Hendricks, Ray  
Ray Hendricks December 13, 1938 - December 16, 2014 Ray Hendricks of Grand Junction, Colorado, passed into the presence of his Lord, surrounded by family, on the evening of December 16, 2014. He was blessed to be under the exemplary care of HopeWest Hospice and, in lieu of flowers, Ray's wife and family would be ever so grateful for donations of any amount made to HopeWest in his memory. Ray was born on December 13, 1938, and was delivered by his father in the midst of a winter storm that prevented his mother from leaving their house on the eastern plains of Colorado. Little did the newborn, Ray, know that within hours of his birth, the love of his life, Roseanne (Chiodo) Hendricks, was being delivered in her grandmother's home in Aspen, Colorado. Ray spent most of his childhood in Cedaredge, Colorado. He and Rosie ("Annie") eventually found one another in Grand Junction, married, and combined their families on November 30, 1980. Ray and Rosie would camp, fish, hunt, laugh, and love together for the next 34 years. Rosie survives. Ray was an intelligent, hardworking man; he retired from Wagner Equipment ten years ago - on the very same day that Rosie retired after 25 years with Coors Ceramic. Over the last ten years, they traveled extensively together and spent the winter months in Tucson, Arizona amidst a whole new set of close friends. Ray leaves behind his cherished son, Tyson "TR" Hendricks of Grand Island, Nebraska, and step-sons, Danny (Rhonda "Buffy") Moore of Grand Junction, and Tim (Paula) Moore of Palisade. All of Ray's siblings but for his sister, Dorothy (Dorman) Frost of Cedaredge, Colorado, predeceased him. He cherished his many nieces, nephews, and their families. Ray's grandchildren and great-grandchildren, by marriage, were truly loved and nurtured by him: Derrick, Grant, Matthew, Nyssa, and Stephanie Moore; Ashley (Struwe) Unverferth and her husband, Patrick, and their children, Ethan, Mason, and Emily Unverferth; and Michael Struwe and his wife, Sarah (Younger), and their children, Reed, Finn, Grey, and Max Struwe. A memorial service is planned for 10:00 a.m. on Friday, December 19, at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary in Grand Junction. Burial will take place in the Cedaredge Cemetery immediately thereafter. A special thank you is extended to Dr. Kurt Spriggs and his staff, as well as the medical staff at St Mary's Hospital, and the many care providers of HopeWest Hospice.

Prather, Robert  
Robert Douglas Prather October 23, 1943 - December 18, 2013 "Smile" , a favorite old song of yours helped us through this first year. The words in the song are so "you", as to how you lived your life. Yes "though tears have been ever so near" we've enjoyed remembering your life through the many gifts you left us. We have spent the year traveling to many of your favorite places, visiting and sharing with family and friends, your sense of humor and animated stories that I'm sure have become "taller tales" as the stories unfolded, leaving us with smiles and laughter. We're keeping your sense of history alive and caring for our "Old Folks", and remembering where we came from and keeping our flag and country in our hearts. As far as you were concerned there were no strangers you met along the way, just the beginning of new friendships. On a trip to Vega Lodge this fall, we found ourselves caught up in the large herd of mainly white faced Herefords and I thought, how appropriate, remembering you up yonder instructing us as to how to handle our Herefords. This brought back a long ago memory of my first time trailing cattle up Conn Creek to the summer mountain range. My horse, being a little skittish, concerned me. How would she react heading up the very steep and narrow shale trail to the top? Your advice, "not to worry, just give your horse rain, she'll take care of herself and if you fear heights, don't look down". For years after that, trailing up Conn was a piece of cake. Forever describes you very well. What you started years ago, continues on with the marriage of our granddaughter and new great-grandson, and a new grand baby in the oven. What a good year. There's a favorite quote of yours above the photo of Ute Chief Buckskin Charlie at the Montrose Ute Indian Museum. "There is no death, only a change of worlds." Til then my love. Your family.
