Richard Gallant

June 25th, 1957 - January 30th, 2020

Obituary Richard �Ricky� Gallant, age 62, passed away quietly on January 30, 2020 at home in Gold Hill, CO. He was born on June 25, 1957 in New Jersey, on the wedding anniversary of his parents Richard James Gallant and Elizabeth Clara Shive. He was a graduate of Colorado State University with a degree in Physics. Ricky worked as a Senior Optical Engineer for Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc. in Longmont, CO. He could be seen strolling around the mountain working out some intricate mathematical equation for a project he was working on, determined to discover the answer. An avid music lover, he was often seen with his beloved Taylor guitar playing a Dylan or Garcia song and almost always wearing what close family called, his Bobby Weir shorts. He loved the mountains, sunny skies and long walks. He is survived by his brother, Capt. Rex Gallant; his sister�s Randibeth Gallant (who he affectionately called Rudi); Robin Bogdanski; Roxanne Seigel; brothers-in-law and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Preceded in his passing was Ronald Gallant, a brother. Family and friends whose lives were touched by Ricky can leave messages on his tribute page at: BlueMountainMortuary.com. A memorial celebration will take place this spring/summer at Gold Hill Inn, Boulder, CO.

Rick was one of my three younger brothers. Growing up with him was so much fun. He was sensitive and intellectually stimulating as we grew older. We often shared different points of view but I like to believe we learned from one another. I wish I had seen him more after he moved to Colorado, but in our communications it was clear being out there suited him as he loved the outdoors and mountains. He loved his music and as soon as he picked up a guitar so many years ago I could see immediately it would be his solace in life. I will miss being able to talk to him, but I know he is out there in the mountains somewhere singing with the forest creatures.
