Joe E. Duran, 97, passed away Sunday evening, 24 November 2002, at his home in Nampa, ID. He was born on 5 May, 1905 in Taos, NM to Florence Rosa, & Joe Matias Duran. Joe married Florida Cardenas in Taos on 7 Spetember 1931.

They resided in Taos for a short while, then moved to Cokeville, WY, where Joe spent most of his time ranching and helping to raise their seven children. In his later years, he and Florida moved back and forth from Cokeville to Nampa, until his death in Nampa.

He is survived by his wife, Florida C.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Joe Matias Duran & Florence Duran; two sisters, a brother and a son, Arthur Ernest Duran. A memorial service was held on 30 November in Cokeville at St Dominics Catholic Church with Father Murray officiating.

Grandpa Duran was a towering thin man--a gentle giant--a sweetheart. He was loved dearly, and is missed tremendously!
