The Starbuck neighborhood of Castle Pines Village recently lost a dear friend and neighbor, Frank Nuebel. Highly regarded by all, Frank was only 55 years old when he lost his courageous battle with cancer. He was a local resident for more than 25 years and he leaves behind his wife of 24 years Rowena and his 22-year-old son Andrew.
Frank was an accomplished artist, something of a family trait, following in his mother's footsteps. He enjoyed croquet in his early years, winning many trophies at the Denver Croquet Club. Frank was very generous and his kindness was infectious. Friends remember how he used to approach homeless individuals and others in need and give them his signature two dollar bill – a tradition his brother Ron has an interest in carrying on.
Frank worked for MCI before he started his own real estate company. He was a member of the Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch, and Frank was well-known for his ability to make friends easily, his great sense of humor, dry wit and laughter.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on January 8 at Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch, followed by a celebration of his well-lived life. Frank’s final resting place will be the Memorial Garden at Cherry Hills. In lieu of flowers, the family has established the "Franklin Daniel Nuebel Memorial Fund" at Wells Fargo Bank, which will participate in Heifer International, Brent’s Place, and the Crisis Center in Castle Rock on Frank’s behalf.
