January 25, 1927 — January 31, 2023

Hector (Tito) Lara, (96), of Olathe, CO passed away on January 31, 2023.

Hector, fondly known as Tito, was born to Augustine Lara and Julia Hernandez on January 25, 1927 in Los Angeles, CA. Hector served in the US Army 187th Paraglider division during WWII while stationed in Japan.

His other occupations include butcher, miner, and a road construction foreman. His favorite things were fishing, yard sale-ing, antique shopping, and watching his favorite teams the Rockies, Broncos, and his hometown team the Rams. Hector was always willing to lend a helping hand building things or making pork chunks. Boxing was a big part of his life and he enjoyed teaching it to others.

Hector was preceded in death by his wife of 40+ years, Bernice Lara. He is survived by his children Cindy, Stephanie, Mark, Julie, Sandra, Yvonne, and Glorianna, 16 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, and multiple adopted children.

Hector lived a long and happy life surrounded by the love of friends and family. He was a devoted member of the Calvary Church and enjoyed doing activities with his church family.

Church service will be held on February 7th at 1pm at Calvary Chapel of Montrose, 2201 S. Townsend Ave D, officiated by Pastor Ben Garate followed by a burial at Grand View Cemetery in Montrose. Favorite quote “Ay te míro después!”
