Friends found the bodies of Parker Lofgren, 39, Caroline Lofgren, 42, and their children, Owen, 10, and Sophie, 8, Nov. 28. The sheriff's office believes the hot water and snowmelt systems weren't working correctly, and caused extreme levels of carbon monoxide inside the house. Toxicology reports could take up to two weeks, according to Deputy Coroner Dr. Chuck Johnson.

The funeral service is scheduled for Friday at 10 a.m. at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, located at 2626 E. 7th Avenue Parkway in Denver. A visitation scheduled for Thursday from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Horan & McConaty Funeral Home in Denver has been cancelled.

The family requests donations be made to the Summer Scholars Program, Girls Inc. of Denver, Owen and Sophie Lofgren Memorial Fund at St. Anne's Episcopal School or Young Americans Bank.

A spokesperson for the family has requested that anyone wishing to share Lofgren family or friendship stories send them via e-mail to Those with photographs they would like to share should send them to and mention "Lofgren family" in the subject line.
