Obituary Condolences

James Michael "Mike" Moots, 57 of Ault, Colo., passed away Nov. 30, 2008, at Poudre Valley Hospital.
Mike was born Nov. 30, 1951, in Vaughn to James and Pherrel (Robertson) Moots.
He served in the Army, where he was stationed in Italy and Germany. He attended the University of Arizona and received a bachelor's degree in business administration.
Mike married Sharon Bergman on Feb. 23, 1978, in Tucson, Ariz. They moved to Loveland, Colo., in 1986 and then to Ault in 2002 into a home that Mike designed and built. Mike was a self-employed furniture upholsterer with a reputation of being a very skilled craftsman. He was multi-talented in many areas that allowed him to work with his hands, which he preferred to sitting at a desk.
A skilled compound bow hunter, he also enjoyed fishing and anything that involved the outdoors.
Mike was survived by his wife of 30 years, Sharon, brother Doug (Peggy) Moots, mother-in-law Donna Bergman, brother-in-law Gary (Shari) Bergman, sisters in law Jolene Thomas and Julie Bergman, two nieces and a nephew.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Pherrel Moots, and father-in-law, Cleo Bergman.

The family will greet friends from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 15, 2009, at the Alamogordo Funeral Home.
