  1. Our thoughts & prayers are with you.
    Amy, we have known you since you were little & your wonderful family.
    Colby, I thought so much of you when you were with the Yuma Hospital; you were always
    the one I called when I needed anything-you reminded me of your dad when anyone needed
    something and teaching your kids the love of fishing and hunting that he taught you.
    We knew Mike through working with him at the Huck Finn Days with the VFW & respected his
    knowledge & passion to share with kids about the outdoors. Shari & John Barker

  2. Amy,
    You know how I feel.
    Mike will never ever be forgotten, and no one will ever fill those shoes. I am so grateful for Mike choosing you my sister and you choosing him to make a life with. Your love story was one for the movies. Calvin and I love you and the kids and grandbabies immensely, we will be right by your side as you navigate this path.
    Love you sis!

  3. Mike was a fisheries technician for us and was a joy to have around. Worked hard and enjoyed working with the aquatic resource. He will be greatly missed.

  4. Words just escape me at this time. I thought the world of Mike and always enjoyed being around him in any situation. Just leaves a void which will be so hard to fill. Thoughts and prayers to Amy and the kids.

  5. I first met Mike when he was a Wildlife Officer in Yuma. He was extremely fair, honest, and possessed the common sense that made him a respected member of our small community. He continued with that same integrity as he moved up the ranks in the Division. My condolences to his family, and all his other friends. Hunting season this Fall and Winter won’t be the same without Mike. Thank you for sharing him with us.

  7. Chris and I were so shocked and saddened by Mike’s passing. Our condolences go out to Mikes family. I was the fish biologist in Sterling in until my retirement in 2004. I hired Mike his first season with the Division. He worked 2 summers for me and did a great job. I still have an original pencil drawing by Mike hanging on my office wall that I cherish. I met and loved his family in SW Ks one year for a pheasant hunt. He was a great guy.

  8. I was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Mike’s passing. He was always such a positive and enthusiastic person. I met him early on in his DOW career and we became good friends over time… Recall a dinner at his first home in Yuma with his lovely wife Amy and their first-born entertaining us all from his highchair. Was rewarding to see Mike continue to do great things for the Wildlife and be so attached to it all. That he was so successful and advanced in his professional career was no surprise given his passion for it. We spent many hours talking wildlife management in those early years, hunted a few pheasants and enjoyed planning and pursuing the big bucks we were both so enamored with. You have left us far too soon my friend.

    My sincere condolences to Mike’s loving family.

  9. Words cannot express the deep feelings of sympathy and grief that all who knew Michael are experiencing right now. To me he was a shining light in his joy of living and his positive outlook. My times spent fishing with him were peaceful and totally enjoyable. My prayers go out to Amy and the family for God’s peace and love.

  10. My sincere condolences to the Family and Loved Ones on this heartbreaking loss. Mike Trujillo will be missed by many including his co-workers and all who knew him. I am the Volunteer Camp Host at Lake DeWeese SWA and had the opportunity to know Mr. Trujillo. May he Rest in Peace now and always be Remembered for all his time he Dedicated to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the state of Colorado’s Wildlife.
    Sincerely,
