The late John Horlivy was a teacher who was married to my friend Jean for a time. He and Jean moved to Milwaukee, so I didn't have a chance to get to know him very well, and I didn't hear much of him after the divorce.
The other day I learned of John's death on October 17th through an email that directed me to a memorial website where there was a link to John's blog, called Words Worth. It turns out that John loved words, especially the ones he found "curious, odd or puzzling", and he shared what he learned about them on his blog.
Visiting the memorial website and reading the blog made me wish that I had known him.
