Richard Joe Gregory

Joe passed away on February 1st, 2022 after a gallant fight with bile duct cancer.  Joe was 38 years old with a young beautiful family: Holly his wife, Kadance his 16 year old son, and Kooper Jayde his 2 year old daughter.  He was born April 12, 1983 and lived his life in Farmington, New Mexico.  

Joe and Holly were true sole mates and welded together at a very young age.  Holly was the bride of his youth.  They grew together and overcame every obstacle in their young lives except cancer.  Joe worked in the oil field providing compressor station maintenance, and for Pesco, an oil field equipment manufacturer. 

He was a friend to many, and an amazing husband, father, and son.  He loved the outdoors, and was a pretty accomplished fisherman.  He could often be found fishing from his john boat, working on Kade’s motorcycle, or holding; feeding; diapering; or just loving on Kooper.   He was Kade’s personal wrestling coach, and number one fan in everything he did. 

Joe was preceded in death by his Grandfather Eddie Joe Gregory,Grandmother Ruth Elkins, cousin TJ George, brother-in-law Marcus Reed, nephew Jordan Reed and father-in-law Robert Armendariz.

Joe is survived by his wife Holly, son Kadance, daughter Kooper, Mom Sheri Archuleta, Father Richard Floyd Gregory, Brother Roland Gregory, and an extra-large extended family.
