I didn’t know Quinn Driscoll, but my business partner Scott did quite well.
Quinn was Scott’s son.
Word completely fail in a moment like this, when a 13 year old young man suddenly collapses and dies. My heart bursts for my longtime friend and business partner.
Let me tell you about Quinn by what I know about his father.
His father loved being his father. Coaching, exploring, learning. Scott’s an involved dad, a precious commodity we can all learn from.
His father has a generous heart. He gives his time, he gives his money.
His father is a visionary. He understands the implications of circumstances, statistics, trends.
His father is an encourager. He loves coaching kids’ ball teams, realizing he has a rare chance to be a strong male role model in the lives of many kids who may not have that.
And his father is a friend. He has given me encouragement, vision, and a belief in myself one values more highly than money.
I’ve little doubt that Quinn would have been all this and more, standing on the strong shoulders of his dad.
