Philip K. Dick's grave in Colorado


Author Philip K. Dick, who died in 1982, is not buried in California as you might expect, but in Riverside Cemetery in Fort Morgan, Colorado, in a grave with his twin sister. 

My friend Tracy Harms, who used to live in Cleveland, now lives in Colorado (where he used to live when he met RAW years ago), and he discovered by accident that the grave is nearby. So he went there and sent me the photographs, giving me permission to post them on the blog. 

Here is a photo in context with other Dick family stones.

A closeup view of the headstone from above. Tracy explains, "There were a score of small items that had been left at the twins' stone. Most are visible here along the top of it." 

Addendum: I forgot to give the location of the grave -- Section K, Block 1, Lot 56.

Thank you for sharing this. I remember I felt so angry when Phil died just months before Blade Runner opened. I knew his books would appear at supermarket checkouts when the movie opened and he would finally get his well deserved fame.
