By 1900, he was a music teacher in Ohio and just a few years later in 1903 he moved with his family to Colorado Springs. He was a violinist and a violin teacher here and was a prominent musician in town. He was the director of Fink's Orchestra which played at the Burns Theatre and he was also director of the Antlers Hotel Orchestra for 25 years. Mr. Fink also directed Sunday concerts at Stratton Park. He certainly left a musical legacy for generations to come. He shared his gift which brought culture and entertainment to a new and growing city. May we always remember those who put their heart and soul into their occupation. He is buried at Evergreen in a lovely family plot.
