Patrick Daniel Montoya 36, a resident of Ranchos de Taos, was called home to be with the Lord on July 3, 2021.
He was preceded in death by his great-grandparents Eduardo and Solidea Mondragon, Presentacion and Senida Madrid, and Mardoqueo and Estrella Lucero; grandfather Joe A. Montoya; infant son Patrick Montoya Jr.; cousins Andrew Vargas and Angel Gabriella Lopez; and godfather Daniel Medina.
Patrick’s family was his world, he loved fishing, being in the great outdoors, recreational shooting and cooking meals in his “deesco” and “pit boss” smoker. He was a strong tall man, with an even bigger heart. Patrick would light up any room with his laughter and personality. He will be greatly missed.
