9in memoriam Joe Dice Joe Dice (1929-2018) Age 88, died on March 30, 2018 at home following a long illness. Joe will be remembered as a rancher, farmer, family historian and storyteller who loved good horses and his cows. Through the years he was involved in Custom Farming, Cattle Buying, Ranch Management, Sale Barn Management, Dice Trucking, and his little cow herd. He was a member of Colorado Farm Bureau, serving as a State Director, and the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association and well as the local Holy Cross Cattlemen’s Association. As we remember his relationship with the Garfield County Fair and Rodeo, Joe was strongly involved with the 4-H and FFA livestock programs. He was especially supportive and involved in the Jr. Livestock Sale. He assisted with sales, buy backs, and provided free transportation of marked animals to their final destination. His commitment to the success of the youth in these programs was important to him and his family. Joe’s family and friends thank you for honoring his commitment to the youth of Garfield County and their success in 4-H and FFA programs. Take time to participate and support the youth in the livestock programs. Lex Bumgardner Lex Bumgardner was born and raised in western Garfield County and lived there till his final days. Lex ranched for the last 25 plus years on Parachute Creek, on the family homestead for the majority of that time. Lex Bumgardner’s family homesteaded on Parachute Creek in the late 1890’s, their homestead has been there ever since. Lex rode in the Garfield County Rodeo in his younger years, and brought his kids to ride in the Jr. Rodeo in the late 70’s and early 80’s keeping the tradition alive for his hometown. In his later years Lex provided calves to his grandchildren to show at the Garfield County Fair & Rodeo. Lex enjoyed a life deeply rooted in the rich western heritage of Garfield County. Good Luck to all Participants!
