I have been reading about your father with great interest. One thing that struck me the other day as a possibility, is the character Emmett Brown in the movie "Back to the Future" based on your father and anyway?
Because whenever I read these threads in my head I picture Doc Brown as your father from these movies, am I the only one who sees this?
It's also possible that the character Emmett Brown is a mix of scientists, he does have Einstein like hair.
