"My father, Lt. Colonel John Dear, in the 1940s in the Army Air Corp. He trained Air Force pilots for WW II in the 40s, flew in the Berlin Airlift in the late 40s, and was the commander of radar bases in the 50s, including one in Japan where we all were for 2 years. He was a "career" USAF officer, serving overseas several times as well as in various places in the US. I'm thankful for his service and for all veterans and what they have done for our country." Daughter Elizabeth Dear

Both sides of my family trace their roots in the Santa Fé area to the 1600s.  In the earlier years they were primarily farmers, builders, craftsmen, artists (wood carvers and weavers), and educators.  I graduated from SFHS & NMSU and received my BA & MA in Speech & Language Pathology. I divide my time between Santa Fé and the San Francisco Bay Area.
