A Remembrance by Tony Girifalco
Esteemed scientist, influential teacher, trusted colleague, gifted orator, prolific writer, voracious reader.
Pianist, guitarist, sailor, marksman, photographer, chef.
A son, a grandson, a brother, a cousin, a nephew, an uncle, a friend.
He was a father, grandfather, great grandfather and, above all, a husband. He was—and is—loved and admired greatly by many. He made everyone he touched feel special, which was easy for him…because they were. When he talked to you he made you feel like the most important person in the world…because at that moment you were.
He was something else! Authentic. Brilliant! Soulful. Loving.
Thank you everyone…for the kindness of stopping by to help us say goodbye to my father.
