I've spent many many hours reading about bear and about his life........what an interesting and intelligent man....the world has become darker since he left. Bear may the light inside you guide you home. You will be missed!

I wrote him once just to have some communication with someoone who changed the paths of so many lives including my own. My closing line was, "I see that you are 71; I'm glad that the world has had so many good years." The world is certainly poorer for the loss of him.

Owsley,
You will be missed greatly and honored in memory. You have always been, although unknowingly by you until recently; one of the single most influential figures in my life. I will forever carry on your legacy to the best of my ability.

Growing up with a cousin like Owsley was an experience. He left us with memories, stories, and wonder. His free spirit was a gift from his Mother, and he used it well.

First Hunter S. and now Owsley. How these great Kentuckians have influenced so many. The world is a much scarier place without them. Proud to be from the Bluegrass.
March 27, 2011
Godspeed Bear. You opened our world in ways we could not have imagined. My world in particular was forever changed. I would not be who I am without your contribution and the risks and punishment you took for us all. Thank you for the beautiful stealie. Inspiration moved us brightly. My thoughts are with your family. JB

So long farewell. You will be greatly missed! See you on the other side. Thank you for encouraging me to come to Australia. I am glad I did. Please say hello to dear Shadow for me and tell him I miss him he was one fantastic dog.

Lots of love to you & of course Sheilah and the whole Stanley family. It was a sad day on this planet when you left.

A visionary in every field of endeavor he attempted. We are all better off in so many ways that he was among us. He helped us feel and hear and see. I think of him every time I listen to a tape of the Dead.Every time I see the "marching" (not dancing) bears. Every time I see a Skull and Bolt.

Bear was a mighty man in our tribe.

Bloomers, Prof. Sunshine were present at the beginning of the age of enlightenment. I and my family offer our sincere condolences to the Stanley family.

My family of 5 friends and I had the honor of really knowing Bear. He was at times quirky, but always amazingly intelligent and thought provoking. We were very lucky to spend years off and on the road with him and the Grateful Dead. He was truly Talented and BRILLIANT!
Much love forever Bear, we will NEVER forget you!

How SAD! Owsley was truly a man who changed history in a totally indescribable way, opening the "Doors of Perception" for literally millions of people.
Don't tell the government, but I'd drop a hit of Owsley again on a moments notice.
Have a good trip!

What a great slice of life he was! I happen to feel psychedelics were never researched adequately; they just might have very good applications. We are such prudes and always blaming others for individual drug abuse, which is a problem, ONLY to be solved by individual, not govt.
Rest in Peace Mr.O! I hope we find the good gifts that might come from psychedelic research.

Hey Bear
