Remembing Emmett


A Florida native, Emmett shows
off the first fish he ever caught through the ice,
here in Colorado on a 2018 club outing. 
If you're looking for a way to honor the memory of our late friend and club member Emmett Allan Jones, consider a donation to the club's In Memorium fund. Unless earmarked for other projects by family members, In Memorium funds donated to the club go to Colorado Youth Outdoors, where Emmett was a club liason. The club frequently volunteers to help with youth outdoor recreational activities at CYO's Swift Ponds northwest of Windsor.

Born and raised in Jacksonville, FL, he and wife Sandy moved to Loveland in 2000 after retiring from Anheuser-Busch. He wanted to be closer to their daughter, Blaire J. Ferguson and granddaughters, Emory Ferguson LeFebre and Mason Ferguson.

Checks should be sent to Club Treasurer Barbra Ding, 20059 Northmoor Drive, Johnstown, CO 80534, made out to the Loveland Fishing Club in Emmett's name. She can be reached at Sales@agroomroom.com.

In Memorium donation option

In honor of deceased club members, the Loveland Fishing Club has entered into a partnership with Colorado Youth Outdoors to help fund outdoor recreational activities that strengthen the relationship between youngsters and their families.

Unless earmarked for other projects by family members, In Memoriam funds donated to the club will now go into a special CYO Loveland Fishing Club Members fund that will be used to help with the nonprofit's work at Swift Ponds outdoor education and recreational facility northwest of Windsor.

The first donation of $300 was made in memory of Dave O. Harem, 81, the club's first treasurer and one of the club's most active volunteers with the annual Loveland Police Kids Derby, the Fishing Club Senior Derby and other projects.  The money was given to the club by family and friends in lieu of flowers after his death in February 2017.

"This is a very appropriate way to help us honor the memory of Dave and other club members who will inevitably be passing on sometime in the future," says President Fred Riehm.  A number of club members are active volunteers at Swift Ponds, and the club annually helps with CYO fund raisers and introduces young girls to fishing at their annual Girl Scouts Day Camp at Swift Ponds.  CYO also partners with the club in support of the annual Loveland Police Kids Derby.
