In memory of
Arthur Ventura
Arthur Ventura, 79, unexpectedly passed away on Monday, July 9th. He was a gentle, kind soul whose deep faith in Jesus Christ provides comfort to the loved ones he leaves behind.

Art graduated from Scottsbluff High School in May of 1958. He worked most of his life as an electrician.

From this union, he had two sons: Len Ventura (Longmont) and Darren Ventura (Broomfield). They divorced in March, 1968. In 1982 he met Zona Ghost Bird. They married in 1983 and shared over thirty two years of marriage before Zona preceded him in death in 2015. Art was a devout Catholic, spending quite a bit of time at his church, Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Parish. He enjoyed any and all things related to the Denver Broncos, and watching his children and grandchildren at their sporting events. Art also had a fondness for old Western movies, and long visits with dear friends and family.
