Terry MathewsThis is a sticky entry (i.e., it will always be shown as the top entry on my latest entries page) about Terry Lee Mathews, known on LiveJournal as mountain_hiker. Terry passed away on Saturday, July 13, 2013 at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was a 1993 graduate of Widefield High School and a 1999 graduate of University of Colorado at Colorado Springs with a bachelor's in Geography. An avid mountaineer and photographer, he is survived by his parents, Louis and Yong Chi (Nancy); a brother, Tom; three nieces and a nephew; his cats, Luna and Menchi; and numerous friends. Terry's ashes will be scattered in the mountains he loved so much.

A celebration of life was held Saturday, July 27th at Garden of the Gods. Mark Hayes Photography covered the memorial event; online galleries are available on Facebook and on his website, where you may purchase prints. He also wrote a blog post about the event.

Terry's ashes were taken to the summit of Crestone Needle in August. Britt Jones made a video from that trip; it's viewable at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fk1lGUmrPvs
