than a typical DJ. He was heavily engaged in the Portland community; he seemed like a really nice guy who loved his city, loved music, and very clearly loved his wife.
He was eloquently blogging about his bout with cancer, and that made me feel like I got to know him a tiny bit better. He was incredibly brave in the face of his debilitating, terminal illness.
Sadly, he lost his battle last night. KINK Radio has been doing an all-day long tribute to him.
I feel so sad.
