Cruz A Sedillo
Cruz A Sedillo was born on January 1, 1936 in T or C New Mexico, passed away October 29th, 2017, surrounded by loved ones. He lived life to the fullest and never took it for granted for a second, knowing it was too precious to waste one day on hate or anger. And that's why no matter where her was or who he met, Cruz always had a joke or 2 waiting for them in his pocket. As a child he enjoyed helping on the family ranch and as he grew up the helpful nature grew ten fold always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who ever needed it no matter who it was. He took great pride in helping others which is why he chose to serve his country. He was very devoted to his family and his faith, never missing Sunday service attending the same church for many years. Putting 110% in all he did in life, his family and friends knew his as being very creative, and loved to put that creativity to work in making toys for the kids when he would visit.
Cruz is preceded in death by his Father and mother Eduardo Sedillo and Amada (Gabaldon) Sedillo, brothers- Narciso & Alberto Sedillo. Sisters-  Piedad (sedillo) Apodaca, brother-in-law Robert Apodaca, Elijia Sedillo & brother-in-law Joe Lavassure
He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Agapita Sedillo, Brother-Elfego Sedillo & wife Irene, his daughter Doris (Sedillo) Luna & son-in-law Demecio, Grand-daughter Bernice Carrillo & her boyfriend of 12yrs Farris Brock, 3 great-grand children whom he adored  Enrique Carrillo- Carilos Cruz Carrillo & Angelica Carrillo plus many more extended family that will love and miss him dearly.

Dear Sedillo Family, I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Times like this can be very difficult to deal with. At times, you may feel like there is no one to turn to. You may even feel like no one understands your pain. But there is one person we can turn to that can help us through all of our trials. Yes, God can help you during this difficult time. Pray to him constantly and he will help you. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Isa. 26:19)
