In Memory of Roger Hunter Debenham:

Roger Hunter Debenham died April 29, 2009. While living in Drake, Roger and Karen were founders of the Storm Mountain Emergency Response Team in their community on Storm Mountain . A fitting tribute to Roger was the incredible celebration of his life on April 18 put on by SMERT. He did not want a memorial service after he died, but preferred to be part of the celebration and “enjoy the party”.

Roger was a practical joker, had a quick wit and gentle nature. He loved Drake and the mountain community so much. He had a wonderful marriage for 25 years. We know the angels are enjoying him now.

He was born July 24, 1938 to Roger and Margaret (Hunter) in Joliet , IL . He grew up in Wilmette , IL graduating from New Trier High School . He lived in Antioch , IL, Chicago , IL , and Zion , IL before moving to Drake in 1998.

Roger was preceded in death by his father, Roger Hamilton. He is survived by his wife Karen, two brothers, David (Barbara) of Sturgeon Bay , WI and Peter of Drake, CO, his sister Maud ( Tracy ) Galloway of Evergreen, CO and their 97 year old mother, Margaret of Sturgeon Bay, WI. Nephews David (Sarah) of Del Mar, MD, Chad and Casey Galloway of Evergreen, CO, Brandon Debenham of Denver CO and nieces Cody Galloway of Denver, CO and Mera Debenham of Durango, CO.
