John passed away on August 10th. His wife posted this obituary today.
I knew John mainly through his posts at Part-Time Audiophile and periodic updates on his Facebook page. I admired his writing and the strength he showed while dealing with multiple serious health problems — ones that would have set anyone else back on their heels. But not John.
We can take a certain amount of consolation in the grace, dignity and good humor with and through which he navigated his difficult last few years.
We need more like him and I hope his life and words inspire others. I know they inspire me.
The obituary (with additional photos) has been reposted on Part-Time Audiophile.
