Claude, has been my barber for more years than I can remember. His easy going manner and dry humor were a respite on a busy day. Weather I got the "Grooms cut, the board room cut or the vacation cut", he always made me look better than I deserved. You will be missed my friend.

I knew Claud for thirty-five years and enjoyed every one of them. Whether the talk was of motorcycles, masters swimming, yoga, massage or various Zen states, Claude always had an informed opinion or word of advice. I'll miss his calm presence and friendship.

Claude was my first yoga teacher at Ranjana's yoga studio. I saw a large man pull into the parking lot on a motorcycle. He was quite a presence, looking a bit overwhelming - I didn't know he was the yoga teacher. After a few minutes, I got over my perception of what a yoga teacher might look like, and realized he was a presence and teacher in so many ways. It's been a long time since I had a class with him, but his lessons never left me. With gratitude and love, Vicki

An ALWAYS upbeat, smart, and very good friend...Claude enjoyed who and where he was. I recall his getting into alpine skiing. He was always eager to get out there (photo from Vail trip). I (and surely ALL who knew him) will miss Claude and wish him Godspeed on his next adventure!
