Ouray has lost a valuable community member.
Dan Fossey passed away suddenly on Monday June 16. Dan was not only a selfless friend to the Witherspoon family but to anyone in our community who accepted his friendship. Dan's ability as a leader was second to none.
He served many mayors, city administrators, county commissioners and superintendents in his life. Dan worked to the height of his ability to prove to his superiors he was "the man for the job," but most of all, he deeply respected the men and women who worked for and with him.
There was almost nothing he would not do for his workmates. We should all aspire to continue his legacy. "An open heart and strong work ethic."
Please keep Dan's family in your thoughts and prayers.
Ed and Christine Witherspoon
