The Isidor Hauser Sign (Aspen Mountain)

There is a sign in memory of Isidore Hauser at the bar in the Sundeck on Aspen Mountain.  Photos of it, taken in July 2017, are below.  The sign says:  Izzie  "Simply Fantastic"  1957 - 2014.  According to his obituary in the Aspen Times (, "Isidor was one of Aspen's most vivacious characters who lived life to its fullest.  When you asked Isidor how he was doing, his reply was "Simply Fantastic!" with his strong Swiss accent and smiling face."  Also, see this page on this web site for the framed obituary for him that is in Bonnie's:
