Memorial Bench for Daniel Installed
On July 24, 1999, Boy Scout 359 installed a park bench in Daniel's memory along the South Rim Trail at Roxborough
State Park, ten miles south of Columbine. Daniel was once a member of the Boy Scout Troop that preceded 359. The bench was built by
a Park volunteer. It was carried out to the site and installed by the Troop, which also built a path to the bench
from the trail. A plaque identifies the bench. Roxborough is the Mauser family's favorite hiking area.
The funds for the bench and gifts for the volunteers were part of a memorial fund set up by the Colorado Association
of Transit Agencies (CASTA). That fund has also helped pay for a bench and tree here in a neighborhood park and
to keep this web site going for over a year.
We're very grateful to
- Park Manager Susie Trumble
- Park Ranger Heather Poe
- Volunteer bench-builder Tex Sheffield
- Troop 359 and its leader, and our neighbor, Pete DeFillipis!
Thank you all very much!
