Dana Schorr

Obituary Condolences

June 7, 1952 - August 5, 2015 After living a life worthy of a novel, fighting for social justice and exploring the world in search of rare gems, Dana Schorr died on August 5, 2015 in his beloved Santa Barbara, following a heart attack. He was 63. Dana channeled his 1960s activism into a successful career in precious stones. Never losing his passion for fair play and democratic values, he fearlessly spoke truth to power, both in his community and in his profession. At the same time, he joyfully embraced life to the fullest, as a patron of music, irrepressible dancer, and loyal and caring friend. He is survived by his mother Emmy Schorr, sister Wendy Schorr, brother-in-law Roger Lebow, and a community of friends reaching around the globe. A celebration of Dana's life will take place Tuesday, September 1, 6 - 9 PM, at Soho Restaurant, 1221 State Street #205, Santa Barbara.
