We received word yesterday that Far Guy’s cousin Stevie died from “lung problems.”
Stevie was 70 years old earlier this month. Stevie was a bit of a loner and lived in Missouri. He stayed in contact with his sister and occasionally his father. He was a USAF Veteran. He is survived by his daughter, his father, his sister, one half sister and four half brothers. He was preceeded in death by his mother and a sister.
Every 5 or 10 years Stevie would come to Minnesota. I did not see him the last time he visited but in 2008 I took a photo of him and Far Guy.

"A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth.
It is better to go to a house of mourning, than to go to a house of feasting,
for death is the destiny of everyone ; the living should take this to heart." Ecclesiastes 7 :1-2
