Dr. Robert Malcolm Stafford
August 27,1931 - November 23, 2021

Dr. Robert Malcolm Stafford, 90, passed away on November 23, 2021. Bob was known to so many in the community as a great husband, doctor, mentor, cyclist, climber, and friend, but he was best known as “Dad or Baboo” by his family who loved him to the moon and back.
Bob had a distinguished career as a medical doctor specializing in Internal Medicine. He came to Colorado Springs in 1961, where he served as a doctor in the Army. He soon opened his medical practice, Associates in Internal Medicine, where he made a difference in so many people’s lives over his career spanning over four decades. Bob also served as the medical director of Namaste Alzheimer Center and Pikes Peak Hospice where he respectfully helped so many people during their late stages of life. He retired from his career in 2004.

Bob was an outdoor enthusiast his whole life. In 1970 Bob became the 52nd member of the AdAmAn Club and actively climbed through 2003. Bob also accomplished the feat of climbing all 54 of Colorado’s 14ers, the volcanoes in Mexico, Mt. Kilimanjaro, and the base camp of Mt. Everest. Bob loved bicycling as much as climbing. He shared his love and respect for the outdoors with his kids and their families and numerous friends. He spent decades taking his family on climbing or bicycling trips throughout Colorado, the country, and even across the world. Bob was always happiest climbing in the mountains or pedaling his road bike.

Bob and his wife, Sue (deceased in 2017,) poured all their love into their family. Bob is survived by his children: Rob (and Nora) Stafford, Carolyn (and Mike) Boggs, Liz Stafford-Mitchell (and Bill Mitchell Jr.), Tim Stafford, and Phil (and Joyce) Stafford; his grandchildren: Valerie Brown, Robert (and Jess) Stafford, Alli (and Brett) Weum, Chloe (and Corey) Woods, Garhett (and Cassie) Stafford, Philip Stafford, Ben Boggs, Levi Stafford, Sarah Stafford, Letti Stafford, and Nate Stafford; and his great-grandson: Nash Stafford.

There will be a Celebration of Life on December 19th, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at The Colorado Springs Marriott, 5580 Tech Center Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80919.

In lieu of flowers, a donation in Bob’s name to the AdAmAn Club, or a local Hospice or Alzheimer’s organization of your choice would be greatly appreciated.

As the “Best Dad Ever” and wonderful family man, doctor, and friend, Bob will be missed dearly by those who loved him.
