Curtis Robert Risch May 29th, 1952 — October 16th, 2019 The family of Curtis R. Risch would like to inform you of his sudden and unexpected passing from severe heart disease at his apartment in Boulder, Colorado. He is survived by his father, Robert Risch, currently living at Life Care Center in Longmont; his sister, Nancy Strohm of Tacoma, WA; and his aunt and uncle, Loren & Lynette Johnson of Estes Park. Many others loved and knew him as an uncle, nephew, cousin, coworker, and church family. Persevering through the obstacles of his autism, he was a graduate of Mile High High School in Denver and he celebrated 32 years of steady employment at Wells Fargo Bank on Pearl St. in Boulder. For 30 of those years he faithfully operated the coin-sorting machine in the bank vault and knew the machine so well he could troubleshoot for himself when problems arose. His loved ones will also remember him by his affinity for following sports, particularly the Colorado Rockies, his enjoyment of hiking and playing games, and his brilliance for numbers. For 41 years it was his custom to spend the weekend in Estes Park with his family and attend church there. For most of those years he was a regular Friday-evening-Sunday-noon customer at Poppy’s Pizza and Grill. A celebration to honor Curt's life and home-going will be held at Estes Park Baptist Church on November 1st, 2019 at 1:00pm.

Curtis is someone I spent a significant portion of time with since ive been at wells fargo. the last 2 years ive mainly been the foreign currency teller at wells fargo and sat directly in font of Curtis.

we would always talk about baseball and the broncos, but one day I discovered that he was incredibly talent at doing math in his head. we would throw any problem at him and he would solve it in no time.

we joked with Curtis and he would laugh, it was an infectious laugh. im sad he's gone but I will always remember him fondly. the bank is not the same without him.

I worked with Curt for over a year and a half, I sat near his desk so I'd always hear our coworkers cracking jokes with Curtis, he always thought they were so funny!
We'd always joke about Curtis being the CEO of Wells, or him being the owner of the Rockies :P
Sometimes we'd ask him what 257 x 178 or something super random like that, and he'd always get the answer correct :) Same with spelling super long complicated words. He was correct 100% of the time, I don't think I remember a time when he got the answer wrong...

It was a pleasure working and getting to know Curtis...he had such a sweet heart, he will be missed.
