Stephen Arnold “Buzzy”; Ware, of Alhambra, Calif., died Sunday, Sept. 3, 2006, in San Gabriel, Calif., of natural causes. He was 63. The son of Arnold G. Ware and Freda Cowperthwaite Ware, he was born Jan. 29, 1943, in Santa Maria, Calif. He married Pamela Craven Ware in 1975 in Aspen. Mr. Ware lived in Boulder County from 1964 to 1969 and from 1980 to 1985. He earned a bachelors degree from the University of Colorado in 1964 and a law degree from the University of Southern California in 1968. He then operated a law practice in Aspen. A motorcycle accident in 1977 on the shale bluffs of Aspen left his wife dead and Mr. Ware severely injured. Mr. Ware lived and practiced law in Denver and Boulder for several years before returning to Southern California to retire where he did pro-bono work, wrote novels and continued his lifelong fascination with fiction. He was a colorful character who was loved by many close and loyal friends, his family said. Although his injuries were deep both physically and emotionally, his generosity and the goodness of his heart were constant. Survivors include his mother, of Alhambra, Calif.; his mother-in-law, Cornelie Craven, of Boulder; a brother, Randolph; Stick Ware, of Boulder; and a sister, Mary Ann Ware, of Portland, Ore. A memorial gathering will take place 3 to 6 p.m. Sept. 23 at Rockies Brewing Co., 2880 Wilderness Place, Boulder. Pierce Brothers Mortuary, of San Gabriel, Calif., handled arrangements.
