Sabus, John Thomas  
John Thomas (Tom) Sabus, son, brother, friend, athlete, competitor, teacher, mentor, businessman ... passed away peacefully at the age of 57 at his family home in Arvada Sunday night, June 5, 2016, of extremely rare natural causes. Tom was born on Oct. 4, 1958 in Wichita, Kansas to Francis John and Gertha L. Sabus where he went through elementary school as a happy young guy. He then moved with his family to Arvada where he became involved with, and excelled in, organized sports - first at Oberon Junior High School and then at Pomona High School, where he was All-State in tennis, All-Conference in basketball and played legion baseball. Tom then attended Mesa College in Grand Junction on a tennis scholarship where he competed - and placed highly in - several National Collegiate Championship tournaments. Tom then coached the Wheat Ridge High School boys tennis team for many years. His teams always played hard and were successful. They notably won the Colorado State Championship in 1991 against much larger schools and in 2000 they broke the famous "Creek Streak" of winning tennis team matches. Tom also taught high school, coached privately, consulted on tennis equipment, tennis-related issues and tennis facility planning and ran a successful sports-related business. He spent most of the last decade fighting hard against a mysterious disease from unknown causes, with no direct medication or therapies, very little research and, currently, no hope for a cure. Tom never gave up and kept a positive attitude throughout his long ordeal. He was proud to have the new Wheat Ridge High School tennis facility named after him and he was proud to be Luxembourgian. Tom was very proud of his immediate and extended family. He was especially proud of his nieces Malissa, Simone, Erin, Saya, Sophia, Santana and Lauren and his nephew Quinn. Tom had a good life. He wishes all the best to those whose life he touched and who touched his and he sends them all his love. Tom´s spirit is now forever free and it will live with us into eternity. John Thomas Sabus is interned at, and will be buried at, Mount Olivet Cemetery, 12801 W. 44th Ave., Wheat Ridge. Funeral services will be at Saint Joan of Arc Catholic Church, 12735 W. 58th Ave., Arvada, on Friday, June 17, at 11 a.m. The Sabus family

Storm, Gerry D.  
Gerry D. Strom, an amazing man and friend to many, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, December 7, 2015 at St Luke's Hospital in Denver CO. He was 56 years old. Gerry is survived by his sister, Jeanette Strom and her husband Bob Holmes. Although he rarely showed it, Gerry had not been in good health for quite some time, and had seen many specialists in an attempt to understand and recover from this mystery. He was admitted to Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver, Colorado on November 25, 2015 and diagnosed with "amyloidosis", a rare blood disorder. During a medical procedure on December 7, Gerry went into cardiac arrest and did not recover. Gerry was born in Laramie, Wyoming on April 27, 1959. He was raised on a sheep ranch on the outskirts of Laramie and graduated from Laramie High School in 1977. Growing up, Gerry had many friends and was involved in 4H, played baseball, and enjoyed cars. Over time, Gerry's true love became Bull Riding. He always said his friends were his family! He loved his dogs Deacon Blues and Butkus, After attending a real estate seminar he began buying rental properties in Laramie and maintained a successful property management company there. During the late 1980's, a persistent cough developed while working construction in Colorado. A visit to doctors in Laramie resulted in the removal of one of his lungs, ostensibly for cancer and changed him forever. When not riding bulls, he worked drilling water wells and in construction. Gerry owned and operated Specialty Roofing in Laramie through 1993, He later moved to Palmer Lake, Colorado and was a partner in Specialty Homes through 2002. Everyone respected his work ethic, responsibility and skill. Through Bull Riders Only, Gerry helped grow televised bull riding and was as at ease with the riders as he was with the "suits". While traveling with Bull Riders Only in Brazil he fell in love with the country and the people. Gerry traveled to Brazil as often as he could and had plans to live out his years there. Over the last decade Gerry spent countless hours working cattle and riding his horse Jake on Noe's Eagle Mountain Ranch north of Palmer Lake. He held others to a very high standard and inspired them to live up to it, and was also able to forgive even when others could not. His integrity and honesty could not be impeached. Those who were privileged to know him are better people for it. Until the last day he retained his warm and bright smile and quiet nature bravely taking each step as it came and always thanking those caring for him. Gerry will be remembered for his integrity, his commitment to doing the right thing, and his warm and genuine smile which captivated everyone that he met. Services will be Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 11 am at Kenny Noe Ranch, 525 West Noe Ranch Road, Larkspur, CO, followed by gathering to celebrate & reminisce at O'Malley's,104 CO 105, Palmer Lake, CO. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Cal Farley's Boys Ranch, www. calfarley.org.
