Aaron Christopher Beltz, of Colo.


Aaron Christopher Beltz died suddenly at home on July 16, 2021.

He was born to Judith and Harold Beltz in Huron. Aaron graduated with Honors from Huron High School in 1978. He then earned an Associate Degree in Applied Mechanics with high honors from Mitchell Technical Institute, Mitchell, South Dakota.

Aaron lived and worked in South Dakota, Wyoming and Colorado, settling in Broomfield, Colo., for work in Boulder, Colo. Aaron committed his energy and sharp intellect to his work, becoming a Master Automotive Technician. He was able to perform repairs on any year, make and model from Ford Model A to current year vehicles. He would fabricate unavailable parts, weld components deemed beyond repair, and diagnose problems that stymied the dealership, all to do the best he could for people and our Earth.

Aaron was brilliant, fun, a great dancer, an artist and sculptor. He was kind, generous, hard working and forgiving. He was a devoted loving husband to Holly, and father to his three children and Holly's two children.

Aaron was passionate about preserving Earth for the human race. We were so lucky to have Aaron in our lives.

Aaron is survived by his wife, Holly Bender; and her two sons, Lance and Donovan; his three children: Tim, Ashley and Ty Beltz; his mother, Judith Beltz; and sister, Vicki Pawlowski.

Aaron's Memorial will be held Saturday August 14, 2021 at 2 p.m. at Sunshine Fire Protection District Fire Station, 5880 Sunshine Canyon Drive, Boulder, CO 80302. All are welcome. Mask required.
