His name is Bob. Not "Young".He was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer in November of 2007, not 2006.My father lived a long incredibly full life of 67 years, and he only had cancer for the last TWO of them, but his (to use the author's own words) "death sentence" seems to be a large focus of this article.
This piece feels way too impersonal to have been written by a close friend, and definitely written by an author of dramatic books. It's very clear she knew him as a doctor, and not as the PERSON the way his family and friends have the honor of knowing him.
And yes, opening Wimbleton Tavern on De La Vina WAS one of the many adventures he had in addition to his medical career achievements.
Reading this has motivated me to re-write everything I had previously prepared to say at his memorial tomorrow afternoon.
