Louis Molliconi Jr.

November 17, 1930 — January 31, 2023

Westminster, Colorado

Louis Molliconi, Jr, aged 92, died in his home in Westminster, Colorado on January 31, 2023. He was born in 1930 to Josephine and Louis Molliconi, Sr. in Denver, Colorado – the second of six boys. He grew up in North Denver and attended and graduated from Manual High School.

Lou enlisted in the US Navy shortly after graduation; he loved the Navy and was proud to be of service to his country. He served aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Princeton in the Korean War where one of his duties was arming the aircraft with their ammunition for battle.

While Lou was in the service, his younger brother Paul married Loretta Rosenbach; they moved into the basement apartment of Loretta’s parents’ home (Aleck and Katherine Rosenbach).  After leaving the Navy, Louis would come by the Rosenbach home to visit his brother Paul, and it was there that he met his future wife, Carol Ann Rosenbach, Loretta’s younger sister. In 1955 Louis married Carol and they started their life together in the northern suburbs of Denver, raising five children. In addition to his family, Louis loved flying and for several years owned a small Cessna airplane and flew as often as he could. Louis enjoyed trout fishing and spending time with his family. He had the best sense of humor and was one of the smartest men we have ever known, he was especially knowledgeable about history, flight and aircraft.

Lou worked for most of his career for Phil Anschutz at The Anschutz Corp in the oil and gas business and made many dear friends there.

In addition to Carol, Louis is survived by daughters Sandy Molliconi (Dale Frey), Terri Molliconi-Roush (Greg Roush), sons Jeff Molliconi, Vince Molliconi (Ty Armstrong-Molliconi) and Dan Molliconi (Mary Molliconi). He was very close to and adored his grandchildren, Kim Butler-Schultz (Eric Schultz), Jeffrey Adam Molliconi (dec.), Danny Roush (Lisa Rosa-Roush), Tara Butler, Kelly Roush-Maness (Chris Maness) Taylor Molliconi (Steven Sumey) and Jacob Molliconi. Lou was blessed with five great-grandchildren, Ella and Lillian Roush, Rylan and Kylie Maness and Mason Wooten.

Louis’ brothers Paul (Francie) and Joseph Molliconi survived him; Angelo, Bernie and Carl preceded him in passing. Louis loved his sisters-in-law Kathy Rosenbach-Banister (dec) (Don Banister) Loretta Rosenbach-Molliconi (Dec), Elaine Rosenbach-Merkert (John Merkert), Loretta Molliconi (Angelo), Mary Molliconi (Carl) and Francie Long Molliconi (Paul)  He loved his numerous nieces and nephews as well.

Louis lived a long, full life and he will be greatly missed by his family that loved him so dearly.
