    There are no words to describe the heartbreak I feel over the loss of Uncle Ron. He was an incredible man, Uncle and brother. There are not many people like him and he will be dearly missed. The love for his family is to be recognized and praised. My sincere condolences.

    I think I can say, without fear of contradiction, that Ron Acosta left a lasting impression on everyone who ever had the pleasure of working with him. Ron was truly one of a kind and will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.

    Our sincere condolence to Alice and her family and to all the Acosta family and friinds. He had many. And I am proud that I was one of them.

    Dear, Ron when I was sent to work on your shift I felt that there was no hope of finding someone who was honest and had integrity working at the Water Department. After working about three weeks on your shift, I found out that I was wrong, I had not only found an honest man with integrity but one with the Roar of a Loin and a heart of true gold. You will be deeply missed but never forgotten, god bless you and your family.

    We had the priviledge of knowning Ron for more than 35 years. He was truly a gift from God for many families.. Good boss, neighbor and we at the Denver Water Dept. had a saying about Ron “he was firm but always fair”. He will truly be missed.

    I met Ron within a year or so of meeting Eleanor, Ron’s sister, and Annette, Ron’s niece. This means I’ve known Ron for over 30 years -before grandchildren and great grandchildren. Hard worker, loving husband and father, prestine yard and, simply put, a lovely, honorable man. It has been my privilege to know him and his family. He lives on in every life he touched. Judy

    He was a great man, but he was the BEST GRANDFATHER ever!!! The lessons my grandpa taught me and the precious memories will be with me forever. I have never known such heartache in my whole life, but then I look outside and I see my grandpa everywhere. He’s is the green grass that he planted and in the blossoms of the trees in front of my house that he placed there with care. I can hear his laugh when I see his great grandchildren smile. There is not much that does not remind me of my grandpa. He instilled a good work ethic and taught us the importance of education. He shared many once in a lifetime.

At the age of 10, Ron would go out and work shining shoes and collecting bottles to help support his family. Growing up, he later worked as a gas station attendant and as a cook a the Brown Palace Hotel. He later met and married his loving wife Alice Acosta, a marriage that lasted over 52 loving years. The majority of Ron’s career (43 years), was spent with both the Denver Water Department and Bonsai Nursery (over 40 years). Ron was also President and owner of Acosta Properties, where he was known as “The Mayor of Globeville.” He enjoyed maintaining his homes. This strong work ethic is what kept Ron happy, knowing and ensuring his family was well taken care of. In his spare time he enjoyed fishing, camping, and hunting. Spending time with his family was most important. He loved the time and the friendship he had with Dick Luna. He so looked forward to seeing him and spending time camping and fishing at Dick’s cabin in Steamboat Springs. He enjoyed the friendship he had with Ron and Linda Malik (Bonsai Nursery). The time he spent working and the relationships he developed with Ron and Linda were very special to him.
