David Maynez

September 5, 1970 ~ November 28, 2021 (age 51)


David Miguel Raymundo Maynez

On November 28, 2021, Our Almighty God welcomed one of his soldiers to heaven.  David was born September 5, 1970 at Gerald Champion Memorial Hospital to Miguel A. and Helen Najera Maynez.  He passed away at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center.

David was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Raymundo and Maria Maynez, and his maternal granparents, Alfredo and Candelaria Najera.

He is survived by his siblings, Arthur W. Maynez, Isabelle C.M. (Roberto G.) Rios Jr., Victoria E. (John F.) Washington, Leticia E. Maynez.  He is also survived by a daughter and grandchildren, numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, cousins, godchildren, wonderful friends, especially Leticia G. Duran.

David was an upstanding member of the Alamogordo community.  He was well known as a master event planner, out-standing cook, professional baker, and caregiver.  In the last 25 years David was instrumental in granting the wishes of many brides, young girls celebrating their Quincenera’s (15th birthday), and couples celebrating their silver and golden anniversaries.  His decorating skills were beyond reproach.  One of David’s hidden talents was stepping in as a seamstress when called upon by his sisters, when a last-minute dress was needed to be made or altered.  Above all one of David’s talents, a favorite with ladies, was David’s love of dancing and love of music.  Generally, at the events he was catering, he could always be found on the dance floor.

Heaven has welcomed an angel who will be missed here at home.  Cremation has already taken place. 

Memorial and Celebration of Life Services will be held Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 2:00pm at Washington Park.  Please bring lawn chairs.
