My late father was a bit of a renaissance man. A WWII veteran, a casual race-car driver, a corporate executive, a published author, and an accomplished skier, surfer, swimmer, carpenter, plumber, electrician, sailor, and boat builder. Whew! That list wears me out! He was also a music lover and enjoyed his collection of jazz records, including what he thought might be the largest Django Reinhardt collection in the state.
He served on the school board for the regional high school for many years and was an active and respected member of that organization. He really liked helping the students however he could. He was instrumental in starting up the school sailing club, which met regularly and taught interested high school students the art and skills of sailing small boats.
