Stephen Horowitz, 66, died June 21, 2011, in Ketchum, Idaho.
Steve worked at Aspen Highlands, in restaurants and made stained-glass windows, some of which are around town today.
He helped convert the Durant “Barn” into living spaces, where he set up his stained-glass studio and was host to many parties there. Steve was interested to benefit working people and founded Aspen’s first food cooperative. He produced the first annual Hot Dog Film Festival which featured many young, amateur greats of Aspen; and he was an early contributor to GrassRoots TV, producing a film history of Aspen’s mining days.
In the summer of 2009, Steve was diagnosed with cancer, yet refused to let it dominate his life. Many remembered how he helped others with cancer, more concerned for them than himself, and inspired friends and family with his honesty and thriving capacity to love.
Steve is survived by his wife, Lisa; children Jamiel, Grace, Jack and Kate; mother Mildred; sister Satsimran; brother Martin; two nephews and a niece, Jonah and Yuri, and Maria Piessis; and granddaughters Hannah and Hope.
