Darrell (Dee) Glen Hatch, born July 26, 1930, at Brush Creek, near Aspen, Colo., died peacefully on July 21, 2013, in Evanston.

His father died January 1937, leaving a widow and two daughters, Lois Helen and Jean Isabelle, and one son, Darrell Glen. The family continued to live at Brush Creek, where Dee attended elementary school. The family then moved to Glenwood Springs. Dee graduated from Glenwood Springs High School in May 1948. Dee attended college for one year in Fort Collins, then went back to Glenwood to work for area farmers on Divide Creek, near Silt.

On Oct. 21, 1951, he married Anita Alice Cerise; they were later sealed in 1961 in the Manti Temple. On Jan. 3, 1952, Dee joined the service, taking his basic training in Indian Town Gap Base in Pennsylvania. From May 1952 through July 1953, he served in Korea. Dee earned the rank of specialist first class. After the Service, Dee continued to work for area farmers on Divide Creek.

In October 1956, Dee’s family purchased a small farm near Silt, Colo. Then, in 1961, they sold the farm and moved to Glenwood Springs.

From 1961 through 1992, Dee lived in the Glenwood Springs area. After 45 years of marriage, Dee and Anita were divorced. Dee then moved to Marble, Colo., to live in the family cabin. In June 1996, Dee married Jessie Boan. They lived in Rifle, Colo., until moving to Grand Junction in 2002. In 2009, Dee moved to Evanston, where he lived until his passing in 2013.
