Lorenzo  Bustamante
Lorenzo Martinez "Larry/Chino" Bustamante died at home surrounded by his family on April 2, 2020 in Las Cruces, NM at the age of 76. Lorenzo was born on September 5, 1943 in Rodey, NM to Concepciόn and Magdalena Bustamante.
He married Juanita Fajardo Bustamante, in Rincόn, NM in 1963. They made Las Cruces, NM their home. Over nine years, the couple was blessed with four children; Lydia, Sylvia, Cynthia and Christopher; four grandchildren, Sarah (Flaca), Aaron (Gordo), Jaymee (Güera), and Samantha (Prieta); and five great-grandchildren, David, Eli, Christian, Ezra, and Jonathan. His family remembers him as a hardworking, loving, and generous husband, father and grandfather who encouraged them to pursue their goals. Lorenzo worked for the Coca Cola Company as a routeman. He then worked as a mechanic at AAMCO Transmissions and eventually opened his own business, Larry’s Automotive, where he retired in 2005. Lorenzo loved to dance to any type of music. He also loved to play his guitar and sing, especially with his brothers and Uncle Willie. Some of his favorite songs were We are Family, Volver, Las hijas de Don Simón (Samuel), Let’s Get Physical, Macho Man, and Los Hombres No Deben Llorar. Lorenzo enjoyed watching Judge Judy, Jeopardy and boxing while he worked on his Fill-In puzzle books.

A special thank you to the angels from High Desert Hospice who provided our dad with the best care and compassion!
