Vet attained heights in career, recreation

A Colorado Life

I never met this fellow, but what a great spirit! We all know the risks we take when we venture into the mountains, but the rewards are so sublime we take them willingly. - OBITUARIES:

Veterinarian Henry E. Everding III died Feb. 19, fatally injured by falling rocks as he climbed in Chile's southern Patagonia region. He was 42.

The rocks fell as Everding and his longtime climbing partner, Clifford Leight, ascended a couloir near Puerto Natales in Parque Nacional Torres del Paine. Leight was not injured.

Veterinarians throughout the Front Range knew Everding, of Littleton, as a consummately intuitive surgeon. People from Jackson, Wyo., to Katmandu, Nepal, cherished the care and attention he gave their pets."
