Adolfo Urbina

February 22, 1931 — February 24, 2023

Adolfo “Chato” Urbina Jr., age 92, went home to be with the Lord on February 24, 2023, in

Milan, NM. Born in Gallup on February 22, 1931, he would go on to enlist in the United States

Army at the age of 17. This choice would take him across the Pacific to Korea where he

heroically served his nation and earned the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, and the Silver Star during

the Korean Conflict. A humble and quiet man, he returned to New Mexico when his duty was

done and married the beautiful and resilient Louisa Chavez. Together, they would build an adobe

home and raise their family on a diet of faith, hope, and love. Adolfo was a man of many talents

and he could always be relied upon to help build and fix many things.

Adolfo is predeceased in death by his parents: Adolfo Urbina Sr. and Catherine (Ascencio)

Urbina, wife Louisa (Chavez) Urbina, son Albert Urbina, sister Alice Lopez, and brother Leo

Urbina. Adolfo is survived by two sons: Ricardo Urbina and his wife Genevieve (Lucero) Urbina

of Albuquerque, NM and Orlando Urbina of Grants, NM. He is also survived by his brother

Andrew Urbina and his wife Ann Urbina.

Adolfo has 8 grandchildren: Bernadette Urbina, Seth Urbina, Alicia Urbina, Lee Urbina,

Jessica Urbina, Greg Urbina, Diego Urbina and Johnathan Urbina.

Adolfo has 8 great grandchildren: Miranda Urbina, Nathaniel Urbina, Samuel Urbina, Nicholas

Urbina, Aubrianna Urbina, Nova Urbina, Noah Urbina, and Roy Chavez.

We will miss his presence and guidance; however, the family is happy that he is back with his

beloved wife. A rosary will be held at 9:30 am on March 6 th at St. Vivian Catholic Church. This

will be followed by the mass at 10:00 am with internment at Grants Memorial Park/Cemetery. A

reception will be held at the Cow Palace on Robert Road in Grants, NM to continue the

celebration of Adolfo’s life and love.
