Jim “Jimma” Samora of Albuquerque, New Mexico passed away on October 14, 2022. Born to Pedro and Genoveva Samora in Tierra Amarilla on July 25, 1954, Jim and his family moved to Albuquerque where he was raised and continued to raise his own children. He attended Albuquerque High School and continued on to New Mexico State on a track scholarship. Jim would eventually join the Albuquerque Police Department serving 22 years and retiring with honors. Jim was an active member of Los Carnales Motorcycle Club and served as Sergeant in Arms for the National Chapter.
