Solomon Sedillo Jr, age 81, a lifelong resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, passed away on January 10, 2024. Mr. Sedillo is survived by his wife of twenty-five years Erlinda Sedillo; children, Gino Sedillo, Mario Cordova, Gilbert Cordova, David Cordova, Ross Cordova, Anthony Chavez, Isaac Chavez, JoeBen Chavez, and Sarah Deely; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents Anita and Solomon Sedillo Sr., his brothers Abel, Gillie, Barney and David, his sisters Priscilla, Julia, Caroline, Mary, Frances, and Lucille. Mr. Sedillo served his country proudly in the United States Air Force, where as an aircraft technician he flew over Laos and Cambodia in support of the reconnaissance missions on KC135s as part of the USAF SAC during the early part of the United States involvement in the Vietnam conflict. He then worked for the United States Postal Service where he started as a Clerk and eventually moved up as an Electronic Technician. After 30 years of civil service, he retired and still enjoyed spending time with his many friends that he made throughout his career. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many. He loved fishing, hunting, traveling, listening to KANW 89.1 music on the porch, dancing with his loving wife, Linda, at Epi’s and anywhere else New Mexico Spanish music was playing. He loved animals, especially his dog Chepe and the birds he enjoyed feeding daily. He was a longtime fan of his favorite football team, the Dallas Cowboys. He also enjoyed the outdoors and exploring the Land of Enchantment. He was proud of his upbringing and often reminisced of the good old days, growing up in his barrio San Jose. Above all, he loved spending quality time with his family when they came to visit and organizing family reunions as the Patriarch of the Sedillo family. As his health began to decline, he truly appreciated his caregivers who were very compassionate, loving and kind while assisting his wife with his many daily needs and personal care, and doing so with dignity and respect. Visitation will be at 8:00am on Friday, January 19, 2024, followed by Rosary at 8:30am and Mass at 9:00am at St. Francis Catholic Church, 820 Broadway Blvd SE, Albuquerque, NM. Burial will begin promptly at 1:00pm at Santa Fe National Cemetery with Military Honors.
