In memory: Jay Fetig

It is with great sadness that the family of Jay Fetig announce his passing on Oct. 4 of natural causes at the age of 61.

Growing up in a military family, Jay lived in many places in the United States and Germany. He moved to Greeley with his family in 1973, later graduating from Greeley Central High School and Colorado State University. Jay was employed by Colorado State University for the last 20 years. He also worked part-time at Fossil Creek Nursery for many years.

Jay loved music, fishing, hunting and all that is nature. Jay was an easy going person who was fun to be around and had many friends. Jay was born in Lafayette, Indiana, on April 27, 1958, and lived in Fort Collins at the time of his passing.

Jay is survived by his two brothers and their wives Jim and Linda Fetig of Kensington, Maryland; Jack and Chris Fetig of Loveland; his sister and her husband Jill and Troy White of Greeley; and his many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Don and Beverly Fetig.

A celebration of Jay’s life will be held from 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, November 5, at Fossil Creek Nursery. Anyone is welcome to attend.
