Jesus Fuentes

Jesus G. Fuentes passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2007, at the age of 83 in Kingman.

Jesus ("Jess") was born on May 6, 1923, in Fort Stockton, Texas. He served as a U.S. Army military policeman during World War II and was an aerospace master sheet metal mechanic until his retirement in 1997.

He is survived by his former wife and matriarch of the Fuentes family, Mary M. Fuentes, Norwalk, Calif.; his sons, Lionel Fuentes, Phillips Ranch, Calif., and Arnold Fuentes, Long Beach, Calif.; his daughter, Jeannie Fuentes, Albuquerque, N.M.; grandchildren, Edmund, Arianna, Jeniffer, Lisa, and Erick; and eight great-grandchildren.

The family held a Rosary for Jesus on Jan. 12, 2007; a funeral mass was offered for Jesus on Saturday morning, Jan. 13, at St. Mary's Catholic Church with interment immediately following at Mountain View Cemetery - all in Kingman. All of his family gathered at the El Palacio Restaurant after the interment to honor and toast the man who started it all - the patriarch of our family, Jesus Fuentes.

Jesus was a kind and generous man with a heart as big as all outdoors. Even so, with quick wit and a warm sense of humor, he beat everyone who dared to play him at chess or checkers. Also, he loved nothing more than to cook a big meal and have his house full of his family and friends. Devoted to his family, they, in turn, will never forget him, and he will live on in our hearts. Go with God, "Pop"/"Pompom"/"Grandpa."
