Charles Jerry  Narramore
9/25/39 - 3/7/20
Charles Jerry Narramore (Poncho) passed peacefully in his sleep on Saturday evening, March 7, 2020 following a long illness.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Lanette, his son, Jeff, his wife Margie and grandson, Keith. His brother Norman aka Bud and his wife, Delores, and his sister, Bobbie. He is preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Norma, his brother, Wayne and sister Ada.
He was born in Roswell, NM and was given the nickname that followed him throughout his entire life "Poncho" by his Uncles shortly after his birth. He lived in Weatherford, Texas prior to moving to Silver City in 1973 after a weekend visit with friends turned into a permanent move.
He owned and operated several businesses including a motorcycle shop (Weatherford Cycle Sales), mattress company (Willhite Mattress Company), a pizzeria (Gino's Pizzeria), and pillow factory (Norma Cushion Company) before resettling in Silver City.
He was a proud member of the local 412 Pipefitters and Welders' Union for over 45 years and had many fond memories of the friends he met while working on different projects.
One of his lifelong joys was flying and he was a member of many flying clubs before fulfilling his dream of owning a property with a private runway and airplane hangar. He found his dream property in Cliff, NM and even though he was no longer able to fly, he was happiest when clearing the runway, sitting next to his plane in his hangar and sharing a cold beer with friends.
He loved to watch motorcycle racing and NASCAR racing and enjoyed many Sunday afternoons following the Earnhardts and more recently, Chase Elliott. He enjoyed cultivating his garden and fruit trees in his free time.
Poncho never met a stranger and those who knew him always felt like they had known him all their life.
There will be a private family service held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution in his name to your favorite charity.

Sorry to hear of Poncho's passing. Your dad a.k.a. Bud always thought highly of him which was the best endorsement any of us could attain.
