Obituary for Richard Charles Mitton

Mitton, Richard 'Dick', age 61, of Littleton passed away Wednesday, March 20 at the age of 61. Father to James (JD), Jessica and Christopher, he is also survived by his wife of 25 years, Laura, his brother Robert of Ridgeway, CO, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Born in Denver to parents Clodagh and Robert Mitton, Dick spent his childhood in South Denver. He attended South High where he graduated in 1969. He briefly attended Arizona State University and graduated from Western State in Colorado in 1976. He embarked on a successful career in banking in Denver beginning in a management training program where he gained experience in a variety of bank departments. He transferred into Information Technology where he worked as a business analyst, and later moved to Miami working for Centrust Bank as a Vice President. After leaving Centrust, he became an independent consultant working for organizations such as IBM and Hogan Systems before he retired. Dick was an avid golfer, loved his boating and diving adventures while living in Florida, and enjoyed gardening and planting. He also loved being a hockey dad, was a zealous Bronco fan and overall sports fanatic. He was very proud of his son JD’s career accomplishments, was thrilled to see his younger son Christopher graduate from the University of Oregon being a “duck”, and one of the best moments in his life was giving his daughter Jessica away at her wedding. Dick managed to accomplish many items on his bucket list including seeing the Balloon Festival in Albuquerque, driving a Porsche Panamera on the autobahn in Germany, and full-filling a lifelong dream to golf at St. Andrews in Scotland. The family would like to give a special thanks to Porter Hospice and the wonderful employees that offered true compassion and caring that honored him and respected the transition that led him away from us. A special thanks to Danielle Andrews who was able to overcome Dick’s ornery nature and was a great source of comfort to him. Memories, stories and sympathies may be shared with the family on this website.

A memorial celebration of his life at the Manor House in the Ken Caryl Valley, 1 Manor House Lane, Littleton, CO 80127. A reception will immediately follow the service.
