Gary L. Boden of Hotchkiss died July 4, 2017, in Ontario, Canada, doing what he enjoyed -- traveling, playing golf and fishing for "the big ones." He was 69.
A celebration of life will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 29, at the Hotchkiss Elks Lodge #1807.
Mr. Boden is survived by his wife, Wanda Boden of Hotchkiss; his son, Brian (Bev) Boden of Buffalo, Wyo.; his daughter, Jennifer of Rocky Ford; two brothers, Tim (Sue) Boden of Oakland, Mich., and Scott (Sally) Boden of Mt. Clemens, Mich.; four grandchildren, Lane, Eva, Tera and Kodi; and extended family.
The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the charity of one's choice.
Taylor Funeral Service and Crematory is handling the arrangements.
