Bridges spent 28 years working for Gates, beginning as field representative in Oklahoma, moving to field management in Dallas, and for the past 20-plus years in numerous corporate office and field management assignments based in Denver.
Bridges leaves behind his wife Sue, daughters Crista Jaeggli and husband Mark, Blaire Denneny and husband Eric and son Doug Bridges, two grandchildren, Olivia and Gunnar Jaeggli, and countless other dear loved ones.
