Former state Sen. Dave Wattenberg passes away

DENVER — Former state Sen. Dave Wattenberg, a member of the “Cowboy Caucus” known for his pranks and his ability to work across the aisle, never wanted a service after his death.

Instead, knowing he was in failing health in recent months, friends were invited to come and visit with him.

They reminisced about the time he showed up with a can of Raid Yard Guard at the state facility in Mesa County where insects are bred for weed control.
