Man, that sucks. Judging from the article you were my kind of guy:

Friends describe him as polarizing, both personable and caustic. He looked like an old Ernest Hemingway with thick hair, a full beard and sun-soaked skin. He even had an unpublished manuscript on board — “The Drunken Monkey” — that he wrote.
He didn’t own a house because that tied him to the land, and land tied him to the rules — in 2002, he listed an Oshawa harbour dock as his home. He loved the freedom and peace of the sea. He taught social studies and French at a Barrie high school, but “didn’t really get along with other teachers.”
Fair winds on your new journey John Batchelor.
