81 years old, sometimes irascible Marine veteran who loved his family and had zero tolerance for bullsh*t. Taught me everything I needed to know about being a righteous, honest living man, and the value of personal integrity. Never had much time for music, but he knew I loved it, even if he wasn't sure why. I'll be listening to Mountain Jam in a few minutes, but right now the first thunderstorm of the season is passing through. Must be him making his presence known up there. He wasn't a man easily ignored at 6'3" and 220 lbs, bearing a strong resemblance to Sean Connery. I loved him, and I'm gonna miss him; we were pretty close, especially in his later years. COPD took him down, but not without a fight. RIP, Pop.

My condolences to you Mikhail- I too lst my father last month to COPD & the related ailments. It was very difficult these past few years seeing him in a weakend stage and I know he's in a better place now. My best wishes to you over the coming weeks in hopes for smooth dealings with the settling of things.

Thanks, everyone; I just needed a place to set it down. This community is special to me, even if I don't make it "home" too often. I appreciate the support.

Mikhail & Family, sincere condolences

sounds a lot like my Pop. When I really feel at a loss and miss him more than I can bear, I remind myself how lucky I was to have a Father like that...

Sorry for your loss. Prayers sent. It's a tough one but it will get better.
Lost my Dad 21 years ago. But memories are a Great Thing.
Find myself using his dumb quotes often

I lost my Dad almost a year ago to COPD, diabetes and heart disease. He was my best friend and we were closer than any father and son I've known. I still think about him every day, especially around 8am because that's when he would always call me. I still can't get used to not getting that call anymore. It's tough to handle sometimes but it helps if you have a great support around and thankfully, I do.

Hang in there, my friend
