Tribute pour on Alex oslen and Martyn pearson death
I’m sorry to post this terrible news but yesterday afternoon, Martyn Pearson and Alex Olsen (owners of Gila Hike & Bike in Silver City) were killed in a head-on car crash near Deming, NM. This is, of course, a crushing blow to our community but also to so many who benefitted from the support and grace of this little shop at the end of so many long journeys. They were at the heart of so many good things here and there aren’t words to describe the loss to all of us. There will be a vigil tonight at 6PM Mountain time in Gough Park in Silver City. Keep them and their two surviving teenage children in your thoughts.
A big hole has been left in your heart. My prayers to you and to all of the family.
My deep care goes to all family and friends Wally. L
Oh Wally, I am so sorry to hear this. Sending lots of prayers and healing thoughts to you and all of their families.😘🤍
