AMPARÁN – David Francisco Amparán, 57, a resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, sadly passed away on Saturday, April 8, 2023. He is survived by his loving son, Dominique Amparán and wife Angela; beautiful granddaughters, Sierra and Serenity; loving grandson, Josiah; and mother of Dominique, his first love Dawn Beck, who he remained close friends with, as well as her daughter, Jordai Beck, who he loved and treated as his own, along with Jordai’s son, Cashius who he also loved as his grandson; his siblings, Erlinda Sedillo (Solomon), Edmundo Amparán (Kim), Victor Amparán (Sylvia), Victoria Muller (Jacob), Diana Amparán, Raul Amparán, Eunice Amparán-Ortega (Albert), and Rosa Martinez (Max); as well as many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews. David was preceded in death by his father, Francisco Javier Amparán, his mother, Adelfa Amparán, his eldest brother Javier Francisco Amparán, and his nephew Carlos Muller. David was a talented, expert tradesman and worked extremely hard with a great deal of wisdom and integrity as a Field Supervisor in carpentry/drywall framing and finishing for over 40 years with Buck Duncan Construction Inc. In his early years, he also worked with his brothers for his dad’s family-owned cement finishing business, Amparán and Sons. He was so proud to work by his dad’s side and aspired to be just like him. His family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors admired his exceptional tradesman abilities, artistry, expertise, and valued guidance when making decisions regarding any home improvements. He enjoyed getting together with all his family and friends, having quality time, laughter and sharing his quick wit with jokes, hilarious comebacks, and one-liners. He was also an incredibly special Godfather, always demonstrating his love and support for his godchildren, guiding and leading them by example to know and love God. He also enjoyed his sisters’ and nieces’ home cooking, which reminded him of his mama’s cooking. When he was younger, he enjoyed dancing and won many dance contests. He was an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys, and he also enjoyed golfing, fishing, camping, and listening to multiple genres of music including oldies, Mexican music, and old school jams. When he arrived at a family gathering, everyone always rushed with excitement to greet him with so much love, hugs, and kisses. On Sundays, he enjoyed attending the Spanish Mass at Our Lady of the Assumption (OLA) Catholic Church, continuing the tradition his parents began since the early 1960s as parishioners of OLA Church. After his father passed, he moved back home to ensure his mother was safe and never alone. With the help of his family, he ensured her essential needs were always met and did so with such love and exceptional care each day. He also took his mother to church every week for Sunday Mass for the last 16 years of her life and was a constant companion for her until she took her last breath. He also provided a respite to his eldest sister to care for his nephew with special needs. He was very family oriented and enjoyed getting together with them for lunch after church on Sundays. The Lord allowed him to attend his last church service on Palm Sunday with his OLA Parish family. He lived a very fulfilling life, surrounded by his family and friends. He was a very compassionate, kind, humble, loving, generous, loyal, thoughtful, charismatic, and respected man with a tremendous faith in God. He exemplified what it is to be a true Christian, always showing his love in his actions and deeds for those in need. David will be missed immensely, and his memory will live on in the hearts of all those who knew and loved him, as well his countless acts of service and meticulous tradesmanship in many of their homes and businesses across the State of New Mexico. Rosary will be recited on Friday, May 12, 2023, at 10:30 a.m., followed by Mass at 11:00 a.m., at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church, Lomas at Tennessee.
