  • Linda Massey

    Linda Massey, mother of Brian '97, also deceased, and Michael '99, passed away on February 21, 2024.

    "Linda was born in Norman, Oklahoma in 1948 to Geraldine (Jed) and Col. Paul Fisher, Sr. She grew up in a military family, living all over the United States, as well as in Japan and Germany. She graduated from the University of Southern California in 1969 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics. After graduating, she began teaching in high schools, beginning in the Los Angeles area, then moving to Dallas, Texas. Later, Linda went on to pursue a Master’s Degree in Business from Southern Methodist University, and was one of the first women to graduate from the SMU School of Business. Her loving kindness and desire to help others positively affected many lives as she moved through her roles as schoolteacher, and as the first female Landman assisting in the oil and gas negotiations with several tribes for the Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO). One tribe was so thankful for her compassionate work that they made her an honorary tribe member during a beautiful ceremony. During her time with ARCO, she moved to Denver, Colorado, and after leaving the oil industry, she began her favorite job of her life in residential property appraisal. This eventually led to the creation of her own company, which she ran until she retired. Linda developed a competitive spirit in her early teens when she picked up her first tennis racket. Little did she know that tennis would become a major passion in her life. With her graceful form, powerful stroke and strong serve, she went on to compete at a high amateur level. She took great pride in her 4.5 and 5.0 ratings, as she maintained them over the years. While in Dallas, Texas, Linda met the man who would become the love of her life: Stanley Price Massey, Jr. They dated, and when she was transferred to Denver, Stan left his job in Dallas and followed Linda to Denver.  They were married in October 1973. Linda and Stan spent 50+ years together enjoying travel, friends, and the births and lives of their two sons, Brian and Michael." Click here to view the full obituary.

  • Dennis Baumgartner '60

    Dennis Baumgartner '60, brother of Robert '56, also deceased, and father of David '94, John '99 and Andrew '06, passed away on January 8, 2024.

    "Dennis married his beloved wife Joan Patricia (Kukral) Baumgartner on August 2, 1969. He worked as a dentist in a private practice and then in a clinic for the City and County of Denver. He was a dedicated man of faith and prioritized his family. He was an avid sports fan, especially when his children played basketball, softball, volleyball, and tennis and later when his grandkids played football, baseball, and soccer or danced ballet. He enjoyed playing golf, cribbage, backgammon, and shooting pool, which he loved to teach the proper techniques to his children and grandchildren. He was a strong proponent of a balanced diet, which he insisted must always include semisweet chocolate chips and vitamin cocktails. He could always provide the latest commentary on any professional and college football team, including a “pessimistic optimism” for his home team, the Denver Broncos. He found joy in restoring and driving his 1969 Chevelle and always had a pun ready to make you laugh and think." Click here to view the full obituary.
     
    A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, January 29 from 10:00-11:00 am at Church of the Risen Christ.

  • Alfred Rossi '58

    Alfred Rossi '58, brother of Vincent '45, also deceased, and Joseph '52, passed away on January 4, 2024.

    "Al grew up and thrived in north Denver (Welby). He attended Assumption Grade School and Regis Jesuit High School. He played basketball and baseball for Regis and continued to play in college – first attending Colorado College (n/k/a University of Northern Colorado) and moving on to Regis College. After graduating he taught in the Mapleton School District for over 31 years, both with elementary grades and high school grades, obtaining his Master's degree while teaching. Al retired in 1993 and went on to pursue several different endeavors including food brokering, airline work and owning his own mobile auto detailing business. He was an integral part of his wife's business from 2002 through 2019, best remembered for delivering paychecks on his Honda Scooter! Al was most content when spending time with his family. He liked to joke that he had been parenting for all of his adult life and it was not far from the truth. He will be remembered for his grandiose stories of tree people, dinosaurs and whatever he could come up with quickly to share with the kids and grandkids. The last years of his life were filled with pain and discomfort, but he handled it well. He was determined to walk again. Although his disease was part of the Alzheimer's family, his mind was relatively spared. He still knew everyone and could watch (and complain about) football, basketball and his beloved baseball."

    A Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, January 16, 2024 at 10:30 am at Risen Christ Catholic Church. Remembrances in Al's name can be made to the Alzheimer's Association or the charity of your choice.

    We join the prayers of the community of Regis Jesuit with yours for the repose of Al's soul and the consolation of his family and all those who loved him. May he rest in peace.
