Peter A. Drobeck passed away in Golden, Colorado on Wednesday November 1, 2017. Born in Detroit, Michigan on March 13, 1954, he spent his formative years in East Greenbush, NY where he came to appreciate his parents' great love of nature and music. Graduating in 1977 From SUNY New Paltz with a Bachelor of Arts, he went on to pursue his passion for geology at the Colorado School of Mines where he completed his Master of Science in 1979. His work as an exploration geologist took him to Mexico, Central and South America, Mongolia, India, Africa and Indonesia. He was passionate about finding the next great precious metals discovery. Everywhere he went he enjoyed immersing himself in and getting to know the local culture. His mix of intelligence, charm, mischievous humor and joyful storytelling made him a favorite everywhere. Fortunately his personal passions were portable-fishing, hiking, music, skiing, and especially adventure. He will be missed by many and is survived by his wife Kharen Drobeck, daughter Melissa Mullins, sons Jason and Ale Drobeck, sisters Karen Watson and Susan "Charly" Drobeck, and brother David Drobeck. A memorial service will be held on December 9, 2017 at 2:00 pm at the First United Methodist Church of Golden. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to in honor of Pete.
