My father Bob at the beach in Carlsbad, CA, a few years before he passed away. He loved the banjo and singing traditional/folk/gospel songs. He loved people and they loved him. During his rich and long life (1925-2009), he reinvented himself several times: farmer, conscientious objector, preacher, house builder, high school teacher, family man, novelist, politician, restauranteur, beekeeper, banjo-raconteur, newspaper-blogger, and general rabble-rouser... I miss him!
