huge house in Sausalito and had a 40-foot sail boat tied up over there. He
did always drive a beat up old VW Bug and he loved to smoke weed - HE
RECENTLY DIED OF CANCER... Also Bob Morrow the jazz teacher who played
stand up Bass also died some years ago - he was so thrilled when you were
teaching those classes at Opp High...
