Our friend Larry Ledwick passed away at the age of 70 on February 26, 2020 at his home in Broomfield, Colorado.
Larry was born and raised in Colorado and was very proud of the fact that he was a native Coloradan. After graduating high school in Arvada, CO, Larry spent 3 years in the United States Navy. In particular, he spent time on the USS Proteus stationed based in Guam. About 10 years later he joined the Colorado Army National Guard. The last 10 years of his life, he worked at Wiland in Niwot, Colorado where his coworkers became not only his friends but also his family.
Larry enjoyed being active and in his younger years ran local marathons, hiked, and biked. In the 80s, he volunteered with Alpine Rescue Team. Larry had a variety of interests. He was an amateur weather chaser, had a strong life-long interest in photography, loved to race his car on occasion at the local speedway. He would go to Bonneville Speedweek (every year that it wasn’t rained out) to watch the amazing cars, talk with the drivers, and take photos of the cars. Larry had a big interest in shooting and in fact had been rated as a sharpshooter in the Army National Guard. When the big eclipse occurred a few years ago, Larry drove up to Guernsey, Wyoming to be able to photograph the rare occurrence. This is only a small example of the things he enjoyed in life.
Larry is preceded in death by his parents, Richard and Delphine Ledwick, and his brother John Ledwick. Larry has been cremated and will be joined in burial with his parents at Arvada Cemetery in Arvada, CO.
