Obituary

Terry L. Eltzroth age 73, passed away June 25th in Aurora, CO. A military service will be held Wednesday, July 5th, 1:00pm at Fort Logan National Cemetery 3698 Sheridan Blvd, Denver. Please arrive no later than 12:45pm to meet the family at staging area "A" prior to the service.

Following the service we invite friends and family to join us for a reception in Terry's honor at the Morrison Inn located at 301 Bear Creek Ave, Morrison, CO 80465.

Terry was born in Wabash IN on May 29, 1944 and grew up as an only child. After high school he enlisted in the Air Force during the Vietnam War where he served his country stateside. During his time in the Air Force he was stationed at Lowry Air Force Base where he fell in love with Colorado.

Following his honorable discharge from the military, he and his wife relocated to Colorado where Terry would spend the remainder of his life. Terry retired from Coors Brewing Company in 2004 after 29 years of working graveyard and many times greater than 5 days a week to support and ensure the security of wife and only child.

Terry is survived by his daughter Tonya Browitt, son-in-law Chuck Browitt, granddaughters Ashlyn (12) and Alyssa (9) and his beloved Shih Tzu Mae Mae.

Terry was passionately devoted to his family. His retirement from Coors was prompted by the birth of his first granddaughter which included moving from Morrison to Aurora to be closer. From the time the girls were born Terry would come to the house daily and babysit ensuring his granddaughters were only cared for by family. As the girls grew Grandpa attended each and every school program, sporting event, holiday, and all special moments in the girls lives.

Terry will be deeply missed as a Dad, Grandpa, and someone who could always make you laugh.
