Hans Christopher Ayers passed away on Dec. 18, 2012 in Carbondale, Colo.

Hans was born on Sept. 2, 1964 in Kansas City, Mo. His family soon moved to the Roaring Fork Valley, where he remained throughout adulthood, settling in Carbondale, nestled in the arms of his beloved Mt. Sopris. Hans attended Basalt High School and CMC. He enjoyed skiing, camping, and hiking with his dogs.

Hans is survived by his mother, Ursula Shepherd; brother David Ayers; sister Jessie Light; sister-in-law Christine Ayers; brother-in-law Sam Light, nieces and nephews Charlie, Gus, Abby, Daisy, Ellie and Wally; and the love of his life Ana Paniagua.
