Christopher Michael Colmore Obituary
On September 21, 2014, Christopher Michael Colmore set himself free, dying peacefully after a long and courageous battle with bipolar disease and depression. Chris was 26 years old. He was born in Texas and spent his childhood around Houston and Borger. However, he always considered Estes Park his home. He attended both middle and high school there, graduating in 2006. He was a member of the first EPHS varsity soccer team – as well as a member of the EPHS 3A State Championship Knowledge Bowl Team.

Wise beyond his years, Chris had a wonderful soul… a kind, gentle spirit… and was adored by everyone who knew him. His smile was infectious – and his humor and quick wit were legendary! He had a deep passion for the things he loved – whether it be techno music, microbrewery beers or European soccer – even getting fairly radical when Ronaldo took one of his many (and infamous) flops! But it was around his family and closest friends that he felt safest… unconditionally loved… and most at peace.

Chris is survived by his parents (Jack and Susan), his sister, Emily (whom he both adored and admired), his Grandma Kate – and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins, particularly Savannah and Madison. Additionally, he was richly blessed by his many friends – and most especially in his relationship with his longtime girlfriend, Nicole. She was the best medicine he ever had…

His family would like to thank all those who worked valiantly with Chris in his search for peace – Drs. Dan Fisher and Frank Guerra and the wonderful members of the ECT team at the Guerra Fisher Institute, as well as Dr. Richard Oddy. Your genuine love for him and your compassionate care gave us 2 additional years to experience the joy that was Chris. We are forever grateful…

A Celebration of Life service is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 4, at Hyde Chapel at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. In lieu of flowers, please direct any memorials to the family to be used at a later date to honor Chris' loving spirit.
