Obituary for Russell Bishop

Russell Bishop (75) of Denver, CO passed away with family by his side at The Denver Hospice on Sunday January 7, 2018. He was born Wednesday May 27, 1942 to the late Amos and Helen Bishop in Stamps Arkansas. He leaves behind his wife of 46 years, Evelyn M. Bishop.
Russell was a graduate of Manual High School and retired from IBM as a computer Engineer. He was a die-hard Denver Broncos fan who had an extensive memorabilia collection. He had a particular love for luxury cars, especially corvettes. Russell had an appreciation for a variety of music from the Delfonics and The Beatles to Outkast and Busta Rhymes. He was an adventurous soul – he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and car racing.
Russell and Evelyn had eight children, six daughters; Carla Bishop, Kristi (Verdell) Bishop, Terri Bishop, Tracy (Michael) Bishop, Kim Bishop, Wilhelamina (Jermaine) Tunson, Shannon Bishop and one son David Bishop, all residing in Denver Colorado. They have eight beautiful Grandchildren Tiehlor (Shontel) Meredith, Wesley (Tabitha) Brown, Troi Vaughns, Ayana (Tim) Jones, Kohle Smith, Paurteyee Smith, Mykah Brown, and Summer Passarelli. They have six great Grand Children Diego, Teddi, Kai, Alayah, Peyton and Reign.
Russell is survived by siblings Jerry Bishop and Roslyn (Ricky) Swinton and a host of many uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, and loyal friends.
When the sun rose for Russell on May 27, 1942, the angels sang in all their glory. When the sun set for Russell the Angels still sang to fill all our hearts with the fond memories and much love evermore.
