Dale Mondragon

Left us entirely too soon on the evening of November, 23, 2021, after battling a long illness.   He was born to Frank Mondragon and Ida Mae (Romero) on August 5, 1951, in Denver, Colorado. He was the youngest of four boys.  Dale graduated from Lincoln High School.  Following graduation he served his country as a proud Marine during the Vietnam conflict.  He later obtained his bachelor’s degree through Metropolitan State College.  He went on to work at Rocky Flats, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and also spent time working in Canada.  Because of fond childhood memories with family in the area, he returned over twenty years ago to make his permanent home in his beloved Taos County.  In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother Benjamin.  He is survived by his longtime partner, Cindy Leyba, and their two dogs, Poppi and Frida; his brother Carl, wife Loretta, nephews Sean Mondragon and Dean Mondragon; and his brother Ron, wife Josie, nephew Benjamin Mondragon, nieces Rhonda Hesch and Jamie Davis. Dale will be deeply missed.  He loved life and lived it to the fullest.  May his spirit continue to touch those who were close to him throughout his lifetime.  As per his wishes, he will be interred at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver, Colorado in 2022.  Arrangements by Rivera Family Funeral Home.
