News obituaries are written by the staff of The Denver Post editorial departments. The Denver Post publishs news stories about the deaths of individuals from all walks of life. People who have made significant contributions to the community through their work or civic involvement are a priority, but the editorial departments also will consider those who have simply made a difference in the lives of their loved ones. Because of the volume of such requests, the editorial departments cannot guarantee publication of a news obituary.

• For consideration of a news obituary, call 303-954-1201 (Denver Post) or fax information for a new obituary to: 303-954-1369 (Denver Post).

• Paid notices will appear in the daily Denver & the West section of The Denver Post.
