InfoU.S. Attorney for Colorado: 1958 - 59.

Robert Shanklin Wham, beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, was born January 18, 1926 in Centralia, Illinois, the son of Nina and Judge Fred L. Wham. On January 26, 1947 he married his high school sweetheart, Dorothy Stonecipher. After he graduated from the University of Illinois law school, Bob and Dottie moved to Colorado, the state he had fallen in love with as a boy on family vacations. There, on the western slope, he joined a law firm in Montrose, Colorado. Bob moved to Denver in 1953, when he joined the Attorney General’s staff. He served as Assistant U.S. District Attorney 1955-1960, as Deputy City Attorney in Denver 1960-61, and he became City Attorney under Mayor Batterton in 1962-63. He left the City Attorney’s office to go into private practice with Joe Shoemaker in 1964. He was elected to the Colorado State Senate in 1976 and served one term. He continued to practice law until 2009.

Bob loved the mountains. He enjoyed skiing, sailing, hiking, driving and spending time with his family at his second home, in Summit County.
