My Grandfather John Pace was a distinguished, passionate man with a variety of skills. My dad and Uncle Nick are both great artists, but Grandfather ran the show. My Grandfather was incredibley charismatic and smart. The Grand-father, as we call him, dabled in many things throughout his life. He served in the war, drove racecars, had a knack for gambling, poker and black jack, and painted occasionally.
His first wife was Native American, my dad's mom. She passed when my dad was only 14. When my dad met my mom he was excited to learn she too was California Indian (Pitt-River Tribe). So, he introduced her to John right away. She later admitted that she was more taken with John than my dad! She says he was not only handsome but full of character. When he passed he said, "Ah, yes. I think I'll die now." That's how he was. He was ready for anything. His life was full and he was truly anticipating the next phase in his journey. The last time I talked to him, he sounded just like that. Very put together, never sweating the small stuff. He sounded at least 20 years younger than he actually was. As far as his work, it lives on through us. On our walls and above our fireplaces. His spirit travels still in those paintings.
