Emanuel L. Eckas, 88, of Greeley, passed away on March 9, 2020 in Greeley, Colorado. He was born to Adam and Lena (Eckhart) Eckas on November 29, 1931 near Ault, Colorado.
After graduating from Galeton High School, Emanuel enlisted and honorably served in the US Army during the Korean War. He felt fortunate and privileged to be able to complete the Northern Colorado Honor Flight to Washington D.C., along with other combat veterans, prior to his passing.
“Every man is called to give love to the work of his hands. Every man is called to be an artist.” Emanuel returned to working the land after his discharge from the Army, eventually owning a farm just south of Kersey. Upon his retirement, he joined Agland as a salesman. It was his love of farming, encyclopedic knowledge of the people and history of the region, combined with a natural ease with his fellow man that led him to an award winning second career.
Always quick with a smile and a laugh, his kind and gentle nature belied the fact that life had dealt him many challenges over the years. While some might have become bitter after such experiences, this man of faith always maintained his positive attitude. Emanuel enjoyed fishing and dancing in his younger days, while later in life becoming an ardent Nuggets & Broncos fan. He will be deeply missed by all those blessed to have known him.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Emanuel Eckas’ name can be made out to the American Alzheimer’s Association or The National MS Society in care of Adamson Life Celebration Home, 2000 47th Avenue Greeley, Colorado 80634. To leave condolences for Emanuel’s family,
Emanuel is survived by his children, Wayne (Andrea) Eckas, Mike (Trish) Dinges and Steve Dinges (Chris); grandchildren, Adam Eckas, Aaron Eckas, Andrew Eckas, Joshua Dinges, Benjamin Dinges, and Samuel Dinges, and great grandchild, Avery Eckas; son-in-law, Rick Reiber; siblings, Herbert (Dorothy) Eckas and Joyce (Nevin) Glassgow.
He was preceded in death by his first and second wives, Delores and Thelma Eckas; his daughters, Carolyn and Lynda; his parents and brother, Robert.
Graveside service will be held at 11:30 am, Friday, March 20, 2020 at Sunset Memorial Gardens, 3400 W 28th Avenue in Greeley. Reception to follow at Adamson Life Celebration Home in Greeley.
