranch in Corrales.

Richard was a consummate sales professional and won numerous destination trip awards as a top performer in his organization. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan — nothing made him happier than the early ’90’s Cowboys Super Bowl run and championships.

A true New Mexican, one of his favorite past times was heading the crew for his son’s hot air balloon. His favorite hangout was Barela’s Coffee House, a place he would frequent at least three times a week, where he often met family and friends.

R. Richard Griego Sr. will be truly missed, and our family will not be the same without him.

A small family service was held.

Thomas A. Tabet

Thomas A. Tabet, passed away on Monday evening, Nov. 30, due to COVID-related complications. He was 71. We embrace a beautiful image of his niece, Cathy; and his mom, Lily, bringing him home to the Lord.

Tom graduated from Belen High School in 1967, received his BA from the University of New Mexico in 1971, and his law degree from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC, in 1975. He practiced law in Albuquerque for more than three decades.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Lily (Baca) Tabet; brother, Herman Tabet; and brother, Wilfred Tabet.

Tom is survived by his daughter, Celena Tabet, husband Steven Jaquez; his son, Jeffrey Thomas Tabet, partner Jeremy Jimenez; his grandchildren, Miguel, Gabriella and Aria; siblings, Dolores (Eugene) Schiess, Fidel Tabet, Gloria Trujillo, Lorena (Gilbert) Sanchez and Richie (Sue) Tabet; and his wife, Michelle Tabet. Tom is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the staff, especially Tom’s caregivers Emi and Gary, for the extra special care they provided for him during his almost 11-year stay at Manzano del Sol. Tom’s children would like to give a special thank you and blessing to Dolores and Eugene Schiess, Tom’s guardian angels, who made sure that he was comfortable, well cared for, and that all his needs were met.

As we have received many calls, cards and texts of condolences for Tom’s death, we reflect on the common themes we received of Tom’s life. Over and over, we heard “he was such a good guy ..., he helped me and my family out of difficult situations ..., he loved his children.” Trying to reconcile our loss, we believe Tom’s final message to us would be to live life to the fullest. Tom would tell you that if you have a problem with drugs and alcohol, get help. If you obtain sobriety, work at it everyday like your life depends on it, because it does. If you are hurt or angry with someone, forgive them and don’t give up on them. Life is short and family is everything.

Services will be announced later as the family works out details because of COVID limitations.

Please sign Tom’s online tribute at Romero Funeral Home, 609 N. Main St., Belen.
