Russell William Kuziak

February 15, 1952 - September 24, 2018

 Russell William Kuziak, 66, of Idaho Springs, Colorado passed away in his home on September 24, 2018.  He attended and graduated from Aurora Central High School in 1970.  He attended Colorado State University, Metropolitan State University and Community College of Aurora.  He was self-employed as a plumber, but also worked for several businesses located in Georgetown, Idaho Springs, and the mine north of Empire.  He loved the outdoors, often walking in the woods, viewing wildlife, while contemplating life’s issues.  He loved fishing along Clear Creek (mainly), but also went to the Granby area, Colorado River, Williams Fork Reservoir, and other locations in Colorado and he loved animals and recused dogs and cats from the shelter in Idaho Springs.  He was huge fan of his beloved Denver Broncos.  He loved to write musical lyrics and prose.  He loved singing songs, while playing his guitar, either alone or with his next door neighbor.  He loved his mother, calling her two or three times a day, making sure she was okay.  They discussed anything and everything.

    Russell rescued us from a spring thaw plumbing disaster many years ago. Always think of and appreciate him as we often pass his house. He was a good man.
    My sympathy for your loss.

    I remember fondly Idaho Springs. I’m sure Mr. Kuziak had spiritual thoughts while contemplating Gods handiwork. How much more he will love it in the paradise of God. Isaiah 35:1-7. Beth, fl

    Deepest condolences to the kusiak family and friends for the loss of your loved one Russell. When Jesus Christ was here on Earth during his ministry his friend Lazarus died he cried a few minutes later he brought Lazarus back to life Lazarus had been laid to rest in a tomb for 4 days John 11:11-44.This foreshadowed what Jesus Christ will do very soon he will bring the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.
