Denver native Barry Weinstock passed away May 10, 2022, in Oro Valley, Ariz. He was 75. No service was planned.

Mr. Weinstock was born on January 7, 1947. He was a student at

George Washington High School, and attended CU Boulder on a gymnastics scholarship. He transferred to CSU to play lacrosse.

Professionally, Mr. Weinstock owned several bars and restaurants around the country, including The Limelight Lounge in Denver and The Plum Saloon in Silver Plume.

Mr. Weinstock’s wife of 41 years, Miriam Wurzel-Weinstock, said her husband “led an adventurous live, and shared that with his family.

“Barry was giving, honest, kind and compassionate. He would give the shirt off his back and literally stopped to help anyone when others wouldn’t.”

Mrs. Wurzel-Weinstock also said it was Barry’s goal to “try every kind of job.” Mr. Weinstock spent time driving an oil tanker, a construction gopher and a banquet waiter.

In 1991, the couple moved from Den- ver to Hugo, Colo., and later lived in Tucson, New Mexico and Oro Valley.

Survivors include Mr. Weinstock’s wife Miriam Wurzel-Weinstock; sisters Honey Goldberg and Robyn Hamon; children Makara (Joshua) Conn, Samuel (Rachel) Weinstock; and four grandchildren.
