Obituary for Arthur Thomas "Art" Biddle

Arthur Thomas Biddle (1939-2018)

Arthur T. Biddle (Art) passed unexpectedly and peacefully in his sleep Sunday, May 6th, 2018 and began his eternal journey with our Heavenly Father. He was 78.

Art, son of Vern Arthur Biddle and Alice Kathryn Biddle, was born Oct. 29th, 1939 in Denver, CO. His family moved to Glenwood Springs, CO when he was in the 3rd grade. He graduated from Glenwood Springs High School with Honors, Colorado School of Mines in Metallurgical Engineering in 1961 and the University of Colorado Law School in 1968.

Art was a Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity brother during his 4 year collegiate career at the Colorado School of Mines and maintained active involvement with his fraternity brothers during the construction of the new fraternity house and throughout the rest of his life. He served as chapter counselor for Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity and was a board member for the fraternity for many years. He served as the Colorado School of Mines Alumni Association President in 2004.

He served in the United States Army 9th Corps of Engineers from 1963 to 1965 stationed primarily in Germany and maintained active friendships with many of his Army buddies and their families throughout the rest of his life during Army reunions throughout the United States.

Art met the love of his life, Carroll Sue Sherman, in 1968 while clerking for a federal judge in the 10th circuit federal court system and began his journey as a dedicated family man. He and Carroll were married in 1969 and had many adventures including raising two sons, David and Mark. Art was very dedicated to his sons and actively shared experiences which included many Y Indian Guides, scouting, camping, golfing, deer, antelope and quail hunting trips, fishing and sporting adventures. Art and Carroll continued their passion for exploring the world on tours of Europe, Israel, New Zealand, Australia, South America and North America over the past 20 years.

Art served his family as a photographer and historian and joyfully documented and shared the memories of many Biddle and Sherman family gatherings and adventures. Art was full of life and spent much of his time helping people. He often would strike up a conversation and found common ground to connect with people with his gentle and genuine spirit. He was an accomplished athlete in his younger years playing high school and collegiate football, track, basketball, baseball, softball, bowling and golf and was a dedicated sports fan loyal to the Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets, Buffs and CSM Orediggers throughout his life.

In his corporate life, Art managed environmental, legal and public affairs and worked on challenging mining projects for AMAX. He served as a senior construction attorney for the City of Denver during the construction of Denver International Airport. After retiring, Art was an Executive Director with Conciliation Ministries of Colorado.

Art belonged to Cherry Hills Community Church for 32 years where he participated in Men’s Ministries which included a mission trip to Juarez, Mexico where he helped construct homes and churches for indigent families.

Art made so many amazing friends and will always be remembered for his positive outlook; gentle, kind and strong spirit; patience; virtue; love for life; dedication to his family; integrity; great attitude; dedication and discipleship to God; fortitude; perseverance; generosity and loving heart for all of his family and friends. Art’s good natured soul touched many lives and he will be missed always and celebrated often.

Art was the husband to his wife and soulmate Carroll, Father to David and Mark, Father-in-law to Jessica and Justyne, Grandfather to Beau 4 and Rowyn 14, and Big Brother to Nancy Giles of Grand Junction. Art also leaves behind so many other family members and friends whom were blessed to know and share their lives and carry on memories of him.
