It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Mirk. David passed from this life on Thursday March 1st from complications due to an aneurysm. David was a wonderful father to his son Max, an amazing husband to his wife Catherine and a true friend to many.
Dave loved golfing, skiing, mountain biking and racing his formula 1000 race car. David was happiest when he was riding or golfing with his friends or racing his “Red Car ”. David was born in Los Angeles California to Michael and Kari Mirk and spent his formative years in California, racing at Sears Point and racing in Bandol France. He soon realized that Colorado was a wonderful place and continued his studies at CU Boulder while always hoping to be able to continue his racing.
Luckily for both, David met Catherine Colt and they wed in 1999. Much like his father, David worked in the technology industry and was happy and successful in this role. David will be missed for his generosity, humility and sense of humor.
He leaves behind many people who loved him dearly. Predeceased by his father Michael Mirk and his brother Michael Mirk Jr. , David is survived by his wife Catherine Colt, son Maxwell Mirk and mother Kari Mirk , and nephews Jordan and Sam. David would like nothing more than to share his good fortune and generosity with the following organizations ; The Pikes Peak Humane Society, Kids on Bikes, Bicycle Colorado, Rocky Mountain PBS or First Tee. A private ceremony is pending.
