Raymundo was born Jan. 23, 1937, in Artesia, the only child of Pedro Yrigollen and Gregoria Marquez.

He served with the U.S. Marine Corps in 1955 during the Korean Conflict.

Raymundo worked for Deans Inc. as an electric motor tech. He also volunteered as a Grandpa at Artesia Head Start and worked at the Artesia MealSite.

Raymundo made friends everywhere he went and enjoyed collecting precious rocks and making jewelry. He also loved dancing and liked going to casinos and taking trips to the mountains. Most of all, he loved spending time with partner Cora and family. He made an impact in our lives and taught us to never give up and to work hard. It was never a dull moment with Dad/Grandpa, and he will be missed dearly.

Raymundo’s memory will be cherished by his wife, Santos (Acosta) Yrigollen, of Artesia; his life partner, Cora Archuleta, and her son Bobby Archuleta; sons Ralph Marquez and wife Dona of Temecula, Calif., Leonardo Marquez and wife Tracy, Phillip Marquez and wife Martha, Lorenzo Yrigollen and wife Marie of Midway, and Pedro Gutierrez and Anyssa Granados of Artesia; daughters Catherina Vigil and husband Louie of Bakersfield, Calif., Christina Miles of El Paso, Texas, Martina Silvas and Daniel Miranda of Dexter, Veronica Davila and husband Fernando of Clovis, and Beatrice Romero and husband Ralph of Odessa, Texas; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to extend a big thank-you to Cora and her son, Bobby Archuleta, for the support they gave their father, Raymundo.

Arrangements are under the direction of LaGrone Funeral Chapel. Condolences may be expressed online at www.lagronefuneralchapels.com.
