Robert Reardon

Longtime local resident Robert Reardon, 49, died Saturday at the home of friends Scott and Sherry Harris in Denver.

Reardon was an outdoor enthusiast who spent more than 30 years in the Colorado Rockies, including a significant amount of time in the Roaring Fork Valley. A friend, Ollie Bode of Holland Hills, said Reardon liked to travel, sail, ski and camp. He was also an animal lover.

“He will be greatly missed,” she said. “He was a kind-hearted person who touched many lives.”

Reardon was known as an outstanding mason and stone setter. He worked in pool construction.

A memorial service will be held Thursday at 3 p.m. at the Aspen Mortuary, 6370 Union Street in Arvada. The mortuary can be reached at 303-422-8882. His ashes will be taken after the memorial service to Connecticut.

Reardon is survived by his parents, who live in Southington, Conn., as well as four sisters and one brother.

Donations in Reardon’s memory can be made to Animal Rescue Foundation, in care of Bode’s Kennel, 329 Holland Hills Road, Basalt 81621. ARF makes sure that cats and dogs held at pounds are adopted or removed before they are killed.
