Hugh E. Bickford

Hugh E. Bickford passed in peace on Oct. 19, 2020, at the age of 73.

He was the loving father of Brenda (Troy) Valdez, Bridget (Corey) Jeffries and Belinda Bickford; proud grandfather of Tyler, Tiffany, Alyssa, Ashley, Trenton, Tavian, Taige, Treve and Journey; brother of Nancy Offman and the late Dawn Bickford, Cheryl Ketron and Allison Felix; and is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Hugh was an Air Force veteran and served in the Vietnam War. He was a proud businessman, avid angler and outdoorsman. He spent many weekends and countless hours on the water. He explored nearly every lake, river and stream in Colorado, New York and Alaska. He will fondly be remembered by family and friends for his warmth, kindness, humor and widely entertaining stories. He was very caring of others and always willing to help anyone in need. He will be greatly missed.
