, age 69, of Masonville, Colo., made his final ride across the great divide to be with his Creator on March 3, 2007. He passed away following a bout with cancer, in his house, in his bedroom, in his own bed, just like he had always wanted.

He was born to Peter and Blanche (Smith) Dion on Feb. 13, 1938. He lived his entire life above Masonville, Colo., in the Buckhorn Canyon. After losing his father and his brother, at the age of 12 he operated the Bar D Ranch, took care of his mother, who was an invalid, and attended school, graduating from Loveland High School in 1957.

Eddie did custom work and fencing for descriptive purposes. Eddie also rode bulls and bareback stock. One of the most rewarding things to Eddie was when he fought bulls for kids’ rodeos, protecting the youth and the cowboys.

He worked for the Loveland Great Western Sugar Factory for many years to supplement his ranch income. He did horseshoeing and trimming on ranch horses. He broke many horses, and there is nowhere in the Buckhorn Canyon Eddie hadn’t ridden on horseback. He helped out the Brand Board for many years. He worked for the Larimer County Sheriff’s Department some, and worked on body recovery for three days following the Big Thompson Flood of 1976. He also did lots of blasting work.

Eddie was a very loving person. He would do anything for anyone who needed help, especially kids.

He loved to dance, and was a great teacher. Eddie was a most honest and honorable man. He had great respect for his Creator, and all the gifts God provides to us. He always gave credit where credit was due. He knew who was in control.

Eddie always had special horses and dogs, and will be placed alongside his working companions.

He was preceded in death by his father, brother and mother.

Eddie was deeply loved by many people who knew him. He will be forever missed.

A memorial service is planned for Eddie on April 21 at the Buckhorn Presbyterian Church in Masonville. The service will take place at 2 p.m.
