Richard Dean “Richie” Maestas
October 7, 2020

Richard Dean “Richie” Maestas, age 61, died on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 at Penrose Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his loving family at his side. From his birth in Monte Vista, on November 4, 1958 to his death on Wednesday, he nourished people around him with love, humor and affection.
He was born in Monte Vista to Willie and Lugarda (Gallegos) Maestas and was the second of six children. Throughout his life, Richard showed an affinity for athletics and an everlasting love for his family and friends. After graduating from high school, he attended Adams State College in Alamosa, Colorado. Shortly thereafter, Richard was married to Markita (Cordova) McKamie. It was this union that produced the loves of his life, his 3 children. For the last two decades, Richard was an eager and devoted caregiver and support for his mother Lugarda (Lu) and his father Willie. Richie will be lovingly remembered by all who knew him as the life of the party, and as the jovial spirit who would give the shirt off his back for someone in need.
Left to honor Richard and remember his love are his father Willie Maestas; Siblings: Susan DeHerrera (spouse Frank), Cathy Sullivan (spouse Patrick), Valerie Maestas, Kelly Maestas (spouse Kim) and Joseph Maestas (spouse Angela); three children: Tyrone Maestas, Uriah Maestas (spouse Michelle) and Bianca Maestas-Rogan (Spouse Raymond), 10 Grandchildren: Uriah Maestas Jr., Blake Maestas, Avianna Maestas, Eve Maestas, Messiah Rogan, Sara Sue Watkins, Nathan Gore, Haleigh Valbusch, Alizae Rogan, Raymond Rogan Jr.; and countless loving nieces and nephews.
Richard was preceded in death by his mother Lugarda and sister in law Angela Maestas. Richard will be remembered as a bright, shining light in his community.
A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at 10:00 am. at the Rogers Family Mortuary in Monte Vista, 404 Morris Street. Burial of ashes will follow at Monte Vista Cemetery. The family will greet friends at the funeral home Wednesday from 9:00 am until the time of service.
The Maestas family would like to extend our gratitude to all the staff at the Penrose Hospital in Colorado Springs for their attentiveness and loving care. Flowers may be sent in Richard’s name to Rogers Family Mortuary in Monte Vista.
