Sad News – Longtime New Mexico lawmaker Larry Larrañaga dies
October 10, 2018 11:48 AM
SANTA FE, N.M. – Longtime State Representative Larry Larranaga passed away overnight at the age of 80.
In August, Larranaga announced that he would end his campaign for re-election and resigned a few weeks later. He served nearly 24 years in the House of Representatives.
Although he was a Republican, Larranaga was known for working with those on both sides of the aisle and was a well-respected lawmaker in New Mexico.
He is survived by his daughter, wife Charletta, son Alan and five grandchildren.
“Larry Larrañaga was the dean of the House Appropriations and Finance Committee,” said House Republican Leader Nate Gentry (R-Albuquerque). “His quiet determination and steadfast approach served as an example for all of his colleagues in the Legislature. He loved New Mexico, and he dedicated his life trying to make it a better place to live. My deepest condolences are with his wife, Charletta, and his family.”
“Rep. Larry Larrañaga was one of the legislators who believed in a higher calling when it came to politics, often rising above the sometimes petty arguments to truly lead our state,” said Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller. “He championed core values of process and fairness and made it his business to understand fiscal policy in New Mexico. Larry taught me a lot and I’m proud to have carried bills with him, and to have stood side by side to bridge partisan divides on some of the toughest issues that faced our state. My heart goes out to his friends, family, and the State of New Mexico. We’ve lost a legislative legend.”
“Larry Larrañaga was truly one of a kind – a selfless public servant and venerated leader who ran for public office because he wanted to make New Mexico a better place,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi. “Larry never sought credit or attention, but his work as a lawmaker, a cabinet secretary, and a small business owner undoubtedly gave New Mexico a brighter future. It was a pleasure and an honor to know Larry on a personal and professional level. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with him over the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Charletta and all of his loved ones as they mourn his passing.”
