Eloy B. Aragon, age 92, a resident of Belen, NM, was called to be with Our Heavenly Father a day after his 92nd birthday. He was on hospice for a couple of weeks and surrounded by family at the time of his passing. Eloy was born May 13, 1928 to parents. Paciano and Ambrosia in Willard, NM. He was one of nine children. As an adult Eloy moved his family to Colorado, then to Albuquerque, and finally to Belen where he resided for over 40 years. While living in Belen he and his wife, Esther could be found dancing at the Senior Center. They loved to dance and Eloy loved his cowboy had. When they won as king and queen, we barely got him to remove his cowboy hat to put on his crown. He enjoyed talking about that, always with a smile. God blessed him with a great long life.
Eloy is proceeded in death by his loving wife, Esther; parents, Paciano and Ambrosia; siblings, Salomon, Granfe, Frank, Rita, Lupe, and Aneda; children, Richard, Diane, Ben, and Charles; and grandchildren, Nathan, Robert, Filomeno, Melissa, Santos, and Frankie.
