I checked online records for the County Clerk of Bernalillo County. They have one document, a Power of Attorney for James given to an Aguilar Nicanor, recorded 1/4/1990.
Because of his age and potential of no living family members in the area, there might not be an obituary published. I'd contact the cemetery to see what records they have. If they have the funeral company officiating, THEY may have the records you need.
