Steven R. Traisman

A Tribute to our Father, A man who was bigger than life.

Steven R. Traisman, born April 19, 1953, in Chicago, Illinois to the late Marjorie E. Traisman and Dr. Robert N. Traisman, passed Friday, October 31, 2008. He will always be remembered in our hearts for endlessly expressing how much he loves and admires us, reminding us not to worry, his passion for sharing wisdom, inscribing every book, translating Bob Dylan lyrics, blasting Grateful Dead on road trips, holding his cell phone up at Michael Franti concerts and at the ocean for us to hear, treating his community as his family, believing in unity among all people, seeing life in all things, and teaching us how to make offerings to the earth. We're holding you up to the light, Dad. We love you so much!
