Dr. Miles Brent Collett, 61, of Parker, peacefully passed away on Saturday, March 17, surrounded by his loved ones. Miles was born in Glenwood Springs on Jan. 9, 1957, to James Fred Collett and Margaret Beasley Collett.

Miles was passionate about many things, including dentistry, cooking, Colorado sports teams and working in his yard but, most importantly, spending time with his family.

He was fortunate to witness the birth of his two grandchildren, Charlee Aalborg and Jack Aalborg. He is also survived by his mother, Margaret Collett, of Parker; father, Fred Collett (Teri), of Eagle; brother Michael Collett, of Grand Junction; and sister Janet McGinnis (Bryon), of Eagle, along with nieces and nephews.
