Thread Name: Obit: Jerry Epstein (1941-2015)
Subject: RE: 2015 Obit: Jerry Epstein
I knew Jerry for over forty years, after meeting him for the first time when he came to a club I was running in Nottingham He was multi-talented and he put his talents to use as a singer, musician, organiser,singing teacher and all-around champion of and for traditional music. He was also a PHD in Physics. To me, and my family he was first and foremost a stalwart friend. Many of our adventures in the USA we owe to him. His passing is a hard blow for us, a huge loss to the folk world, but most of all to his wife Clarice, whose devoted nursing of him through his illness was total. Our condolences to you dear Clarice, we admire you for your efforts,you did everything you could to ease his pain. Jerry was a person of the 'once met, well remembered' kind. I, and my family will never forget him.
