On January 20th, 2023, our beloved son THOMAS JONATHAN CLARK TUSKI aka TUSKI passed away and entered into God’s grace. A true warrior throughout life, with a, "Heart of Gold!" Thomas spent a great deal of his life traveling as he loved making friends wherever he went. He most certainly was very friendly and outgoing, always looking for that opportunity to help others wherever his travels would take him. THOMAS TUSKI was very protective of all children and had a very special relationship with each one of them as he loved them with all his being as well as all of his family members. TUSKI enjoyed fishing, hiking, camping and just being in the great outdoors. He especially loved listening to all types of music as he used to say, " It brings love, joy and happiness into my life and it's good for the soul”. He was also an Avid Reader of many subjects. The King James Holy Bible was his favorite book as he was a firm believer in GOD. On many occasions you could find TUSKI kneeing and praying in front of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in the very early morning hours while everyone was sleeping. He used to say, it was ever so peaceful and quiet that he really enjoyed his special prayer times with GOD. TUSKI’S other love was in the Medical Field. He would go on to educate himself in his quest to become a team member of medicine. He was also blessed to have been educated about the natural herbal healings. Using natural herbal medicines from his late Great- Grandmother Margaret who was not only a masseur but a Medicine Women in her own right. After receiving his High School Diploma, he went on to earn his Certified Nursing Certificate, graduating with honors while attending to his studies at the Job Corp in Albuquerque, NM and shortly after that he prepared himself to attend Northern New Mexico College in Espanola, NM where he was going to enter into his studies and training to earn his Registered Nursing Degree.

My dearest friend. I just recently found out today of your passing. Rest in peace my friend and my your aggressors meet the final judgement they deserve.
I remember the day we met being only 6 or so. You with long hair, glasses and a leather vest with arm bands. I remember making a friend for life after that. I remember staying at your house and sneaking out at night to play in a construction site and messing with a bull dozer. I remember years later as adults chatting can a fb and playing catch up. I miss you my friend. I cry for you absense and the pain your loved ones feel. Be well brother. Juan-karlo Gonzales
