Wow, just got word of this tonight, I'm very sad to hear this....he was a talented and great guy.
I remember a story told to me while I was visiting our late friend Pat King and his wife Bobbie in Alabama in 2000. Cisco had also stayed there during his cross country trip visiting other Letterheads. Pat had asked Cisco to park in a particular spot, it was dark, and Cisco had no idea where that special spot was ....until sometime in the middle of the night. Cisco had been soundly asleep for a couple of hours when he was awakened suddenly by the flashing of lights, the ringing of bells and a very loud and sudden train whistle!!! Cisco bolted upright and was terrified that he had possibly parked on railroad tracks!!! What Pat had 'failed to mention' was that the train passed right through their backyard several times a day and once at night.
I remember several years ago he visited here at my shop for a weekend. We took the ferry to Victoria, BC for the day. We walked around downtown and drank Canadian beer and looked at the signs. Also went to the Provincial Museum. We had a great time. I also took him on a VIP tour of our underground city. He took a misstep and put his foot thru the ceiling of a downtown business. What a great sign artist and all around good guy.
You will be missed my friend. Journey well.
