Jamie Stephenson Obituary, Death – The sad news that a Halloween legend in the city had gone away was broken to us late last night. He had been a longtime contributor to the holiday. Jamie Stephenson, the individual who was responsible for the conception of the Baxter Avenue Morgue, has just left the building. Jamie had spent the better part of four decades sharing his love for the Halloween festival with people from all over the world, as he had been a fan of the event for his entire life.
In the distant past, he was also associated in Haunted Run and Nightmare Run, both of which are video games that are quite comparable to Danger Run. During the 1990s, he was an active participant in the Nightmare Network. Not only was he involved in the production of the Baxter Avenue Morgue, but he also worked on the establishment of the first Caufield’s Halloween Parade. The loss of Jamie, who was essential in the development of Halloween into what it is today in Louisville, has made the glow of our jack-o’-lanterns a little bit less brilliant.
We would want to express our thanks to the tens of thousands of people in the surrounding region whose lives have been improved by the memories and traditions that you have built. We would like to say thank you for everything that you have done. During this difficult time, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your loved ones. Rest in peace Jamie.
