David E. Peterson, Jr.

Dave embraced the Summit County life style, and his passion for the mountains and for skiing was endless. His love for Colorado and its countryside through his work with conservation easements allowed him to see more of the mountains and truly make a difference. Skiing was another of Dave’s passions. He loved it so much that he became a ski instructor at Keystone so that others could share his devotion and thrill of the sport. He loved what he was doing and was well respected in his field. His kids, Jessica and Gregory, his partner, Margot, and his friends were paramount. He will be missed by all of us, particularly his friends on skis and his friends on wheels. So … each time you ski your favorite run or ride a pass, please take a moment to reflect on Dave, and know that his spirit is with you! A celebration of his life will be held Aug. 23, 3:30 p.m. outside at the Lakewood Heritage Center Amphitheater, 801 S. Yarrow St. Lakewood, CO. Donations can be made to the American Cancer Society or Aspen Valley Land Trust, 320 Main St. Carbondale, CO 81623. A motorcycle memorial ride will be held Aug. 28. The ride will start at Susie’s Bar & Grill, 17999 W. Colfax Ave., Golden, CO 80401at 10 a.m. and lead to the Tiki Bar at Lake Dillon Marina. Memorial riders will have a chance to mix and mingle with Dave’s Summit County friends in celebration of his life.
