Popi's two grandsons

Hello dear friends and family,

It is with deep sorrow that I have to announce the passing of my beloved father, friend, and business partner, Frederick A. Hightower, Jr. early Monday morning, December 21st, 2009.

His nearly two year bout with cancer came to an end very peacefully and quietly Monday morning.  His suffering was minimal.  Both my brother, Ryan and I were by his side at the time.  His dear girlfriend, closest companion and loving caretaker, Cyndie Mitchell, was with him the entire day before his passing.  He had received everything he needed and very acceptingly allowed his transition at 12:17 a.m.

Fred lived his life with a certain zest that you are probably familiar with.  He had an affinity for travel and he visited many corners of our world.  He loved the arts and architecture and was a master home builder where his talents were evident in his beautiful functional artwork.  His love for his children and grandchildren is permanently imprinted in our hearts.  Generosity was a trademark and fun was a standard ingredient in all his recipes for life.   His love for this physical life was only surpassed by his deep spiritual connection to his source, where he finally returned.

Fred embodied a wonderful sense of possibility and never had trouble moving on.  He firmly believed when one door closed, many others open.  The thrill was in the choosing and he loved nothing more than passing over new thresholds.  He passed through this last physical doorway with effortless ease.  Feel not sorry for him but grateful for the time, experiences and gifts he gave us.  He was not afraid, he was ready.

A service will be held at Sunday, December 27, 2009 at 4pm followed by a gathering afterwards.
