Gregory Bo Archibeque died June 15, 2008, in Gypsum.

He was born March 9, 1988, in Grand Junction. Bo grew up in Gypsum and graduated from Eagle Valley High School in 2006. He was a member of the wrestling, baseball and lacrosse teams.

In his youth, he developed a love of the outdoors. He climbed many of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks during many camping and fishing trips with his father.

As an outdoorsman, he excelled as an archery hunter. He harvested his first deer at 15 years of age, and over the years he bagged numerous other big game species.

Other interests included video games, sharing music with his brother D.J., and hanging out with his friends and very close cousins Gabrielle and Sami Jo.

Bo was a life member of the Mule Deer Foundation and the Colorado Bow Association.

Bo was a gentle soul and a loyal friend who will be greatly missed. He will always be remembered for his contagious laugh and quirky faces.

He is survived by his mother Angela (Ben) Medina; father Tom (Angel) Archibeque; siblings D.J. Medina, John “Bud” Sisson and Xanadu Sisson; grandparents Lillian Torrez, Silviano Torrez, Ignacio and Oralia Archibeque; stepgrandparents Frank and Connie Medina; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by uncles Billy and Randy Torrez; and a cousin, Miles May.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Bald Eagle Wrestling Club, P.O. Box 1083, Gypsum, CO 81637.

A celebration of life will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, June 20, at the Gypsum Creek Middle School.
