Adam M. Montoya November 7, 1978 -- January 28, 2010 Our beloved Adam M. Montoya, 31 years of age, went home to our Lord on January 28, 2010 as a result of a weather-related auto accident. Adam loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend to many. His pride and joy were his nieces and nephews. Adam's charismatic nature lit up a room when he entered and always made people smile. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. After graduating from Pojoaque High in 1997, he attended the University of New Mexico, and was briefly employed by Sandia National Lab. He was presently employed with Los Alamos National Lab as a Design Engineer for P-Division. His technological excellence in his work on projects will be dearly missed by his colleagues at the Laboratory. He was an avid sportsman, loved to ski, ride his motorcycle, and applied his creative skills working in the Montoya's family "Ironworks" business. Adam is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Tony and Agnes Montoya; maternal grandmother, Jane Martinez; and aunt, Patricia Ulibarri. He is survived by his loving parents, Anthony and Vickie Montoya of El Rancho; maternal grandfather Ascension J. Martinez of Chimayo; brother Nicholas Montoya and wife Valerie of El Rancho; sister Natalie Montoya and Eric Garcia of Ojo Caliente; his girlfriend Ann Lanzante and her son Frankie, who was like a son to Adam; and Ann's daughter Sidney.

He also leaves behind many cousins, great aunts and uncles and many other relatives who dearly love him. A rosary will be recited at Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe in Pojoaque at 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, with visitation starting at 6 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10 a.m. on Wednesday at Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe with the family's cousin Fr. Tim Martinez officiating. Burial will follow at the El Rancho Catholic Cemetery.
