Remembrance of Dave Gilbert - Poudre C1 Boater

Dave Gilbert, age 46, of Livermore, Colorado, passed away suddenly, Tuesday, May 6, 2008, while traveling in Ontario, Canada. Dave was an incredible C1 Boater that will be sorely missed on the Cache la Poudre.

A celebration of Dave’s life will take place at the Shambhala Mountain Center, 4921 County Road 68C, Red Feather Lakes, CO on Tuesday, May 13th @ 1:00 p.m. See http://www.shambhalamountain.org for directions. No flowers please. Donations can be made to the Dave Gilbert Memorial Fund and sent to Susan Howe, 251 Crestone Way, Livermore, CO 80536 or brought to the service.

Dave was born on February 24, 1962 in Minneapolis, MN to James and Gladys Gilbert. He received the Ph.D. in WaterShed Science from Colorado State University (CSU) where he worked as a research scientist. Dave and his friend and colleague, Tom Sale, built an internationally recognized environmental research program. The program has acquired seven patents and advanced numerous students at CSU.

Dave was married on June 21, 2002 to Susan Howe, his best friend and life companion. His greatest accomplishment arrived on October 2, 2004, the birth of his son, Jensen Howe Gilbert. Dave loved the outdoors: hiking, paddling, and skiing. He traveled extensively for work and pleasure, but his greatest love and his greatest journeys were experienced at home with his wife, son, their many canine companions, and friends. He is survived by his wife, Susan Howe, their son Jensen, brothers Phillip and Peter Gilbert and their families, and many friends. Dave is preceded in death by his parents. Cremation has taken place.

To know the river is to know Dave.

I will miss Dave, we spent a lot of time together running and white water canoeing, and time underwater trying to flip a C2.

If you have any photos of Dave on the river, please send me your scans. We are pulling a powerpoint together and would appreciate any photos you may have.

Thanks for the reply.
