Kevin C. Tonso, 50-years old, a resident of Alamosa, Colorado passed into our Lord’s light on October 19th, 2019. A lifetime resident of the San Luis Valley, Kevin was born on November 5th, 1968 in Del Norte, Colorado to James J. and Sandra Tonso, long-time residents of Center, Colorado and Rio Verde, Arizona.

Kevin attended Center and Sargent elementary schools and was a graduate of Sargent High School where he was an active member of the band and a member of the golf team. Kevin had many friends in high school and enjoyed being involved in activities, sports and music.

Kevin earned an Associate of Science degree in Computer Science from Front Range Community College as well as a certificate in website design at Trinidad State College. He put his education to work in the offices at Canon Potato Company and most recently was a volunteer at Narrow Gauge Book Cooperative; a role he thoroughly enjoyed.

Kevin was an avid sports fan, rooting for and following his favorite MLB and NFL teams – especially the Rockies and the Broncos. He would spend his weekends with a line-up of games to watch and scores to follow with team statistics in hand to share with his family.

Kevin is survived by his parents, his sister Kimberly Rolfe (Wyatt Rolfe) of Walla Walla, Washington; nieces Caitlyn Rolfe of Boulder, Colorado and Abigayle Rolfe of Walla Walla, Washington and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Kevin was preceded in death by his grandparents James and Leila Tonso of Center, Colorado and Rio Verde, Arizona and Eloise Goulet of Kansas City, Missouri and Harlingen, TX.

Services for Kevin will take place at Sacred Heart Church in Alamosa, Colorado on Saturday, October 26th, 2019 at 10:00 am, the Rosary will be said at Sacred Heart Church Friday, October 25th at 7:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made through Rogers Family Mortuary to the Narrow Gauge Book Cooperative or San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center in memory of Kevin.

Be at peace, Kev. We will hold you in our hearts forever.

Jim and Sandra,
We haven't talked for a while, but Leroy Weber just called and told me about Kevin's passing. Reading Kevin's obituary, it's obvious Kevin accomplished a lot for which you have to be proud, and I see he shared your love of the Bronco's.

Mary and want to send both of you our condolences. Your in our thoughts and prayers.

Dave and Mary Leiker
