John E. Olguin

John E. Olguin

June 19, 1952 ~ November 14, 2020

John E. Olguin was born on June 19, 1952 to Louisa Lovato and Enrique Olguin in Roswell,

NM. He was raised in Hagerman, NM and graduated class of 1972 at Lake Arthur High. He met

Connie Chavarria while attending Eastern New Mexico University at Roswell and made her his

wife in September of the same year. John faced many health battles throughout his life but

always proved to be a warrior and prevailed each time. He had three sons and one daughter

despite being told he would never be a father. In his youth he enjoys coaching his children’s

sports, camping and fishing with his family and dancing with his wife as often as he could.

As he aged and his family grew, he loved chasing around his 9 grandchildren and 8 great

grandchildren. He could always be found sitting at the table visiting with family, scratching

tickets, and doing crossword puzzles. He took pride in his family, himself, and everything he did

and never left a job unfinished. He will be greatly missed by his entire family.

He is preceded in death by his parents Enrique and Louisa, son John Olguin, daughter Melissa

Olguin Lane, great granddaughter Alyanna Gonzalez, sisters Victoriana Olguin and Molly

Olguin Nunez, brothers Henry Olguin, Raymond Olguin, and Jerry Olguin, grandparents Sostena

and David Lovato, and beloved in-laws Ramon and Cruz Chavarria.

His memory lives on through his wife Connie Olguin, sons Lee Herera and Joe Olguin, sisters

Clarinda Nunez, Velia Olguin and Angie Olguin, grandchildren Anissa Gonzalez, Jarrod Olguin,

Kambri Roland, Jordan Chavez, Seth Olguin, Jonah Mathews, Julius “Juju” Mathews, John D.

Olguin, and Julian Olguin, and great grandchildren Karrah, Karlee, Jaylene, Jace, Janelle, Aurora

and Kannon.

Due to current COVID conditions, viewing will be private. A memorial service will be held

when conditions are more favorable.
