Liam Gately, beloved son and brother, age 24, passed away July 8th, 2017. Born and raised in Boulder, Liam was a free spirit, loved the outdoors, was a proud Eagle Scout, and a recent graduate of FRCC. Survived by parents Jim & Ann, sister Niamh, a large extended family, and circle of friends who loved him unconditionally.

Liam was a kind hearted soul who cared about the well-being of everyone he met. He was generous to a fault and the most non-materialistic person you could meet. He had many passions in life and would continually explore new avenues. A true adventurer, he was most at home in outdoors. He was great to talk with on a wide variety of subjects. He was quite resourceful and creative, always curious and forever experimenting.

Liam spent the last 6 months working hard on his physical, mental and spiritual well being. He was re-emerging into a better place as the fine young man we had all longed to see. And just like that, he was unexpectedly called to move on to an even better place, escaping his bane, to find true peace.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Liam's name to

Cherish every moment in life,
whether you're a wave or a ripple.
Everything you do travels outward in a circle,
in all directions.
Like a meteor or pebble hitting the water,
your impact crests out.
Part of you will wash up on the shore,
somewhere beautiful.
Other parts keep the waves and lives left behind
in motion for eternity.
Your energy never leaves us,
it will sway our ways and we will never forget
to chart our ways onward with you
and on every path we take.
