Adios, Tommy

Tommy ("Andy") Marjos stopped abruptly his facebook. His firstborn son Andres pasted a black ribbon on his; his granddaughter Carolina wrote a poem that she wished had been closer to him, all suggesting that he is gone. We arrived at the same time to Argentina, in 1956. His father died soon after and he was brought up by his mother. Had no relatives anywhere in the world. He married a Swiss German girl, had three kids then divorced because she was cheating on him with his best friend. Moved to Comodoro Rivadavia, married a criolla and had more kids ("Hay que poblar la Patagonia!") and ended his life quite content, surrounded by a big family. The pic is recent, it is his daughter's fifteenth birthday or her election as Miss Comodoro. His best times were during the Chile-Argentina War, when he worked for the Army intelligence as photographer. He emphasized his ethnic Hungarian roots and hid his Jewish origin, it was healthier in the environment he lived and worked; only lately he started to comment on Facebook about Jews in a positive tone. Adios, Tommy.
