Denver Harris Obituary

Denver Harris, 14, died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash.

Denver Harris was home alone on Steelhead Drive when the mudslide hit, said his great-uncle Wes Wicken. Denver loved snowboarding and having imaginary sword fights and "could get up in a class or room and get everyone laughing," Wicken said.

On Facebook pages, friends and family members shared stories of how Denver enjoyed going on long hikes in the mountains and once gave his mother his shirt to wear for the two miles back to the car after she fell in the water. A relative wrote that she has a box of Pop-Tarts waiting for him.
