It is with a heavy heart that I must tell you our dear friend and former member of Mile Hi Chapter, American GI Forum, John Ortiz has passed away. I got a communication from his son, Lenny, that he passed on Monday. Per John's request there will be no services. My prayers and condolences go out to the family and his friends. Please keep his soul in your prayers.

It is with great sadness that I send this message of the loss of the grandson of Laura Flores. 
On behalf of the American GI Forum we send condolences to the family of Laura Flores.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
