Raymond Ray Tellez, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother; passed away into the arms of his Heavenly Father on Aug. 26, 2019 at the age of 63.
He was born in Prescott, Arizona. As a child, his family relocated to Grants, N.M., where his father pursued a career in the mining industry. Raymond followed in his father’s footsteps and was an underground miner for 42 years. He had a love for hunting and fishing; yet was most happy when spending time with his family. He had a huge heart and a generous spirit.
Preceding him in death were his parents: Juan Tellez and Guadalupe Tellez.
Raymond is survived by his wife of 45 years: Candy; children: Christina (Francisco) Sena, Renee Tellez, Jason (Christine) Tellez, and Janelle Tellez; as well as his eight brothers and sisters and many nieces and nephews. He was an amazing role model and will be greatly missed by his 11 grandchildren: Isaac, Eric, Courtney, Alyssa, Isaiah, Damian, Shaelynn, Adrian, Tyler, Angelina, and Joshua; and his two great-grandchildren, Ember and Eleanora.
