Richard ‘Dicky’ Rivera Bracamonte

  Richard “Dicky” Rivera Bracamonte, of Kearny, Arizona, passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 8 2019. He was 84 years old.

  Richard was born on Aug. 19, 1934 to Roberto and Magdalena Bracamonte in Winkelman, Arizona. He was a graduate of Hayden High School. He attended Arizona State University, where he played baseball and began his lifelong love of Sun Devil sports. In 1954, he started his 33-year-old career in the mining industry as an employee of Kennecott Copper and Asarco Mining Company. His proudest accomplishment was marrying Gloria “Laly” Padilla and building the family that he loved and treasured above all.

  Richard is survived by his wife of 64 years, Gloria “Laly” and his children, Richard (Carmen), Lorrie Celis (Peter), Alex (Lisa) and Ernie (Melissa). He also is survived by his brother Dave (Lupe) and sister Angie Chavez (Rex). He will be lovingly remembered by his 14 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild, many nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends.

  We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from him throughout his life. Among them cooking the best beans in town, the virtue of saving everything, and loving unconditionally. He was a lifelong fan of the New York Yankees and the ASU Sun Devils – FORKS UP!

  Services were held on Wednesday, Jan. 16, at the Infant Jesus of Prague Catholic Church in Kearny, Arizona. He was laid to rest at Mountain View Cemetery in Hayden, Arizona.
