Starr Aldrich with Sparky and Engine #10 in the Cottonwood Square parking lot in 2013 as he was lining up for the 4th of July Parade. Aldrich passed away suddenly on July 7th after making a final run in Engine #10 with his wife Betty riding shotgun in the July 4th parade in Niwot.

To the editor:

Aldrich passed away suddenly on July 7th after making a final run in Engine #10 with his wife Betty riding shotgun in the July 4th parade in Niwot.

Starr Aldrich  ~ I recall the first time I met/talked to Starr ...  It was at the 4th of July in 2013. I went over to thank him for bringing Sparky and Engine #10, because they are both so integral to the Niwot community events. And I thanked him for the enjoyment I just had observing Sparky talking to a lady. The lady was looking everywhere for the Sparky handler, who acknowledged that her red dress matched his fire engine. The lady looked at the roof of the Niwot Market thinking someone might be up there so they could observe that she had on a red dress. So fun. Recently I was fortunate to attend a MVFPD community workshop and had the opportunity to visit with Starr. He was a fine gentleman with a big heart for people and service.

Warmly,

Kathy Koehler, Niwot
