Dr.  Ramon E Bisque Obituary
Dr. Ramon Edward Bisque (Ray), 82, passed away in Golden, 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: Jenae, Daniel and Evan Ford, Sarah, Rebecca, Madalyn and Emily Bisque, Lorae and Stephen Tracy, William, Anna, Megan and Jonathan Bisque, Joseph and Charlotte Bisque, and his 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. For information about the Memorial Service please call 303-642-3111.
