After his retirement from banking he got back to his love of horses and he began ranching. He loved his horses, cows and cats. Even though he complained, he loved every bit of the hard work it took building his ranch from the ground up. He was a member of AQHA and an associate member of the PRCA. He and Anne enjoyed auctions (him more than her), western craft shows, diving in Mexico, yearly trips to Las Vegas, Nev., for National Finals Rodeo, the Colorado Rockies, and watching his grandchildren in all their activities.

We will always remember him for the special times, his love of ranching, his joy for helping others, and his never ending love for his wife and family.

He is survived by his wife, Anne; son, Craig Tedesco (Melissa) of Eaton, Colo.; daughters, Leslie Jaramillo (Louie) and Tara Tedesco, both of Greeley, Colo;, nine grandchildren; a niece and nephew, and many other family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a younger sister at birth.

Memorial services were held July 15, 2011 at Bohlender Funeral Chapel in Ft. Collins, Colo.
