When confronted by the sheriff Holflund broke down and told how he had shot his employer to death with a 12-gauge shotgun February 4, carried the body a half mile from the ranch house and hidden it in an abandoned cave. Holflund had since then lived at the ranch and was starting to sell off its properties when arrested yesterday.

Marvin S. Hoflund, 86, of Cheyenne went to meet his loved ones in heaven on April 1, 2011, surrounded by a few of the many who loved him.
He was born in Wellington, Colo., on March 11, 1925. He just celebrated his 86th birthday.
Marvin was the 12th child of 13 born to his beloved mother, Ethel (Betty). He was blessed to spend many of his remaining years with his older sister, Eva (Babe), who preceded him in death in 2003.
He served in World War II with his brothers, James and Leo, all of them serving in the U.S. Navy. He enlisted in the Navy as a selective volunteer on Aug. 6, 1942. He put aboard the USS Brooks, a fast transport with an underwater demolition team (now known as the Navy Seals) and sailed to the South Pacific Arena. On Jan. 6, 1945, near Leyte, Philippines, his ship was hit by a kamikaze pilot. Marvin returned home after his discharge on Nov. 6, 1946.
Marvin earned his General Equivalency Diploma and through the GI Bill began attending the University of Colorado. Marvin graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor's degree in industrial arts in 1954.
Marvin accepted a teaching position in Granby, Colo., in August 1954. In 1956, the couple's first child, Sandra, was born. The family moved to Laramie, where Marv again worked construction. Their son, Michael, was born in 1958. Marvin accepted a teaching position in Mitchell, Neb., in August 1961. Penny, their third child, was born in Scottsbluff, Neb., in 1961.
While living in West Virginia in 1966, the couple had their fourth child, James. The following year the family moved to Cheyenne, when Marv began working for the State Department of Education. He was part of a team that monitored vocational education throughout the state. Three years later, Marvin took a position with the newly formed Laramie County Community College and retired from their employ in 1987.
Marvin loved his family most of all, but his love of music is a large part of his legacy. He played with the Chugwater Philharmonic Stringed Quartet and played at the Life Care Center and The Pointe Frontier, where he spent the last couple of years of his life. When Marvin stopped singing we knew he was saving his voice for the heavenly choir.
Marvin was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, the Masons and the Shrine. Marvin was an avid outdoorsman. He loved spending time with all who wanted to hunt and fish. He loved Volkswagen Beetles and usually had three of four in various disarray while rebuilding the perfect version. His favorite place was his father-in-law's ranch just outside of Fort Collins.
Marvin is survived by his wife, Marjorie; three grown children, Sandy (Tom) Blair of Laramie, Penny (Randy) Hickman of Cheyenne and Jim (Denise) Hoflund of Laramie; his beloved grandchildren, Morgan Hoopes, Kelsey Blair, Cody Hoflund and Ty Hoflund of Laramie; and the granddaughter he helped to raise, Conner Hoflund of Cheyenne.
He was also blessed with two great-grandchildren who made his face light up, Dylan and Chloe Hoopes of Laramie. He is also survived by his "brother," Norman Lesser of California; and his sister-in-law, Nell Davis of Colorado. His sister's beloved daughter, Elwanda Rhoades of Colorado has always remained very close.
Marvin leaves behind many nieces and nephews, too many to name but nonetheless loved beyond words.
