Patrick "Pat" Sandoval

Departed on December 8, 2018

Resided in Lakewood, CO

Patrick “Pat” Sandoval, 72, of Lakewood, Colorado, entered his eternal resting place, December 8, 2018, after a week-long fight to survive a heart attack and subsequent stroke.

Pat earned his bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of New Mexico (Go Lobos!) and spent his first year teaching in the urban schools of Compton, California in 1968-1969.  He then moved to Tucson, Arizona where he was a middle school educator for 30 years.  While teaching full time, he earned his master’s degree in Education from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!).  He taught industrial arts, fine arts, and math.  He moved to the Denver area in 1998, and began a second career as an administrative assistant, and ultimately retired from Denver Health.

He was an accomplished cook and baker as well as an amazing artist.  All who knew him well were recipients of handmade gifts and art pieces that he crafted himself.  His “Pat’s World Famous Almond Toffee” was one of his handmade creations that many of his friends and family members anticipated each holiday season.  He shared his passion for creativity and aesthetic beauty with everyone he knew.  He was a car enthusiast and voracious reader of car magazines, as well as books of all genres.  A holder of a vast array of trivia knowledge, he was unmatched at the game, Trivial Pursuit, and could answer the questions on Jeopardy faster than any of the contestants.  Another passion of his was travel.  He and Jeremy visited a number of awesome places in many countries over the years, and had a tradition of spending a week in Mexico on the beach to celebrate their anniversary annually in December.

He is survived by his life partner of 17 years, Jeremy Everett, and his little dog, Angel.  His siblings include: Sisters, Gloria (Greg), Shirley (Jake), and Denise (Chris).  Jeremy’s family includes: Parents, Robert “Bob” & Ruth Everett, and brother, Andy Everett (Mandi).  He also had numerous nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.

People looked forward to gatherings that included Pat because he was fun to be around, and he shared his wonderful sense of humor and love of laughter with everyone around him.  His infectious laugh, generous and kind spirit, and joyous presence will be missed.

Private family services will be held to celebrate Pat’s amazing life.

Brian Lee Webster

Departed on November 23, 2018

Resided in Aurora, CO

Brian Lee Webster, passed away on 11/23/18 in Denver, Colorado due to complications of end stage liver failure. He was 67 years old. He lived at an assisted living facility until October, when he was hospitalized for several weeks. He was then transferred to a long term care facility where hospice began.

He was born in Crosbyton, TX to Johnnye and Billy Webster on January 31st, 1951.  He is survived by his sister, Elaine Robinson of Lubbock, TX; his daughter, Rebecca Webster; his son, Jonny Webster; 4 grandchildren, Aidan, Devaul, Cian and Liam McIntyre, and Jennavieve Gloekler, all of Denver, CO.

He loved sports and played high school football until he was injured and unable to play. He maintained a love for football his whole life. He loved baseball too, Red Lobster and the mountains. Which is what brought him to Colorado in 1991. He worked various jobs over his lifetime; farming cotton, painting houses, and doing security work at DIA (Denver International Airport). He had a great sense of humor and could see the humor in anything and everything. He was an extremely strong willed and determined man. This served him well when he was diagnosed with cancer in 2002. He was extremely lucky to survive this rare cancer with only surgery.

My father's wishes were to be cremated and to have his ashes spread with his two son's (Enoch & Eddy) ashes in Denver. We will have a small memorial/wake to honor his life before we spread his ashes. More details will be shared when available.

He will be greatly missed by all those friends and family that loved him.
