May 21, 1940 - December 12, 2021
On December 12, 2021, Laurence Goodfriend Stillpass passed away peacefully at home with his wife of 57 years by his side. Laurence, known as "Larry" was born on May 21, 1940 in Cincinnati, Ohio to Julia and Harold Stillpass. Larry lived life to the fullest and encouraged all he knew to do the same. He loved art, antiques, music, culture and travel. He was a voracious reader and gardener, and enjoyed gathering family and friends together to share good food, drink and conversation. He was a member of the Mercantile Library and "The Board." Larry served on the Board of the Contemporary Art Center in the late 1970s and early 1980s where he also organized tours of private art collections. The Children's Psychiatric Center, Cincinnati Parks Foundation and Friends of Findlay Market were organizations he supported. On weekends Larry enjoyed giving public tours about the importance and history of Findlay Market. He believed in the power of community and fought for affordable housing in the East End. Larry attended Walnut Hills High School, graduating in the class of 1958, and went on to graduate from the University of Cincinnati in 1962. He started his career in investments at the Hayden Stone Company before founding Collier Stillpass, an investment advisory firm. He later moved into real estate brokerage and investment with Espy Straus. There he specialized in residential and commercial real estate and development, and eventually started his own firm, Laurence G. Stillpass, Inc. He is survived by his beloved wife Ellen K. Stillpass, and his children H. Alexander Stillpass (Lisa Pennekamp), Paul E. Stillpass (Rebecca), Sarah H. Stillpass Rosenbach (Andrew) and his grandchildren Natalie C. Stillpass, Sarah A. Stillpass, Lula M. Rosenbach and Julius H. Rosenbach. The family will have a private memorial. Tributes in Larry's name and memory can be made to The Cincinnati Parks Foundation, Friends of Findlay Market, The Mercantile Library or The Walnut Hills High School Alumni Association.
