Denver Jewry’s weekend of wonders

Visual sparkle and human delight flowed through our community last weekend. We scampered from event to event, Saturday night to Sunday night, and it was still impossible to cover them all. We mention just three highlights.

Walt Imhoff 1931-2014

Walt Imhoff knew to listen to another human heart and give of himself in kind. First, he was extraordinarily successful and philanthropic. You would regularly see him smiling from the society pages with his beloved wife Georgia at his side. After her death in 2009, the smile faded. He prevailed but never recovered. When Walt Imhoff died suddenly on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at age 82, the Lion of 17th Street left an enormous hole in our hearts. Born in Denver on Aug. 7, 1931, Mr. Imhoff earned a BS in ...
