Gedo Frigetto

November 22, 1929 — November 24, 2023

Gedo Frigetto passed away peacefully at home on the morning of November 24,2023. Gedo was born on November 22,1929 to Louie and Maria (Beltrame) Frigetto in Sterling, Colorado. Gedo moved to Montrose at the age of 6 with his family after his father Louie was recruited from the Holly Sugar Company to grow sugar beets.

On July 9, 1955 he married Beulah Shepherd. They were married for 68 years. Together they had two children, Kathy and Gary. Gedo continued his love for farming along with his son Gary and later on his grandsons Justin and Jordan. Gedo, along with his brother Bill, received many farming awards. These included top sugar beet growers and made it to the 1000-pound sugar club in Colorado in 1972. In 1985 the brothers were honored the Conservation Farmer of the Year Award. In 1986 they won outstanding farmer of the year award.

Gedo enjoyed growing all kinds of crops and took a lot of pride in all his hard work. The only hobbies Gedo enjoyed were farming, farming, farming and all the way up to his last days chopping weeds and anything with the color green in his yard!

Gedo was a member of St Mary’s Catholic church. He and Beulah could almost always be found on a Saturday night attending church.
