Letter: Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation remembers Craig Sakin
It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Craig Sakin. Craig was a respected member of the Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation board of directors. While his tenure in that role officially spanned only a few months, Craig was quickly becoming a trusted adviser, strategist and friend. His wisdom was well beyond his years, and he had a true passion for ensuring that Aspen Valley Hospital continued to provide quality health care services in our community.
Craig served not only on the AVH Foundation board but also as a member of the Capital Campaign Executive Committee. In this capacity he also provided great insight and strategic thinking on how best to move forward, always believing in our ultimate goals and never thinking those goals could not be obtained. He became a true mentor to the staff and a respected voice on the board.
While we remain sorrowful for this great loss, we also acknowledge that we are a better and stronger organization for having known Craig, and we will benefit greatly from his advice and mentoring. He was a great man, and this loss is significant for many. On behalf of the Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation board of directors and the entire AVH family, we offer our sincerest condolences to his wife, Sally, and his two beautiful girls, Lauren and Arden. Our thoughts and prayers remain with you. Craig’s involvement had a significant impact on the organization. His guidance and recommendations are being implemented already, and in his memory, we will continue the forward momentum that he helped launch knowing that this was so meaningful to him.

On Saturday, the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Aspen fire, police EMS and the veterans made us all proud to be members of this community. The 9/11 Day of Remembrance Ceremony at the Aspen firehouse was a reverent tribute for those who lost their lives while protecting and serving us.
