On May 2, 2010, Chips Barry, a member of the RMCO board of directors since our organization was launched in 2004 and the manager of Denver Water (Colorado’s largest water provider), was killed in an accident on his farm in Hawaii. Chips was two months away from retirement from his Denver Water position, but had agreed to serve for another term on our board.
