Dr. Ramon
Edward Bisque
(Ray), 82, passed
away in Blue
Mountain, Colorado
on Monday,
June 9, 2014 of natural
causes. Ray lived every
moment to the fullest, up
to his very last.
Ray grew up in Iron
River, a small mining
town in Michigan's Upper
Peninsula.
He went on to earn his
undergraduate degree at
St. Norbert College, and
advanced degrees from
Iowa State University,
where he met his wife,
Marie Livingston Young.
After marrying in Algona,
Iowa, Ray and Marie
re-located to Colorado
in 1959. A father first, he
became a professor at
Colorado School of Mines,
an entrepreneur, an innovator,
and a writer.
Early in his career, he
was the director of a curriculum
project which
involved contributors in
what was arguably the
most interdisciplinary
gathering of geoscientists
ever convened in the
United States.
Activities from his
home base at the
Colorado School
of Mines earned
him recognition
as a Fellow
of the American
Association for the
Advancement of Science,
a Distinguished Lecturer,
and a feted Native Son in
his home town.
Ramon is survived by
his wife of 60 years, Marie,
his six children: Camille
Ford (Edward), Stephen
Bisque (Colleen), Laura
Tracy (Scott), Thomas
Bisque, Daniel Bisque
(Brenda), Matthew Bisque
(Merrilee), fifteen grandchildren:

Emily Bisque, Lorae and
Stephen Tracy, William,
Anna, Megan and Jonathan
Bisque, Joseph and

eight-month-old yellow
lab, Ellie, who all reside in
Denver, Colorado.
He is predeceased by his
father and mother, Edward
and Camilla Bisque, and
his sister, Dorothy "Babe"
Bisque.
