Obituary for Angelo Theos
On June 4, 2013 Angelo Thomas Theos left the quiet little town of Meeker, Colorado to be with God. Angelo was born in Craig, Colorado on January 14, 2006 to Molly (Turner), Thomas (Willy) Theos. They brought Angelo home to an excited big brother Sheridan.
From the very beginning Angelo was active and outgoing in all he did. The love and care he received from his family, particularly his parents, created the genuine boy that everyone loved.
Angelo enjoyed all of life’s adventures. Among his favorites were camping, dirt biking, boating, going to the sheep, shooting squirrels, jumping off cliffs, science experiments such as launching hand built rockets and blowing things up.
Having two teachers as parents Angelo was afforded the luxury of explanation satisfying his ever curious mind. He was determined to learn the Why’s, What’s and How’s of this world, leaving few questions unasked. Angelo’s creativity had no obstacles, his parents gave him the time and attention that was necessary to explore.
Angelo never spent a day without family in his life; he had the gift of showing affection like only Angelo could. For him there was never enough time spent watching Bonanza eating his yogurt with Yiaya, teasing back and forth with his Papou, building Lego’s with Gammie, shooting carp with a bow and arrow alongside Papa, or just playing hard with his cousins. He made every moment special.
Angelo never missed an opportunity for a practical joke. Whether it be the famous electric handshake or the fake poop that would get the dog in trouble every time. His keen ability to barter, frequently gave him the upper hand in toys and finances.
Although the gift of life was cut too short, Angelo lived with kindness, integrity and above all else honesty. His kind nature was apparent to his teacher when he received a caring award at school. The promise bond and love that he and his dad shared and the devoted love between him and his mom, can never be broken or forgotten. His amazing ability to give love freely and genuinely was witnessed by all who met him.
Angelo is survived by his parents Thomas (Willy) Theos, Molly (Turner) Theos, his grandparents Bill (Papa) & Ann (Gammie) Turner, Angelo (Papou) & Karin (Yiaya) Theos. Brother Sheridan Harvey. Several aunts and uncles, Kai Turner, Keenen Turner, Coley (Kellie) Turner, Hallie (Kurt) Blunt, Katrina (Shawn) Springer, Anthony (Dani) Theos, & numerous cousins, friends and families. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Angelo Theos Fund at The First National Bank of the Rockies.
Funeral services were held at 11:00 a.m. Monday, June 10, 2013, at The Meeker Methodist Church with
Very Rev. Makarios Mannos and Johnny Arrington officiating.
Interment followed in Highland Cemetery.
