Emeterio Granado III

Emeterio Granado III, “Jay,” 52, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family and friends on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, in Roswell, New Mexico.

The family of Emeterio will gather to Celebrate his Life at Waymaker Church, 202 S. Sunset Avenue, Roswell, New Mexico, at 10:00 AM on Saturday, December 4, 2021.

On January 6, 1969, Jay was born to Agnes and George Washington in Moline, Illinois. He has been a chef his whole adult life in various cities, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to San Antonio, Texas. Jay enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, most of all, spending time with all his family and friends.

Jay was given a gift of cooking that he shared with those he loved. Every dish he made was extraordinary, and there was something in every bite that made it known you were eating something special.

If you were blessed to receive a gift from him, it was most likely something you could eat and something you remember eating for the rest of your life. Jay may be gone, but the memories of fun, laughter, and good food will always remain.
