Ray L. Bartusiak, 82, of
Littleton, Colorado died
peacefully July 6, 2014 at
Littleton Adventist Hospital
supported by his loving
family. Ray was preceded
in death by his father Adam
Edward Bartusiak and
mother Josephine Kaslon.
Ray is survived by his wife
Lois of 52 years, three sons
Bill (Peggy), Tom, and Bob
(Carole), seven grandchildren
Blake, Dylan, Courtney,
Cody, Brady, Tori and
Nina and a sister Arlene
Buchanan.
Ray was born in Ord, Nebraska
and spent his childhood
in Kearney, Nebraska
where he attended high
school. He graduated from
Nebraska State Teachers
College in Kearney, Nebraska
and used his degree
to teach high school business
classes in Arapahoe,
Nebraska. After teaching,
Ray had a successful career
working for Texaco in Montana,
Wyoming and Colorado,
where he retired after
37 years as a comptroller.
Ray was first and foremost
a devoted Christian
and active parishioner of
Saint Timothy's Episcopal
Church. He filled many
roles within the church
and spent countless hours
serving the Lord. Ray was
a devoted husband to his
wife that he so dearly loved,
a proud father and doting
grandfather that provided
unconditional love and
support. Ray never knew a
stranger, as he befriended
everyone that crossed his
path. He greeted people
with kindness, a big smile,
and a humorous comment.
Ray was also an avid
gardener and was known
to share the bounties of his
flower gardens with family,
friends and neighbors.
Ray will be greatly missed,
but his memory will live
on forever with those who
were fortunate enough to
know him.
