I dedicate this web-site to the memory of Barry Nolte (May 8, 1932 – April 26, 2015).
My father, my friend, my mentor, my hero. I have been blessed with your love and wisdom. You taught me to pursue my passions and gave me your love of attaining as much knowledge for my passions as possible through reading. Your extensive and diverse library, which has becoming legendary to all who know you, is a testament to your pursuit of learning. This is your legacy to me, my brother, my sister and your grand children.
You showed to all whose lives you touched as a talented and accomplished musician, with the joy of laughter, the power of friendship and your passion for life. You never let hardship or bad luck keep you down. You raised a family with out having a family role model during your childhood. You learned through the school of hard-knocks and graduated with honours.
