Robert Waldman

Bob Waldman

US Army veteran and longtime Denver resident Robert “Bob” Waldman died on August 16, 2022. He was 80. A service was held on August 19 at Rose Hill Cemetery, officiated by Rabbi Rick Rheins. Feldman Mortuary made the arrangements.

Mr. Waldman was born in Cheyenne, Wyo., on March 30, 1942. His family owned several stores in Cheyenne, including Waldman’s Clothing. He attended the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC.

In 1965 Mr. Waldman was drafted into the US Army. He served as a drill sergeant at Fort Knox, Ky., training draftees prior to deployment to Vietnam. Upon his discharge he moved to Denver.

Eventually, Mr. Waldman entered the jewelry business, receiving his certification as a gemologist, and worked at Zales Corp. in northern California. Years later he returned to Denver to work in real estate and property management in the Castle Rock area.

“He jumped into everything with complete abandon,” said Christine Bizarro. “He was rarely ‘noncommittal’ about anything he did. He either loved it or stopped doing it.

“He fundamentally believed he owned the room when he entered it,” his family said, “and that confidence was just a part of who he was.

“But the flip side of that was what made Bob truly special. He embraced change in himself.”
Mr. Waldman is mourned by Christine Bizarro.

Survivors include children Eric (Karen) Waldman, Josh (Andrea) Waldman and Jodi Waldman; and six grandchildren.

Donations may be made to Temple Sinai.
