Very Sad News – Buzz Krantz

Buzz Krantz

It is with deep sadness that we must tell you the news that Buzz Krantz passed away today, Sunday, August 20th, 2023. Buzz attended the 60th Anniversary SPAH Convention in St. Louis as an honored SPAH Troubadour this past week. Last night, at the Awards Banquet, Buzz was awarded the 2023 President’s Award for his unparalleled contributions to the instrument and to the SPAH community. Buzz will be remembered for many things, especially the wonderful smile on his face last night upon learning of his award. He will be sorely missed. Buzz’s obituary is posted here.
