Enjoying the Simple Pleasures of Life, While Living in a Complicated World

James Placzek 1937-2010

James F. Placzek

Today, my oldest brother, James Placzek died at the age of 73.

He was decades older than myself and by the time I was born, had already begun traveling the world. After he retired, we became close and shared our interests in food, wine, traveling, computers and most of all, photography.

When James experienced a severe health problem two years ago, he came to live with our family. His quick wit and ability to enjoy a good laugh will be greatly missed by all of us.
