I was saddened when I got the phone call from my parents telling me that my dad's close friend and fishing partner Atwin had passed. When I was on the phone with my mom she said,"I will miss Atwin's big bear hugs and kind heart."

I am honored to say I met Atwin back in 2003 on a fly fishing trip to Loreto with my dad. I not knowing that they been friends for so many years, Atwin made me feel right at home as if he knew me for years.

I remember a couple years ago Atwin invited me out on his boat to chase some stripers and I will always be thankful for the info he shared with me about fly fishing the delta and his kind-hearted spirit.

It is a privilege to have known him and his late wife Bonnie.

I know my dad will truly miss you Atwin as many others will too.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
