John Beynon September 15th, 1939 to March 16th, 1995

20 years ago today John Beynon, my father, lost a brief and brutal battle with mesothelioma.  There is not a day goes by that I don't think of him and when I think of him I feel cheated.  Even after 20 years I still feel that it is so unfair that my children never got to know him, nor he them.  But like my father taught me - life isn't fair, but we should always try our best to be fair in spite of it.  Presented in no particular order save the first couple, here's a photo journey through my dad's life.
