If you knew or ever met my Dad, you knew that music was his language and his heart and soul went into everything he created. Besides being a phenomenal guitar player, his ear for music was impeccable and led him to his engineering and producing career. Those who worked with him said his devotion to detail and perfection challenged them and they emerged better artists for it.
He had a vast knowledge of history and a deep interest in researching and understanding the world. He was fierce in his beliefs and stood by his principles. He was honest, authentic, sensitive, strong, intelligent, witty, and lived by his word. His friends and loved ones were dear to him. He was also pretty funny... you didn't know this right away but once you knew him it was a great part of his character. And when you could get a big smile from him, well that would just light up the room.
He was a Grandpa. He adored his grandchildren. Haze took to playing guitar naturally, it was in his blood and it was a great source of joy for my Dad. Haze looks and acts so much like him. First grandchild and only grandson, they had a special bond. His admiration for his granddaughters was always shared with them, cheering them on and reminding them of how precious and smart and beautiful they were. He never missed a chance to send a card expressing a funny joke but always ended it with a sincere admission of how deeply he loved them.
My Dad has been a source of advice, comfort, laughter, and friendship to me that seems impossible to live without. These words are too short and shallow to express the gravity of my love or our unique and unconventional relationship. We did things on our terms and had a sincere respect for one another. He was my support system and someone I always wanted to share every new thing with, and he was quick to listen. We shared so much and it was too short. I had more to learn from him and so many more years of love to give him. He inspired me, challenged me, encouraged me, and loved me; these are the gifts I will treasure forever.
