Lorenzo Antonio Pacheco, 40, was born on May 1, 1981, in Alamosa the firstborn child of Richard and Marie Pacheco, and passed away on August 26, 2021. While his time on earth was short, his spirit and the impact he had on others will live on forever.
An avid sports fan, Lorenzo knew and could recount statistics, wins, losses and the best players for football, basketball, and other sports. His early support of the Las Vegas Raiders never faltered.
Sunday dinners at his father’s home with his daughter, sister, brother-in-law, nieces, nephew, and paternal grandmother, were one of the things he always looked forward to and enjoyed immensely. Growing up on the Forbes Trinchera Ranch instilled a love for the outdoors and a keen appreciation of wildlife.
Lorenzo graduated from Sierra Grande High School. He attended Adams State University while at the same time raising his beloved daughter as a single parent, and working in various construction projects with his father. The elderly held a special place in his heart, and he especially enjoyed remodeling their homes to ensure that any disability or accommodation was taken care of. He recently worked at the District Attorney’s office.
Lorenzo is survived by his daughter, Victoria Pacheco, step-daughters Jannelle Flores and Genna Aguilar both of Alamosa, CO; his father, Richard Pacheco from Fort Garland, CO, his sister, Ana Pacheco-Sarmiento, brother-law Nicolas Sarmiento, nieces Mariza, Olivia, and Eliana, and nephew Antonio, all from Alamosa. He is also survived by his paternal grandmother, Anna Maria Pacheco from Blanca, CO, as well as numerous uncles, aunts, Godchildren, cousins, and friends.
He is preceded in death by his beloved mother Marie Pacheco, his maternal great grandmother, Sara Salas, his maternal grandmother, Della Gallegos, and his paternal grandfather Ruben Pacheco.
