- July 19, 2021
John Carl Ramunno of Eagle lost his short fight with cancer on Saturday, July 17, 2021, at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Greeley. He was 64.
John was born on January 4, 1957, in Steamboat Springs. His parents, Carl “Big C” and Marilyn Ramunno, were fixtures in the community and were active in their church. He was drawn to follow in the footsteps of his parents because of the impact they had on the lives of so many young people as teachers and coaches.
John was an outstanding high school athlete — participating in football, track and field, and wrestling for his dad — a hall-of-fame wrestling coach. He was a proud Steamboat Sailor. John graduated from Western State College in Gunnison, where he wrestled and played football and supported and followed his Mountaineers to the very end.
