Roger Horchow, the Dallasite who created The Horchow Collection catalog and produced the now-classic Broadway musical, “Crazy for You,” died Saturday morning in his Dallas home with his three daughters. It came after a short battle with cancer, his daughter Sally Horchow confirmed. He was 91. Sally said there would be no memorial service.
“Dad wanted to be at his own memorial,” she said, “and since he can’t, we thought we’d honor his wishes.”
