Kermit L. Case


Kermit L. Case, 84 (Jan. 25, 1934-Dec. 24, 2018), of Pagosa Springs, Colo., completed his journey on this earth on Dec. 24, 2018, at Pine Ridge Extended Care Center after a long illness.

Born to Clarence and Lola Case, of Little River, Kan., he was the eldest of two sons. He is survived by his high school sweetheart and loving wife of 64 years, Sharon L. Dimond; five children: Kathy Holthus, Pagosa Springs; Alan Case (Deb), Lexington, Ky.; Janet Boyer (Russ), San Diego, Calif.; Joyce Parsons (Dave), Norman, Okla.; and Karen Bunning (Tracy), Pagosa Springs; brother Edward Case (Beth), of Little River, Kan.; 13 grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren.

Kermit was a master of trades, as he seemed to find success in many fields through his life. He served in the U.S. Marine Corp from 1954-1957. From his roots of farming to an aeronautical product analyst for Beechcraft to insurance and fuel additive sales to banking vice president to owner/photographer, he excelled in his endeavors. He will be remembered fondly for his perpetual smile, open, generous heart and a lifelong ability to march to the beat of his own drum.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the Pine Ridge employees and caregivers for their countless hours and support through the past year.
