(Now you really didn’t think I was going to use “the tag line” did you?)
What an interesting life (though, with nine kids, it sounds like he was as prolific as a tribble:- ). It also sounds like “Star Trek” was just a part of his long story (and I salute his ability to father a child at 80!).
He had been sick for the last few years, so I’m glad he’s finally in a better place.
