Tribute to Zafer Estill
Thursday night after midnight I was called my my distraught brother, Lyle who shared the terrible news that his son was dead. I could hardly understand what he was saying. I did not want to understand it.
His obituary is here.
A promising young man whose life was cut short.
He was polite, kind and interested in life. Because he knew I liked business, when we were together, he talked about business. I thought he had potential to be a great business person because of his natural interest.
I recall once he did a run of tshirts and sold them for $20 US each. Even for uncle Jim, this margin seemed a bit much. But I was visiting and he was away. I took one from his stash and left a $20 bill. How better to support a budding business person than buying their product.
I remember him reading Business Week magazine that my father had on his coffee table.
The photo is from a few years ago but of course I remember him as a child.
Now to cry...
