David Gerd passed away on Oct. 3, 2015, in Delta, Colo.
He was a much-loved son, brother and friend to many. He did lots more favors than he received.
Quiet and somewhat reserved, Dave did have opinions based on experiences, ability and observation. In conversation, you understood this.
He was self-employed most all of his life with years in construction, mining and reclamation.His reputation brought the Nature Conservancy to have him and his family reclaim the High Creek Fen in South Park, Colo. This wetland is a unique, astonishing vestige of the last Ice Age.
In memory of Dave, begin your spiritual journey. Read, as he had, Psalm 83, verse 18. Plant a tree; we all share the same air, help make it better.
A memorial service took place on Oct. 17, 2015, at Confluence Park in Delta, Colo.
