      OBITUARIES & MEMORIALS

      Denver Post, The (CO) - Sunday, January 27, 2008
      M.D. Born on February 1, 1921 in Rock River, Wyoming. Died on December 5, 2007 in Denver, Colorado. Raised in Laramie, Wyoming, he attended the Laramie Public Schools and graduated from the University of Wyoming in 1942, receiving his diploma in one hand and his orders to serve in World War II in the other. An aerial reconnaissance photographer during the war, he fought in northern France, Belgium, and Germany, and was among the American liberators of the Buchenwald Concentration Camp. His photographs of that terrible place were donated to the Holocaust Museum in New York. He graduated from Medical School at the University of Rochester in 1950 and performed internship and residency at Vanderbilt University and the University of Colorado. By 1956, he was appointed to the faculty of Internal Medicine at the University of Colorado Medical School, where he served until his retirement. He was the founding Chairman of the Department of Family Practice at the Medical School and also served as the official physician to the Colorado State Hospitals, as the Director of the Medical School's Rural Preceptorships in Colorado, and as co-founder of the Retired Faculty Association. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Ellen Sackett Brettell, their four children, seven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. His family requests that, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to the University of Colorado Foundation, General Internal Medicine, 225 East 16th Avenue, Suite 900, Denver Colorado, 80203. A memorial service will be held at the Fairmount Ivy Chapel, 430 South Quebec Street, Denver at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, February 2, 2008, the day following what would have been his 87th birthday.
