Dell Pace

Dell James Pace passed away under the watchful care of the staff at the V.A. hospital in Grand Junction. He is survived by his sister Janice Murray and brothers Ed, Bus, Jack, Terry, and Burnard; and a whole valley of good friends, neighbors and relatives.

All are welcome to join in the “celebration of his life” Sunday, September 13th at the Red Barn located on Prince Creek Road south of Carbondale. All guests are asked to park at the Carbondale High School. Shuttle buses will be provided from that point. Reception begins at 1:00pm with a pot luck luncheon at 3:00pm. A pig and turkey roast has been donated, so no additional meat is needed. Dell has requested no flowers or donations.

Dell was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa to Viola and George Pace in 1843. He went to grade school in Glenwood Springs, and graduated from high school in Gurley, Nebraska in 1963.

Dell proudly served in the United States Army as a paratrooper for the 73rd, 82nd and 101st Airborne from 1964-1968. He returned to the Roaring Fork Valley and the mountains that he’d always loved. It’s here that he continued to build these life-long and very dear friendships. All will truly miss him.
