Kevin Cojo "Coach"

September 14, 1964 — June 10, 2023

Kevin Cojo, age 58, passed away June 10, 2023, in Roswell, New Mexico. Kevin was born on September 14, 1964, in Alamogordo, New Mexico to the late Leno and Dolly Cojo.

Mr. Cojo was a proud family man. His greatest joy in life was spending time surrounded by his loved ones. He was a dedicated father who was always present to support his children at their athletic events. He was always their number one fan, never missing a game. Kevin inspired many children as a little league football coach. In his spare time, Kevin loved listening to music and camping. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Kevin proudly served his community as a BIA officer, conservation officer, and call center operator at Inn of The Mountain Gods. When not working or coaching, Mr. Cojo stayed busy as a handyman around his house always taking pride in his home.
