Our beloved Ian Hause passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of July 21 at the age of 54 while among friends in Colorado Springs pursuing a course in personal growth.
He was born in Santa Barbara, California on June 24, 1965 and spent most of his life in Carbondale where he will always be remembered as a funny, kind, generous, intelligent and loyal friend. Ian had a great passion for fly fishing, skiing, music and his work. He leaves his legacy through various land development projects and his commitment to preserving the natural beauty in the Roaring Fork valley he called home.
During his last year his love for the beauty of mountains and rivers exploded. His enthusiasm and energy was boundless. He loved his family and his many friends.
