Michael Rambeau June 12, 1944 – June 20, 2019 Share this obituary Send Sympathy Gifts Sign Guestbook| Send Sympathy Card Michael Rambeau, Mr. “Rock-n Roll,” was born June 12, 1944, to Ruth and Harold Rambeau in Oak Park, Illinois. Michael crossed the finish line of life, receiving his checkered flag on June 20, 2019. Raised in Forest Park, Mike did well in school, excelled at and enjoyed playing basketball as one of the team’s star players. In his teens, he worked in a neighborhood grocery store, Calcagno’s, for several years which kept him busy and taught him his incredible work ethic. His parents would vacation in Estes Park, which would eventually become a dream come true for Mike and his family. Mike moved his family to Estes Park in 1975 after a tragic fire burned the truck and truck yard where he was a professional driver. The fire left him unemployed, but free to follow his dream of living in Estes Park where he and his first wife, Diane, bought a liquor store. They owned Mike’s Rocky Mountain Discount Liquor for 10 years. When not at the store, he loved to restore old cars. He brought a ‘55 Chevy, a ‘57 Chevy, a ‘50 Ford and a ‘61 Impala back to life. You could find Mike at a race track on weekends or whenever possible, as close to the dirt, dust, and noise as he could get. He loved sharing his race car stories with all who would listen. For Mike, a fast car was the best car. Mike also managed several RV campgrounds, his favorite being in Dolores, Colorado at Priest Gulch Campground where he made many lifelong friends who share his love of the outdoors and exploring every inch of it. One of his favorite places to sit was at Trout Lake, just enjoying the beauty and the quiet. He enjoyed an awesome 15 years driving tour buses at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. He loved chatting with travelers who made a friend by the time they stepped off his bus. He always had a joke or a fun story to tell and loved sharing his quick wit and humor, with a laugh you’d never forget. Mike’s passions included “Chasin Racin,” NASCAR, NHRA, car shows and any type of short track racing. He enjoyed listening to all types of music, but was hopelessly “Lost in the 50s.” A favorite daily chore of his was spending time outside cleaning and detailing his cars. Mike was preceded in death by his parents, younger brother Scott and son-in-law, Nicholas Kane. He is survived by his wife Celeste of Saint George, Utah, daughter Kim Kane, son Matt (Cristie), daughter Michele York (Wayne) all of Estes Park. He is survived by his grandchildren; Alyssa Kane, Brad Kane, Laeticia Rambeau, Maddy Rambeau, Gunnar Lordemann, Luke Lordemann, and one great-grandson, Preston Kane. He is also survived by three stepchildren; Stephen Cox, Chris Cox, and Tiffany Pagone along with eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Mike will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.
