Thank you for sharing this and I'm sorry to hear he has passed. No one can say he didn't live a full life.
I had the privilege of meeting him once at a public presentation, a long time ago. He struck me as a solid and credible man and that always stuck with me.
Rest in Peace, and perhaps some answers are now his.
