Tow trucks line up for deceased Delta man
Dozens of tow trucks and emergency vehicles lined up in Delta to honor Ryan Wells, a man killed in a snow-cat accident on the Grand Mesa.
More than 30 tow trucks and emergency vehicles lined up in front of the Delta Performing Arts Center, to honor 30-year-old Ryan Wells, who died in a snow-cat accident on the Grand Mesa.
Wells owned Ol' Red's Towing on F Road in Delta, for the past six years.
Tow truck drivers and others in the tow businesses described Wells as someone who ran his business for the community, and understood what it meant to serve others.
A tow truck carried him to his final resting place at the Delta Cemetery.
"He was important here, and he had a business that took care of people here, and people understood that. That's one thing that makes it important is, what's your service for the community? And what do you do for the people you are around? Ryan was always out there doing it." said Randy Heisa, Tow Truck Driver for Western Towing.
Randy drove down from Grand Junction to be there for the funeral while other tow companies made longer trips from towns such as Glenwood Springs and Norwood.
The procession also honored Richard Colton, who also died in the accident.
Ryan Wells leaves behind his parents, grandparents, sisters, and his daughter.
