Local Vietnam veteran honored by American Legion


Frankie asked his friend Ruben to go into the Army with him on the buddy system. Ruben said that Frankie told him, “I want you to come with me, I’m afraid to die alone.” After much contemplation and two days of drinking with Frankie, Ruben enlisted in the Army with his friend. In June 1967 Conrado married his high school sweetheart Dina Gonzales. In September he left his now pregnant wife and was sent to South Vietnam. On March 3, 1968 at 3:50 a.m. Conrado’s base camp near Ban Me Thuot was attacked. Specialist V Conrado Bilducia was performing his duties as the company Charge of Quarters when the attack started. He was on his way to the command post bunker where he would begin to organize and dispatch troops to defend the compound against an enemy ground attack. He had just left the orderly room when a mortar shell exploded a few feet away from him, killing him instantly. Ruben, who was also in Vietnam at the time, was notified a few days later. He would have the honor and sad duty of escorting his friend’s body from San Francisco back to his home in the Copper Basin. Conrado was laid to rest in the Hayden

Mountain View Cemetery with full military honors. Another friend of Rubens from Hayden had died a month earlier in Vietnam, Richard “Dickie” Contreras. Although it was a time of deep sadness for Ruben, it would also be a time of joy. Ruben got to meet and hold his son for the first time. Ruben was able to spend 10 days at home before returning to Vietnam. Conrado’s son, Conrado Jr. would be born a few month’s later. Ruben believes that Conrado had a premonition about his own death. He had asked Ruben and his wife’s family to have his son raised by his “Nana”, Ruben’s mother, should he die. His request was granted. Ruben would help Conrado Jr. to learn about his father as he grew up. Ruben would choke up when talking about “Frankie”. He said “Frankie was a good man all his life beloved by all.” Ruben was able to visit the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. in 1998. He made a rubbing of Conrado’s name and used it in a photo display memorializing Conrado. Ruben said, “He has lived 66 years with me.” In some information that he gave me about Conrado, Ruben wrote, “Conrado was a quiet gentle man whose kindness and caring earned him many friends while on tour.” He said, “Those same comrades in arms offering monetary gifts to his widow back home. The letter of appreciation over shadowed by sadness and sympathy delivered to a fatherless home. Conrado

Ruben Gonzales of Oracle displays the photo memory of his friend and brother-in-law Conrado Francisco Bilducia. (John Hernandez photo) Francisco Bilducia never had a chance to meet his only child, a son Francisco Jr. who was born months after his all too early passing. Francisco Jr. spent many years of his life wondering about this brave man who made the ultimate sacrifice. Father and son were joined in eternal rest in April 2010.” Specialist V Conrado Francisco Bilducia was honored 45 years after making the ultimate sacrifice for his country. On Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013 American Legion Post #124 in Guadalupe was named Conrado Francisco Bilducia Post #124 in his memory at a ceremony in Phoenix. Conrado’s younger brother Rudolfo “Boy” Bilducia a Marine and member of the

Go Painlessly with THERA-GESIC. ®


By John Hernandez San Manuel Miner Conrado Francisco Bilducia was born Jan. 18, 1947 in Tempe, Ariz. and grew up in Dudleyville, Ariz., the son of Conrado F. Bilducia and Margaret L. Bilducia. He was raised by his grandparents Felix and Romula Ramirez. He attended school in Hayden from kindergarten through high school. In high school he lettered in track throwing the shot and discus and football where he was the starting offensive and defensive tackle. He graduated with his class in 1965. After school he went to work for Kennecott Copper Corporation. He was drafted in 1966 and chose to go into the Army so he could attend airplane maintenance school. His good friend and brother-in-law Ruben Gonzales still remembers the day “Frankie”, as Conrado was known, told him that he had been drafted. Ruben had just got off of work when Frankie told him he had just received his draft notice. They joked about it, Ruben feeling lucky that it was Frankie that would be going into the Army and not him, as the war in Vietnam was escalating and more young men were being drafted and sent overseas.

American Legion Post was in a position to make something happen to honor his brother. Conrado’s father was raised in Guadalupe and was a World War II veteran who lost a leg in combat. During his military service Conrado was awarded the Air medal, National Defense Service medal, Vietnam Campaign medal, Aircraft Crewman badge and Expert badge with rifle bar. Posthumously he was awarded the Army Commendation medal for Heroism, Purple Heart and the Good Conduct medal. His commendation letter dated March 17, 1968 read, “For heroism in connection with military operations against a hostile force: Specialist Five

Bilducia distinguished himself during an enemy mortar and ground attack. Even with mortar rounds falling in the immediate area, Specialist Bilducia continued to perform critically important security measures within the company orderly room throughout the attack. As he was moving from the orderly room to insure ready access to the reserve ammunition supply, several mortar rounds exploded nearby, inflicting him mortal wounds. His actions were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.” To all veterans: Thank you for your service and sacrifices.

Pastor’s Corner Freedom Comes With the Truth!

By Pastor Joe Palmer Fellowship Baptist Church We often find ourselves saying, “Why do I do this?” By “this” we often mean “sin.” “Why do I get so mad?” “Why do I give in to my addictions?” “Why do I hurt others?” The truth is we are not submitting ourselves to the truth. Jesus said: “…and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). After He said this, some who were listening to Him said, “We …have never been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You shall become free’?” “Jesus answered them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin.’” If we begin with the most important truth about Jesus Christ, and if we put our trust in Him to gain forgiveness and eternal life, then we will have the rationale and resources to live according to all the other truths about life. We will have the option of being free! Come and join us at Fellowship Baptist Church. Together we can be free. If you would like to talk with me (Pastor Joe Palmer of Fellowship Baptist) about it, email me at joeandsuzypal@

Volunteer Spotlight: Gary Birkett

Gary Birkett, the voice of the Great Punkin. (James Carnes photo)

By Rosalind Padilla Special to the CBN No matter what your age do you recall the number of times you walked through the mouth of the Great Punkin’ or waited for someone as they made their grand entrance at the mouth? Who was there to greet the little or big munchkins with his many Halloween jokes? What would the Great Punkin’ be without Dr. Pizza himself, Gary Birkett? Even though Halloween activities began in 1961 when Bill Belobradich and Jim Postel gathered the children in town for trick or treating and a costume parade, it was in 1975 when Bob Blasco and Gary Birkett devised the Great Punkin’ for children to parade through the mouth. Gary was chairperson and Master of Ceremonies. There were only a few years when others might have filled in as MC. Thirty eight years is a long time. Now you know why he has so many Halloween jokes which range from very funny to just simple riddles. Jokes like, “What do you do when a pumpkin is injured—go to the pumpkin patch,” or “What happens when it rains on a pumpkin? It gets wet.” We all laugh no matter how he tells it. Being the MC requires keeping up with the latest trends and cartoons otherwise parents who work hard on costumes might get mad if you call it wrong and the children are quick to correct. Gary was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, later moving to Columbus, Ohio with his parents. A family move to Sierra Vista changed his life forever when he met Lorraine at Sierra Vista High School, Lorraine’s family lived on Fort Hauchuca Base. These high school sweethearts were married in June 1972 and celebrated 41 years of marriage this summer. Around this same time the Berle Birketts moved to San Manuel and Gary followed, working as the San Manuel lechero (milkman) and also working for his Dad at the Sears store for 75 cents an hour. Gary and Lorraine moved to Kearny in 1974 to run the Sears store which was located in one of the buildings now currently owned by the ARC. Gary knew all of his customers by name, knew their likes and dislikes. In our household we had the first of anything new in the store because of his salesmanship. It was common to hear him say, you just have to have this new TV, eight track player (who knew), or the latest lawnmower. The great thing is that these products last a long time.

Recently a former customer walked in to Old Time Pizza and needed maintenance on a product and one man jokingly asked for a refund. One Christmas a man walked into Sears and Gary asked how his new router worked, was he enjoying it? The wife later came in madder than a hornet, Gary had given away her Christmas surprise. There are many more Sears stories but the best for this young entrepreneur is that at 21 years of age he purchased his store without help from family and successfully ran the business from 1974-1988. He took a short time off before entering the pizza business. When Gary takes on a project he does it full force and with passion. As a member of Rotary he has served as president for many years in succession and 15 years as the foreign exchange promoter for the District Rotary. Many families in this area helped by sharing their homes and family life with these great students from all over the world; the memories of these many students still linger and families still keep in touch with them. Have you ever thought about the three benches in the mall area, they were put there by the Rotary organization to commemorate the districts 75th anniversary, Gary served on the city council for one term, Ray School Board for four terms, Elks in all capacities, and the Kearny Chamber of Commerce long before it became the Copper Basin Chamber. As a chamber member he has served on the board, served as president, and has been in charge of every committee and special event ever held in the community. He has gathered wood for the Pioneer Days BBQ, watched over the BBQ pit, where those who were with him have so many stories to tell. He has entered the Pioneer Days parade sitting on his unique toilet seat on wheels. He and Lorraine have hosted the Chamber’s Christmas dinners. In the 1990s he met with the newly formed junior chamber members to discuss their purpose for existence and suggested that they should have a service project for the community since they were representing the businesses that sponsored them. It was one of the junior chamber members who suggested the Adopt a Highway program. With all of this it is no wonder that Gary was selected as Citizen of the Year in 1981. Receiving this honor has not stopped him from giving to his community. Has he ever sung Happy Birthday to you?

is so much more than Dr. Pizza The older he gets the harder it is to hold that last note. He is quick to grab his guitar and sing for guests at OTP. He introduces himself to all new customers. It is him who makes OTP number one. When attending the Bank of the West forum recently he addressed the group by saying, “I always thought people came to Kearny for my pizza but I just discovered that they came to do their banking and then eat pizza.” Gary has also served as a Little League coach. Actually his brain holds so much baseball trivia that he loves to challenge his customers with great questions especially trivia from the 50s and 60s, there are books on the counter of OTP where you can check your answers not only for baseball but history. Over these many years I have heard the jokes and listened to the trivia questions. Gary asked me, “Who was the ‘winningest’ pitcher in baseball?” It was Warren Spahn who pitched 363 winning games in his career and later developed his own Spahny 363 beer. When Gary was 10 years old and Warren Spahn was playing for the Milwaukee Braves, Spahn asked five boys to ride in his convertible and go for ice cream. Gary’s dad would not let Gary go. On his dad’s death bed he apologized to Gary for not letting Gary go with Warren Spahn for ice cream. Gary said, “It is OK Dad.” During this interview Gary whispered to me, “But it really wasn’t OK.” Gary honors his dad, Berle, every year

on Veterans Day by offering free pizza and med drink to all Veterans. Since 2000, Gary has accompanied his mother, Stella, to the annual reunion of the World War II navy service men who served on the USS De Grasse. His parents had attended this reunion for many years and now children and widow’s attend. There are two Vets still alive. “The ship will not sail till all are there and ready for the Eternal Cruise,” Gary said with a tear in his voice. His sister Mary was quick to tell me, “There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for my brother.” Many people have worked with Gary over the past 40 years. All say the same thing, “His jokes, his energy, his great ideas and passion for his community and customers defines who he is, what a great guy, wish we could tell you everything.” Lorraine and Gary have raised three children. Kelly has a degree in aeronautics technology and is a pilot for KTAR radio in Scottsdale Monday through Friday and manages Carefree Airport on Saturday and Sunday; Jody is married to Shane Olson and manages OTP; Jimmy works for Copper Basin Railway and OTP and is a first responder firefighter for Kearny Fire Dept. Quoting Gary, “Of all the things that I have done in the community, my claim to fame has to be the Great Punkin’, something I have enjoyed doing for 38 years.” Dr Pizza is #1!

Last year, Gary Birkett and Zola Hall were recognized by the Ray School Board for their years of service. (File photo)

Bearcats basketball season opens against Ft. Thomas By Andrew Luberda Copper Basin News The Bearcats boys’ basketball team will open their season on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at home versus the Ft. Thomas Apaches. Game time is 7:00 p.m. Head coach Jeff Cude has six returning varsity players on this year’s team, including Quentin Camacho, Dominic Bravo, Eli Cude, Seth Harmon, Destry Yocum and Josh Miramontes. Joe Rudy Lorona returns for his senior year. Three former JV players – juniors Ramon

Marinez and Roy White along with sophomore Adonis Klockenga – are on the varsity roster. The Bearcats will be without Erik Goodwin who led the team in scoring, rebounds and blocks last year. Despite the loss of Goodwin, Cude expects the ‘Cats to be a competitive team. “We don’t have much size this year, but we will have a very quick team,” said Cude in assessing this year’s roster. “They should be a lot of fun to watch play.” Coach Cude said their

quickness is one of the keys for a successful season. He says they’ll need to play a “fast paced game.” And, of course, health is an important factor in the success of any team. Most coaches have certain expectations of their players on the court and in the classroom. “I expect the players to always give 100% and show up with a positive attitude ready to work,” Cude answered when asked about the expectations of his players. “If they do this they will be successful both on and off the court.”
