  4. He was what a sitcom makes out a dad to be. “Gonna miss you Doc!” As he loved to say, “In the event we go back to normal (disruption or decay ‘as all systems do with time’) I am scientist, so I Work hard to play hard”, his dedication to medicine, politics and adventure was great. He loved science beyond all thoughts. Your energy will be missed.
