My condolences to his family. He was relatively young too and accomplished.

I am glad that the family (or obituary writer) wrote the cause of death as lung cancer. Not alot of "public" people have admitted it and just recently this is the second time I've seem lung cancer specifically mentioned. I hope people take notice of it.

As always, Thanks Christine.
