yes, he passed on this last year. i am his illegitimate daughter. i found him via this site about 6/7 years ago. he was manipulative and a user. i must say, i'd rather not know than find what i did. he knew about me since i was born (1977), lived in the same town and chose to not interact... he also was consistently attracted to teenage women. whom he had children with. don't be fooled by his intellectual posts. he is/ was an ass. sorry to be rude, but it's the truth.
