    My Bro passed yesterday...........

    Yesterday 8/5/10 at 9:12PM MDT, my brother of 56 years, Theodore L. Raff, passed away after suffering a severe stroke at his home in Los Lunas, NM the previous day.
    He was a Vietnam vet and served his nation in the US Air Force for 23 years. He received many awards including The Bronze Star and Purple Heart and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel. He completed his law degree while in the service and later served as an Assistant District Attorney for Bernalillo County, NM for 12 years.
    He finally went into private practice for several years and retired at age 73 only to pass on 3 years later, just 24 days short of his 77th birthday
    He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Helen, His Son Theodore Raff III and his daughter Lori. Also by his brothers Ronald, Edward and Fred. He was preceeded in death by his Mother, Father and daughter Karla.
    He will be interred with his father, in the Santa Fe National Cemetery in Santa Fe, NM.
    A staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, he frequently hunted and actively participated in the shooting sports.
    I received one of my first guns from him, a WWII era CZ .380 automatic.
    His friendship, wisdom and compassion will be sadly missed by all. So long bro...

    Sorry to hear that, you and your brothers family are in our prayers
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
