Obituary

Lars Vincent Fontaine was born in Denver on January 29, 1993 and died on June 20, 2020 at the age of 27 due to post-surgical complications.

Larz, as he preferred to spell it, graduated from Legacy High School in Broomfield and went on to pursue 3-D Animation at CU Denver. He had a gift for sketching and creative writing from the time he learned to hold a crayon. He developed into an exceptional artist with a devotion to tattooing. Most especially he loved to create body art that commemorated special events in people’s lives. He also donated his time and talents, in the form of street-art wall murals, for many youth spaces within local churches.

Tenderhearted, inspirational, affectionate, gentle, gracious, and empathetic were many of Lars’ tendencies that strengthened his stance as an advocate for the mentally ill and homeless of Colorado. He had fallen into that population himself in the past. During some of his most agonizing times he found "a best friend in Jesus." Armed with his own testimony of street survival, he often sought ways to give to someone he deemed as less fortunate, either on his own volition or through time with Volunteers of America.

Although mostly soft-natured, he loved to play and watch rugby. He spent a couple of seasons on the pitch. Stepping away from the city scene to go hiking or camping in the Colorado back country was a necessity to reset himself. His commitment to Leave No Trace was evident in even the tiniest pieces of litter he would find and remove from the trail.

Music was a significant piece of his identity. He was seven years old when he attended his first concert, which was Ringo Starr at Red Rocks seated on his dad’s shoulders. Lars listened to many different genres of music. Ska music, enjoyed with friends, energized him the most. His constant bits of wit coupled with a wide grin, unrelenting sense of humor (which included a rare talent in the ability to interpret all Far Side jokes), and loyalty to his friends, created enduring relationships. His most cherished friendship was that with his sister, Eva. He vehemently protected her and not-so-secretly admired her.

He is survived by his mom Recie Fontaine (Paul), dad Brian Fontaine (Darby), sister Eva Fontaine (Dustin), nephew Nolan, sister Vienna, as well as brothers Miles and Ian. Aunt Kathryn Hughes (Brad), cousins Aaron and Alex; Uncle Paul, cousins Connor and Cara; Uncle Dave, cousins Thomas and Katherine. Uncle Rick, Aunt Chris (Ric), Aunt Val (Roger), Uncle Gary (Jill), Aunt Laura, and many paternal cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents Tom and Jean Monroe, grandparents JR & Rose Marie Fontaine, Aunts Kelly Monroe and Francie Herman, and cousin James Monroe.

Larz, I will always remember your kind and generous heart. You and Eva spent time with my children, Allison and Derek during summer vacations. Derek was a few years younger and it was cute to see him trying to act like you! You always included him and he loved getting shirts from you! Especially the button down ones that would have a dragon, or skull on it. To this day he still prefers to dress up! I send this prayer to Recie, Eva and all of your family - Be kind to yourselves. Honor your grief by feeling all the emotions that will flood thru you- hold tight to the knowledge that to know great grief is to know you Loved Lara immensely. God bless you all and keep you safe Until you are reunited again. Jerilyn Evans
