James Demmitt Obituary
James Wyatt "Colorado Jim" Demmitt has finished his life's journey on the morning of March 3, 2016 surrounded by his family. Jim was born to the late Troy Wyatt and Betty Ann (Gillum) Demmitt, in his mother's hometown of Watonga, OK. He grew up and attended school in Kremmling, CO. Jim enjoyed a childhood with his siblings, full of mischievous fun. After graduation Jim attended Colorado School of Mines during which he was made aware of an opportunity with Hewlett Packard and that began his professional journey. He worked in the plating department in Loveland with Hewlett Packard and after an early retirement he worked for several plating companies in Arizona and Utah. Hard work was a hallmark for Jim and he continued to work up until his final days even receiving emails while in Hospice care. Most recently he was a Sales Manager with UIC, a company he enjoyed working for, and gained many friendships along the way with coworkers and clients. When Jim was not working, he enjoyed being in the mountains and photography. He loved sports with a passion and was able to cheer his beloved Broncos on for his last Super Bowl with his son. Jim enjoyed the simple pleasures of life - walking into a local "watering hole" and enjoying conversation with friends and complete strangers. He wanted to get back to Colorado to live and was able to convince his company that he could make it to the airport in two hours from Estes Park. He savored each moment of life in Estes Park and just walking around taking in the sights after traveling during the week for work. He was preceded in death by his parents, and siblings, Jerry Demmitt, and Janet Sue Demmitt. He leaves to cherish his memory his son James Wyatt Demmitt II and his wife Jamie; brother John Demmitt; sisters, Jamie Jones, and Janice Demmitt; numerous nieces, nephews, and many special friends. A celebration of Jim's life will be held on April 30th at 2 PM at the Estes Park Brewery in Estes Park, CO. Memorial contributions may be made to The V Foundation for Cancer Research (http://www.jimmyv.org/) in care of Allnutt Funeral Service, 702 13th Street, Greeley, CO 80631.
