We are saddened to inform you that Timothy Devlin, father of Casey '13, Jackson '15 and Nora '17, passed away on September 8.
"Tim spent his youth in Plattsburgh, New York, a place of cherished childhood memories, and he spent his high school years in Edison, New Jersey, where he made lifelong friends. After earning an undergraduate degree from the University of Cincinnati, Tim and his wife, Jennifer Meyerrose, moved to Colorado, where he earned a law degree from the University of Denver in 1996. As an attorney, Tim specialized in land use and development law. Tim absolutely loved the Colorado outdoors, especially skiing and boating, and he passed this passion on to his children. As each of his children learned to walk, they also learned to ski! Each Christmas, Casey, Jackson and Nora would discover new skis under the tree, or a new bike for summertime family rides. Tim tackled and embraced the beauty and challenges of Colorado’s landscapes, and taught his kids to do the same. To this day, when the three Devlin kids (now young adults!) hit the slopes, they recall fond memories with Dad.” Click here to view the obituary.
A private celebration and memorial of Tim’s life is planned for September 28, 2020, at Horan & McConaty. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to Southeast Denver Baseball League.
We are saddened to inform you that Chris Vuletich '55 passed away on July 25.
"Chris J. Vuletich, 82, prominent Denver Realtor, passed away from Alzheimer’s on July 25, 2020. He was born on December 19, 1937, in Denver, Colorado. He was the son of immigrant parents – his father from Croatia and his mother from what is now Northern Italy. They instilled a strong work ethic in Chris, as well as his unwavering Catholic faith. In his childhood years, he delivered newspapers for the Denver Post. He would continue to hold a job while going to school from those earliest days through his college graduation. Chris was also an altar boy at Blessed Sacrament Church in Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood, where he grew up, made friendships he maintained until his death, and raised his own family after marrying Carol Jean in 1959. In the few years before his diagnosis with Alzheimer’s, Chris volunteered at the devotional chapel at Risen Christ Catholic Parish from 2-3 a.m., every Tuesday, in Denver. Chris graduated from Regis High School in 1955 and then earned his BS in Business Administration from the University of Denver in 1962. He jumped into real estate, giving himself a deadline of 30 days to make his first sale, or else he would change careers. He made that sale and worked as a Realtor in Denver the next 52 years. He loved his work – especially helping first-time homebuyers finally achieve their “American dream,” and then continuing to help them in later years as their housing needs and desires changed. He could drive through any neighborhood in Denver and point out numerous houses he had sold, helped people purchase, or both – and often multiple times. Chris loved people and was known for his kind-hearted and forgiving nature. He will be missed by his family and many friends for his smile, humor, wisdom, generosity, love of life, and gentle, loving spirit.” Click here to view the obituary.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, alz.org/co in his name.

After graduating from Regis High School in 1997, he began his career in the hospitality industry. There are people that spend their lives lifting others up—sometimes metaphorically, sometimes literally. Dan spent his 40 years on Earth doing both with warm words, a willing ear, and massive hugs. He had an innate ability to make his smile infectious and was known for being endlessly kind, genuine, compassionate, hilarious, and occasionally, sweaty. Dan was courageous in ways spanning from single-handedly stopping a robbery, to running onstage in the middle of a concert to entertain an enormous crowd, to simply being truly himself no matter where he was or who he was with, and he managed to make people feel admired and appreciated for who they were. The world was simply a better place with him around." Click here to view the obituary.
