Dearest friends and family,
It is with great sadness that I share the news of my Father’s passing. Dad lived a good life, and his last weeks were filled with visits from friends, new and old, and family. People traveled from near and far to pay homage to the impact he made on their lives. He was surrounded by those he loved most.
His spirit is free, and he is no longer in pain. He survived for 10 years with prostate cancer. 6 weeks ago we all learned that the cancer had metastasized. Thankfully, I was able to get back to the USA to spend time with him and let him know that I love him. I cherish those moments, as well as the many memories of a life well lived.
In so many ways, I am my Father. The first born. The legacy builder. The devoted musician. The nerdy polymath. The aspiring polyglot. The glasses wearing, easy friend making, sci-fi loving, empathetic, goofy, loving human being.
My family and I honor him through emulating his dedication to lifelong learning, seeking spiritual guidance, finding love, laughter and light in all circumstances. Thank you, Dad, for the music, the laughs, the pranks and jokes, the long conversations, the strong and gorgeous DNA, and mostly, the love. I love you forever, Papasan…
