Obituary of Paul Stephen LaRue

   Paul Stephen (Stevie) LaRue passed away at his home in Lyons, CO on June 13th after battling lung cancer. He was 78 years old. Stevie was born in Springfield, OH in February of 1945, to parents Barbara & Vicky LaRue. He grew up there with his brothers Jack & Doug, and sister Vicky. Stevie lived in the Midwest until his 20s when he relocated to Boulder, CO in the early 1970’s.

   After spending some time in the Boulder area, he moved to Ward, CO where he built a home and started a family. Stevie worked for Boulder County Parks & Open Space for 30 years, and moved to Lyons, CO in 2005. Here, he fell in love with the bustling music scene and the friendly community. Stevie volunteered at Planet Bluegrass for many years, and became an integral part of the scene.

   Stevie LaRue will be dearly missed by all his friends and family. He was a free spirit, one of a kind, and left an impression with everyone he met. He will be remembered as a kind soul, a lover of music and nature, and #1 fan of his sons Pete & Jake.

   There will be a celebration of life at Riverbend in Lyons, CO on July 23rd from 2-6pm. All who knew Stevie are welcome to attend.

   He is survived by his sons Peter & Jake LaRue, daughter-in-law Auburn Lewis, granddaughter Evly LaRue, former wife Amy LaRue, nephew Tyrone LaRue, nieces Melody LaRue & Kimberley LaRue Boston, great nephews Nicholas Johnson & Joff Boston, and great niece Jolene LaRue.
