Wild Man Bliss

 

No one is faster with a crossword pen than Milton Bliss, paterfamilias of the Bliss clan. At age 92, he's still a force to be reckoned with. A music teacher at N. C. State for 26 years, he imbued hundreds of choral students with a love of music and still remembers all of their names!

 

As if that weren't enough, he's a lifelong Democrat and anti-Trumpian.

 

His girlfriend cuts his hair. Why do you ask?

He's the sort of guy who could be my hero Larry. Obviously he's yours..
Larry Bliss: In addition to the accolades I have already given, he served in signals intelligence in WW2, was musical director for several musicals, and composed several dozen pieces. He was also winning running medals into his eighties.

He sounds a great person and the Bliss clan can be immensely proud of him.
Larry Bliss: For all of that, he is essentially a humble man.
Bravo, Mr Bliss.

It must be almost time for your annual vacation with your dad.
Looks as though he's going strong - ready for another 20 years!
He exudes a love of life Larry
