On Sunday, October 6, 2019, Winston “Pete” R. Gould of Collbran, CO, devoted husband, proud father and grandfather, passed away at the age of 80. Pete was born on December 15, 1938 to Rule and Martha Gould in Denver, CO. Pete would go on to serve in the USAF and Colorado State Patrol before starting his own successful business, Colorado Antler Art, with his wife and best friend of 45 years, Vicki Gould.
Pete loved fishing, hunting, carpentry, re-building cars, and most of all, humor that he shared with family, friends and those across the gas pump alike. It wasn’t unusual for a waitress, store clerk or nurse to know him by name and vice versa. He created a legacy of nicknames and “Pete-isms” such as “bean squeezin’s” (coffee), that have become our distinct family vocabulary to share with others.
He is preceded in death by his parents Rule and Martha, and brother Robert. He is survived by his wife Vicki Gould, daughters Debbie and Laura, granddaughters Kaylin and Jordan, and brothers Ken and Tom.
