OBIT | Jordan Gruzen, Bicycle Group Leader

The late Jordan Gruzen (right) leads a parent-child group on a bike tour of Block Island, c. 1988.
On Father's Day I found this photo of the late Jordan Gruzen, who headed up the bicycle tour of Block Island that Alice and I participated in. Jordan obviously enjoyed the trip and the kids all seem happy.

Jordan was a devoted father.

The finish times of the participants varied widely. I was the last to arrive. My job was to be at the end of the line, to help stragglers, of which there were a few - mostly problems with bicycles.

Here are some tributes to his remarkably productive life, which ended in January 2015.
