Han Kim shared a link “My stepfather Danny Rakowski has passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer. He was a private man and requested that there be no funeral but I wanted to take a moment to post something on my timeline to keep a record of this moment of loss. What I will remember most about him is that he was more of my friend than a father figure, although more than once he was there to keep me on the right path, and to support me when I was having troubles. He and I would share many late nights watching second string action movies, cheesy sci-fi or terribly dubbed kung fu films. We ate too many cookies together, and more cheese torte than a person should have in a lifetime. He was by and large a private, introverted person, but always generous, sincere and good hearted. We shared a love of cars and all things autmotive and more than once we would carry on geeking out about our mutual interest. Danny loved clocks of all sorts (the cukoos and chimes drove be batty). I told him that I loved him now and then, but not enough. I am saddended by his passing, but glad that his suffering is at an end. In quiet times of contemplation, my grief overwhelms me, but then it passes. I am honored to have shared part of my life with him and will miss his company greatly.”;
