Stefan Friedrich Zedlacher

Stefan Friedrich Zedlacher, loving husband, son, and brother, died in Richmond, Va. on Easter Sunday after a long and exceptionally courageous battle with cancer.

Born and raised in Aspen, Colo., Stefan exemplified carpe diem! He loved his life of adventure in the mountains, whether it was skiing, hiking, golf or fishing. But most of all, Stefan loved his family and friends. His goal was always to put everyone else’s happiness first, which he often did through his gift of humor.

Stefan graduated summa cum laude from Lynchburg College, where he met his true love, his wife Cassie. Stefan is survived by his wife, Cassie Virginia Zedlacher of Richmond, Va.; his parents, Franz and Susan Zedlacher of Snowmass Village, Colo.; brother Franz Peter Zedlacher of Snowmass Village; grandfather Dr. David Stephenson of Denver; loving aunts, uncles and cousins from Colorado, Canada and Europe, as well as countless friends. His grandmother, Barbara Louise Stephenson of Denver, preceded Stefan in death.

Memorial services and a celebration of a life well lived will be held at the Aspen Chapel on Saturday, April 21 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to the Stefan Zedlacher Memorial Fund through the Aspen Chapel.
