Thank you for notifying Colorado School of Mines regarding the passing of one of our alumni. Mines Magazine prints memorials to recently deceased alumni quarterly.

To publish an obituary in Mines Magazine, we require the following:

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

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


We will mail you a copy of the issue in which the obituary will be printed.
Please note: Remembrances in Mines Magazine focus on an individual’s connections to Mines, 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 [email protected]

Memorial gifts to Colorado School of Mines Foundation are a meaningful way to honor the legacy of friends and colleagues while communicating your support to survivors. For more information, call 303-273-3275 or visit
