Joe Candelaria passed away on July 20, 2007. Joe was a long-time resident of San Antonito, NM. He was preceded in death by his father, Macario Candelaria; his beloved uncle, Jose Gabriel Candelaria; and his brother, Jerry Candelaria. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Rafaelita (Fela); his children, Joseph Candelaria and Grace Sanchez, Adriana Candelaria and Jay Forsythe, Joann Clemens and husband, Michael; his three grandchildren, Kylie, Macie and Benjamin Clemens; his mother, Agueda Candelaria; his sisters, Dolores, Mary, Gloria, Stella and Luisa; his brothers, Gilbert, Victor, Richard, Leroy, Carl and David; his uncles, James J. Rael and Juan E. Rael; and numerous cousins, nephews and nieces. He was a loving, devoted husband and father and an especially loving and doting grandfather. He was a long-time employee at UNM Hospital and made many friends there. The support he received from his colleagues during his illness was unforgettable and we are deeply grateful to them. He was passionate about music, history (especially local) and woodworking. One of the great joys of his life was to build guitars under the guidance of his best friend, Javier Lopez. He had a quick sense of humor and a photographic memory. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
