Died: 2013-12-13
Age: 80
Cause: Cancer

This is my father, who passed away. Maybe he isn't as famous as many others on this list, but he was a great musician and producer who worked with some great names in the jazz genre for many years. Just to mention some names, Zoot Sims, Stan Getz, Toots Thielemans, Sylvia Vrethammar, Sivuca, Tony Scott and many others. Dad died in his sleep after going to the hospital to check on what they thought was cancer in his liver. Three days later he was no longer with us. He was a fantastic man and loved by so many people. We will miss our father a lot. And I want him to be on this list, since he was always an idol to me. Staffan Öfwerman, lostidols.com
