Michael James Meskel

November 6, 1956 — December 18, 2021

Michael James Meskel, a native Coloradoan, was born on November 6, 1956 passed away December 18, 2021. Michael went to sleep on earth and woke up in heaven, surrounded by his family. He was my husband of 45 years, a dad to Timothy Michael Patrick Meskel and Amanda Lee Grace Meskel, best friend and father-in-law to Derek Spaulding, and father-in-law to Megan Meskel. Michael was grandad to Gracie and Eli Spaulding and River Lee James Meskel.
His saying was I can do anything with nothing forever, and he could. Michael worked hard all of his life. He built part of the Glenwood Canyon, doing work on the bridges and he always pointed out which part he worked on. He taught himself Auto-Cad and taught at CMC in Glenwood Springs for 14 years, and that's where his career took him until 3 years ago.
Michael lived to spend time with his children and his grandchildren. He loved going fishing and camping in the "Magic Bus" , our 1977 Mitchell camper on the Grand Mesa. He loved fishing at Kaiser and Eggleston. He always said " FISH ON "!! He loved the Grateful Dead so now he is rocking out with Jerry.
Wear your tie dye and celebrate Michael's life with me at his Celebration of Life service to be held at a date to be determined in June 2022. Bring a covered dish and your favorite story. Let's celebrate, laugh and cry together. Forever-n-ever no matter what.
