Edward William Neubaum, D.D.S., 77, passed away June 23, 2018 at Parkview Medical Center in Pueblo, Colorado from pulmonary fibrosis. Edward was born to Erhart W. Neubaum and Lorene F. (Goedert) Neubaum on March 27, 1941, in Carroll, Iowa.
He completed his degree in dentistry before serving as an officer in the U.S. Navy from 1966 to 1968. A love of the outdoors and mountains brought him to live in Colorado in 1968. Edward returned to graduate school to earn an M.S. in pediatric dentistry, specializing in treatment of children and the mentally challenged. He served the community of Southern Colorado in this capacity for over 30 years. Unique in so many ways, Edward pursued his passions of trains, buttonbox accordions, antique trucks, old Farmall tractors, photography, and cowboys throughout his life. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Beverley (Berning) Neubaum; children, Deborah (Anthony) Neubaum Garrity Scott, Michael Neubaum, Nicholas (Kristen) Neubaum, Daniel (Melissa) Neubaum; grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Megan, Lauren, Everett, and Finley Neubaum, and step-grandchildren Aaron and Sigourney Scott.
