Douglas Earl Eastwood (1924-2009)

Douglas Eastwood, my father, passed away about 10:30 PM on Friday, April 17, 2009. He was 84 years old, and had been suffering from dementia. I wanted to set up an online memorial for people to visit, and with my own recent interest in blogging setting this up as a blog seemed like the best approach. This also has the benefit of allowing visitors to respond and add their own comments. Dad was always interested in the latest trends in computers and technology, so I think he would have appreciated this too.

This photo is from Dad's 1969 passport . He would have been 45 years old when this was taken, almost exactly the same age as I am today.

Thought I intend to create a number of posts here myself, my intention was that this might be a group project, so family and friends are invited to submit posts here too. If you have a story or picture you would like to share, please contact me so it can be included here.
