April 28, 1960 – February 4, 2018
Central City resident Stuart Jennings Wyatt fell back into the arms of his creator and guided back to heavens this past Sunday the 4th of February. Stu was loved by everyone who met him, a friend to all, and a wonderful father to his two children whom so dearly he loved. Stu, a native of Arvada, was a man of incredible talent, creativity and personality. After High School Stu attended the Colorado Institute of Art and used his incredible artistic talents to eventually run his own a successful graphic design business for well over twenty years. His artistic talents were always with him as he could create something beautiful within minutes. Stu was lover of life and lived it to the fullest. During Stu’s younger years, he and his brother Doug developed a passion for skydiving and perused that passion to the championship level. He went on to compete in international skydiving contests in Finland, Spain, and even parachuted into the old Mile High Stadium on several occasions. He was lover of sports and enjoyed playing hockey, downhill skiing, fishing, kayaking, and he really loved doing stunts on his trampoline with his kids. Stu was also a lover of music, growing up in a musical family where singing, playing guitar and making beautiful music as a family were cherished memories of Stu’s.
In the later years of his life Stu moved to Central City, a little over five years ago, but had a long-time connection to Gilpin County as his mother and father, Buzz & Nancy Wyatt of Arvada owned property near Apex. Stu’s father was “a real cowboy” as Stu would say who boarded his horses for many years in the pastures near the Central City cemeteries. When Stu finally moved to Central, his outgoing personality made him a friend to everyone in Central City who had the pleasure of meeting him. He was the type of person who would truly give you the shirt off his back and would never say no to someone in need. Stu was a one of a kind and will be truly missed and loved by so many. Stu spent the last two years of life with the love of his life, Miss Danae Baudette of Central City. They shared a love for each other that would inspire us all – they were so blessed
Stu is survived by his two beloved children Conner and Elly Wyatt of Ft. Collins, his parents, Buzz & Nancy of Arvada, his brother Doug of Atlanta, his brother Allen of Arvada, his sister Lisa of Golden, and his sister Diana of Utah.
Services will be held at the Horan & McConaty Funeral Home, located at 7577 W 80th Ave, Arvada, CO this Saturday at 3 pm with a reception to follow.
Hey Stu, Thanks for being such a great friend to me and thanks for all your help with my paint projects over the years. Love you brother! –Eric
