|Gil Farin's Passing||February 16th, 2017|
Gil Farin was widely known among Adams County GOP circles, and he will be missed. Following is an email from his family:
Sorry for sending an impersonal blind email, but you were in the email address book of my father, Gil Farin, so I am assuming you were his friend or associate.
Sadly, Gil passed away last weekend.
He had been in good health so the suddenness took us by surprise. The week before he contacted the flu or a cold and the coroner said that combined with his age and his type II diabetes was too much for him to fight off.
I spent 1 1/2 hours visiting with him Thursday and he was sick, but nothing serious. He visited the doc that same day and was prescribed rest and fluids and given a prescription for a cough medicine. My sister Betsy tried to reach him by phone Sat and Sun. By noon we were worried so I went to his home and found him on the floor. His neighbors had seen him at the mailbox Sat at noon, so he went fast.
Of course, we're devastated by the loss but we'll remember his life well lived. We were fortunate that our family was so close these last 19 years in Denver. We all lived within 2 miles of each other and did lots of things together. Gil and I had gone flying just the week before and we all went out for dinner last week.
We'll have a memorial service for him Friday February 24th at 10:30 a.m. at St Marks Catholic Church, 3141 W. 96th Ave, Westminster, reception to follow in the church hall
In lieu of flowers, his family encourages you to take a loved one out to lunch. Listen to them, look them in the eye and tell them you love them. Raise a glass and share a memory of Gil. His kindness, his friendship and his optimism. He led a life well lived.
Feel free to share information about his memorial service with any of your friends or associates who may want to attend. They may not have received this email.
I am writing from my father's computer, but I may not be checking it too often, so please don't reply to this email. If you have any questions, please send them to my personal email bertfarin@gmail or call me at home 303/410-1334
Thanks to all of you for having been a friend of my father. He was a great guy and a true gentleman. We'll miss him terribly.
Bert Farin, son (wife Kim) and Betsy Farin, daughter
