Quinton Duval

In the "Remembrances" section of The Sacramento Bee, these words were written about Quinton Duval.

"A man of elegance, great charm and wit, Quinton could make a song out of anything. He will be missed by all who knew him."

For those of you who have wondered, "there will be no formal service [at his request]. Donations in his name may be made to the Quinton Duval Fund/Sacramento Poetry Center, 1719 25th Street, Sacramento, CA 95816."

My thoughts go to those left behind: his wife (Nancy), brothers (William and John), and sister (Clare), as well as all of the people whose lives were touched from having known Quinton as a friend or mentor, from having read his words, or from having heard him read.

It's all just sinking in now. I heard Dan Penn's song "I hate you" tonight and I thought of Q because he would tweak words in that quick, funny way he had. He was, of course, a fine poet, but he was also a wonderful lyricist. But more than all that, he was a great friend and mentor. We're all gonna miss you a long time, Friend.
