Mydans, Robert Esty, age 64, died unexpectedly while snowshoeing with his wife in Rocky Mountain National Park near Grand Lake, CO on Saturday February 18th.

Bob was born on January 18th, 1948 in Boston MA. He is survived by his wife Judy, son Daniel, daughter Lindsay Dunsmore and her husband Dryden, and his brother David.

Bob married Judy on June 25, 1972 in New York, City and was happily married for nearly 40 years. His love of the outdoors was a guiding principal in his entire life. From a very early age he climbed mountains, skied, and organized camping trips for kids. He loved to travel and visited every continent except Antarctica.

Bob was an Asst. U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado for the past 20 years, and Senior Litigation Counsel for the last several years. He began his career as Asst. District Attorney in Boston and transferred to the MA State Attorney General's Office. In 1980, he joined the Department of Justice Organized Crime Strike Force in Kansas City.

He then became Asst. U.S. Attorney in Oklahoma City and was subsequently appointed Interim U.S. Attorney and Criminal Chief. Bob was an expert prosecutor overseeing complex investigations in white collar crime, organized crime, and drug conspiracies. Over the last several years, Bob worked with the Department of Justice's Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training program where he provided, guidance, training, and authored laws for developing countries. He was an expert on identity theft and fraud, and spoke around the world on behalf of credit unions.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Bob seized every opportunity to live life to the fullest; nothing meant more to him than family and friends. Warmth, kindness and generosity defined his life; he will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

A Memorial Service will be held to celebrate Bob's life on Saturday February 25th at 1pm at the Horan and McConaty Funeral Home located at 5303 E County Line Rd, Centennial, CO 80122. Donations may be made to The Mydans Memorial Fund through the Rocky Mountain Nature Association or P.O. Box 3100 Estes Park, CO 80517. All contributions will be donated to back country search and rescue and trail maintenance. Published in Denver Post on February 23, 2012
