Remember the beer commercial "the most interesting man in the world". IMO that was Jorg. Grew up in Berlin, learning scientific glass blowing from his dad, ran from American bombers at 15, later left for the French Foreign Legion, jumped ship along the Australian shoreline, became a chemistry glass blower for University in Canberra, while in Australia became the first person to ever ride a whale shark in the open ocean, came to US and was the first person hired at the brand new UCI campus in Irvine where he ended up as the longest duration employee at the University, blowing glass for the chemistry dept. . Invented and developed a solvent system used in chemistry depts in universities throughout the world, an expert falconer, and free diver (see photo I took in the Corral Sea), proud owner and racer of the Ford GT-identical to the one in Ferrari v Ford, rescued Desi Arnaz and Georg Seifert (49er coach) off the coast of Baja when their boat sank and became close friends of Bing Crosby's daughter Mary (who shot JR Ewing), teaching her to free dive against the wishes of her dad,

Most important he became our closest and dearest friend since I met him in the early 60s. We occasionally fought like brothers (many years ago we didn't speak to each other for 6 months over a minor disagreement) Wednesday we go to the island to bring back the boat along with his body.
