We said goodbye to a fine, gentle man last week.
He left us much, much too early. He was just 63.
His death was sudden, adding to the intensity of the loss we all felt.
He was a man who took great pride in his work, but never sought accolades. He just wanted to get the job done. Perhaps some would say he was a workaholic.
He was a man with an enormous work ethic, who also loved to play, to have fun. He smiled. A lot. That smile coupled with a mischievous twinkle in his eye will be what many will remember the most.
