Roy E. May (9/20/1977-10/16/2018) left his earthly home and was greeted by his heavenly family on October 16, 2018. 

A graveside service will be held Friday October 26, 2018 at 2 o’clock in the afternoon at Mountain View Cemetery with Javier Diaz conducting. Cremation has been entrusted to Baca’s Mimbres Crematory.

He was a graduate of Deming High School Class of 1996 where he participated in football and golf, his two passions. Having been away for a while, Roy returned to live in his hometown with his greatest love Gabie and daughter, Maggie Stormi May.  Watching professional golf, football, NASCAR racing, fishing and hunting was his idea of the good life.  He was a tree trimmer by trade but his roots were in cattle ranching where he helped in the family business for many years.

Roy did not know a stranger and was helpful in so many ways to anyone who needed a helping hand.  He was a gentle giant, with a quick wit, a broad smile and a big heart.  When a situation seemed insurmountable he could turn the tables and find the solution and a bright side.  He easily made friends and has many good friends who called him “Bro”. 

Survivors include his immediate family: father, Byron R. May (Deanne), mother, Diana May-Diaz (Javier), sister, Talis L. May (Kevin), step-sisters, Kate Autry (Jaxon), Jade Zeigler (Marvin), his greatest love, Gabrielle Rademacher, daughter, Margaret Stormi May, nieces, Audrey Pacheco, Ava Flores, nephew, Ronnie Simmons and many loved extended family members.  

In lieu of flowers or gifts, in Roy’s memory please say “I love you,” smile and lend a helping hand.
