Remembering Van Kistler

 

We have learned that Van Kistler, P.E., who served as president of the state chapter of NSPE has passed.  He earned his Professional Engineer license in 1977, the same year he joined NSPE.  He worked at Mounatin Bell/Qwest until his retirement.  You can click here for a detailed obituary.  

Our thoughts are with Van's family and many friends. We thank him for his service to the profession and to NSPE.

Van earned his Professional Engineering License and was employed at Mountain Bell Telephone/Quest Communications until his retirement. He then worked as an engineering consultant and taught at the University of Denver and Metropolitan State University of Denver. He was a life member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), served as president of the Professional Engineers of Colorado, was a member of Telephone Pioneers, and belonged to the Masons and Shriners. - See more at: http://www.horancares.com/obituary/Van-Thomas-Kistler/Lakewood-CO/1581304#sthash.QPBlgFAQ.dpuf

Former NSPE-CO State President (2013-14) Charlie Rossman is retiring from Engineering and moving home to Georgia. 

He shares some parting thoughts:

 

To: NSPE-CO Members and Leaders

Farewell to each and all of you, my friends.  Rhonwyn and I will relocate this month to Georgia, our home state. 

It has been my pleasure and an honor to have known and served with many of you over the past decade.  Thank you for allowing me to help uphold our noble calling.  

I believe the engineering profession is Divinely assigned.  Much as a pastor communicates how God would have us serve Him and each other, the engineer reveals how humanity can best relate to and apply physical laws ordained long before Archimedes, Newton, Einstein and the others began to struggle with interpreting them.

So stay the course.  I wish you all the best.

Charlie Rossman, PE

Charter President, NSPE-CO Central Chapter and Past President, NSPE-CO

Thank you Charlie from NSPE-CO for your years of dedicated service and insight.
