Paul DeKock has died.
Place the western stars
side by side
To light his way
On this November night.

Oh prince of passion!
No more to go a roving
Over the roiling seas.

You introduced us to Max Lerner,
America as a Civilization,
The divinity of each.
You embodied the love affair
With our country.

You too sang America,
Introducing us
To "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd"
A fragrance I knew not.
Oh Paul, I know of lilacs now.

How best to remember him?
Carry his passion for learning,
Sprigs of lilacs, pictures of Thoreau,
Emerson, Whitman -
Decorate the house!
Water from Walden too!
Paul, for all you gave, thank you.

This is Joel Craddock from the Glenner Center group. I was so sorry to learn of Paul's passing. Just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you. I can only imagine what a difficult time this is for you but please know that there are many of us sending you good thoughts for strength and healing.

I am so very sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss. I was a student of his at El Capitan. Loved him as a teacher. Remember and share stories with my children often. Thank you for being such an inspiring teacher, Mr. Dekock. Peace be with you and your family.
