has any active sf'er ever died? - Page 7
very very sad indeed. i met him a few times, and he really was a great guy. as nice a guy as can be, a real mentch. he passed away from lung cancer.
a friend of mine worked for him, and told me about a month or so ago that KO was very ill. i saw my friend again over the weekend and he informed me that KO had passed. the cancer was pretty fast i think, he was not ill for a long time i believe. he leaves behind a wife and a son, and both his parents are still living as well. he was only 55. really sad. ill miss him.
A couple of years back I was in one of the Bespoke shoe makers in Mayfair.
Being a regular the store manager asked if I was interested in 2 particular
pair of bespoke shoes...at knock down prices...i.e. £500 a pair. As bespoke
in this store would set you back £2500 at the time...
They looked bespoke because of the fine finishing but ugly because of the
wide width and high-instep...they were half a size to big so I turned them down...
I was curious to know why the client hadn't pick them up - the shop owner
told me the guy passed away 2/3 months prior to collecting them...
The shoes were fully paid for - so the shop wasn't sitting on a loss.
