Gregorio Morales came into the United States the year of 1985, looking for a better opportunity for his family. He landed in Roswell, NM in 1986 were he worked for Diamond A Ranch once the ranch was sold he continued working for the future owners. Through out the course of him working for the ranch Mr. Morales built his home with his bare hands by the year of 1993 the home was done. Eventually he got a job for Farmington Construction, which is worked all over the state of NM making new roads, highways etc. There is a piece of his work through out the state of NM. He was a hard worker that everything that he could do alone; which was mostly everything; he would do, he never believed in hiring anyone reason why he has built such a great legacy of such a independent, hard working human being.
If he was described by all of his loved ones they would tell you that he was such a hard worker, caring, loving, strong, sincere; he always told and wanted the truth, a man full of faith, a very stern man, always on time, and had every one on their feet, he was also very playful with everyone and always would bring a smile to anyone’s face. He was full of guidance and willing to provide anyone with his life long lessons. He was a devoted husband, father and (great) grandfather. He never left anyone behind.
Mr. Morales was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church in which he attended regularly for the Saturday mass. His favorite past times were planting his garden, wood working, baking, cooking, playing with his grandchildren/ great grandchildren, would enjoy making them swings, and would always look for something to fix through his home or with other family members and friends. He never would just relax he always felt the need to accomplish something.
