In Memoriam

Larry Edward Marte

Larry Edward Marte of Parshall Colorado
passed away on May 25, 2018, in Kremmling. He was raised on the family Ranch south of Granby which produced cattle, milk, and cream and had a lucrative timber business. They would load multiple cans of cream on a horse-driven sleigh for delivery to the Rohradner ranch. To keep the coffee warm they wrapped the cans with newspaper and used rocks warmed from the oven to keep their feet warm. Larry and his wife Jann moved to the Dahley Ranch on Highway 40, Parshall Coin 1974. His love of animals was shared with his kids working and raising milk cows, chickens, geese and ducks, turkeys, rabbits, horses, and steers. The kids were heavily involved in 4-H which Larry and Jann supported and enjoyed!
