I knew Bob Quinn. He and I started talking on the Ave when I first moved to Seattle in the early 1990s. Soon, we were talking every day as I worked at, first, Cellophane Square, and then later, AKA Books.

Funny to hear him described as cantankerous and such - he was never that way with me. He was patient and kind with my dumbass 20-something self-centered self.

I used to sit with him and Harris now & again in front of Tower Records and watch him offer clear-sighted compassion & understanding to those in need. I learned so much from him. It saddens me to no end that he died feeling alone and despairing.

RIP, Bob Quinn. Your death fills me with sorrow. I hope you and Harris and Moose are walking together and enjoying the sun in Fiddler's Green.
