OBITUARY

Donald Eugene Altergott

November 4, 1936July 22, 2020

Donald Eugene Altergott, of Roggen, passed away July 22, 2020. Don was born November 4, 1936, to Charles and Mary (Drieth) Altergott, in Loveland, Colorado.

Don attended Prospect Valley High School and proudly served in the Army for over four years. He worked for the Prospect Implement, Inc. in Prospect Valley, Colorado. The family owned and managed business was started in 1942 by his father, Carl. Don joined the business in the mid-60's after his service in the Army and took over a decade later. Don may have been a successful business owner, but he was a farmer at heart. He would spend long days at the shop helping customers, then head outside to work a bit more. He was a humble man that would always underestimate his crop and almost always outperform.

Don was a highly intelligent and extremely patient man. He could fix nearly anything, and if he could not fix it, then it was time to be tossed. Don was also incredibly determined. He loved working on old cars and tractors. He was dependable and willing to help anymore in need, including strangers. He loved the Prospect Valley community and was a strong supporter of local FFA, SE Weld County Fair, and school functions. He had an incredible sense of humor and was always smiling, both of which will be sorely missed.

Don is survived by his son Tim Altergott, his daughters, Traci Wielend and Terri Ewing, grandchildren, Justin Ewing, Jared Ewing and Jake Wieland, great grandchildren, Jayden Ewing and Emma Ewing, a brother, Charles Altergott, and a sister, Mary Jane Glantz.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Toby Altergott, and his parents, Charles and Mary Altergott.

The family would like to thank the care givers from Keene Clinic and Compassus Hospice, Palliative Care and Home Health for their compassionate care of Don.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2020, at Prospect Implement, Inc., 33894 Hwy 52 Keenesburg at Prospect Implement, at 10:00 a.m. Memorial contributions may be made to Keene Clinic, 190 Main Street, Keenesburg, Colorado 80643.

Don, what a guy! You could get to the dealership at 5am and Don would be there working in the shop on a old tractor. Loved talking to him about “Work Ethic” Boy did I get an education. I was fortunate that he would let me in the door as a salesman! He would some times say Boy’s another salesman! He would point at me and say , see that door... use it!
Of course he was kidding, most of the time!?
He had a great sense of humor and a wonderful smile!
He reminded me so much of my dad...
They don’t make them like him anymore!
He will be forever missed!

I first met Don in 1991. That day I was the next "new territory guy". Don was a man of experience that chose to share his experience, much of which I continue to share today. It was always a pleasure to call on, or to be called by Don. He will be missed!

Don was a very special Friend , a great business man, and a wonderful dealer of ours.

No matter how bad things were, he always
had a smile, and a go forward attitude.

He will be sadly missed.

Tim, I am sorry for the loss of your Dad. Donny had a super great sense of humor! He knew more about Versatile tractors than anybody I know. I will miss getting to tease him at the store. Diane and myself will keep your family in our prayers.
