Tranquilino Apodaca went home to the Lord on May 26, 2022. He entered the Gates of Heaven and has joined wife Rufina, parents Manuel T. and Rosita Apodaca and sister Otillia Martinez. He is survived by children John & Deadra, Fred and Barbara Apodaca, Louise & Kenny Fresquez and Barbara Baca. Grandchildren John Eric, Andrew, Andres and Beverly Apodaca, Kenny II, Ryan and Brandon Fresquez, great-grandson Johnathan Fresquez. Sisters Trancita Robles, Lorrie Maldonado, and brother Manuel Apodaca. He was very proud of his grandchildren, loved sitting on the porch with anyone that would join him, loved his dogs, and would watch the birds fly around his home in Bernalillo. He was a simple man that never complained, always said he was good and was at 110%. A viewing will be on Wednesday, June 8th, at 5-6:00pm at French Mortuary, Lomas in Albuquerque followed by a rosary at 6:00pm. His Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, June 9th, at 10:30am, at Our Lady of Sorrows in Bernalillo. He will be greatly missed. Bye for now Pops and Grampie til we meet again. We love you!
