Salome Machuca, 75, beloved Father and Brother, was called to his eternal resting place on June 10, 2019. He entered this world on October 1, 1943 in Marfa, TX, born to Salome Sr. and Magdalena (Cano) Machuca. In his teenage years he worked at the Runyan Ranch in Mayhill, NM but constantly kept his eye on the oil field business. In the late 1960s his great friend Jose Granado helped him obtain a job with Kersey Drilling Company. This was a start to a 45-year career in the oil business. In 1976, he joined Newmont Oil Company and worked for them until 1984 when Yates Petroleum Corporation purchased the operator rights. He retired from Yates in 2014 and changed his focus to walking and helping out where he could. He enjoyed fishing and camping along with attending Our lady of Grace church and praying the rosary.
He is preceded in death by his Mother and Father Salome Machuca Sr. and Magdalena Machuca, his brothers Andres Machuca, Salvador Machuca Sr., Ruben Machuca, Alvaro Machuca and sister Elena Jurado.
