I'm sorry to hear it, my condolences to his family.

I looked him up for a partial refret a couple of years ago, he invited me to his shop and did the work while I waited. He did most of the talking, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and pumped him from time to time to steer the conversation in directions that interested me. It was a fascinating visit, he was quite a character.
