Richard 'Dick' Annand departed this life on Dec. 26, 2015. He enjoyed working for the Colorado Department of Transportation for 32 years, and he enjoyed his life very much. He was the proud father of two, and a delighted grandfather. He requested that you join him for a celebration of his life at his memorial 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel in Pueblo. In keeping with his life and wishes, the service will be casual and simple, therefore, no food or beverages will be served. Online condolences, www.montgomerysteward.com
I worked extensively with Dick during the late 1990s and 2000s on conservation issues in El Paso County transportation projects. Dick was willing to go into unknown territory and we were able to obtain funding and support for some unusual projects. The extensive set-aside riparian habitats at the I-25 Monument and Baptist Road interchanges are due in part to Dick’s efforts – both projects took years of discussion before approval. I relocated to Washington State several years ago and just heard of Dick’s passing today, and want to extend my condolences to his family and friends. He was a real pleasure to work with.
Deepest sympathies to your family. I remember Dick as a kind and good person with a great sense of humor. We worked together at CDOT from 1987 to 2005 when I retired; lots of years. He will be missed.
Dick\’s smile was infectious. His Enthusiasm unbridled and his loyalty unquestioned. He always made my wife and I come away smiling and thinking the world was a better place because we considered Dick a good, true friend. We will miss him but the world is a better place because of the time he shared with all of us during his time on this earth.
Deepest sympathies to Dick’s family for their loss. I considered Dick a great friend through the years. I worked with Dick at CDOT from the time he started in 1977 until I retired in 2001. During this time I grew to greatly respect his professional abilities and will always remember his great sense of humor.
So sorry we lost our dear friend. We will miss Dick, with his smile and great sense of humor.
