  1. Very sad news!
    He was only a few months older than me.

  2. He was 48, Max was 9. He and Max were running home from a store where they went to buy a kite to fly and he fell ill in front of a neighbor's home, who tried to revive him along with his wife Valentina, who was his second wife of a few years and mother to their daughter Sophia. Max has a twin sister and they are from his first marriage. He is loved and missed. He had a very bright light and was fit and healthy from all any of us could see. He was biking all the time. Sad and morality tale to hug those you love, argue less and love more. He loved his family fiercely.
