With profound sadness, the family of Ernest Luevano, 62, shares of his untimely passing on Sunday, December 27, 2020.
Born in Tularosa, New Mexico on September 17, 1958 to Isaac and Millie Luevano, Ernest lived and attended school in Tularosa until he moved to Alamogordo in 1981 with his bride, Robyn – the love of his life.
All who know and love Ernest will never forget him for his entertaining stories and his quick and humorous personality. There was never a time that Ernest could not come back with a witty and funny response, or a joke or two, leaving those around him busting at the seams.
Ernest’s gentleness and caring manner also earned him the respect of his family, his friends and his coworkers. He was no stranger to working hard and no stranger to always being willing to jump in to help people out. Ernest took pride in whatever he did, and was a master gardener in keeping meticulous lawns for the City of Alamogordo as well as for his home.
He will be fondly remembered as a loving son, brother, husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather. The greatest pride and joys of his life were his family, taking care of them and insuring they always knew they were loved. He instilled in them strong family values and work ethics. He was lovingly known as “Papa” to his four grandchildren who were the light of his life and who will miss him deeply.
Ernest leaves behind a beautiful family -- survived by his wife of nearly forty years, Robyn, his son Matthew Luevano (Michelle), his daughter Megan Bowman (James) and his four grandchildren, Keyleigh Bowman, Adrie Luevano, Makynna Bowman and Drake Luevano. Also surviving him is sister Josie Worley (Dolph), brother David Luevano (Eva) and numerous nieces and nephews.
Waiting for him at the gates of heaven were his mother and father, Isaac and Millie Luevano, sister Cecilia Centrella, brother Jacob Luevano and father-in-law Jimmie Worley.
The Luevano family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Scenic Chapel.
Cremation has taken place, and due to the COVID Pandemic, a Memorial Celebration Service will be live streamed at www.trinityalamogordo.org at 10:00 am on Saturday, January 2, 2020.
“If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.”
