Raymond George VanBuskirk, Jr., 60, a proud Desert Storm Veteran, passed away unexpectedly as a result of a stroke. He passed peacefully with his family by his side on Jan. 29, 2020.
Raymond leaves behind to cherish his memory his loving parents, Raymond, Sr. and Sherrell VanBuskirk; siblings, Diane and Debra VanBuskirk; and children, Crystle (Jason) Mater, Amber Lynn Hickey, Erica Baruffi, Windy (Chris) Trubee, Joann Segundo and Don (Brittany) Register. Raymond was blessed with 14 grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends.
One of Raymond’s favorite things to do was to spend time at the family cabin in Rye, Colo. and take photos of the wildlife around the cabin, especially when the bears showed up. He enjoyed riding his Harley motorcycle anywhere and everywhere. He also liked spending time in Cripple Creek. He was pretty lucky, too! Sunday was Denver Broncos Day with his two Maltese puppies in his lap he enjoyed all the games.
I know if Raymond was able, he would give a thumbs up to his special friends, Jim Sharp and Clark Williams; and niece, Christine Newell. Christine never stopped by the house without a special something just for uncle Ray. Her last visit she brought him a Denver Broncos poster. Funeral service, 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 10, 2020, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel. Interment, Imperial Memorial Gardens. Online condolences, www.montgomerysteward.com
