Trey Holt has seen plenty in his years as coroner, funeral home director

...
Jared Holt, 8, who aspires to become a funeral director like his father, Trey, tries on his dad's suit jacket as Trey puts on a tie before attending a funeral.
...
Trey Holt sits in a 19th Street Diner booth, the murmur of conversation and clinking of glasses and plates serving as the morning's soundtrack.
He's sipping an iced tea - his preferred alternative to morning coffee - before he has to head back to the funeral home.
Across from him is "Big John" Lindsey, owner of Big John's Building and Home Center, who's trying to conquer a Sudoku puzzle in the day's local newspaper.
The two friends often meet for breakfast and banter topics ranging from the Denver Broncos to business in Glenwood Springs.
Holt enjoys a nice, slow-moving morning.

Holt watched the flames come over the hill from the greens at the Glenwood Springs Golf Club.
"When we teed off, I remember telling (my wife) Tami that it was really strange the wind was with us on No. 1," said Holt, owner of Farnum-Holt Funeral Home in Glenwood Springs and Rifle Funeral Home.
...
Holt knew he needed help, and he knew where to get sound advice - his father owns a funeral home in Ca,on City.
"I called my dad - who always has words of wisdom or advice," Holt said."He said, 'One thing we've got going for us is time.' I called Big John that night, actually more like 2 or 3 in the morning, and said this is what we need: sawhorses, boards, supplies.That's the way our community is."
In the hours and days that followed the fire, Holt learned what it really takes to be coroner.His work was not only important to the county, but to the memories of the 14 firefighters.

...
Holt has been involved in the funeral home business since he was in his early 20s and has been the Garfield County coroner since 1994.
...
For Holt, it's hard to imagine a day more tragic than Storm King.
...
Dealing with the "horrible" is a reality for Holt.Confronting death's darkest moments, he copes by thinking of the families first.
...
Later when Holt was working at the funeral home, he dealt with a death that was more certain.
...
"I was an assistant working at a golf club there in Ca,on City and I thought, 'I might want to be a golf pro,'" said Holt, who has a 2 handicap."But when I was about 22 or 23 I decided I wanted to work at the funeral home."
Holt, who moved to Glenwood Springs in 1986, learned everything he knows about the funeral business through his 68-year-old father.
"I just think seeing my dad work with the families, that overcomes what you have to see," he said."I call my dad every day.He's the big guy."
Golf with Big John and friends, along with sporadic pheasant hunting trips in South Dakota, help Holt put tragedy in perspective.He plays in a Thursday night men's golf league in Rifle, and is also a dedicated Denver Broncos fan.
A day on the fairways offers a slice of solace for Holt.
"Dealing with grief, I think that's why I enjoy golf so much," he said."You have to have an outlet.I don't think you ever get used to it, though."
Family life
Marriage and fatherhood also keep Holt grounded.
...
You do appreciate every day," said Tami, who worked with Trey for 16 years before becoming a teacher at Yampah Mountain High School."I really appreciate life - and death.I've made sure all my family and I are on speaking terms."
All in a day's work
Before the twins came on board, life may not have afforded time for Holt to even consider fatherhood.
Demanding coroner duties - along with funeral home director responsibilities - often kept him on the run and away from home.Today, deputy coroners Steve Pollard and Thomas Walton do the majority of the embalming and inform families of a fatality, instead of Holt.
...
For now, there are a few cases that Holt would like to see closed.Cases that have haunted the county.
...
As a coroner and a man who knows how important it is to help bring closure to the lives of families, Holt is haunted by one case.
...
As an integral part of community for 20 years, Holt has formed many bonds in Glenwood Springs and beyond.The personal nature of his business - especially his comforting nature - lend to that.
"Death is a private thing and, because you help people through it, there's a connection.Trey has that with a lot of people," Tami said."He's a very special man and he has a very special job."
In November, Holt is running uncontested as the Republican candidate for re-election as coroner.
And people aren't afraid to show their appreciation.
One morning, as Holt was sitting at the 19th Street Diner with Big John, a woman approached their table.She had a family member die and Holt handled the arrangements.
Before he knew it, she was hugging him.
"That does happen a lot," he said modestly.
