Dennis L. Heid
April 15, 1964 ~ August 14, 2023 (age 59) 59 Years Old
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Dennis L. Heid of Pueblo West on August 14th, 2023. Taken too soon, he was 59 years old. Dennis was born in Pueblo on April 15th, 1964, to Lawrence (Boots) and Lucille Heid, the youngest of three.
He is survived by his loving wife Lisa, daughter Lacy, grandsons Lincoln, Brixton, and August; sister Anne Kouba, nephew Matt Kouba (Heather), great-nieces Dawsen, Lillian, Mattie; nephew Mitch Kouba (Kari), great-nephews Casher and Redding; brother Larry Heid (Jimmy Irvine), niece Shere Irvine-Sterk, and great-nephews Deacon and Van. He was predeceased by his parents and brother-in-law, David Kouba.
Dennis grew up in Penrose and attended school in Florence. After graduating from Florence High School in 1982, he continued his education at the University of Southern Colorado in Pueblo. Following graduation, he taught elementary school for many years.
He was a kind and gentle soul who never had a bad word to say about anyone. He had a smile for everyone and never shied away from a hug. As a parent and grandparent, he was proud, loving and patient and always the fun uncle. No matter how old the friendship, he always held a warmth for those he knew and cared about including childhood friends Greg Little, Kazuto Hayashi, Jr., and Bob Anderson.
An avid reader, he was interested in all aspects of American history, especially Native Americans and the Old West. He was an animal lover to the core, especially cats and birds of prey.
As a proud Coloradoan he was a devoted Bronco fan. A lifetime highlight was attending the 1998 winning Super Bowl.
Dennis's name was synonymous with music. It was his true calling. Whether listening to it or making it, he was home. He was a professional bass player and vocalist in numerous bands throughout the years, including Cherokee, Cholla Canyon, and the Atomic Fireballs.
A Celebration of Life will be held on October 8th at 2 pm at the Steel City Eagles, 704 Elmhurst Place, Pueblo, CO. 81004
