Our Colorado biker community lost a wonderful soul today.  Dennis "Big D" Petri was tragically killed by a driver up in Nederland.  Out of respect for the family and all that loved him, no further details will be published now, and we will keep you updated.  It is unclear what the family will immediately need, but funeral expenses and other daily expenses will certainly be needed to get them through this tragic accident.  We know there is not a biker out there that hasn't been touched by this couple at Dirty Dogs or at a ride/event.  It was rare that he didn't have a crowd around him of riders wanting to say hello and listen to good music, tell stories, and love life.    This loss is unimaginable now, so we ask your help to give this family what they need right now to get thru the months ahead.

100% of what is raised will go to the family for funeral expenses and whatever they need.  More details will be provided as we get them.

Anonymous Friend 07/10/2023 $26.08 I only knew Dennis through his work and mutual friends. He took care of our main line twice a year for the past 3 years. We would chat while he worked and always felt he was a kind, caring man. I was sad to hear the news when my friends told me about the accident. Sending healing vibes to his friends and family.
