Everett Joseph "Joe" Adolf Obituary
Everett Joseph Adolf (Joe), 48, of Bethune (formerly of Kersey) passed away on Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014 at Saint Anthony's Hospital in Lakewood.

Joe was born on March 30, 1966 in Burlington, to Everett and Lois (Willenborg) Adolf and was the second of four children.

He attended Bethune School until his sophomore year when he transferred to Burlington High School and graduated in 1984.

During his high school years, Joe set many track and field records in the 100m dash, 200m dash, and the 400m and 800m relays where he still holds those records today.

Joe attended the University of Northern Colorado and was in the Army Reserves from 1984 to Jan. 12, 1990 when he was honorably discharged from the armed forces.

On Sept. 1, 1990 he married Kristen at St. Catherine Catholic Church in Burlington, and was later divorced in 2011.

They resided in Kersey and had two children, Erica, born on Aug. 22, 1987 and Tressa, born on June 2, 1992.

Joe worked as an electrician for several years before starting his own heating and air conditioning business, Adolf Heating and Cooling in August 2009 to current.

Joe loved hunting, camping and spending time with his family and friends.

He was a member of St. Catherine Catholic Church and also the local 4-H club where he showed market steers and pigs during his primary school years.

Joe was known as a kind, caring man with a big heart who loved to help others. Although he was reserved and quiet at times, he would always make you laugh with his funny comments when you least expected.

Survivors are his two daughters, Erica Nava (husband Guillermo) of Evans, and Tressa Adolf of Loveland; mother, Lois Adolf of Burlington; his two sisters Kim Adolf Thompson of Eaton, Allegra Adolf of Burlington, brother Jason Adolf (wife Alicia) of Yuma; nephew Trent Thompson and niece Jenna Thompson of Eaton; niece Jessica Skinner of Burlington and three granddaughters, Briella, Audrina, and Vienna Nava.
