Message 1992736 - Posted: 5 May 2019, 22:19:46 UTC

Today May 5th, 2019 my father Steve lost his battle with cancer. He died peacefully while resting.

He was passionate about SETI, and that obviously rubbed off on myself. I will carry on contributing as much as I can in his name. A great deal of my interests in science and technology are attributed to him. Some of my fondest memories are our late night talks about technology and the universe.

Some other facts about him. He served in the USAF during Vietnam. He was a self taught musician, and not too shabby on the piano. He loved photography and reading. He loved all animals (grew up on a farm in Michigan) but was especially fond of the kitties. He had 7 children, myself included, who all loved him very much.

Rest in peace, Dad. We'll miss you.
