Biografía


Daniel Mario Montoya III, 31 of Cuarteles, was called to be with our Heavenly father for eternal peace on May 24, 2013.

Daniel was born in Los Alamos on November 17, 1981. Daniel graduated from Espanola Valley High School in 2000, and went on to receive a Bachelors of Science Degree in Biological Chemistry from the University of Texas at Arlington on a full academic scholarship. Daniel was one of only five that graduated, with this degree. In 2010, he earned a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. He was a research assistant in Theoretical Modeling for HCV and AIDS at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Daniel received many awards and scholarships for his outstanding academic achievements. He received the UNM Star Scholar for top 10 percent students in New Mexico. As a freshman in high school he was selected to tutor upper classmen in calculus. During the Cerro Grande fire as an outreach coordinator he organized door-to-door campaigns to raise monetary donations for the victims.

He recently worked as a Budget Analyst for NM State Senator Debbie Rodella and was recognized by Senator Mary Kay Papen, President Pro Tempore, and Dep. Chief Stephen Arias N.M. House of Rep. for his efficiency and professionalism in his work performance. As a result, Daniel was offered a position as Legislative Finance Committee- Fiscal Analyst for different Advocate Agency of N.M. Daniel loved to go fishing and hunting with his dad and brother, as well as riding his Banshee four wheeler in the hills. He was a well-known folk artist who painted Retablos professionally, was featured in Sunset, Los Angeles Times, New Mexico Magazine and Book Covers. He exhibited his artwork in several museums, galleries, churches and purchased by private collectors. The New Mexico Folk Art Museum has three of his pieces in their permanent collection. Daniel also was a featured Santero at Spanish Market and received numerous awards for his Retablos. Daniel was truly loved by his family and he was the center of their world. He will be greatly missed. His impact on the world and those that loved him will be present in our hearts and souls forever. He was very compassionate and giving to others and always willing to help those in need. His best friend was his father who he always introduced to all his friends not as his dad, but as his “Best Friend”.

Daniel is preceded in death by his grandparents Daniel and Donelia Montoya and Fermin and Mabel Vigil, uncles Enrique Montoya, Ben and Leo Vigil, aunts Juanita Vigil and Minnie Trujillo, cousin Anthony (Tony) Padilla, and favorite cousin that was like a sister, Victoria Vigil. He is survived by his parents Richard, and Theresa his sister Melissa, nephew Melaki, brother Rick and wife Patty Montoya. He is survived by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins and his beloved dog Tiger.

"The price to pay for having someone special touch your life is the sadness you feel when they're gone. Even though it cost me tears and heartache, the memories are a bargain."

A memorial service was held on May 29, 2013 at 10:00am at the Church of Jesus Christ & Latter Day Saints in Espanola. Burial followed at a local cemetery.



Honorary Pallbearers: Family, cousins and good friends.

The Montoya family would like to thank those who have comforted them during this very difficult time and ask you to keep them in your prayers.

Just returning back from one of the most beautiful services I have ever attended. I just want to express my deepest condolences to your family. Daniel was a very special part of our family. After Lil' Anthony passed away, Daniel spent a lot of time with us. Daniel spent many hours comforting Tone after Anthony died. When Tone passed away, Daniel was one of the first people at our house to extend his condolences. He was so broken and I believe it was he that needed consoling. And yes, Theresa, I do have a little wooden angel from your Gallery that Daniel gave us and said it was to remind us that Lil' Anthony and Tone were watching over us. He was a tender-hearted person and was a blessing to our family during our times of grief and loss. I pray that the Lord be with you in this time as it is your family that experiencing loss. Be comforted in that he is with his beloved family and friends whom he loved and missed. You and your family are in our prayers.

Cousin, I miss you already. I can see you as the little boy you were when I went to college and moved away. You were young and playful, so full of energy. A trickster, a puppy. I remember one time when you kept pulling at me, trying to sit down underneath me when I tried to sit on a chair. Laughing and running. I chased you and tried to sit down on you. It was a game. You were too fast. I started to flag, you started to tease me, slowing down and pausing while I tried to sit on you. Then you were too slow. I sat down. You laughed and cried. You were too small. I was too big. I felt terrible. I did not mean to hurt you. It was a game. You then jumped up and laughed again and again with tears in your eyes. You tried to get me to chase you. But I did not want to hurt you. You gave me a hug. I went to college. Moved away. I did not get to see you often, did not get to know you well as a young man. I always think of you as a trickster, a puppy, ready for a laugh and a game. I always loved you and always will. I moved away and lived my life, not thinking often of my childhood. But your death and the death of my cousin Tony causes me to look back. How lucky we were to live together. To know each other. To see each other. I wish I could be there to say good bye. To hold your hand. To cry with your parents and family. You are in my thoughts. I pray your family finds peace. Love, Barbara

I'm just at a loss for words. I just can't believe this. I would see Daniel next door at my neighbors, Tone' and Anthony's until they passed and recently saw him on my way to work for this last legislative session. I also went to school and rode the bus with him. My thoughts are with his family and I am truly sorry for your loss.

Homecoming with Hopes

I remember when we traveled for two days to come and visit my sister and family. Our 7 children wanted to see the area and Daniel kindly set out to show us the Santuario and the Santa Cruz lake and dam. While at the Santuario Daniel showed us the room with the holy dirt, told us about the healing of all the people who after they were healed had hung their braces on the wall. He bent down and took some of the holy dirt and gave it to my daughter Janel. We later went to the dam after sitting at the church outside in the shade. At the dam he showed the kids how the could climb along the bank to see the dam better. I was looking at a dry cacturs that turned dried and turned to wood, Daniel went and picked it for me and gave to me. I still have that today to remind me of our visit. We enjoyed the visit so much more cuz Daniel went with us, he made us laugh and our hearts were happy. Daniel has always stayed in touch with one of my children and made us feel like part of the family even if we lived in another country. Thank you Daniel...Till we meet again. God Bless you Daniel and be with your family. Love Always Aunt Tina,
