Fred Archuleta passed away on October 22, 2021 at Mercy Hospice House, surrounded by family.

Fred was born in Bonita Canyon, NM to Silviano and Serefina Archuleta on July 28, 1936. He was the 7th of 9 children. Fred grew up on the family ranch of 320 acres, with a schoolhouse on the property. Later on the family split the acreage between siblings, which made them all stay very close. Fred enjoyed spending time outside, gardening, fishing or just maintaining his property. Fred was single most of his life, so the family would seek his help with their own property maintenance. He enjoyed helping all of his siblings and the occasional eating out or just running errands. All his family adored him, he was the quiet, kind, perfect brother and uncle.

He is preceded in death by his parents; 3 sisters: Bernie Martinez, Amelia Archuleta & Duby Gallegos and 5 brothers: Victor, Andy, Sabino, Silviano, Jr. and Beltron Archuleta.

Fred is survived by sister, Ursula Davies, several nieces and nephews and many cousins.

Fred will be interred with his father at Greenmount Cemetery at later date and a memorial service will be held in the Spring of 2022.
