Carol Richardson passed away peacefully in her home on Friday, July 24, 2020, after a difficult battle with cancer. She was surrounded by family members and friends, who already miss her deeply.

When Carol moved to Vail in 1988, she began a life of more than 30 years in Eagle County, making lasting impressions and landing squarely in the hearts of everyone she met. If she didn't pour you a cold one while bartending at the Westin and Vail Cascade (for more than 20 years!), you may have caught a glimpse as she hit the slopes in her bikini!  In the late nineties, Carol and her husband Gary moved to Gypsum and created a lovely homestead while raising their daughter, Cheyenne, the light of their lives. In recent years, Carol was the face of the 14K Cafe at Eagle County Regional Airport, becoming a favorite of both local travelers and tourists alike. In a valley where the faces so often change from season to season, Carol was a cherished presence for decades.

In lieu of flowers, donations are being collected to assist the Richardson family with medical expenses and funeral costs. Donate via GoFundMe (search Carol Richardson) or by mail, c/o Bonfire Brewing, PO Box 5276, Eagle, CO 81631.
