This front page obit today noting the passing of Leroy “Nab” Inabinet bore a headline that any man should aspire to.
I suppose there are other attributes by which one would wish to be remembered — “good father,” “loving husband.” Some may aspire to the status of “hero.”
But you can only get so much into a headline, and in a newspaper it’s most appropriate to refer to the public side of a subject’s character.
With that in mind, it’s hard to beat this tribute.
It’s the sort of thing that makes me wish I’d known Mr. Inabinet, and feel a sense of loss because I did not.
Those who did were fortunate, and are no doubt reflecting on that today.
He sounds like a really cool guy!
