Obituary for Joseph L. Baca

Joseph L.  Baca
Joseph Baca, age 52, a resident of Belen, went to heaven on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. He was born October 23, 1966 in Socorro, NM to Patrick Baca and Margaret Perea Baca. At birth, he weighed 10 lbs 4 oz, the biggest baby born at the hospital at the time. He grew up on a farm in Belen and drove his first truck at 5 years old. He would "repair" his sister's radio and removed all the springs from the ball point pens. Joe retired from the United States Air Force, having proudly served his country for 20 years. After retiring, he worked for the USDA Forest Service, but his greatest joy in life was his family. He was loved by everyone who knew him and we take great comfort in knowing that Joseph followed Jesus and he has now met Him face to face.

Joseph is survived by his wife of 25 years, Carolyn J. Baca; son, David and daughter, Caitlin. He is also survived by his mother, Margaret Baca; brothers, Adrian Baca (Rose), Martin (Carolyn), Gilbert (Charlene) and sisters, Anna Baca and Barbara Snow (Nathan), as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, Patrick Baca, Sr.; brother, Patrick Baca, Jr. and his great nephew, Mateo David.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your steps. Proverbs 3:5-6.

All services will be held at Our Lady of Belen Catholic Church on Monday, November 5, 2018, beginning with a viewing at 12:00 PM, followed by a rosary at 12:30 PM and the funeral Mass at 1:00 PM. Interment with military honors will follow at Our Lady of Belen Memorial Gardens. Arrangements are being handled by the caring professionals at the Noblin Funeral Service Belen Chapel, 418 W. Reinken Ave., (505)864-4448.
