John Todd Figi
Aspen, CO Colorado
John Todd Figi of La Jolla, Calif. passed away on Jan. 9 as he awaited a lung transplant.
Subsequently, Figi himself became an organ donor. “Since I have never had children, my greatest accomplishment,” he said, “was starting as a hippie with an idea and building it into one of the largest, most creative and respected gift companies in the country.”
Figi served as chairman of the board of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and was respected for his renowned collection of Latin American art and success as a businessman.
He is survived by his wife, Norma Jean ‘Jake’ Figi; sister, Sara Finkle of Aspen; and brothers, Hans and Eric.
