In Memoriam - Daniel Harold Leimeter

Written by: Dan Leimeter.
Dan himself wrote these lines, sometime in the early 2000s. He was a clever and humorous guy, and this memorial he wrote about himself reflects him and his sense of humor.

In Memoriam

Daniel Harold Leimeter
1941 - 2024

There's no getting around it, you know. He's as dead and gone as double-features at the movies, or carbon-arc lamp houses; but he lived a rich, complete life that he enjoyed to the fullest, so there's no reason for us to assemble to mourn his passing. To eat, drink, and carouse, yes; to tell naughty tales, absolutely; to mourn, never!

He will surely be forgotten by the world long before next Tuesday, so those of us who remain should focus our attention on the present and, of course, the future. Life is way too short to waste on tedious rituals examining the misadventures of people who no longer exist.

For those who enjoyed sharing his company, please know that the feeling was completely mutual. He wished all you long lives of easy affability, exciting adventure, and extraordinary affection.

For those who are quite pleased to have seen the last of him, he is equally as happy to be shut of you as you are of him. For those who are dancing indecorously on his grave, be aware that "Tempos" still continues to "Fugit" and that your well-deserved turn in barrel is inevitably coming, perhaps sooner than you may imagine.

In all of Western Literature, there is no faux-Latin phrase more apt than "Illegitimii Non Carburundum". Discover the world you inhabit; revel in its complex mixture of amazing people, amusing kittens, and astounding beauty. Rise up and stand in the light of the sun, turn your face into the breeze, and smile with confident sincerity.

Then get on out there and kick some ass!
