He was a writer, philosopher, poet, scholar and critic of religious extremism of all sorts. He was an inventor, problem solver and delightful friend.
Those who were lucky enough to know him loved him. His generosity and kindness were rarely matched, and he truly never met a stranger. He gave shelter to the homeless, and loving support to his friends and family.
His fireplace was a refuge on chilly days, and source of peace and inspiration to him.
With his white ponytail and white goatee, he was a familiar figure in town, riding his bicycle, observing the sunrise on the dock, meditating on the marsh. He was a good, good man, and will be much missed.
Services were private. A celebration of his life will take place at a later date.
The family offers grateful thanks to Heartland Hospice for its loving support.
