Dad recorded a segment for My Classical Story for NPR and you can listen to it here:
He had about as happy a death as possible. He died peacefully at home surrounded by family. He left this earth on a dad joke, so we know “The Joke That Kills” (Monty Python).
A special thank you to the Ascension Live At Home staff for their caring service. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a donation in his honor to your favorite charity that supports Veterans.
A celebration of life for Jude’s friends and family is planned for later in March. He was deeply loved and will be missed by all.
