Mitch Patrick Anderson, 19, passed away Monday, May 8, 2017.

He was born April 15, 1998 in Nashua, NH the son of Mike and Laura (Kalkowski) Anderson. He was raised in Larkspur, CO and attended Larkspur Elementary, going on to Castle View High School and then graduated in 2016 from Palmer Ridge High School.

Mitch's first job was at Horse Thief Campground. He went on to work at the Larkspur Pizzaria, KFC, Tony's Market, Jimmy John's, Parry's Pizza and lots of yard work around Larkspur. Usually, he was working two jobs at the same time, always a hard worker.

Mitch was a natural at anything he tried. He was a talented self-taught musician that could strum any guitar, beat on any drum set. His fearless and adventurous spirit brought him to the outdoors, whether on his bike at the skatepark or in his Jeep that he loved to tinker with, preparing for annual family trips to Moab. Mitch was always surrounded by the countless people he touched throughout his life with his selfless personality. He was a catalyst for a good time, always quick with a smile or joke to brighten any room.

Survivors include his parents, Mike and Laura, Larkspur, brother Michael, Denver, sister Sarah, Larkspur; uncles and aunts Andrew and Anne Anderson, Colchester, VT; Debi and James Abolt, Brookfield, WI; Patricia and Jon Mendes, Carlsbad, NM; cousins Ellen and Joseph Abolt; grandparents Peggy Reid, Douglas, WY; Garnet and Maria Anderson, Tucson, AZ; Jan and Dick Quinn, Venice, FL, Ruth Kalkowski, Moorhead, MN. He was preceded in death by his grandfather Larry Kalkowski, and grandfather Glen F. Reid of Ft. Collins, CO
