In Memory

Richard Zanotti

Sadly I need to inform everyone that Richard Zanotti has passed away. I only know that he passed around February 11, 2024. Richard was a municipal judge in Sandoval county. I was hoping to get him to attend our 50th Reunion, but he had plans to officate a family members wedding in Colorado.

May he Rest in Peace,

So sad to hear about the passing of Richard. We were friends at HHS and he was so kind to me always. May he rest in peace.

Richard was a star as a judge.  Fair, dedicated.  Liked by everyone.  No funny business.  He was also a lobbiest in Santa Fe for many year.  I am so sad that he is gone.  Another great class member who make a diiference to all he interacted with.

Richard and I were good friends at Jefferson Jr High and Highland as we lived only 3 or 4 blocks from each other. He was a good athelete as I recall and a fun guy to be around. I spent a lot of time at his house. After high school I lost contact with him and always wanted to know what career he would end up pursuing. I think his dad was involved with Budwieser beer company as I recall. He had an older sister Bonnie who I think was in my sister's class. I was glad to read Steve Komadina's comment that he became a respected prominent judge. Perhaps this was just a coincidence but about two weeks ago I thought about him in a dream. Rest In Peace Richard. I'll see you on the other side some day.
