R.I.P. Patrick Townson, September 24, 1942 - August 9, 2014 (Bill Horne)

There are advantages, you know, to being judgment-proof and obnoxious, to boot.
When I die, I expect to be intestate; let the creditors scream all they want.

Patrick Townson, September 24, 1942 - August 9, 2014 Message-ID: <> I just returned from a brief vacation, and read an email from Mike Sandman that told me Patrick Townson has been gathered up. There is an obituary online, but it's not very informative, and I've written to Pat's brother to ask for more information. The URL is . I had talked to Pat, on and off, since his second stroke. The last time was very early this year: I'm sorry to say that I realized at that time that Pat was no longer in touch with his surroundings, and that I'd never get to ask him to set out the details of his life and times that he wanted to be remembered for. I'd like to write a better story about Pat than what's availalbe now, so anyone with details on his education, life, relationships, accomplishments, and family is welcome to send them to my personal address. Thanks in advance.
