BOULDER, Colo. — A group of colorful characters packed a Boulder park Thursday night but it was clear it was the one person who was missing from the event that stood out the most.
Friends gathered to remember 30-year-old Aaron Tuneberg, a Boulder resident who was brutally murdered in an attempted robbery in March. Investigators have charged two teenagers with the attack and the case remains under investigation.
“He just loved bike culture, that was his real passion,” said Tuneberg’s sister Rachel Weston Rowell.
On Thursday night, nearly a hundred bike enthusiasts showed up to honor Tuneberg’s memory. The family hopes to keep Aaron’s legacy alive by starting a nonprofit organization that will benefit developmentally disabled adults.
The group, which is still being built, is encouraging donations.
People wishing to contribute can make tax-deductible donations by making a check out to “Aaron Matthew Tuneberg Memorial Fund.” Checks should be mailed to:
