Santiago Coronado

Feb. 20, 1929 – July 22, 2013

A memorial service for Santiago Coronado was held July 27 at First Baptist Church in Basin. Santiago, 84, died July 22 in Casper.

He was born Feb. 20, 1929, in Hondo, Texas, the son of Aruellio and Adelina Coronado. In August 1950, Santiago married the love of his life, Consuelo “Connie” Molina, in Odem, Texas.

Santiago was a hard-working farmer. In his spare time, not that a farmer and father of eight really has much, he loved to play and watch baseball. He was a member of the Eagles Club and the National Rifle Association.

Santiago was a true family man who dearly loved his wife and family.

His mother and father, Aruellio and Adelina Coronado; two grandsons, Travis Owen Coronado of Powell and Jeffrey Leroy Coronado of Basin; one granddaughter, Tara Rose of Temecula, Calif.; two sons-in-law, Cliff Miller of Basin and Wayne Turner of Avon Park, Fla., and six sisters preceded him in death.

He is survived by his wife, Consuelo of Manderson; three sons and two daughters-in-law, John and Leona Coronado of Casper, David and Debbie Coronado of Worland and Santiago Coronado Jr. of Texas; five daughters and four sons–in-law, Yolanda “Yoly” of Avon Park, Fla., Sali and Kevin Hall of Basin, Rebecca and Kent Miller of Worland, Sandy and Corey Sanders of Temecula, Calif., and Virginia and Scott Mattis of Greybull; one sister, Maria Salazar of McAllen, Texas; 28-plus grandchildren and 21-plus great-grandchildren.

A private family service to scatter Santiago’s ashes will be held at a later date.

Memorial contributions can be made to Connie Coronado at Security State Bank in Basin.
