Ryan N. Jobes Obituary
Ryan N. Jobes, 34, of Denver, passed away suddenly on March 29th, 2018. He was born Saturday, May 21st, 1983 in Greeley, Colorado to H. Brook and Robyn (Hall) Jobes.

He was a student athlete and graduate of Bayfield High School, where he excelled at track and cross country. He went on to earn a bachelor's degree from Metro State and a master's degree in Environmental Policy and Management from the University of Denver.

Ryan fought for his country in a time of war as an Army combat engineer, building and securing some of the first forward operating bases in Iraq from 2003-2004.

He was married February 16th, 2003 shortly before deploying overseas. He and his former wife Rebecca (Evers) Jobes have two beautiful children, Riley (6) and Rhett (4).

Ryan was unlike most of us, he did not harden his heart. His caring, fragile soul could not reconcile the extremes of life: hiking in the San Juans versus fighting in a foreign war, the beauty of his children's birth against the injustice of poverty, an honest soul versus the souls of the corrupt and hateful.

His soul may have been troubled, but it was loving and beautiful. That is how we choose to remember him and we hope you will too.

A memorial will be held to honor Ryan from 12-3pm Saturday, April 7th at the Bayfield Lions Hall. If you feel like sending flowers, we ask that you instead donate that money to a mental health or veterans .
