George Gidley of Basalt died on Oct. 1. He was 69. As many he knew are still unaware of his death, his wife of 30 years, Janet Gidley, and family asked to print this in his memory.
Gidley was born in Elizabeth, N.J., on July 19, 1934. He lived in the valley for 15 years. He is survived by his wife, Janet; two sons, Glenn and Scott Digley; and a grandson, Chris Gidley.
An avid skier and writer of poetry and crazed ramblings, Gidley also loved to create beautiful landscapes using rocks, flowers and plants for friends and family.
He is very much missed by his family and friends. Rest in peace, beautiful beast.
