Talented man, painter, photographer, trumpet player, his favorite musician was Louis Armstrong, one of the most influential people in Jazz music.
Our father, for many of you who knew him, was a spiritual, shy, solitary, kind, generous and endearing man. He was a man whose heart was filled with kindness and that kindness was palpable in his presence.
For those who have reached out to dad in the past few years, thank you. We will miss his love, his mark of tenderness, his sense of humor and his words of encouragement.
We would like to warmly thank the Villa du Repos for the comfort and affection given to Dad and the family.
A private service will be held at Passage Chapel at a later date.
To those who wish, we ask to make a donation to the Mira Foundation.
