Donald Warren Bish

February 9, 1947 - January 20, 2018

Donald Warren Bish passed away on January 20, 2018. He was a resident of Evergreen for 40 enjoyable years. He loved the mountains and living in his Evergreen home. A family mountain cabin was a joy to him too.

Don was born February 9, 1947, in Wichita, Kansas, to Vivian and Cleo Bish. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Carol; his son Zachary and daughter-in-law Karen of Littleton, Colorado. His sister Janice and brother-in-law Charles reside in Owasso, Oklahoma, along with his niece Tricia and other family members. Two other nieces, Deanna and Linda reside in Onega, Kansas.

Don spent many years working for Lewan and Associates in Denver, and later, traveling nationally for Panasonic Corporation as a technical support specialist.

He had numerous hobbies and loved to tinker. His artistic ability showed thru many times when he built his cigar box guitars, fountains, and numerous metal work and sculptures for our home.

He loved to travel, especially in Europe. The last eight years we were able to do so each year. In 2017, he spent six weeks in Italy with Carol, Zack, and Karen. We are grateful for that memory and time together.

Don had a kind heart and enjoyed helping people. He was described by a neighbor as a light in the neighborhood and one if the most positive people he knew. He was a wonderful husband and a cherished father. We love him so much, and his memory will be with us forever.
