Raton Takes District Game with Pecos in Five

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

Raton hosted Pecos for an early season district game Tuesday afternoon and marked the win column in a five inning game.

Raton started the game out with a six run rally with a big hit by the first batter Jonathan Cabriales. Raton soon loaded the bases and added a run on a walk. By the end of the inning Raton had run the batting order plus three.

Pecos only score in the game came in the second inning when a throw to second to catch a steal allowed the runner at third to head home and beat the throw home. Raton added one in the second too while both teams went cold in the third. Raton then had a four run rally with a bases loaded walk for one run and a couple of hits for the other three runs.

In Loving Memory of Wesley Kendrick

Wesley was born in Cimarron, NM on November 29, 1928, the second son of Clyde Kendrick and Lula Gavin Kendrick.

After the death of his brother Heber in 1940, the family moved to Raton. Wesley had many jobs as a teenager in Raton. Since his house had a telephone, he got a job as a call boy for the Santa Fe railroad, riding his bicycle to wake up engineers and conductors to go to work. After school, he drove a grocery truck for K & S Grocery, delivering groceries to houses around town. For a short time, he was a fire boy for The Santa Fe railroad, and got to ride a few steam engines over Raton Pass. Later, Wesley drove a greyhound bus to Denver and Amarillo. This was a quite short lived occupation. He also worked for the Colfax County Road Department and several construction companies in the Farmington and Chama area.

After the Navy, Wesley worked for the New Mexico Highway Department. He married Margaret Van de Valde in 1962. In 1966, he left the highway department to start Colfax Construction Company. He worked for many ranches in the area, building roads, dams, stock tanks, water lines, or whatever was needed. Wesley semi-retired in 2004, but his official retirement was last Saturday, March 18, 2017.

He taught  computer related continuing education courses at UNM and coauthored a textbook dealing with spreadsheets and word processing and  later started his own computer consulting business. He was sought out by  headhunter groups and traveled  to locations  for longer term consulting on site.  He did consulting work for large companies like Kaiser Permanente in Reading, PA and Ryder Truck in Miami, FL.  Once, while on assignment working for a client in France, he traveled to  Austria near Tyrol to discover  areas where his grandparents  Maria Bertol and Remigio Yob, originated.   

 

Jim concluded his consulting in 1999, when he was hired by IBM to work in their Denver region.  While in Denver Jim met  Rhonda and they were married in  2001.  Jim and Rhonda made their home in Lakewood, CO until moving to Vestal, NY in 2007, after Jim  was hired by Raymond Corporation as a Project Manager in their information technology area.

SCHULTE JIMJim had a great sense of humor and was loved by all.  He made friends wherever he was.  He especially  loved to talk politics and he loved country western music (old style). If given a microphone, he would sing his favorite country songs anytime.  His passions were wine, a good martini and a cigar, casinos, Denver Broncos and UNM Lobos.  He was also a stamp collector at an early age.  Jim had a special place in his heart for his love for fishing and hunting arrowheads with his dad, Albert,  while growing up in Raton. He was a true lover of dogs, and his Denver Dude is missing him terribly.

 

Rhonda and Jim’s brothers plan interment of his remains and  celebration of  Jim’s life in Raton during Memorial Day Weekend on Saturday, May 27,  with his mother, Erma’s services who passed away on January 4, 2017 at 97 years old.
