Heuwell Tircuit

San Francisco music critic Heuwell Tircuit died on Monday, June 7, 2010, at age 78. Obits are here:
Tircuit's career at the Chron ended rather abruptly in 1987; Michael's obit has accounts from Robert Commanday and Janos Gereben indicating that Tircuit wasn't treated fairly at all.

But there was so much more to know: about his Army service, the years in Japan, the music degree acquired comparatively late, that he was a composer. We met only once, and I'm sorry I didn't know him better.
