a friend…

Spread the love


… passed away yesterday. Tog and I used to MC the boy scout campfires in our younger days.

I reconnected with him a few years ago and BLOGGED about the reconnection (after 33 years). The post is actually the first emails we exchanged. Through it I think you will be able to pick up the zest he had for life.

We will all miss you, my friend. Happy trails.

EDIT: Tog was quite an accomplished maverick in the nature world.. Bananas.org has a memorium posting HERE which includes pictures.


  1. oh my friend, i am sorry for your loss. i’m glad the two of you were able to reconnect in recent times but sorry he has gone too soon.

    hugs to you.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about his passing, I know it was a good time reminescing with him.

  3. So glad you were able to find each other once again in the digital age. This is shaping into a tough month, but how lucky you are to have so many wonderful memories of all the people you have known and love.

  4. I’m not sure if you were at my dad’s wake, but I have a group photo of you guys. How can I send it to you?

  5. Stephanie,
    I would also like to see the picture. Your Dad and I were going to get together when I got to China (even though he swore he would not set foot there, hahaha) to go fishing and plant exploring.
    I was arranging to send him about 20-30,000 seeds for various plants since I cannot bring them into China.
    Perhaps someday we will meet. I would like to visit his grave and say my hellos and good byes. What a great guy!

    With deepest sympathy,
