Obituary

Lawrence Gale Alley was born on November 27,1961 in Fruita Co.  to Lawrence Gale Alley ,Sr (deceased) and Helen (Mazza) Belger

From the time Larry was born he was on the go and never slowed down he was into every thing.  When he was 10 he had climbed up into a tree and grabbed a rusty wire ,the main power line to his school (12,000 volts)   Even though he was badly injured and required skin grafting over parts of his body he was up and running in no time. At the age of 12 he decided he wanted to be a bee keeper and traveled around Northern California with our friend Brother Buzz a bee keeper. A few years later he became a gold miner and tried to make himself rich   When Larry was 17 he went to work at a steel factory working whipping rebarb and cutting it. That same year Larry was in a motorcycle accident which changed his life forever. After over a month in a coma he had to relearn almost everything he had known. After moving back to Colorado he did handyman work. In July of 2020 Larry found out he had cancer. He fought clear to the end

He loved to fish, ride his bike and most of all he loved his dog Buddy.

He is survived by his mother Helen,Sister Jolene (Jeff) Marlow, nephew Nick (Ashlee) Marlow, niece Chelsea (Sean) Wilson. Great nephew Silas Wilson and grand nieces Averlee and Kinslee Marlow  and his uncle and aunt and many extended family members
