An amazing life and a career of high achievement at every level. We've lost a great Bearcat and a great Cincinnatian. My condolences to the family.

It's always sad when someone dies, but it stings a little less when someone lives a long, full life. In the past 15 years I've lost a lot of older family members, but all of them lived to be in their 80's or 90's and had fruitful lives, so while I mourned, I also celebrated.
