Davo came to the San Luis Valley in 1983 to reside with Blue Peaks Developmental Services, Inc., and has lived in homes in the Alamosa and Monte Vista area ever since.
Davo’s strong sense of self and friendly personality allowed him to make many friends, both within the Blue Peaks community and in the San Luis Valley. He demonstrated his joy for living when singing, painting, looking at books and magazines and hanging out with friends. He often enjoyed a good burger, cake and Starbucks. His smile was infectious and his hugs a source of happiness.
Davo will be missed by consumers and staff of Blue Peaks, as well as others in the San Luis Valley who have been a part of his life. A Service of Remembrance will be held at Rogers Family Mortuary, 205 State Avenue, Alamosa, CO on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 10:00 A.M.
