Cleyo Ferrin, 91, passed away peacefully at his daughter’s home in Chandler, Arizona on March 10, 2019. Cleyo was born December 20,1927 to loving parents, Leonard Ferrin and Mabel(Jones)Ferrin in Jackson Wyoming. He was 3rd of 4 children; Curtis, Phyllis, and James all preceding him in passing. Cleyo graduated from Garfield County High School in Glenwood Springs, Colorado in 1947 despite missing a year due to a serious illness. It was there he met and later married Gwynetha Williams. They had 3 children; Diana, Linda, and Larry before her passing of cancer in 1956. With the help of his devoted and loving parents, he provided his children with unforgettable memories growing up at the confluence of the Colorado and Roaring Fork River on Overlin Dr in Glenwood Springs.

Cleyo later met and married Rosie Bonilla in 1971 and together they put their love and efforts into building a home “The Ranch” outside of New Castle, Co. A few years later they purchased the old school house on Main St in New Castle, Co. Cleyo was a master carpenter and craftsman. He loved his trade and it was clearly evident in his workmanship. At the time of his passing he was survived by his wife Rosie of 48 years. She died 11 weeks later on June 3rd 2019. He is survived by his children; Diana DiGuglielmo (Larry) of Chandler, AZ, Linda Watters of Chandler, AZ, Larry Ferrin (Willo) of Grand Junction, CO, 4 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Time may pass and fade away but memories of you will always stay.
