Denver was an inspirational, kind hearted, creative entrepreneur. The accident decades ago that took so much from him also motivated him to pursue his designs for ladder safety items. There is no doubt that other people will be safer because of Denver's determination to see it through.
I have fond memories of the road trip that Denver, with Nicole, made to my shop in New Hampshire and then the factory in Maine. I am blessed to have known him, to have participated with his creative enthusiasm, and to share, as a kindred spirit, the loss he felt as the devoted husband of Sherry. My heart goes out to all the Inman family, with hope that the fond memories of both your parents will draw you and keep you together.
