Since Colorado’s first confirmed coronavirus death on March 5, the disease’s outbreak has torn across the state, taking lives and diminishing communities in ways that statistics alone could never capture. 

The Colorado Sun has been collecting stories from obituaries, loved ones and other news outlets to memorialize the Coloradans lost to the pandemic.

They were public servants, ski enthusiasts, pizza-makers, jokesters and most of all, integral parts of our community.

The Sun will continue to update this list of brief profiles as more names and details become available.
