Upon his return to Colorado, he worked at the Project Support Senior Center in Idaho Springs, driving locals to appointments and running a fitness class.
He had some health struggles but kept an upbeat and compassionate attitude.
He is survived by his brother, Lou.
A celebration of life event will be at the Idaho Springs Senior Center on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 11 a.m.
