Visitation is planned for 3 p.m. today at Grant Mortuary. Wake services include a rosary at 7 p.m.

Funeral services are planned for Thursday at St. Michael Catholic Church, 678 School St. Following a Catholic mass, the procession will travel to Craig Cemetery, after which people will be invited back to St. Michael for supper.

Friends of the family set up a memorial fund to help pay funeral costs at the First National Bank of the Rockies, 600 Yampa Ave.
