Hiker who died on Quandary identified as 67-year-old David Law

A male hiker who died last week while hiking Quandary Peak in Summit County has been identified. County coroner Regan Wood identified the man as 67-year-old David Law, and his death was caused by acute heart failure due to coronary heart disease.

An obituary listed by Monarch Society funeral home said that Law was a Casper, Wyoming resident who went to the University of North Dakota and was a consulting geologist until his death. Law loved the outdoors and enjoyed hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and gardening. Law is survived by his daughter, Sarah Elizabeth of Denver; his son, William Michael of San Francisco, California; his sister, Ruth Hahn of Fargo, North Dakota; and two brothers, Eugene Law of Ventura, California and James Law of Cooperstown, North Dakota. David was preceded in death by his wife, Laura Law.
