Submit An Obituary

Thank you for notifying the Colorado School of Mines Alumni Association regarding the passing of one of our alumni. Please click here to submit an obituary.

It is our privilege and honor to print highlights of each alumnus’/alumna’s life in Mines magazine, which is published four times per year. In order for us to publish a memorial in the magazine, we require the following materials:

  • Newspaper or funeral home obituary, or typed obituary from family
  • A recent high-resolution, digital photograph (preferably a headshot)

For print photos, please scan a copy and submit the digital file to us using the online form. All published obituaries require a digital photo.

Please note: Remembrances in Mines magazine focus on an individual’s connections to the school, as well as key events and accomplishments. We aim to keep a balance between these important points and obituary length in order to honor as many deceased alumni as possible. For this reason, we no longer include lists of survivors in obituaries published in Mines magazine. Submitted obituaries will be edited to conform with the magazine’s length and style standards.

Questions regarding the online form or this process? Please contact us at 303.273.3959 or aspurgeon@mines.edu.
