More on P.Stockhausen’s death
August 20.1948–February 18, 2016
I understand that Stockhausen’s estranged wife (Karen) is preparing a statement and this will be later published here on this blog. For now I will limit myself to some small details of his passing:
Peter passed away at 9:15 pm MST on Thursday evening in hospital at Cranbrook, alone. He had broken his leg and was suffering respiratory problems. The hospital said Peter deliberately refused any treatment and the recommended surgery and procedures that would have saved his life. Because he had not given the hospital any family contacts when he was admitted, as soon as Peter died his case was passed on to the coroner’s office. Only indirectly did his wife and daughter (Silken) learn of his death.
