March 19, 1950 — December 19, 2023

Duran, NM


Joe R. Madril, 73 of Duran, NM passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, December 19, 2023.

Joe was born to Jose Guadalupe Madril and Maria Dionesia (Jaramillo) Madril on March 19, 1950 in Duran, NM.  Joe was raised in Duran and later graduated from Encino High School in 1969.

On September 19, 1970, Joe married the former Amelia Lopez at St. John the Baptist Church in Duran.  Joe lived in Clovis, NM for 38 years, where he was a bricklayer.  He later worked for NM DOT, retiring in 2010.  Joe moved back to Duran in 1996 to help care for his mother.  A parishioner at St. John the Baptist Church, Joe was also a member of the St. Joseph Society.

In his spare time, Joe enjoyed cutting wood, caring for his yard, refurbishing furniture and making nichos.  However, Joe’s greatest joy came from the time he spent with his family and friends—and he particularly enjoyed and adored the time he spent with his grandchildren.
