I had to write another obituary today. It wasn’t as easy.
But it was interesting. Someone I was less familiar with. It’s ironic that I learned so much about Levon Helm’s life in his death. My boss was very sincerely moved by his passing and so it became my responsibility to honor that. I love that responsibility. I take it seriously.
And so here’s what I wrote. Before it get’s edited and cut up, or thrown out all together… after reading about this impressive man for a few hours today, above is what I was driven to produce.
