Gregg Braden, 35, of Rifle, passed away Nov. 26, 2008.

Gregg was born May 28, 1973, in Chippewa Falls, Wis., to Beverly Jean and Allen Eugene Braden. He attended elementary school in Cornell, Wis., and high school in Rifle.

Gregg loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing and snowmobiling, but most of all, his true passion was spending time with his family and friends.

For the past several years, Gregg owned and operated his own framing company in Grand Junction, until closing it and going to work in the energy industry.

Gregg was known to everyone as a loving husband, father, son and brother; a hard worker, a man with a big heart and always the first to step in and lend a helping hand to anyone and everyone.

Survivors include his wife, Michele; sons Kirby, Cody and Matthew; stepsons Jacob and Zachary; his mother and her husband Ed Gray of Grand Junction; his father and his wife Julie Braden of Holcombe, Wis.; stepfather Norm (Melanie) Braden of Grand Junction; sister Brenda (Ike) Apolinar; brothers Brent and Eric; nephews Brandon, Tylor, Justin, Rico and Miklo; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Gregg was preceded in death by his grandparents Harold and Ruth Pastorius, Eugene Braden, Marie Harrington and Raymond Braden; and brother Kirby Braden.

A celebration of life is planned 2 p.m. today, Monday, Dec. 1, at Rifle Funeral Home.

Cremation has taken place.
