Someone covered Coors’ tombstone in spray paint at Crown Hill Cemetery in Wheat Ridge a few days ago. Nearby gravesites were in pristine condition.

The Coors family released a statement on Sunday:

It’s already a sad time for our family as we mourn the loss of one our patriarchs – Bill Coors. It reminds us of the tremendous impact that one can make when you are hard-working, kind and charitable. This senseless and shameful act of vandalism at the Adolph Coors gravesite runs counter to everything Bill and the rest of our family stands for.

It’s not clear if police have any persons of interest or suspect descriptions.

    I’m so sorry that there are such mean people in this world and mean people did this. One thing I know for sure is God won’t let them get away with this, They may think they did, but it will happen back to them 3 fold. I am so sorry.
