Bob Mehle

Bob Mehle of Leadville passed away peacefully on Nov. 4.

Mehle was born and raised in Leadville, and he loved living in the mountains and enjoying the outdoors. Some of his fondest memories were growing up with a tight group of friends in a small town, the years he spent as chief of the fire department, and his burro racing days.

Mehle enjoyed putting his snowblower and mower to work in his neighborhood, which he loved being a part of. His favorite thing in the world was spending time with his grandson.

Mehle had a long and fun life with a big family. He is survived by his wife Julie; his daughter Tiffany and son-in-law Tucker; his grandson Trevor; his sisters Alberta, Sharon and June (Doug); and his many nieces and nephews.

“We will all miss you and your kindness,” his family said.
